GW - Festus the Leechlord

Picked this one up on a whim at GW Glasgow. Mainly because the chap in there said that there was a painting competition, the requirements were to pick one of two minis (or both), get them painted then drop them into the store in time for the competition. I actually won the competition, but no prizes... ahh well, not sure what I expected anyway. It is quite a good mini, being finecast it needed quite a lot of work to it before I could begin, mainly in terms of filling in holes and some bending back into shape. You normally get very good quality with resin, but not with finecast. It is packed full of detail, so much so that I decided to concentrate on one small area to completion at a time, otherwise I would still be painting it now. It even comes with a Heresy torso from one of their ghoul packs. A slight flipping of the bird at GW rules in general. I fear their compliments of "you could win a golden demon" were to sell me a ticket to the show....

I'll probably chuck this on ebay at some point. Unless any of you fancy it? Drop me a line if you do.

More to come in terms of Old School Classic stuff and some conversions. Once I get my act together and start photographing it.

My latest attemp to re-vive this blog 8)

Painted these up a short while ago for Midlam Miniatures, 28mm to top of head and a breeze to paint up
Usual undead fleshtone of Dheneb Stone and washes for a touch of life.

They can be found here, and a bargain at £10 for 7 minis at the moment.

Fantasy Zoat

This one took me back a way, I've no idea where the one I originally had about 20 years ago went to. Really enjoyed painting it up, wonder if I'll be saying that after the next 13 of them 8). Only place to ge tthem now is ebay and they go for a small fortune, saying that, you can spend on average £20 on on of these or one of those new citadel shitecast mini's. No brainer really

New White Knight Dwarves

These are great Marauder Proxies, ideal for bulking up that old OOP army with something that fits. They paint up quickly and easily with little in the way of extra detail that bogs the painting down. These are after all Rank and Filers. The bases need completing. I'll be getting a few more units and trying out different schemes. Very reasonable prioce, fast delivery and the range will be expanding, see the White Knight blog link on the left for more info.

Red Box Games Svjanna the Sinister

One I painted up a while back now. Fantastic mini, there is a lot of detail packed into this range and well worth splashing out for. I went for my normal deathly pallour as I think this works well as a Vampire/Dark Elf type.

Really easy to paint up too but I still need to add some foliage to the base.

I will be getting a few more from this range eventually.
