Well I might have missed Orctober but I sure wasn't going to miss Gnomevember! So without further ado here is my contribution to Gnomevember:

This little guy was labelled "thief" in the C11 slotta based range. It is a pretty cool range and I must say I had fun painting him. I especially liked the little hammer so I might have a go at the figure named "Hillbreath" next as he too has a little hammer.

Latest work

Bit of a mixed bunch this lot - I've always got a number of little projects on the go so I'm regularly finishing off figures from a number of games/ranges. Anyway here they are:

Various chaos dwarfs and a Marauder/Thug

Morbius the Liche, Mud Elemental and Night Horror Ghost

Golden Heroes Supervillian and Bob Olley ogre
The Golden Heroes figure represents the start of another slow burn project. I must say some of the figures in that range are pretty cool. The scale of them is such that they could easily be used in skirmish games of Rogue Trader or Judge Dredd. I'm aiming to get a number of these sone over summer when the longer days (well in the antipodes at least!) helps my painting.

Slow burn projects - part 3

Like a fair few painters out there in blogger land I have a number of things on the go. Third instalment in this series are figures I have painted for the boardgame Talisman and the various expansions that go with it. The game itself is good fun if a tad random whilst the Gary Chalk artwork for it is excellent. And the figures? Well they are some of the nicest figures citadel ever produced and they are consistent with the artwork. They are also pretty difficult and costly to collect. Originally I had no desire to collect them until I came across a heap of them going cheap on eBid because some daft sod had chopped the slotta tags off them. As a result I got most of the figures for the original game, the expansion and the dungeon. Collecting the rest though was a fairly expensive exercise but in the end I did it. Now I'm slowly painting these up so I can play the game with painted figures when my kids are old enough (the oldest is 6 so I have a bit of time). Anyway here are my painted efforts to date:

Scientist, Space Marine and Telepath 

Witch Doctor, Sorceress, Necromancer and Wizard

Scout, Pilgrim and Monk

Centaur and Ghoul
