Against the Ogre Horde!: Additon Completed!

Hello all!

So I have been bust finishing up the Yetis I had bought to add to my Ogre without further ado! 

I like to think they came out okay, fortunately the colour scheme was pretty simply once I figured out how to do the dirty white fur in a way that worked.  All that is really left is to magnetize them to the Skirmish base I made and seal everything with a varnish.

This leads me to what to paint next, now I have an annoying tendency to buy minis for projects I dream up and then proceed to throw them in "the pile" as I haven't finished OTHER projects first.  Well my main plan now it to clear out all the minis I have purchased in the last 5 months regardless of what project they are for

So far I have managed to paint the yetis (as can be seen above) and the one Tomb King I managed to get.  Lets look at the other stuff I have purchased to see what else I need to paint!

Old Metal Dwarf Bolt Thrower

A Gorger!

Uruk Hai Scouts


A bunch of Gnoblar fighter/Gnoblar Trappers

Now in addition to this I also bought another lot of 3 Uruk-Hai Scouts with bows which I already have on the painting table (see previous blog entry...just can't seem to get the picture off of Ebay).  I also have a few things I picked up on the Last Chance to Buy which I plan on painting as well but my main goal now is the above.

Wish me luck!

Project Report of Unassailable Awesomeness!

Hello all!

Okay so I've been pretty busy over the, almost 2 weeks since I updated.  I've been busy getting stuff together and prepping stuff to get on the painting table.  So here's what I have going on so far.

I've mostly got painted the last of my Yetis, which pretty much just need to finish up and touch up the other two I've already finished (getting the colour scheme that I like has been a bit hit and miss)

In addition I do have some Lord of The Rings minis I plan on showing off but, as can be seen in the above photo, I have 3 Uruk-Hai Scouts as well as Lurtz ready to paint.

That Horse in the corner is a touch up of one of my Empire Army minis.  I hope to re-base him and touch up the rider.

Lastly I have those two spiders for my D&D campaign.  The bases came out okay....but my Greenstuff work needs improvement.  I've been looking into cheap alternatives for making the Stone bases.  So far only Renedra has something I like.  Although I am not sure they are the same size as a GW base....mostly so I can just glue those on the top of one and not have to worry about sculpting anymore.

Anyway I'm off to paint!

Against the Ogre Horde!: (Quick Addition to the Horde)

Hello All!

Okay so I know that I said I was done with my Ogre Horde....and I am!  However, this army was built initially for 8th Edition.  Seeing as how 8th no longer exists...I started rebuilding it for the 9th Age!  It was pretty good at first despite the changes in point values the army was a good fit.

However, as the 9th Age is in an "evolving" state right now, the points values have been adjusted to such a degree that my original 2000pt list dropped by 200pts.  So I had to make some...additions (and adjustments!)

Here's my start on that:

So this is my Yeti colour scheme. (face is a bit blurry, should have taken another picture)

I'm okay with how he turned out although I need to work on my Ice effects and, also, did not realize how many bones they have tied to their fur.  Otherwise he came out as I had to Paint up two more!

The Return of the Shadow: Update 2

Hey all!

So its been a busy weekend for me but I have a few things to share with you....okay technically I have two things to share with you...and here they are!

Well now you know how I said I was "done" with my Ogres?  Well, technically I'm not...I got these guys that I finally finished stripping, pinning, basing and green stuffing getting them ready to be painted.  I also managed to get the last two Ringwraiths I have based and ready to be sprayed.

The greenstuff still needs time to set but I hope to get the Ringwraiths done so I can move on to the 9 Dunedain I have. 

Well I'm off to get that all done!
