Cheers everybody, am enjoying just pottering about hobby wise and have gotten a few things done. My base for my ATV arrived so I have done that, really improves the model IMO:







I also got miniature 300 done in the form of the Repulsor, my first Primaris tank. Lots of fun to paint, a pain to photograph!















As a rule I do minimum kit converting or kit bashes but did a little swap on a Necron lord and Noble, I just sliced them in half on the spine and mixed up the torsos and legs. I think they look pretty cool:



I was also lucky enough to get my hands on a set of the Space Marine Heroes 3 set. Just a few inter kit head swaps to differentiate them a bit:







Finally I did a couple of ASOIAF Stark miniatures, first up is one of the earliest and least regarded kits the Stark Bowmen. These guys are a bit shallow on details and a pain to paint, but they cost me £8 for the unit so I cannot complain. With these unit trays the overall visual impact outweighs that of the individual miniatures:





Finally is Brynden Tully, The Blackfish, a Stark attatchment miniature. He is an odd one, the scale is a bit off and seems a bit smaller than others in the range and the facial details are minimal so I almost had to paint his face on which looks a bit odd...but I like his pose and he is done *shrug*.





Oh and hobby diversion....

Blood Bowl should be arriving next week...oh yes!

That is one fine looking bling-wagon. Can't wait to see what you do with the BB minis.

Congrats on 300! A truly impressive number and the repulsor is a good milestone mini. The base for the ATV does improve the look quite a bit, worth the wait I think. I hope we get to see an end of year group shot and Armies to date pictures come the new year

The SMH3 lads look cool, I particularly like skull face and the grenade lobber. Are they minis from other kits or unique?

The Stark additions look good, the Bowman uniform works well and the Blackfish came out pretty well even if the depth of detail was a bit weak

@YWS: You certainly wouldn't miss it in the battlefield!

@Gobert, thank you Sir I certainly over achieved compared to what I expected. All of the plague marine heads are from the SM Heroes kit, just some swaps.

The champ is from the icon mini, the icon bearer head is from the plague spewer, and the plague spewer and grenade guy are from just bolter guys. Just a case of cutting off the locator nubs and putting them on the miniatures.

I was a bit too eager to get started in Blood Bowl so bought a human team, introducing my first two players for the Covenhafen Scramblers (alternatives to Scramblers are welcome...anyone?)

Covenhafen Contenders? It is at least alliterative Lads look great regardless, nice rugged style. Just about a 180 from #300, bless his golden hull Oh, and great call on the ATV base.

Congrats on finishing the 300! And powering past it already, great start in the Blood Bowl Team. Maybe Covenhafen Seals because of the hafen=harbor?
And I love grenade plague marine. His stance conveys such joy at being able to finally toss that grenade

Solid suggestions gents, maybe the Covenhafen Cardinals or is that too much of a basebally name? Failing that I am liking YWS suggestion of clubbers as it works on the pitch and for the off the pitch entertainment the night after a tough game.

@Viterbii, thanks for the German lesson...I took French at school so German is an alien language to me. Looking at the etymology of the word haven it is old Norse so has pretty much the same naval theme everywhere, with the odd the odd Biblical reference thrown in. The irony of Covenhafen is that it is based on my city of Coventry...the furthest place from any coastline in the UK!

As ever my impetuousness has led to an ebay purchase...not my picture but here are Grak and Crumbleberry:

Lots of excellent work here, LTMW!

I really like the Magus- there is a great sense of purposeful competence in the posing and the colors complement one another perfectly.

The outlining on the bike must have taken a fair amount of time and a light hand!

I like the name Copenhaven Cardinals (but spelled as you had it), but the colors put me in mind of the old Army UT-109 jungle fatigues- very realistic, worn/grubby look to them.

Rock on!

The BB humans look cool. If they’re hailing from Coventry surely they should be something to do with not talking? As in sending someone to Coventry. Covenhafen Silencers or Ostracisers perhaps? Would Blitzers be too much?

@Meer_Cat: The highlights on the bike were not that bad, plus black is forgiving to touch up any of the inevitable mistakes. I like the scheme as well, I think it work altogether.

@Gobert: I am still undecided as to a name...but the Coventry Blitzers may be a bit too much! It genuinely made me LOL though, thank you.

So I managed to get the human team fully painted up just in time for my end of month review. That is another 13 miniatures to the total, so 23 for the month and 315 for the year:

First up is the Big Guy, the Ogre. Looking at him I really need to not be lazy and add pupils to his eyes, but apart from that I love him:





And now the rest of the team, the throwers:



Catchers:



Blitzers:



And here are 2 of the 6 basic Linemen:



And Blur 'O Vision team shots:







I got my Blood Bowl Season 2 box on Friday and it is a cracking set and entry point to the game, I also picked up the Necromantic Horror team as they are real fun. They *may* be next on the painting table.

Apologies for the awfulness but the weather is terrible but here is my November group shot. Altogether some solid progress on my Celestial Lions with the Repulsor, ATV, Bike Chaplain and Terminator Chaplain, and apart from the BB team lots of Character models:



Thanks for looking.

Human Team looks great. I almost picked up the new season this weekend, but had to grab some other deals while I could.

