A little while ago I posted about the huge scale discrepancy between a few “Slaine” inspired barbarian 28mm miniatures I picked up. You can read about it here if you like.
I got around to painting a couple of them. I’ve stayed pretty true to Slaine’s colouring and tartan/plaid garb.
Side by side – Wargames Foundry’s rather large ‘official’ Slaine miniature (AD5 Slaine the King). He’s heavy. On the right the rather more diminutive but perfectly sculpted and cast Hasslefree Miniatures ‘Volk the Bastard’ (HFH084).
I like them both very much and I’m please with the end results. But I do have a favourite (not saying here!) – which is your favourite? The old school giant or the exquisite poser?
Destined for the likes of Frostgrave (when I’m forced to play it in 28mm) or as a warband leader in SAGA when I’m up against an opponent that doesn’t get too upset when I sneak in a fantasy model or two 😉
