Much as I love these little critters, I'm glad to have them finished so that I can move on to the Ral Partha trolls (which are now thoroughly under way). Anyway, here's a group shot:

Are you sure those are enough Rabbits?
 
My spouse was just admiring your photo too, and insisting that I have to order some...

Took a few minutes hunting, this was a KS project and has landed with Skull & Crown:

 lol It makes a change for me to be costing other people hobby money!

I do actually have two more, armed with bows, that will see paint at some point.

It's fun to enjoy vicarious shopping when you lure others in.
 
Now to figure out what I can use them for though...  I already have a dozen nappified goblin goblins for TSB.  And pixies done too.

And very fine they are, too! I love their helmets and crests.

Trolls! These two lovely under-bridge-lurkers have been waiting patiently in a drawer for several years, possibly many years, but are now ready to be unleashed on some of Wellington's scum of the Earth. Like the other monsters, they'll inevitably get used in RPGs and games like Dragon Rampant or One Page Rules Fantasy Skirmish (which I haven't played but looks useful for school gaming club).



Edit: just noticed I hadn't re-blacked the base rims. Not worth reposting, but I'll fix that before varnishing the whole project at the end.

Hope it didn't seem ott, MrRab - just I'm a big fan of Olley's 'good' stuff - and you see people asking scalping prices on ebay for stuff which is actually still available.

anyhow - great work on the bases too.

Not at all! You covered my forgetfulness nicely - and scalpers wind me up too!

Thanks, I'm trying to be a bit more adventurous and chuck loads of greenery on.

The night was still, unnaturally so., no sound of any living thing apart from the ragged gasps of his own breathing. Then, out of the darkness, first one, then two, then a whole flurry of savage howls tore the silence. They were like wolf howls, but imbued with a mocking malice...

Here we have a slightly goofy looking pack of Black Wolves if you study the combination of poor brush control and minor miscasting/unnoticed flash around the teeth. Perfect miniature works of art? They are not. Tabletop-ready foes for melodramatic gothic adventures with dice and imagination? Yes indeed!



These, like many of what I've got for the monsters, came from Ral Partha Europe and, as far as I know, are still available. I found them in a single ziplock bag in one of my boxes, but they seem to come in pairs from the RPE website
