Chronicles of the Wayfarer

I had the opportunity to take part in a contest painting some 15mm resin miniatures from a new company, producing a range named 'Chronicles of the Wayfarer'. The figures looked incredibly detailed for their size and would be challenging to paint, so I contacted the company.

They sent four figures- a man with spear and shield, an armored warrior that could fit a hammer or sword, a crossbowman, and a fierce warrior woman with a geartooth back banner. I was a little amazed to see multi-part 15mm- but they were cast really well and went together quickly and easily. There was very little cleanup and prep work. One area of concern for me was the small contact point for gluing the woman to the base provided, but the worry was unfounded as the figures are very light and a small spot of super glue does the job just fine.

Once I got to painting I discovered that these little guys (and gal) have some amazing crisp detail. The crossbow has a toothed gear on the side! The good news is that the detail is raised enough to catch paint relatively easily.

 I think 15mm look a little odd photographed up close, but I'm going to do it anyway!
