Enjoying finally having time to paint again! You'll get the title post in a bit...

First up, finished my Milice!
A ten man inexperienced squad for use in the Anti-partisan list. Been nice painting these as they're a bit different, and as Kieron pointed out, chances are no one else has this squad! Unique high five! They're made using standard German infantry bodies, French head and British weapons. I've never used inexperienced troops before but managed to give them a run out in a large team up game Matt and I had against Kieron and Wes. Long story short, we won. Long story not quite so short, we embarassed them! Actually, it was mostly them embarassing themselves. Mostly Kieron, who will now be known as Kier-one for his string of pointblank tank rolls that either failed to hit or failed to penetrate when only a 1 would fail...!

Anyway, next up, German heavy mortar:
Pretty standard paint job. I think this is the largest artillery any of us own so far, so it'll be interesting seeing how it does in games. Got a few SS and standard infantry left to paint then I'm all up to date with my Germans. Not sure what will be added next. Fancy something a bit odd like a Neblewerfer...

Next up is my treasure, hence the title:
Gold! As we've all invested in the Frostgrave rules, and I plan on using my existing Dwarfs to begin, the only thing I need at present to play was the 3 treasure tokens. Having a quick scour of the web brought these little beauties from Dark-Art Studios. A pack of 7 treasure chests and 3 coin piles came in at about £10. I still have 3 chests and 1 large coin pile left. There is the posibility of  needing an extra 2 treasure tokens in the game depending on spells so these will get done if I see the need.

I was hoping to get the Otherworld Miniatures limited edition Zagor model painted, but a miscast hand has delayed this. I contacted Otherworld and they replied very quickly to say not only would they send a replacement, but that it would be one of the master castings used to make the production mould! Bonus!

So, currently on the painting table while I wait for this to arrive is a warhound for Frostgrave and a couple of SS for my Germans.

Finally finished The Watchmen!

Well, it's taken me a while but here is my final Watchman:
The Comedian! Again, I really enjoyed painting this model. Not a massive amount to do with it as he's mostly black but I think he looks ok.

And the whole gang! The Watchmen:
Now all I need to do is read the rulebook again and find somebody else who plays the game. No one I play with mentions it very much....

Forgot to watch a Watchman!

 Watchman, Watchwoman?! Either way, with all the excitement of moving house and revising for an exam I'd completely forgotten that I'd painted Silk Spectre!

So here she is:

Not sure if the yellow is yellew enough but I think she looks ok! Not an easy model to paint as the details are quite shallow but I still enjoyed painting her.

Only 1 member left to paint, Comedian. When I bought him he came with one of those stupid new bobbly bases, but I've managed to find a plain base! He's next on my list after finishing the final 5 French Milice guys that are currently on the painting table.
