WIPs & Space Hulk

The unseasonably warm and dry October weather this past week was too good to pass up, spray-primer-wise. So I sat down and assembled a bunch of stuff, as well as getting Shoatima prepped and based. I also did an initial color test of a dark elf spearman. WIP pics below.

As promised, I pulled the Space Hulk pics off the camera. I've posted the better ones below as well, but I'm afraid there isn't a lot of detail to see.


The base is some cork on a washer. The exposed part of the washer will be painted like water, as if the otter is standing next to a stream or river.

The completed Blood Angels from Space Hulk

Lightning Claws!

Genestealers (complete)

Dark Elf color test. The contrast in the pic is a bit high. For example, the shield is a mix of Chainmail Silver (VGC) & Black (P3), giving it a slight metallic sheen. The base is snow done with baking soda and glue.

I also got 24 Warrior of Minas Tirith assembled and primed. They are from the same ROTK set as the 48 orcs.

SPACE HULK: Delivered!


I finished the last of the Genestealers at Sunday's painting club meeting. They were tabletop all the way, but I don't think I embarrassed myself TOO much with the paint jobs. I got a layer of Testor's Dullcoate on them Monday afternoon and handed them over to my friend during Monday night's gaming session. It was his birthday to boot, so it was a nice surprise present for him.

I tried to take a few quick pics, but I don't think they came out very well. When I get a chance to D/L them from the camera, I'll see if any are worth posting.

Ah well, on to more fun things. Next up, I think I'll try and get Shoatima ready for my wife. Then, we'll see. Perhaps that dragon...

PS- I also picked up this guy while at the game store Sunday. (I couldn't resist)
