Frostgrave Warband: The Choosers of the Slain

I've had these ladies primed and ready to go for almost a year now, and I'm very glad to have finally settled on a color scheme and gotten them painted.  I picked up the two packs of Valkyries from Wargames Foundry at their Christmas sale last year.  I was a little disappointed to find a couple of the figures miscast, but I had enough to build a warband, using Reaper's Ice Queen as a Wizard, and if I need to I can pin new swords to the hands of a couple of the miscast ones - it looks like in all cases not enough metal made it into the mold, and so I've got two holding just hilts, and the figure I've chosen for my Apprentice was originally holding a spear, which in this case has become a staff.

Left to Right: Brunhilda (Apprentice), the Ice Queen, Sigrun (either Knight or Templar)

Hildr and Gunnr, a pair of Infantrymen

Hlokk, Olrun and Herja, three Thugs

Geidriful and Goll, two Thieves
I normally don't do eyes, but I think I want to go back and try to do a couple of them, and I definitely want to give Brunhilda and Sigrun's lips a touch up.  Same with Geidriful and Goll's nipples, I suppose.

I should probably do another layer of snow on the bases as well.
