The time for every-Sunday hobby spaming has come so I lets do it fast – there’s Twin Peaks on TV in 40 mins 😉
So first good news is Mr Archaon, called by some Lord of End Times, has found new home! That’s great news because I was pretty worried about Ebay-powers of these large models but apparently I was wrong. That also means I can paint another mounted model – lord of Khorne or Slaanesh maybe – we’ll see!
And since we’re speaking about Nurgle – my Tale of Gamers project slowed down seriously but I managed to convert cultist based on ork from Assault on Black Reach (?) box – it has flamer implant and nasty terminator axe so I think you’ll like it. After all everybody like flamers!
For this one I used oil drum from Tamiya – quality of the details is stunning as well as low (compared to GW) price. That makes me wonder what makes people to buy GW stuff in stores – I’ve realised long time ago than except for second handed stuff and auctions there’s no reasonable way to get these minis.
Another achevement was choosing another gang member for the cult – it will be ghoul from Mantic Games – I got the free sample on Monday. I wasn’t sure about these minis but when I opened the envelope I was shocked: quality of sculpt is just a dream!!! I actually still have to choose 2 more gangers so I might even use both ghouls recieved – they are brilliant! Can’t remember when was the last time I got mini with so much character.
The last GW thing in this update is Plague Marine champion finished today – unfortunately pics are pretty weak and somehow I couldn’t force myself to re-take them…
Anyway the figure is finished and because I already have this version of Plague Marine it was put on Ebay 15 mins ago – let’s hope another mini will find new home and possibility of ripping Space Marines apart on battlefield!
But there was more than just GW on my painting station last week!
I managed to paint model for NQ painting challenge – I turned vassal of Menoth into mechanithrall hehehe… It was a bit tricky but I can assure you there’s no better fun than chopping off arms and head of ugly model 😉
Let’s just hope the paintjob, conversion + crossed fingers will make this piece a winner. When I look at the photo I think model could be executed better (smoother paining on the skull for example) but I was informed guys from NQ like it anyway so think I can consider the thrall finished. Hope you like it!
Last week the mailman brought me NQ#29 – this was really cool but apparently someone responsible for shipping put wrong issue to the envelope so I got #29 instead of #30 in which my entry for Salty Dog was printed 🙁
Oh well – let’s hope sooner of later I’ll get the proper magazine.
Anything else? Actually yes!
Today I started assembling Rackham troll I got from the Mysterious Miniature Supplier 😉 I only started because I realised it won’t be easy – there’s LOTS of gaps so I’m gonna remember this piece for a looong time…
I was also forced to change painting station and I am still getting used to it. It’s less comfortable than previous one but I can close it so there’s no chance any of my cats steals my brushes ever again 😉
