Work in progress, hopefully moving towards the look of a very worn yet still functioning artillery barrel, just waiting on a few pigments so I can add scorch marks.

I saw your video, love the miniatures. I was getting distracted by the reflection on the mirror finish of the rotating table. If the surface of the table was covered with a black circle, it would bring the focus back to the miniatures.
I'm using real slate (taken from the garden :D ) all minis stood on any slate are drilled and pinned using a standard pin vice and paperclips.

Thanks for the video tip, ill try it on my next one!

Incredible as always. I have a couple brothers who think I paint really well but I tell them I am still a beginner. They don't believe me until I show them your stuff. Your painting is an inspiration and the speed of your progress just makes it all the more impressive. Thanks for posting on this forum.

Hi everyone, sorry for the lack of updates, unfortunately have met with a few disasters outside the hobby this month (some toad burgled my house), so free time has been practically zero :evil:

But have just pieced together my September commitment just in time, the Recon Squad 'Olodar's Shadows' and will have an update on the medusa very shortly. Plenty of free time over September so I plan to blast through all the unfinished commitments so far :D

Your models look great Tinker, many thanks for the comment, really helping motivate to get these minis finished.

A terrible experience, but the guys been caught and we've see some of our belongings returned :)


Well back in the saddle and starting to make a little progress,
Continuing to batter and weather the medusa

The Recon unit, camouflage pattern is bugging me a little, might be a little large... partly me being lazy, might be able to hide it slightly by mucking up the cloaks and adding some foliage to the minis, or I might just repaint it...

Just received the bases for the assault unit so I can finish assembling those now :D

Looking great. Love the weathering on the medusa. Camo pattern on the recon marine is also good IMHO. Very different but suits the red armour.

Keep up the good work!

A beautifully done Army. I love the depth and age depicted in that Medusa. Wow.

I look forward to seeing the rest of that recon squad.

I'm sorry to hear about the burglary. We had a break in last year, I know how that feels.
