    Re: Harry's Quest

    This one is my fave:



    I won't post them all but here is a group shot:



    They are a bugger to paint .... they are tiny.

    I can't decide what colour to paint the eyes or if I should just dot in the pupils?

    Couple snotlings in there I don't have (pout)

    They are fun to paint up, whomever did the last of the first set you posted, completed a series of them in poses and grins that I feel are the best of the whole collection and personify snotlings.. almost Paul Bonner-like in caricature.

    The bases are a nice contrast, might try something similar on my beastmen bases next.

    Re: Harry's Quest

    Then I got these Squigs done. Bit of a quick and dirty paint job but they do the trick:

    I have got some spares ... which ones are you after?

    All of these are Marauder miniatures. I guess they were Aly or Trish Morrison.

    Re: Harry's Quest

    I needed some skeleton archers ... as it turns out a had a few nice old metal ones.



    They turned out like this:





    Whilst I was about it I painted up enough for a Warhammer unit ... Just need to do a command group.

    One can only imagine the glee you must experience every day when you open up yet another box of miniatures and find hidden and forgotten treasure. I myself have experienced this feeling on some occasions, but I'd wager it pales in comparison to what you have lying around. Love those skelly archers, nice paintjob too!

    Good thing that you mentioned this in your other plog, without putting a link in your sig I wouldn't have found it I fear. Good crop in twenty days, even if you painted most of them before starting the plog. "I will follow", as those Irishmen sang.

    I make light of it. These have taken me a while to collect. To add to the few I had I needed to win 4 different e-bay lots spread over 3 years to get enough for a unit of 20

    Hello mate. Actually forget 20 days. I painted the majority of these in one day and the bases in another day .... just those two days were several days apart.

    Everything looks great Harry! You're an amazingly fast painter. Love the work you did on the spiders.

    Re: Harry's Quest

    Looking good, enjoying all the early era figures; personally going to use the new plastics from Vampire Counts - have a couple of ideas they can help me make; but I have several classic figures to use as NPC undead the heroes will encounter. Yet to see a decent mummy figure since this era too.

    Had a peek at my sachet of unpainted snotlings, missing just this guy:



    I think you're right about Marauder being on the ball when making snotlings; virtually all my favourites are from their ranges. Happy to do a trade over PM should you have a spare

    Yeah, I tend to roam the "smaller" sections of Warseer every once in a while when I get scared of GW General or something and as it seems it pays off every once in a while.

    Quality work there, Harry. Thanks for sharing!

    The skeletons look great - the bases really set them off nicely.

    I have those mummies.
    I also have that snotling as a spare.
    Drop me a PM and I will send him your way.

    Thanks. Bases, bases. bases.
    As Dave Andrews says ... bases and faces.... and he is absolutely right.

    Re: Harry's Quest

    Here are the snotlings again. They are now finished with static grass on the bases.



    Here is some even older lil' green skins ... much older.

    ...and even SMALLER!

    These are pre-slotta "Lesser Night Goblins".
    They are rare as hell, a b@gger to find on e-bay and I really want a couple more if anyone has some.

    I very nearly based these up as snotling swarms for use with my Night Goblin army ... which would have been cool.
    But in the end my ongoing interest with skirmish games and dungeon bashing won the day and I based them up individually.

    Here is a little conversion I did for a standard bearer:



    Here they are as a ranked up unit.



    ... and small skirmishing unit of archers:

    Re: Harry's Quest

    Those guys look a lot like the current lotr concepts in a strange way. It's always fun to check your logs Harry, I've been in this hobby since I was 10ish and you are constantly showing me models I had NO idea existed! And you're a fast and talented painter to boot

    LOL didn't know my collection was THAT obscure. Thanks very much. There are muuch better painters ... but I can knock stuff out fast when I get some time to paint.