As for a name for the team, How about the Copenhafen Coopers. As with most American Football teams, the name could be tied with the profession the area might be known for, in this case coopers. Coopers were wood workers who made barrels, caskets, rakes and other implements. So you could litter the side of the pitch with nice wares such as luxury coffins that the team makes for opponents or unlucky fans.

Great work to show for the month! And seeing that buggy in your colors, that model really grows on me. I wanted to convert a ridgerunner to use as a buggy but may get the real deal. Adding the base certainly helps a lot.

Cheers everyone, have made a little more Blood Bowl progress to start the month.

First up is the Star Player Crumbleberry, Halfling cohort of the Ogre Grak. They come as a pair but I decided to start with the stunty half of the team. They are one of the few Star Players available to every team. I think I wanted to tie him into my Human team colour scheme but Christmas may also have been on my mind as he looks quite festive:





I also managed to paint up the first half of my Necromantic Horror team The Liche Angeles Lurkers (Basketball team I know, but who cares?). These are a really fun team full of great sculpts. I painted them mainly with contrast from a wraithbone base. So here is the team shot:



First up is a werewolf, Gryph Charger Grey Contrast was great for his fur:



Apothecary White did most of the work on the Wraith, replete with team socks on a washing line!



Ghoul Runner:



Flesh Golem:



And the best of the Zombie Linemen:



Thanks for looking.

Not sure if I'm a fan of the Horrors BB team, they have a too specific Halloween theme and don't really fit WH/BB universe as well as the other teams. But cool models in their own right. And of course, you've done a great job painting them!

Oooofph, a fortnight since I last updated. Apologies all but a job in food retail at this time of year will do that to you.

But there has been progress, I am actually tracking at a miniature a day for the month so that is not too bad. It starts with a little 40K and then it is all Bloodbowl-O-Rama.

First up is a Terminator Captain for my Celestial Lions, I have always loved this sculpt:









I also completed my small Necron Lord and Noble torso and leg swap:







So that leads on to Blood Bowl, last time I showed off Crumbleberry...here is his Star Player partner in crime Grak.





And here are the happy couple:



I also painted up my first miniatures from the new Season boxed set in the form of the Elven and Dwarf referees, I really liked painting these and loved the fun of painting on the referee stripes:







I also painted up a Treeman for my Old World Alliance team, this is a heady mix of humans, Dwarves, the odd halfling and either a Treeman or Ogre as a big guy:





One of the delights of the Treeman kit is you get an optional Squirrel...this Squirrel can be used to make the insane Star player Akhorne The squirrel...think the bunny from Monty Python and the Holy Grail and you get the idea. Here is my take on the furry maniac...just insane fun.



I also got the two re-roll counters for my Human team done, they have integral bases but I mounted them on 32mm bases for extra stability:



Finally are the 3 Halflings i got in the Middenheim Maulers Old World Alliance set, basically a sprue each of humans, dwarfs and halflings...these are great characterful sculpts, I mean the running one has a stoat or ferret down his trousers:







So my Blood bowl from the past weeks, a motley crew!



All told that is 21 miniatures done for the month. Thanks for looking.

Another mighty impressive haul. The Lions are certainly blessed with some cool Captains, the latest one is resplendent in his golden armour! I love the Character of the new Blood Bowl guys, they are like new versions of some of the goofy Oldhammer stuff. The Squirrel is amazing, and I’m pleased to see you painted him as a Red, adds to the under dog flavour!

The Terminator Captain showcases your usual lovely standard, and the BB guys are all great, especially the Treeman. However, that squirrel is a an absolute delight and steals the show.

Nicely done models, especially the BloodBowl figs.

I picked up the Season two starter last week just to get the Orcs to add to my AOS Orruks. I hadn’t noticed the goblins and how awesome they are until I assembled them.

That tree man looks so much better the way you painted him, I was going to give him a big pass, but now that I know I get the Squirrel too, I may have to get him and find rules to use him in AOS for my Sylvaneth army.

All of that Blood Bowl stuff is fantastic.

I also like your ATV. I think the base helps. When I make mine, I think I will try to add some sort of bull bars or bumper/spikes to the front. I might take the armour off of the rear wheels too.

Though guards may sleep and ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Cheers everyone, work has been a killer so progress has been slow.

I painted my final 3 miniatures of the year, taking me to 24 for the month and 339 for the year. The final three were more necromantic horror team members in the form of a Golem, Wraith and Werewolf:









I am also rather ashamed to show off my Christmas miniature haul...phew:



So at the start of the year I made a number of hobby resolutions:

1: Beat last year's total of 208 miniatures painted. Over 12 months that works out at 17.33 miniatures a month so it is readily doable. The obvious pitfall is trying not to diminish quality in an attempt to get things done. Nailed it.

2.: To help meet 1: an update post at the end of each month as encouragement. Yep, did that as well.

3: To buy less new stuff before painting the old. Errrr...best not to talk about this.

4: To continue work on my current armies and to maybe "finish (is that possible?)" a couple. I definitely continued some, I certainly did not finish any!

So month by month:

January:


February:


March:


April:


May:


June:


July:


August:


September:


October:


November:


December:


So all told a fun year of painting for me. Highlights were Katakros, more Celestial Lions, starting a Necron army and also beginning to paint Adeptus Titanicus and Blood Bowl:



















Thankyou for indulging me, and may all of you have a far better 2021.
