I was able to use the last couple of days to dispose of one such project, namely the Sons of Death, or Gall-Gaedhil, SAGA's Norse Gael swords for hire. Those of you who've read my previous posts will be aware of my painting speed, so the fact that I started these eight figures six weeks ago and am only just getting around to finishing them now will surprise nobody.
So here they are, all painted, and based with the seashore theme I tried out back in November.
I decided that while most of the Gall-Gaedhil are bare-legged like their Scots cousins, I'd make their clothing a bit more Norse-influenced and go for plain colours with decorative borders. Besides, six points of SAGA Scots is enough tartan to last me a while yet!
Firstly, one of the chaps Monty of the excellent Twin Cities Gamer blog described as 'chrome domes' when discussing his own (IMHO brilliant) completed Sons of Death; in homage to this reference therefore, here is Crom MacDòmhnall (thank you, ladies and germs, I'm here all week).

We'll just keep going with the pics and avoid any more godawful puns. Well, for a bit at least. All shield transfer designs by Little Big Men Studios - as usual - love their work!
Another great thing about holidays is that you get a chance to visit your mates, get a game in, and get a bloody good dinner into the bargain; for that was Monday's program at Chez Millsy. We played an excellent game of WHFB, which will no doubt be the subject of an AAR should either of us get the chance to write one up, but here's a taste;

Turns out that Mr Mills is quite the chef too; in the evening, my Good Lady Wife and I were treated to a brilliant chicken, chorizo and potato bake, accompanied by a delicious (and extremely potent) home-made sangria. Result!
Thanks again to Michael and family for their hospitality!
That's all for now, but go over and check out the Analogue Painting Challenge as the competition heats up; will Millsy regain his position at the top of the table?
