Working on dwarfs

Hello there

January is almost at an end. I havnt had much time to paint but I had a goal and I have to manage atleast that or my army will never be finished. This months goal was:

1) 2 slayers
2) 2 miners
3) finished bases on at least 4 thunderers.

The main reason for goal no. 3 was... I hate doing bases. So, I am planning to do the bases first from now on. That way I aint stuck with a miniature I think I've done a great paint job with... and then still need to do the base, risking to hit the mini.Hope this amounts to alot of dwarfs with some paint on over the next few months.

Tomorrow I leave for Sweeden were I'll have some fun in the snow with my snowboard so I had to finish this months goal today, and I did. Here goes (mind, some of the minies were halfpainted from long ago so that why the style might varie)



Thunderers with finished bases ready for paint.

Despite spend quite some breath explaining how much in a hurry I've been... I've managed to paint 2 minies that wasnt on my list for this months goal... yeah I know its stupid but I felt like it and the only one pressured by that decision is me. So therefore I also finished a paintjob I started long ago on this miner hero.

Thats all from me for this month. Any comments to the painting is welcome. As always, I apolegise for the poor picture quality. Still working on that lightbox.

Cheers till next time.

First of 2012

Hello there

Its January 2012. Time should be spend digging yourself free from huge drifts of snow... but so far the Danish winter had barely made me  scrape frost off my windshield. Other than that I've spend much of my time in bed with back problems and a fever. Anyway, enough about the real world. Lets get going with the fantasy world!

This months bar is set:

1) 2 slayers
2) 2 miners
3) 4 finished bases on thunderers.

Now... I have to set these goals for myself, or else I know I wont get things done. Its been more than 10 years since I first started my interest for this universe and by know I've collected quite the amount of miniature. Since I rarely play but is more interested in the painting part, the incentive to get a complete army painted hasnt realy been there. However I really really want to have a complete painted army so its my goal to paint at least a few every month. I am STILL, though, a moppet at following my own goals so when I saw an old dwarf pointing at me from the desktop I hat to paint him... well... at least he is still in my army.

Sorry for the bad lighting. I am planning to go buy a lightbox so I can take some proper pictures of what I paint, but I am not sure I have room for it :D

Anyhow. I have spend a lot of money on models lately, so right now I have on my list:

1) manfred von carstein
2) Vlad von Carstein
3) squig / lizard duel
4) Harry the Hammer
5) Griff Obervald
6) Bör Dragonbane (avatars-of-war)
+ my 250 dwarfs...

Take care.
