Sea Elf Standard. Poor color rendering on the photo -- still need to work on better lighting for photos. Sticking with the aquatic fauna theme for the moment.
My plan for (Half-) Orctober 2019: 24 old Grenadier half-orcs, plus a Citadel barbarian who will pass for one of the regiment, and a Reaper priestess that I didn't finish last year.
Anyone else really enjoy the new Dark Crystal series? I had a few initial reservations, but enjoyed the heck out of it.

It's been a while since I've done some tiny freehand. Painting this shield was my little moment of stress relief on an otherwise shitty day. I need more painting time in my life, to decompress. Lateaddition to the sea elves I did for the Old World Army Challenge (most of whom still need their shields painted as well...)

There's a mini challenge on the OWAC group for a squad of 10 in 2 months -- so 5 figures per month. I was thinking about using this as an excuse to really start on the Eclectic Meat-Hating Robot Pirates.
Here were the fist 10 I came up with...
But then I found...
And really, any crew of misanthropic robot pirates really *should* have a squad of robot flying monkeys. They're Reaper Bones figures, and surprisingly seem decently detailed -- and very cheap!

Been painting an armed mob for the witch hunter. I think this is all the rabble I have for now, unless I can unearth some more. I do have some others that were previously painted, to bulk up the numbers a little bit more.

Still trying to work out the lighting...
More recruits for the witch hunter. Trying to work in some non-human followers. Looking for some dwarf militia/levy types but they're harder to come by.
And a statue (to be used as an objective)

It's been a good holiday weekend. Weather didn't completely cooperate, but for the most part things went well. I got some work done around the house, barbecued some chicken, and enjoyed some down time with my family.
I also got a bit of personal/hobby time in. First off, I painted the Witch Hunter, and started putting a bit of paint on his next few followers.
I hung a new light to brighten the little corner of the cellar that I paint in. It's almost too much light! When I turn my old task light on at the desk, it doesn't make much of a difference, and in fact casts a bit of a shadow. Things may get rearranged. This also may happen because...
I also made a new 3x3 game board. Hopefully I will get to use it for some small skirmish gaming, like Rangers of Shadow Deep. But I also wanted someplace better to take photos of figures. It took a few days (mostly waiting for glue/paint to dry) but the actual work that went into it was brief and easy. The new board matches the larger table/boards I've currently got in storage.
I threw together a makeshift backdrop and tested out a few angles for photos to see if the lighting will work.
