    Default stlm's trials and errors.

    Hello guys and gals.
    I have been in and out of the hobby of painting miniatures too many times, and I have owned Warhammer for as long as I can remember.
    My only problem have been consistency, so I have started far more projects then I have finnished. Always painting with an army in mind, but this time I have decided to paint just to paint. If it at some point turns into an army or anything like it, that would be awesome. If it doesn't I would be ok with that, as long as my painting improves.
    So I am starting this plog to get some more motivation and to keep track of my progression. Sorry for the textwall, I promise to find some pictures later today.

    Regards
    Stian

    Time for a small update. I tried to find some old projects, but decided to only post new stuff here.
    So here is what I'm going to be working on in the future.

    I will finnish the Tohaas first, since I am waiting for some more Aleph to arrive.
    The first base is still very WIP, and I am currently trying to figure out how to get the green parts to look more fluid (Like the brown parts on the second base).
    Can't seem to recall how I did it the last time, I thought I knew though.

    Good call on painting for paintings sake IMO, I'm in the same boat, I got back into the hobby thinking I'd collect up a small army then buy the rules and life would be peachy, but I got bored of painting so many similar models in the same colour schemes, these days I find it difficult to finish a whole squad without getting bored let alone an army, variety is the spice of life as they say

    Your pics arent showing up for me at the moment but sounds like infinity stuff? I look forward to seeing it

    That is kind of why I wanted some infinity for Christmas, so that I might get to play something if I figure out that I want to. Not too many miniatures, and it was refreshing with something new.
    Hmm, something weird happened to the pictures the first time. I think it is working now though.

    And I prepared the rest of the bases for priming. I fear some of the bases might be too cluttered.

    I like the black but I think it could hide alot of the detail, perhaps just the cloth sections as black could work, the base looks cool too, I like the slimey look to it

    Thanks, I am considering to do all the armor plates in red or another colour. I am aslo thinking about changing the skin/face colour for the rest of my Tohaa.

    Small update.
    I consider this one to be 97% done, I have cut some corners, but I figured that I just had to finnish something to get the ball rolling again.
    I also visited my local gamingclub to bump my motivation and I met a lot of nice people and saw several awesome minis.

    He is a little rough around the edges, but he is an ok tabletop standard and I am pleased with how he turned out.
    Now I just have to figure out how to translate the scheme to the rest of the gang.

    Thank you, I will sort out some things I am not too happy with on my next mini. Like the skin and such, and in the end I hope I will have some cool lookng Tohaas.

    Thank you, so do to be honest. I fear that some of the bases are a little too cluttered and that the colours might clash. I will see how it turns out when I get home from uni today.

    Slow update, I have finished one of my Tohaas. I have also primed the rest and based them.
    I feel like I rushed parts of him, but it feels good to have finished a miniature.

    A friend of mine is planning on teaching me how to play KoW of 8th ed, so I have to do some army glueing and maby some painting this easter. Even though I said that I would stay away from army painting. I guess I will mostly glue stuff togheter and then paint only the minies that I want to paint.
    I think that I will use other colours than red/yellow on the rest, but I will keep the finnished ones red and yellow for flavor.
