More maidens!

Super excited to receive this parcel the other day, with 38 more maiden guard to swell the army of Avelorn!

My high elf army will be mainly female, with lots of troops from Avelorn to follow the Everqueen into battle. There will, of course, be some supporting troops from Tiranoc and Chrace, and maybe a dragon or two. But the bulk of the army will be made up of units of Sisters of Avelorn, maiden guard figures as Spearwomen, units of female archers, and also some converted Ellyrian Reavers (using Sisters of Avelorn heads and torsos). There will also be an Everqueen Chariot and a battle standard bearer on unicorn or pegasus (or both, since I can't seem to decide!) - looking forward to putting these together!

WIP: Hobby room!

I've not really done much in the way of painting lately, for various reasons too numerous to list, but here's one of them: renovations! And why is that exciting? Because we are turning our old outdoor (freestanding? As in, not attached to our house ...) studio into a hobby room!

This is what it looked like before:


We wanted a fun colour on the walls, here are some WIPs:

Next, we got the floor levelled and installed a timber floor (and when I say "we", I mean a professional!):

Christian put in some wall shelving:

And is in the process of building some cabinets for all our hobby stuff-in-boxes!

There's still a ways to go before it's ready, and some plans for future additions (like a game table on wheels!), but it's looking fantastic so far if we do say so ourselves!

Hopefully this will lead to increased productivity on the hobby side for both of us!

Well, well, well ... A Flintloque adventure!

Hi all! So, we finally got down to playing a game this weekend. Quite fun indeed!

Christian put together a battle report, which you can read here. Enjoy!

Flintloque general

My latest Flintloque figure on the table: a dogman mounted general!

He's only WIP here, with a lot of highlighting (which I've since started!) to go. Then, of course, his trusty steed!


Dark and light backgrounds to get a better idea of the colours. Not the best pictures in the world, but good enough for a quick update! Will post better pics when it's finished.

Reading materials have arrived!

I've taken to collecting some of the older  (and some not-so-older) army books and hobby books. Most recently I picked up these two off a Facebook forum.

I also came across a High Elves army book I hadn't seen before at CanCon, which seems to have completed my collection of High Elf army books! I really must post some pictures and find out if there are any others ...

Looking forward to flicking through all of these!

Flintloque: Elf maiden

I painted this lady up sometime last year but never got around to taking pictures until recently when I put her up on my new Facebook page, Pegasus Paintbox (here).

I'm particularly happy with how her hair turned out:


Comments welcome! :-)

PEGASUS PAINTBOX: New Facebook page!

Hi all,

Just thought I'd do a quick post about my new Facebook page Pegasus Paintbox. I've decided to put up some examples of my painted work on Facebook, and maybe start including some "on my painting table" WIPs as I try to make more time for painting this year!

I know I've said "the year of the brush" a couple of times before, but this is definitely IT!

Check out the page here and "Like" it while you're at it! :-)

CanCon 2015

Another year, another haul! Found quite a few things I've been looking for, but I'm particularly excited about these!

Morathi on Dark Pegasus: I've been after this one for a conversion I've been wanting to do for my Wood Elves. I only need the body for my conversion, so I'm busily thinking of ideas on how to use D-Peg ... got a couple already! Let's see how we go ...

High Elf Pegasus: VERY happy indeed to have found this one! I've already got two of these pegasi but I could never find a complete model that didn't also break the bank (the rider and throne are next to impossible to find alone as well)! This one is going straight into the Simple Green tub when we get home!

I'm excited to finally be able to remove this from my wants list!

Troops march on ...

Not much of an updated, but seeing as my Flintloque troops haven't seen much progress in recent months and I've finally managed to put some time into them, here's a WIP:

Highlighting on the yellow all done, which I'm quite happy about! There's also a dwarf mini who freelances for Schnoselburg, who is almost finished ... I'll post up a pic of him soon as well.

More pics to come soon of the finished minis ☺
