These are coming along nicely. I have 4 of them painted but the wizard and big guy have kind of stalled me out on the warband.

I’m the exact opposite, the big guy was so enticing, though I’m not happy with his feathers, so that’ll need changing.

Super simple recipe, I might add a smidge of black for smoke, but they just look really hot without it.

Never tell me to slow down , I might take you up on it and not do anything for months again .

Well this months painting challenge is metal and wheels. So I’m entering in Thundrik’s Profiteers from Warhammer Underworlds.

Had to pick him up yesterday alongside with the Godsworn Hunt.

Which joined the delivery I received of Dreadfane yesterday morning.


So all that’s left is Mollog’s Mob, which I have enough store credit to pick him up later today. That means I’m all caught up purchasing Warhammer Underworlds just in time for season three to be released in a month or so.

On to painting and assembling.

Still no word on the new job, they are very interested, but we have had stated inspections and other interruptions which have kept us from sitting down and talking turkey.

Mollog has joined the family, so now season 1+2 are collected, plenty to paint before season three arrives in stores.

Tiny bit of progress on my monthly painting challenge entry

Bad night of restless sleep leads to some painting. Not done, but getting there.

You know that feeling when you feel really great about a model or a piece you’ve painted or made and THEN you go to post it on Dakka only to see someone else has done the same thing only 100x better nd it’s on the main gallery page .

No point in comparing yourself to others Theo, you can only compare it to what you have done yourself. Personally I think your painting has taken a step or two up in quality over the past calendar year and your steampunk dwarf (I forget their name) is looking great.

Thanks LTMW , I have been trying to do a better quality job lately, quantity has definitely suffered from it though.

Thanks Josh, it’s all leadbelcher to this point, washed heavily with Nuln oil and the gold/copper is again washed with sepia.

So did more work on mr. Floater. Added other metallics, gold and stormhost silver specifically.

Thanks Youwashock , definitely what I’m going for with these guys.

Finished up some more of them.

Not sure of names, skills or use for these guys. At least these seam to be the more ornate of the five, so the last two should go really quick.



On another note, I was helping out a coworker on Thursday night, over did it and thought I tweaked my back, by the time I got home my foot was killing me. Only worked an hour Friday before I had to call it quits as my foot was hurting too much to walk on. Went to workers comp Doctor this morning because it kept getting worse all weekend even though it was a lazy weekend. Turns out I reinsured my back from a few years ago and the pop from my foot on Thursday was a stress fracture in my foot. Didn’t work tonight, will see workers comp supervisor tomorrow to see what she wants me to do as walking is not a good option , and sitting hurts my back after about 20-30 minutes.

Also haven’t had a chance to sit down with prospective employer, but he said the regional manager is very interested in me, so good news there.

I hurt my back in Feb. and couldnt sit to paint for about 2 months. It still bothers me after playing for a few hours with all the bending etc. but I can paint pain free at this point. Good luck with your injury. I can certainly relate.

Thanks Gomez , I try and limit the pallets of each warband to keep them unified. When these guys were released for AOS I thought they were dumb. They have kind of grown on me though, and I could see a whole army being pretty fun to work on.

Well just went to follow up appointment and I have a fractured toe officially now. Actually it was official on Monday, nut the nurse practitioner was already done typing up my paperwork and sending me out the door to read the radiologists report. I got a nice boot to wear, thank god it’s not my driving foot . The muscle relaxer they gave me for my back is doing the trick until I walk around too much. Limited to 3 hours per day now. Physical therapy begins tomorrow morning for my back and a foot specialist visit tomorrow before work.

We gamers are just not built for strenuous work. One of the questions I was asked was if I engaged in any sports activities or hobbies. I said no sports, but I paint and do wargaming. The lady asked if that was paintball or laser tag , I had to break it to her that I move little plastic men around a table and make shooting noises......

That blows. The worst part of the injury is my paint station is not easily accessible with my back and foot hurting, so if I’m going to go do any work it’s a trek down two flights of steps. It makes me double thinkif it’s worth it each time.

Well now I have one giant boot which makes me lopsided, but I’m big and hairy enough to pass for a Sasquatch anyway, so roll with the punches. My wife will get some sweet revenge as she wore a boot while we were engaged and I called her big foot . Either way now I feel like these Khardon overlords with their big boots and stiff poses.

With my inner dwarf in full swing I finished off the unit. I’ll probably be adding a few plants to the bases, most likely some of my BtGoA plastic plants.




I also picked up darkoath skin contrast paint to try that out on my Godsworn Hunt warband.

Really like the look of it. The darker skin on spear gal is just doing a second coat over the first one. The dog got the same skin, but will probably be getting an agrax bath then a Nuln wash to pamper him.

Still have to finish the eyes of the nine warband .

Ah back injuries. Yeah, they suck. Had a pinched sciatic nerve from a bulging disc a few years back. Not. Pleasant. Lesson learned: do everything your physical therapist tells you to do, no slacking, no skipping, no excuses, no complaints, just do it.

First off, just wanted to apologize for the long absence, a fractured foot has really hindered me from doing anything productive over the last two weeks. One would think that I’d be more rested, but due to an incompetent nurse practitioner and standard company practices of trying to limit workers compensation claims, I was sent back to walk on my foot and do more damage. I finally got a hard boot to protect my leg and just received an amazon order so that I’m walking straight instead of my left foot being two inches taller than my right one . Anyway, MRI tomorrow and hopefully the orthopedic specialist has good news for me by the end of the week.

stride broken well, but the dwarves were fun to paint up, and tried a few tricks to really make a difference in what I’ve done previously.

JoshInJapan wrote:Dang, back injuries are the worst. Make sure you keep up with your PT (as if you didn't already know this...)

PT on back is going well, now I’ve got my EVENUP (cool shoe add-on for when your in a boot), so I won’t hurt my back from all the limping I was doing.

I tried to echo the old movie the Rocketteer, as they seem to be that sort of steam punk/pulp era sort of character.

Well, wish I could have put up more, but two flights of steps is really just too much, hence the break in progress lately.

Yeah, listening to the PT is really helpful, just wish they would have been working on the foot already, but by the prognosis I’ve heard so far it might be a couple weeks till they even touch my foot.

JoeRugby wrote:Dwarfs are looking great Theo

Thanks Joe, good to see you back and productive again as well.

Well as I said, I’ve been down a lot. They still have me walking on this foot at work about three hours a night, which is now hurting more than when the injury occurred. The remaining five hours isn’t sitting in the main lobby of the hospital telling people where to go . Boring as all get out especially late in the evening and on weekends.

Stairs are a huge ordeal so multiple days of not going to the basement to paint at all, almost a week now, until this morning when I couldn’t sleep after the cats woke me up letting me tpknow they were hungry. So with them fed and a strong desire to throw paint I got in a few hours this morning with the trees whispering my name it was time to work on some Sylvaneth Shadespire figs.


I was wanting to do more autumn colors, but the flowers on the branches just screamed Dogwood (our state tree here in Missouri), which is more of a spring type bloom.

I was thinking of doing all their hair in this orange color, but some of the yellow is just looking great, so the warband May be mixed. He is the furthest along painted though.

The skin is the contrast darkoath flesh, which I think looks fantastic, though most people paint the elf inside the trees as glowing spirits, I wanted to go different, almost like wooden prosthetics or wooden cybernetics for the injured elves.
The Hunt got a bit more work done on them as well, though I don’t really like the way they are coming out, so they will probably go on the back burner for a while.

Well the wife went to breakfast with her mom, so I’m headed back to bed , i need to catch up to a bunch of blogs as even doing that has fallen to the side of the road.
