    Whoah...that popped it up several levels. Amazing what some additional colors can do.

    it was an intimidating thing to start, but I home it looks sufficiently intimidating now.

    Look great. Those are effective little bases. The tiny red flowers are a smart touch to integrate the figures to their environment.
    Really nice job on the boots. They would be far more worn & beaten than the rest of the armor, wouldn't they?

    Woops, seem like I fell of the edge of the Earth there again for a while. Some time has passed, but I haven't been sitting still. September was filled for the most part with an awesome trip around BC in Canada, and in October I had some weekends away, including a two-day excursion to Essen Spiel 2018. Man, that was a blast again as usual.

    Anywhooo, the fruits of my labour:

    First up, I had some progress on the Leviathan. Black undercoat as usual, red basecoat, and the drybrush highlights + washes & glazes.
    I have him some striping on his right torso as it seems I have become addicted to masking tape. But damn, that beast is all curves & angles, and in the end, I had to make a compromise between either super-straight lines that lay a bit uncomfortable on the overall shape, or go with more balanced proportion, but not having them all straight at all angles. I chose the latter and I'm OK with the result, but not super-duper happy either. Ah well we'll see how it goes with decals & weathering...

    Also, the Stormtalon rebuild got some good progress, highlights are done, and weathering is coming along nicely. I must say, that ugly duckling is growing on me as the painting progresses.



    And I have also been painting some other minis as well as assembling.

    First up, the five standard Party Guests from Monster Slaughter, a kickstarted boardgame that arrived the same day I came back from Essen Spiel. Awesome game, and a bucket load of cool minis.
    It was a quick & easy paint job, done in a few hours. i think I have some 40-dd minis to go on that boardgame.

    Then, the Eisenkern APC. Now thàt was a joy to build. Way more intricate than GW models and more akin to the military modeling kits of old. Loads of moving parts as well. Turrets move and extend, all hatches open, there's even an engine under the bonnet!
    Oh, the windows look a wit weird as they have a coat of liquid mask on them to protect them from painting.

    And last but not least, a squad of Primaris Reavers and a captain, and a 10-man Tartaros Terminator squad. half GW, half Forgeworld. The white shoulder bits on the GW ones are from shapeways and have a 3D BA symbol on them. I actually had enough to give the Forgeworld ones some as well, but then I assume they would never be able to be selected for the FW website anymore as they have recently have removed the photos of my Spartan which had the metal replacement tracks... :-/



    Anyways, I'm back in the saddle and boy I sure have some catching up to do by reading the threads from you folks. Cheers!

    Hey Meph, good to see you back at it and posting.

    How was Essen Speil?

    Great work on the all American Monster Squad crew, will look awesome on the gameboard.

    Looks like you have your hands full of Marines there for a while...keen to see what you do with those Tartaros Termies, I have a strange soft spot for those minis for some reason.

    It seems the site's spam filter caught my email address and wrongfully imprisoned it, hence the tardy update. But the dear admins have found the issue and promptly fixed it. Yay!

    Oh hell yeah, the red will never be gone!
    I've actually been slowly gathering enough non-GW minis that will make a great Imperial Guard contingent. Well, who am I kidding, enough for a small army, lol. Actually, it would be handy if I lay 'm all out to see what I'va ctually got, becaus ethe stack of boxes filled with minis has been growing slowly but steadily under my desk.
    I've been pondering a colour scheme for them as well... Wehrmacht grey? Olive drab, desert, WW1 French blue-grey, heavy camo..; so many choices!

    Cheers, mate! Essen Spiel was two days of madness as usual. 1st day saw a lot of specific games, demo'd several, and the second day I spend going through every booth in the miniature & painting halls. Man, there's so much spread around 6 enormous expo halls, you easily need all 4 days to see all of it. But two days is just enough to spend one day on a specific, researched, route, and use the second day to browse around things you noticed the day before. For boardgames, I bought Albedo + expansion, and discovered an awesome Chinese game Crossroads of Heroes. Definitely the prettiest game I've seen in a long time, and damn fun to boot.
    Found two gorgeous prints at an artist's booth, and bought the FW exclusive old-style Land Speeder and a HH Javelin Land Speeder, plus a female Predator and an Alien mini over at the AVP booth. So I came home with some nice loot.

    And to my pleasant surprise, the box of Monster Slaughter was waiting for me when I arrived home, which was nice. Lots of minis still to paint for that one. And I'd better get a move on, as in a month or two I will get a huge amount of awesome minis of Hate, which I kickstarted.

    Oh, and in Essen I managed to demo the prototype of Orc Quest, which I also kickstarted. I was pleasantly surprised that the game is as good as I had hoped, and I didn't just back it for only the minis, lol, which are also awesome.

    Good times ahead!

    But besides all that, I still have enough unpainted BA stuff to keep my busy until my pension.
