Slowly, yet steadily, moving forwards. The first 5 man squad is like 96% done! Need to finish the bases, varnish and maybe add some verdigris.

Dread is almost done too. More highlights, scratch marks, some hoses, gemstones, varnish and transfers.



I quite like how the bases turned out, though not sure whether to paint just the letters or are surrounding them as well.

Bases are stunning. Just the letters would be enough IMHO, maybe with more pronounced cracks.

Bases look cool, I'd darken up some areas with either grey or maybe blue glazes and call it done !

I did try darkening one of them with black glaze before reading your comment. Will definitely try a blue one as well, might turn out interesting.

A crap photo, but this small force is *almost* finished. Ixion Hale needs his head and Misericordia painted. Galatus needs them couters fixed and one of the Sentinels is missing a sword, so will have to paint that up too. And bases. Bases for everyone! That’s pretty much all, until I can move on to either Aquilon termies, Achillus dread or Pallas grav attack

CragHack,

While the picture might not do them justice, looking at some of the earlier shots mean this is a really nice force.

Cheers,

Cannot wait to see what you do with Valdor. Also the metallic red on the shield is lovely.

Thanks for the comments!

Yeah. i’m actually thinking about investing into proper lightbox...it just makes them pictures look soo much better. That is, if I could get past the price without thinking about better options to buy something.

The metallic red is now, sadly, very limited edition Damn you, Forgeworld...And Valdor is pretty much the last one in line, mostly because I don’t play anything bigger than Mortalis and by bringing Valdor there... well, I guess I could bring him alone vs 1k pts of Deathguard and still come on top

Been slacking for several says now...Played a Mortalis game on Saturday againt Deathguard.



And put some paint on Pallas Grav-attack.


But still haven’t finished anything from my previous to do list. So I still have to:

1. Finish painting bases.
2. Paint Hale’s head.
3. Paint one more sword for Sentinel Guard.
4. Paint some gemstones on Galatus dread.
5. Add transfers on Galatus shield and shoulder pad.

Vs the new season of Diablo 2 ladder. Bleh,

Thanks. It's quite hard, though. For example, I'm now almost at the finish line with this Pallas, though I'm just torn how should I do the underside. Should I add gold parts, or should I leave it whole silver...
On one hand, it adds more details... On the other - the whole thing is already soo colorful. Gah!

Sold the Pallas. Couldn't live with all the fails

Started painting some 30k Thousand Sons, bought a crap tone of Mechanicum and Dickbikes. Painted some terrain..

Actually, I quite like painting it. It's just so relaxing, there's no need to be uber careful, no need to fix any tiny detail or worry about imperfections. Just a slap with a sponge here and there, and it's done!

This needs some stencils, like dates, dedications, kill marks and "da bad grot wuz here!" Very toxic on the inside, I like that.

Stencils could be cool, yeah

So now I have...

6 Lake Town houses.
The big red building, that's being slowly painted by a very nice chap. Bless him.
And a quite large - glue in progress - Cathedral to build...

Wanted to take Lair of the Astromancer the previous day. Unfortunately it was out of stock, gah :/

Some more progress on Cathedral. Need some mdf plate as base for this monstrosity...

Boom...
So, this is my current backlog of terrain I should, someday, paint. +the new Herdstone, +one more bunker, + some more defense lines.

Between me and my neurotic perfectionism, trying to paint some Thousand Sons and, now, some Shadespire as well.

Damn.

Envy is not even beginning to express my feelings. So much cool plastic! Makes me want to start some small 40K gang or at least something that can pass as such... Looks grey... err... great, but really needs some support. These cathedral halves should be half a kilo each at least.

The biggest problem is when you start running out of shelf space to store all that terrain

Pre weathered and added a layer of Dark Reaper on the flooring. Quite a productive day.



Also, finishing a smoll squad of 5 Khenetai Blades... what’s left is vendigris effect, transfers, bases (durr), a touch of black onto shoulder pads and belts.

Thanks Ironically, I stopped painting that piece of terrain the same day I posted here.

Tried doing some Sekhmet terminators, but man, I just overthink too much. I/e, a regular - normal - person would take parts and glue them together. I, on the other hand, have to spend a couple of days trying to find the coolest looking combos :/

I did make some OKayish looking bases though.

What can I say? Gritty! And very fitting on that tabletop too, although, perhaps, it is too clean. Horizontal surfaces usually get dusty and rusty first, but here most of the tear and wear (weather...) was on the walls. Anyway - great results! Will be looking out for the Herdstone...

Thanks and thanks! Starting strong this year: improving our gaming room in several ways: adding LOTS of light and storage space for the ever increasing terrain pile!





As for my personal plans...I will be very, very happy if I manage to finish x5 Sekhmet terminators until the end of this month
