Just found out that I won a Beasts of War competition! :D I won five of the first fifty Dark Legionnaire models for Warzone Resurrection!! Time difference sucks though, every time I get on Ventrilo (around 3 hours total on it) I've been on my own :( Need to get some painting done, this weekend, touch up the basecoat of my Juggernaut, assemble the Widowmakers and prime the Ariadna Starter Pack!

Wow this week flew by!! I'm now finished school! :D Junior Cert starts in around ten days so I'll be studying for that. Will try do some hobby stuff tomorrow. Maybe get those Widowmakers on their bases and maybe even primed... Last week I managed to tidy up the Juggernaut's basecoat and prime the Ariadna Starter Pack that I've had lying around for a while. I have to say I'm a bit nervous about building/painting those warzone models. Pretty small pieces and a lot of clean up to be done. Also no instructions :( Sorry for the wall of text, pics up tomorrow!

Wow haven't updated this in a while :oops:
Just back from a Warmachine tournament, managed to lose all 4 games but one was a by so I didn't come last! Been working on the Dwarves from my Battleforce Challenge recently. Will post pics here soon. When I was in town I bought a box of Doom Reavers for my growing Khador army. I also picked up a handful of paints! Enough to pretty much finish of with my Tyranids! Will have to restrain myself from breaking them out so I finish my Dwarves in time! At the minute it doesn't look very likely, only 5/27 models completed :| Pics to come!

You can do it Easy. Also congrats on the competition win and I feel you about it seeming that no one is ever on ventrillo when you are.

Yeah I feel guilty not having been on vent lately, seeing as I'm one of the only people from yurp that goes on there.

But you can do it man, just sit yourself down, take a unit and go through the entire unit one colour/stage at a time. When you feel that it is killing your soul and you feel like you can't/don't want to continue, keep sitting down and keep on painting! Sit there and paint for at least 3-4 hours straight, bathroom breaks are allowed but no food or water untill you're done.

Then just do this same thing every day for the rest of the month, you should be finished with time to spare!
Time will tell... Sooner or later... Time will tell.

Word Bearers 10000pts[89% Painted]

Empire 5000pts[95% Painted]

FYI, I'm Dutch, not Finnish, I just live there.

That's what I did last night, building and rebuilding my Vendetta. Of course I was up until almost 4 AM :)

And we're back!
Was in my FLGS earlier for a fun Warmachine Who's The Daddy tournament where you bring a 25 point list and in each game you are assigned a colossal or gargantuan from a different army! Over the three games I got to use the Stormwall, Kraken and Worldwrath. I also bought a Winter Guard Officer and Standard, Battle Mechaniks and I won a Manhunter solo! I also picked up some Army Painter black primer and some Nuln Oil and Ceramite white for the White Scars Space Marine force Ill be restoring! I also bought the first 20 issues of Warhammer Monthly, the old comic Games Workshop used to publish, off a local player and Ill hopefully be getting the next 20 or so in a couple of months, anyway, plan on doing some painting tonight and need to try and keep myself motivated to post here!
Curahee!

On holidays with no minis for a while. When I get home I plan on finishing my Tyranids and getting all my Warmachine stuff assembled and primed
