The cold one looks insanely good, though the foot stands look out of place on those particular bases.

I agree. Any ideas as to how to fix it? I had thought about some greenery or rubble. Also maybe I could remove them and put a pin through the foot into the base? Or even just paint them like the base? Ideas?

That's the idea! I want it to definitely be an Empire army, but one that has been in Lustrian a while. Most of the horses are gone, supplies are low, men are dead, and the jungle is tough. I'm painting up my state troops in a variety of state colors to reflect the rag-tag nature of the men. Feathers are tropical, beasts of burden are exotic, and weapons are scavenged. But there is gold... So much gold. And what more do men desire than adventure, glory, comraderie, and riches?

So a few things happened today...

First, I got a box from Ocean. It was magical. After some repairs and girly squeels, I decided not to take the pictures these models wanted, but the pictures these models deserved. So, I built a lightbox! And I got out the good camera! And with some help from my lovely wife I managed to get the settings just about right. So, prepare yourself. This one is big. I give you...

So this is my current project: Expedition Simple Green.

Im turning over 100 minis from this:

Into this:

Image

For anyone interested, all of these are for sale. I've got soooooooooo many minis to work on. I've got metal, plastic, finecast, and resin. Skaven, Orks, Orcs, Marines, Chaos, on and on. All cleaned to the exacting standards of a man with a neurological disorder!

Side note, if you are interested in getting your minis cleaned to a very good standard send me a PM and we can work something out.
