Funny you should mention the mounted character - I was surprised to find my Elf spearmen have a mounted leader for the command unit.  I think it adds some variety to a limited sculpt!

Great work on the shield variety here!

Yep, the central strips of high elves units are superb

I have actually got around to painting stuff, I'm just slow to photograph it.

Here's a Giant for Februray:


And Wolf Riders that I did in January


Not good photos... or paintjobs really, but oh well.

The Giant is supposed to be tanned (as I can't imagine them finding much shade) but it seems to just make him a brownish blob at a distance.
The Wolf Rider wolves are supposed to be more like wild dogs, hence the varied colours. The army also has a lot of unusually bright colours- the background is that they're from the Massif Orcal, and have taken on some knightly habits. They take the bright clothing and caparisons of knights for their clothing.

Great background! I like the mix of colors for the wolves-wild dogs, specialist the white one with the eye and lips very neaty in black. It has strong.

good job Geep

I actually do not have any new finished minis to show. I have been working on a large block painting of 14 cavalry units, and I am about 3/4 of the way through them.  I should have them finished for the March TOWP, and maybe some of the ten infantry units left in the Kislev Army....

Great work on the drums there!  I was a little sceptical but it's come together nicely!

Hey black edd those drums are astonishing!! great detail on the wood amd great idea also.

Did it works as the commander unit or some type of mount like the waraltar in Empire or dwarf anvil or something?

@Tristan Hoag, let's what you bring next month... it sound promising. by the way Clarkson is great!  should I make an empire dumptankist figure named Sir Clarkson?

JChaos:  This is the general's stand, no mounts or anything like that.  This started life as a 40mmx40mm stand, but is grew when I wanted to add the taiko drums.  There is room to add a retinue if needed, or a marker of any divine ancestry that was purchased.

Hmmm.....

Great.  Now I'm thinking of adding to it!

What a great end to the February tale, I was starting to think the thing had all but fizzled out and then this happens on the bonus leap-year day! For me the stand-out thing has to be the wood of the drums in BlackEd's diorama, they're very realistic. Now I feel re-motivated to get something painted after a very quiet painting month, thanks everyone!

Great looking general stand BlackEd- it's an interesting idea and it must really stand out on the field.

@jchaos79- Thanks!
