Strophade's next top model. Wargames Foundry Harpies.



Work has been murder this week with me often in at 6am and leaving 12 hours later to do more at home!

I have been desperate to paint and really itching to hit the brushes but finding myself unable to focus and just flicking paint at several miniatures but I wanted to see some tangible results.


My original plan for these girls was a much more involved paint scheme but they were standing next to another set of miniatures and just seemed to be calling me.

Yesterday I took an hour off and set myself the challenge of getting as many of the five finished as I could within the hour.


Managed to get three done in the hour. They are just a blue ink wash over the grey undercoat. Then red hair and 'Screaming skull' for any bones / talons etc.

Considering they took about 20 minutes each I am more then happy with how they turned out.

Of course being a man of a certain age their muse was these girls from the classic 1963 'Jason and the Argonauts'. . . . .


Heres  the numbers for the year so far.
Miniatures painted / sold this year = 10.

Target 100

Miniatures bought 2 (second is a purchase for my 'year of puns' project).

431 miniatures to go!

 8 in the black this year.

      I have two kids aged 6 and 3 so I tried to just have it all blend together to avoid any awkward questions!
