Final Headcount

Last post for the year in total I have managed 154 figures, virtually three every week despite a lot of travel with work (over 20 outbound flights this year). I also managed to mainly stick to projects in hand and not buy many figures.
I have the otherworld miniatures indiegogo figures but still waiting the second batch. I love these figures and would have bought more if not put off by the delays with the indiegogo delivery.
So totals for the year are:-
Call Of Cthulhu 37 Darkest Africa 8 Mahdists 4 USA WW2 12 Modern Zombies 4 Fantasy RPG 89

3 Monsters (including another manticore)

Some recent painting

Otherworld Manticore

Otherworld Shambling Mound

And finally a Dungeons and Dragons collectors series resin Purple Worm, which I perfer to the Otherworld ones

Manticore Repaint

I recently decided to strip down an old citadel Manticore figure and repaint it.

After looking at the figure I decide that the base colour was fine.

To improve the paint job I washed the figure with citadel devlin wash, then highlighted with Vallejo Tan Yellow and added black to the tail and main.

The original base was bland so I created a new one using pieces of flint picked up while walking the dog.

I think that it is a considerable improvement over the original, which hardly looks like the same figure,
