Surprise, I'm back!

First to explain what exactly happened: My Mother had a really important surgery friday 2 weeks ago. (Implanting some Titanium in her back, they had to cut her back and her belly up! :O ) Everything went fine and she recovered pretty fast, so the doctor let her leave already a week after the surgery. She was back for 2 days, than this Sunday, she realized that some liquid is dripping out of the wound on her belly. Back to the hospital, they saw that the wound was infected by some virus and now she got a sponge in this big wound that pumps out the evil being liquid for the next about 3 weeks. But she's out of serious health problems.

WHAT DOES THIS HAVE IN COMMON WITH ME? Well. I had to take care of my little sisters the last few days, since my father is left alone with them and has still to work, while they had some free days without school. I also spent a lot of time on visiting my mother and helping my dad in their house.

'nuff said. Finally the kids are back in school and I had some free time to paint for the greater evil mind!

I still have to clean a big load of misspaints tomorrow, but I got a good bunch the basic base coat done. Tomorrow I gonna paint the metallic parts and most likely the cloth 'n bags. Let's see.

Good night MiniWarGamers!

I feel like I missed some things with cookies and coffee. :s

Well guys and ladies, I did less than I told I would. I had a kinda lazy day today, mostly getting interrupted by my fussiness while waiting for the packet early the day and later one by some awesome Dota2 shoutcasts... D=

Well all I did was repairing a lot of badly painted spots. Kinda all of them. Tomorrow I gonna paint the metallic parts and than I call my pledge to be done for this week. I just said I paint 10 Wyches, never said how much I do. :D

Next weeks pledge gonna be to finish them, since I realized that I got a lot of free time for the next 4 months, so no need to hurry.

Signing out for today, sleep well MiniWarGamers!

PICTURE TIME!

Early the day I assembled my birds:

Image

They are awesome miniatures, but sadly pretty low on my to-paint list. I want to finish my Wyches and at least the Ravager/Raider for the DM this month, maybe both! :O

Speaking of Wyches, my ladies are now fully colored.

Image

Image

Image

I decided to use a simple pattern for the metallic, non-weapon parts in my army. Bronze for the lower squads, silver for elite/fast attack squads and lower squad champions, gold for HQ, Heavy-Support and elite squad champions choices.

Next week I will further highlight, wash and awesomemize them, but I want to spend my next 2 days on assembling 2 Ravagers and a Venom until I take a brush in my hands again.

That's me done for the day ladies and gentlemen! Good night!
