Here we are again....
I've been painting up odds and sods, some small commissions and a few
things I've had lying around on my work desk. First up there's a set of
ancient princesses (not a bunch of old broads but the kind of scantily
clad sorts from back in 'the day').
All Werner Klocke sculpts and are
apparently limited edition Christmas models from 2005, 2006 and 2007
respectively. Nice clean sculpts and quite fun to paint, although I
suspect they might not be 100% historically accurate (bikinis and
platform sandals may have come a little later ). If you're into Bible stories then you might notice they're bearing gifts that could be gold, frankincense and myrrh.
Then there's a Greek officer from Gorgon Studios. A Steve Saleh sculpt I'm told.
Next there's a Black Tree Designs Tom Baker
4th Doctor from their Dr Who range. I think BTD's Dr Who models are only
slightly better than Citadel's Dr Who range (only slightly mind and I
have much more nostalgic fondness for the Citadel ones). It would be
nice if someone were to produce a new range of Dr Who models (from the
classic years) but I suspect the licence is rather pricey these days.
There's also a Doc Brown type character from
Back To The Future II or III or whatever it was. The one in the old
west. A Gang Fight Games model I think.
I've also painted up an old Citadel Elric The
White Wolf from their long defunct Eternal Champion line. This model is
intended for Project Alchemy charity raffle to raise funds for UNICEF.
For every Pound donated through Project Alchemy you get a raffle ticket
and a chance of winning something. The more you donate, the more chance
you have of bagging something. Keep checking the PA site for updates
and new prizes as they're added.
And finally I've managed to finish off
another of my Bretonnian crossbowmen. This thing has been sitting on my
desk for weeks it seems. All I needed to do was sort out the base work
but I just couldn't be arsed with it until the other day when I was
basing up the other models. One more crossbowman to do now.
