For the minipainting -alongs

Besides the Reaper Challenge League, the minipainting discord runs themed paintalongs for points. This month I joined the Squigalong, Dwarfalong and Lizardalong. You can guess what was to be painted for each.
These paintalongs are rather informal and much like the RCL they are participation things, not competitons.
I use them as a much needed kick in the backside to get some older minis painted, or else there is a distinct possibility that I only paint Reaper minis these days since the Bones 5 recently delivered.


This is the lower part of a Warhammer Mangler Squigs set, made in finecast. I bought this second hand ages ago, without the top parts. I had thought of mounting some sort of hero on it, but actually there are two night goblins on it, so it should work fine for a warboss mount or something similar anyway.

This is one of the miniatures from the three-mini pack 9010 “Dwarf Champions”, released at the end of 1990s.
This is one of the salvaged minis from the piles of lead rot I wrote about a few weeks ago.

Harlequin Miniatures, ca 1999

lead metal, 25mm base


Some more minis salvaged from the Lead Rot. These are Harlequin Miniatures Greater Lizardmen ca 1997. The larger raptor originally had a rider, but that model succumbed to the rot and has been discarded. The raptor is excellent on it’s own though.

7007 Handler and Snappers (2 out of three models from a pack present -I have painted several loose snappers earlier, so it’s around the house somewhere.)
7097A Greater Lizardman Cavalry I sans the rider.
