Is exactly what they are. Black Ernie is a carrion wraith, one of his champions is a Kev Adams Snorkling, the other is Warmaster chaos. The main force of Creeplings are Warmaster Night Goblins and the bigger ones are Pendraken Night Orcs.

They started out because I wanted to see if the Warmaster Goblins would fit in a Snotling force. Then I built fluff around a clan of Snotlings who live in the very deepest, darkest caves and are of a particularly malicious bent. The Creeplings are regarded as the Black Sheep of Snotling kind.

Re: Octobers Painting Challenge with Halloween Bonus

One day a band of brave adventurers broke the seal on an ancient burial mound and set about pillaging, ahem excavating the tombs within. Some hours later after much screaming and the like a curious hobbit named Baldwin rose from his picnic lunch to investigate. To his horror he saw four ghostly shapes emerge from the barrow.

Image

Dropping what remained of lunch he ran back to the village to raise the milita, who contemplating a long campaign settled down to roast a pig.

Image

Baldwin terrified at this lack of urgency from the militia and still not having recovered his appetite ran to the woods to summon extra help

Image

And thus begins the tale of Baldwin the Hungry, Hobbit Hero.

Re: Octobers Painting Challenge with Halloween Bonus

Orcs ('cos I fancy doing some orcs), a lovely old troll, some of the "new" Foundry mercs, and skellies for the Halloween theme:

I need to improving my spray undercoating technique - all those light bits on the figures are bits I missed with my spray.

My Favorited Troll, a selection of orcs and some new old figures a lovely selection.

I have the same problem wit spray undercoat - I use a watered down Vallejo grey to finish off. I also find that this helps me spot a few mold lines or blemishes that I missed when cleaning the figures.

I'm lazy and impatient so I'm just going to paint over the gaps and hope for the best.

Re: Octobers Painting Challenge with Halloween Bonus

I always use several coats of black spray, from different directions, to have a good coverage.
But even so, I must finish it with a brush...

For the challenge, I was too impatient, so I've begun before the week-end.
This evening, I will post a pic of them in their black glory (as they were wednesday), and another one of them as they stood now.
My knights have started to receive the first coats of painting (steel is done, and I've begun to paint the heraldry in the first of them).

So I promise you : if I finish them before the deadline, I'll add some stuff to my october challenge (V2 terminators or IG, for example...).
Old and new minis, GW and non-GW, commission and personnal work, it's at http://studiocaillou.blogspot.fr/
