View Full Version : Sooo much stuff to paint.

25-02-2007, 17:25
So anywho as you may have guessed from the title I have far too much unpainted stuff and this an atempt to fix this.

My plan is to get an army painted for each system I play finished within a year. The first things on the list are below.

Warhammer, im going to try and get a 2K wood elf army done for the end of april.

40K Im still not sure what army im going to do next and get painted.

Warmaster, there is a tomb kings army sitting on the shelf beside me waiting to get done.

Epic, I have a space marines army and an eldar one needing painted.

Necromunda, Im playing in Catferret's one so I should try and get the gang done, currently I have painted 4 models in it.

Mordhiem, Ive got me a war band sitting there needing painting.

Lord of the Rings, I have rohan and Uraki armys waiting.

Gothic, I need to find and assemble my fleet before I can even think about painting it.

And finally Warmachine(see I don't just play GW games). They are all painted, hmm weird need to buy more.

Im going to start with wood elves as I have some sort of deadline for thoughs and I will put up pics soon. Hopefully in an hour or so if my computer behaves.

25-02-2007, 17:34
That just sounds wrong!

25-02-2007, 17:38
You know what i mean, what you taking to the G.T?

25-02-2007, 17:47
A unit of glade guard before spraying.


The Dryads before spraying.


And the drayads after spraying.


Oh and a pic of merry from my Rohan army.


25-02-2007, 17:50
Ooooh piccies. Did you hurt your knees before or after spraying?

25-02-2007, 18:15
AARGH! Attack of the 50ft pics! Crop them photos on photo editor Weregerbil!

Anyway, we shall see how much of that stuff you actually get done! :p

How long before you change your mind on doing Wood Elves btw?

25-02-2007, 18:21
Which GT? I hurt my knees while doing them and Im going to do them all.

25-02-2007, 18:26
I thought the pics were a perfect size. :-P

Get a bigger monitor Catferret! XD

25-02-2007, 18:29
It's a 17" monitor! Still brought up scroll bars!

25-02-2007, 18:53
17"? Tiny.

25-02-2007, 19:41
Well it would be a with a 21" screen. Grr

The 40k Gt

25-02-2007, 21:01

25-02-2007, 22:19
Get your Eldar done for the GT! You bought the army deal didn't you?!

How far did you get? One Wraithlord part painted... Tsk tsk tsk... :p

26-02-2007, 09:53

26-02-2007, 18:09

26-02-2007, 18:34

you could simply have told us that you needed to paint the contents of most local stores :D


26-02-2007, 20:36
Naaah, just not ENOUGH armies. Add a couple more and we'll start really considering you :D
;) ;) ;)

27-02-2007, 21:08
I have more than the local store. I went in last week to pick up some charcters for my wood elves and they had none, had to get them mail ordered which made me inadvertantly get a dragon as well.

I played a game with my wood elves tonight and won! So tommorow night is the ork's turn the Wikki Wikki Wagggggh fights once more.

28-02-2007, 22:38
Wikki Wikki Waaagh. How'd the game against Bruntonio go?

01-03-2007, 18:40
Well as Konrad mentioned I managed to get a couple of games this week. 1 with mu Wood Elves which I won Woo, and 1 with my Wikki Wikki Waaagh!(Orks) which I lost Boo. It was all going fine till we started the started the game as well.

on the painting front, well not much has happened as I have been out playing games. But Saturday is painting day as my confilc partner still has his dwarves to finish grrrrrrrrr.

01-03-2007, 18:56
Did you expect Dave to actually have anything painted in a decent time

01-03-2007, 19:46
I have more than the local store. I went in last week to pick up some charcters for my wood elves and they had none, had to get them mail ordered which made me inadvertantly get a dragon as well.

Those pesky dragons... they always sneak unseen in ships' holds, small packets, mail vans... :D

01-03-2007, 22:34
@ Konrad if he stoped playing with them fish guts and sheep.

@ RAM_mit don't forget jaffa cake boxes.

Oh and I have started to paint my Dryads, the base coat and the inking have been done, so may get pics done on Sat.

02-03-2007, 18:09
I'm surprised the dragon's are willing to hide in jaffa cakes boxes in case they get eaten by accident. :D

02-03-2007, 18:11
I will have pics up tommorow.

02-03-2007, 18:49
Very well, we'll await them.


03-03-2007, 20:19
Right folks I promised pics today so here you are.

First up one of my warmachine jacks, the Charger.
Fear his hammer.

Now we have another jack, the Iron Clad.
Fear his bigger hammer!

Now my Warcaster.
He has no hammer.

