Late for Halloween

Lots of monsters getting wrapped up as the year deadline starts to close in:

FF Undead

Glowing blue eyes on the center ghoul definitely inspired by reading too much Fire and Ice over the last couple of months - not sure I'm going to bother with book 5 though.


Yes I decided to go with a scheme other than blood red


So many of these figures are hard to do justice to - this guy is no exception.

Goblin Family

Difficult to know what to do with the goblin girl in the center - such a simple figure I decided to keep her very plain

More very soon

A Game of FS Fives

The FS5 thrones seem to be one of the most enduring of the older citadel models. They often show up in lots of old Ral Partha or Grenadier models on ebay. Presumably they were added to those collections because those ranges lacked an equivalent. Of course they are mostly missing the wizard and almost always missing the lectern.

Just to prove my point - having just painted the two on either side I found the one in the middle two weeks ago in an auction lot at a small convention.

My version of FS5-1:

And FS5-2

OK I've taken dozens of pictures today - so I'll have a couple more updates very soon.

7 weeks to go - at 11 miniatures to finish - some of them are nearly done
