If you're still looking for a name for the druidess, why not Elswyth (Anglo-Saxon for "Elf from the Willow trees") or Wilda (also Anglo-Saxon, this time "Wild")? Áinfean (Irish for "Storm" "Fury") or Draighean (Blackthorn)?
Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".
Congratulations on your exams being over, OTG. Your installation looks great... do you have any larger pics of the minis? I bet none of your classmates had anything so exciting! You should be very proud of your accomplishments.
SO excited about Jacques D'Urisine... my Monty Python army shall have a Sir Bedevere at last! And as an undead player I couldn't look at myself in the mirror if I didn't preorder the Barrow Wight. If funds permitted I'd get them all.
Can I call myself your biggest fan yet?
P.S. The Griffling is adorable, and a great idea. Will they be on some sort of "swarm" type base?
P.P.S. I plugged your site again on my plog! Just spreadin' the Warpy love!

Congrats on getting your project finished mate! Looks good.
Cool to see the older models up for grabs. The engineer looks cool and am loving the Griffling.
I whacked down a bit of money for the Rogue Knight and Halfling Wizard.
Let's hope they get cast cos I'd lurveeeee both of those models for WHQuest NPCs!
Finally I can get the knight, very good. I will put up an order for the rest of them as well.
The Halfling turned out really well, love the posing and the little "abracadabra" move. The Elf is a great miniature on itself, will have to look for a place for it. The barrow wight is a great addition to Arcworlde and a must have miniature as well.
Besides that web shop needs to get filled with awesomeness.
Congratulations on the Art of ArcWorlde, let's hope all of them survive. A nice start on the engineer as well and the trooper looks like he has not shaved for a few days.
Saw the pics, and I wish I could say I love the griphling, but sorry, Paris is overrun with frickin' pigeons that **** everywhere and I hate them (they also have a tendency to fly at eye level along walkways, trying to ram people in the face...)
Wow the Griffling looks cute as......well an overly cute thing on cute pills.
Are they going to be just for the Albionnicans or will they be available for others as i could easily see the Halflings using them on the farm to keep the rodents under control as well as any flying pests.
I like the paintjob on "Mrs Badcrumble" or whatever the cook is called lol

Thanks for your comments - I was planning to write a normal post, replying to comments and posting up pictures and whatnot, but it turns out I really don't have time!
Just a quick message to say that I'll be on holiday in Florida for the next two weeks and a bit, so won't be able to post updates, reply to emails, or ship miniatures for at least that amount of time!
See you all in a fortnight!
Noooo! Don't you have a smartphone with that tapatalk shennanigan or something? Well enjoy your holidays
I sure hope he gets back soon because I cannot order all four of the pre orders, I keep getting validation errors when trying to add more then one different miniature to my cart.
Ah, four more days to wait before I start bugging him.
Well, I'm back home, and WHAT a holiday it has been - effin' BRILLIANT You missed me? Haha!
I have not been idle however, Oh no! Seeing as I was staying in Florida, famous for it's swamps, rednecks, and 'gator infested waters, I thought it would be rather fitting to visit once again the Cayjon Swamplands, and sculpt some more Bayourks!
Now, those who are familiar with the Arcworlde rules ( so far that is) will know that I don't actually have any models for the staple of any Bayourk warband - the Brutes. These guys are your core troops, those lads who rush in and just smash ***** up, carrying away any loot they can find, and setting fire to anything they cant plunder. I've always been a bit wary about doing Bayourk troops, as there are so many cheaper, better orcs out there on the market already ( eg. Mantic and GW), but the selling power I'm gonna try and have with these is a) They are generally bigger than most other company's troop orcs, b) They will be dynamic and customisable, with lots of different arm choices such as flaming torches, plundered goods and other gubbinz and most importantly, c) They are made just for Arcworlde :P Haha!
ANyway, enough yabber, here is a WIP of Brute numero dos -
And compared to Brute numero uno -
I plan to do about 4 or 5 of these, so stay tuned those who are interested!
Read on for more!
The next model I decided to make is yet another which is missing from my Bayourk list - A Cheiftain mounted on a Swamphawg! I had already made the swamphawg, so all I needed to do was do the rider, and here is what I have got so far -
What's that I hear you cry? He isn't the usual poo-brown of my usual sculpts? You are correct, as I have been introduced to a NEW putty - Magic Sculp! I was sent a small sample of it by a lad on another forum, and I have fallen in love with it! The only downside is that it seems to be even more difficult to photograph than the last lot :/ Ahhh well, hopefully you will get the jist! The rider will be in two parts - the body and arms, and then the legs. I have done the body separate, so that it is easy to convert other models to ride the Swamphawg, and saves alot of faffing around on everyone's part - good eh? What do you think?
Oh, and one last thing - we went to a Polynesian restaurant whilst in Florida, one which was covered in awesome carvings, so I decided, as a bit of fun, to sculpt a Tiki-esque mask -
What could I use it for? A more feral Witch-Dockta? Possible one riding a Swamphawg? WHat do you think?
Read on for more!
ANyway, thats your lot for now - I only got back this morning, and I'm very, VERY tired! On the good side, I have finished college for good now, so I have 2 whole months off before I start Uni to really try and expand the range, so stay tuned folks!
Oh yes! whilst I've been away I see there there hasnt been much activity on the Pre-Ordering front, so I have extended the Swords for Hire Pre-Order to the 22nd of July - grab them whilst you can guys!
Jacques D'Urisine - Rogue Gallican Knight
Wild Elven Fell Druidess
Bibbington "The Sorceror" Bells
And last but not least... the dreaded Barrow Wight
Cheers - it's good to be back!
Oh yes, and to any who are interested, I have added a new shipping option to my webstore...
Whereas the only option for international shipping was Signed For, which is £8 now there is an option for Un-Signed International Delivery, which is half the price at £4!
I know that the cost of delivery has been putting some of you guys off from placing an order, but hopefully this should make things a bit easier and cheaper for everyone
Hey man, love the updates! Could we see a different angle on that knight?
