I have on my desk, the dozen+ figures referred to in the headline. The only thing I still need to paint is the kilts & hats, and after that...
I will be finished!
Yup! Almost 2 years after receiving Battlelore as a Christmas gift, I will have painted up the base game plus every single expansion to have come out in the meantime... That´s almost 400 figures!
I won´t be the first to have accomplished this, but I´ll still be very satisfied and happy about it!
Pictures WILL be posted!

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Same here. As someone who is contemplating beginning to paint their Battlelore, I know this is no small feat. Looking forward to pics.

Congratulations on finishing. I know it makes the game more enticing to play with painted figures, even if just a little bit.

Saved the hardest till last, eh?

I commend you for your patience and discipline, and hope that the hours of enjoyment that those figures give you even exceed the hours you spent painting them! Congratulations!

Thanks everybody!
I´ve already had loads of fun playing Battlelore! And unlike Warhammer 40K, the painting/playing ratio weighs in most heavily on the playing side...
Luckily it´s one of my girlfriend´s favourites, so it gets a lot of tabletime around here...

Jim, how did I know that you'd be along here shortly with a photograph or two and plenty of thumbs for all? laugh You definitely deserve kudos as well, for all of your hard work!

Congratulations on your accomplishment!

I'm nearly 1/2 done w/ my base game, but I haven't even touched the expansion packs yet.

Unfortunately, I haven't had the pleasure to play nearly as much as I'd like to...ah well, at least I can admire the pretty pieces.

Oddly enough at the moment I'm painting my War of the Ring minis rather than my Battlelore ones - even though I play Battlelore much more often. Perhaps I'm just worried about them getting destroyed ... by my four-year old son...
