Back from the summer holidays at last, I am trying to get something done about all the stuff just standing about and cluttering up my shelving. Lots of it is just standing around awaiting undercoats or what not. I have started with some of those that have gone a step beyond the undercoat, first up is the rest of the […]Read More Back from my summer holiday, finishing the Cockroach Cluster!
…And I finished the second of the Chaos Marines from the Dark Vengeance box set. Too many details! Takes ages even with my sloppyfast paint style. enough said. 25mm base, polystyrene plastic. Total minis painted so far this month: 44Read More Last post of the day: Chaos Marine
So I spent a couple hours on these space zombies today, all the painting time I have had in about a fortnight. 10 more means that 31 or so are done. And bonus: Mike Wazowski, a Reaper Bones 2 “Hordling”, some sort of minor demon. Very minor. That base is 20mm.Read More Space Hurps part three
This week has seen little time for hobby, so I “cheated” by doing groups that were extra super fast to finish. First the Reaper Bones 77016: Rats. 12 of them to be precise. These are cute little critters. Until you notice that they are the size of rather large dogs…and they are many, A shotgun only […]Read More The third for March
So February’s challenge was met and surpassed by several bonus minis painted. Hoody Hoo! I managed to keep on track for this, even when being so flighty as I am. Seems to be a recipe to get something done. For March I think I want to do something about squads, teams or units. As in squads I have […]Read More My Resolutionary Challenge for March
Staying on target for Februrary: 4. Warhammer Fantasy Battles: Warhammer Fantasy old school Ogre Gladiator. I love the old Jes Goodwin Ogre models. So much character! 40mm base, white metal. 5. Warhammer 40.000 Space Hulk / Warhammer 40.000 Tyranid Genestealer. Painted in the same vein as one I did earlier, this is an […]Read More Febuary Painting Resolution, chapters 4-8 + 3 bonus minis!
So the new years resolutions are as follows: 1. Not to buy any miniatures (ebay or otherwise) apart from kickstarters unless said miniatures are funded by my own ebay sales. So far, so good. Have bought the one box of the old mantic space zombies conversion set and today I received a set of Wargames Factory […]Read More Space Hurps and the Resolutionary Painting Challenge; January!
An ancient Warhammer Chaos Dwarf from the time Chaos Dwarfs had a lot of individual character and were not identical sumerian curlybeards. Test paint scheme for my Warhammer 40k Dark Venegance Chaos Marines. Yup, got that set when it was new, been lying around ever since. The Dark Vengeance-miniatures are really characterful. Looking forward […]Read More more off the shelf, and a pair of unknowns
Not much getting finished lately, too much other stuff going on. But at least the Deadzone Plague 3rd gen mooks are all done, here are the latest: Now how to get the heavies primed without any spraycans left? Space Hulk is being re-released! Yay! Seems time to get the last version actually done then… […]Read More The rest of the Plague Mooks, and Space Hulk!
So, over the course of what few free evenings I have had, the rest of the large group of orks have progressed and have been finished. Some observations along the way: Painting many figures does take ages, even when doing it as basic as this. I have decided that I will not ever be using […]Read More Salvaging Rouge Trader Orks, part 3
39 in one go does take some time, even though each individual miniature only gets what amounts to minutes. If they take on average 10 minutes each from start to finish, (probably closer to 15 including cleanup and basing) it still means about 8-10 hours actual work all together… At any rate, here is […]Read More Rouge Trader Orks pt II
The Challenge: Salvage this group of 39 Rouge Trader Space Orks I recently bought of ebay for less than the price of a pint of beer, to a decent table top standard. Speed is of the essence. I will not be spending hours on these, and they will certainly not be golden demon material when […]Read More The Scrapheap ER Challenge!
