First, I finished the final details on an old Ral Partha wizard figure. I got a pair of these to compete in a figure painting competition that never happened last summer. I dug him up a couple weeks ago and started painting on him here and there before work. I painted his robes, cloak, and hat in a very light grey. The staff was painted black and striped with light grey paint to give the appearance of wood grain. Then I glazed it with some old Citadel Chestnut ink. The ball on top is painted with Citadel brass, gold, and silver to look like a polished brass knob. The salt and paper hair and beard were done by painting a black undercoat and striping it with light grey.
This model is going to be the inspiration for an NPC in my upcoming game.

The other big project was getting the rest of the models that have been waiting sealed. I got everything out on Monday and gave them all a quick spray. For the final seal, I use a craft matt spray. It ends up giving them more of a satin finish, but protects them fairly well and saves me a bunch of money.

Most of these models were finished last year, but the Liberi and the wizard were definitely finished this year. That adds another 11 to my count, since I finished the vultures in the fall and I'm only counting each Liberi as a half model.
And as promised, a better picture of my zombie hunters:
