Dark Age Civilians - 2nd Painting Challenge Entry

For the first bonus round I frantically rummaged through my lead mountain as I couldn't remember if I've ever bought any civilian-like figures. The first thing I came over was a set of carts from Gripping Beast unfortunately lacking the drivers. Some time later I discovered these three gentlemen. 

They all are Westwind Miniatures from their fabulous Arthurian range. For the beggar I did a little conversion on a figure supposed to be a magician. I cut off the skull from his staff and turned round his left hand as to show him begging for some small coins.

I really liked to paint some non combatants and I think I'll add some more to my collection.

These three gentlemen gave me 15 points for the three 28mm figures themselves and another 50 points for beeing an entry for the bonus round.

Thanks for viewing and hope you enjoyed!

  8. Very, very nice. It's always a pleasure to see your bright colors on these figures. I guess i have to take a look to WestWind Miniatures. One Question - are Musketeer and Westwind compatible?
