Dungeon Architecture.

Spent some time earlier today prepping these ready for moulding:

There are also a set of conventional steps in the pipeline along with two more doorways, these are a little more elaborate than the basic models shown above.
Once the moulds for these are done I will be able to start assembling the boxed sets ready for sale, then its a case of setting up the retail end of the operation which I suspect might be the biggest challenge yet.

Ral Partha Gnoll Leader.

Picked up the brush again last night for a change of pace after several weeks of painting historical stuff, this is a Gnoll Leader from Ral Partha's 1990 AD&D 2nd Edition range:

Another enjoyable miniature to paint with plenty of nicely sculpted detail, the pose is a little wooden but he is after all a one piece casting. No idea what the cutlass/club hand weapon is supposed to be; don't seem to remember any Gnoll ethnic weapons from back in the day except for the Flindbar from Fiend Folio, but that was more like a nunchak if memory serves.
