Wales: Where the Men are Men and the sheep are Scared.

In a similar vein to the What are you doing today? Hobbywise Only thread I am curious what is currently on your desk being painted. Preferably in pictorial form.

If you don't have a permanent set up then in your drawer/shoebox etc.

Really intrested to see what you are working on and what it looks like before its finished.

I am currently jumping between several different Sengoku Jidai (Samurai) era models. They are in various states of unfinished and I wish I had taken more care with the mould lines.



Please Share what you are working on.

This Is Where the Fish Lives

Right now I have a Land Raider Crusader:



I just started painting the tracks so those will be added soon. After that I have to assemble the hurricane bolter sponsons. It also needs a gloss coat and some decals followed by some oil washes and weathering.

I don't have any pictures of this stuff, but I have a Land Speeder Storm that I disassembled and cleaned up, primed, and waiting for paint plus 5 sternguard bodies primed and waiting for paint.

Soon my desk will be flooded with Imperial Guardsmen for a commission I accepted so all my goodies will be placed on the back-burner.

My Land Raider Crusader, Legion of the Damned squad(s), a few Honour Guard, some Tactical Marines and my entire Ork army bar 4 models.
XD
I'll post pics once I figure out how to get my webcam to take pictures again.

Edit; There we go.
I think? First time using attachments, sorry.
Also added my Termies and I didn't photograph my Orkses.
For obvious reasons.

The Honour Guard will all look like the two that are painted in that picture.
The Legion are an odd colour because I cannot paint flames for my life, so I did my own chapters take on them; they're made up of the armour, bone and blood of their bodies, which were never recovered. The purple PC and black PG are going to become Legion members soon.

And yes, my army is Genestealer Purple.

My desktop right now is 6x Fire Dragons and 5x Rangers for my new Biel-Tan force:






I should have those finished tonight and then move on a Farseer and Falcon tank. Just came back to the game after a 10 year break and decided to paint an army from scratch. Last week I completed 47 models in 5 days. Last weeks work:

Good idea for a thread, popping by to sub and I'll innundate you all with photos as soon as my tiny toddler master gives me half a moment to post them!

Here we go, as promised, forgive the lighting just used my painting lamp in a hurry:




And what you're seeing should be the undercoat for my first Plague strike team for deadzone: 4 large human-sized mutant guys, large dog, 2 beefy gorilla-like plague mutants, and the biggest first generation plague mutant in the front. You might also notice a strain necromorph (spot the zombie/mutant thing that doesn't belong!) who got prepped for painting just as my DZ stuff came in. There's also an Infinity Reverend Moira, she's got a mean sword, a big gun, and unreasonably revealing clo... optical diversionary camouflage . Also you can see the enforcer sniper also available in the deadzone boxed game, and two 3" cube structures built out of deadzone scenery tiles, these are destined for more time with the airbrush as they will end up light grey, but they were undercoated and available for photographing. There's a ton more DZ scenery waiting in the wings to see how these two small pieces go, but any more minis I'll have to assemble before I can paint.

I'll say it again, there's some really cool stuff here... land raiders, titans/knights, really neat conversions and what looks like some already very nice paint jobs

@Grimdork: I love the Plague gen 1. Every other plague model ranges from meh to dislike for me but the gen 1 is awesome.

@Markillius08Made: Cant wait to see that finished.

@Tyronus: I know how you feel. I rarely finish much either.

@cento: How did you achive that muted green on the rangers cloaks?

@bossfearless: Quite possibly the most bizzare thing i have ever seen. Love it.

@gohkm what character is going to go onto the base?

Well, I may as well chip in my own paltry efforts I've been getting sick of painting smaller models recently, but can't bring myself to burn a new Contemptor sized hole through my wallet without at least ploughing through some of the stuff on my desk. Hence, here's my latest efforts, a Death Company converted Salamanders assault squad (For the same price I get far more goodies in the DC box, at the expense of a lot of Blood Angel iconoclasm ). They're still WIP, as the pic quality indicates (They better in real life - honest!), but should be done and dusted tomorrow evening!

I am rebuilding my paint collection after a 10 year break from the hobby and found myself without a proper shade of green, so this was a 50/50 fix of Reaper's Highland Moss and Green Ochre colors, and then thinned of course. I use to use Vallejo paints, but decided to give Reaper paints a chance when I needed to start over from scratch. Been pretty happy with them so far.

I like Vallejo a lot. Never tired reaper. The green looks good mate. Very earthy, great for a ranger.

Looks good to me mate. Yeah I get that too had a period where I was buying way too much new stuff without ever touching the old. Kind of felt like whats the point, just collecting stuff to have it. So I sold a load of my stuff and tightened my focus.

I'm still battling with selling off some of my old stuff, though I doubt I'll ever be able to tighten my focus, as you say. Get manageable discrete chunks of a project done before swapping to something else though... I've been handling that somewhat better than in the past

If I dont think it will ever get painted or used I am getting rid of it.

Helps that I use sales of old stuff to fund new stuff.

I want to buy 40k, but Gamesworkshop is doing their very best to push me away, and simply not buying their product won't tell them that.
