Oh no, dude. That's frigged, hoping it heals soon!

My father and I moved stuff around my hobby room today and it's a much better layout. I then tried to reassemble broken parts on minis (which is VERY frigging fun, indeed!) and a few other minis including trying to finish my Warlocks and...I don't know who designed how they were assembled but they did a bad job. The legs are glued on a little indent with a nub inside the cloak skirt and...when one doesn't glue properly it's crazy annoying how hard it is to stick back on when the mini is mostly assembled.

I did some priming and fixed a few resin mini-bits with boiled water. Then began painting a Farseer proxy mini I bought from Etsy; she's fun to paint, but, frig, she's a bastard to assemble.

I also haven't been happy with the face of my newest version of Attelus for a while; it's all scaly and lumpy underneath a particular light source. I did some research, and it might've been because I didn't wait long enough for the last coat to dry, so that the next one might've torn into the last one. So, I took a blunt knife and very carefully scrapped off the lumps and the scaly bits and much to my surprise, it worked! It's much, much better just gotta go back and fix up Attelus's face a bit. Quite happy about that.

Sitting around sidelined from doing most anything more usefull/entertaining thanks to a knee injury....

So I'm passing the time by color coding the bases of 120+ Skaven clanrats/Stormvermin/plague monks.
Each unit is based in a different district color - blue, green, red, etc.
This is temporary fix to solve sorting, units blurring together in play, etc. Once a unit is fully painted the base tops will be properly finished, leaving just the color coded rims.


The unit champion of each group is picked out with a Retributor Gold base top. (So as to avoid accidentally pulling them as casualties & screwing up issuing commands)
I'm not sure how I'll denote them once actually finished, but for right now I need them easily identified.

I fixed up Attelus' face after massacring my boy yesterday, and...he looks great! Although...although! He kinda looks sad; he's standing on a big tactical rock...so anyway, he started BLASTIN' his autopistol with his trademark inaccuracy, but he looks like he's going to cry rather than looking badass. He's probably sad because he sucks at shooting, and no matter how much I try, he still looks like a sad boi :/

My Scale 75 "Luxury Collection" box arrived today, and I began using the wet palette inside it and boy...I love it; so much better than my makeshift one—just a joy to use. I also began painting one of my Warlocks too! And dark blue and dark green shouldn't work together, but it seems to...somehow. The sculpts are a joy to paint.

Had the games night with the kids, and boy oh boy, was it crazy noisy and intense. We played Assassinorum: Execution Force, and it was fun, but a girl began hitting herself after she killed a cultist as the Callidus Assassin (I had my new Attelus as a stand-in as the mini broke and I couldn't repair her, unlike the Callidus he can go "invisible" due to Farseer Faleaseen's power), which I didn't know what to about, but she stopped, eventually.

Over the past few days, I've been organising and cleaning up my hobby room. It's much more tidy now, and my paint pots are in a drawer rather than dominating my desktop. I also did some green stuffing on minis that refused to be glued together and broken off bits. I've also worked more on my Warlocks and Attelus, who I think I'm finally happy with. Took some photos.

I did a bit today; tried to use my airbrush to prime a couple of models using an airbrush primer paint, but the airbrush kept getting blocked; it's because some of the paint had hardened to little bits around the nozzle and maybe inside the bottle too. Also, more progress for my Warlocks; they're almost finished, which is cool.

Did a bit today, and I made more progress on my Not-Lelith Hesperax vs Chaos Space Marine (who is now obviously Not-Lucius the Eternal) diorama I bought from Etsy ages. Not-Lelith Hesperax is a beautiful mini, better than any of her GW counterparts, I think...

















I used Black Templar Contrast Paint on her bikini and Flesh Tearers Contrast Paint on her hair; it took me ages to paint using Contrast paint, much longer than normal acrylics, but I think her hair looks great! Since taking these photos, I dry-brushed her armour and bikini and fixed a few other things.

Struggling about in Asmos territory.

Am I allowed to lowkey vent a bit?

Hugely annoyed that a friend of mine who agreed to build me a rotation platform (for shooting videos with my big camera) now suddenly backed out..
I don't want to buy anything online because I don't trust the quality nor want to have to go roundabout refunding if its not what I ordered..

Flipping hell man, i just finally finished my custom sculped wraithknight head and glued it on the WK being now finished and was looking forward for making my first rotation-video (with that new platform) with that unit ASAP..

And now I gotto wait till tomorrow to talk to him again and insist that incase its the material costs .. IDC about paying double triple or quadruple the otherwise online cost, I just want that flipping rotation platform (again) ASAP..

Aaaargh!!

Also on a different note and tone..

Kitbash of my super special brawler HT is looking good, greenstuffed his wings to the upper back-vents (removed) and put some Fleshborer hives on his lower arms and will put the whip and big blade (most likely anyway, couldn't find anything else that really fitted this bash tbh, would've preferred the rifle looking gun but the tube arm no longer fits over the shoulders of the bottom arms ayyy) aaaand the head will be very special, kitbashed aswell suprisingly connecting with some parts I never imagined prior.

Lastly (almost forgot) I FINALLY have a good lightbox/photostudio with internal lightring so no more photography problems thank the Sun!

Had the Tabletop gaming night today. We finally finished playing Assassinorum: Execution Force which ended in the kids' victory; thanks to my advice Attelus went invisible behind the sorcerer and the Vindicare Assassin (who was being proxied by Larkin as I'd accidentally left the Vindicare Assassin mini at home) Hit him in the back for two out of three resilience then Attelus backstabbed the leader, missed. But the girl playing him used a poison blade token to re-roll and managed to kill the sorcerer. This was by the 10th turn, which is a quick game of Assassinorum. The kids had fun, which was the most important thing.

I did a little more work on my Lelith diorama and have been trying to siv the primer, but it hasn't been working well at all. Will try it another way later.

More progress on the not-Lucius the Eternal for the diorama. He's actually quite fun to paint was hesitant to start at first, unsure how to paint his armour, but I just lunged into it, and I'm happy with him so far. I also got sick of trying to re-glue my Callidus Assassin back on her foot, so pinned her on instead, and it looks okay. Might try to readjust her a bit; she is my 2nd favourite of the four main temples, so deserves more work!

Not too much today began painting one of my Chaos Marines (yay, bronze trim lol, so much more on the newer Chaos Marine minis). I also managed to almost finish my Not-Lelith vs Not-Lucius the Eternal diorama, and I'm very happy with it! If anyone deserves this horrid fate, it's Lucius the Eternal, lol, although he's probably enjoying this. I was glad I got some GW Blood for the Blood God Techincal paint from a hobby shop a few months back. It's an excellent paint.

Doing this is inspiring me to start making another diorama of Attelus and his allies fighting on the surface of a dead world against cultists.
