To paint three miniatures:

Three female miniatures on Jewelfox's desk, from left to right: A human wizard in green and grey casting a spell out of a book, a human wizard in blue holding a book and a staff, and an elf soldier in green and silver carrying a lit torch. The magic effects and the torch's fire are done in translucent plastic.

But that's partly because we're perfectionist. They say to remember that you're painting an army (or other group) and not a model, and that's useful for when you've got one of those blocks of twenty identical models from Warhammer. But this is for Frostgrave, where you're playing a single wizard and up to nine assistants. So each model counts a bit more.

... also I haven't done painting in awhile, and I take frequent breaks.

Anyway, it's about one model per evening, and I watch [tumblr.com profile] alias-pseudonym play Elder Scrolls Legends or something while painting. The ones on the left and right are going to be a Sigilist (book wizard) and her hired captain, while the one in the middle is going to be a rival mage whose captain I still need to paint.

Also in the works: An all-furry warband, thanks to a miniatures line that I Kickstarted.

Did I mention I like Frostgrave? >_>; It's not as cute as Endless Fantasy Tactics, but it's a very fun pick-up-and-play kind of skirmish game. I feel like it works better than D&D at what D&D itself does, because everyone plays a wizard (thus eliminating power discrepancies between "martials" and "casters") and you're fighting each other to get magic stuff from a ruined city, not murdering people with different skin colours in order to steal all their loot.

Beautiful! I think those were hours well invested.
