Hey guys! So I finally start a Sci-Fi log too because I hope that some day, I'll have enough time to paint all the 40k stuff I have lying around. First off, this one is going to get updated much more randomly than my Fantasy Log, mainly because of the following reasons:
If anyone of you knows my Fantasy log, you'll know that I do quite a lot of commission work. Interestingly, I haven't been offered to do ANY sci-fi miniatures as commissions, it's always WHFB, Warmaster and LotR so presumably, all miniatures you'll see in here will be for personal use and joy which means that I have no set deadlines, no pressure at painting them at all (this might be one of the reasons why I still haven't painted them. ).
How wrong you are, Sigur of the past. Of course you will paint commissioned sci-fi minis! Loads of them!
Howdy, this is Sigur from the future (January 13,2011). As time goes on, thing change and so this log is becoming bigger and bigger each day that passes by. Due to the scope of this project log, I figured it would be a good idea to have an index so people wouldn't have to scan through all of these almost 70 pages to find the things they're interested in especially. Even though I'm of course happy about everyone who takes the time and browses though all of this.

So what do I have to paint? I'll make up a little list just what comes to mind:
.) Battle Barge Space Marine (Apothecarius)
.) a handful of Sisters of Battle
- an Exorcist, (about 40% painted)
- Squad of SoB (primed)
- Death Cult Assassins (primed)
- Eversor (50% painted)
- Callidus (primed)
- Stormtroopers (primed)
- maybe three or four single miniatures (in various stated of WIPness)
...and maybe I should repaint the whole army.
.) a Valhallan army I'm not yet too sure what to do with (artillery regiment? mechanized? vanilla IG?)
- about 1700pts plus Baneblade and quite a lot of unassembled tanks, all only primed
.) Orks army (consisting of RT-era and 2nd edition Orks miniatures)
- probably about 1500pts, mainly unassembled
So you see I have more or less HUGE PILES to paint. I'm sure that I won't get all this painted within the lifetime of this thread. As I said earlier, this will get updated occationally with random stuff.
Anyway, I'm currently working on a Space Marine Apothecary for the Battle Barge project. I haven 't painted a Space Marine miniature in a decade and it's quite a lot of fun.
....aaand I just noticed that the battery of my digicam is empty so you only get a little older pictures:
and his base:
Newer pictures will follow tomorrow. I hope we all will enjoy this log.
