Sculpting Call Of Cthulhu investigator

I've been waiting for a while for an inspiration to sculpt something now that I have beesputty, as it should be a lot better than oven hardening Fimo.
After surfing the net for Call of Cthulhu investigator characters,  it became painfully obvious that Alienists (psychologists) do not exist.

I could not resist the tempation to find a good recipe for painting white, so I took one winter war miniature and painted it yesterday. I'm trying to find a speedy method of painting white as there are lot of it in these guys.

SAGA megabattle

Today we played the Battle of Brunaburgh with SAGA rules. Each of the 4 players commanded 18 points worth of troops. It was Norse-Gael with Scots against Saxons.

Mass basecoating

 I have previously used bluetact to attach figures to base before basecoating. It doesn't hold very well, and requires some (not much, but still) work to get all in place.
Well, not anymore :) I bought two-sided tape from Sinelli that is like made for the job.

Finishing touches on dark elves

I started my old hobby, american football again after 4 years of break. This means besides football practises, also increase of supporting training to help me keep up with my young teammates :)
Ahem, seems that the standard bearer is missing..
So that boils down to less time painting and modelling :( To make the most of my limited time, I made a list of things that need to be done with my WHFB dark elves, and started to go through it. My dark elf army has been painted in bursts so I could have used it in few tournaments. So there have been incomplete painting, missing shields etc.
My goal now is to get all incomplete units done, and then start painting something new for them.

New hobby products

Scale 75 paint sets

I have managed to buy some new stuff in past few weeks that I haven't tried out before, so I thought I'd write a short reviews about each.
