Stone Cold Lead paints for the Dark Czar

It is my pleasure to present a wee update from Simon over at Stone Cold Lead figure painting (he is a very talented brush master) as he tackles some modifications and then painting our Flintloque beginners set.  5024 Escape the Dark Czar.  He maintains a presence of lovely examples of his painting on a Facebook PAGE if you wish to see more.

Thought I'd show some of the little tweaks I made to the Alternative Armies. Flintloque zombies I painted recently. Decided to add a little extra detail and make their coats a bit more dynamic.  I'm not much of a putty pusher but after the first model I soon got the hang of doing what limited 'sculpting' I wanted to do.  Guess I should have taken pics of the backs of the painted models too.  Oh well, I'll do that when the other three models are painted. Prepping more models from the Flintloque Escape from the Dark Czar starter set. Two of the Ferach survivors here.  General de Brigade Hugo Saindoux a rather tubby elf who values his cooking pot and stew, and Captain Boell Umfrage the sole survivor of an ogre regiment.  Bit of green stuff work on them to give their coats a little more shape and dynamism.  Painted another little something for my Flintloque 'project'. This time it's Count Valdimir Kustosov, a vampire. A nice diversion from the green uniformed zombies. - Taken from the Stone Cold Lead page.

If you would like to learn more about the game and its miniatures then go along to our Begin in Flintloque page for the beginners set, more miniatures including Count Kustosov as well as terrain and some free scenarios to download.  Escape the Dark Czar is the best place to enter the worlds greatest black powder fantasy game.

For the entirety of the month of September a freebie from Alternative Armies with a Dark Czar set Zombie (worth 2.50GBP) included free in every package.  Read this in full on our BLOG. You need do nothing but order and we will include it.
