After building my base building from French Model Workshop the other day, I used some spare time to get it painted. A couple of hours playing with the spray cans and washes on Wednesday and an hour or so playing with pigments and some blister foam and here I was !

OK, so new year, new projects, some dating from way back and some brand new. Well, this one is actually a bit of both.
I've been toying with the idea of an undead force for a long time now but with my "armies" days behind me, I just didn't have the will nor stamina to do a big project like this anymore.
Good thing is, Frostgrave and Mordheim followed by Dragon Rampant with the Champions of Law have tought me small forces can easily made and augmented if you want to scratch a special itch.
With that in mind, since I had painted a zombie for deadcember, I just had to paint a model now and then to slowly but steadily grow my group into a playable force.
Frostgrave being centered around the wizard and his(her) apprentice, I opted for a pair of vampires. Vampires are cool. Well they can be.
Some are. OK ?

The other day I was reading Morikun's blog and I fell upon a very interesting post about new scenery kits to come.
I have to say it immediately pressed my buttons, I'm still looking for scenery solutions that are modular and easy enough to use and French Model Workshop seem to have come up with some really fancy stuff.

Along with the scaly mutant from last post, I got this wonderful little creature full of character. I honestly don't know what its name is but I love it.
Its one of those sculpts you don't think about at first but which is essential to give a bit more depth to a setting or to the characters next to it.

It seems I just can't get my attention from those scavvies... well not that I'd complain really !
After posting the last mutants for the group, I was kindly given the opportunity to paint a copy of Barnacle Ben, the Scaled warrior from Bind Beggar Miniatures. I'm usually one to like being given such opportunities so after receiving it yesterday at noon. I immediately prepared, based and primed it.

New year's resolutions... the fools amongst us keep making them believing they'll respect them while the most strong willed adhere to them to the letter. Well I'm a sort of strong willed fool so I kind of always stay in this middle ground. Why all this rant ? Well I've decided to get as many half finished projects out of my table as I could so after finishing the last 2 models on new year's day, I turned to the next most finished model I could see. Turns out it was a model begun almost exactly a year ago... Oh the shame...Well Fabius Bile was lucky enough to be alone and half finished on top of his old paint pot so I grabbed him !

Sooo, I've spent a very quiet new year's eve. I was at home with my son enjoying a quiet night with no noticable noise from the neighbors (unusual and unexpected) and just felt like painting since I'd have many more occasions to parteh. Unfortunately these 2 guys were finished at 00:30 so they're going to count for 2017 !
I had these 2 booked for the scavvie band but didn't feel like painting 8 models right away so I first started with the more human members to then get back to the more heavily mutated members.
