We have the Town guard and the warriors passing through, the merchants and traders, but I thought we had better have some boatmen and fishermen too.
These were easy to create by using the shabby looking bodies from the Frost grave soldiers box set and some suitable heads. The nasty looking boat hooks were created by mixing plastic spears and Warlord Games orc weapons.
I also thought to give them a character all of their own by painting them very dark in blacks and greys.
Ropes are another touch that gave them a boating feel and these were taken again from the Frost Grave soldier sprue. So that sprue really came in handy for these river folk with all its little detail pieces.
Here we see a lower member of lake town society, the humble boatman. However, can he survive the hordes of hell with just a boat hook and a length of rope... only time will tell.
