Reaper Miniature's Barnabas, Human Warrior - 77023
Howdy y'all! We've moved 1,500 miles to Austin, Texas. It's been awhile since I've dug out the paints and did some painting. Well, in this case, not actually at home. There are a number of fantastic hobby shops in the area and one of those was having a Paint and Pint evening. Pretty cool, the hobby shop Emerald Tavern Games & Cafe has beer, wine, and sandwiches along with lots of games and tables. They sponsored a night where for $10 you received a pint of beer, a miniature, and the use of any pot of paint you want.
So with a pint of Fuller's and a miniature from Reaper, I did some painting and met some new friends. I kept the paint job simple with a black undercoat and a drybrush of metal, a touch of gold and some brown on the pouch bags. Then I had a bit of fun with some blue and red on the shield.
Once home, I put the miniature on a base and gave it the name of Hugues based upon Hugues de Payens (a founding member of the Knights Templar).
