Empire of the Dead Lycaon's part 1

Spurred on by the need to clear some of the miniatures that i've started i've managed to get my Lycaon faction finished for Empire of the dead. I finished the Wolves ages ago but kinda stalled with the Wolfskins.

Any after a few sessions this week I managed to get them all finished. Work is still on going with the Beastlord and Pack Master, but they are also nearly finished.  Hoping to have them done by the weekend.


Annoyingly I dropped him whilst attempting to photograph him resulting in a bent wolf claw and having to repaint it again after straightening them!







The Wolves I did middle of last year shows how long they've sat on my painting table lol.

  5. Ah, I've damaged miniatures whilst photographing them before, so I sympathise! It's one thing to have normal wear-and-tear whilst playing with the toys, but breaking them whilst taking pictures is not pleasant.

  7. I like them, Simon. I have to agree with Mathyoo - a batrep would be nice. Time permitting, of course.

  15. Nice work Simon. This is a faction I want to add to my collection, as I have always had a fascination with werewolves - after watching Ollie Reed in 'Curse of the werewolf', at too young an age! Had to sleep with the light on that night ! ;-)

  19. Haha that's kind of ironic. I'm working on the same models right now. I finished the wolves first too and have been trouble getting round to the rest if the figures.
    Nice paint colour choices.
