More Dwarf Trays in progress...

Evening,

         I started on a couple more TableWar trays for my dwarfs.   I got two layed out and filled.

Wood Cut, glued, and weighted to dry

 
Layed out

Framed




Using the Two layers of painters tape, Let the Spackle dry for a couple hours and pull off the top layer.  Gives a nice edge




Sanded and cleaned up, ready for the cork.

Can't see the Forest for the Trees...Part 1

Morning,


   Well after some jumping back and forth between different ideas and not being able to settle on anything.  I decided to go ahead and work on some Wood Elfs, more specifically Forest Spirits.   I will most likely end up putting some elfs with them, but this will mainly be about the trees.  I figured what I would like to get done I already have besides 1 box of dryads and maybe a couple boxes of elfs.  I finished up some test models




I think I may change out the eye color and match the vines/leaves, but I haven't decided yet.

Right now I'm working on getting the bases and unit trays textured and ready for paint so I finish them in a nice large batch.  Then I have 3 sprues of dryads to build and I will be ready to start painting the first batch/unit.

Whats on the work Table...

Morning,

       Just putting a small update up.   I haven't had much time to do anything recently, but I have made some tiny steps towards working on something new.

       Right now I am been flipping and flopping between a couple different things I would like to work on, just haven't decide which to focus on yet.   I can't get off the weekend for this years Armies on Parade, so that's out.   Which leaves me to focus on something else.   I still need to finish out the next couple of Tablewar trays for my dwarfs, so thats on the table.  I also dropped a few models into some Simple Green to strip.


Other than that I got options,  I could keep going with my dwarfs and work on one of the new themes I have in my head for them, thinking Slayers or Miners.  I also could work on some Ogres, I think I have enough hiding around here to do a completely new tribe.  Maybe using the ice bases on them with a couple of the big critters running around.   I also picked up a bunch of oop stuff from ebay for a Tree Spirit list, to go along with the Deepwood box I picked up on impulse awhile back.

(The Deepwood box is new, the rest is out of the closet of doom)

I also have a cool idea for a Slannesh WOC army, but haven't quite got a list I really like, and since it will be alot of metal, I need to have a good idea of what I need before I order.

I think I will go do some cleaning and yard work and think on it a bit more, I probably will at least do some test models this week, maybe that will help.   Or just paint up some Malifaux for a change of pace....

Its Over 9K...





Morning,

    I was logging in to put together a new post and noticed this little bit of the net recently breached 9000 page views.  So this the obligatory DBZ post.  Which is kinda cool since I just re-watched that episode this morning...

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to drop by and take a look.  and a even bigger thanks to those who have taken the time to post up comments.  I got lots of stuff in the pipeline that will hopefully pan out and make some pretty cool stuff.  So drop back by occasionally and take a look. Slowly but surely...

I should have post with some new stuff later today, hopefully...

Weds update...

Morning,

       Spent the day cleaning the closet of lost hope looking for something.   Found everything except what I was actually looking for....

       So the little project I had planned is put on hold till I find my old nagash model.  I bought it years ago when it was first released.  I know I have it somewhere just need to find it...

        other than that I found out my placing at bayou.  I place 67 out of 92.  Not bad at all.

Obligatory workspace pic, lots of magnets hanging about.
