Update: 1st IG unit bought, painting and soon to be finished. anyone know how to get good quality pics with a samsung s3 as hat is THE only cam I have available, I have tried but horribly failed and everything looked looked oozing blurs

On top of that...my box of models arrived...repairing them all is..not...fun...and I have ran out of plastic glue...bugger. So I will work out what models get priority to be repaired :D

campaign map - map by me, look back at it not the best work I done but it served its purpose as the glorious 13th nightwatch beat everyone :D yay go NW and overpowered librarian sternguard drop pod of death! Show those damn space elves the might of the flamer and the meltiness of a melta! (wraith knight got nothing on these guys).

As for pictures I would love too but as I said; anyone know how to get good pics with samsung s3?

Any way the unit of FB are nearly done ( not sure how to base them....I am a bit snowed out...if I get pictures you will understand what I mean)

=======edit================================================================
but here is a list of what has been painted in the past month or so
razor back, 10 scouts (based and ready to go), 10 scouts in early painting stages (I still have another 20 or so left so guess whats going up for grabs on the forum! email me if you want more details on what I will be selling/trading)

as for the eldar this is being thrown to the curb, I thought I would be "oh sweet space elves with big butt avatar" but all I could do was go..."bugger this army they are weak as a grot on steroids". Tust me I remain unbeaten by eldar after their codex, as soon as I pop their deathstar units they just can't hold it together.

as for the other armies:
vampire counts- getting there just repairing models and prepping them for my paint scheme (just go watch Wow:WOTLK trailer and that is what I want to achieve (glowing eyes, dirty/iced over wargear))

Isengard- troll, shaman, cheiftan, one or two pikemen and a handful of wargs done. but got the riders of the wargs and the rest of the pikemen need to be painted. These may appear on the trade forum after they are done as I just couldn't get into the system. I altered alot fo the hobbit story line with that troll, Grutolk the hero slayer (killed gandalf, aragon, gimli, thorin with the oakshield and a big name just goes with him and his mighty ranged stone throwing, don't ask...)

IG, list is written up and models coming together nicely

as for the rest well If I get pics you will see.

happy gaming
