Well, this past week the weather has been so beautiful here in the Maritimes that I have been spending most of my evenings outside and have forgone the brush. Well, last night that ended as I couldn't bear the look of the half painted venom, primed Lelith and almost-complete DM marine looking at me, with sorrow. So, here are the results from last night, let me know what you think!

Venom - Blue or Orange just wasn't working out for me... so heres my Third attempt...
Image

Lelith - slow... slow start...

Random skaven?

More pics are up on my blog, hoping to get some better ones of the Venom this weekend.

Well not too much to really comment on... Just a lot of base coats. :P
I do like the hazard stripes on the chainsword and the blue glow looks good but its a tad blurry.

Just loose the curtain in the background there and your camera will focus on the mini. Couldn't hurt to use a piece of white paper in the background too.

I'm digging the light Dark Eldar. It'll be a nice change from all the black everyone else has.

Why oh why does the Skaven make me think of Master Splinter?

Yeah, most of my Painting lately has been basecoating.. hoping to make some more progress shortly. And yeah, I had been using my window ledge for a while, but I didn't realize how much the trim got int the way.. going to have to find another place to take pictures.. and thanks! it was my first attempt at hazard stripes!

Thanks! I wanted to try something different... we'll just have to see how it turns out!

Well, finally had a chance to do some painting, RL has been making it difficult to say the least...

Was able to get some progress done on Lelith and just have some detail work left to do.

A few more pics up on the blog, and also got some updates from a friend who has started both Orks and Daemons.

let me know what you think!

Cheers!

looks great so far...I hate to seem like I'm on a theme here, but the colours in the photo make me think of April o' Niel in the 80s cartoon.

That's funny! I forget if it was Eastman or Laird, but one of them was actually dating and I believe briefly married to April O'Neil, hence her being in the comics and show.

Thanks! Haha, well, it wasn't intentional!

And now what has been seen cannot be unseen... haha

well, this weekend was mostly assembling, as I received a box of warriors and scourge. hopefully tonight I can get the second half of the warriors assembled and start priming.

Well, last night I managed to finish assembling the warriors, without weapons... I learned the hard way that its easier to add weapons later than to paint around them...

hopefully tonight I will be able to get them primed / base coated, along with my scourge.

Like the entire DE range, the models are amazing. I wasn't too sure if I was going to include them or not, but was tempted too much at my local shop... oh well.. maybe I will have will power next time.. haha

Well, its been a while since I have posted... Kinda got into a painting slump near the middle of the month with RL commitments and the Diablo 3 beta distracting me, but I did manage to get my deathmatch mini done and have been getting the starting layers done on the rest of the Warriors and Scourge.

Heres the deathmatch entry:
Image

Also, over on my blog, I have started a point-based goal system with my friend Kroxx. It doesn't use the GW point value, but instead uses an arbitrary value depending on size of the model. For example, an infantry model is worth 1 point while a transport would be 10 points.

Anyways, I have set a goal of 15 points which would see the rest of my Warriors and scourge done by the end of May... should be interesting.

Quick update: I ended up taking a short hiatus from the hobby, mainly due to Diablo 3, but I have taken advantage of the sale before GW's price increase and have lots to keep me going:

I am hoping to update more than I have this past month, so we shall see.
