And here are some of my Chronopia figures, I can't decide which to work on first though, my Elves of the House of the Howling Moon, or the Stygian of the Fallen Land.

Thanks, so which army do you think shows the most promise color wise, the Elves, or the Stygian, I am about an equal way through both, but the Elves I need to strip my old ones, the stygies, I have some primered and ready.

You're stripping those!!  I think that's great work as is.  I'm going to have a look see in that gallery of yours for some ideas.

The undersea stuff is just wild-what game do you use those for (if any)?
VeezCon products:  Not as good as if they had been actually produced by a real figure company, but better than using your shoe to proxy with...sort of!

I was planning one of two things for the undersea stuff, either write my own small skirmish game (3-4 figures per player) or else do a short RPG campaign.

And no Josh, I am not stripping the Purple elves, but I have elves painted in three other house colors that I need to strip as each has like 3 coats of paint+varnish on them, so they all need stripped to bare metal to make the most out of the new colors.  I'll try to get more pictures of the figures in a couple days.  I am going to have figures from each house painted all the same so I can switch houses without hassle.

Here are the rules I was working on for the Sea Elves.  I was going to call the game Ocean's Deep.

Woohoo, I got a new camera.
I also have a new wind that is making me want to paint some more, so I plan on digging out my elves and starting work on them some more.

Here are some retakes.  I'll try and get a complete set of my elves soon.

Check first post for all the newest pics.

Alright, I added the Howling Moon Swordsmen unit (They still need based and I need to get shield decals for them), some Jaguar Archers from 100 Kingdoms (Maybe Swampy or SoK Proxies?), and an Orc Greatswordsman.

Also, who are the dwarves I have posted?

Finally, who would like to take a stab at helping me design shield decals?  I am not a very good graphics artist and my attempts have all resulted as a pixelated mess, I'd like to stick with the icons I had posted in the Elves of the Howling Moon thread.  They can be simplified if need be.  They just need to fit on the swordsmen style shield.

Added the Militia, I imagine either Axemen or Archers are next depending on which set gets done stripping first.  I must say though, this has been far harder than everyone makes it out to be, stripping minis is a bear, some have been soaking in PineSol for almost 5 days and still are having the paint stuck, I take them out to brush them every dy or two as well.

Well currently (and I mean as I type this) I am working on a home for a family that fit's the theme.  It is based on the following terrain piece, though mine will not turn out nearly as well, it should still be pretty decent.

http://www.terragenesis.co.uk/infopages/page414.html

I also plan to pick up some new hirst molds to complete the armies terrain.

Anyways, thanks, I would like to churn out all of my elves in this theme, with units in all 3 army types.  Then I'll be able to play whatever house I choose with the same figures.

Here is a rough estimate of what I own.

3x Lotus Eaters
1x Swordsmen
3x Spearmen
3 or 4x Axemen
2x Archers
1x Militia
1x Dream Warriors
1x Lotus Guard (In the mail)
2x Dragonbane Scouts
3x Flying Dragonbane (I dunno why I have that many)
3x Crystal Knights
2x Adamantite Golems (Use as Ice Golems or Adamantite depending on who I play)
1x Obsidian Guard
1x Helios Female Unit (Can't recall the name)

So, I have a LONG ways to go.

Thats a nice unit to play with. Lots of options and causes your opponent to be hesitant especially if you have dream warriors with a blue lotus eater and sky chariot.
Shoot First and ask questions later.

I don't think I ever lost with my Crystal Lotus actually.

They are super flexible.  Watching your opponent think he is gonna own you with some great spellcaster hanging back, then dropping a unit of Axemen within charging distance is always great fun.
