Nice work. Those Deathwatch look great, as do Huginn's dwarves.

Nice rocks, Polonius. Will they be objective markers, or scenery?

I'll likely have a couple of entries for May, but will be showing them in early June, once they're photographed.

Unfortunately I have let the team down in May. I have been down with an incredible flu like never before and I just don't have the energy to sit at the painting.

First month I have failed since Az started the concept. Most disappointed with myself.

Lots of great stuff this month. I'll really have to step up my game...

@Archer: The flu sucks. Focus your energy on getting over it. You can make it up by painting twice as much in June.

Mekboy Hammerin' Somethin'





Perth, Western Australia

man, I haven't painted a normal unit/squad since those orks I did in February...starting to feel weird

this month, I've basecoated an ork dakkajet, nearly finished a pair of nurgle plague toads, and made a start on the pair of nurgle character models that come with the glottkin.

...but most of my work this month went to converting the glottkin model into a nurgle great unclean one (I sculpted more "normal" arms/hands on it, and built it a big cleaver and a big staff/standard), and got it all painted and finished...it's a single-model HQ unit, so it counts



...pretty happy with how that turned out, but yeah, I'm really starting to get itchy about getting some more infantry models done, instead of working on larger/single models...

...it's good to be green!

Whoa, those are gross and unsettling. Those are goblins from The Hobbit, right? They work much better as ghouls, I think.

I saw someone else use those Hobbit Goblins for Ghouls recently, and they're bloody amazing models for it. They look great, Huginn.

The Hare warrior has come up really nicely, as has Threepio and old-school Grim - which is a much nicer model than the new one! The scenic/guildball stuff looks great as well.

Are those Mechs old-school Battletech sized, or larger? They look effective, striding through the rubble - so much so that I can't tell the scale!


Here's my pledge for May. It took me awhile to get them photographed, and then more time to get them posted, but here they are!



More here and here.

Desert Camo Halberd. They are in 10mm scale so I reckon their about classic battletech scale I don't actually own any of the classic mecha myself. It's on a 60mm base anyway.

The Butcher of StoneGrave Moor.



He's a monster for my Fantastic Saga Undead force. I was going to paint a zombie dragon, but then I remembered this fatty was sat in a drawer somewhere, a Nurgle ogre project long since abandoned. I thought he would complement the ghouls nicely.
