  1. Another day and another update. Go me. This time though it was a little looking back. As you know the plan is for 2,000 points (give or take a little here and there) for a given army. The problem I had was with the release of changes to points values it would mess with my delicately balanced lists. I chose the end of 8th edition as the tipping point where I would stop chasing editions and points changes. So yes, my armies will be out of date for 9th edition 40k and currently unusable in AoS for most of them, but I had to draw a line in the sand and I am happy with my decision. Having said that.....these models are the last ones I needed to bring all of the existing armies back up to 2,000 points as per the last Chapter Approved for 8th edition 40k. Bring on the Orks.... I agonized as to what to add to my Orks to bring them up to the 2,000 points and I chose to enlarge the Nobz mob (which I posted a while ago now) and since they are a Freebooterz army I couldn't resist getting some Flash Gitz for that authentic Pirate feel. I mean, they have Pirate hats, who can go past Orks in Pirate hats? They are a super expensive unit though and I don't hold much hope of them doing anything before they get wiped off the table. Unfortunately they have been languishing on my painting station for some time and every now and then I would grab one and do a little bit more. It got to a point recently that their unfinished presence annoyed me enough to finish them off. They have far more detail than I had anticipated and I haven't given them the respect that the wonderful models deserve. I kind of like the way that the basing material has splashed up onto the legs and coats of the models. Kind of ties them to the bases and gives them a weathered appearance. Thanks for reading and hope to be back to the Beastmen soon, they too have been languishing with my lack of focus.

  2. Quick update, with what I hope some more to follow shortly as I have been getting some good painting progress going. But the issue with batch painting is it is nothing worth showing, nothing worth showing, nothing worth showing, then bam lots to show. So have put the effort into getting the last four medieval buildings done and I am pretty happy with them. Especially the colour of the roof tiles. Something about it I just like. Here we see my capable assistant Carl showing off the group of buildiings, the two watch towers and the two churches. I will explain the strange little additional thing in a moment. One of the churches is a little more ostentatious than the other. Mainly as I didn't seem to have all the same pieces for some reason, but these kits have been in my possession for ages and the reason for the missing pieces is lost to the mists of time. Like most of my terrain I kept it quick, simple and dirty. Then again that is most of my painting. But I think they look effective and importantly as they are stone constructions look far more solid and intimidating than the farm houses I have already finished. Here Carl is trying to gain access to a watchtower. They are pretty big and will add some nice vertical terrain. I think they could look quite nice lined up around the Castle. Then again, who would want to be caught in one of these things during a siege? Carl on the rooftop, what a view for a lowly Ungor. Hope he doesn't get used to it. Now, the strange little add on piece, I don't know why I only have one and which kit it came off. But it allows you to "connect" a watch tower and church into a single larger building. I think it works pretty well for its purpose and adds some modularity to the kits. Carl picking a fight with a statue... Thanks for reading and hopefully have more finished progress soon.

  4. Test models for the Genestealer Cult. I'm quite happy with how the Abberrant came out. Not so sure about the Neophyte, he's a bit bland maybe.

  5. Its those beady red eyes that do it guys! Well I am downing the paintbrush on "Benny" the furry mage! Maybe need to get some blue ink for the magic ball and curls around him - I painted his eyes black , which is hard to pick out, but might add some red now I look at korocite's model. Have the base left to finish but thought I'd add him now as probs not going to get any time before end of January now to finish his basing off. Might send him off to my nephew who does D&D. Figured he may be able to use a magic rabbit. cheers

  15. As Krefey needs a good break how's about we go with a theme. I read that 2023 is the Chinese New Year of the Rabbit so as a random idea why not do a rabbit related theme (Bugs Bunny, jo-jo rabbit, feral rabbit zombies, Easter bunny's ....etc). I know Eureka miniatures (Victoria) do Samurai Rabbits lol for those looking for a new army (http://www.eurekamin.com.au/gallery.php?g2_itemId=3291) cheers

  16. Did up a warmaster chaos chariot unit yay (got 2 more to go), working on a 3d Print Groany Snark (Piggy cupid) for Kings of War and a rat mounted gobbo wiz (pictures below). Also up next a undead Warmaster dragon (I had to green stuff the head as it was missing). WM 10mm Chaos Chariots (look a lot better in real life honest) Forgive the terrible photo's pls. take care out there and hope you are all smashing your painting backlog (well at least getting a chance to pick up a brush here and there) cheers G

  17. The idea of a Victorian British IG force was always so cool but never a must-build for me, but the great value for the WA Bulldogs infantry meant I couldn't pass them off! Coming along well

  18. I wouldn’t say bland. I would say it’s more that the two generations share little to tie them together if that makes sense. Maybe use the same skin tone on the aberrant on the Neophyte?

  19. Rightio...been pretty hot here of late so been avoiding the 3d printing but managed to get some done yesterday and started painting today. I have a rabbit mage/sorcerer/wiz/mage/seer /alroundGoodGuyInNeedOfSeriousOrthodontics to do for this month challenge. I read on the 'internet" his name is "alphonso" LOL. I will of course call him something diff and way cooler - "Benny" ! Check out his eye brows - give Gandalf a run for his money. Happy painting and hobby-ing (in general) folks.

  20. I can absolutely recommend the Frostgrave 20 model soldier kits, quite well priced generic human warriors/skirmishers that are fun to build for either skirmish or even army sized units!

  27. Happy new year to everyone, I hope that the festive season has been fruitful and peaceful. I thought I would show off some photos to inspire some motivation in myself. So first of all, when my in-laws semi-recently sold their house to downsize I got offered the following cabinet. I was hesitant in regard to getting it to my place, but with a couple of stout lads we managed it... Seems I can fit about 2 armies per shelf....going to need a lot more space. I laid out all the "medieval" urban style terrain I had. The two boards made a 3 foot by 4 foot area, so I am pretty happy with how much terrain I have for this style. Spread out over a full table I think it will make for a really great (if still dense) table. All of the buildings are fully "playable" as in the floors and roof can be removed should someone want to send troops inside. I then set up the buildings in a really dense "inside" the wall sort of arrangement. Kind of ended up quite claustrophobic. Could be great for a Mordheim game, although some higher walkways are a little lacking. I am almost at a point of being happy enough to put my medieval terrain collection to bed. I just have a few things left.... I have 2 of each of these (GW Watchtower and Church). So another 4 buildings and I think I can jam pack a table when needed. I also have the bits to attach the Church to the Watchtower into a single bigger building so the whole collection will be able to be modular and always something different. Thanks for reading and hear to a healthy and stress free 2023 (please...I could really use no more surgeries...)
