I just wanted to brag that I've been home for 10 days and in that time I've finished 11 minis. And I have 7 more in progress that will be finished this week for sure, and hopefully in the next few days. It won't last, but it's exciting haha.

That's worth bragging about. Given my average tempo, 11 mini's takes something like half a year... ;)

Although, as always, pictures or it didn't happen! ;)

And, I just finished the next 7 I was talking about. (Well, tomorrow they get varnished and then a couple get bow strings). Pictures should come shortly after that.

The next batches are a bit weird. I have 4 sisters of sigmar, 4 Blood Bowl High elves, a vampire, a necromancer and two ghouls. Not exactly perfect for batch painting.

I was going to post some pictures. But then I remember I'd have to upload them first. So instead I'm going to paint some more. Necromancer and 1 ghoul done. 4 sisters progressing well.

Well, you could never be worse than me.

This morning I finishes the last piece of a Mordheim box I bought when it was published in..... 1999.

Not really a competition I care to win, but I have plenty of minis that I've had since the late 80s that still lack paint. :oops:

I’m waiting for such a guy to come in the post so I can get cracking!

Didn't finish the bloodbowl minis yet (again). But the rest are done. Along with 17 Night Goblins, a Doomdiver, 5 Squigs, 13 snotlings, Skarsnik and Gobla, and 4 pre slotta elves (see, I still paint elves). Two Stone Trolls are nearly done. I've kept up a nice pace, I think I'm still hovering around a mini a day. Currently on the table I have 14 Night Goblins, 5 goblins, and a Marauder Giant. The goblins will go fast, but the giant is going to take some time.

I like, especially the guy with the warhammer, great colour balance.

Getting it done! Those are some nice old-school minis - I think I like the first and third from the left the most :)

Thanks guys.

I had to wait for the primer to dry on the giant, so I finished this.

To bad it's finecast. I think the hair lets an otherwise perfect sculpt down a bit too. Still, even though I complain about the late warhammer models I have to admit this one is pretty nice.

I remember when this hit - such a nice throwback to the old maiden guard models (including the hair!). Finecast is still a bummer but I've come to appreciate it light weight and the fact paint doesn't chip off it.

The hairstyle is fine. But the strands of hair are a little thicker on this one than on the old ones. Which is sad, because finecast would have held finer detail just fine. I'm not sure I like the weight, but the paint thing I like a lot. I'm questioning if I even have to varnish it.

It's a shame she disappeared again already. Bad GW! I like the model. Agreed that some of the details could have been fleshed out more, like the hair. But it's still a lovely model.

I've found Finecast workable but thin elements can be very fragile. Metal for choice.

Nice detail work on the Handmaiden Shannar and I like the greyish metal with the yellowish colours and the flesh tone.
