I finally came over here and will see about trying to do something most days. Maybe the #4 days a week paint. :D

Today I laid the first metal, cloth and skin coats on my mini of the month model. Going to watch the two towers tonight with my son who just had surgery and can't walk around much and will try to do some painting whilst watching lots of fighting and blood and gore.

Movie watching goes good with painting my daughter's hippee marines :wink:

I forgot how long the two towers was. Daughter fell asleep but finished everthing but the basing and the missle launcher for her tactical marines.

Tonight is the Return of the King. Will paint something during that :) or maybe make all the little flowers for the bases. This is the model I did as a joke for an all comers deathmatch to match my space marines gone wild waterslide terrain build. For the story behind the peace loving marines: viewtopic.php?f=133&t=75785
I guess my punishment for laughing at the emperor is that my 9 year old daughter decided she was finally ready to play (Yeah!) but wanted an army like this...

Holy.... O_o what mini did you use for pyramid head? I can't decide if it looks more like a GW troll or a PiP Troll.

Thanks, I took a spare column corner I had made out of plaster, then green stuffed the side flanges, bolts and the pyramid on the back. Oh, yeah, haven't shown the back. My plan is take the MoM photo this afternoon when it gets a little brighter. Cold and raining right now.

It is a rat ogre I got as a bit from the starter set. The hardest thing is the skin is so smooth it is near impossible to get any depth to it. Ended up drybrushing 3 lighter shades onto it.

I got some more work done on my halloween group build and my modular hills. Should be able to get them both done this weekend. On the group build, I have to install the panel so it fits with the source lighting I painted in (you can see the panel in the lower middle of the graveyard). On the hills, I need to flock, paint rocks, that sort of thing. I am not real happy with the last line I put in (the thin orange one). I think it looked better before, but not sure I could cover it up, so will go with it. It does have the feel of the badlands though.
