There's so many damned mold lines on these orks that this one mere 10x squad is going to take me several days to get finished.

Tonight's effort yielded the power klaw ork & the double knife wielder. And then my patience ran out.
League play starts next Wed, so I've got another 5-7 evenings to get 8 more orks cleaned & assembled.

More work on my Shadow Warriors and Sisters of Avelorn. I don't know where I'm taking the Sisters exactly, but they're looking okay, kinda regret priming them light grey, in all honesty. A little more on my Howling Banshees dry brushing their...manes? And a couple of other things.

Also, trying to prep for my next session of True Detective vs The Cthulhu Mythos tomorrow. My brain's feels like its leaking out my ears a bit from it, though.

Mostly an Ork thing. The two I built I had to clean up virtually every part.
There's some mold lines on the Krieg, sure, but nowhere near as bad as the orks. On the Krieg the most noticeable ones are on the torsos & lower leg/torso piece. Other pieces have some, but it'll depend upon how picky you are.

Oh, I am very picky when it comes to the mould lines but I am fighting this illness Thanks for the info!

Working on converting an old mushroom container from the grocery store into a Salamanders chapter barracks. It’s a bit more... cramped than I had hoped, but the pattern at the bottom makes for a passable roof.

I’d like to try using a couple of soup cans for a watchtower, but I’m having a bit of trouble figuring out how to style it. Acrylic paint works fine on plastic, but I don’t think it will fare quite as well on metal.

Well, today I move to a new state to start a new life. There is only one game store in like 400 miles of where I'm moving so I'm trying to find someone to sell my still on sprue army of 40k models and then focus on my art.
So if anyone wants to commission some art, let me know. Hell, if you want to see my artwork as a whole you can PM me for my discord link. Lots of NSFW stuff so be warned.

Organizing sales. Damn I bit quite a lot deciding to unload no less than 8 armies at once.

Good thing I started taking excel sheet for what everybody wants and what we have agreed for. Otherwise this would be impossible

One plus side is I should get most done f2f by organizing mass meeting in one place so the 100km one way becomes quite feasible way over post(and saves me headache. I don't really fancy idea of packing stompa for example...gorkanaut will alone be quite a headache. And thank god I found f2f sale for necron pylon!)

Bloody hell it's lots of work selling in essence 8 armies at once.

Funny moment. Took me 5 hours digging boxes until i ran into stompa. Was starting to think have i gone mad. Can't surely not see stompa sized model!

Finished a few more Kill Team Orks.
Gotta get them done by Wed. when the KT League starts - but man, cleaning the mold lines off these guys just saps the will to work on them....

Painted the skin on an Ogre model. Not quite happy with the finished shade, so at some point I'll probably re-do it.

Moooore trades. Went and shipped 4 packets(that pretty much sorts those for now. Remaining 16 or so guys on list atm will be done face to face) and been sorting out models for other guys.

Basically just need remnants of necrons plus slaanesh and seraphon armies get rid of and operation completed. Selling 8 armies at once was bit of a nightmare especially as they weren¨t organized well and most sold in pieces.

Cant wait for my bed room and kitchen be freed from this unholy mess of models and boxes While this is going on I cant remove my gaming table(need that table space) and while I cant remove that I cant replace near dead lamp so my bed room is bit dim!

Finished our 1st session of 1-shot PF adventure.
This one I fear is going to be a painfull grind as it's a lv.13 adventure run by a DM who;
• isn't great at descriptions,
• doesn't use a map/minis,
•can barely parse a stat block,
and doesn't even know what basic lv.0/lv.1 spells do.....

Other than that I need to build another 4 kill team orjs sometime here over the next 23 hours.

Doing a lot of prep for the next session of my True Detective vs The Mythos campaign. Feeling this is a pretty good scenario and right now I'm writing down the...description of the final monster thingy the PCs are going to fight as the final boss and...I really don't know where I get the ideas for these things from. Gross.

I have a metal LOTR Balrog I bought years ago that's been half done for ages now. Decided I finally wanna finish it. There are some problems though.

I managed to strip as much paint as I could off the piece and it has some pretty bad gaps I have to fill. In addition the plastic wings are damaged so I'll have to sculpt new bits on them.
So I drilled out the broken bit and put in paper clip which I will be using as a base to sculpt the Balrogs wing tip. I'll also have to do a once over and make sure I got all the mold lines and get off whatever extra paint I still can before I prime it.

As play progresses week to week they'll (hopefully) be earning proper paint jobs.

Working on tidying up an Arkurian Shadowblade.

Sadly it came to me through the loss of a friends friend, its an old as time full resin cast FW model and a lot of it had chunks of flash left in places, poor fitting parts and others outright coming away.

I hope to do it a service and make it somewhat of a memorial piece.

Well, two orks earned themselves some paint in our 1st KT game. Just wasn't the two I'd have expected.

Double-knife boy took down a CSM Nurgle champion & the one lugging a power ram jumped a Nurgle-SM armed with a flail - and simply obliterated him.
So sometime this week I'll paint their skin.

There is a certain satisfaction gained from saving poorly painted/maintained/constructed models. I hope that tank ends up being as beautiful as it deserves to be.
