Hello and welcome to my new project log, hopefully this one will motivate me to paint and will be updated more than once a millennia.

All I ask of you is to be kind and give me a bit of encouragement. So whats on the agenda. Thinking about which Fantasy Army to finish. Instead of starting yet another army, I decided to get my Ogres done. Some of you may remember me trying to paint them in a week, well that failed. My enthusiasm for this army was boosted by this nice parcel I got in the post this Morning.

For those who don't remember, this is the colour scheme *cue crap pic*

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a330/cookiescrumble/Ogre%20Kingdoms/DSCF0013.jpg

So the plan is to have these done by Carnage Poole 03, which is some time in June. I'm sure Lav won't let me use the Rhinoxs though.

The planned army list is attached, I've played a grand total of two games with the list and have two victories under my belt.

With the Easter Holidays approaching i.e after today I hope to get alot done. I'm also hoping to get alot of games especially of Fantasy as I really want to get back into the game. This is boosted by the fantastic weekend I had at Carnage North with my Tombkings.

I also want to get my Aeronautica fleet painted which currently stands at:

6 Fighta Bommerz with Grot Bombs

6 Fightaz.

Heres a pic:

and a scale comparison between a epic Grot Bomb and a GW Standard brush, just so you can see how small they really are:

Onto 40k side of things. This will mainly mean getting my traitor guard painted. The deadline for these is the GT, which is later this year. I have most of the stuff for the army, having enough FW pieces to make 70ish guardsmen. Also have the great new Ogryn Beserker squad on their way and also picked these up for friendly games:

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a330/cookiescrumble/Traitor%20Guard/DSCF0040.jpg

These will be painted generically, so I can also field them in my standard guard army.

Heres a WIP pic of a chimera count as. This need a second Heavy Bolter and a back door:

Heres some pics of random doods:

First Infantry squad with Autocannon and Grenade Launcher:

Armoured fist squad, who will have a Flamer and a Heavy Bolter:

Also for 40k, there is some more Necrons planned as that was also a project log that failed.

That's it Paul, start ANOTHER thread! :p

I'd love to see those Ogres finished - give me a shout if you fancy a game over the holiday. We both have a score to settle now. ;)

The Leman Chimeradator is very nice, I think that conversion works very well. Have you posted pics of it before?

Sure thing, I am free most of the next two weeks. Would love to try out my Rhinox Riders. :evilgrin:

Yep, on the tread head thread. I have done more work since this pic was taken.

Thats just the start of my un-opened FW pile. Also have my two Lightnings that need finishing, I bought these at Gamesday 2003 :rolleyes: .

Then there is the two Space Wolf Rhinos with FW doors and Extra Armour kits, plus a Termie conversion kit.

For my nids I still have a Trygon and a Malanthrope to build and paint.

Lastly there is enough FW goodies for 70 Traitor Guardsmen and an Ogryn Beserker squad on it's way.

This is an army I have just wanted to do as the forgeworld kits are a bit nice. They aren't a replacement for anything.

w00t an update!!!

Due to a combination of me and being lazy I haven't got much done.

Made a few of my Aeronautica planes and been playing around with my brothers camera. I think you'll notice an improvement in picture quality.

Anyway heres some better pics of the Irongut:

one thing that bothers me about that ogre. It's his mouth. right now, it looks kinda messy, as there is no shadowing between his teeth and the flesh of his lower lip. Can you put a fine line of black between that lower lip and them teeth. Just for me?

Another update from Ye.

I have got almost no modelling done, well there is a reason for this. I have been making and painting terrain for a new gaming club that myself and a few others are planning to set up.

Heres some pics of what I've been up to:

Painting some terrain whilst taking a photo with my 1337 Ninja skills!

I actually did something and still no interest :cries: . (Some comments would be nice.)

Anyway heres some more terrain, this time in the form of a runined residential block. The great thing about this is it has cost me nothing, one advantage of working in a supermarket is a good resource of free foamboard.

Anyway heres some pics:

Another update and more terrain. I haven't got any models assembled or painted in the last 2 weeks, but it is for a good cause.

First of all some random destroyed hovel thingy, made from some off cuts of foamboard. Never throw anything away!

Heres a couple of pics, the random Chaos marine makes another appearance as a scale.

and some rock formations, made from Bark, the sort that is used for ground covering. Again this was free as the Bark was donated, you know who you are! :D

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a330/cookiescrumble/Terrain/DSCF0010.jpg

A few of these will be made for the desert board, a few more will be made for the Jungle/Forest boards.

I don't, I work at ASDA so get the old adverts which happen to be printed on 5mm foamboard and comes in 39 inch squares. :D :cool:

As for where to get it, I have seen it in Model railway shops, or I guess an online store would sell it. If all else fails try ebay.

Also picked up a Moss Decor ball, to make some more trees.

and a Warmachine army, no idea at all about this. Don't even know how much they are worth, I bought them off a mate so trust they haven't ripped me off.

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a330/cookiescrumble/DSCF0038.jpg

Once the club is up and running, I will be making a start on my GT army. The planned army is a Vostroyan one. The traitor guard will wait to the summer, when IA5 is released.

Not much done, been revising for a Maths exam (which I probably failed.)

Anyway, some more scenery, this time an Imperial fuel tank for the Industrial board. Needs tidying up and some detailing.

An update for Ye'.

Well nothing has been done for ages, at least all my coursework is out of the way now. Just a few exams to worry about.

Whilst clearing through my room I found all of my traitor guard packs. So I thought of building a few and to start painting them.

Here is a WIP shot of a Rough Rider.

