The wood for the trees

I recently bought four sets of the GW tree sets figuring even though I don't play much (or at all) they are pretty much a hobby investment y'know? Like cuff links for a guy or a little black dress for a girl, you are safe in the knowledge they're there to call on in an emergency.

So over the last couple of weeks I've been assembling and I'm currently in the removal of mould lines, only four more trees to go before I can start greenstuffing the cracks. I've found this kit does not fit together amazingly well. Some really large gaps are visible.

Current WiP

I have made a beginning on the first of the trees, starting with a green Basecoat, followed by a cream drybrush and a wash of secret weapon concrete wash. More specific colours will be in the next post.

The base is still to be finished but I'm not doing much more to the tree, it's gaming standard I'm aiming for.

Empire warrior priest WiP2

Two days and two blog entries, get in!

After about six months where the painting mojo left me I'm most definitely back on the horse. So tonight I continued with the Empire warrior priest, working initially to put down the basecoat for the scrolls. Then in a moment of madness I decided to make his trousers stripy. So I laid down the first freehand for that, which still needs to be tidied up. I also managed to get a better photo, so a good hobby hour or so overall.

Poor fella is still missing a hand though.

#WiP Wednesday No.1

So here it is, my first post in anger. I'm not going to start with anything taxing just the first in something I hope to do every Wednesday, post a work in progress. Of course the idea is stolen shamelessly from twitter.

 

So to start......an empire warrior priest

The skin on the face is about the only thing finished so far.

Amazing models (But life size)

While paying a visit to Athlone Castle I came across a couple of these models. Made from metal and painted really well. I just wanted to share.
Historical models done right!
