A terror I have yet to experience personally. Best of luck with the repairs.

I was surprisingly calm about it, quickly seeing it wasn’t a big deal as it was just glue that had fractured. He’ll be back together in no time!

Hi CB, thanks for the tip. I’ve got some old citadel brown ink knocking about so I’ll give it a go next I’m at the hobby desk

In other news I left work early today and rather than resting on the sofa decided to take my RT and 2nd Edition metal Terminators out of their dettol bath. It was their second soak, but I think the big difference was me not using water on the brush. The Wolf Guard I’ll do as Space Wolves but the RT Terminators I plan to do as Crimson Fists. I’ve got some shoulder pad icons that I’m planning to use to create a press mould for their currently bare shoulder pads. I’ve never done it before, so I’ve no clue what I’m doing or how well it’ll go, but hey that’s what the internet is for, right?

Yep, It was like being a kid again seeing them in their naked pewter form! I hope I can do them justice!

I got a decent bit of hobby time last night and was very happy with the Grots and their muddy puddles.



I used slightly thinned PVA mixed with Army Painter wet mud and bone. Whilst wet they looked amazing, but as they dried the paleness of the PVA receded. I added some more bone colour and went to bed feeling quite chuffed with the flock and puddles.

Spoiler:



I even took their white background shots;

Spoiler:




Sadly the puddles dried out as the PVA went off so they lost their liquid appearance.



I wonder if neat PVA would work better or whether I’ll need to move to resin to get the effect I want. Still, I’ll call them done for now until I try more muddy puddles on my next Orks.

I’ll be heading back to Blackstone Fortress next with the Dreaded Ambull family. I need to get the heroes primed too so I can get painting them too.

Thanks for looking!

I'd say the mud puddles turned out pretty great! Awesome work, I'm excited for you to get started on that pewter!

I like how they turned out, bases look great. If you want the mud to have a sheen perhaps some liquid gloss coat?

Cheers MegaDave, I’ve gotta admit they look even better in a big ambling mob on the shelf! The pewter might be a way off, but I’m pretty excited too... they might have to jump the queue!

Cheers Yorkright, I’ll have a look at getting some gloss in my next order. I’m also after something to level off like a puddle would, maybe the gloss coat mixed with paint would do that?

amazingturtles wrote:Yup, I really like those puddle, and I'm looking forward to the ambulls!

Thanks turtles, the wet puddles look better imho, the dry ones look, well a bit dry! You’ll be pleased with this update then.

First the pics of the rest of the Orks; First up the Nob and the banner bearers (apparently Makari is the metal ones name and he’s getting a new mini soon) with the rest of the Gretchin,


The Nob on his own. Old Gobert can’t take the credit, this guy was only rebased and tidied up (but he still counts in my 2020 finished minis!)




Then some final ones of the Big Mek with his Shokk Attack Gun and his Snotling Ammo!





Tonight’s painting though was making progress on the Ambull and her babies. I’m sticking with the Gruffalo theme but decided to go with 2 browns; dark for her carapace and lighter for her fleshy bits. Then bone for her mandibles/terrible teeth in her terrible jaws, as were her turned out toes, but her knobbly knees will be black

Her kids got similar treatment, though I’m not sure on bone coloured wings? I realise now her antennae should have been bone too to match the Gruffalo’s horns I’ll get that sorted next painting session.

That’s all for today

Nice! That Nob is great, from the red power claw to the awesome banner. Old school all the way. Yup, that's Makari, Ghazghkull's personal grot. Ambull off to a great start. Liking the subdued scheme.

Those Orks and Gretchin are looking great together. The Nob especially draws the eye (ooh er !?!). It is the areas of yellow on your characters that really make them stand out, es9when stood amongst the meat shield, I mean valuable troops.

Arm bull is coming along nicely, the things like that and the upcoming Zoat make Blackstone Fortress a great addition to the range of games from GW.

Your old orks are a joy to behold Gobert and the extra effort put into the bases was well worth it. Any old school battlewagons in your collection for them to ride in?

