Well i was going to pick up where i left off on my log but it has vanished and i have searched for it for a hour so i am just going to start a new one. I will start off by posting all the stuff that i had in my last one i suppose.

Corsair unit one.

Crossbow unit #1



Double hand weapon hero on foot.

So far the painted corsairs i have decided to rip there arms off for better ranking and the bases are all going to get woodland scenic snow flock when i get in the mood.

And my chariot WIP and first black guard. They both seem to need something that i am not sure how to give them what they need.




All of these pictures are taken with my phone, but it really doesn't make them look any worse since i am pretty terrible with my work-hands and whatnot.

Need better pics man! Good looking black guard conversion though. (That is a conversion right? I dont know anything about D.E.'s). If you want to add more to him you could green stuff him a cloak maybe.

Looks nice! What colors are used in the dark elf corsairs scales on the cloaks?

For something to add to your chariot, maybe some skulls in the space between the cold ones and the other part ( don't know what to call it). Or a larger rock. Or maybe even a squished body!

Anyway, looking amazing! Keep the updates coming.

Yea i know im going to need to GS something on him but i am real hesitant to since my skills are far far below average.

i had a decent log with nice WIP at one point but oh well. Here are more pics of my army they have stayed in there WIP stage for a good 6 months now.

and my Cold one knights. I need another and they are a pain to find cheap sadly.

WIP cold one scheme. not sure if i like it or how to make it tie together and keep a nice white scae on them.

The corsair cloaks were a base of bleached bone, wash of badab, bleached bone again. and i think a little deneb stone for highlights.

Anyways i am hesitant to really start painting again but have almost finished a group of warriors, but for some reason did not take a picture so here are more random un painted things.

My black guard. i am having trouble figuring out a 2nd arm option, all the ones i have have no hands.

Learning the rules to a new army and 40k in general takes time.

Well i have been forcing myself to finish my warriors and am almost finished! This pleases me a great deal since i am only making them to sac off with a dagger i hated spending so much time painting them and of course i am a sub-par painter so they look like crap despite my many hours. ANyways i still need to add snow 'i am stranded and cannot go get it yet' and to finish attaching shields. I am not happy with the color of the dragons but do not know a good color to make them, possible change it to a bone looking color?
Anyways next up to bat is the dark riders, followed by the black guard and then the cold ones.

And now i test to see if i have this thumbnail thing down pat.

Ok that seems to look right, not in the order i wanted them but whatever was enough of a issue to do since it would not let me upload from my pc.
