Late March update....Because its April

Hello all!

So I'm back and got some stuff to show off!  Honestly?  March was pretty slow and most of what I got painted was....not really finished in March.  I finished it all last week!  Which I had off and I did a lot of painting.

So lets get down to it all!

Five Stormcast Judicators!  I am SO CLOSE to 1000pts.  I just need to get 3 Prosecutors done and the first stage of my Stormcast is complete!

Next up....

One Roper Monster for D&D!  Now I already have one of these...but I picked this guy up back in the summer and just decided to get him off my table ASAP.  So I did...and now here he is ready to eat people in caves!

Finally one last big model...

One 6th Edition Dark Elf Hydra!  I won this model back in 2007 at a GW store event when the 7th Edition Dark Elf Army book was released.  They were getting rid of their old stock i the way GW used to do it...by giving stuff away.  So I got a 60 dollar metal model for Zero Dollars.

Now here he is!  I must say I have nightmares about putting this guy together...but now that he is done (Minus the Beast Masters that is) I can lay my head to rest.

So that's it for now!  Hopefully I'll have more updates soon.

February Wrap-up!

Hello once again all!

So I didn't update much last month, but that doesn't mean that I haven't been busy getting things painted!  I actually managed to get a bunch done on two separate projects.  So lets see what I managed to paint!

Four more Stormcast Liberators! When added with Steelheart I have another unit of five. Now I just need to put together the last 5 Liberators I have for a whole Unit of 10.  But that will have to wait as I have other things I'm working on now.

 
Four Skaven Clan Rats for some Warhammer 6th Edition Skirmish!  These old models are lovely to paint and super quick.  I have a bunch more that are currently in route so I hope to have a decent sized force ready soon so I can play a few games.

Now one more entry for this month.



My last three Bones 1 Kickstarter Kobolds.  I now have a full 12 painted up and out of my Bones bin.  Nothing real special for these guys but I am running out of space on my D&D Shelf in my display case...

So in total for February I managed to paint 12 models!  Pretty good if I do say so myself. I have one more random model i want to paint before I continue with the last models I need for my Stormcast 1000pts.

Until then!

Late January....Or Early March?

Hello once again all!

I'm back with my Round up of January...a week into February!  Sorry but I honestly was distracted from painting most of the month and honestly didn't get around to finishing what was on my desk until a few days ago, technically making it a February paint completion.  However, I make the rules so....



Three Stormcast Liberators!  The last 3 I needed done to complete my unit.  This whole unit was years in the making.  In fact I'm pretty sure I started this whole unit back in 2016 and just kept delaying getting it done.  But now with these guys done I have a full 10 man unit completed!



Tada!  Now with the completion of these models it means I have only done 4 models for the whole month of January.  Which is fine honestly.  I decided I'm going to take it easy and not stress myself too much...but I WILL finish my Stormcast.

So with that said, on to the next unit!

2022 and Painting is the Name of the Game! Also Warhammer Technically....

Hello all!

I'm back for a new year of painting minis and kicking ass.  And as I'm locked down at home, I'm all out of Ass.  With this said I have decided to FOCUS this year.  I'm getting a project done whether it kills me or not.  I probably wont, but still!

So with all that said lets start off with my first project I intend to get done this year.  My Hallowed Knights Stormcast Eternals!


Lord Celestant on Dracoth!  I was kinda dreading painting this model because I couldn't decide on how to paint the Dracoth.  My decision came down to me having gone to my Local Game store and bought some Vallejo Dark Green paint.  From there I just decided "Dragons should be green" and went with it.

So that model is done!  Next up, finishing my Liberators.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

So...uhh....Not a lot of painting in the second half of the year.  Honestly despite my best attempts at motivation it just wasn't happening.  But a new year is here as well as me being stuck working from home.  So now I don't have an excuse.  I WILL finish a project this year.  First up is completion of my Stormcast which I have sitting half-primed for awhile.  That will be my main project and despite earlier years I will not be distracted!

With all that said and done I did manage one last thing done before the end of the year.  I actually finished it back in November but never got around to showing it to you all.  So without further ado...

Forest terrain!  Not much to say about painting it honestly.  I bought the trees from the dollar store and scrapped off all the fake snow and then re-flocked them to mild success.  Basically the same as my last bunch of trees.  

So with this last model/project for 2021 my year end total comes to 118 models!  That's 15 more then last year.  Hopefully I can keep up the trend.

 So thats my last of 2021.  Hopefully 2022 will start off with a bang!

Getting in the Groove...

Hello once again!

So I'm back with more stuff to paint.  After taking a rather long break and only really doing terrain I need to get back into mini painting to clear off my new pile of minis.  So I decided to start on something that has been sitting on my table since 2008.


One Empire Warrior Priest!  Or in this case, my Arch lector that I bought for 7th Edition Warhammer that I never got around to painting.  Howevere. now my War Altar has a proper Arch Lector...or just regular Warrior Priest.  I have one more Warrior Priest model in a box...somewhere.  I'm sure I'll get to it eventually.

Next up....


Bones Goblins!  These are from the first Bones kickstarter from years ago.  There are 12 in total in the original kickstarter and I have now painted half of them.  6 more to get done...once again I just gotta find them.

Now I need to make a decision on what to paint next.  I have to finish a project, I just have to decide on what it will be.

Stay Tuned!

Wow, Being Lazy but Making Progress!

Hello all once again!

Wow its been awhile since my last update.  In fact I intended this to be an "End of October" report, but that didn't turn out like I had planned.

With that said I didn't get many "models" done so much as I got a bunch of pieces of terrain completed and ready for the tabletop!  So lets take a look at what I got done in the last few months.


Bunch of Terrain!

So I've been trying to get a board filled with terrain for both Frostgrave and Rangers of Shadowdeep.  As well as for other skirmish games like Mordheim or Call to Arms.  I've made a lot of headway in the last 2 months and am almost ready to start a campaign!  Just got to get more forests done.  I have more coming but for now I have 17 more models painted and done!

Until Next time!
