Looks amazing! Gonna go home and watch FOTR now because of you. Love the vines and the different colours in the stone textures.

Extremely kind, thanks! I'm overdue for a rewatch of the LOTR trilogy myself

My Knight is also now finally done, at last!




Couldn't think of anything too inspired for the base, so went with bits box explosion, painted as rusty metal

Taking my score to 64!

That's some nice, clean work on a really huge model. Are you really counting it as only one model for your yearly count?

Now showing Abyssals for Vanguard!




Painting total as of 8/17/2019: 99 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 36 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain and three fly holes and three farm buildings and a fire pit.

Thankee kindly, Josh

Nah, I awarded myself 5 points for Weathertop, and 6 for the Knight

Cheers, mate

Noooooo!

I got myself some transfer paper and printed these on a colour laser printer:


They worked quite well, but were more fragile than normal decals, and the yellow and white needed to be painted over by hand once the decal was on.

From the very large to the very small...

Painted a test Spitfire from the PSC Battle of Britain game. This is one of the original "soft" plastic ones with droopy wings - I have received my replacement "hard" plastic ones which are much much better, so I shall be painting those for use in the board game,



The roundels on the side are the stickers that came with the game, not happy with them as they didn't stick well and are too thick so I have ordered some decals to use instead on the actual game models.

Got another 3 Breachers up to the "nearly done" level - I will do the weathering/bases once all 10 are at this level:


I also did a test paint job on a base, I think it will do:

Thanks as always for popping in and taking a look

It's been a bit too hot recently to want to paint, but I have made some progress on some more LOTR terrain - A pool and wall for Moria:

Nice job with Weathertop, that's the Forgworld one right? Also, nice start on the Moria wall.

Also, killer paintwork on that knight....I've resisted buying the big 40k scale knights and titans, mostly because of the price and the amount of space they take up...but I will be getting my titan fix when Adeptus Titatnicus gets released next month!

Thanks very much!

Yes, it's the Forgeworld one, my wallet is still stinging from that purchase, but it is such a lovely chunk of resin.

AT looks great, we're going to be knee-deep in awesome Titan paintjobs soon, I'm sure

Love how Weathertop turned out. Nice carving on the wall, I'll be interested to see that painted. Always a fan of LOTR stuff. Thanks for sharing!

Cheers, Cleatus. Your wish is granted, as it's all done!

The weather got a bit cooler, and I found I was able to be arsed to pick up a paintbrush. I have now finished the Moria wall and pool, and also 6 Watcher in the Water tentacles to go in the pool and try to drag hobbits to their doom!

The Malcador Defender is finished!

Not the most exciting paintjob, but it fits in with the rest of my Guard tanks...



My 2018 score is now 77

That's a good score mate. And I love the retro World War vibe of the tank.

Thanks, old chap!

I got it for a steal on eBay, really nicely made from cardboard and such, with GW bits for the tracks and heavy bolters. Tarted it up with a rummage in my bits box, and I am v pleased with the final result!

Started on Legolas and Gimli now.

Review of the year 2018

Started well, but suffered a total loss of motivation in August and have got nothing painted since.

The previous years totals were:
2015: 81
2016: 102
2017: 152

This year, based again on my semi-random scoring system, I ended up with a score of 77. So a bit of a disappointment - However I still kept on gaming and reading Dakka, so it's just painting that suffered...

Here's the breakdown:

Imperial Guard
10 Scions
Malcador Defender

Imperial Knights
Carapace missile launcher
Knight Warden

Orks
Weirdboy
Painboy
5 Nobs
Warboss
Shokk Attack Gun

LOTR
14 Dunlending conversion rebases
Jetty for Buckleberry ferry
Gandalf!
Weathertop!
4 Aragorns
River ford
2 Boromirs
18 Wild Wargs
Wild Warg chieftain
Moria Wall
Moria Pool
6 Moria tentacles

Blood Angels
Dante

Battle of Britain game
1 test spitfire

Back from the dead, with the army of the dead...

Made a trip to Warhammer World with a couple of mates, and bought some Hexwraith Flame with a view to getting my Army of the Dead painted, and easing myself back into painting with a nice easy project.

I have 18 very nearly done, pics when they are finished.

Now I just need to find the King of the Dead model, somewhere in the loft
