    With the top post essentially out of the way (barring the edits this evening) here we go ladies and frogs!

    2020, new decade, more painting.

    What's up on the docket I hear you ask? Well at first:

    10 skeleton warriors with Spears
    8 skeleton warriors with swords
    1 skeleton champion with spear
    1 guardian of souls
    1 spirit torment
    1 Lord executioner
    1 knight of shrouds on steed

    After that, I have a bunch of cities of Sigmar stuff primed, and then all of my bonereapers haul from Christmas. The remainder of the chaos commission, a full warcry starter set for a friend (I get to keep the golems) and more besides.

    Watch this blog.

    And they are within one stage of completion (drybrush on basing material when dry) so 10 skeletons are good. The eagle eyed may notice only 7 shields. I have more in progress. And this was with taking a break to watch a couple episodes of the Witcher season 1.

    Skeletons are done. Waiting on basing material to dry before attaching shields. Also need to drybrush the basing material when dry.
