Another Workbench!

Okay, I know its been a while. It has been quite a month! And with a handful of miniatures banished to the stripping jar, here's whats up for this week:

First up, "Beastmaster" from Dark Sword. A really cool sculpt, strangely in its realism, but I thought he's a cool barbarian type, so I'm giving it a try. I'm kind of stuck on the metals, leathers, and furs.

Big experiment in this week's workbench!

The week of May 6, 2007 will be lots of fun painting-wise. Yeah, I'm a big over-extended, but my stripping jar is standing by for the anticipated disasters.

The last workbench of April

This week's workbench is a bit mild, except for a couple of challenge paint jobs (not seen here...)

Here we see whats up for next week. First, the Mercenary Wizard is still steadily painting himself, looking pretty good! Next up, I found a great old Citidel barbarian to play my character Ched in a D&D campaign. While I was back in the barbarian mindset, Ghonad the Heresy halfling barbarian screamed out for paint. Also, that old Citidel Norse Shaman is still on the bench. For now.

Parkinson's King and Queen Ploogak by Darksword Miniatures

Enchanting and very original, the King Ploogak and Phlunkey and Queen Ploogak and Phlunkey sets are beautifully crafted and very original.

Available from Darksword Miniatures, here's the sets:

Week of April 22, 2007

Yes, the Paladin pics are coming!!! Just waiting for the base to dry... In other news, there's two more challenges in progress here.

I'm still working on the Hireling Wizard. Or, he's continuing to paint himself...

I haven't finished that bearskin berserker or the norse shaman, just got a few touches here and there on them.

This week's fun challenges are the Heresy Dwarf Inventor and Hasslefree Amoy. I've had this dwarf assembled and primed for quite a while, so I'm looking forward to painting him finally.

Pirates of the Dragonspine Sea 2, by Reaper Miniatures

What a fun surprise I found at my local game store, the special edition remake of the Pirates of the Dragonspine Sea box set.

This set is a bit different; the crew is now made up of fantasy creatures, including Reaper's mascot, Sophie the Succubus.

Crew:
Captain Sophie, Succubus
Finaela, Half-elf
Aroudj Firebeard, Dwarf
Bergo Ironbelly, Halfling
Anatole, Harpooner
Rozmina the Ruby, Half-orc

David's Workbench

Here is my ingenious workbench. These pictures are a little old, but the bench is pretty much the same.

Weekly Workbench, Tax Day!

Phwew! I finished and posted my Fallen Santa and Netherlord challenges!
This week should be pretty easy...

Week ending April 8, 2007

I have a couple of hefty challenges going on this week, but I just didn't get to finish the Fallen Santa. Hopefully I'll have him done in a couple of days. In the meantime, I got a few monsters off of my workbench. Here's what's left (besides the Netherlord and Fallen Santa):
