Finally got my internet connection sorted out, after a fortnight of it being on the fritz - I'm impressed with what people have been posting while I've been away, and will update the completions post shortly.

In the meantime, here's what I finished in January:

Guild Ball

Guild Ball ball token - needed tidying up + tufting

Oathsworn Miniatures

Pug Bounty Hunter


Squirrel Rogue


Female Dwarf Fighter


Hermann's Tortoise

Thanks Josh - I'm not convinced the tortoiseshell effect I was going for on Hermann seemed to work, but I'm happy with the other three.

I imagine the tortoise shell looks great at tabletop distances. Also, the squirrel reminds me of Disney's Robin Hood, which is a good thing indeed.

They look great to me, Dysartes. And no miniature ever looks the same when blown up to 100% as it does when in hand. I know too well that the tiniest flaw and imperfection is magnified more than the stuff that still looks right. Especially when you're being self-critical!

Lots of great work everyone! Very inspirational.

I totally missed uploading my January finished pictures. Actually got it done on time too! Life really fell apart a month ago, and I am finally getting it back together. Which means getting in to finish February's project. I will show January then.

Keep it up guys!

I've been hard at work, doing a lot of painting (and paint stripping, and disassembling/reassembling) so I'll share some pictures of two more complete Kasrkin squads. Both are plasma armed, but one squad has a grenade launcher sideboard. You know, for when plasma Scions are too hard, and I want to tone them down.

Nice work all round, the shiney white Tau figure is particularly eye catching.

Virtually no painting for me this month, but I am gearing up for a spring offensive.

Just leaves me to sort out the HQ and the army will be done. Just have to decide which way I am going to go. If you want to give an opinion stop on by and say hello.

Alrighty, so I painted a couple of squads of ork shoota boyz this month, a 10-man and a 20-man...

Brass Etch is something I'm considering starting to use. How do you apply it just Superglue or something more complex?
