Since I realized that Thanksgiving is a week from today I thought it was well past time for me to get some cooking practice in. We don't really cook in my family, so when I took on the bread portion of the Thanksgiving menu this year I knew I'd have my work cut out for me. Having squandered weeks and months already I got cracking this morning. I found a recipe for Cheddar Biscuits and gave it a whirl. Simple recipe, few ingredients, just my speed. It took me longer to dig out all the various bowls, cups, spoons, and pans that it did to actually make the biscuits. The results? Tasty. But this is a gaming blog and not a cooking blog, so on with the show.

Finally we come to Black Ivan. After casting around on the internets for a quality shot of the 5th Border Legion icon, I came across JTY's examples. His work is all very nice, but it was the Spriggan that caught my eye, in particular the icon on the top. This new example made me reconsider the icon as it looked more like a diamond behind the 5 instead of a blood drop. I was already of half a mind to scrap the first attempt and do it over, so before I could come to my senses I put a couple coats of black on and started anew. I began with an elongated cross.
