Back from what seemed to be a short trip... turns out it was over 5 weeks!

Started this guy before I left. He was a leftover of Barzam's he never got around to painting.



Since I only had the one, I figured I'd do something different than the typical red for him. I'll have him hang out with tin can Sorsha whenever I get around to picking her up.

Speaking of things Barzam gave me, I got this set of Glavewraith Stalkers from him for the big four oh birthday. Jet lag and an inability to sleep means they got done right quick!





As I've been known to do, I will happily sing the praises of these easy to build kits. Affordable, well sculpted, nice bases... I'm a happy camper.

I've got the Banshees as well, but not sure when I'll get to them. I have an incredibly large pileup of stuff to paint, along with the Tharn I started before I left. The hope is to churn through as many unfinished models as possible before I head back to work. I think I can do it...

You got those ghosteses done quick. I suppose they'd be relatively easy to paint though. It looks like their bases probably took longer. They came out very nice though. Good choice on lining the Shocktroop in blue, too. It really helps make the white armor pop.

Their bases did take longer than the actual ghosts. At least the Soul Wars versions don't have custom bases, I can slop through them quickly.

Speaking of quick, here's another figure I got on either Monday or Tuesday and jet lagged my way through.



Sergeant Dragos Dragadovich of Khador's Man-O-War Demolition Corps. Dude's got some custom man-o-war armor as well as a pair of modified ice hammers the demo corp use. I really like this figure, and he had me sold on the whole range of Man-O-War from the moment I saw him. Even if he never gets used in an official Khadorian capacity, him and his Forgeseer friend are going to see use in other games.

Something that took me quite a while to get wrapped up however, were my Tharn. I showed these three off a while back, and I've had a set of Blood pack hunters sitting in front of me for just as long.



Here's the Whitemane, which is the grizzled elder of the tribe.



The Shaman, wiith a weird pose that didn't want to go together, requiring pinning and greenstuff to get his staff arm attached.



...and the Chieftain himself, ready to sacrifice puny weaklings in the name of the Devourer.

I like the Tharn, but dang are they cluttered up with tattered rags and trinkets. I hope to have the blood pack done this coming week (two are near completion), and maybe some day I'll get some Ravagers to go with them.

I should have an odd assortment to show off next week as well...

So this guy jumped to the front of the line.



He's from Diehard Miniatures in Spain. Guy does all sorts of interesting Oldhammer style sculpts. He was sitting in the garage, I needed to prime some other figures, and he ended up getting finished first.
Very classic feel to him. I feel like I did a decent job.

Still plugging away at those stupid Tharn Blood Pack. They're just so dang busy!



Got the leader done at least. I'm trying to use him as a guideline for the rest of the crew. Problem is the details on their faces are really soft and there's not a lot of good closeup photos of painted models out there.



Finished a Crypt Flayer/ Vargheist I had laying around. At least he looks presentable for tabletop usage.



Some ghouls to go with him.



Started another house or clan or whatever they're called for the Flesh Eater Courts, going for a Blank from SF2 vibe with them, with the green skin and orange hair.



Something totally not my usual- Space Marine Scouts! These came with Shadow War Armageddon. Built them when I got it and never bothered to use them. Maybe I will now. I've painted a few of the orcs that were included with that as well.




With the snipers right behind them. I even tried to do a quick and simple camo pattern, which seems pointless given the blue armor and beige under clothes, but whatever...

I guess I should probably get some Ultramarine decals at some future point to slap on all these guys, since they look like Ultramarines. Their armor is a bit to bright and blue to be proper Smurfs though.

It's always nice to see Oldhammer stuff, even if it's not really that old. The trim on the armor turned out quite nicely.


Check out the All-New, All-Different A Tale of Several Gamers!

Painting total as of 7/20/2018: 124 plus three sets of Osgiliath ruins and Great Cthulhu and a Japanese peasant farmhouse and a rice paddy.
Painting total for 2017: 267 plus two SF buildings and two specimen tanks and two Treemen and two chariots and lots of Frostgrave ruins and an evil tree, six mythos monsters, two GF9 swamps and thirteen pieces of scatter terrain.

Stuck at home today while we got a patio finally installed, so what better to do than paint and listen to music all day?

So this lady's been a bit of a project of mine this last week. I've yet to see a finished version of her to copy, so I had to stare at the artwork and try and do my best.



This is the Daimyo from the Sun Clan in Rising Sun. She was in the Dynasty Invasion expansion, which were the Chinese and Korean clans. I really just wanted her, and thankfully found and eBay seller who got me the whole clan for a very reasonable price.

I think her clothes turned out decent. I still love the sculpt. I'll try and do one of each of the other sculpts. I'm not sure about her face. I can't tell if she should be paler or not.



One of the newer Bones releases. Not sure about the dino head. Needs something, but I don't know what. Monkey is alright. He's big too.



A random Goritsi from Wrath of Kings. Picture sucks, I think I did a better job than it looks.



Batboy and a random Gunslinger from Knuckleduster's line. Seems inspired by Eastwood. I fethed up that stupid sarape and don't know what to do with it. Repaint it most likely... but how?



An over saturated shot of Khador's Great Bears of Gallowswood. I forget who is who...



Except I know the bald guy is Yarovich. He's hanging out with his buddy Kovnik Andrei Malakov. This is the earlier non- Kickstarter version of Malakov- he's a full blown warcaster in a wannabe commissar styled uniform these days.



stupid tharn are finally done!



My dad found these while they were cleaning out shelves to get ready for new carpeting. I think I painted these maybe 92 or 93. I think I did them for my brother in Japan, who is to cool to ever admit enjoying 40k stuff.

Front guy with the big boots is a RAFM sculpt according to Barzam. I have no idea what's up with the power glove guy in the back. What's he doing with his hand?

I have a strong feeling I never finished these. I could never match the color GW used for Blood Angels. I mostly used my dad's Tester's enamels back in those days. Ahh... sometimes I get nostalgic for the 90s.
