Really epic blog here Camkierhi, so many wonderful things, I know I've checked out your work many times over the last few years.

Very impressed with how the Grot Sculpt came out. The Dozer Blades are looking very good. Keep up the awesome work

Not where I should be

Well Firstly thank you all for the kind words, hoping desperately to have not lost my audience.

RL kicking my butt, but that's not for here.

ORKS!!





Spent some time trying to get my juices flowing, part of which was to carve out a little desk space for a painting zone.


And in the tradition of Cam, here is a helpful tip I think I might have shared before,....

Ages ago I watched a youtube and the guy said the most brilliant words I have heard in years....STIR your paint, don't shake it. I have a lot of the GW paints and mix paints into small jars etc, and I remember the words of wisdom very well. I no longer suffer the eternal issue of paint clogging up the lid, wasting paint that sticks to the lid, can't unscrew pot lid cus of paint, these are all behind me. But to help this along I did a little bodging..

Took a electric coffee stirrer, modified it a bit and hey presto, I get perfect paint every time.


Because it was a little too powerful, I replaced one battery with a copper wire and this has slowed it down perfectly.



Thank you so much for looking, I hope to resume normal service shortly.

Here's to a speedy and happy resolution to all RL issues.

Meanwhile: an electric coffee stirrer? Is that really a thing? I like your re-purposing of it much better. Paint is like a martini, better stirred than shaken. ( Bond, James Bond was an ignoramus. )

And good start on the boyz.

Thanks guys, yeah they are a thing, never had one for "coffee", however bought a bunch when I saw them in the Pound shop.

Really nice to get a brush in hand tonight, bit of progress....




Got to add, one of the nicest pleasures was painting with a nice new brush....


Fantastic.

oh and here is a quick shot of the stirrer as bought...


Once again thank you for looking in and as always C&C welcome.

Cool tip - and saves on agitator beads too! I think I will be using this in the future, although probably sans electric coffee stirrer, modified or not. Does it make a real difference to manual stirring?

Oh, Orks (Orcs?) are coming along nicely too. Face in particular.

It's hard to imagine you loosing your audience Cam. I had totally forgotten about your little electric paint stirrer, i think I do remember you sharing far back in your blog, but I'm glad you shared it again. And your tinkering with it is genius, I don't understand electricity well enough to think of stuff like that.

I think the stirrer needs to be made into something.

True Ork fashion, not only did they loot one battery out of the coffee stirrer, but they looted the stirrer as well .

Fun fact my auto correct changed Ork into PRO , they knew I was in Cam’s thread.

The only way to loose this audience is for you to change directions while our jaws are on the floor .

Well, Gits, Cam built a windmill, a working windmill. I suppose the stirrer -- Still dumb-founded that such a thing exists. How lazy can a person be? -- could have any number of uses. I suspect he'll astound us with something.

He always does

I've always stirred my paints. But I just use old paintbrush handles (previously lengths of sprue).
Shaking would do nothing to some of my paints; some can be turned upside-down for quite a while without "leaking" through an open top.

Great work on the Ork, Cam'.

Hi folks, thanks for the wonderful comments.

@ Arakasi, much quicker and thorough I think.

OK not much of an update, only got to sit down today for the first time since last visit, so I am afraid only got this guy finished up.



Thank you for looking, and all C&C welcome.
