That's a bang up paint job Maharg, the weathering effects are excellent. Best of luck in the comp!

Pace was picked up and the marine is now finished, so this will put an end to the run of the same picture of a marine with almost imperceptible changes! I am pleased with how the armour turned out, struggled slightly with getting photos to show the correct colour, these aren't bad but not quite red enough when viewed on my computer (looks about right on my phone though, maybe my computer is the issue?). I struggled with the freehand chapter symbol on the right shoulder - fiddley wing pattern combined with the need for symmetry was too much for my skills. I gave up trying to get it perfect, instead I tried to hide the mistakes with the application of battle damage. Not sure I got away with it







Now to decide whether I can be bothered to paint the rest of the Indomitus marines like this or if I need to go for something a little less time consuming

For carryover!

A cracking job on BA Baracus, such a lovely deep red, awesome weathering and great freehand. You should be proud of him.

Awesome job on the BA - some fantastic clean work with weathering over the top, rather than a mess of 'weathering' to disguise faults. You should be very proud of him

Thanks for sharing

A belated thanks for the comments everyone.

It's been a while since my last post, mainly due to a lack of painting enthusiasm. April was spent mainly staring at and not finishing this guy, who has only got as far as base coating and shading

I'm not a fan of painting larger models anyway and the prospect of trying to do my best paintjob for the painting challenge on such a model was a little too much. Come the last weekend of April I was already considering changing when some better weather allowed for some outdoor gaming leaving no time for him, so I quickly knocked out this dwarf instead

Lessons learnt here were not to try new techniques (aging copper/brass and OSL in this case) on a last minute model but at least I got something painted in the month.

May saw my enthusiasm return, with models built for several projects though very little finished. Just the painting challenge entry actually finished

First new project is a small ogre force with a giant for use in Oathmark. Odd choice given my dislike of large models, but I'm hoping the relatively simple models and not pushing the painting standard too high will make this easier. I also find this more preferable than rank after rank of normal infantry. I'm not sure how well this will play in the game, but if it doesn't work out they can be double as a Destruction force for AoS. I started painting some ogres but had to pause to get something in for the painting challenge


Chatting with a friend about playing some new games, we decided to each paint up and host a new game or two each this year. I'm starting with Frostgrave and have built up most of a warband using various Empire models, just a couple of halberdiers still to be built.

Some of these will be my painting challenge entry for the month to get the painting moving. For the other team I'm going to use a few chaos models I already have painted with a few new additions


A mere two weeks after the new game discussion, my mate ran a game of Gaslands. Fun game and before I knew it I was in possession of quite a few Hotwheels cars. Two finished so far (and the first non painting challenge finished models for several months



with another on the painting desk

and a few more being built


Hopefully I can resist building more and more cars (It's really good fun!) to move some of the other things along. That's all for now, thanks for looking

Good to see you back. I like the almost undersea look for the dwarf. Gaslands cars are always fun to see. Yours are great. Good luck with the fresh projects!

Quite a varied update Maharg. The dwarf looks great especially for a rush job. The GrifHorse thing is taking shape, and the black Stormcast suits him well. The gaslands stuff does look pretty cool too.

Thanks Youwashock. I was aiming for a nautical look for the dwarf so good to hear that came across

Thanks Gobert, hopefully I can finish some of these this time!

Great progress Maharg.

Loved the Ratskins.

Thanks Captain Brown. I thought you'd like the old Necromunda. I really need to finish up the rest of the gang before I forget how I did them. I've also got some plans to convert up a few more, though not sure what models to use as the base.

Thanks IGtR=

It's been slow progress here but I've at least made a start on the Frostgrave warband with this wizard.

First time painting flames (I don't really like fire, smoke etc sculpted on models and usually leave them out/cut them off where possible or convert) which seemed to go ok. The cloak might need a few extra highlights in places and I'm wondering if the fire should have some OSL around it, but then again it's good enough as is and I might just get going on the rest of the warband.
Other than that I've just been pottering around with some more gaslands builds with a few more cars ready for paint, no pictures though

I love your Slaanesh color scheme at the start of the blog. The ratskins are also well done. It's always surprising how excellently painted minis bring back great memories. Keep up the good work.

Great update post and yes, Gaslands is very cruel in that you can amass an "army " very quickly. Having those cars in every bargain store for 1-2€ is not helpful
Fire wizard is looking cool (or rather hot)

Thanks Gobert. Warband is slowly coming together, thankfully there aren't too many models so I might actually finish this one!

Thanks Viterbi. Its a little too easy to get the cars...


Lovely base on the wizard Maharg.

Thanks Captain. I just bought some new basing materials and wanted to try them out. You may get sick of the stones and pink flowers on my minis over the coming months

Thanks Pointer5. I need to revisit those slaanesh marines - I lost interest because the coverage of the purple paint was terrible. I've now got the GW base colour which is a similar shade so no excuses now

Wizard is good. Perfect Bright College color scheme.

Thanks Youwashock

Love the skull on the roof of the red Jeep, very spooky effect

I like it too, unfortunately it wasn't intended and just the effect of the shading and first drybrush of the red. I have a feeling that further drybrushing will ruin the effect

Lovely updates. Gotta say those ratskins are my favourite, they're ace!

Thanks Flapjack



Not too much to show, but the Frostgrave band has made some preogress. First up a couple of soldiers:

and some thugs

I've also built a couple more soldiers and made a start on the thieves


Thanks for looking
