*Cleans Dust off Blog*
Wow it’s been nearly 3 months since I updated this blog that’s well terrible……..
Sorry about that, but with Christmas and New Year I sort of got distracted. But I’m back now so hopefully I can get this blog back to being updated more regularly again :)
Right first off the Wracks Tutorial is nearly finished (better late than never I guess :P) and will be up soon :)
Secondly I’d like to welcome some new followers, so Hi to Joao Mota, spacejacker and Ludo Weyden cheers for the support guys :)
So now to some pictures, though I slowed down over the Christmas period in recent weeks I have been quite productive so heres a rather large selection of bits and pieces:
First up a squad of Dark eldar Warriors:
I really enjoyed these guys and the agoniser gave me a chance to try out an energy effect which I was pretty damn happy with in the end. On the downside I quickly lost interest in the DE so this squad and a raider I have half painted are likely to be all I do for them bar a few characters L
Next is the first full squad of my updated and true/up scaled Word Bearers:
These guys took an age to convert and there are some areas that I’m not to happy with but over all I think they have turned out quite well. I’m currently converting the next squad but will be taking a break from them as there is only so much filing down of plasticard that I can take haha
Next is a unit of Scouts for my FoW SS:
Nothing special here just fancied a change from painting 40k and also a chance to test out some tufts of static grass which I had picked up
And finally that brings us up to date, my current project is the updating of my Imperial Guard force: The 13th Karkon Grenadiers. It mainly involves some new heads ( the awesome Pig Iron Colony militia covered helmets and HQ heads) as well as some new camo and highlights.
So far I have finished a single squad of Guardsmen:
I have also converted a platoon commander from a metal Cadian officer. The model was used as a traitor guard captain in the past so I have had to re sculpt the Aquila on his chest, he needs his camo updating and highlights too;
The IG will be my project for a while (well until I get distracted: P ) but there may be some BFG, Mordheim and some other random models popping up in here in the near future :)
Also I’m beginning to move my hobby focus a bit more towards drawing, as GW stuff especially is getting too expensive for me now that’s why most my projects are updating my old armies L . I will be getting a new graphics tablet for my birthday so expect to see the odd bit of artwork pop up in here too :)
Well that’s it for this update, as ever any comments and suggestions are more than welcome.
I’ll try not leave it so long between updates now :P
