Finally finished the last of the Mauridians. One set of minis down...until I buy more Mauridians.

Next, not sure, whatever catches my fancy.

I'm not so sure I'd want to get hit by a missile with a "dog brain" AI.

Hmm. So for august I'm winding down my Eldar army, and winding up my Necron army (in anticipation of the new army book). I also have a Decados and Hawkwood fleet to finish for Noble Armada (to which I'll add another fleet when I scrape cash together...thinking Vuldrok or Kurgan), and we may be starting a Pathfinder campaign, so I may see a triumphant return to fantasy minis! In the meantime, here is what is on my bench:

1. Eldar Maugan Ra: 90% 99% done, just a few highlights, paint the base, clear & dullcote, and flock.
2. Eldar Jain Zair: basecoated tonight 8-13-11. Highlight done 8-14-11 and big '80s hair basecoated.
3. Eldar Bharraoh: primed 8-12-11. 1st basecoat 8-14-11
4. Eldar Avatar: must be done by Labor Day!!! Primed and "lava" channels painted. May have to use wet blending on parts :O
5. 35 Necron Warriors: already basecoated; washed tonight 8-13-11. Finished 10 except basing 8-14-11.
6. 3 Necron Pariahs: basecoated and washed 8-13-11.

For some reason, I'm on a big western kick. The fact that the Savage Worlds minis keep coming out seems to be fueling this... now I'm waiting for my next package from Reaper...

Yes, it's my real face. But not my real hair.

After screwing up 3 successive reworkings of skin tone...a trip from Oompa Loompa Orange to Albino Gray to Jaundice Yellow to Fresh Road-Apple (in a quest for Mediterranean Olive), I'm debating whether or not to dip that chain fighter, relegate it to the wall of shame for a few months, or just push out sloppy work to be done with it. I've had a love-hate relationship with it for a couple months now, and I'm getting sick of looking at it. A shame too, as it's the best eye job I've ever done.

After that is my crossbowman-turned-rifleman, the ferryman of the dead, and if I have any cash to spare an experiment or two into basing and/or making armor really stand out through creative application of clear. There was a really cool tutorial on running water hiding somewhere, I may try to do that under Charon's boat if I'm feeling really, really inspired. If I can't afford to play with basing, I may just screw up a mini or two playing with thinned paint in the name of learning a little bit about washing and glazing. Regardless, I've got my fingers crossed that I'll have the cash to get a new set of brushes, find a basing style that works, and start back into the hobby proper sometime before Thanksgiving. I really want to field a CAV at the next local Battletech Grand Melee, just to see how many heads turn :upside:.

Edit: Screw it. Chain fighter's on the wall of shame. Got more done on the hacked-up dwarf in half an hour than I have in weeks on the other one.

Started work on a GZG grav tank. Also going to work on Candy, Anime Heroine.

I'm not so sure I'd want to get hit by a missile with a "dog brain" AI.

The turret for the tank as well as the top half of the hull are base coated. Also been working on a Basestar while waiting for paint to dry on the tank.
