    It’s great work.




    :D

    Not the slowest. You still finish models and I’ve met many hobbyist that have painted in total less than you. Plus your work is awesome, so don’t beat yourself up over it.

    :D

    I find that kind of hard to believe. Hmm... I might have you topped there, sir. I probably have 2 "totally painted" lizards. I have about 20 total skinks with some paint on them, and 10-11 saurus with some paint. I started a standard GW blue scheme b/c I'm not sure what I want to do. But (to use some AoS references) the rest of my lizards must either hunt in the grey shadows of Ulgu or are covered in the grey ash of Aqshy. Lol.

    The answer doesn't surprise me, but I somehow hoped to be wrong ;)

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Took a look at my Chaos Dwarf collection and decided to compile some progress numbers:

    Cleaned, assembled, gap-filled and based...

    Infernal Guard all dry after their bath...

    Now I have to clean off all the mold lines. That usually takes forever, if my previous unit is anything to go by.


    One more tally for assembled Bull Centaur Renders. Takes my assembled total up above 40%!

    Nice looking centaur! For some reason I envisioned him looking good with red skin, almost lava tones maybe?

    Continued my work on my 10 Infernal Guard. Got rid of all the mold lines :rage:, and attached all the heads and arms. Need to do a bit of gap filling on some of the arm joints, and then attach the weapon hands. The shields won't be attached until after they are painted.


    Also, I've fully assembled and based my first Hobgobin Khan. Custom cut acrylic cavalry base, cork and varthane varnish...

    Assembled the next ten infernal guard (shield arms deliberately left off for sub assembly painting):

    Also finished assembling and basing my 3 character models:

    The guy on the left is my favourite, so he'll be my Sorcerer-Prophet general. The guy in the center (with the converted pointing hand) will serve as my Infernal Castellan. And finally, the rightmost model will be my backup low level wizard, Daemonsmith Sorcerer.

    And lastly, I've mostly assembled my Deathshrieker Rocket. Still a few more levers to add and the crew (so I'm not marking it down as assembled just yet, but it is game ready)...

    I've made some good progress over the last little while in terms of assembling, cleaning up and basing my Chaos Dwarf models. Well that's all about to come to an end...





    Birthday presents!!! :):):) Video games represent hobby kryptonite for me.

    As gone over, I'm a recovering addict. The PS5 represents some SERIOUS high-grade cocaine for me. Sadly I have to stay away from it.

    Try to keep finding time to do some painting though! Hashut is not so easily forgotten ;)
