So I've finally decided to put some of my minis up. I've sort of found myself unwittingly participating in the impossible dream challenge. For whatever reason I've been going through a painting craze. Last week I painted up my Invictors w/ UA (12pts) and my Maniticore (8pts).
For this week I decided to move on to House Guard w/ UAs (19pts). Initially I thought I would just be painting the Halberdiers but decided (in a fit of insanity) to also paint up my riflemen. So I have a 24 of these elves in formation on my painting table. Hopefully they'll be done by tomorrow (but honestly its looking more like monday).
After they're done I'll paint of my phoenix and maybe my two lights (Chimera/Griffon). No really sure.
I probably should have said this earlier but...its always really bugged me that Ret minis are painted super clean. They are a guerrilla force that operates in the field for weeks at a time away from their main outposts. Why are the so spotless? I never got that (that doesn't mean there aren't some beautiful Ret schemes that are crisp and clean--its just not my thing). So in order to counter-act that trend I've painted my Ret as dirty w/ colors that blend in a little better than say white.
Anyway here are the pics. I can take more if you'd like and C&C are always welcome.
