So this bad boy is on the painting table! (Ok technically he's been on the painting table for months, but now he's slated to get actually painted!)


Son wants red with black o.O like red wings going to necrotic black... he always wants to challenge me ><

Those Stormvermin also look great!

I'd like to see the litter!

(Guildy looks on in confusion as they appear to have moved the 'quote' button and muscle memory is having a hard time finding it :P)


Here's the 'vermin with the Litter =D I am in the process of building a place to put all our finished minis (converting an area to storage and putting up shelves) so most of the minis are just sitting out on the table atm. As an aside if someone had told me you have to dust these things, I would have started on the storage a lot sooner lol





Also took a break from:




To do some work on these:




We played our latest game Saturday (I lost, again) and I really wanted to have my trukks whole and painted, but they were bought off ebay so Saturday they were pretty much in pieces. I'd been working on cleaning them up since I got them, from some really horrid paint and superglue problems, and I finally had the impetus to do a little work on them, mostly assembling and basecoating the majority (Still some bits that need priming as I added them later, hence you can still see the original red paint - that is stuck on like crazy)

I managed to put some of the stuff in plastic containers, but I really need to get more lol Especially taller ones, I think, for stuff like my son's Terrorgheist! Anyway, the room's coming along (it used to be a kitchen nook, but the boys' have outgrown the table as well as broken it anyway) - I need to make an Ikea run this weekend, they have a glass case I've been eyeing for only ~69$ US and it would hold a LOT of minis for display.

Back from Vacation =D My and my #2 son drove to Washington to visit my sister, and dad. Was a long trip but worth it. Really enjoyed ourselves, though as always, wish we'd had more money to visit stuff and so on. So much to see in the states, I'd forgotten. We managed to hit Multnomah falls, Lateroulle falls, Mt. Adams, Lacamas Lake, the Redwoods, Salt Lake and a few other places. Would have liked to also go spelunking as we went through areas with some fantastic caves but no time lol


Really missed my computer! and my forums, and my minis as well (took a small paint kit with me but didn't get much done, as the light just wasn't good and again, time) Anyway, to make this a little more on topic :P here's what was waiting for me on my return!! <3 Bones <3 (plus a few other stuffs)

Thus.... it begins.....




Just dry fitting atm, trying out positions figuring out where the tentacles go etc. Did already prep it (washed) so that's done. It's sitting on the board that will become its base hopefully. I'm honestly wondering whether it'd be better to get a piece of 14x14 instead (that's 12x12 craft plywood atm).

Well I haven't gotten very far on my Kraken atm. I did get in some more fish minis to use in the diorama (yay!) and have been building the seascape in my head. I'm still dithering a bit about whether to try to show the Kraken above the water or below. I'm leaning more towards below completely.


I practiced some seaweed technique on my ork shoreline bases.


I took tiewraps (like bread wrappers), twisted them up a good bit, primed and painted and shaded them.

- learned to use a thinner width tie wrap, also, twisting them up so they look better on smaller bases is probably a better idea


I took Vallejo water effects and made some polyp type things - basically I just dotted some water effects on wax paper. Then after that had dried, I painted it with Nurgle's Rot, a semiopaque technical paint from GW.

I also took the water effects and used ti to give the seaweed/kelp a 'wet' look. Overall I think it did ok, but could be improved.




Oh and then instead of working on the Kraken some more I got distracted and built "Bubba":

Trying to get back into workin on the Kraken diorama!


I did a little beginning work on the board - basically priming it and slathering gel medium on top. It'll be covered in a coupld grades of sand after it dries. Aquarium plants will likely be used to cover parts of it as well.


I also primed the fish that're going into it (well marine animals anyway) and got the boat primed in brown liner. It's still separate, just dryfitted together.


I'm still pondering what colours to use on the Kraken itself.


relatively boring seafloor:




And the 'crew' of the diorama, Kraken and friends:





Ehh ignore orks in background! they're not included :P
