You made quick and excellent work of Ghaz and his boss Makari! Is it just me or does the first Dothraki on the left look like his horse is about to fall down? It could be the angle of the pic though? Refardless, an awesome paint job as ever!

I hadn't really seen just how massive the new Ghaz is, he's a whopper! And a great paintjob too

ASOIAF minis look intriguing, I like the use of movement trays.

Brilliant job on the mighty grot leader... and his sidekick isn't looking to shabby either Seriously great work and also love seeing your ASOIAF updates, those tattoos to differentiate them as veterans is a neat idea.

Wow, new Ghaz is a proper beast. Lovely paintjob, the metals in particular look fantastic.

Cheers everyone, I was very happy with Ghaz myself so am glad that you gents like him.

Now it is time for my self imposed end of the month update post. In the past week i have done a few minis, all from ASOIAF.

First up are the Free Folk Skinchangers. This is a unit attachment that pre game you decide whether a bear, wolf or hawk is added to the unit:























I also got a couple of the Neutral Heroes 1 boxed set done in the form of Roose Bolton and Petyr Baelish:









All told that brings me to 36 miniatures painted for the month with 136 for the year thus far. Barely any 40K or AOS this month but I am glad with what i have done:



Thanks for looking.

Your quality and quantity of output never ceases to amaze me! Really great job on such a variety of minis. The bloody snow on the bears base and around his mouth is really cool!

Masterful work again. You definitely have the nack with these models. They really match up to what i remember of the show (which isn't that much)

Thanks everyone.

Oooofph, that last set of pictures was rough. Apologies but I do not know if the next lot will be better as it is cloudy with bouts of sunshine in between so the light has been very variable.

So what have I been up to? First up is the ASOIAF section.

I did a unit of Neutral Bolton Bastard's girls, these were quite quick to do as the doggos did not require much work. I have gone with a pink scheme for most of my neutral stuff and it is not as jarring as I feared. A pretty cool unit for just 2 human and 2 dog sculpts:









I also did a Neutral hero in the form of Vargo Hoat, a commander of a mercenary company and the man who orders the amputation of Jaime Lannister's hand. Not the best of sculpts (this is from Neutral Heroes 1) but not too bad either:





So just one last character from ASOIAF to show off, this time a man who at the time of the miniature has two hands...The Kingslayer Jaime Lannister. Eurgh...to be honest these photos make him look awful and sloppy. I like him a lot better in real life:





So onto 40K.

First up is a Genestealer Cult Sentinel armed with Heavy Plasma Cannon. I am happy with this one, even though now relatively ancient i have always likes the Sentinel miniature so had some nice easy fun with this one:











I may actually get my half finished Ridge runner after being inspired by this one.


Never one to jump on a bandwagon I did a couple of test schemes on some Necron Warriors that I had lying around, I also tested out using a texture paint for the base:





That led me to put in a little order for a few Necron bits and i have started painting them already. First up is a Necron Overlord:









I also got a unit of 5 Immortals with Tesla painted up:









And my "army" thus far:



And up next:



That takes me to 23 miniatures painted for the month and 159 miniatures painted for the year thus far. With over half the month to go I am past my target of 150 by the end of June so that is good progress. I hope to be more active on the forums as well as I have been very quiet the past fortnight odd. Anyway, thanks for looking.

Feel that heat? It's you. Tearing through these minis.

GSCSentinel looks fantastic. Purple accents on the Necrons are paying off big.

Those Necrons have come out great. Can't wait to see you tackle the new stuff if you're planning to, I love the real Space Undead vibe they're shooting for and your muted, slightly grimy scheme should fit that wonderfully. Bases look solid too, I do enjoy the technical paints for that sort of look. And as always, the speed is as impressive as the quality!

I’ve never been a big fan of the Necrons, but the new models and you’re paint work really are tempting me.

The Bastard’s girls are looking great as well.

Keep up the pace, you have to paint for me , too busy printing to paint.

The purple accents are very good. Slightly biased because my army is purple, but purple works very well for Necrons!

That Sentinel is very crisp and great start on the Necrons. The spot colors really bring the models together.

Excellent stuff as ever, the necrons look cool and have got me even more tempted by the new box. When I saw the minty green cables on your test pieces, I was kinda hoping they’d make the final cut, but the bright green looks great too!

Thanks for checking in everyone, it is always appreciated. A bit more 40K Xenos progress in the form of GSC and Necrons.

First up is my final GSC Achilles Ridgerunner. I am kind of considering trying to paint up my remaining GSC miniatures (around 20 odd) before 9th edition drops. No real reason but it would be nice to remove one army from the painting queue.

Anyway, my Ridgerunner. This one is armed with the Lascannon esque Heavy Mining Laser. I still adore this miniature even after painting my third:








And here is the full unit of three:





I have also finished another Necron HQ and an elite unit. First up is a Necron Cryptek, a fun miniature to paint and quite dynamic for a reanimated ancient robot. Rather than straight gold I tried to add a bit of ancient patina with a green wash on the Canoptek cloak:









I also painted up a unit of sword and board Lychguard, all cool and fun:









WIP wise I am currently painting up the Croissant of Doom, the Doom Scythe:



Thanks for looking.

I really like the Cryptek's cloak design, these newer Necrons are really drawing me in.

The Lych guard with the sword and board look like a really solid unit.

The plane is making me hungry

Ah, man, you’re not helping me resist new minis. Seeing your necrons is probably the tipping point for me buying the 9th edition boxset. Awesome work though!

Cheers everyone, the Necrons (especially the new ones are very enticing).

A day early but here is my progress report for the month of June. So what have i got done since my last post?

First up I completed the Doom Scythe, really happy with this one but the it is a pain to photograph. Surprisingly easy to paint up as well:









I also got my hands on a Canoptek/Tomb Spyder, apparently they are useless in game but it is a fun little model. The ball flying stand is also great for poseabilty, no idea why they did not use these on modern flying infantry like the Inceptors and the like. Modelling wise I did not use a few of the extra arms on the bottom of the miniature as it was a bit too busy for me. I am especially happy with the green orb on these, a green/medium wash really helped to bring this together:











Finally I got a unit of 5 Deathmarks painted up. This is made as the same kit as the Immortals. I love the single lens head on these:









So all told this month I have made a small Necron army of 19 models, 2 HQ, 1 Troop, 2 Elites, 1 Heavy Support and a flier:



So this month that totals 37 miniatures painted, bringing me to 173 miniatures painted for the year:

Those Deathmarks are some sweet models. Great job, again. Especially the Spider and DM. Good work going the extra mile with all the orbs on the Spider's tummy.
