Shanon's #'daily'painting.

Postby Lady_Soria » Mon Mar 12, 2012 12:44 pm

So I've finally decided to make this lovely thread since it seems nobody minds that I can't post pic yet, I figure why the heck not. I put quotations around daily because well, despite having massive amounts of time, more or less, I don't have a whole lot of fund, so I will do what I can for now, and hope my financial situation gets better soon. Interviews are difficult when you have issues making eye contact. also I seem to have developed a fondness for injury my hands on Thursdays, last Thursday it was a minor burn on my left hand, the one before that was a a gash on my right index finger that required two stitches.

Anyyyyywayyy, I guess I should get you guys up to speed hmm? I am currently re painting ( again) my dwarfs from the BfSP box set, finally deciding once I get back into Warhammer, I'm having an army of dwarfs to keep my knight company. I'm doing in a similar colour scheme as my Space Marine, stone gray and Imperial purple, expect more gray and less purple. Lets see... last night I finally got around to putting together those two free zombies I got from Mantic from a contest or something ages ago.

Plan for today:

Start base coating my two zombies.

Either start on the base coat for the metallics for me dwarfs ( warriors and hand gunners) or move onto the next coat, haven't decided in which order to do things yet.

Start work on some terrain. ( My brother in law works in at a company that tend to have a lot of throw away foam... can anybody say freebies. :D )


Also, on a final note yes that is how you spell my first name. My parents, I guess figured, since my older sister had an usual name I should have a common name with an unusual spelling. The family joke is my dad ( who is a Scottish immigrant) did not want his daughter named after an Irish river ( my mother is of pure Irish decent so obviously he was not serious.)

:lol: Thanks Blue.

Okay, what I've gotten done so far. Cut some foam and hopefully put it together for a piece of terrain. We'll see if its put together when the glue dries. Black bases another piece of terrain ( soon to be a tower) and started base coating.


Trying to decide if I should work on basing my Space marine or working on my dwarfs or zombies... decisions decisions.