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a330/cookiescrumble/Traitor%20Guard/P5100285.jpg

I'm planning to bend the left arm so that it lies closer to the torso. The right arm will have a hunting lance converted from a Lizardmen spear. The left hand will also be holding a chain which will run to a piece of plastic rod in the steeds mouth. This will also be chained around the head (so it doesn't fall out :rolleyes: .)

Some opinions on this would be great.

Some more pictures what I have been up to lately.

This time some Necromunda gangers, a Cadian force to use as Enforcers.

This was planned during the Medusa V campaign. There was a plan of a campaign in the slums around one of the larger settlements. There was word of this being done again so I decided to have a go at converting the gang. The group of Military Police Officers were sent into the slums, because of reports of a rising cult, that is part of the WIP background aswell.

Here are some pics of some WIP gangers:

Thought I would finally post an update, just to prove that I still exist.

Been real busy lately, with both exams and finishing bits and pieces for the club. But that will be over soon, just two more weeks of exams to go.

First of all, I got a new Cat!!! Her name is Saffy and she is about a year old so is really playful. I have already had to fight with her over models, as she runs off with them.

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a330/cookiescrumble/Picture.jpg

I've also made a start on a Dwarf Army, which will hopefully be done in time for Carnage Poole 03. Only painted one slayer so far:

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a330/cookiescrumble/IMGP0663.jpg

Apart from that, nothing major. Started building my Warhammer building set which will be for when I play games at home, I'll get some pics of that tomorrow. Also bought a Warmaster empire army which is on my summer to do list. I have also considered re-painting my deathguard, as looking at them they look crap, I also plan to strip my Witch-Hunters and repaint them adding some new units. Got some Arbites planned.

cookiescrumble
03-06-2007, 18:57
Another update. Not really done much, just some stuff to keep my mind off my exams. My last exam is on Friday so I hope to get more done after this.

Started building my Menoth force, really love these models.

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a330/cookiescrumble/IMGP0691.jpg

Also got this Ltd ed Ogre from my brother, no idea why he had it. He will replace my Hunter, who is rubbish.

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a330/cookiescrumble/IMGP0692.jpg

Also got these saucy little numbers for my Deathguard, these will become the centre pieces of my army when I repaint it. I am actually really fond of the colour scheme, this is the colour I had in mind when I repaint the army. These were coverted by Lavfluris, I had to repair the dead guy on the top as my cat pounced on it and knocked it off the table. Luckily that is the only part that broke. I also added the marine helmet, which will be a Dark Angels helm.

Thought is was about time I updated this damn log.

Not really done much over the last couple of weeks. Finished my first year at Uni so have alot of time off at the moment. I have painted a few models, painted one model from my Human Bloodbowl team, my Orc for Warhammer quest. I have also started painting my Aernautica fleet, as these are wanted for display at my local GW store. I took some pictures earlier, but don't need to tell you about the weather so the pics turned out really dark. :rolleyes: .

Also mostly assembled my Warmachine army and had my first game the other day. Never realised how dirty my army was, never knew what it could do, just bought the lot as an army. Found the game really good, just need to get my army painted now.

I've also got my first commission project, which I'm really happy about. I will soon have a 1500pt Tau army to build and paint in the standard brown scheme. I'll post pics of them as I work on them. Hopefully there will be more projects to come over the summer.

Also got several more armies to do, loads of different games to learn.

Heres a list:

Bloodbowl
- Humans, just need to paint
- Orcs, need to convert and paint

Battlefleet Gothic
- 2500pt Cruiser Heavy Chaos fleet, on order

Epic
- Start of Imperial Guard army, on order

Warmaster
- 1500pt Undead army, just needs to be painted
- 2500pt Empire Army, needs to be assembled and painted

Mordheim
- Marienburger Warband, needs undercoating and painting.

Necromunda
- Redemptionist gang, needs assembling and painting
- Enforcer gang, needs to be converted and painted.
- Goliaths, needs to be stripped and repainted

Warmachine
- 500pt Menoth Force

and enough waffle and some pics.

My orc quest character

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a330/cookiescrumble/IMGP0723.jpg

the first couple of the converted enforcers.

So that should be enough for me to be getting on with. Hopefully updates will be more frequent so there might be a bit more interest in my log.

I also have my GT army to do, which at the moment, is either my Traitor Guard or Witch Hunters.

Well, it's been a while....

Anyway, after a discussion with McMullet earlier today, thought it was about time I started to get stuff done. Not done anything really in the last couple of months as everything else seemed to get in the way and also spent some time out to work on my model railway.

Thought the best place to start would be the two tournies I have coming up in March, the 40k GT final and Carnage North 2008 where I will be playing Fantasy. For both of these I will be building and painting Ork/Orc armies. I already have most of the stuff for these armies, and will wait for the new Ork releases before I decide on a final list.

The theme for the Fantasy army will be a Orc tribe led by a Black Orc Warboss and a unit of Black Orcs, with a small night Goblin tribe. Basically an excuse for a squig herd...

The 40k army will be continuing with my DethSkullz.

Heres a few pics to start my revival with:

A few bits for my Apocolypse army :

Well, it's been a while but i'm back. With the Carnage Tournament only 8 weeks(ish) away I thought it was about time I started on my army. Decided on a Khorne Chaos Army, all made up of Mortal units. The army is mostly still to be assembled and I've painted a few models which I have taken (crap) pictures of.

Once the army is painted and ready for the tournament then I'm planning to do some brass banding around the edge of the knights armour to break up the large areas of redness.

McMullet
31-01-2008, 17:21
The Warriors look great Paul. The balance of red and metal on the mini is perfect and they contrast very well with the green on the bases.

The Knight looks OK but really needs more shading - like you say that is a big area of red. A bit of black (or brown) lining between the armour plates would help a lot.

Good luck getting the army done in time!
