Ebay rescue deadnaught. I think I can get him done in one day start to finish. I'm done the green and metal parts, just need some edge highlights, gold trim and random lenses/insignias. I'm going to keep a limited palette for the honors since he's probably never going to see play.

Just have the obliterators left and I'll have finished my SHadowspear box. Of course, I bought two boxes of chaos marines since then I'll have to do after that and a pretty big stack of random cultist models I've been collecting...

I'm more than halfway through the plastic pile of shame but it was a pretty big pile to start with

Started assembling elves. Gw is both genius and troll/jerk with this model borrows page from 40k and holds together by belief...

1 piece snapped off when cutting with clippers but luckily not essential part and gluing it to waist solved issue. Next to paint without breaking it...and rest of elves. 1 pike twisted already when i opened box. But at least not broken.

Last night I was working on the first members of my new Ork army.
Yes, they are blue, not green. I have background fluff that explains the abnormal coloration but will divulge into that later.
And yes, that grot is carrying a looted bolter..
At work right now for another 12 hour shift but I will be working on these little blue devils once Im home again..

Painting some more $2 shop dinosaurs and bases as practice before I start my first 40K stuff.
Trying out different primer/base/wash combos in my artbook before seeing how my non-GW acrylics look on plastic.
Suspect I will need to bit the bullet and grab a couple of their metallics and contrasts to get the effect I want though.

Assembly for pikes was one of the easiest I have had for 2 part weapons to body actually.

What I dread will be playing needing to stay in b2b until you don't want to be in shining company...Ordered some movement trays for that purpose. Metal sheet so magnets under base helps keeping them in formation and no edges so enemy can put models in b2b normally...if they can fit...those pikes poke where enemy will be...going to be paint to play.

What I've done hobbywise today is print my own "hard copy" of the 1st edition Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay rulebook, only available new as a pdf from Cubicle 7/Drivethrurpg.

I thought I'd save myself some money over buying a 2nd hand hard copy (softback or hardback), but recently found one on Amazon for £27. Think my attempt possibly came out at about £10 over that (including the cost of the pdf), due to having to buy new ink cartridges, cardstock, spray mount and sticky back plastic.

Result, wish I had been able to afford to buy US Letter size paper (known as quatro size) instead of A4, but it was prohibitively expensive, not bad for my first attempt at book binding though -

Procrastinating.

I need to;
*Start on painting a Gold Dragon for D&D. Just the base coat today.
*Re-read the Bolt Action 2e rules, make an army list, & sort out my models (it's been so long since I last played BA that I'm not sure wich models are wich squad wise & they're all scrambled up in the case)
*Make a Team Yankee list/make sure I know what's in what squads (like BA it's been awhile, but this case doesn't require re-sorting.)
*Add some squad marking to my WWII Shermans.
*And finally type up some final notes for the next D&D session.

Finished the ShadowSpear box, now I just have to paint/assemble all the junk i bought while waiting to get to the box. Tried painting the Master of Executions's flesh tabbard in all the various contrast skin-tones....



Got reminded that all the official ones are really just shades of European. Added some contrast wildwood panels but dang, I need to develop some good skin recipes.
