This weekend we finally played Marktag Bloody Marktag and as the amateur I am, I of course forgot to bring my camera. I took some photos with my phone but they ended very random and of poor quality. Alas, what turned out to be a quite fun endeavor was left undocumented. Oh well. I’ll try to do something with the pics I did take and probably make some sort of proper presentation of the scenario at a later stage. Right now I need to digest the whole thing for a while.
But let me tell you this, the monks of St Gotthard never saw what hit them. The undead force attacking the monastery came crawling through the dusk and took the poor monks and their guests by complete surprise. They never managed to organize their defenses and the skeletons and ghouls attacking thus ploughed through their opponents, setting fire to buildings and spreading fear. It was quite cool actually, although Rasmus playing the monks gradually lost any hope of repelling the attack.
After last weekend I haven’t touched a brush but my appetite for new projects is already slowly returning. However, here you see the five last monks I finished before leaving. If you have been following these posts you’ll probably know the drill. The colours are the same and the manufacturers are also more or less so. From left to right you see a monk from Black Tree Design, an old Metal Magic monk, One of Foundry’s “jolly monks”, and the next one is another fella from Black Tree. Finally we have a cleric from Citadel. Frankly I’m not sure if this is a man or woman. I always assumed it was a woman and in our scenario we used her as the nun Ulrike Herberiner. Nevertheless while painting the mini I started to wonder if this indeed is a woman. It could easily be a slightly feminine chap. Well, she/he is a nice mini although the use of crosses in fantasy settings always seems slightly odd.
Any thoughts on the monks (and nun/cleric?)?
Up next on my workbench is this lot of fierce, delightful goblins. A nice mix of old, very old and very recent minis. This is going to be a nice change of pace after having painted monks and adventurers these last two months.
Cheers and good times
