I feel like I'm between projects at the moment, with nothing I urgently need to get painted. Which means a dip in productivity. But my lead pile has been well bolstered this year, so I'm taking the chance to finish off some oddments.
This pair of giant snakes join my Minoans for Aegeus. The game has a number of summon-able creatures and what better than a couple of massive snakes. I was stuck for ages for how to paint them, I'm a bit of a stickler for colour themes across a force, but the Minoans had come out in bright of turquoise and blue. These are mythological creatures, which gives some room for imagination, but I didn't think either the blue or turquoise would work. Then it struck me that I could have two themes - colourful humans but the mythological creatures with a more subdued palette.
Manufacturer is Otherworld miniatures - very fine sculpts but a tad pricey at £11 for both if I recall.
What happened to Aegeus, you ask? Well, not a huge amount over the summer unfortunately. A bit much real life in the way. But I'm sure Gharak and I will get a bit more play testing this autumn. (he's been prodding me to paint something for it, anyway).
Plenty of other stuff on the painting table, a few bits for BKC, more for Aegeus, SciFi vehicles etc. I even put some paint on some Napoleonic cavalry, shock horror.
