So much great stuff, one is nearly tempted to walk the path to heresy And do you really want to smooth the edges of the small bio-tank. It looks more thematically fitting with the uneven top in my eyes.

Arakasi - and then it all stopped......

Theo - Many thanks my friend, appreciate it.

graven - Probably my favourite too, I have been building a setting around him in my head, mostly 40k, mostly RT to be fair

Viterbi - Turn your back on the false emperor, the corpse god holds no real power There were plans for broken tanks as well - in those cases the contents would not be quite so.....intact. Still are plans to be fair - just didn't happen in the timeline.

CB - Thank you, gutted I couldn't get round to finishing for the comp.


Doc - Thanks as always.




Hobby time kind of disappeared into the warp during June and July. Started back at work from furlough, playing catch-up with all that head office had done whilst we had all been off...And then redundancy. Today was my last day at work, after 25 years with the company.

It was a head office decision, not my company, and there were over 900 of us across the estate, many of whom I was genuinely shocked by, an awful lot of experience has gone, but ultimately I understand the reasons, and they have been very generous with the redundancy offers,going way above statutory, who h was ok in my case to start with due to service.

So I don't need to panic right now about getting a new job, but nevertheless, not what I was hoping for or even expecting to be honest. So very mixed feelings at the moment.


I did manage to complete June's painting challenge - but bad pics.







July's did not make it though...




And have started trader...







Hopefully August will see more progress.....

I really hate it when companies ditch the older, experienced people for younger (read: cheaper) employees. But, that's the way of the world nowadays.

Hopefully, you'll bounce back on your feet!

Sorry to hear about the job. I'm in the same boat, but only had six years before the mast.

Hang in there, you'll pull through.

I sincerely hope you get some hobby time soon. And regularly.
I've been going like crazy trying to get work to fill the salary void. But making space in my schedule for painting has been a life saver.

Proof of life:

(Early edit - apologies for the blurry pics, forgot how bad my phone was for this )

Happy flappy nurgly drone





Going to get a sibling I suspect. And possibly might see some colour soon??

Bug Eyed Stabby servitor
(with weird membrane legs)







Maybe some sort of roller thing going on at the tips of the wing-leg things. Too many things in too short a sentence, yes, two things can be too many things...
Had more humanoid style arms previously, also want to check some of the Talos arms



Weird stalker growler thing




Not at all sure where this is going, but there's something there. Been playing with ogre heads and skulls along with this one.


A differing variant on the bloat drone






Obviously not from the same stock as the previous bloat drones (really should have gone back a few pages to remind myself if I named them )



Did start a fluffy piece about stasis revival and necro-sorcery, but discounted it in case I immediately drifted off again...


Thanks for all the comments, they were much appreciated (I didn't ghost because of any of them )

A few things starting to take shape, but let's not get excited considering the stop and start nature of the last few pages - definitely more stop than start.



Oh...



Or... I could have guns you guys..
Hmm, but then wouldn't it be better if we just adjusted you a little..




Yeah, it's another flying thingy.


Thanks for popping in, grab as many complimentary tentacles as you can on the way out, who knows if I'll be back soon...

Boss - Thank you! I knew it was too good for those maggots - now I just need to find new heads for them And figure out how to fill the sides of that drone...


Kernel - After all, flying is just non-flying but in the air..... Cheers!



First touches of colour:










Nothing fancy, just some basic colours to start working with.
Thinking that the little bone-winged one needs a brother with a skull-head of some sort, just to the in the bare bones a bit better. And need to check that wing as it looks like I missed mould-lines!

Also need to figure out bases for them both...


And a decidedly dodgy looking group starting to form...




Thank for stopping in, look out for the .... Oh....the missing rail, I was trying to say the rail's missing there.....
I'm sure the slime broke their fall, it'll be fine

CB - Same monkey madness, same monkey channel


Slow incremental progress, so long pauses between posts, but I'm still here


Nothing worth new pics on the little drone, but a touch more colour on the bigger one:






And some colour appearing on the dirty disparate degenerate desperados




A close combat servitor type, available for pummeling, bashing, chopping and cutting. Includes hand held accessories for slashing, chopping and sawing.





Your standard PA type, taking notes, making appointments, scheduling time for communing with dark entities...






Basic chaotic inspired space guy with powered armour, handy for absorbing damage, shooting towards good guys without ever seeming to hit them, despite the fearsome reputation of all his dudes.


Couple more gribblies on the table at the moment, hopefully something to show next time.


Thanks for stopping by folks, happy crisis and a merry new fear.

Viterbi - Cheers, that's one of the colourshift paints, still deciding on the final look of the eyes.


Few more coming together...




Just your average gunslinger, got his arm shot off some years back





Big guy, extra hands, dropped his gun when one hand turned into swords





Stuff


And a bit of colour on the ogryn...




Gas-tank will likely be a very battered yellow, or verdigis copper. Did consider rusty steel, but there's rusty blades either side, and a fair amount of brown leather so throwing in something different.


Thanks for looking in

graven - Look, I"m trying to figure out how to use my Dredd stuff in other ways, don't encourage me to start going the other way...


A touch more of that colour stuff everyone seems so fond of on the ogryn chappy...






Finished up the body of the venomdrone, and started in on some colour...





Blocked off the limb holes when I undercoated so I can get a decent join when the wings and "legs" get added in. Still have a couple of options for those, so going to wait till the body's fully painted before deciding on the exact layout - might also affect the basing, currently I'm thinking the main support will be hidden by a flow of goo and ooze from the rear nozzle-pipe.


And finished up the little flying guy...





Still needs a varnish, and the inevitable touch-ups now I've seen the blow-ups.


Thanks for popping in, hopefully if something caught your eye it won't get infected...
