Mostly, on my phone.

Had a good rummage through. Some cracking GS work and like the wash approach to the poxies, very similar to how I did mine. I'm a fan of grubbier metal on my nurgle, personally, but your stuff is looking snazzy nonetheless.

Nice work! I wouldn't call it sub par, unless you have a much better thread some where - absolutely on par for most of us!

Thanks very much guys! Appreciate the feedback. Important thing is I'm having fun.

Been a bit longer than I wanted between updates, and actually working on stuff, but I've been to two funerals over the last 2 weeks and I just cannot wait for 2018 to be behind me!!!

I finished the washes on the poxies so hoping to get the metals and other bits done before xmas:



Happy holidays to everyone if I'm not online!

So back in work today after a long enough break. Got a good bit done but unfortunately bought some more stuff, whoops! Kill Team boxset came back into stock at goblin gaming, and I got paid out my work expenses just before christmas sooooooo yeah great set!

But! 2019 is the year I paint!


Test model so taking it slow with this one. Got to say the quality is already much better than my marine painted a few pages back(which is over a year at this stage anyway!). Base is messy because I removed the sand on all of my based ones, the texture paint is just way easier. I really like how the green came out. Was primed using army painter green, then heavy nuln oil wash, once dried a heavy drybrush of warpstone green and then moot green highlight. Need to get some more paints for the salamanders skin. C&C welcome and happy new year everyone!

Just noting down that method for Salamanders armour. Very nice so far!

How time slips away. Haven't had much hobby time all through January. A lot of traveling, lots of events on and I fully overhauled by hobby space as well. I'll take some pictures during the week as some bits still need to be cleaned up but I was waiting for my new desk organisers to come as it was becoming unusable. For someone who doesn't paint that much I have way too many paints and there was bits everywhere.

Once that was all done I finished my salamander sergeant and I'm very happy with him. I think it's an acceptable level and I plan to get the entire army up to this at least, and spend a bit more time on detailing characters. I have two final test scheme models on the go, one terminator and one intercessor with some spellcrow conversions. Just want to test out their schemes then I can start batch jobbing these lads. You probably want to see the goods, so wait no more:





I purposely chose an open skin face to properly test the salamanders skin tone painting. Always been scared to paint skin but less so now, just following saint duncans steps on the warhammer tv youtube channel. It stands out a lot more off the black IRL


Next thing to do will be to build a proper lightbox to take better pictures in future, and I have the space to store one now too with my new layout

I also tested my hand a painting a picture of my cat for The Warden and it was quite enjoyable. It's obviously quite simple but myself and the missus are quite happy with it. Only thing I'm annoyed about is the whiskers, ceramite white is the bane of my life and it's a clumpy horrible mess of a paint

WFH today so picked up my latest conquest bundle from the post depot. Decided to take a picture as I always like seeing how these things come together. This is issues 19-22. Only two small conversions done to the Riever Sergeant, whose head was replaced with a spellcrow one, and the Blightlord Terminator with the plague spewer was given a spare axe so he's a legal normal Blightlord now

Ahhh, what happened to the time! Been going through an awful time in work, pure nasty bollocks like so found myself a new job. Handed in my notice and finished up the end of the month! That on top of normal life stuff have slowed down the painting work but I've a week off in April I'm hoping to catch up.

Anyway, latest conquest stuff(with shameless display of my bands freshly pressed CD):


And I made two abberants for my GSC kill team to round up the starter set to around 100 points. I like how they came out. Obviously the chubbier castaways from what they usually make:


I also had my first game of kill team and it's very fun. My Death Guard against my friend's(who is also called Steve) Deathwatch. It was a really close game, like stupid close! It was so close we actually don't know who won, but we had fun and the game was short enough that The Warden wasn't annoyed at the time I came home after work. In sadder news with the changing of jobs I'll be leaving my work warhammer group behind. Hopefully will find like minded people in the new place but that's to be seen

It's good to see you back boundless. Sorry to hear work has been such a pain, glad that you're free now. Cool haul of stuff, and congrats on your band's release. The abberants are looking cool, I'll have to take a peek in the Gene Stealer Cult codex one of these days.

Cheers Cam and Syro. Slowly getting back into things after a hectic few months.

I did some "painting" over the last 3 days. Friends were sharing big things they're working on in our whatsapp chat which got me wanting to do something big.



I'm not 100% happy with it but it will do. The recipe I have for the marines(which is spray green, wassh all over and heavy dry brush green) doesn't work quite as well on big flat armour pieces. Container doesn't matter but I would have liked the dread better. He's a bit blotchy up close. I won't be changing him though, No matter how bad my old work is I always like to keep it as a reminder of how to do things right in future and an example of how far I've come.

Anyway, once the shade dried went ahead with the container, one down and 2 more to go:


I also finally finished painting the 16 poxwalkers that have been staring at me the last few months. I started on the bases last night and will hopefully finish them this week:

I like the colour variation in your poxies, really gives the monoposes some variety. With the containers, would you consider running some oil streaks down from the vents maybe?

@inmygravenimage I was actually thinking of that and remember warhammer tv showing how to do it with their necromunda terrain using really watered down brown. Might do some tests first try it

I blasted ahead tonight and finished off the 16 poxwalkers. Now just 40ish more to go :/



I am having fun with them though. So much fun that I started on 9 more with the nuln oil skin as that was my favourite. Will definitely mix them more up in future but will keep some consistency for the sake of being able to tell what squad they are in
