I finished 12 Firewarriors.

Next, I'm going to finish my Commander. He's already half painted and it shouldn't take more than a week to finish the paintjob. I really can't remember why I stopped painting him in the first place...

I finished my Tau Commander and it took me even less time than I had thought. His weapons are magnetized.

I have to say that I'm still not a big fan of Finecast models. There are still some small holes in the model that I had not noticed when I assembled the miniature and some surfaces look a bit uneven (however, I assume that this effect is also highlighted by the varnish I used).

I think the next thing I'm going to paint is the terrain from the Shadow War Armageddon box. I'll try to keep it quick and simple.

He looks pretty cool! Magnetizing is really worth the effort, especially, since we have to get used to the new weapon stats of 8th edition!

I wonder why you've chosen to put a Space Wolves helmet on the base. ;-P

I started painting one piece of terrain from the SWA box. It's not finished (some metal parts are not painted and I'm not sure whether to paint the tubes), but I think it becomes clear what kind of scheme I'm going for. I really try to not go overboard with all those little details, but it's really hard.
Image

Sometimes I just can't resist.
Image

Moreover, I realised that I had forgotten to paint my Tau Commander's knife. So here it is:
Image

Rummaging through my Tau bits I also found six burst cannons that I hadn't completed yet. So I finished them, too.
Image

AND: I also started painting my Riptide.
Image

All in all, this was really productive week (paintingwise).

Unfortunately, I didn't have the time to finish my Riptide. However, I used my hobby time to assemble and prime the Nurgle Marines and Poxwalkers from the Dark Imperium box. I'm going to spend the next two weeks in Sweden (holidays - yeah!) and don't really want to break the Riptide on the trip (and I don't want to take any spray cans with me, so I had to prepare everything beforehand). I'm not sure whether I'll have a viable internet connection there, so I don't know whether I'll be able to share my progress.

And you will have to find a new picture hosting site because Photobucket just changed ita policy without warning so that we can't embed images in another website without paying a fortune per year. My own WiP is messed up because of that! :evil: I share your pain.

As it turns out the Internet connection here is better than at my home (which doesn' t really mean much). However, I have to use my mobile and I hate this thing. Let''s see if I was able to upload a picture on imgur:

As you can see, I was only able to insert the link to my picture. Could anyone tell me what I have to do to make the pif ture visible in this thread?

when you upload it, copy the link to the picture and put it between the ['img]['/img] tags (without the apostrophes) I've edited it for you :)

That should sort it :)

Thanks Dheiti!

For some reason I had no access to the Internet the whole day (I guess the Internet gods don't like it when people get too optimistic).
