Buttercup finished

Finished Buttercup, now I just need to get on and finish Drogo the Barbarian for Tuesdays session of D&D :)

The diamond on her wand looks pretty rubbish, so i will re-do that in a bit, but otherwise she is done.

Couple more pictures

Just another quick post, to show a couple of the minis that i am working on at the moment.
The barbarian has just had base coat and a wash on the flesh but should be finished for my next D&D session :)
The rest are very much WIP but i will be working on them all over the next week or so.

Guess who's back, back again...

Once again I have been away for a while, but am back and with a new hobby :)

I decided a few weeks ago that I would like to play D&D and after a bit of searching around I came across East Midland Roleplayers Gaming Group

After posting that I am completely new to D&D and in fact ALL role-play games, I soon found a game that was just starting up being run by Len (who also happens to be the main man for EMRGG). I was told I would need a Halfling or a Gnome character so I went for a Halfling Barbarian called Drogo Toe-Chomper (A nod to GRRM).

My first session I really enjoyed, the second even more and now as I wait for the 3rd, I find that I am becoming more than a little addicted to D&D!

Now coming from a miniature gaming background I obviously need a model to act as my avatar :) the options were pretty slim since there is only one company that I could find with a Halfling Barbarian - Heresy Miniatures Ghonad the barbarian :)

I ordered all three of the Halfling miniatures available at the time Ghonad, Van Halfling and Norko. I managed to get Drogo painted up in time for the first session (well  90% done and no basing)  and the other two were well on the way.

Unfortunately my wife thought it would be a great idea to throw the bubble wrap they were wrapped up in away!! I wasn't happy!

So I had to re-order the minis but now they come as a set of 4 and I now have "Buttercup, bringer of the Apocalypse" too :)

So at the moment I am painting up the Halflings and some other D&Desque figures I randomly had floating around in a couple of my figure boxes :)

Halfling Ready for painting

Painting cue
The current paint que, Drogo/Ghonad is at the front :) some Reaper Minis(i think) , Limited edition Necromancer, IG Senior Officer/Creed stand in and a test model for my Ogres.

As you can see in the picture, I have also been getting on with my Imperial Guard, painted up a couple more troops and have made a start on the Senior Officer/Creed count as. I have also started an Ogre test model (also in the picture), as I am thinking of stripping down and repainting all 3.5-4k of my Ogre Kingdom Army.

Too dark to take any good pictures at the moment, but I will try and get some more pics of everything tomorrow.

Sorry for the block of text, but I thought it better to post something rather than nothing :)
