Ending 2017

I'm ending this year with some work in progress.
My first legion project is again on my table and I hope to play some 30K next year.

Happy New Year!

Just checking in.

Not a whole lot going on as far as miniatures, hobby stuff and games goes. And that's fine.
It's near the end of the year and the silly season is upon us.
I was sick for nearly 2 weeks, thankfully his doesn't happen every year.
I've been doing things for the house that we've had come up or that have needed to be done for a while. 
I've had plenty of time to read forums and am getting sick of them again. the attitudes are... Well. I don't care for a fair bit of the posters on a lot of the forums now days. Nothing is ever good enough for some people and they seem to enjoy crying about it. It's always bad on Dakka Dakka but I feel like it's creeping over to Da WAAAAAGH as well. so much bitching and moaning about nothing.
I've left the Warmaster and deleted my account there. I hardly watch my Youtube subscriptions now as well.  I just signed up with  And a few weeks later it seems they are shutting down. I was ready to move platforms completely and reboot my channel but it seems I missed the boat. I'll be looking for the next platform to move to. I want to remove my Youtube channel completely but still want hosted video.
I just got to watch Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and it was a lot of fun.
I've started cleaning out my workshop again. I am still trying to get it sorted out.

That's about it for now. I still live and am looking forward to finding my next project. Looking forward to finding time to paint.

Finished Arrow Boys!

It's taken me way too long to get these done. I finished Sunday night.
I want to say this completes the tribe but there might be bitz for one more mob which should be 10 more Morboys but as of now everything assembled is painted. I expect that if I happen to find those bitz I'll build and paint 10 morboys.  but until then I also feel I can call this project done.
I might like to do just a bit more to the bases but I'll have to look for the flock and tufts of grass I ant to use.  My bases are always a bit bland  and I'd like to do a little better about that.

here's a quick look at the last arrow boys.

I'm planning a nice picture shoot when I get my hands of a better camera.

A few months of painting.

I'm not exactly sure what I've painted recently I've been busy and haven't put in a lot of time for it. 
It's more unorganized than usual.

That one is the reworded Big Boss for my Bonesplitterz  he needed something to make him more interesting.

I've just wrapped up 28 more plastic Grots. I may get two more from a Bitz seller.

I'm in the middle or just past the middle of 30 more arrow boys. A fair bit left to do.
These will complete the tribe.
I did these a while back but I added a step for the new ones.
as you will see a bosses job is never done.

I added a wash of watered down turquoise ink.

It reminds me of those other orks....
From a few years ago.
But for grots I really like it.

5 storm boys for the B&C painting thing.
But I am actually planning to paint another 20 I have that were started but not finished.

Flash Gitz

Really big Dakka.

Some Kannons.
Big guns pack a lot of bang for their points these days.
I'd love to finally add 6 Lobbas to my collection. 

wip Arrow boys. Lots left to do.
This is just 2 of the 30 I have been working on, all of them are as far along as these.
