well the gaunlet has been thrown down by 2 other members of my local group, Dave Vos and Mr Ralf, i will pick up the challange and paint my 4000 point High Elf army, the annoying thing is this is the second high elf army i have painted, when Warmaster first came out i did 2000 points of nicely painted high elves but we stoped playing soon after so i got rid. We have now been shown the light and find Warmaster the most fun games we play. My painting style is quick having painted 2000 points of Chaos Demons in just under 4 weeks for another of our group but i'll let you judge if quick is good enough, pictures to follow once i have got some done.

Hi Marky "Tank factory of the Urals" Parky.
Apologies if this is slightly off topic:
This guy is amazing - he paints more than our entire group put together. He is right about Warmaster though - we all tried it when it first came out and made the big mistake of playing v small battles with no terrain. This meant that luck (in the form of command rolls) and heavy cavalry (in the form of chaos knights) spoiled our games and put us all off the system. About 2 years ago me and one more member of the group (Dr Jon aka Dr Lovely) tried it again with bigger forces and more terrain. Our group has never looked back! Between us we now have every army represented (half of them are even painted) and we regularly play between 3K and 6K a side games between the 6 of us. I suspect Warmaster Ancients is in our tea leaves for the future too.

Back on topic: I have now completely finished 6 regiments of halberdiers and 6 regiments of crossbowmen and will post piccys soon if MrMarkRelf takes some photos and sends to the right e mail address.

i will try and send to the correct e-mail address this time, sorry got confused I think I used the one that I sent those ones of you and the hamsters to....

I am currently spending tonight decorating a pirate ship cake for my son's 5th Birthday, not quite 10mm and the icing pens do not quite have the flow of Vallejo paints.  Do you think anyone will notice if I resort to acrylics ?

Vos you are showing me up, I only have 2 units of spearmen half painted, hey ho, I will need to step up-to the mark next week.

The quality of your painting Mark - you might get better results? :)

No, seriously, I'm not sure that the Empire infantry count as I've been painting them since before xmas!
I wasn't having a dig - it's my works e mail filter that is the problem. If you could send them to was10@live.co.uk

Cheers

Vos

Lots of good stuff so far, I'll single out Angor's bases for my first ever use of this smiley:  :o . And that eagle recipe is about to get used on my 28mm one! Let's see if it works out. And could there be competition for Azrael! That'll be both inspiring and terrifying in equal measure.

In such company I'm a bit ashamed of my slack speed. I'm almost certainly failing at my speed challenge, mainly because I'm spending my evenings marking rather than painting. But, here, later than planned, is the second unit of hounds:



To make up for it here's a sneak peek at my other project:



It's my first attempt at sculpting in 10mm and I've decided that patience is the key if you're as bad as I am so I'm sculpting tiny bits at a time rather than risking messing stuff up. It's meant to be Grimgor and is part of my attempt to get my Storm of Chaos campaign written up and underway. As you can probably tell I've been hugely inspired by Vincent's fabulous work. I wouldn't have started yet but I've just picked up these beauties:



I have to say that they're nicer than I expected and it means that I've now got a new general for my chaos army (so this is just about on topic).

Where on earth did you manage to get those? I'm sure I've been keeping tabs on ebay for, well at least four or five months now to look out for these...

They came from a chap on TWF. I put a wanted ad on there with a hefty cash reward attached.

I must admit that getting these figures has been very good news. Partly because I wanted them and partly because I was wasting time on ebay hunting for them (I think I checked a couple of times most days). Having failed with many wanted ads in the past this time I went with a specified 'bounty' for anyone who could help me - with no idea what the ebayable value might be I went for a sum that I thought might be attractive enough to get people to dig through their collections. I'd now love to see some on ebay to see how much they'd fetch, until then I'll never know if I went overboard or not...

About 6 mont ago I've seen a complete, un-opened set on ebay. The final price excluding S&H was about $60  :o

Wish I'd seen that, I'd pay maybe 50 for a set (that's just under $80 at the moment). Well, so long as I can hide it from the wife anyway...
