Skeletons Complete
(Now With 23% More Ghostliness!)

With a few more Harlequins done, I switched gears again to work on the Kings of War army I got through their Kickstarter, and seeing as how my Necromancer can summon skeletons in DnD, the skeleton portion was an obvious next step. A very easy time with these as unlike most of my projects, very few colors were used and it turned out that basing these guys was the step that took the longest (and I'm still not even close to getting rid of all of this basing flock!). More pics after the jump.

by Matthew Farrer
(A Book Review)

As I mentioned in my last book review, I like to read novels that center on the project I'm working on. Unfortunately for me, there are only two novels for the Harlequins (The Victim's Dance doesn't count). So I picked up Faces by Matthew Farrer shortly after finishing The Masque of Vyle and dived right in. This is minimum spoilers country, people. You've been warned... More after the jump.

Shadowseer Complete
(Now Ya' Seer, Now Ya' Don't)

The second to the last piece of this army is complete, and I think it turned out great considering I just kept tossing idea after idea into this thing as I went along. I must admit, having read a Harlequin novel where a Shadowseer pumped narcotics into a large area causing others to hallucinate was a driving force behind this finished product from the transition of colors, to the spotted effects, to the teal hallucinogenic smoke pumping out; it was all new to me as I went along and I'm lucky as hell it turned out as well as it did. More pics after the jump.

Death Jester Complete
('Dem Bones 'Dem Bones)

Another Harlequin down and this time it's the Death Jester. I love this model, I love the concept of the Death Jester in the novels and I'm just a fan of anything grim reaper-looking in general. That said, this model was infuriating to finish as the shoulder half-cloak part of this model does not go place very easily, if you paint models in pieces like I do. Kudos to anyone else who has tried this; it takes some effort. Anyway, more pics after the jump.
