Some nice work there, weety - given you're in retail, are we going to lose you to the *shudder* Christmas shopping rush in the near future?

First one of the doggies I got a while back. I need to dig out the rest of the pack, they are tucked away in boxes. This one is some kind of mastiff I think.

I have worked in a supermarket and in a few pubs (once even on Christmas day) in the past, so I know what you will be going through.

Good job on the dog.

I found the other dogs... and a pack mule. But first some experimental chaos marines - its hard to see from the picture but they are painted with a base coat of metallic pink.

They look kind of translucent like that. Might be a good technique to remember for creepy things in the future.

Nice work on the recent-ish stuff, Weets. Deathwatch and Admech robot look particularly good, and the Space Skinks are also very cool.

The blued pearl pink is a nice look. Its a mix of vallejo metallic medium in about a 2:3 ratio with some rose pink, applied in several thin layers, then I added a little white to the mix and used that quite thickly as a highlight. Then the whole thing was doused in a blue-grey-purple wash.

Thankyou all for keeping the blog rolling with comments. As you may imagine Iceland Stores has me firmly in its frosty winter grip and there is very little time for hobbies, but lots of lovely money for presents, this year I have bought for myself a troupe of 80s chaos thugs, a regiment of 90s savage orcs with command and shamen, an old orc dreadnought missing a foot, metal night goblin regiment with 2x shamen , 2x goblin doom divers, a modern rhino, some tyrannid warriors, another box of ungors, 3 kataphron destroyers and a squad of 30k spez mrinz.

I got it all for a song because blackfriday/cybermonday seemed to have overwelmed the normal high rollers on fee-bay. After gorging all weekend on a constant stream of tempting auctions they just weren't there to catch the badly photographed joblots at 7am in the morning. Postman looked very miffed at me having carried several sacks of lead up 3 flights of stairs. Don't know when I'll get around to painting any of it but January is coming so chin up!

Still not done on these but more progress - I had a go at making my own brass colour by mixing biege, gold and sepia into the metallic medium - looks quite nice but needs washes and highlights - done some electrical effects on the power weapons but they need more contrast to look convincing:

Its a great old kit, very good conversion fodder. I love the tiny snouts on the helmets, very porcine, goes well with pink.

Looking good. I wasn't sure about the pink/blue, but your brass sets it off nicely.

Its my last day off work till xmass tomorrow. I've got the gaming chair all tuned up and I'm already drinking overproof cherry wine heavily.

Some things got painted this morning:

Chaos Mureeens get a delicate splash of dark wash in their crevices...



My kit-bashed foot knights are ready for me to get indecisive about heraldry on...



In case you missed it these guys are made from leftover empire knight heads and arms attached to the old halberdiers used to come with that game - I forget whats its called - it was one of those licensed things from waddingtons or spears... Battlemasters! - had to look it up.

Foot knights are looking excellent, and almost ?cute somehow in all the oversized armour but without the horses? Maybe just me...
Are you thinking individual heraldry for each one, or a unit theme? Should be a fun freehand exercise

Very belatedly getting the joke here Dr H. I'll have to use those shield designs now for the Lulz.

January sweet january is here and I've gotten the basic scheme done on the dark angel squad. Its been ages now since I last picked up the brush. I started with watered down vallejo dark green which was a "surprisingly" good match for dark angel green. On the third coat I added some p3 armour wash for shade. I need to neaten it up in a few places and do highlights.

Good to see you back at the table again weets. The DA are looking very solid. Like the contrast between the bright red and mellow dark green.

Thanks gitsplitta. Even with xmass out of the way I'm probably not going to get these finished for a few weeks. The cold and darkness slow me down. January apathy. I should get the fur hat and coat outa storage again.

Next to do are highlights in pastel green, eye details, insignia on the knees, metals... if I can just get out of this cosy duvet nest...

They (meaning the fur) do look quite luxurious!
