Knights of the Order of the Panther

I've been slowly painting up these Empire Knights as members of the Order of the Panther. Slowly because as figures they're really not that inspiring. Rumor control has it that they may be replaced next year with a new set which would be good since these have been in production since 1999 or 2000.

Anyway, almost done. Just need to tidy up them a little, print off a banner and add some flocking to the bases.

On a completely different note, I found this chap drowned on my back deck this afternoon. A fairly impressive example I must say.

About 5cm/2 inches in legspan...

Skaven & Scenery - two great flavours that taste great together

Actually I suspect that would taste pretty damn foul.

But I do have Skaven pictures. First up, a completed unit of frenzied plague monks

And this warlord who was the Gamesday figure is nearly completed, just needs some tidying up and the base done...

And I also have some nearly done scenery, in this case the Dreadstone Blight - an abandoned former wizzards tower. Can't quite finish it as I need to pin the second level floor to the surrounding walls and don't have the means to do so right now.

Carlos Hathcock in Vietnam dio

This was my entry for the last competition at I didn't place anywhere, but that was because all the other entries were very very good.

Figures are from Pegasus's US Marines in Vietnam set, and a great set it is too.

The original photo that I was trying to copy is this one I picked up from

...and here is my version...

If I was doing it again, I'd take more time to remove the mould lines and to make the base match up with the feet.
