Never paint in bad light

OK I thought I would keep my wife reasonably happy and paint my "little men" as she so sweetly calls them in the lounge by setting a small table up in front of the fireplace. Mind you the fact that it was freezing in my hobby room might have helped my decision somewhat. I was warm, we were comfortable. I could watch TV while painting. But the results in the morning looked like crap. Never ever ever paint in bad light - I am basically going to have to redo everything I did that night. Damn Dragon Princes are taking me an age to finish off.

This is what they look like in the book - mine are getting there but its not easy trying to emulate the 'eavy metal team.
