Not where I should be

Thank you guys,

@Shas Think TRex would wet itself if it saw this thing coming.
@DrH, Thank you, indeed sharp nasty bits everywhere.
@Josh, Yes I did, but it mainly the camera and the difference with flash and not that is making the colours a bit squiff, right now these pics look very purple underneath, it is pinker, will get final shots in the daylight I think.

And a little progress....



It sure is a beasty..


And whilst waiting for it to dry...
Couple misscasts...


A lick of paint..




Thanks for looking.

If that were real, it would make many wet themselves as it approached them!

Thank you guys.

@ DrH. Just take everything else out of life, you don't need a kitchen, Pot Noodles! You don't need TV, Dakka on Laptop! You don't need a bed, get a hammock hung in the bathroom! Then you have lots of space.
@ Shas Thank you.
@Gits, Thanks sir.
@ Joe, thank you sir, much appreciated.

And I have been doing stuff....

OK the big guy........

I don't believe my parents would have any good words to say about me turning the house into my workshop.

Lots of good progress.

I see no evidence of getting carried away there.

Digging those ruins. You've accomplished a lot there with very meager materials.

Flyant looks good. Color scheme made me think he has Joker DNA.

Thank you all, very much appreciated,

The Nid needs more work, I am not sure how, but I need to make the face pop! Will maybe get the courage to look at it the weekend.

In the mean time, did a little air drying clay work on the ruin floor......


And the crew (who are for the orky statue dio)...





Thoughts as always welcome, thanks for looking.

@ Alaricuk, Thank you,

OK, Orky statue is over on Ork blog, here is where it is at at the moment....


Been working on ruined building as well....



Still not really sure what this building is, maybe some form of Chapel, but not to conventional style I think, not sure, might end up being a public convenience yet!

Thanks for looking in.

looking very good, but i think it lacks a fireplace...

by the way... started painting with an airbrush recently...about paint consistency....mind showing a pic of a filled cup/ glas of your mixed ready to paint ...tho i am watching tuts on youtube...some advice from friends is 100% better

I know you asked Cam, but when I use a spray gun (to do cars and the like) I look for a consistency similar to milk. If that helps.

Thank you all,

@ Vik, generally, Archer has it spot on, most people say go for Milky consistency but it depends on the paint and the effect you are after. I am so far from an expert, you may be better asking one of the big boys, however with my little set up, I have 2-3 drops of water in the pot first then add 1-2 drops of paint (or one paintbrush full for GW) I mix it in the pot with a paintbrush. Do a little back blow mixing as well. Just stick your finger over the end of the brush and gently open the trigger, it blows bubbles into the paint and mixes it pretty good. Then I am away. I am very rough and ready, and loads of people use specialist thinners etc. I just use water. Got a tub full of windowlene glass cleaner to one side to clean it. It does what I want it too at this stage, and I am happy enough with the results. I never currently spray anything other than normal paints. GW or Game colour for the most part. The vallajo ones are very good. Hope that helps. Still think you would be better asking one of the proper painters on one of the popular blogs, would get more answers there.

Now what have I been doing......

My son wanted a new bed, so smashed the old one up and made this...


Going to furnish this with orks..

IG shelf looking bare, going to work on that...

Fantasy shelf looking bare, definately going to work on that....

And one day I will finish this....


Started on these Friday night, progress later...

They are these.......

Had them for years, just feeling like them at the mo....

OK back later, off to finish judging the LoER Comp, really making my head hurt....

Thanks for looking,.

Nice looking converts to the IG for Trenchers. Capitolian troops from the old Mutant Chronicles. Carapace armor so they would be grenadiers. Very cool Horned Rat
