Having just finished work on the shearl, I am moving onto modelling Drust so that I have a Lord level melee character who can then be boosted by the magic of the Meargh and Dirachs to dish out some serious pounding. However, I will only be spending time on him until the modelling is complete. The next painting project will be the Fir Bolg.

There are a couple of other units that I might look into at some point, but this is the army that I was originally intending to build, and it's nice to see how far I have come along. It might be slow going, but my Dwarves and Black Templars have also had reinforcements over the year or so of this project. I've only played a couple of games with the fimir, but might have another Triumph and Treachery game coming up soon - I'll try to get a few photos and do a bit of a battle report as I know that is something that I have been asked about.

Well, until then - watch out because The Blade in the Mist gathers!
