I'm alive! - Eveything

I'm going to try and get back in the habit of regular postings, as i have been ramping up the painting progress lately, but i'm struggling to keep track of it all!

Most exciting news is that I've taken a dive into the world of airbrushing, grabbed a cheap package from Amazon and getting the hang of it now. Really handy for priming/base coating as the Scottish weather has been unpredictable to say the least. Can also see it being a great tool for getting tanks etc painted up.

Over the last few months I've been painting Star Wars Imperial Assault, Epic 40k, Flames of War and building some terrain, so just going to dump what photos i have below, and hopefully i'll be better at documenting stuff as it happens in the future!

Coming up;

I've ordered the Flames of War v4 Starter set as I've got a soft spot for World War 2 desert tank warfare.

5 models left to paint from the Imperial Assault - Return to Hoth expansion

Epic Ork slow grow army is coming along, a couple more clans and some vehicles and i can call it 'done'

Epic Imperial Guard, Space Marine and Chaos - finishing a few bits off and then i can eBay the excess as i don't think i'll ever realistically use it all.

Terrain - going to have a clear out so that i'm left with only what i need for a 6x4 Desert, Urban and Temperate, 6mm, 15mm and 28mm tables as it all takes up soooo much space!

Imperial Assault!

Shifting to a different Empire for a moment...

Spotted a partially painted boxed set of FFG's Imperial Assault game pop up on ebay for what i considered a decent price.

Snapped it up and now i have the task of completing this fella's work.

Looks like we both watch Sorasto's painting guides > https://www.youtube.com/user/Sorastro
So the task was a little less daunting (just had the pressure of keeping the high standard up!)

Can't say I've quite matched his cleanness, but if i can knock out 10 models in a day i'm happy!

My contribution so far (only 12 models and the AT-ST to go!);

Necromunda - Coming Soon!

Ok, looks like we are finally (nearly) ready to kick off a Necromunda campaign.

I picked up some bits on eBay, including a decent amount of Cawdor, Ratskin and Original Box stuff, for not much £, and to complement that, a nice 4x4 city themed gaming mat.

I have to say, Cawdor wouldn't have been my first choice, but the minis were effectively free, and they will mix well with my Chaos cultists if i need to expand the gang later. (still need to base them up properly, but here's a sneak peak)

Support! - Heralds of Ruin

Happy new year!

Anyway... Having vowed i wouldn't buy anything new, and instead concentrate on painting what i had in my collection (with the aim to sell on the excess) I once again find myself sniping stuff on eBay like the bad old days...

But i need it! Or rather my squishy guardsmen need it.

I figured they wouldn't last long out there without some beefy support, so decided to hunt down a Sentinel, Ogryn and weapons team for them.

The sentinel i found was pre-painted in a scheme that fits my own, so figured it would fit right in after a bit of basing, giving me the chance to freshly paint the other two.

They were both done from start to finish today (don't you love holidays!) and i'm really happy with them, the Ogryn was great fun to paint, love these older sculpts - might need to get a few more! (there is a dedicated Heralds of Ruin Ogryn list after all!)

Next up I've got a painted Chimera and Commissar on the way, and a hectic week of gaming - so if i remember i'll post up some photos/battle reports.
