    And now for the group shot again for progress:

    2 down 8 to go.

    Started working on Doktor Grog this morning. A really nice model and he has a pegleg so works well with my crew. will post more pics when i make a bit more significant progress.
  2. Pirates of the High Seas ! - 08

    Yarrr, all ye landlubbers ! i managed to get a bit more done, so a quick update for Ahab, he's looking much meaner now that im working on his hand weapon. The ork nobz boxed set has some really good pieces which are well defined and so easy to paint.
  3. Pirates of the High Seas ! - 07

    Didn't get alot done last night, managed to do most of the harpoon arm (except the harpoon) and his shoulder pads so now his body is finished. Might work on the axe and the hat tonight after finishing the harpoon. Im happy how he is progressing along, these are really nice models to paint.
  4. Week 16: Bat swarms

    This weekend has been our clubs annual show (Legionary 2010) so it has been a bit tricky to fit painting around all the work that a show requires. The show was at a new venue and I think it was a qualified success. Although it was at a smaller venue than normal, it was in the centre of the city and therefore more amenable for those without cars. Parking was difficult, which affected the traders most significantly. Our club is currently reviewing whether hosting a show is worth all the effort. ...
  5. Pirates of the High Seas ! - 06

    Well i managed to finish his main torso and belt etc, then i started work on his arm. Im not 100% happy with the gold nmm on the arm but im still working on it to clean it up and it to how i want it to look. I think i have a bit too much midtone and highlights on it, i need to bring the colour back down with a few dark glazes. Still it's getting there.

  6. Pirates of the High Seas ! - 05

    Now, onto the second ork. This guy will be called Ahab, im going to stick with a similar colour scheme throughout the whole gang with blue stripey trousers. Will see about the rest of the colours but blue will be their primary colour. Anyway onto the more interesting part:

  7. Marines

    <p>Still working on my plague marine. Seems like its been a life time. No, really. I strarted the base coats of the greens and the metal back in the mid 90's. It wasn't until I saw the model Todd Swanson had done that I began puting two &amp; two together.</p>
    <p>Even then it's still taken me forever to act upon it.</p>

  8. ReaperCon: Hard at it

    I'm still plugging along on my entries for ReaperCon.  As of today I have one that will be totally ready.  I would have had another one finished but I dropped him as I was spraying the finish and his arm came loose so I had to fill the seam with milliput and need to repaint.  I have another one that's near completion.  Tried my first attempt at lining with him, what I learned is that it is better to line before you perfect the paining (my bad).  Needless to ...
  9. Pirates of the High Seas ! - 04

    For some reason i missed the chain on his back, and so i painted it up last night. Here are some pics of the model with painted chain lol , i tried to brighten up the squig a little but my blood red is unusable so i ended up using the base colour red with bleach bone highlights and then glazing over with red again to bring it back in.


  10. My cherry......Hello World

    <p>Well, I've done it! This is my first blog (pronounced BLOOOoooogga).</p>
    <p>I'll miss my cherry. I can never go back. I can never again&nbsp;say I've never done it.&nbsp; Oh well, I guess you got to grow up sooner or later.</p>
    <p>Now, will I continue to follow up with this? I don't know, it would take a commitment that I'm sure I'm not prepared to make. Also I never know what it is that will come out of my mouth. I'm sure I'm going to offend ...
