Off to Salute tomorrow

Just to say that my already slow updates will be sitting this weekend out i'm afraid as it's unlikely that I will get anything done, Saturday i'll be at Salute and sunday I will be.... making up for the fact that I was at salute lol.

I didn't buy anything last year so and I don't have a lot on my shopping list this year so I hope to get some time on some participation games this year :).

So anyway, see you on the other side, have a good weekend whatever you may be doing.

Hordes Circle of Orboros: Ferile WarpWolf (PIP) part 3 & Ghetorix

Not at all convinced by the glowing runes, I need another go at that.

My brand new pot of P3 Molten Bronze is totally solid :( so I don't have a highlight colour for the Bronze.... otherwise i'm nearly there now.

Also managed to get Ghetorix to this level, still a few stages behind the ferile above:

Hordes Circle of Orboros: Ferile WarpWolf (PIP) part 2

Coming along quite nicely I think now, though there are some bits where the quickshade I appiled a bit too heavily or didn't wanter it down quite enough and need to be blended back in again with watered down bone white.

I'm pretty happy with how he's coming along so far.
 None of the armour has had more than it's base colours and a littel bit of quick shade for depth applied... i'm not looking forward to adding some highlight to the orange lol...

 I found a pot of P3 Molten bronze which I didn't realise I had, that should make a great highlight to the much darker I-kore Lucifer bronze :).
Got to paint his nose and eyes yet too.


And I keep forgetting to put the top coat of cream onto his tail at the moment it's just barely base coated.
You might not be able to see it in the pictures, I think it's most visble on his back, but any large flat areas of model i went out of my way to try and keep the top highlight showing hte brush strokes to try and give the effect of fine fur.... I think it looks pretty good (at least on his back lol).

I also managed to drop the model when painting him and i've broken off the back spike on the left hand side :(, chipped a few bits too but it was all the spikes and I hadn't finished them so I just slapped the highlight colour on the ends lol.

Hordes Circle of Orboros: Ferile WarpWolf (PIP)




 
Well the aim of this plog was to combat gamers ADD by painting and modelling lots of different things, and while that is still true I appear to have remembered that I used to have a Circle of Orboros army for Hordes... because I liked the figures... and the Bloodtrackers I painted up (the woodsey elf types with Javlins) have put me down the path of wanting a Circle army again...

Oh well go with the flow, I picked up a starter and some other bits and this is just a WIP to show i'm still alive...

Having food poisoning meant I had today off sick, which has meant that I have also managed to start on this fella.

Skaven Clans: Plague initiates


Converted some plague initiates from the guys swinging the screaming bell, takes a little bit of greenstuff to make good, and I added some brazier bits from dark angel space marine bits.
They are smaller than the average skaven, but that works for initiates fine :).

Wood elves: Treeman: PIP


And that's as far as i've got so far....

Painted in exactly the same way as the dryads here still got a layer of white and some deepening of the horizontal lines to go, plus the leaves and the eyes.

Wood elves: Treeman



I used to play wood elves in warhammer fantasy (well twice before I sold them lol) but I was never a fan of the GW treeman, just a little too random for me, though I appreciate what they were going for.

I did try to sculpt my own treeman back in the day but I never finished him, sold him on a couple of years ago.

Anyway, so I saw the new plastic ent kit and I much prefered it's style the the treeman and previous metal ent, so I bought one to go with my wood elf warband :).

He's had a bit of liquid greenstuff added for texture and I made a root ball for his raised foot from spare dryad bits. The lower legs were swapped around which required a little trimming on the knee sockets.
I've even managed to get a bit of paint on him.... will update soon.

So what do we think of it.....?
Hmmm ok so my daughter's not in to wood elves......

Cheers

Mordheim Vampire Hunters: Forces of Undead (Dire "Wolves")

I actually finished these such as they are last weeked.... finaly found some time to post them up.

Babies require soooo much time

These are really chaos hounds with the chaosy bits trimed or filed off and new tales, they would have looked more wolf like with bushy type tales but I don't have any and it doesn't bother me much anyway.

Could do with some more blood on the fangs (only managed to do it on one of them) but I was really just after getting SOMETHING off the painting desk (first thing since last year).

Hiatus

Just an update to show why I wont be updating this blog again for a while....



Born 14/12/13; 23.26. weighing 8,11. My Daughter :).

Going to be a large expanse of nothing much in the way of modelling in my future but I still hope to get some board games in here and there, and hopefully a Mordheim campaign in the new year... assuming my missus will let me out for the evening... lol.

Happy holidays everyone should I forget to update the blog on the day!!

Mordheim Vampire Hunters: Forces of Undead (plus New Ghouls Part 3)

After a rather productive 5 days off, the Ghasts are all complete :) (I need to get some gloss varnish for blood though).

 Not a bunch of folk i'd want to meet on a dark night....

I think these figures make great vaguely bat like ghouls, but they'd also work quite nicely as smaller werewolf type figures :).


 It's a speee.... a Spi.....  a spii-d-d-d-der!!!

Toy spiders to be precise.... they were cheap, and had a really slap dash bit of paint work, but I think they came out looking pretty good, they won't win any competitions, but they look fine for my purposes. 

BTW they are on 40mm bases so they make excellent "giant" spiders :).


Not bad for 20p each, the bases probably cost as much ......

Last on the update are the two gargoyles that will follow one of the Barons mistresses in the campaign, one grey one brown just to make it easier to distinguish between the two in games really... lol

And a shot of their backs... the chaos furies are actually quite nice figures I think.
