Hi Dakka,

I’ve started a couple of blogs on here already with the original intention of having a separate one for each army/project – but given my erratic attention span and inability to actually finish anything I thought the best plan moving forward was to put them all together, sort out what actually needs to be done, and devote some time each week to clearing away the clutter.

After several months of 0 painting and a bunch of hoarding, I’ve got a shed full of half-finished or barely started projects that need to get done. I’ve managed to re-jig my timetable a bit so hopefully should have 2-3 hours a week to devote to hobby time in one way or another. My hope is that with this blog I can offer weekly updates and celebrate some progress, no matter how small it may be.

Here’s the list of what is/needs to be done (will be updated with pics later/as I complete projects):

Good luck Tzurk little and often tends to be the way.

Thanks for all your kind words guys - it's nice to see a few familiar faces here and a few new ones too!

It's been a while in between updates, but I have been busy - I swear! I've been working away and getting about a unit a week done and am actually pretty happy with my progress so far. There's a balance somewhere between wanting to be proud of your work and wanting to have an army on the table - I'm still trying to find mine! There are a few rushed parts in the pics like base rims not being tidied up or colours overlapping that have since been tidied up; I am usually just excited to take photos as soon as I finish the last step. I think once the army is finished I will go buy a pot or two of Blood for the Blood God and go bananas on the weapons/teeth/bases.

First batch of minis below - beware big uncropped pics!

Spoiler:

First up I painted the razorgors as I knew they'd be a quick and easy way to build some momentum at the start of the project. Very simple but happy with the way they turned out





I then moved on to the centigorks, my first attempt at batch painting something other than shiny tzaemons!





I also managed to get some paint on the tzaemon prince and took a happy family shot 8-)




And finally been working on the bestigorks for the last little while. These definitely tested my patience and I needed a night off every now and then but it feels good to finally have the whole unit finished!








Hope you guys enjoy - it feels really nice to have a picture log of my progress here. I'm on a bit of a roll with the chaos orcs at the moment, so it'll be ungorblins up next and then I've only got big guys to paint - gorgon, doombull and chariot - looking forward to those!

Thanks turtles! Painting the prince really brought back some interest in the sinister geometry project that had sort of waned in the past couple months. I still have my screamers and exalted flamers ready to paint and I’m starting to think of ideas for more units now too it’s exciting to be excited again!

And now I’m going to have nightmares seeing that daemon prince mixed in with the cool red bestigorks! Seriously though, good work on the Ork Beastmen tzurk. Intrigued as to how you’ll do the gobbos

Thanks gobert! I've been busy the last couple days after another extended break. PIP of ungorblins, gorkghon, GBS, and chariot. Batching them all together - what could go wrong?

Thanks mate! I am really happy with how he's come together with colour. I was terrified of painting the large flat surfaces of his muscles and was admittedly pretty liberal with the application of colour in the hunt for a finished model but I'm pretty stoked with the results so far.

I don't know how to embed videos from imgur or even if that's possible, but I've also thrown together most of the kill team terrain in a little teaser for the future board.

Wow, I love your Centigorks. Has science gone too far??

Your kill team table is coming along nicely, looks like some old appliances have been sacrificed for a good cause. What kind of colors/theme do you have planned for it?

G'day Grenb - thanks for stopping by mate. Yep the terrain cost me $0 total as it was pulled together from a bunch of old appliances and broken stuff I had in the shed...an old air compressor that had carked it, a microwave, toaster, DVD player, couple printers and monitors...

I am thinking classing Necromunda style tricolour palette as the base for most of the pieces: concrete, iron and hazard stripes. Still not sure on how I'm going to do the board itself either; I am thinking some PVC edging around the corners and some sort of wire mesh for the ground layer.

Here's a quick update of the finished (bar a few touchups) gorkgon and GBS. The GBS lost a fair bit of detail because I didn't strip the orc half before priming (which I was then a bit heavy handed with anyway). Oh well, still happy with how he looks









Hopefully finish the ungors and chariot over the weekend - then it's just the doombull and headstone and I'll have a fully painted army for the first time in my life!

Thanks mate even though he's not the general of the army the bray shaman has an important role so I thought I'd jazz his base up a bit more than I have been for the rank and file.

Speaking of generals - here he is, my doom bull! Awful lighting so I might take a few more later but I was excited to show him off. I had planned to go over his tattoos with a bright lime green as sort of evil chaotic fel energy but I don't think my hands are up to the task so I've left it and honestly I'm still pretty happy about him.







Chariot also got finished!







Herdstone is still WIP, have added more to it since the photo. Trying to add more interest in colour as we go w different washes and drybrushing. Ordered a base for it too that should be here this week.



Look! A whole shelf of them





All that's left for this army now is a couple of spawn conversions that I'm working on and a DIY balewind vortex. There's a club meet this coming Sunday so hopefully have them finished by then - then back to tzeentch for a while!

Thanks for looking

Thanks Salvage!

Spawn are primed and here is the bale wind vortex WIP.

The sculpting on the spawn is even rougher than usual but I'm in a hurry and figured if I was ever going to get away with something not being quite right it's now - got to take your opportunities when you they present themselves

Bit of a nervous wait as I only ordered bases for the herdstone and vortex on the weekend - due to arrive this Friday...









more to come 8-)

Thank you CB and CK! Appreciate you guys taking the time to look and comment.

Good to see you're still around turtles - and glad you like him! I was a bit worried he was too silly tbh but I figured I wouldn't get many chances to use those bits elsewhere. He is a good boy

The paint jobs on the spawn were super rushed; maybe 2.5-3 hours from priming to finished on all 3 of them. I am letting it go though - good for the soul and the club meet on Sunday. I can kid myself that I will go and fix them up later but I know that won't happen...lol

Herdstone is coming along, just need to finish the base and touch up the smelly on the back. Vortex still very WIP but should go quick; thinking the tentacles will be flesh fading to the red orc-flesh where it connects to the platform. Going to highlight the purple as starkly as possible and then add in some lime green into the magic whirlwind. Nearly there!








Automatically Appended Next Post:
they are FINISHED

these photos are awful - will try and take some decent ones of the entire army after Sunday.

Excited to take a break - then excited to get back into the tzaemons!

I like how the altar is vomiting down/eating up magical energy. Not sure if it was intended like that, but I like it

you should call the herstone 'Mork's Tooth' - it's looking great!

Nice work on the altar and herdstone. The altar is particularly gribbly! It must have a heavy base to not topple at the slightest bump though?

Thank you guys!

@CK, that's the general idea I was going for - the wizard concentrates on summoning the raw magic vortex, his pet disc-monster then feeds on it to fly...or maybe he shoots it out...whatever!

@ gobert - it's actually really stable. The platform itself is super light and I used coat hanger wire as the base for the vortex so it worked out really nicely.

Here's a big update with some better photos - still not good ones, I'm afraid...will have to dig the lightbox out when I get some time. You can tell in the photos that none of the minis are perfect; there are rough paint jobs or sculpting in every unit. But I am super happy with how they look together, and the fact that I have finally finished an army!

Lot of motivation now to return to the geo daemons!
