Long time, no see ... Here's the entry I'm preparing for the painting contest Duke of Bavaria at the moment:

Still several parts left to paint: the road sign (Park & Ride), the sword of the mini I'm planning to add, and shadows of both on the desert landscape. In the end, I'm going to fix a sign on it with the Sufi saying 'Trust in God, but tie up your camel'.

Oh that looks superb! How did you get that effect on the base?

Thank you for your comments. Countersunk is right. I used crackle medium, basecoated and then painted it with Vallejo Middle Stone and a mixture of Middle Stone with Dark Sand, and then drybrushed several more elevated spots with Dark Sand. Pretty happy with the outcome, and still a few days to go until the painting contest takes place. Anyone else here who will attend the Duke of Bavaria?

I'd agree with that, if I weren't working on models that are all in-progress already...and have been for years in some cases. :oops2:
Let's just say that I love to start new projects. Frequently.

Then you, my friend, are in the right place. Very much the topic of conversation in the shed the other day. I am now getting to the point where I have to admit defeat and force myself to get through finishing some armies at least to the point that I can game with them, as it has been so long since I have had a painted force I can game with and be proud of.

Decals from Warlord showed up today. I haven’t used a decal in about 15 years. I'm trying to paint these up kind of like WWII Shermans but I don't really know that much about tank markings. I'm also doing my best to stretch my freehand skills. Weathering is another thing I mean to try, but I know even less about that. :loopy:

Started the Tzaangors for Silver Tower a couple of days ago:

Image

After this, it's the turn of the Gaunt Summoner (awesome mini that!), a few heroes and exotic adversaries as a campaign progresses (hopefully...). To speed things up I asked my (potential) ST gaming group to pick their hero choices and the results were: Darkoath Chieftain, Dark Elf Sorceress, Excelsior Warpriest & Gryph Hound, Slaughterpriest, Necromancer (my choice). Remaining heroes to be painted in due time as there will be other pressing matters to attend to (wrap up Otherworld Warband #2, start #3, paint John Pickford's Arse Cannon set and get started on the Pantheon of Chaos wave 1 set. Uff...

Smashing progress Connexion, the whole set will be done in no time!

I myself have been working on more things for the board:

Fenris lazy wagon with some Renedra plastic barrels. For the game these will contain Triple Axe Ale . . . . :beardy:

Yup. Original Bauhaus Vulkans. I like them much better than the new ones from Prodos.

Good looking cart. Maybe someday, when I've made a significant dent in my leadpile, I can paint more terrain.

50% completed:

These are taking a bit more time and work than I initially planned. Should be done by the end of the week and then *finally* will start on the Gaunt Summoner.

In case anyone's interested, for each area/colour, the current "assembly line" method roughly consists of:
- base coat
- drybrushed highlights (1 or 2)
- apply adequate Vallejo wash/shade
- quickly drybrush tips/edges highlights
- move to next area

More trees/wooded areas. Possibly some more rocky outcrops. I'm going to have a go at a fantasy road next I think as well as maybe a broken ground pit from hence the forces of shadow spew. I have completed building one of two weapon racks for the hold as well. All of this being completed depends upon time and other commitments of course. :D

A rather eclectic mix from me this time

HF NOLA five still need to do the bases

Pulp adventurer and objective marker

And some random feckin zombies and another objective marker, this time its zombie eggs according to my daughter :)

I've just finished my entry for the Duke of Bavaria 2017:

Image

The only thing I still have to paint is a cat for another project ('Santa Trump') ... Not sure whether it's a good idea to post a pic here though as Trump is polarising people so much I got kicked out of a Facebook group because I had posted a pic of it there. If you are interested in how it looks like you can look it up on my blog (see link below) though.

I hope these are being combined, and those battle suits will have Skellingtons driving them. :)
