Sword looks absolutely amazing. Just the right amount I reckon. It should be bedazzled, being a genie and all.

That's just AWESOME! I love the model and love the paint job. Conquest is putting out some very cool miniatures lately. They have an old skool vibe, but new skool quality. Seeing this lovely model brought to life by your excellent painting really makes me excited to buy it and paint it myself. I'm also really looking forward to seeing what they do with the range. In short; great job! :-*

A couple of Summoners to go with the Genie; Mike at Conquest Games tells me these two will be sold as part of the usual 'wizard' twin-pack when released, but also in a bundle with the Genie. I don't usually paint in light, bright colours, but I needed to go out of my comfort zone for this one. I also had to learn how to paint sheer fabrics for the beguiling female Summoner and it went okay, but it's fair to say I'm still learning.

A nice big bundle of new releases from Conquest Games, for their Myths of Albion goodies.

First up, some folklore characters.



The Brownie is a helpful little spirit who does the household chores at night in return for a bowl of cream. With hands and feet worn red with work, the Brownie will play pranks on lazy servants and will leave any house if they feel offended.



Puck is another mischievous spirit who may play tricks or be helpful depending on his mood, but is also a romantic sort who is known to fall for a pretty girl.



Red Cap is not so much mischievous as a murderous little bastard. This malevolent spirit will murder people simply to dye his cap in the blood of his victims. Nasty git.




This pack consists of more Svartalfar (primitive subterranean goblins) for the Myths of Albion range, armed with stone spears.




And last but not least, a great Pied Piper bundle.



Here's the Piper himself (any resemblance to Jethro Tull's frontman is, I'm sure, completely coincidental ....), with (agonisingly hand painted) diamond pattern coat.




A nice little rat swarm.



And a very funky giant rat 'Rat King', the (probably mythical) phenomenon of a number of rats with entangled tails living as one. According to myth, they share a hive mind, with an intelligence far beyond that of their individuals.

Some lovely additions to the range, wonderfully coloured-in, of course.

What, mythical?  You mean the Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents is fiction?  :)

The coat on the piper looks like it was a nightmare to paint but it certainly came out beautifully.

I recall encountering the Rat King for the first time in 'The Ballad of Halo Jones' in 2000AD. It was ... very weird.

They're one of the more peculiar bits of European folklore, yeah.  They're not actually wholly fictitious, just usually either faked after death like taxidermied jackalopes.  The few (partially) living ones have either been ghastly birth defects or had their tails entangled in foreign substances on top of being broken and knotted together.

If the internet is to be believed there are also recent (like 2005 and 2013) cases of "squirrel kings" on record, which strikes me as even more terrifying.
