It looks good, though it doesn't look gold. It might just be the picture, but it looks more like the browns that you said. That's what stuck out about it to me, they are almost desert camo. I like that it's different.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Last minute entry, finally finished those pesky archers. Tryning to remodel a kitchen and paint minis is an adventure... Sorry for the sucky pics, but I have no time to try harder.

Ten High Elf Archers. There is one extra from the original six I painted about two years ago. I think they match well.

Not a good start for the challenge, RLC for me please.

Will get these Horrors done in June, that is a promise!

Loving that effect in the lower portion!

I think i'm going to have to play a RLC. Being ill this weekend, along with my brush and white paint deciding it's a good time to go horrible means I won't be able to finish the unit to a satisfactory standard. I hate white.

I'm going to go nap, then might give it one last ditch effort to get the unit finished before tomorrow.

Had a good power nap, a bath and some indian, and managed to bust out the rest of the unit to an acceptable standard. I'll go back and add further details later on, but they'll do for now:



This is the best photo I can do for the moment, it being night time and all I'll add some better lighted photos to my log tomorrow!

Did these pics from back on page 6 show up? Because Boc let me know that the ones I posted in the May monthly challenge never showed up. Am hoping it didn't happen to both posts :/

Thats your lot for the month. The June thread is now open.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.
