Painting 'Battles of Westeros' boardgame: Hear Lannisters roar (with bonus stuff!)

Hi everyone!

First of all I must interrupt the current progamming for an important reason. Mighty Colin from Leadpile organized a contest celebrating his 100 first followers... and I happened to win! =D
Please visit his blog and check the prize! If you still don't follow him, I strongly recommend you to do ;)
Of course the guy will have a post of his own over here, but for the moment I believe I must give the credit and whatever visits I can redirect to Leadpile :)

Now back to regular bussiness and the Battles of Westeros project, I must confess I'm kinda cheating :O. I'm currently on a business travel and I already have the full range of the game painted ;), but I had to dosify it so I wouldn't have a two weeks gap in the blog. So here I am, posting from my hotel in San Remo, Italy, to give some room to Colin and to bring upon you the other half of this project. With no other preambles... House Lannister of Casterly Rock:

Lannisport Guards
By he way, all of them show their little lions on the shields, of course
Casterly Rock Cavaliers. They also have lions painted on their shields
Westerlands Archers
Lannister Heavy Infantry. Tiny lions again
Just as I was telling you the other day, I didn't want to show you pieces of red plastic being painted red, so I've waited until I had all of them finished.

Basically these are the two armies that will clash for the control of Westeros. But I've not been accurate when I said at the beginning that this was the other half of the project. For sure these guys will need someone who leads them into battle, right?

Stay tuned, later this week you'll see the special characters for both armies! :)

  1. Very nice work their Suber. I wouldn't be so worried about posting pictures of red figures being painted red.

  4. That you managed to paint the lion heraldry on such a small small shield is absolutely incredible. "Kowtowing" to wonderful work! ^_^
