I got some more of my birthday box finished as well as another monster that's been waiting around for a month or two. I'm currently waiting for some mdf Egyptian chariots to arrive. I have plans for them and I'm keen to get started but, alas, the Australian Post are letting me down yet again (10 day wait so far on something that usually takes 3 days).
Anyway, during these past couple of days I've painted up some flyers and a burrowing D&D beast.
"The Eagles are coming. The Eagles are coming..." Hopefully, when one of my little figures cries this out aloud on the wargames table it'll mean that I'm going to win ( after all, it always happens in Tolkien!). These figures are from WizKids. I've seen better eagles but the other figures currently available are way beyond my ability to justify paying for them. These came in at $10 each and they're okay for that price.
Their bases come with a little clear plastic thing that fits up their bum holes. I had some aluminium tubing that worked better and got them off the ground. So I gave them a drill up their bottoms and shoved the tubes up their clackers. They came out okay.
