And double duty for Angel’s demon

 Not much more to say, in the interest of budget, going to use my Blood On Satans Claw demon for the demon in Silver Bayonet until I get a new job and find something as suitable.

A rescue werewolf

 So, when I started this Silver Bayonet project, I severely miscalculated how many figures of some types I’d need (see Troll for the hilarity of that). Anyway, when I ordered the three werewolves I wanted, I was sent some misprints and poorly cured figures. These were replaced by the Etsy seller, but sat in a ziplock waiting for I didn’t know what. It turns out of course I needed four werewolves, but rather than order a fourth, I dug out the dodgy prints, picked a decent top and bottom and got cutting and gluing. Some greenstuff britches hide the join, although his tail is a bit manky, but he’ll do for the rare occasion that all four are needed.

A living scarecrow

A living scarecrow for the Silver Bayonet, Mr Mangle from Crooked Dice. Both much to say really, I wanted a sackcloth look to bulk of it, and think I’ve managed to differentiate the straw stuffing just enough. I did the tied knot at the leg as a red ribbon just to add a bit of colour.


So I originally liked this model for my hobgoblins, as shown in earlier posts. But only ordered one before I realised I needed two. Ordering his twin led to some errors on my part and these were left to sit in the lead pile, which is more plastic and resin these days.

Anyhoo… as I’m trying to get my Silver Bayonet bestiary filled out, these larger versions have been shifted up to get some paint to see action as trolls. The club on the second one didn’t look right at that scale, so I converted it to an uprooted tree that works well at that scale with my actual scenery trees.

Mistakes were made in the ordering…
