Its been a while since I last posted, been having a lot of PC problems. I've not been idle though I have a ton of minis to show you that I've been working on over the next few days.

First are some models I've painted for Paleo Diet which is a solo skirmish game based in prehistoric times.

The first is my warband which was painted a while ago, the pictures no the best, nothings changed haha!



And here are some Raptors I've painted for the same game, there's some dinosaurs next in my painting queue as its looking like I'll have all the models painted for this before Frostgrave.



All being well I'll be back tomorrow with more pictures

I look forward to catching up on all your blogs!

Glad to see you back posting, have always enjoyed your painting and model choices (the games you play are different to mine so I get to live vicariously through you).

The cavemen are AWESOME such great models and really have that proto-human look without looking silly.

The Dinosaurs are terrific as well. Love a Utah Raptor. How did you paint them? I really like the green.

Thanks Archer yeah musty agree they are the best proto-humans I could find lovely models.

I may have an airbrush now so that would be the trick on the blends on the raptors, I would have to check which greens they were, I painted them a while ago.

Thanks, There's three huge dinosaurs waiting to be based and painted on my work space at the moment.


----------------------------------------------------------

Ok here's the next round up on the painting front this time we have all the models over the last few months I've been painting for Frostgrave, still haven't painted all the models required yet!

First up is another Thug for my Warband



Then we have a few bits of scenery and Objectives









And then the monsters, there is an additional 20 Gnolls as well but I don't seem to have a picture of them but they weren't that good anyway!











I thought I would finish with the minotaur really proud of him.

These aren't on order that I painted them but you can see the improvement as I get back on track which I'm now happy with with the models you'll see over the next few days


Gir out!

Thanks Gits varied it is for sure!

So today I have something a bit different, this was a present from a close friend for Christmas that I painted up, its the Slave 1 Revell kit, was really fun to paint and was really good experience for using my airbrush although I'm still a long way off mastering that!!!



Nearly upto date now, there's a mega update for tomorrow!

Love the DnD bits and bobs! I must get around to painting my stuff - always better to have a fully painted encounter

Thanks for sharing

Yeah it is, I decided to paint all the models for the perilous dark solo missions before starting to play them, I didn't realise it was so many models!

This is the last update bringing us up to date and its a big one, two models I painted for my dad for his porch so they don't have bases but they do have attitude!

Both from MIercie Miniatures

Gol Gul, Barrow Spider





The second is Selkiias Skorpion Major







I thikn my painting is now back on form after these two, really happy with how they came out!

That spider is creepy. Would be hard pressed if you just walked past it to not think it was real.

Yeah it is well creepy I don't like spiders myself, my dads going to put it in his porch for that exact reason!

yeah there is I think that was perfect timing!

Thanks they are both really nice models, thanks for the Instagram follow, I must admit I find it a lot easier to post on there straight from my phone so it tends to get more progress updates.

Well these would be terrifying until one remembered they had been painted! Scary enough on the screen when I had the forewarning they were painted...
