Well, I have been painting. I have started, for the first time, to concentrate on an army. I am committing to my dwarf army, but right now, I am having trouble with the paint scheme. I know what I want one of my colors to be (old GW Hawk Torquise), but the accents are throwing me right now. I will have a couple of pictures up of test minis that I have been doing. I bought a lot of the dwarf warriors that I am working on second-hand. I thought that they had been cleaned up, but alas, no, so I need to file down some mold lines and such.
For some reason, I love dwarfs, but I will admit, these dwarf warrior models from GW, could use some work. The capes are terrible. What should be a the backside of a cape is solid plastic. They don’t look terrible, but the could be better. I have read that a new dwarf books could be here in January 2014. We will see. It has been 7 years since the last book in 2006. I will work on this. I will finish this. Will I get to play? I don’t know.
Last night I got together with another local painter and we painted at Haunted Games Cafe in Ft. Collins. I planned to finish up some stuff for my Dreadfleet game (and about 70% done with it), but I left it all at home. Luckily, I had my Blood Bowl team with me. I am still not very happy with the models, but I worked on the trollslayers last night, and I am least liking my paint job on those. You know you are a dwarf fan when you are shading a dwarf butt-crack. 😀
The upcoming holiday, I have a few days home alone. I hope to get some painting done and excavate under the stairs and organize all my mini stuff under there. Also, today I should be receiving my shipment of Bones from Reaper. Many, many minis headed my way.
