It's been a busy couple of weeks, conference travel, kids birthday parties, etc... but I have completed some characters for my Vampire Counts army. These are all GW. First we have the Wight battle standard bearer (love this model), a necromancer, and two Lahmian vampires (love these models too!)
I painted one of the girls to look like daughter number 2 (blond hair, fond of snakes):
And the other to look like daughter number 1 (brown hair, loves kitties):
There is also a unit of cairn wraiths with banshee (looks a bit like the missus on an angry day..)
And finally, picked up a bunch of goodies at a local swap meet on the weekend, these are some chaos war hounds that were in rough shape when I bought them, but I spruced up their paint jobs and based them to use as dire wolves:
In other news, daughter number 2 turned 6 and we had a birthday party at Edmonton's historical Rutherford house:
And very sadly, we had to say goodbye to our lovely cat Sophie at 11 years of age. She has been slowly going downhill for the last few months and I had to have her put down right after the birthday party on Saturday. She likely had cancer. It broke my heart, she was a lovely little girl, always spunky and good natured. I don't think Sophie ever caused any trouble (e.g. messes, furniture destruction, etc...) although she was very fond of begonias and spider plants for snacks. Funny little kitty. I've been crying all weekend.
Sophie, rest in peace, we will miss you dearly. I'm so sorry.
