OOHH Nurgle goodness. Sorry to hear about the loss of pictures. Still guess some Spr..Errr Summer cleaning was in order. Don't want the Inquisition finding out after all.

The Drone looks like its going to be a ton of fun to paint. Also saving the Lord of Contagion for last?

And uh, dumb question here. Whats A Solitaire? Like the Model looks cool but I can't say ive seen it.

Love the solitaire model.

It is a Harlequin HQ. Sort of the messenger/representative of the laughing God. Plays him in the "shows" but they walk alone and apart. Lots of good fluff on them in the old harlequin codex.

That is awesome, I ended up buying one of the Wooden Army painter paint stands personally. Probably more expensive but I must admit the thing is very sturdy.

And more points? Pfffff, never...

Looks great. If I had a permeant paint station I would do the same. For the last couple of years I have been working on my cutting mat on the living room foot rest :)
