    Nice work sir, hadn't realised you had come back to doing Orks in BFG. Now my recollecting it seems somewhat less... special...
    You'll always be special, mate lol!

    Captain Brown, thank you for the kudos too, mate!

    It's been a while since I've posted but I haven't been idle. I have been magnetising the bulk of my collection so they can sit neatly inside Really Useful Boxes. The tutorial I followed can be found here. One advantage of this is I've been able to properly organise my display cabinet so there is some structure and attractive organisation of figures instead of the mass scrum there was before - the Really Usefuls came in really handy as a 'transit' stop during this process.

    I have also been churning out Imperial Guard - I intend to post some group shots of my infantry company very soon.

    I have decided to post my whole bloomin lot of 160 zombies in a mob of pics! You can see an example of my magnetised basing in the first picture too:



    I also have some more progress on my Ork Reaver fleet, being their flagship the War Bastard. I was tinkering with this model for literally years, slowly adding more and more junk to the hulk until I was happy enough to paint it. Painting was primarily several different spray cans, some heavy metal drybrushing then numerous weathering powders.
    I will have some more pictures using my starfield battle mat in the future - I have a few escort ships and cruisers that need to be touched up before then.




    As we march into the second half of 2021 I have taken stock of my hobby progress in the year so far. I've managed to paint 90 models this year, creeping up on my 2020 total of 107 rather quickly!! Here's a list of what I hope to finish in the next wee while - I always tell myself NOT to post To Do lists like this on my hobby threads but it helps keep things in perspective!

    • 3 BFG Ork escorts to refurbish (weathering powders/ some modelling)

    • 6 BFG Ork cruisers to refurbish (weathering powders)

    • 15 assorted Imperial Guard infantry to paint

    • Inquisitorial Henchman kitbash to paint

    • Giant lizard to paint

    • Giant spider to paint



    Thank you everyone for looking at my pile of junk, I really appreciate you guys!

    Smart work Ragsta. I am also a fan of the RUB but I haven't magnetised them yet; I do use them for storage and transport though.

    Thank you Codsticker, you're a gent. Yes, the RUBs have helped me organise my collection significantly as I've said. They've come in handy as a motel for relocating models to stay in haha!

    There's also the risk that once my display cabinet is full new projects could live in them with at least some visibility... Hmmm...

    Re: Ragsta returns to the Imperium

    The weather in gloomy Scotland continues to be awesome. I have recently discovered that actual daylight photos of my hobby makes me feel better about what I'm achieving for some reason. Therefore, I have exploited our front room to maximum potential while I still can!! My new job starts at the end of July, so I still have SOME time to eke out a bit of hobby...

    I took the opportunity to refurbish some of the cruisers as mentioned in the last post. Oh, and post them all up here of course:



    There are 4 Ravagers to be added as they need a little bashing before I consider them done. Also got the chance to use my lovely star mat that a mate got for me. Good times!

    Re: Ragsta returns to the Imperium

    Thank you, Codsticker!


    We've been away on a lovely 2 week holiday (highly sanitised and restriction aware thank you very much) and now I'm back. I am still waiting to start my job but I have a suspicion I will be getting official confirmation any day now so I REALLY want to finish some stuff off before then.

    With this in mind I have finished off an allied force for my primary Flexberg company, being light infantry elements of the 44th Proxima Salvad Prosecutors:






    I wanted to reflect their being a more self sufficient, hi tech force than the grizzled Flexbergers. They therefore all have respirator heads or gas masks (BIG thanks to Skinnereal) to make them more sci fi and capable in hazardous environments. They also have backpacks and extra kit aplenty, with each squad carrying a comms pack and weapons with extra bling.

    Heavily influenced by the excellent converting skills by The Rook Archive to make the standard Cadians look more dynamic in action I shaved wedges out of waists and ankles, repositioning and bodging accordingly.

    They were a refreshing change from my previous Guard sure enough! I'm pondering giving them APCs using Leman Russ hulls, reflective of the WW2 Kangaroo APCs used by the Allies. BUT then I start thinking maybe I should use the tanks to add to the Flexberg instead? Any thoughts?

    Thank you all
    Ragsta

    Great painting Ragsta and your hacking and slashing are subtle but a big improvement on the figures. No strong feelings either way on the Russ; if time is a consideration use them as for the Flexberg, if that's not an issue turn them into APC's.

    Re: Ragsta returns to the Imperium

    Codsticker, thank you for the kind words. Much appreciated as always! Yes, I have decided to bundle all the armour into another allied formation - that gives me more scope to use different paints and aesthetics again

    I have been nearly two months into my new job. It was a massive change for me - leaving the financial office management side of life for working in the NHS in theatres. I am glad I made the change. The change in lifestyle has been formidable, and the learning curve and different shift pattern is proving to be quite something!? As a result my hobbying has been a little less significant, but I welcome the changes and look forward to adjusting my hobby pattern accordingly.

    Recently I shared with you my gribbly zombie horde. I would now like to show you my similarly sized post apocalypse mob of zombie survivors!












    The bulk of the horde have been cobbled together using the now defunct Wargames Factory zombie apoc survivor kit. It got to the point where I was running out of weapon arms so I made a few unarmed civvies too - that was strangely satisfying.

    Also figures from Hasslefree and Pig Iron Productions. Some vague resemblances can be seen here including Chuck Norris, Bill Clinton, Gordon Freeman and the father of Arseface (if you get that reference right away well done you lol).


    Stay safe out there, and for goodness sake wash your hands!!

    Ragsta

    These are really good Ragsta, I really like the lady in the trench-coat with dual pistols (in between Lady Who's Date Was Interrupted and the stripper). Scooby Do right below her looks ready to unmask some "zombies" (he's super confused when their faces just rip off, but he keeps trying).
