What a deal o.o
Some of the deals and stuff you find are just breathtaking. Also that is alot of wolves :o
Can't tell from the photo but how many of those are oop/custom wolves and how many are the new boxset?

I'm working on a deal right now to get $400 worth of salamanders for $50, there's some sweet talking invoked but mostly it has to do with keeping a network of buyers and trades on hand, I'll explain more when the deal is done.

arghhh...

this post could have included the rest of rather the whole board, but both my vehicles died last week and I wasn't able to finish the deal....curse the dark gods. They must know what I'm up to.

Speaking of which I know it looks like I'm not doing much Warhammer related modeling which is usually true in the summer, but not the case this year, oh no, I'm collecting, I'm collecting hard. and come this fall you'll see what I've been up to.

in the meantime here's the board so far without the detail work done (skulls)

Image

Image

not counting drying time these six pieces took less then an hour to do. note, if you don't have a spray gun then get good with spray paint.

and again I've got a ways to go but at least I've got something to take pics of my work on ..



Image

way more to come...

Alright so here we go.

I've been planning this for awhile but we had a house guest who stayed for nine months and only left at the beginning of the month so it's taken me that long to collect the pieces, get the tables, drag all my stuff out of storage and finally put everything in it's place.....for those of you who thought I was building a battle barge, I don't have the materials for that "yet" and so I'm sorry.......no this whole month and some has been dedicated to putting together what will be my collecting and gaming area for the next 20 years and here's the pics...

Image

it's actually a good size space but I've filled it, decided to keep the couch so the room doubles as a guest room, a reallllly cool guest room.

Image

I'm hoping to fill this wall with more early White Dwarf issues.

Image

Image

where as this wall is almost full with different supplements and decals from yester year.

Image

Image

then you got my bitz, mostly, at least the ones I need to get to on a regular basis.

Image

I should have taken a picture of this terrain on the table so you can see how much there is but needless to say there's enough to fill a 12 panel realm of battle board.

Image

and that's the board, there's actually a third table as well but there's just no more room left.

Image

That's most of my wolves and my Blood angels, I'd like to have a small example of each of the first founding chapters before the end of the year. So far I've got three including the Dark angels who I hate cause I'm a wolf.

Image

and then there's what's left and also my comices, which I've started taking key issues and framing, these will fill the wall outside of this riim and I'll take more pics when that's done.

so there it is, once fall hits and I'm back to modeling this will be where the magic happens.

thoughts?

So I traded off my extra marine stuff and got a 8000 point nid army which I've been power painting since Monday, I've never been able to turn out an army as fast as these are coming along but that's because most of the work is dry brushing.

here's a couple finished pieces.

Image

Image

Image

I'll post pics of the finished army in a week or two.

more to come..

I've also got two more commissions after this for nids.
