A start made on the 3 wicker defense works - look like they will take a long time to make.

You could be a basket case by the time they're done.

To make you all laugh ( I think some of us need a change of topic ) 
As I was doing the weaving used drops of superglue to hold the wire in place - had run out of thick glue so used thin - all OK.  Never thought that some of the glue would run down the inside of the wire and fasten it to the wood base, its now good and fast so will have to cut/drill/hack the wood from the wicker basket when finished.
REMINDER TO SELF MUST GET SOME THICK SUPERGLUE

Next problem "she who must be obeyed" thinks it look lovely the colours that it is. Have explained that at the battle of Maastricht in 1673 it would be all brown as it is made from tree branches.
She still likes the colours, so now I will have to make a different model with this type of wicker in, to stay on the good side - the things we do !!!!  Any ideas for this new model ??????

Day out in Brid and called into Mighty Lancer - decided that this Reaper "Yeti Chieftain should come home and join the "Great Xanthine Wars" of the year 3627 alongside the Zaciphant.   
Zak has had one named after him so this one will be called a "Neiligrunt" -- now what colour are Neil's eyes - hohoho
Nice simple paint job with NO messing about converting and making the background, he will be like the Zaciphant  just stood on a rock.
Now only Tony,Bill,Bob,Andy and Kevin to do

Base removed and hole drilled for a pin. Face looks like Neil so no changes to make , cleaning up the  seam and noticed that the head and arm need some filler were they have been fasten to the body. Also the skull on the right arm has a strap on the front but nothing on the side or back so out with the thin strapping.

First coat of Brown Rose on the head and hands and Dark Seagreen on the fur. 
Also found that the strap for the skull on the right arm has been added to the figure at the back and then some hair flopped over most of it - so I was wrong ( yes Zak as usual, before you say it ) so don't have to add this.

It is starting to look like Neil - but the camera never lies so its back to the paint job for the right eye
