Stirges fall into the 'uhg, flying base... I will do that later' category, so these little blood sucking bastards have been loitering for a long time in my collection. I had planned to use clear plastic rod, but the holes where just too small to make a strong connection. I opted for blackwires, not because I like them, but because I wanted it done. The skulls are a spare from The Skullchucker kit.
I used the colours from the AD&D 2nd ed monster manual from the time.
The photo is bad, the paintjob unfinished, but it charts my progress. I want to do a second pass on these to add more contrast and highlights to the wing ribs. The bases will get shrooms too. Possibly baby shrieker mushrooms.
Last night I based and primed my entire Skaven horde, my remaining Talisman figures, and every last citadel AD&D minis bar the carrion crawler, which I need to find a nice base for before I glue it together. All in all, a pretty good session.
Long way to go but it's gonna be a fun ride.
