So, my output for February so far = 1... (But an impressive 350 points nevertheless)













I will be the first to admit that I have neither the skill, patience or time to do OSL, so, it is a few highlights and that is it.  I went for a kinda Drow colouration on the Elf corpses, coupled with a maritime blue, that I imagine will be carried over to any living ones I paint.

I will endeavour to get better lit pictures as soon as possible.

Great new take on Mhorgoth Cheesy really menacing Smiley OSL is time consuming!

Glad you like them.

30 was easy.

120 was more time consuming...



Still, 151 minis done this month.


And I might have something very special for my next update.   Wink

You sir are insane!

Thats a lot of zombies... how much time did you actually spend painting them?
Do you paint in big long sessions or do lots of smaller sessions?

And the verdegis on the Abyssal Dwarfs look sweet.

Ooooh, compliments  Tongue

Ehm, to be honest, I don't really know.  An hour or so here and there, and a few hours whilst pissing about online at night.  New baby has shifted painting regime about a bit.  Being off work helps too.

They weren't all painted in one go, but in 2 batches of 60.  I spray primed them, couple of washes on the skin, and then painted the bases, which was the worst part.  Then I went over the full unit, did all the scabs/cuts/guts, then picked out the bone, then eyes and hair.  Then I sorted them out into lines dependant on body and leg combo, and did each row with 1 of 3 colours (green, 2 browns), then washed them again, then did the grass.  Then finished with the gore.

Each stage probably took 1-2 hours, but that also included fag and coffee breaks, separating squabbling siblings, browsing the net.


Basically 60 done over a 4 day period.  Twice. 


Yeah, I got lucky getting my hands on the Abyssal Dwarfs, seemingly my army deal hasn't even shipped yet...

Amazing work! Especially how many models you've got painted so quickly. Inspiring stuff.

You sir, are a madman. Although, if I ever take a trip to the Northern Colonies, I'll have to pop in to see them finished!!