04-03-2007, 00:02
No hammer? Well he won't last long in the zombie apocalypse! (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68704)

Nice work on them WG! Real tempted to buy me a coupla Jacks and start playing warmachine but the sheer broken-ness of the game concerns me.

More pics damnit! :D

05-03-2007, 11:07
Right folks more pics.

First off my gang leader

A juve

Fear the shotgun.
or not.

And last

05-03-2007, 22:24
Some really bad lighting there

05-03-2007, 22:56
Yep and that was at 4ish on a Sat afternoon. On another note I have now found out I need to have a 2250pt Warhammer army painted by the 28th of April. So I got started the night and finished a dryad.

05-03-2007, 22:57
Haha, better speed up then!

06-03-2007, 13:46
Is this just a log of you lot chatting lol, you might as well do it in the living room!!

Models are all looking good WG.
And yes we do only get daylight at weekends here in Edinburgh.

06-03-2007, 15:57
Well we gotta keep the log active if he is only going to be posting pics at the weekend! That and we only see him at weekends anyway.

07-03-2007, 15:13
Fair enough. Wish more people would keep my log going lol.

07-03-2007, 20:44
Well folks II have not been painting, but I did get more work done on cleaning up my dragon. And I played another game tonight against some brets and won again. Which is nice. Will have updates again at weekend.

09-03-2007, 17:14
Hey folks I have done some painting now, some more dryads are done, so its pic time over the weekend.

11-03-2007, 21:17
Well I know I said that pics would be forthcoming this weekend, but due to my camara sucking and the weather being terrible the pics I took were just nasty so got deleted.

i have been painting though, some more uruki, more ogres and Im building my last war walker.

11-03-2007, 21:25
You finally got around to building that? My god, it's a miracle! :D

We shall be waiting for next week's update then.

13-03-2007, 18:44
I am playing games as well as sitting arounding building and painting, it's not as though I don't have a life! Oh wait a sec.

03-04-2007, 23:48
Right folks, sorry for the lack of updates for my fans(all 1 of you). I have been busy doing club stuff and working out armys and playing. But to show I have been painting here you go.

Here is pics of the standard bearers for my Ogre Ironguts and Bulls.

A pic of the Iron gut Standard bearer close up.


Bull standard.


Side on


And now something I did to see how metalics work over larger areas e.g. not just as detail.


I have mixed feelings about the gold. Any thoughts?

Oh and I have a 2250pt HE army to paint by the 28th. It seemed like a good idea at the time so I will be busy doing that. Pics will be up when I get hold of a camara again.

Grrr won't let me put up more than 4 pics.

03-04-2007, 23:54
You know, that bling marine actually looks quite good. i'm not a fan of lots of gold but there is a lot of warmth to that model.

Nice work. :D

Oh, and knowing your love of tank brushes, those High Elves will be done by Thursday! lol

05-04-2007, 19:28
I have started on my High Elves I have 4 sparayed black sitting there drying so I can get started.

06-04-2007, 00:14
You see, 4 doesn't sound like a lot but knowing Weregerbil, his list uses a lot of Seer Mages and Bolt Throwers...

06-04-2007, 11:24
that bling marine

What bling marine? I can't see it anyway just some ogres:confused:

06-04-2007, 12:15
What bling marine? I can't see it anyway just some ogres:confused:

The *******' gold marine just a little bit up this page! No cake for you! :D

06-04-2007, 12:51
Ah for some reason it has now appeared, looks good, will have to see it in person to judge it properly tho. I think the 'sons of sparta' a few years back showed how gold could be done well on power armour.

@Catferret: It's me that gives out cake not you, I can have cake whenever I want:evilgrin:

06-04-2007, 12:54
@Catferret: It's me that gives out cake not you, I can have cake whenever I want:evilgrin:

Yet you never share. For shame! Well you better get me some for my birthday or I'll cry! :cries: lol

06-04-2007, 12:57
Keep griping about not getting cake and you won't get any, When's your birthday?

It looks like I've 'caked up' someone elses thread, sorry weregerbil.

06-04-2007, 12:59
Captain Senioris: Cake Spammer! lol :D

07-04-2007, 09:24
If he wants to stop spamming up our logs with cake he should give us all cake so we shut up.

07-04-2007, 15:59
Stop talking about cake!

I have been painting more, I did an Alpha Legion marine to see how it would turn I might have pics up soon.

08-04-2007, 01:51
I have seen the Alpha Legion guy. It looks really ******* cool!

08-04-2007, 22:43
Yeah my Lightnings for Aeronautica showed up woo!

09-04-2007, 18:30
bring on the Alpha Legion marine

10-04-2007, 23:42
Need the camera again then. I still have the SD card for it by the way. Oh and its Alpha Legion guys now.

