The project was to create a half-page border for each of the range of 28mm figures, which reflects their culture, images that arise from that world, rather than pictures of it, to impart a sense of authenticity. So the images decorate a imagined 10th Century chronicle of the red box world, in a quasi-monastical tradition.
Thumbnails are quite small, so click the images to make them bigger.
|Aenglish Footmen miniatues|
Aenglish. Gritty Arthurian types, feudal heraldry and questing beasts, unicorns, goats, wyverns and griffons, the maimed king / St. George, sheilds emblazoned with keys and towers, symbols of defense and protection.
|Aelfar Female Warrior - Kyrie Brighthel|
Aelfar, a mysterious magical elf kindred, elf heroes hunt strange fabled beasts, jackalopes, cerberus, sleipneir-deer, boars and peacocks as befits their decadant aristocratic lineage.
Goblins, doing typically goblinish things, lazing around eating mushrooms, kicking wolves up the arse, riding wolves and feeding skulls to their blind spider god.
Infernals, supernatural beings - wights that haunt the barrows of ancient kings, festered corpses, raised by the necromantic powers of evil witches, gibbering tentacled things summoned from the cold void to taint mens minds with madness.
Gynnade Krigare - Elite servants of Hel
Helsvakt - evil warriors bound to the service of the goddess Hel. Their border features the 3 children of Loki, Hel goddess of death and the underworld, entwined with chains and skulls. The Demon-wolf Fenris who will swallow the sun and the moon at Ragnarok, and is bound with the god Tyr's hand choking his throat. Jormungand, the serpet that binds the world, vomiting forth the blades and armormants of the Helsvakt. And Hel, half skeletal half maiden, who has Odins Spear Gungnir.
Sverreulf the Red-Handed
Halfblood, accursed offspring from the union of man and goblin, suckled at the teat of wild beasts animals, rising from the wilderness to seek bloody vengeance on all those that stand before them, or seek an uneasy alliance with the folk of their thrice-accursed parentage.
