Cleaning Off the Paint Table: Getting Kinda Lazy

Hello Everyone!

Okay, I didn't get much done this week as it was crazy!  One of the reasons for that is that I finally received my Kickstarter after being a year late.

Yeah Conan!

So I am not really planning on starting this until the new year.  What I am planning on doing however is getting the minis in the box based and base coated and ready to go.  There are quite a few minis in this game and the King pledge means I have two whole boxes of them.  So I think I'll focus on just one box for now.

In the mean time the endless paint war continues...

Until next time!

Cleaning Off the Paint Table: The Fighting Uruk-Hai!

Hello once again all!

So I'm back once more with more of the minis I'm trying to get done and off my "to do" list.  This week I finished up some old Uruk-Hai Scouts I had been working on earlier this year.  If you recall my "Fellowship of the Ring" posts, where I try and get all the old Lord of the Rings Minis together to run the campaign.  I finally finished the last group I had started!

So here we have two bow wielding Uruks and, of course, Lurtz!  Sorry if the pics look a bit shiny, I had just finished giving them one last ink wash and I hadn't dull coated them yet.  That's three more minis I can eliminate from my pile (yay!).

Next up, a continuation of my Tomb Kings AoS army:

I had already started on them when I forgot I hadn't taken a picture yet.  For the first time in a long while I'm going to try and batch paint these bad boys.  I'll make a note that I hate batch painting. It's something I came to loathe after putting together something close to 150 Empire foot soldiers.  I'm going to try for this one however.

Wish me luck!

Cleaning Off the Paint Table: Getting the Hard stuff Done

Hello once again all!

So I'm back once more to show you what I managed to get done this week.  So without further ado!

Behold my terrible picture taking and weep!

I've honestly been dreading painting these models for a long time which is why I decided to just go do them.  I wasn't sure how to get a decent colour scheme for them as both the Elf and Dwarf were very "busy" models.  In the end both these D&D characters came out okay far better then I expected.  The Troll was more a case of not being sure how to paint a Stone Troll, but I like to think he came out okay.

So no on to my next bit of painting:

My fighting Uruk-Hai!

Cleaning Off the Paint Table: Episode 1, The Phantom Paintbrush

Hello Everyone!

Well I have finished up my terrain project (for now) and decided to dedicate the month of November to cleaning up my paint table.  What do I mean by that?  Well, I have a tendency to get a bunch of models base coated with the plan of painting them, only to not actually paint them...

That changes now!

So my plan it to just go through the models I have lying around (Literally, they are all just lying around) and paint through them regardless of army project.

So with that in mind, lets take a look at the paint table!

Okay so going in order we have Prince Apophas (who I already showed you last update). The spider is from Battle For Skull Pass set that I cut up, re-positioned, and painted as a Phase Spider.  He's mostly for D&D, or a Frost Spider for Frostgrave.

The Stormcast I got as a spare miniature from the "Start Collecting" magazine that came out a few months ago. I painted him up to look like one of the Hallowed Knights, who frankly have the best colour scheme. Lastly the Orc...well he's a test model for my Orc and Goblin army.  Hopefully I'll be able to get the rest done soon!

Now to show what I have next on my paint table!

Just a taste of whats next, stay tuned!
