Just Because

Things have tapered off for me now that my family is back.  Demands of family life and work.... you know the whole story.  However, I've kept some side projects going nonetheless.  I've got a collection of Reaper miniatures that I bought years ago "just because."  Sometimes it's good to paint things for no other purpose than to enjoy the process.  I do have ulterior motives, however.  I'm planning on using these models for my Song of Blades and Heroes war bands.

Here is Reaper's Darkrasp model from the Dark Heavens Legends line.  I got him a long time ago because I thought he looked cool.  Despite the happy green lawn surrounding him, I think he came out looking evil enough.

Next is another Reaper model, Aysa, from the Warlords line.
I got this model when I got the Darkrasp model.  At the time I was thinking she'd make a good Banshee for a WHFB Vampire Counts army.  Though my WHFB dreams are dead, Aysa can still rise from her grave to fill a spot in my undead SBH war band.

This is all for now.  I've painted several more figures, but haven't photographed those yet.  Also on the bench are several terrain pieces.  I've got to get my new game table more terrain than a few trees and a hill.  Before long, I should have some updates regarding those terrain pieces.  Stay tuned.

Looking good! Sometimes I just pull some cool figures out to paint. It is the best way I have found to fix 'painter's block'. Just paint because you like it.

Nice. I like the blend of colours on the banshee.

Thanks to guys! I've been enjoying painting just for the sake of it. But it's time for me to return to the numerous projects I've got lined up.
