After a week of getting no painting done due to an emergency of sorts, I've finally returned to the painting chair to crank out the last element needed for a 15mm HoTT Pirate army that I will donate to the EWG auction at MayDay.

This is a water lurker (or possibly a beast?) that is designed to scare the poop out of enemy elements.

The actual figure is a cheap plastic shark. I have pictured it with a 15mm shooter element from the pirate army below to give you a sense of scale. The base is 40mm wide and maybe 70mm deep.

Up next: The remainder of my 28mm viking army is well underway and I may finish it this weekend or early next week. Tuesday is club night. And I am also working on an Empire army, of sorts, for my daughter who is keen on gaming suddenly. Must be all of those wins at Battlelore!

Ha! That's terrific!

Thanks! It was a fun mini to add to a fun army. The camp is a treasure chest burial expedition, including a dead lackey!

Looks awesome, Bob. That totally made my day.

Definitely a water lurker! Imagine your opponents surprise when THAT springs out of a river they're trying to cross!!

Thanks Tim. Yes, almost too big to fit on the board, though! I was hoping to find a crocodile so it could be either and water or land lurker but no luck. Best I could do is a big-ass turtle so I decided the shark would have to suffice.
