inorite, I figured that the whole idea of the service was that they had the PDF's at hand to send straight away..

Normally they do, which is pretty funny. I would call them back and complain, maybe they'll have to send you a whole box. Their customer service is usually good like that.

Man I love that griffin. I also really like your painting style, nice and clean.

I think I've found a groove now..

Before pics for my griffon can be seen in my previous update...
Not had the best lighting this evening as my wife decided to spring clean and put my DL lamp away :/

Image

Unfortunately I forgot to take a before picture of this one, but it's been sitting around for about 6 months with just a white base coat..

Image

Hopefully some better lighting in my pictures during the next update.

No painting update for yesterday, spent the day at the cemetary. Didn't feel like painting much in the evening.

However I did make some progress today with my halfling ranger.

Cemeteries are not nice places. But the Halfling Ranger looks awesome.

That's true, though unfortunately its the only way I can spend time with my son.

On a lighter note, thanks for the comment. Should have an update on my griffon later today.

I know I said there would be an update for my Griffon today, but I changed my mind and decided to start construction of my Talos..
The reason of it being black, is I pre-primed the sprues while waiting for the assembly instructions to come through.

Me and the wife house sitting this week so hopefully I can get a load of painting in.
