Cavalock and The Return of The Squig Hoppers

We are always on the lookout for new dessert joints so when Baker-at-Home heard bout the new French crepe cafe Gather that just opened at Raffles Hotel that's only a couple stops away from our apartment, we couldn't resist dropping for afternoon coffee.

The above Burnt Caramel crepe I had was great, not too sweet by my standards but I believe may be too sweet for mere mortals. The Baker-at-Home also enjoyed the rich flourless chocolate cake with 73.5% dark chocolate but I reckon not as much as her black coffee. She is after all, a fan of Ronin back when they were at Hong Kong Street. So she really really liked that and I think we do see ourselves in a future dilemma where we had to choose between coffee here or %Arabica at Arab Street as both these locations are kinda equal distance from where we live. Hah! Well, I guess the fancy ambience at Raffles Hotel sorta puts it at some kinda advantage. But seriously, it's plenty comfortable here and a nice place to chill.

Been back to painting these little Squig Hoppers cos in the game that I'm playing, Warhammer: Age of Sigmar, I need exactly 10 of them to form my frontline of troops. So I painted five of them months back and when I wanted to start painting the remaining five last week, I realised I forgot the colour schemes or how I got the colours combinations for the previous ones.

Fortunately I remembered at least a couple of colours like the red was from the Blood Angels Red Contrast Paint and the brown robes were from the Snakebite Leather Contrast Paint. The rest, I had to wing it. I couldn't get the colour of their teeth like before so some are whiter, greyer or darker than others. Hmmm... maybe that's more realistic?

Finished them and am quite satisfied with them. Every one was put together differently so they all look unique.
