The Wolf of Badenoch

Some Claymore Castings news

Andrew has been working on a new command pack for our Scots and English ranges. Here is one of the figures from that pack ' The Wolf of Badenoch'. I'll post more about this pack soon.

He has also been painting up some of our Highlanders as spear men for our 'Battle of Harlaw ' game that we plan soon.

A sneak preview of the next two packs from Claymore Castings. Ribaulds that can be used for lesser armed troops in the Scots or Highlander ranges. Could easily be used as Welsh or Irish.

It was great to see so many images of Claymore Castings in this months Wargames Soldier and Strategy. However three pictures of Claymore Castings Highlanders were wrongly credited as being painted by myself, actually they were done by the talented  Darren where credit is due...I wish that I could paint like that :) Sorry Darren for the mix up.

The figure so far, shown next to a painted one.

So there ends the test tutorial videos for today.
Step1-Cleaning up the figures.
Step3-The face- base Colour.
Step4-Washing the figure with ink.

Well, I got the videos filmed and uploaded! I think it will get better as time goes on. I'll try and do some more tomorrow but it is family time now. I hope you guys get a lot out of this effort.
