Progress Report 6/23/13 - Drakness... all that I see...

Let's start more projects we may not finish in the next few months! Yay!! This time we have a... ELF... team. Or at least the models that I will use to represent such a filthy thing. Built it with a Dark Elf roster in mind using Raging Heroes and Dark Age figures. So tiny! So fiddly! Once I started assembling them I couldn't stop. Perhaps it was the tiny naked breasts that held my attention. 

Line Elf ladies. At least their relatively low armor is appropriate.
Blitzers with the masks on.
Two Witches who will have flaming red hair of course.
Two Runners (out the outside) with their Assassin buddy.
Coach/Wizard, Apoth, and Babe/Cheerleader. Sideline figs.
Witch for the Chaos Cup 2013 legacy team.
And her hair from the rear (lots of hair).
So there you have it. A pile of pewter I spent a few hours toying with this week. On Monday my giant pile of Reaper Bones miniatures is supposed to arrive!? In the meantime I hope to spend some time in between D&D and my weekly radio show getting these minis primed and perhaps getting some paint on another Goliath ganger. We'll see how things shake out...

I need a name for this dirty self-loathing Dark Elf team. I want something vaguely WHFB universe sounding with a heavy dose of self-hating Elf sad face. Thoughts?

Progress Report 6/18/13 - Gang on!

Life is good. Life is busy. And not just the normal "work" busy - full of nerd things like three (three!?) different roleplaying games/groups, my local Blood Bowl league, boardgames, and invites to play all kinds of stuff. I am awash in nerd times and it is good. 

Still dying to get Necromunda going. I know I will suck. I chose a difficult gang to play. I want to paint them all! Here is my first Goliath ganger for the Skullkrushas!!! He's a Juve named....

Basecoats ho!
Basecoats rear!
"First ima stab yeh..."
"...then ima put this gun up yer bum!"
Painted him up in about 1 hour. Pretty darn happy with the results! I started with the "easy" skin tone and plan on working into some more "difficult" skin tones as I paint the gang. Multi-racial gangers all the way!! 

I have three (three!?) incoming painting projects/comissions I need to work on in addition to:
- Halfling (crablings) Blood Bowl team
- Orc (finishing them) Blood Bowl team
- Dark Elf (yuck!) Blood Bowl team
- Goliath gang
- A stack of WHFB minis (Chaos!!!!!)

I feel I need to spend more time in my new painting "studio" in the next few months. Time to get back to work!!

Progress Report 6/3/13 - Necrotrolls

New home is great. Still working out the kinks and upacking things as we go. Kitchen is about 90% of the way there and the rest of the house is following suite. Haven't had as much time to paint as I would like but this is mostly due to changes at work and using the free time to play D&D! More on that later perhaps... for now here are some minis! 

Troll-gating mini for the 40 Miners Big House turned out pretty good. Vision was a big dumb stone troll covered in Gnoblar/Goblinoid things who are ready to party. I think it conveys that nicely. Hopefully he will look good in the new stadium seating!

Also spent some time finishing up the building and magnetizing of my first Necromunda gang... the Goliaths known as the Skullkrushas!! Added a couple of converted gangers made from 40k bits too. More on these guys as they are painted and completed. 

Still working on terrain as well... you might see it in the background of these photos if you peek. This week I am headed back to Austin for a work related thing so no painting for me. Until next time...
