Fatally deviated Nicola...


Ok, Long shot for this one, you folks might remember the side scrolling game of Advanced Heroquest I played in Ireland some time ago... you don't ? Aw come on ! Here you go.
The game was played with my friend Paul and GMed by master Crooks.
We had plenty of models to paint for this game as well as for the Frostgrave campaign we would have later that week.

But as things happen, Nicola didn't make it in the final cast. A couple of Nipponese got lucky instead and while I was being my annoying self from the couch in Paul's launge sipping my glass of wine, my esteemed colleague was sweating blood to get his models done.
He left up Nicola aside (a good move really) and managed to get 3 others models nailed in the evening instead.


Due to my link with the very reason Nicola was a thing in the first place, I ended up with a half finished space female cashier...
Now the funny thing is that despite knowing and enjoying Paul's work for a long time know, I still have to admit I just don't pain the same way. It's just not the same process. with the bases done for all parts I was struggling with how to continue. Even just the choice of colours to use was a problem.
Last night, it just became unbearable to have this one still unfinished so I decided to man up and do what I had promised to do : Get those half finished model out of my table.

In the end the model is OK although I know it isn't close to what Paul would have achieved... I lust adit I also too shorcuts after struggling with the white jacket.

Here's the models as they were intended for the game though :

Jimmy Bennett, Nicola and the space hobo monk
While I was at it, I also took a shot at Nicola with her stunt double for the game. I have no idea how I'm going to use a space female cashier in the future but I'm no too worried though...


There's more to come this week if time and weather allow it !

  1. I'm not fond of the model itself but this white ios just brilliant. Nice take on the hair :) Yet, I'm not sure whether this lady's gun should be considered dangerous or not.

    1. Unless you can find a way to cover someone in price stickers to death, the gun won't be very dangerous I'm afraid. ;)

    1. I suppose you're one of the most qualified people on earth to enjoy that team work. Bear in mind that most contestants in that game have watched that movie about 3 times... ;)
