The models have been painted with metal colour and then faces painted with dwarf flesh then a face wash applied.  The bases coloured with codex grey and dark brown.  Next a dark tone strong wash applied to the base.  Spear shafts painted black.

They were quite tricky to put together but hopefully will be worth it.

Mike, Alex, Phil and Darryl played some SHORTER Christmas games.  First up was Nations the dice game.  Mike won but it was actually closer than expected with Darryl just behind and Phil just behind him.  After all that it came down to just one VP.  

Next up was a few rounds of Deception.  Again Mike proved the only murderer to get away through clever unexpected use of Hotel cutlery.

Finally we played a couple of games of Lord of the Rings journey to Mordor the dice game.  Phil won the advanced game with just one half of a Nazgul free Mordor box remaining.  

Lots of fun and Happy Christmas to all.
