    So I now have 3 units of these to zip around the battlefield.

    Been away from the painting desk for while due to recovering from surgery. Felt good to get back to it and paint this High Elf up as a birthday present for a friend.

    Darn, I hope you are well and recovery was without complications. That elf is amazing! Do you want more friends? I'll let you know about my birthday. :D

    It sucks to hear you had to go through surgery, I hope you will come out the better.

    That model though... DAMN such a good paintjob, those eyes are so cool and done right. One amazing birthday present!

    :hilarious:

    Grrr, !mrahil

    Thank you both, I'm recovering well and should hopefully be back to normalcy soon. Thanks for the kind words about the model too :)
    I'm always happy to have more friends, I can't promise everyone will get a painted model though :p

    Your model is gorgeous, no wonder you won the last challenge!

    Don't worry, mine was last week so you'll have a whole year to get it done. :D:angelic:

    Been doing a lot of building and priming recently, including a big Bretonnian army and an all metal Lizardmen warband for Mordheim.
    Not gotten much painting done but I did paint this Vampire Lord as a birthday present for my dad:

    Great work man, I love the fabric and weathering on the cloak.
    And those eyes are just sooo good!

    Looking forward to Bretonnians painted by you :wideyed:

    Thank you! I was very pleased with the eyes :)
    I can't promise to show any Bretonnians any time soon. The knights will probably take me ages to paint.

    Been working on another 2 BARC Speeder for my Star Wars Legion Republic army. Here's the first of the new ones:

    Here is the 3rd and final BARC Speeder. Now I can field a list that maxes out on them.

    Thank you! The weathering is the most fun thing about painting vehicles

    I won't have chance to paint anything else to completion before New Year, so here are some quick pictures of everything I painted in 2023 (minus the 5 minis I gave as gifts).

    I'm pretty happy with how much I got done but would love to increase my output in 2024 (my primed Bretonnian army demands it!).

    Great stuff, man.
    I admire your restraint to only stick to Lizardmen and Star Wars miniatures. And to a high quallity paint job each time.

    Grrr, !mrahil

    Thank you!

    Thanks mate! I will be branching out a little in this coming year. I've got a whole army of Bretonnians ready to paint.

    First update of the year. I've painted up my first unit of Bretonnians, 30 Men-at-Arms.
    Super happy with how they turned out.
