Projects Started, Miniatures Completed.
It's been a long while since I posted. Late March 2018, all said.
Life, Work, Renovations, even the impending death of G+ all of these left me with little energy to post anything meaningful.
That being said, I did still get around to painting quite a few miniatures. I even completed a bunch of projects.
January was actually quite a busy time knocking out Necromunda Terrain.
This month saw me finish the first of the Adeptus Custodes Shield Captains.
At the same time, I finished up a Galatus Dreadnought.
While I was finishing off the red tones, I also finished up a Thousand Sons Dreadnought.
What Thousand Son wouldn't be complete without their Space Wolf, Vlka Fenryka, counterpart.
And whilst the grey was flowing, I cleaned up and finished Krom Dragongaze. Bringing his scheme back down from the blue back to the Heresy grey.
After the side track into the Space Wolves, I focused back on the World Eaters, Starting with a Contemptor Dreadnought.
Then I completed a centerpiece Leviathan Heavy Dreadnought.
About this time, the version of Warhammer 40k was released, Dark Imperium, and with it came a Lord of Contagion.
And to shake off the pestilence, I touched up my Vlka Fenryka Leviathan Heavy Dreadnought, with some knotwork.
March saw me start a lot of projects, but not quite finish them all. First up, I finished a kit-bashed Female Inquisitor using the Greyfax body and Skitarii head.
So after a few months of painting 30k/40k miniatures, I had to switch it up and focus on a different type of miniature, the Stuffies from Stuffed Fables a Plaid Hat Game. Fun little chibi-esque miniatures, that are a pleasure to paint, once you've cleaned up the mold and flash lines.
April saw me get stuck back into Necromunda. Starting with my Goliath Gang Leader kit-bash, made from Zug from Bloodbowl and various Goliath weapons.
I also completed a reliquary marker. This saw me using permanent markers for the first time, mainly for the scroll work.
After this, I finished up a Primaris Chaplain, for the Space Wolves. It wasn't totally Wolf-McWolfkins, but it was still obviously a Space Wolves Chaplain.
I also went back and completed a villain from Stuffed Fables.
On a side note, I started to gear up towards completing Amon from the Thousand Suns by finishing off his scenic base.
I started May by completing some more villains from Stuffed Fables
Then I finished up an Escher Gang Leader Kit-bash
And finally get stuck into my Goliath Gangers, starting with Varik.
June saw some more progress on the Goliath Gangers. I was taking an individual approach to these guys, as I am not too keen on batch painting. First up, this month, Bonesnapper.
Then I finished Skullshank.
Then came Nox the Ripper.
Then I finished up a Primaris Psyker, again minimalist Space Wolves (no Wolfy McWolfkin).
And I got my hands on a decent collage app, too.
All in all a pretty busy first half of the year. Maybe not as busy as some, but I still knocked over a bunch of projects.
Stay tuned for my progress in the later half of the year.
