|"...For they are subtle and quick to anger."|
This 28mm scale model of a wizard sat atop a dice whilst smoking a pipe is produced by “Lucid Eye Publications” and was actually sent to me as a free "Gifty" with one of my recent orders. The figure is arguably not quite as cartoonish in style as the manufacturer’s other “Toon Realms” sculpts, but I thought it would still make an excellent statue/objective marker for “Dragon Rampant”.
In addition, I wanted the opportunity to try my hand at a somewhat waterlogged stone figure, in order to test out a possible palette for a much larger figure I plan on submitting to the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. As a result the miniature was super-glued upon a 28mm “Games Workshop” circular base, before subsequently being permanently attached to one of the 40mm thin-lipped circular bases I use for all my objective markers.

Significantly more time-consuming a mini-project has been the eight Lord Rascal's Ghostly Wraiths by "Lucid Eye Publications" I have slowly been progressing. Having primed, washed and dry-brushed the "Toon Realms" spectres, I foolishly thought that the bulk of my work was done, but have since discovered just how hard it is to 'grind out' sixteen "Vallejo" White gloves and assorted teeth. As a result I've split the work down into two groups of four figures, with the first lot now rapidly approaching completion.

In fact, I've become so enthused with the sculpt that I have additionally assembled the expansion set's Killmonger miniature too, and hope to slowly paint my way through two forces where each side has a clear arch-nemesis on the opposing team. I'm also rather keen to pigment a few of the range's models which I don't own as either OOP "Knight Models" or "Heroclix", such as Venom, Okoye and Shuri...
