Tavern Staff of the Blue Wolf Inn


Every town needs a tavern. And Gierburg is no exception! So today I would like to show you the lovely couple that own's the fine Blue Wolf Inn, that I painted. Both miniatures are from Black Cat Bases.

First, Stilhoufen, the owner. Judging by his looks, he may very well have spent some time at sea.


Up next, his lovely wife Bertha, a female cook:


I wanted to add a little extra to the miniature, to justify it's annoyed expression. I thought that maybe someone has spilled some of Bertha's stew/soup, and now she's coming after him/her with that pan of her's.

I wanted to give the spilled soup a little texture so I used some VMC Arena Oscura + VMC Smoke, which I let dry for a little while to make it thicker, and addded some very fine sand to it. I stippled the mixture on the base and on the pan and let dry. Then I applied a generous wash of GW Chestnut ink.

The staff in front of the Blue Wolf Inn:


That's it for today!
I hope you enjoyed this little update. Stay tuned for more.
