New Workspace and more Woodland Realm

There has not been much painting lately, due to my Significant Other and myself saving and buying a new condo.  That said, we have nearly doubled our square footage, allowing us a craft/game room, which of course means I have gotten a new painting area.

 

I was able to get my old drafting desk from my storage at my mother’s, so I have a nice (mostly) stable work surface now, and then half of a book shelf for current projects.  You can see Dystopian Wars (which at some point I will post some of probably), some anglo saxons, and some parts of a few genestealers (yea, im still working on that project).  The lead pile is under the desk mostly.  The drafting desk is nice because I can set it taller (im 6’3″), making for painting that is easier on my back and shoulders.

 

For miniatures, the latest completion were some Microworld Woodelf Archers .  Even with the one pack I did before, I still think I might need a few more….Elves should have tons of bows right?

These figures came out great.  Ive paints a pack before, but these ones are definitely better than the last.

Next up are some more centaurs, this time spear users.  These are great figures.  There are two poses, both of which are nice, and unlike the nobles, are very distinct.  I did have a rough time keeping the spears on the guys holding them at an angle straight, but it looks good enough for government work to me.

The detail on these figures is fantastic, my painting don’t do them justice.

Some unfortunate news I have noticed recently, Scale creep miniatures is going to stop getting new baccus minis for at least now.  Which is a real shame, they are the only place I know to get baccus in the US (and always give me a good excuse to get some more coat d’ arms paint 😀 ).  Luckily I had recently ordered some more sun people units.  My current project is some of those very minis, as well as the first of several pendraken miniatures I aquired.
