54mm Waiteri tribe: Naked warrior

Here's my first warrior. Not much to say. I'm happy with the end result, and based on the results of this figure and the shaman, I think the rest of the tribe is going to turn out just fine. I'm still not sure if I'm going to give the whole tribe some warpaint; it works with this guy because he has enough skin to make the paint look effective, but other figures, such as the scouts for example, I don't think need the warpaint.

The base is unfinished as well; I was in a hurry to get this posted. Later, I'll touch up the base with some lighter patches of static grass, and topped off with a few grass tufts (I got a couple packages of the new ones from Army Painter; They work just fine.)

I won't do this for all the figures, but here's a quick stage-by-stage look at how this figure shaped up:

In the meantime, I've been searching for a good dog or two to add to the tribe. I have a few from Reaper, but they are a touch small. They'll work fine as small dogs, but I still want some big, hunting dogs. I'm also still thinking about how to go about sculpting a mammoth; Still looking around for the right armature wire.


  1. This base would make a great Xandr figure. Do you sell these?

  2. I don't sell these, but you can find the "dollies" at Bronze Age Miniatures. Look under "Generics." They come in either 32mm or 54mm:
