The Roaring Northerners are Dave Stewart, John Hill and Iain Robertson; a loose affiliation of tabletop wargamers and figure painters who inhabit the frozen and somewhat soggy wastelands of west central Scotland. Shadowy and secretive, they stoically quest to reduce the scale of the lead mountain that threatens to engulf them all, and perhaps even find the time for the occasional game...
....This is their story

And now for something completely different.....

I picked this figure up at Carronade earlier this month and couldn't resist having a go.

The strange little fellow is from Northumbrian Tin Soldier, out of their Nightfolk range and is called 'The Sentinel'

NTS, describes the range as being 'Dark fantasy figures inspired by the tales and traditions of faerie and folklore'. Sounds fair enough to me!

The range is very new and can be found at

I understand that the range is so new that there are no specific rules yet, but some are due out soon. The range was around 12 figures at the time I purchased this chap, but more have already been added.

Not sure what I will do with this fellow, but I suspect a small collection of these beautifully sculpted figures may make its way across my painting table over the coming months.

The figure is supplied with a slotted base and was very well cast with little cleaning up required. A quick undercoat and we were off and running.

A real departure from my usual and great fun.

All the very best to David and Jayne in this new venture.

As ever, comments and criticisms gratefully received.




  1. Unusual and great, love it!

  2. Thanks Phil, much appreciated.

  3. These little chaps cry out to be painted and put on display; excellent work in bringing an excellent sculpt to life!

  4. Brilliant, Dave! That's a tremendous job on him! Had a wee look at their site, might have to procure "The Warrior" for a larf...

  5. Thanks Evan. Yes Iain, I genuinely don't know what I will do with them, but I will acquire a few more. A couple of the new 'Knights' look good.