Thanks ListenToMeWarriors, great use of the technical term “Meat Shield”. I had originally planned for the Grots to get some yellow, but the dry brush was too dry for it to show up too much, but I like the idea of the Grots being darker toned than the Orks.
Agreed, the Ambull is a cool mini and I’ll definitely be adding the zoat when he/she/they/it comes out. If the rest of the minis are anything to go by Zoat will be awesome!

Ezki wrote:The mud paddles look excellent! I think I have to loan that idea sometime in the future!

Loan away, if you get it to work better I’ll be borrowing the new improved version back! . Shokk Attack is probably one of the coolest minis GW have ever done imho. Seamlessly blending the grim dark, semi plausible tech and comedy in to one mini!

Welcome to my plog MacPhail! Shame you let your SAG go, would’ve been interesting to see what you’d have done now. The nostalgia is pretty high here, sorry for the teleportation through time!

Thanks Maharg, I’m pretty happy with how the little Grots came out! Sadly I don’t that’s any battle wagon for them, those things were so cool back in 2nd! They must go for a pretty penny if they come up on eBay now I reckon.

This week has been a bit of a show, so I’ve only just found some free time to do some painting tonight. I made a bit of progress on the Ambull and her babies. Mummy-Ambull got her antennae changed from brown and black to Bone ala The Gruffalo’s Horns. Then the whole model got a Bleached Bone dry brush all over. The Bone bits and face getting a white drybrush too. They then got a heavy wash of Agrax Earthshade. Mama then got her purple prickles nee egg-nodule type things painted. And here she is so far;



In the background you’ll see the Blackstone Fortress “Goodies”. Whilst waiting for the Ambulls wash to dry I did some more prep for these guys, mainly filing down lips on joints. Sadly it’s likely to be too windy to prime then this weekend. Hopefully they’ll get done soon.

Thanks for looking!

Well, it’s been a while, more illness, bad weather and work sucking! Sadly that means I’ve made scant progress of late. Last weekend I sat down to do some hobby time with my daughter. She finished up her batch of Grots whilst I prepped a few randoms for priming. I forgot to get picture of her Gretchin so will try to remember for my next post. She did pretty well for a first batch and her age (6), and wants me to base them like mine. I’ll do them with the next lot of Orks I do. She then asked what else she could paint so I’ve given her an Easy to Build Stormcast Eternal I was given at the local GW. She loved that, bit wanted more. Since most of my minis are ancient and have some sentimental value to me I found some cheap minis from a company called em4. They arrived this week and she asked me to get the dwarves ready for painting. For 21p each plus p&p I’m pretty impressed. The mould lines are pretty prominent, but clean up easily enough, though the vent port in the back isn’t great. They have certainly made my daughter happy, so I am too! I might even pinch one or 2 to have a go at painting them myself!

Tonight though I got my Ambull and her babies all done. I decided that her carapace didn’t need anything more than the drybrushing and wash it’d already had so just highlighted the claws and teeth before painting the tongue, eyes and highlighting the purple bits. I think she’s turned out pretty well , but I’ll let you guys decide for yourselves;





I finished her early in the evening so decided to paint something else. Seen as they were the only primed minis I have at the moment, I chose the 2nd Edition Space Wolves Iron Priest and Njal Stormcaller, both got their armour basecoated and highlighted. The iron priest had to be drybrushed as his armour is very textured, but it seems to have come out pretty well so far

I might skip the Agrax edging I did in my last Wolves as I can’t decide which look I prefer. Here’s a pick of the rest of the pack to help me decide;

Anyways, it’s late so off to bed for me, thanks for looking!

Nice work finishing off the space Umber Hulk. The single green node nestled in amongst the eyes is an interesting choice that I think really pays off. That Iron Priest model is such a classic. The helmet has always been good and he is just crusted in detail.

Space Umber Hulk! I like it, my youngest calls the Ogryn “Hulk Smash” so he’s finally got some hulking company! My inspiration for her was The Gruffalo, who has a green poisonous wart on the end of his nose. I was going to add my usual bright green as a highlight, but I decided I didn’t need to.
