Pics or it hasn't happened.
Oh, it's happened, alright. And I'll get you pics - sexy pics of my nekkid ghouls cavorting through the decrepit wreck of a cemetery... I can sense you and Dave drooling.

There it is, the details!  I have fully painted my 2 orc warriors and have them back on their plastic bases. It felt sooooo good to finish them but im sure i will need to paint 4 more in the future!  The 10mm details are such a pain.

Do you just pick a color and go all through your army or stick to a unit type or paint a unit seperately. I always miss things with a color and have to go back, then get hung up picking out what i missed. It took me a week to paint the last bits on those greenskins. :/

Im starting to love how adepticon is the end of winter and basically the end of painting mini's.  Painting is fun but exhausting. Ha

Update time! I'm wrapping up the zombies - they just need a black wash on the tombstones and a few touchups.


Next up are characters, black knights (still no clue how I'm going to paint them) and basing. I'm still a bit ahead of schedule, but the deadline is coming up fast. We're slated to get over a foot of snow on Wednesday though, so I might luck out and get an extra day of painting in.

They're calling for up to 16 inches, so I should have a good painting day!

Yeah, we didn't get as much as anticipated, and I didn't do as much as I should have, but as of last night, everything is painted to a reasonable standard. I can do some touchups, but I think I'm at a good stopping point. I'll start the basing this weekend.

After an entire day of backbreaking tedium, I've finished applying the basing to 2240 points of Warmaster Vampire Counts:



They're playable at this point, but I want to get the bases fully painted before Adepticon - one week remaining!

Haha, sorry, no - I've got one of my own to paint!

Update: Yesterday, we had yet another snow day, so I got to work. Then my 80 pound dog decided he was going to do a flying leap directly into the tray holding my Warmaster minis, and they went flying everywhere. Nothing was broken, but I do have some chipping that I need to fix now. Damn dog...

I was able to get the bases magnetized and put a base color down on them.



Just have the aforementioned touchups and highlighting and flocking of the bases to go.
