These four guys are from FASA's Crucible miniatures game. I found them dirt cheap at American Eagles, a weird hobby store in Seattle that stopped stocking new game stuff over 10 years ago. The store is massive, so they've slowly been going through a big game inventory. If you ever wanted a trip back to 1997 in gaming, check them out.
These minis were very easy to paint. Base coat, wash, a few highlights, and that's it.
This gargoyle from Otherworld Miniatures was also easy to paint, with a gray base coat, wash, and highlights, plus a few detail bits here and there. I have a bunch of hobgoblins from Otherworld that I want to paint, and that might be my next big project.
