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!
