#14: Alaine

Hmm, two in one month. What is my world coming to. I started her at the in-laws over Thanksgiving. Again, she spoke to more much more than any of the others I've -already- started. So I finished her.

Three new Orks. Hur! Hur! Hur!

More Lootas and Burnas from the excellent boxed set of the same name.

#13: Juron

I thought I'd finish a different mini first, but this one kept pulling me. I actually want to use him for D&D so I think that might have been a factor.

Variety is the Spice!

I've had this one in various stages of competion for many a moon. Probably since last year honestly. It's just another one I kept wondering, "why don't I just finish him." He's from Dark Sword Miniatures and they have some fantastic sculpts.

This is a Griffin Templar I believe. It's from Rakcham when they used to do metal. It's one of three. The other two are essentially done, but I can't find their shields. The shields by the way, are terrible in that the contact point is minimal and prone to falling off. I'll probably blue tack it next time it comes off.

Looks like one of the Games Workshop ogres right? Color selection might have a little to do with that in terms of skin tone, but this fellow is from Heresy miniatures. The arms were a huge pia as even after throwing in the green stuff, there were still semi-visible wedges.
This is a goblin chief from Crocodille games for the Pathfinder Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path. A ton of 'fiddy' bits on it and it's been in various stages of completion since it first game out. I just got tired of it and finished it off and gave it a quick seal. No point in prolonging the pain. It's a great fig but I'm realizing as I get older that my patience level for fiddy bits is wanning quick.
This skeleton warrior didn't want to be photo shot. I tried like six times before I gave up the ghost. So you get blurry skeleton warrior from Rafm. He's part of a three pack and I've got the other two in various stages of completion as well. Maybe they'll take.

This top row is a group of six 'bulls' from Games Workshop. They are part of an Ogre Kingdom army I've had in storeage for a long time and finally decided to paint. Expect to see many more of these puppies as all the 'block' painting of flesh, cloth and metal is done and the touch ups are happening now.

This is another chaos dwarf from Hasslefree Miniatures. I love the simplicity of it. It's a nice touch without being over complicated by thousands of pouches, bags, miselaneous weapons, etc...

#12: Sir Brannor

Finished one finally. I got this one started back in May, and he's finally done. Well, as done as I'm taking him to. I also have a comparison of him against another crusader I did. While it isn't great, I did do a very smooth blend on the cloak and armor. I think I need work on my highlighting skillz but this was so much smooth a blend than the first one.

Boo! Oh wait, it's a day too late for that. Well, it was a full moon last night, and with the autumn wind blowing the leaves it was a great and spooky night. It also means that the end of the year is fast approaching. And as we come into the last two months of the year, our painters are apparently returning to their craft. Well, some of them anyways. ;)
