My next completed models of April are from Fantasy Flight’s Journeys in Middle-Earth board game are this trio of Wights. These are very “flat/2D” sculpts, and in a pretty uninspiring pose to boot. I mean, they’d have been fine – good in fact – as a Skeleton Command model from GW in about 1991, but even as someone with deep roots in the whole “Oldhammer” thing, getting three of this sculpt in a modern board game isn’t especially inspiring.
I did put a little effort into making their clothing slightly distinct from one another while maintaining a dark and dull palette. I did hit them with a matte varnish, but I may have to bring them back in for a shot of the old AK Interactive paint-on Matte to tone the sheen of those cloaks down. I decided against adding glowy bits to them, as I wanted to keep more to the dusty, decayed look – the Oathbreakers I’ll get to painting later will provide enough glowiness for this game’s models. Not much more to add really – another three done and we’re now that much closer to trying out the game on the tabletop!
