Back in Blacque
The Brothers Blacque, no relation
This is a pair of figs that have languished forever in an incomplete state...but no longer! Well, I am out of Dull Cote, so there's one stage left for these two, but other than that, they're officially done, and only years after they were used last.
The Brothers Blacque were a pair of questionable mercenary characters played in one of our two Iron Kingdoms campaigns oh so long ago. We had a full table of players, but these two (mine and Brian's) had a history prior to the campaign.
The paint jobs were fairly straight forward, the Trollkin got a weapon swap (his old axe for a big club) and both figs got new equipment added to their backs, a quiver of arrows for the big guy, and a sword for the human. These were back in the days when I dipped everything too, that shouldn't show too much after their dull coat sealer.
This human was a gunslinger and sellsword of a nasty disposition. His loyalties went as far as his current contract stated, and he stuck around only as long as he was getting paid. He carries a military pistol in a fast-draw holster, and on his back is a keen edged sword of considerable arcane ability. He is seldom seen without his cloak.
This hefty Trollkin was destined for greatness, as his albino skin dictated, but his heart was corrupt. He turned away from his clan and inexplicably left his heritage behind. He signed on with the Brothers Blacque mercenary band and made a good living with them. He and the human would eventually leave together and strike out on their own.
Like I said, they still need a shot of Dull Cote, but I'll have to pick some up since I'm fresh out. Being RPG figs from Privateer Press' Iron Kingdoms line, I painted their bases a cream color, but that didn't photograph so well. At least they're done now...
