Owyn's first model

Owyn has been playing D&D with his brother.  His first character was a thief.  He got frustrated by the fact that he was squishy and didn't fight very well.  For his second character he decided that he wanted a fighter.

Lips pursed in concentration.

I backed the first Bones kickstarter.  This means I have a ton of D&D style characters.  I pulled a couple of dozen out and let each boy pick one out.  Owyn picked a big, strong fighter in plate armor.  Pretty much the opposite of his last character.

His holding technique leaves a little bit to be desired.
He got the armor and cape done in the first go around.  His brush control was better than I expected.  The big reveal will come when he's done, but I'm very excited that he wants to paint.

  1. Great to see the young ones giving the hobby a try. I wish you good luck in developing both a painting and gaming partner.

    1. Thank you Jonathan. There's hope. Both boys have decided that they want models as a reward for being good at school, rather than toys.

    1. Owyn hasn't decided he wants to play minis yet, but he loves X-Wing and D&D. Rhys is all about playing minis. I'm just happy they want to spend time with me.

    1. I very carefully didn't push on this. He was adamant that he wanted to paint his mini himself.
