More trolls stampede through a hamlet. Another batch of underbridge dwellers to go with the previous ones I painted. This lot were done with washes rather than hightlighting which is much quicker. A mix of Citadel Fantasy Tribes and some great Asgard sculpts by Nick Bibby (his trolls are scaly which is good).

Below they muster with the older paint jobs.

Having finished a few undead units, I thought I would move on to some aerial bods. Ral Partha Imps, looking suspiciously like the flying monkeys in The Wizard of Oz film (how they used to scare me).

The leader is Ral Partha demon

In the M R James story "Two Doctors" reference is made to "the affair of the bedstaff", which is left unexplained to the reader (in cunning Jamesian style). A bedstaff seems to have been a wooden pin for securing the bed linen in times of yore, to stop the sheets slipping off.

These bedclothes seem to have acquired a life all of their own, as well as some gardening implements. More lovely Ral Partha figures from 1977, this is one of my favourites, later copied by Citadel in their Fiend Factory range. I decided to stick to the traditional sheeted phantom colour scheme.

I love the way the cloth hangs down over the face, and the hands (or whatever things worse than hands) are covered, so you are not sure if there is anything or not under there.

Just toot and come in. Here we have some well wrapped warriors from 1977 by Ral Partha. The faceless pose is the standard Mummy figure from the Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night range, but the chap with his face showing I think must be from some boxed sets Ral Partha released in the late 70's, if I remember correctly each box was a little game in itself. I must look them up in White Dwarf when I get a chance.

Very easy paint job....just coat d'arms linen washed with Agrax Earthshade......
