Originally I had planned on working on my D&D Chainmail minis, but as time has gone by I've changed gears and tried to work on the many projects I have started but never finished. That way I'm not unboxing things and can really appreciate the headway I am making.
So this week I am trying to finish a unit of Empire knights from Warhamner Fantasy. I've had them almost a decade, so they are really ready to get off the pile!

I finished the other three Bugbear Warriors to go with the one I painted last week. They are all from the Reaper Bones 2 Kickstarter. It took a little creativity to come up with some ways to have four identical miniatures looking differently. Of particular effort was the left foot shin guard/right arm guard. It obviously is supposed to be studded leather, but honestly my eyesight and hand-eye coordination isn't that good any more. So I just made them look like bumpy leather or dragon skin.
So here is the whole lot, all ready to abuse adventurers.

So, a quick week since I posted just a few days ago, but I did get one figure painted, a Bugbear Warrior from the Reaper Bones 2 Kickstarter.
After I finished, I realized there were no less than three others in the box, all identical, so I have started getting them up to speed.
So, I don't know if it counts as using a Joker, but I bought a copy of Frostgrave, the new fantasy skirmish game from Osprey. The basic set-up is that each player fields a wizards leading a retinue composed of a group of followers and an optional apprentice against one another in a demolished fantasy city. There are campaign options similar to Mordheim, but what is really nice is you are not confined to a manufacturer's miniatures, but can use anything that fits the bill. I'll take it for a test drive soon.
