|This looked like Jack the Ripper, but he only had a tiny knife and his head was on backwards (?). A couple of quick conversions and here we are.|

So these figures will be joining some others that I was painting for Geoff anyway:
|Can you see who that is over there?|
|It's just Jamal looking grumpy as usual.|
|'So where is this giant snake you said was out here Mr Jack?'|

|Google 'Swami' and what you get is lots of orange. They call it saffron, but it's orange.|
|'I say, have you seen any elephants around here old chap?'|
|'Steady on old chap, I've got the beggar right in my sights!'|
I've altered my style a tad recently in light of the tips that I've got from the 'Painting Wargames Figures' book, and am now leaving black lines to break up colours. Is it noticeable? Do people prefer the more recent figures or the older style, or quite probably - haven't noticed a difference?

|Why I shouldn't be allowed to try DIY on my house.|
It's one of the card buildings out of the third Warhammer Fantasy Battles boxed set, but I've strengthened it with polyfilla and a base. I'm pretty sure the top part at the front is missing, but it was well lost somewhere. Should make a good piece of terrain for some LotR gaming, or even Lion/Dragon Rampant.
