The High Elf on a griffon is excellent!  Reminds me I still have the HE side of the 8th edition set, and look forward to painting them someday.  I like the small scenic ponds and monoliths, too!

That griffin is a really nice model. I was thinking I should get one and try to convert it to an Empire hero.

Thinking of magnetizing mine inorder to use the griffon for more than one rider, particularly since I'm not a fan of the most recent griffon provided by GW for Karl Franz.  Although I do have the older metal griffon with elector count.

If you mean the one reared up on its hind legs, I love that model too. Mine is assembled (magnetized rider as well!) and primed, but I haven't started painting it yet.



One more pic to add. I finally finished the bases on a couple of quickly painted old townsfolk.

Do... those townfolk give "mob" a bad name?

Yes, that's the one.  My griffon is currently not even primed, but the original rider has been primed and painting to the point of blocking out with color only.  I've used him as a commander on horse, and like the idea of magnetizing that model as well.  Maybe he'll make it into my "100 Days of Painting" effort that is currently ongoing.  Maybe, because there are so many things that this is causing me to want to paint.

Yet one more pic, now that the recipient has seen it. Another project I've been working on for months, this one is part of a trade deal for some old figures. One or two little details I'm still going to add, but just about done.

Indeed. Quite picturesque. The only thing missing is a town or village background.

Working on that.  :-D Unfortunately, those figures will be heading back to their home soon. But I have my own collection of townsfolk started. For now, though, a small farm below....




My sleep has been screwed up this week, so I was up late the past few nights. Figured it would be a good time to wrap up enough of the Nightmare Legion to field a basic unit . Still two more 40mm bases to paint, which will have the four command figures and more troops.




Also, just because I wanted to see how my forces were shaping up, I set up a table. I think this helped boost my spirit a bit regarding gaming. I'm still not sure how/what/when I will do in terms of actual gaming. But at least I can feel like I'm doing something that looks pretty decent on a table.

I'm waiting on the owner of the previously posted elf griffin to stop by to pick it up, so I left it threatening a flank in the meantime.  ;)

Your painting rocks,

do you use Vallejo?

Ask yourself , what is real? 5 sense filtered reality is a very limited perspective.

Some Vallejo -- mostly the bright red, yellow, and blue, and the metals. Some Reaper Master Series. Some craft paints (trying more as they seem to be getting much better lately.) GW washes.

Yes they are.

I can't believe how difficult they are to find locally! Almost all mats seem to be printed with some design on them. I was never able to find a plain one, and finally bought one that had the least amount of printing I could find. I cut off a few small "raw" parts for the fields, then threw away the rest. Such a waste. :icon_redface: I wouldn't mind having more, and may end up seeing if I can get a plain one shipped cheaply at some point. But it's rather low on my list of priorities.

While sorting out the Marienburg figures for use in my planned basing scheme, I noticed a couple of cases where I could paint up just a few figures to round out a unit so it would be ready for the battlefield. In most cases, that means 16 infantry, 8 cavalry, or 4 big critters for the basic unit building blocks.

So I painted up one more pistolier, and started on four more dwarf pikemen as a quick break from the undead.

That horse looks fantastic. I have a huge problem with horses. They all end up just brown, or black.

Thanks! I defy those who say that you can't paint bright colors with a black undercoat!  :-D

Thanks. The best thing I did for learning how to paint horses was to buy a cheap photo book of horses from a used book shop. I ignored the "how to paint a horse" tutorials and photos of other people's horses and just tried to paint miniatures according to the photos. Through trial and error I think I've done OK. (That was before the internets were as big as they are now -- you can do the same for free online now.)

Hmmm... I've always wanted to try one of those floating terrain projects. Maybe I should give it a try.... :ph34r:

With these four dwarfs finished, I can now field a full unit. (Maybe a unit photo next update?) Disappointed that the camera really flattened the colors. I'm quite proud of the bright highlights on these guys. ;)





And just to prove that I've finally started painting that Westfalia sample halfling....





While waiting for paint to dry on the above figures, I worked on the Citadel jabberwock. Again, the camera sort of washed out the color. Hard to tell, but I added some nice sickly purples & yellows on this, rather than sticking with the usual  neutral greys of most of the undeadish.

I like it. Now I'll want to pick up a couple from that range. One as a Bret, and one for the Witch Hunters.

Here's the rest of the unit of old dwarf spear/pike:





And the now completed Westfalia halfling:





I've been experimenting with more terrain. This was done with a bit of pulled apart steel wool, glued to a base, sprayed with brown primer, and then glued with some clump foliage. 





As posted elsewhere, I picked up this "Lord of the Feast" from Hordes.



And this is what it looks like out of the package:



I've got conflicting feelings for it. On the one hand, I love the figure and it's well sculpted. I also like the size (for my project) which is significantly taller than a normal human. I will have to dig up the figure, but I think it should look good with the old Citadel "Death Elemental." But on the other hand, it's seven pieces with mostly bad glue-joints, and little opportunity for easy pinning. It looks like it will fall apart if used for actual gaming. My experience with sculpting, mold making, and casting is admittedly limited, but I think this really could have been designed with better joints and/or in fewer pieces. I go this because I was excited to work on it next. But right now I can't work up the enthusiasm to try putting it together properly.

I agree with you completely. Fantastic looking model, and it looks like it fits with your project. However it also looks like it could be a nightmare to glue. Good luck with that. As much as I loved the old metal GW models, putting them together is not a fond memory.
