Nice work, Polonius. The etch makes an effective designation marker. Llamahead - I use supeeglue, very carefully applied. If there's a better way I'd love to find out, though since it can be messy and overflow at times.

Awesome stuff guys. Cool looklimng Mechs up there, Llamahead and I love that trio of Dreadnoughts, Manalishi. Very cool indeed. I need to get my own ones done someday. And ZoBo, your Vulkan looks great though I can't approve of the livery you've painted on the poor blighters on the base!

noticed a couple of things I had to touch up...just updated the pics

@Azazelx - cheers, and I just had to paint those poor chaps like that, as he's probably going to be spending a good deal of time beating up Manalishi's dudes

Did you add the blue-grey to the brickwork? It looks effective against the grey of the smashed bricks. if they're going up against Manalishi's IW, then it makes sense. I guess.

Here's something else I (finally) finished this last month - a Bones Hydra. It's a monster. That's a unit!



More here.

I'll have to double-check and see if there are any other units I finished this month that I haven't put in here...

With everything going on I didn't get much done. Which is disappointing as I got these two done in the first week of this month and then no progress since......

Dark Ages archers, as not seen at Salute. These are Drabant Miniatures, two thirds vikings and one third Saxons - they don't have a huge range. Pretty nice for historicals.
