I've recently been focussed on working on Twilight. Over on the Forum of Doom, Sally (the very lovely Matriarch of the Hasslefree family) has been hinting at a new range that they are going to sell, and has now mentioned my name a couple of times... I guess it is safe to admit that Twilight has now found a home, and the range will be released next year, hopefully in time for Salute at the end of March.
I've not quite figured out what information I'm going to be giving out when, but I will start showing off finished sculpts in the near future - I've finished the Baruk and the Derakeer, along with some Fubarnii Militia (the spear guy) and a few other figures that I've thus far kept to myself!
Watch this space... hopefully I'll be back in slightly less than 9 months this time!

These lovely models really inspired me to try and improve on my painting, and now tend to be included in most armies I field...
Having painted the Bloodtrackers, I felt compulsed to revamp my rather poorly painted Ravagers. I've painted a full unit of six, but for some reason only included three in this photo...
These are my most recent unit, and it was quite a challenge to offset the darkness of all those black robes.
Warlocks: Morvhanna and Kaya:
I do of course need a couple of Warlocks to lead my troops. I'm still working on Kromac, but these two girls are almost there. Morvhanna does admittedly need a bit more work to finally finish her.
This is admittedly nothing to do with Circle, but I painted this guy a few months ago, and have finally got around to taking a photo...
The Travelling Court of the Brownie King:
On the sculpting front I put a lot of work into my entry for the Frothers 2007 sculpting competition. My entry got an honourable mention, which I'm proud of, especially given the general quality of the other entries. I'm currently hopeful that he'll be getting produced some time in the not-too-distant future.
Twilight: Fubarnii Derakeer
As for Twilight, progress has been sporadic. I've done a bit of work on the priest and a spearman, but did start a new character: Derakeer.
A Derak is a simple 'gun' carried by the Engineers who build them. The sculpt is far from finished and needs a lot of detailing, but I think he's coming along well so far. Sadly there is a little bit of scale creep with this guy, so he is obviously a slightly larger breed than his compatriots...
That'll do for the moment, although I did take a few photos of my painted Warmachine Khador and Hordes Circle units that might do for another post...

However, last week I abandoned my half-painted wolf riders in order to do some more work on my pack-beast. After sculpting lots of bags on his back, I decided the poor fella needed a name. Baruk sounded about right.
So, here he is - a heavily laden Fubarnii Baruk pack-beast. I still need to neaten up some bits, but I'm kinda pleased with how he's turned out.

Fubarnii beast of burden:
I've done lots of sketches of different beasts for Twilight, and I figured it would be fun to sculpt one as something to defend in the game.
Random Twilight Critter
I sculpted this guy ages ago. He was originally intended as a mount for priests. Not sure if it will be now, but I still like him.
