[Song of Fork and Heroes]
Mythical Agyptian Demons

Some more mystical elements. These are demons that will be summoned by the priest during a game. They are from Crocodiles Games' Wargods of Ægyptus Nekharu range. As usual, they are mounted on bases from Products for Wargamers.

The figures are nice, but the amount flash is a bit excessive, and sometimes hard to get at. One figure had a big lump of metal between knee and skirt, so the molds seem to have seen better times as well...

I wanted to come much farther today, applying at least the base colours, but the beginnings of a flu requested me to spend too much time sleeping...

The good thing is, the doctor sent me on sick leave for the whole weak.

The bad thing is, all the sleeping and "suffering" (my wife's words) take away so much time and leave not that much for painting. But giving the models a quick spray with black was doable.

The demons are done. My first comment still stands, they are aweful concerning flash and mold lines. While painting I removed some more that I was not able to see before. But the minis totally make up for that with an also incredible amount of detail! Thinking of painting a unit of 20 or so of them would be really daunting... Painting 4 I really enjoyed :-)
