I've been trying to catch up again with my urban board. My progress is desperately slow, as usual in recent times, but the important thing is that I'm not idle.
I'm thinking of adding some merchants and stuff of the like. I mean, that's the real thing in real towns, people trading and exchanging items, and it will be a (hopefully) nice touch of actual lifestyle to my board. However, it has to be somehow coherent with what I already have, so that means it has to be all fuzzy, weird, anachronistic, exotic, chubby, dirty... Ahem. So I'll just have to do whatever comes to mind first :D
I'll be starting with a rug merchant. I got this Illusionist by Otherworld, who looks exotic enough for my purposes:
|Whenever I start a Frostgrave band I can also use him!|
|Magic user, rug merchant... Hmmm, he may be selling flying rugs!|
Why am I stuck with the rug idea? Well, it's all part of something I found back in the day, a sheet with rugs to print (sorry! I cannot remember the source now. Please, if it's you, just let me now to give you proper credit!!):
|In all their Persian glory|
I originally got them thinking of my Afghanistan project, but never got to actually print them. I remembered I got these and then found the Otherworld mini, so it all begun to take shape in my mind...
|Printed at home on an A4 sheet|
I already got the ubiquitous stalls by Micro Arts (lovely pieces), so this all will come to something more... defined anytime in the future. Soon-ish!
