Thanks everyone I'm working on the base at the moment but haven't had much time for painting, too busy at work!

I did dabble with my brushes last weekend and painted these little Treasure Chest's, I'm sure there is a fifth one hiding away but I couldn't find it!



Just taking things slowly to start with

I must admit I've not dared look in my painted minis box's since I moved over three years ago, I really dread what I'm going to find some models were just piled on top of one another for a quick exit. Just makes me feel ill with all the work I put in over the years. One day I will check them and repair but I think it will be a massive project, makes me feel queasy thinking about it not that I have anywhere to put them yet!

I finished my Death Guard Sorcerer today base is all done.

Really getting in the mood for painting at the moment which is cool







I started this big guy from Mierce Miniatures today, its Vaak, moraine beast. a big ice creature. one of the paints I was going to use has dried up so I've had to put an order in so no idea when that will turn up so I might move onto to something else but we shall see what the week brings. There was so much dust on this bad boy where it has lived on my painting area for years untouched.





I found another box of resin delights today from a kickster no idea now where they came. I've got a few boxes kicking round now so I'm not going to go short of models, just need to get some glue which is on order and primer which sees to be the holy grail at the moment!

Hope you all are doing ok

Time for a little update as we go further into lock down in the UK, I've decided to list some projects to hopefully kick me back into painting.

I've manage to source some black primer which is in stock, I've put in an order for two cans, its been like gold dust!

My parents dropped off a few things yesterday hobby related, I get all my post delivered to them, they love it!

A few models of interest





So thats Black Widow and Captain Marvel from Crisis protocol and a few models from Mierce Minatures.

But they are for later I want to pick up a few other Marvel models before I start painting them like Hulk and Venom, these are just for painting.

Project wise I will be looking into digging out my Betrayl Of Calth box set and painting that which will be a huge project but I think Space Marines might be the easiest way back into the hobby. I've thought long and hard what chapters to do them as, I dont want to paint the same colours as any of my other armies. So I decided to do the loyalists as Dark Angels and the traitors as Night Lords, I have already taken the Preator and contemptor out of the box and used them for other armies so will replace them with swanky FW versions Just need to wait for FW to open

Second project I'm really interested in doing is painting up forces for the solo Age of Sigmar rules. I already have an Undead army thats never seen the light so they will be battling it out. Looking forward to painting some trolls thats going to be great.

I also have one of the Elder Scrolls: Call To Arms: Bleak Falls Barrow Delve Set on order, no idea when that will arrive!

There was something else but I cant remember it which is why I'm writing this post so I dont forget!

I might try to get my hands on Black Stone Fortress as well as thats one player but its a tad expensive in one hit!

Does anybody know of any other solo player games that have cool models?

A restoration project today which goes back to March 2011 when I first made a come back to the hobby, this troll was the first model I started as part of a diorama but never finished.

With the new troll solo player campaign rules for AoS I decided to remove him from the diorama and re-base and touch him up (that doesn't sound right )for the first of my troll adversaries, I'm going to keep an eye out on ebay to see if any of his friends come up as it would be nice to have the original three sculpts in one unit!

So here he is in all his glory

Timothy the troll!







I hope you like him, I'm struggling to get any painting time in so may be investing in a lap painting station to see if that helps push me forward!

I love the old stone trolls, such classic and fun sculpts. Great job on him too

Lap painting stations? Why would you paint your lap? Are you some sort of exotic dancer? I just don’t get it

Tim for sure, thanks Dr H

A small update from today I took the time to do a bit of modelling outside

This critter had a nasty case of release mould which I had sitting around for the last five years, I cleaned him up again today and re-selaed (which took hours!) so hopefully when he next gets under coated he'll be ready for a lick of paint alongside his twin. I've ordered some special paints for these



Also today I put together this young lass Black Widow from Marvel Crisis Protocol, I don't have the game just intend on picking up a few minis to paint.



And thats my bank holiday Monday not much but I'm happy with what I've achieved.

I like big bugs and I cannot lie....hit the music

I like the marvel figs. I bought the core and a few others, but really haven’t looked at the game and some models are just sub par. If the deep cuts marvel x-men are good then I might use those instead.

I must admit some of them aren’t great, the deep cut ones look interesting I’ve not heard of them before.

Some WIP on my next model today Swamp Thing.

He looked a bit better before the wash so i'm going to go back and re-highlight all the vines again just to make him really pop.

I'm working on the base at at the moment, hopefully if all goes well it will have some cool water effects!



Hopefully I'll have some more progress soon

Cheers mt, was just doing the hazing this evening everything going well, went to add the water effects but they haven’t survived the test of time, one big white piece of resin! So sadly the wait starts as I need to order some more!

Well Swamp Thing is now finished I couldn't get Vallejo so went with AK Interactive water instead, must say its so much nicer and easier to use.

I also dug out my camera for some proper pictures, its amazing how much better it is than my Phone!





My parents were also kind enough to drop off all the stuff I've had sent there over the last few weeks.


I'just finished building the trolls today just before it started raining so they haven't been undercoated yet, typical but I'm hoping to have them done so I cant start painting on the weekend. I went for an menagerie of trolls from different places so it will be a nice mix!



With all these solo player rules comming out for different games its really giving me a buz as that was always my issue not having people to play now I don't need any!

Hope you are all doing ok and have lots of cool projects on the go.
