Managed to do more painting today. The assassin is by North Star. I was aiming for a lighter palette, rather than a ninja. I think I need to go back in and highlight more.
The knight is mainly fireforge, templar body, cloak, and scandi infantry head. The arms are from the Oathmark elves set though.
They are just based on 25mm washers and will add some texture, foam rocks, and snow effects to both bases once grey base coat has dried. It takes ages to get a consistent coat on the washers and that and the hole in the middle are the only downsides to using them.
I was asked to create a chess set using fantasy figs, and here are some of the figs I used from Reaper. It was fun but 32 figures is a lot of work! Let me know what you think.
Used 60022: Karzoug, Runelord of Greed , 02582: Queen of High Elves, 02525: Murkillor, Wraith King , 60075: King Castruccio Irovetti , 89013: Ezren, Iconic Wizard, 77496: Eilluvasheth, Succubus Queen

This past week, I painted Kassandra of the Blade from the Bones 3 Core Set. A couple weeks ago, I found myself painting up a Disney Monopoly Snow White figure to command a unit of Dwarf Miners (Long story you can read about here: Princess Snow), and I was really struck by the simple but effective primary color scheme of Snow White's outfit. I immediately decided I wanted to paint a Bones female fighter figure with the same palette.
So, I pawed through my boxes of unpainted Bones, and fell upon Kassandra of the Blade as the most suitable of what I had. The one thing I didn't like about her was the dual-wielding of swords. So I decided to chop off her left hand and replace it before I started painting her.
Then came the decision of what to replace it with. I considered a shield for a while, then in looking through my box of Bones transplant donors I came across Sarah the Seeress, whose staff had gone to make my Highland Heroine into a Frostgrave Appentice, leaving her with just her left hand holding an orb of some sort. At first I thought, no, why would Snow White be holding a crystal ball; but then it hit me: paint it like an apple. So it was an easy matter to cut off Kssandra's left hand at the wrist and glue on Sarah's hand with the orb.
And here's the final result. I'm really happy with how it turned out, and probably it's one of the best faces I've done to date.

Has anyone seen a little girl wearing a red hood and carrying a picnic basket? Asking for a friend!
Here is my version of the Bones werewolf. He is a very beefy guy and was fun to paint. Since I was painting all of my wolfish figures, I tried to give them a mix of colors. This guy got the same fur treatment that I did on my warg. I need a few more "normal" wolves for my pack and will probably do at least one white. For now, I have finished all of the ones that I own. I had a good time painting them but am ready to paint something that doesn't have fur!
