Painting

Welcome To The Jungle! We've got fun and games. So here I am with another collection of virtually finished foliage for your perusal. Like I said in my previous post , I love the idea of lethal plant life on alien planets. So I got some more inspiration from White Dwarf issue 242. I think I will put up the picture from the magazine then my attempt so you can judge how accurate/inaccurate I am. Mangrovian Trees The first non-lethal trees I made were these palm...
Greetings. Quite a while back, whilst I was playing Inquisimunda I decided to create an Eldar pirate band to terrorise the galaxy with. I had for a long time been a keen Eldar collector (can't really say player as I only had a couple of games of 40K) and kept promising myself I'd stop buying models and paint up what I had. I converted* some Eldar Guardian models and hey presto! I had a warband. That was about 2 years ago...
Being a devoted hobbyist, the idea of a snow day makes me happy. Generally though, if there is a snow day then there are probably a few things I can do DIYwise when my better half is around. Storm Emma 1 hit Ireland following "the Beast From The East" 2 and it gave me some free time to paint up some Catachans. Here is the results; Sadly these guys will probably be the first removed from units as they are just armed with...
Two months into 2018 and some more progress has been made! This update is all Blind Beggar stuff. I'm a big fan of Blind Beggar, their models strike a chord with me. Not as batshit crazy detailwise as some companies, they are unusual models that are a refreshing change from the overly militaristic models I seem to be painting a lot lately. The models below mainly come from the Crew Of The Mother Hydra Kickstarter and the Deep Ones collection as well. They are all a bit fishy. Dark Clergy Guy The model...
Greetings. Another day another blog post. This is a very short one as I thought I'd put up my newly varnished Ratlings. Not much to say about these models except they are filling out my sniper unit to 10, fully painted models. These models were previously Dettoled and hastily stripped so there are still a few lumpy bits on them, hence no very close ups. If nothing else these models will hopefully spell the demise of more than a few Orks in the upcoming campaign...
My first Dire Avenger Squad has been completed! This post is merely to display them and allow me to chalk them off my 'to do' list. They have actually seen action against a combined force of Ultramarines and Crimson Fists and acquitted themselves quite well. They are a pretty decent troop choice for the Eldar as they have a high rate of fire and enhanced overwatch.The models below have had their first coat of varnish (gloss) so they look a bit shiny. Once the second coat of mat varnish goes on they will look better methinks. I'm now waiting for an unseasonably warm spell due to my encounter...
Some more models have been completed! As the Warhammer 40K train trundles along I'm making progress. As is unusual in the male dominated 41st millennium there are more female models painted this week than male. Some will be getting stuck in to 40k ASAP and the others will wend their way onto the gaming table via a more narrative route. So anyhow, bring out the lead! Blind Beggar Fish People I've been a fan of Blind Beggar...
