OWAC3 - January Wood Elves

I've completed my first month's entry for the Old World Army Challenge. More photos & words at my entry on the OWAC site. Expect a lot of other participants monthly updates in the coming week or so as well!

I got a new bulb for my adjustable lamp. I can now match the temperature of the bright overhead lights -- hoping to improve photos.

Continuing to wrap up half finished figures from last year when I should be focusing on painting the wood elves I'm doing for the Old World Army Challenge this year! (I am making progress on the elves...)

Troll shaman by Artizan Designs, from North Star. As you can see in the photo that I previously posted, he's a little shorter than the Marauder & Satyr trolls, but given that he's squatting down I think I'm OK with that. I like the idea that trolls (much like humans) are heterogeneous in size and shape, and this seems within a reasonable range.

What will I finish next? Well... hopefully some wood elves! But at the rate I'm going, probably some more of the other neglected, half-painted figures still on my desk!

A Tale of Two Hobbits

Second hobbit of the new year. A contrasting counterpart to the first. One a member of civilized and courtly society, the other a spirit of wild nature. This one from Reaper Miniatures.
