Where have I been? I had a wedding on Friday, and all day yesterday and last night my wife took over my office so I didn't get much painting done. However, I totally reorganized parts of my office and my bits room...I spent hours doing it. Today (tonite really) will have to be a late one, I still haven't even started my DE for the Deathmatch!

I worked on some terrain with my 7 year old daughter yesterday. We built her another doll house, this time out of the recycling bin. There is nothing better than sitting down at the table and painting with your kids!

The dread distracted me and I totally forgot about this... :lol:

I can't wait to have kids to do stuff like this with them. Really cool!

Blue it's the best! Thanks guys.

I tried my hand at NMM on the Dreads Plague-ball things and the center grill, what do you guys think? I was going for a weathered, subdued tone but I hope I didn't get too far under the radar.

Really nice work mate, I really love the puss zits on the Dread. Did you use glazing to get the highlights???

When the new 6E box set comes out, I think I'm going to have to challenge someone to build and paint one faction over a weekend. I did the Orks in one night, and my daughter was still up all night and not sleeping. Played in a tourney the next day with it, really fun time.

That's cool of you Dez to build doll houses with your daughter.

We may have a challenge, Ocean!

Last night I had an idea to work on a conversion, and I gathered up a bunch of bits and went to work. It didn't work out the way I wanted...and I ended up scrapping the idea. Maybe the inspiration will come back to me today ;)
