And Now For Something Completely Different.............................

I've not just been painting Elves, I've painted a few Empire minis too.

I'm playing Al again in a couple of weeks, hopefully a small game or two with my Elves and maybe my Skaven plus a larger one with my Skaven. Al plays Empire but he's only just come back to the hobby. He's a bit of a perfectionist which makes him a really good painter but this means he doesn't churn units out quickly so I'm helping him out a bit.

My stuff's a lot rougher paint jobs but when I'm in the painting zone I can crank them out quite quickly.

So I decided to get a unit of Battle Masters crossbowmen painted up. They're not the best minis made by GW but they're not the worst either. The big benefit of them is what a lot of people will see as a failing, the monopose! Speed painting is really helped out by repetition so I managed to knock these out in one day.

I also did a Grey Wizard, Al's personal favourite (can anyone say "Bridge of Shadows"?).  Looking at the photo's I think I need to do his face again as it looks far too pale.

I've also just noticed the flash on the back of his boot! Damn it, that'll be coming off and his boot will get a touch up!

Time to get back to the Elves.....................................


  1. Looking good, I quite fancy getting a unit of those Crossbowmen now, might have to clip the plumes off though :)

    1. Oh I don't know, I think the daft plumes are rather snazzy!
