Finished the caulk on the game mat tonight. the 9 year old is very proud of her textures and has decided she is painting too.

Got some more of my wyche squad painted. The first layer of the bones in the hair, the hair ribbons, the little tubes and the gems on the splinter pistols.

Hey Nappen,

Are those GW craters? I thought I have seen them around before but I am not exactly sure. I bought some sculpy the other day to try and sculpt my own but that is a work in progress that is not turning out very well.

Forgot to post last night-got a bit more done on the wyches and and all the metal bits, bones and such on the hekatrix. Did a test patch on the desert battle mat. Once my son and daughter approves will get to work on that-probably this weekend.

Here is the battle mat I am working on with my daughter. She did the texturing and we are testing the paint scheme.

yep, thought I mentioned that part. It will go with the modular hills/canyons I did in a "badlands" theme.

Yes, this is over in my terrain WIP to, but usually different folks between the two and I have been babbling about this thing over here for the last week or so :wink: Now to start my 4X4 Desert map. Then I have the canvas cut for a 4X6 and 4X4 snow map.

My daughter and I spent the morning with the airbrush and finished the battlemat. Though, when I got it on the table, I realized that my table is about an inch and a half long and wide. Ah well, will just make the next mat oversized :)

Here it is with the "badlands" modular hills.

Today, went to the Hobbit with the kids and grandmom, but first I finished off the touchups on the wych bases and pulled all the sand bases off to prep them to change over to the dark bases that I have decided to go for for my whole army.
Also started putting the caulk on the 4X4 battle mat that will be snow themed

I like the mat Nappen it looks pretty nice and your posters in the Background are awesome. Also wish I had gotten to take paint and models to Grandmas for Christmas...instead I got 2 books and an Xbox to "Share" with the little Bro while sick over Christmas.
Anyways what did you think of the Hobbit and enjoy visiting your Relatives.

We all liked the Hobbit, esp how it ties into LOTR and all the little references. Not sure that it will make three good movies, but two for sure.

Tonight I primed the ork rock band for my older daughter to paint tomorrow while my son and I work on our armies.
