Previously in Journey to the Realm of the Acolytes we met Test Figure
Then we were introduced to the Fabulous 4
And now... you've skipped ahead haven't you? You're down looking at the pictures to see if I finally pulled the cat out of the bag and finished the squad of 20... no foul as frankly that's what I was about to do! :-)
So now that you're back with the text you'll have seen that this week we get to meet the FULL squad. Yes I've actually gone and done it! Hurrah. With multiple hurrahs thrown in for good measure. And a sigh of relief to be honest.

In this case the weapons have a Pink base paint followed by a purple wash a good solid dry brush with a colour called Tyrant skull and then a nice dollop of purple wash at the end.

The bird is a cross between a parrot and a vulture. I have 2 of them on the painting table and they'll be finished before the Challenge ends. One normally sits on this chaps arm but I don't like how that then blocks him from view - so I'm going to mount them on their own bases... which is still in the planning stages... alongside the other 463 projects...

And I shall look forward to seeing the separately based birds you mention in around 2020 if you're anything like me with your list of "projects to be finished as soon as possible"!
