Sunday Afternoon Painting: Prince Thorgrim & Protectorate Holy Zealot

Sunday afternoon often brings one of two things – a session of D&D, or an afternoon of painting and hanging out with my best friend Jake. It’s a great way to decompress, catch up and enjoy painting some lesser known miniatures that are sitting in my backlog. Despite not painting unless he is with me, Jake is really skilled already, understanding colour composition and the like.

This week, Jake tackled a miniature of Prince Thorgrim from the Paizo GameMastery Encounter package, The Liberation of Prince Thorgrim, and I painted a Holy Zealot from the Warmachine army the Protectorate of Menoth. These are both going to be used in the very first encounter of my new homebrew campaign, No More Heroes, which is about to commence (as soon as my players finalise their characters!). In this sense, Thorgrim represents a political prisoner by the name of Sergeant Darkaxe, and the Holy Zealot represents one of the Order of the Archai jailers.

While taking some photos of these, I thought it’d be a good time to see how my new dungeon tiles created with inexpensive textured vinyl floor tiles from Bunnings looked. I’m happy to say that they look fantastic with a dark black rub and some grey drybrush highlights, and you can make a set of 20+ of various sizes for $1.20AUD. The best part is, they come in a variety of faux finishes and colours, including granite, marble and wood.

Check out some images of the miniatures below, and as always, C&C is welcome!
