Thanks guys =D

started working on a couple things

built some elf archers for my son - I snagged the majority of a battalion box, some DE stuffs, some WE stuffs all from a fella on wyrd FB for $60 so I'm pretty happy. DS' gonna have a ton of elves able to die to my skaven now >:D

Did a little more work on my Jabberwocky - is just really another basecoat layer and affixing it to a decent stand so's to be able to paint it. I'm monkeying with some irridiscent medium to put over the whole thing, or to mix in with the paints (haven't figured out which to do yet). Anyway, it's gonna be fabulous snickers

no pic updates, but I did get all my paints sorted!

Started as a general, I need to put these things away sort of cleaning, ended up completely resorting, cleaning the caps of all my GW pots, remarking and adding into the PaintRack app I downloaded (well worth it btw). I found I've only accidentally bought 16 pots of the same colour :P

Also built some cavalry for my #3 son's HEs. Dunno if they're going to be painted anytime soon.

And while I was sorta procrastinating working on my 2' X 2' Luna Wolves board, I started puttering around with the 5 hexwraiths I've had on my desk for like... a year now. Sigh. At least all my "to do" bin items are actually IN a "to do" bin now lol

(WIP Spam be ware)

Took some pics. Strange turn of events. I guess I just don't feel like building terrain atm or something, haven't gotten far on my Luna Wolves Display board. Also some depression because there's no way on God's green earth it'll be ready for tomorrow's Armies on Parade thing at my (almost) LGS, even if I could go, which I can't. Sigh.

So since I'm trying to bulk up my son's HE Army I took this stuff I got in:
Image

And started building instead:

Image

Now he's got another unit of Calvary, two chariots (kinda need to work more on them, but keeping apart til I can prime/paint), and a unit of Spearmen:

Image
Image
Image

Also, took a pic of current state of Jabberwock, he's on his second basecoat atm:
Image

got more rats in (because apparently you can never have enough of the little buggers):
Image

Deathrunners built - aka Gutter runners for my AoS army (I think) anyway I just like them so meh using them.
Image

So all was going pretty well, up til this point, aside from loosing various pieces, and figuring out I need a yoke for the metal chariot... Then disaster =(

Image

Got my airbrush out, confirmed my second one was still broken sadly. And that the nozzle was bent! grrr still not sure how that happened. Quite annoyed. No point fixing the broken part of it now with that addition sadly. Went back to my oldest and first airbrush, only really useable for priming anyway, and discovered of course all the damn bottles have disappeared! and it was too late to go to the store. Waiting for hubby to get home today so I can take the car to the store and get a couple extras. I'm sure I'll find the damn bottles as soon as I buy more. That's how it goes.

So, yeah, atm I think the paint gods hate me :(

Err so, yeah, I've been mostly working on my big Swamp board. With some Elves on the side.

Starting to make my plants now for the board. And got water effects on order. I was going to use 2 part resin but decided to stick with woodland scenics for two reasons: 1. I know how it reacts to inks etc and 2. the main reason, I already have some and I don't want to mix two types of water effects in the same area just in case!

So, not much updating, just working on 4 night terrors (Malifaux) that I've put together, still working on the elves for #3 son's army and making some trees for my swamp board. I'm going to need to order more water effects, as I want it to be thicker than it is now. Sadly I've used up all my hoard and can't get more til later. Hopefully a few more days. Will give the first layer time to dry anyways.

So: Swamp board.

Honestly it's done, except I need more water effects :( sadly I've decided it's not deep enough in enough sections

And I don't have enough to water effects to complete it to my requirements atm. So, starting next week I'll be snagging 40% coupons and heading to hobby lobby and michael's. I may have to 'mix' water effects after all, Michael's near me doesn't carry woodland scenics they only have the two part envirotex lite stuffs. Anyway, it'll continue after this hiatus! Needs more time to dry anyway - it's taking a lot longer than it should, but that's likely down to our weather etc and the variations in depth at play.

It's very hard to get it to stay one depth with these boards sadly. They're simply not all flat. Even though I used my level to shim sections and what not, I must simply not have poured enough at one go, to have it go all over the areas it was meant to cover. And it still shrinks so. Needs more!

Otherwise, I've gotten my night terrors almost done basecoated. I went for a dark purple instead of black. Will have to take some pics tomorrow when I'm off.

Just got back earlier from taking about 21 toddlers under 4 to the Pumpkin patch lol They had a blast. So did we, really, but God I'm getting old for this stuff!

Thanks!

So excited - it's our RPG night lol but I want to play on the board sooo badly. So we'll probably set it up for Saturday and get a game in.

:D

That board would be epic for some sort of huge swamp monster encounter, or a black dragon or something. Provided you have mini's to represent the PC's and stuff.

Oooh yeah that'd be awesome!

I have a bunch of minis we use for our campaigns but didn't think about a swamp dragon/beastie >:D
