Sharke's Quarry and Some Other Distractions


December 11th marked the debut of this year's Fellowship of the Thing scenario as part of the Orcs in the Webbe Advent Calendar.

Sharke's Quarry finds the half elf Rifleorc in pursuit of a band of mutineers who have made off with Serjeants Balifine and McChutney. Can they be saved and what of the mysterious Rohziri tribe?

As always thanks to Craig Andrews for gathering 24 (this year 25!) articles to help while away the days leading up to Christmas.

With Advent writing out of the way I have returned to painting projects.

First up, the Ogre Grenadiers for Von Bark and Von Mops needed attention.

The grenadiers needed green facings and...

...Tand trews.

At the same time I decided to reverse the jackets..

...And facings of the musicians.

Also found the time to devote attention to the Tippooh.

A sparkling gem adorns his turban...

...As does a peacock feather.

Maybe not my best work...

...But it will do.

Now I need to get cracking on the Heffalumps but that might wait until after Christmas.

Hope you enjoyed the post and thanks for stopping by!


  1. That's great fun. Good to see you're ticking along.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. "Ticking" is an apt phrase for it too!

  2. Enjoyed the post? I LOVED it! Impressive and beautiful Ogre grenadiers, and Tippooh is soooooooooooooooooooo cute!

    1. Merci! I resisted the urge to fix the paint on Pooh Bear. I think the imperfections of a much loved toy suit him :)
