Happy anniversary! Ten years is a long time! It's inspiring to see your army shots, so many lovely grots everywhere. The overall impression is surprisingly coherent for a ten-year project.

Syro_: Thanks! The stompa is one of those models I'm looking towards finishing. It's been languisign in WIP-hell for 5 years or so I think .

lindsay40k: thanks, I'll give that a go! I just can't get those struts to look right in my mind...

inmygravenimage: Thanks! And right back at ya, apparently

Pomander Cask: Ten years with quite big breaks in between, mind you . As for coherency: I spent some timing getting my colour choices right and experimenting. Shades might differ subtly, but the voerall colour them has remaind solid for these 10 years.

Yorkright: Thanks! And I ahven't shown my Orc army yet, though I have quite a big one for WHFB .

Captain Brown: Thank you! I agree it takes a while, but I love seeing the whole army arrated before me.

So, some pore progress, onto to the next ten years

Some random WIPS today, as is pretty much standard:

First off, the finished SAG krew:



Work is progressing on the SAG itself, I hope to show the complete model soonish

Also, a doomchicken, awaiting its controller:




And here's the controller, with two more friends, PIP:



Enjoy!

There's something about stompas that make them hard to finish. Painting them is intimidating for me, with so much surface area to cover. I have three scratch built stompas that have been sitting primed for a year or two. So, you're in good company

inmygravenimage: thanks, on both accounts!

Yorkright: For 40K, I have imperial guard, Night Lords, and my beloved grots. For the world that was, I have: High Elves, Orcs and gobbos, Chaos warriors, Tomb Kings, Empire, Brettonnia, and Chaos dwarfs. Maybe I'll post pics at some point, but most of these were painted before dakka even existed

Syro_: Well, I got the basecoat on.. It's just that I had to add ridiculous amounts of detail everywhere...

Briancj: If you start from fresh, sure. But I'm a stickler for matching colour throughout the army...

Dr H: Thanks!

For today, some random stuff I cobbled together while prepping for LARP this weekend

First off, I finished the DoomTurkey, adding a banner that suited the look of the red gobbo:


Then, some more doomchicken handlers:


Since I'm short left hands for grots, I made a bionic one .


And to finish off, another counts-as bommsquig:




Hope you guys liked the pics!

Bionic grot hands, next, he says- too cool! And your boom-squig- now a doom turtle?

All nicely done- a great, nicely focused and balanced army.

Well done on the Doom Turkey, just in time for Thanksgiving holiday over here in the states .

Great detail work on the grot bionics.

Doom Turtle , hope it’s at least a teenage robotic doom turtle.

CommissarKhaine,

I understand why you are doing a counts-as bommsquig. There really is not anything out there that makes a good matching squig like creature without it being just as expensive as buying the AOS box of them. That I have been able to find at least.

Cheers,

Hiya folks, slightly over a year since I posted here.. Time to get going again methinks. Not sure how long it'll last, but this really is an army I always return to at some point, so this thread will slowly continue to grow at its own steady pace.

Traditionally, let's start off with answering a year-old replies

Meer_Cat; thanks! bionic hand grot is getting some paint, it's drying while I type this

Theophony: Thanks, it might even get painted by next year's thanksgiving

Gitsplitta, Captain Brown, Midget Gems, Camkhieri, Archer: thanks!

A year has passed since I posted here; lots of stuff happened irl. Some good, some not so good, but all eating away at my hobby time. Lately, time has been at less of a premium, the spark has been rekindled and I started doing some work again, so I figured I'd share it with the nice people of dakka.

First off, a fix of an old model. The green apparition on my weirdgrot kept breaking off, so I added an additional support, making it look like he's drawing energy out of the earth:



Next off, I actually finished some models (shocked gasps can be heard across the galaxy!). I painted 3 of my mek guns that had been undercoated orange, getting them to the finished stage:




I fixed the wheel since taking these pics, glueing it on a tad straighter






I've got 5 mek guns painted now, they just need some more krew added. Next up will porbably be some grots, and maybe expanding my air force. Stay tune,d I hope you guys enjoyed the pics!







A Squeaky Waaagh!!

Good to see you again, Commissar!

The mek guns look excellent, and your solution to the weird grot problem very elegant. Love the colors too- I remember those (although it doesn't _feel_ like a year).

Welcome back.

Meer_Cat: Thanks. Doesn't feel like a year to me either, but then, it's been a strange year in all...

Arakasi: Thanks, good to be back

So, for today some paint on some grots, and a start on my waaagh banner. The skin is a bit greener then on my other grots, mainly cause my mix I use separated and I basically put on a green wash first Still, a sepia follow-on wash added some nice depth!



I also started adding some paint to the old (and updated) red gobbo mini, which will count as a banna bearer:



The flag is just orange for now, but I'll be adding plenty of blue symbols:




Tonight I'll just undercoat some stuff me thinks, getting everything up to par while watching the star wars movies with half an eye (I managed to get my wife into them, she's really taken a shine to them). So, expect plenty of orange pics soon

Syro_: thanks! It really doesn't feel like a year... More one of those 'I turned my head and it was gone' moments. Always amazed that people actually remember the models... Loving it!

Yorkright: Thanks, plenty of vibrant stuff for this army . It's kinda weird though, I don't always paint like this (my IG are pretty muted for example), but the grots really lend themselves well to this style.I did start wargaming in GW's 'red period', might have something to do with it

Gitsplitta: Thanks Gits, glad to be back


When it comes to painting, some ups and downs today. On the up side, I finished some of the grots I started in the post above.

Two more mek gun crew are fully painted:




Their skin is more green then my other grots, but I likes this mix. I added more goblin green to the mix instead of my old, sadly dried out knarloc green, and it gave an interesting effect, a lot brighter and healthier-looking, toned down and enriched by the washes.

The two grots with remotes got finished as well:



the snakebite leather contrasts works nicely over grey, I have to say. The drones they'll be handling had a bit of a painting mishap, as detailed below...


So far, the good news. I also managed quite the facepalm-worthy feat. Besides the grots, I also started undercoating a bunch of vehicles with the airbrush. I grabbed a paint pot I thought was filled with instar IV17 (also known as 'not Macharius Solar Orange'), and got to work. Everything went well, till I realized the next morning I hadn't used IV17. Not that bad, just grab the right paint, the coat I gave it was a bit darker, it'll be a shading effect, right? Right, and it acutally worked out that way, till I grabbed my thinner, which turned out to be white spirit, to thin the paint. Thinner will do that. White spirit will turn it into a gooey blob. And of course it was the last of the instar paint...Lesson here kiddos: watch your work .

Still, no man overboard:


Still, the minis are OK,I ordered new instar paint, and I learnt that my FLGS will be stocking vallejo paints, so it's not all bad. Feel free to laugh, by now I can laugh with it as well .

A Squeaky Waaagh!!
