The top one is flash. The botton, no flash. The bottom was too dark to see when at the large size. The figure on the left is a Games Workshop metal orc. One day I may do an actual banner for the bastich and maybe dot the eyes with some orange for some contrast to the red. For now (and probably ever), he's done though. The base is cork with pumice paste spread ontop of it.
The one of the right is a drow from chainmail. This figure is another 08... perhaps even 07 that didn't really grab me Still, with the blog here as some motivation, I figured, why not. Just finish the damn thing already.
