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.

Catferret
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?

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

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

Get a bigger monitor Catferret! XD

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

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

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

The 40k Gt

Weregerbil
25-02-2007, 21:01

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

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

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

Weregerbil
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.

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

Weregerbil
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.

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

RAM_mit
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

Weregerbil
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.

Catferret
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

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

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

Right folks I promised pics today so here you are.

First up one of my warmachine jacks, the Charger.
http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/PICT0226.jpg
Fear his hammer.

Now we have another jack, the Iron Clad.
http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/PICT0227.jpg
Fear his bigger hammer!

Now my Warcaster.
http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/PICT0228.jpg
He has no hammer.

Catferret
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

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

First off my gang leader
http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/PICT0231.jpg

Some really bad lighting there

Weregerbil
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.

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

KayvaanShrike
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.

Catferret
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.

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

Weregerbil
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.

Weregerbil
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.

Weregerbil
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.

Catferret
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.

Weregerbil
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.

Weregerbil
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.

http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/Ogre4.jpg

Bull standard.

http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/Ogre1.jpg

Side on

http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/Ogre2.jpg

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

http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/Bling1.jpg

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.

Catferret
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

Weregerbil
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.

Catferret
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...

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

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

Catferret
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

CaptainSenioris
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:

Catferret
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

CaptainSenioris
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.

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

konrad
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.

Weregerbil
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.

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

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

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

Weregerbil
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.

Weregerbil
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?

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

||-MARKO-||
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.

Weregerbil
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.

jasevx
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.

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

Weregerbil
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.

http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/PICT0353.jpg

And the Sword Masters

http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/PICT0351.jpg

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

http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/PICT0360.jpg

http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/PICT0355.jpg

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.

Catferret
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...

konrad
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

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

Weregerbil
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.

Weregerbil
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)

http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u113/davidgilbert/Bling2.jpg

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.)

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

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

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

Weregerbil
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. ;)

Weregerbil
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........

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

Weregerbil
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.

Catferret
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?
