War of the Roses

Just when you thought there were no more angry elves to be found... one more appears!

This guy had been hiding away in a batch of partially painted miniatures which had probably been packed away 3 years ago.  I decided to throw a little more freehand on the cloak this time, so that he could be a leader of the Archers.

I could not resist using some of the brand new Gamers Grass tufts!  It seemed very appropriate!

He's also here:

Around the Horn

Every team needs a flag, and the Samurai Orcs certainly do as well!

It was a challenge to work the dragon onto this banner, due to all the overlapping folds.  The orientation of the dragon itself also complicated matters, as all of my references had it pointing in different directions.

I suppose I could have taken a few designs into photoshop and reoriented them, but the hour was excessively late, and The Bulldogs were not faring well in their first place match up in Sydney.  Bummer!

In the end however, I was able to conquer that issue, and the coaching staff is more complete!