21-04-2007, 21:31
Right so it turns out I am crazy, im going to try and paint a 2250pt Skaven army by the 28th, so far ive done 20 clan rats, a ratling gun and a warlock eep!

Any suggestions for painting skaven quickly?

21-04-2007, 21:42
Buy them ready painted on Ebay? Um, draught in paint-minions. Other than that, no idea.

22-04-2007, 09:14
today, crack open your paints, your spray etc, and batch paint ALL DAY for the life in you! This is the one time I will say - ''DRYBRUSH''! god that hurt... :p


22-04-2007, 10:20
look into dipping, paint base colors on a lot, dip them, let them dry overnight, then if time allows, then do fine detail.

22-04-2007, 12:19
Well buying off e-bay is not an option as they won't arrive on time. I am going to try to just paint as much as possible today.

22-04-2007, 12:30
Ebay can work if you refine the search and clear with the seller that you need it within 24hrs! I've found that they do deliver especially the ebay stores on the 'buy right now' policy.

22-04-2007, 14:01
Are you using your old technique of the Tank Brush?

09-05-2007, 21:50
Right well first off sorry for the lack of updates but if been busy/lazy. The Skaven army didn't happen as my flatmate forgot to pick them up for me so I got my High Elves done instead see below.


And the Sword Masters


I got round to doing some Alpha Legion as well have a look.



Thats all the pics for now untill I can get hold of a decent camara again. I am going to another WFB tourament in June so I am going to try and get the Skaven painted up for that.

Will keep you lot posted.

09-05-2007, 23:44
You know you are never gonna get round to doing the rest of the Alpha Legion. You will have another of your crazy ideas and forget all about the Chaos Marines...

It's a shame really because that Alpha guy looks pretty cool...

10-05-2007, 11:18
OH do i hate your High Elves mister. Looking good tho. Alpha Legion are looking spiffy, i hope you get round to finishing them

10-05-2007, 11:31
Just for clarity, Konrad hates Weregerbil's HE Army. Not his painting.

10-05-2007, 17:51
Its not my fault that my "themed" HE army killed him horriblely. I might add I did more damage to my army because of miscasts thatn he did. Oops.

14-07-2007, 12:30
Right since ive not post on this in a while I though I should. I have managed to paint a couple more marines(see one below)


And a dryad for the TOP thang.

Since the GT is coming up(40K) its that time of year when I drive folk mad by asking them what army I should take. Any thoughts folk?(not Guard, Orks or Tau.)

14-07-2007, 12:39
Uuh what about the Nidzilla list?

14-07-2007, 13:21
Deathwing! ;)

14-07-2007, 20:29
Take some sort of broken Blood Angels army, seems to be in fashion atm.

18-09-2007, 19:19
I went with Nids in the end and have so far got a fex, a lictor 3 ravaners and 10 gaunts painted and based. The hive tyrant is a converted and stuff.

Ive also been painting my stuff for the tale of fantasy painters, got the first 2 months done and working on the 3rd month at the moment(will put pics up when I can grab a decent camara).

Thats about all ive been up.

Palatine Katinka
18-09-2007, 22:37
How many more troops (gaunts/stealers etc.) do you have to do? You've got just under a month to get them done sooo, a few weeks working on the Tyrant then speed through the little guys in the last week? Of course, there's still time for you to surprise us all, as you did last year, and switch army on the 6th of October. ;)

18-09-2007, 22:56
What me switch armies a week before the GT? Well probly not but I do need to start testing this army now that it's all assembled.

wildly firing
18-09-2007, 23:24
i'll help test it! ain't shot me any bugs for a while........

19-09-2007, 22:52
I'm always up for a fight. Never really fought Nidzilla.

20-09-2007, 23:07
Cheers for the offers guys I will let you know when I can play. Got games day this weekend (why did I offer to run a table there? Silly Dave) followed by freshers week, so a nice 40 hour day followed by getting into uni for 9 on Monday arggh. Oh and Wildly tell Ali soon for beer related shenanagins.

20-09-2007, 23:17
Woo! Beer related shenanigans! I'm down for some of that action. If I don't see you at cinema I'll see you at GW Saturday.

*Obligatory on-topic post* Where's pics of the nids then?

30-09-2007, 01:15
So I now have some pics to post of my nid army which now has less than 2 weeks to get finished eek!

Mr Lictor



and now the fex



Any thoughts?

30-09-2007, 09:16
You are a crazy suka for leaving things to late to paint. But looking good.

02-10-2007, 10:36
I guess Dave works well under pressure.

29-11-2007, 04:55
Where here is some pics of finished nid army.




let me know what u all think.

29-11-2007, 20:26
Damn your speed painting skills.

30-11-2007, 11:13
such wonderful praise there.
