No hockey? No problem. The rest of the Ilyad band...

This is the last of the Ilyad figures I recovered from the archives.  The weapon and armor were typical of the detail and fine casting these folks did.  It sure made a painter's life much easier!!!

Forget the lockout, this guy is ready to play!

For those of you who did not see most of the original posts, here are a few of the other figures from this batch...

And then a couple of group shots...

And then there was one... Handgunners nearly complete!

Almost there!

As you look at this, the final handgunner is being painted.  Once he is done, I will do some clean up work and tie in a few more details.  Then it's on to the Swordsmen unit!

There will be a color change, however, as we switch to Nuln... partly for the sanity of both myself and Jon. :-)

I am working on something brand new that may be revealed tomorrow which has made me think of yet another set of DVD's.  Painting horses!  Why the heck I had not thought of that until now is beyond me, given how many horses I have painted this year!

This would easily be a set of 4 to 6 DVD's.  Dapple grey, Palomino, White, Brown, Appaloosa, and the list goes on.  Years ago, Cathy and I purchased a 600 page volume which contained an encyclopedia of information on horses.  Countless breeds and styles.  I love painting horses, so why not?

Of course, this raises the question of who to 'partner up' with on this.

Aside from GW, I will have to think about what company that could be.  There are a few manufacturers who make some decent horses...
