Heh, thanks

Maybe I should just have primed black, painted the skin white, then yellow then wash...

Yeah, I am planning to break it down into manageable chunks in between other models...

Very nice. Is that the plastic version or the metal version?

It's the plastic one - I used the plastic hobbits too, but not a fan of Aragorn or Boromir plastics, so I have the metals lined up for them.

Made a bit of progress on Weathertop - I filled the worst of the gaps left by my inept assembly, and added a few of the citadel vines around it.

I have finished 2 more old-school Orks - A Warboss (with terrifying Attack Squig!) and the final Nob:



I was thinking I could spray varnish and base these, then it snowed again all weekend... You can look forward to seeing them again, based, in a couple of weeks

That only leaves a Shokk Attack Gun left to paint for my Orks (oh, and the Dakkajet the mini Slinkies gave me for Christmas).

Next up, 4 Aragorns

My 2018 score is now 23, but I am still ticking along

Today we have 4 Aragorns done (except for basing, still haven't had good enough weather to get things spray varnished.






I am now working on a ford for the river, and the weapon arms for my Knight Warden...

My Knight's weapon arms are nearly done too, and next up after those will be the Shokk Attack Gun

The Shokk Attack Gun is finally done!



As with many of these RT Orks, I love the models, but didn't enjoy painting them for some reason... But he was the last one, so never mind! I do have a Dakkajet still to paint to completely finish off my Orks, though.

Next up (soon) will be 2 Boromirs, including one who doesn't look very well...

Cheers - Overall a very bland paintjob, just couldn't get enthused.

Today we have 2 Boromirs finished - Still not got around to spray varnishing anything as the weather has been mixed, so the queue to be varnished and based keeps on growing.

My regular gaming opponent is a big fan of buying already-painted models, and has acquired a force of 30k Sons of Horus.

So, having agreed to put together a force to play 30k with him, and being the sort of fool who wants to paint all his own models, I now have to get cracking on that.

When I saw the model of Dorn I knew I wanted to play Imperial Fists, and their special detachment with lots of shields appeals as it will make it a bit more different from all my 40k marines.

So, I have stuck together my first 5 breachers:



And painted a Primaris (first marine I had to hand) as a colour test:



My aim is for quite a bright yellow, but heavily weathered. I think it's nearly there, need to work on the sponge weathering a bit to avoid getting such big splodges.


My 2018 count is now 33

A bit more progress on my Knight Warden. Now the leg plates are done (except for transfers, which I plan to do all together at the end):

So, weather was finally good enough to get some varnishing done, so part 1 of the baseathon is complete!

Some Stormtroopers/Scions and their officer:
