About 20 years ago I bought these for playing D&D with. I only painted the Fire Elemental and poorly. I made the common mistake of reversing the light and dark colors of fire.
Well recently I came across them when I was looking for something else. So of course they hit the painting table, it was "new and shiney". And other projects got pushed back, LOL. So I rebased them all and got to painting.
One funny thing I noticed about these. I thought the Fire Elemental would be easy to paint and the Water and Air would be hard. It was the complete opposite. Painting Flames is a pain in the ass. Yet the Water and Air was some simple dry brushing, just had to find the right colors.
Hopefully these will hit a D&D table near me soon.
