Last month I finally got my hands on one of Tabletop World's resin houses. It was the lovely Merchant's Shop.
I painted it for a step-by-step tutorial published in last month's Figure Painter Magazine. You can purchase Issue19 if you follow this LINK. It was fun, even though I had to paint fast to meet the deadline. It will be a welcome addition to my terrain collection. The only problem is that it makes my own scratchbuilt houses look quite poorly made in comparison. I guess I'll have to up my game when it comes to terrain making. Or fill my table with Tabletop World stuff. Spaking of which, the newly released Mansion is a real beauty. But that price tag...

I recently bought another blister of Reaper Dire Wolves, so the Plague Doctor got two more cheap minions. The newcomers are at the front, and the two old ones are at the back.

Another thing I did in November was a redesign of the Bell-ringers. I wanted them to look more visually coherent, and more reminiscent of the source material. Before setting off I made some sketches:
|The faces got an overhaul.|
|The Devil gets a new head. Also, possible new types of units are here. The stag and hounds belong to the Hunter Horse-man, though- whose crew is planned for a distant future.|
|The Plaguebearer arms are replaced by the longer Horror arms. They wield new clubs as well.|
|The big, Blightking-based fellow I haven't started yet; the Devil again, and the musician got a change of concept.|
The next post will feature before and after pictures of the six minis that went through the makeover, as well as inspiration, design and execution notes.
