Russ effing Nicholson!

So I mentioned a while back that my idea for an illustration for the LotFP:WFRPG was selected to be used, and I was stoked about the prospect of a free boxed set.  Now I’m even more stoked because I found out that the artist who did the illustration was Russ Nicholson!  I first saw his work in the Fiend Folio.  Since then I’ve come to appreciate his work even more, although I always loved the FF illustrations.

Mr. Nicholson now has a blog so you can see some of his stuff there.  I can’t wait to see what did with my suggestion.  I’m honored that idea was picked at all, and even more honored that someone as talented as Russ Nicholson created an illustration based on it.  One more thing to look forward to in the “Grindhouse edition” of the game.

And now for something completely different: I realized that it has been a long time since I posted any minis pics, and that is largely because I have not been painting much lately.  But I did finally finish the seven (!) Grenadier lizardmen generously donated to the Bruce Galloway Memorial home.  They will reinforce my lizard folk nicely.

I painted all my old Grenadier lizardmen blue and think of them as Troglodytes.  The few metal implements they cary are bronze, as it would be both a more “primitive” material than steel or iron and less prone to rust.  Realistically the bronze weapons should be corroded rather than bright and shiny but maybe they oil their weapons.  With human fat.
