Awhile ago I made a list of all my current projects that I'd like to finish and I've slowly been working my way through them. After "finishing" my Big Terrain Project I figured it'd be a nice change of pace to return to actual miniatures. Picking the right project proved very easy this time however, it was time to start my Ghost Archipelago project.
When I first planned this project my wife and I had just started a Ghost Archipelago campaign. That campaign never made it past the first game but as I recently started a Rangers of Shadow Deep campaign this seemed like the perfect project. You didn't misread the title, but the two games have an overlap in their respective bestiaries (not surprising as they're written by the same person) so this project could really help me eliminate some of the proxies I've been using.
Right off the bat I went through everything I had and pulled anything that could be of use in RoSD. This consisted of giant spiders, bats, ghouls, a "wolf", a vulture, and some bats. Then it was just the simple matter of prioritizing the creatures that are coming up in the campaign. So first up were the bats with the ghouls in a close second.
One session of painting actually got them pretty far.
Since I still had paint I hit the vulture and ghoul's tombstones too.
My second session would have finished the bats had I not spent some time prepping for the next game instead.
Again since I had leftover paint on my palette the ghoul's bases got some more attention too.

As a beginner painter, the concept of doing an army (or even just an army unit) feels both logical and like way too much work. Nevertheless, here it is, my first army unit! Read more about the process (and see a few more photos) over at Pocket-Sized Adventurers.
Comments and thoughts are of course welcome!
I painted this one up for a player who is running a 16yr old knife throwing poisoner. I did a minor conversion on the hand to switch her to a knife thrower - and I lost the hand I cut off! So the primitive sculpting came about! I painted up the scrolls as bottles for her posions - first attempt at glass bottles. She was fun and good enough for table top. The player likes her, so I'm happy.
Photographer Matthew Myatt was taking aerial photographs at Greenham Common, Berkshire, a former RAF airbase, to be used as publicity for a flying school.
Once he returned home and was checking his photographs, he was stunned to recognize a full-size half-Millennium Falcon and an X-wing fighter in one of the shots.
Who knew they still built these?
For the last couple of months I've been painting more seriously and using subdued palettes. Which is all good and well as I feel I am growing as a painter. But every now and again I think it's a good idea to paint just for the joy of it. I did use a limited palette, unfortunately I limited that palette to a bright glowy green.
So in that spirit I painted up this 18mm bot from Counterblast sculpted by Patrick Keith and a flying saucer from Hydra sculpted by Steve Meli.
Hope this gave you all a bit of a laugh as life is far too serious and we're all gonna die someday.
Thank you for looking.
