  1. Nice job on the Scibor dwarf and fan-freakin-tastic start on the primaris. NMM gold looks really nice in particular. Can’t wait to see that one completed!

    1. Cheers, Toad! I’m really glad to hear you like both of these minis. I’ll be working hard on the marine for the next couple of weeks and you may see me back in the WIP on CMON if I can find the time soon as well πŸ™‚

    1. I was miserable for most of the time away so any positivity is mostly from being back πŸ™‚ I’m looking forward to seeing your next battle report when you get around to it. I know you’ve had a steep hobby hill to climb to get there but I have a feeling it will be worth it in the end πŸ™‚

  2. I was worried about you. I am heartily glad that you are OK. These are strange and trying times and when you suddenly went offline I knew something must of happened. Welcome back. πŸ˜€

    I was not prepared for the EPICness of that base. It really could be a piece of terrain by itself. Looks amazing to me and I hope it does well on cool mini or not. Maybe post a link so people who follow you here can vote.

    Thanks for linking to my blog and I’m glad you enjoyed the post. I’m enjoying our online friendship. πŸ˜€

    1. I thought about posting something saying that I’d be away for a bit but I honestly kept thinking, this computer repair won’t take much longer, until it did! Next time, I will probably do things differently and let everyone know what is going on.

      Many thanks for the kind words! It took longer to paint than I thought it would due to that epicness too! I can definitely post a link to the mini when I get it in the gallery. I may even hold off until next weekend to put it in the gallery so I can just throw the link into my next update. Thanks for the suggestion!

      You’re very welcome! I had the ulterior motive of laziness. You said it better than I could without some serious work, so why not just refer people to you instead πŸ™‚ I’m glad you’re doing well and staying safe and will be looking forward to seeing more hobby mischief out of you in the near future πŸ˜€


  3. Welcome back, add me to the list of worriers.
    While not a fan of big bases, they do work for display models. I especially like the one you are using, might have to take a look at Scibor .
    Your new wip looks interesting, rather odd to see a gas pump nozzle/handle on a figure :-). Agree with others, your green is great looking! I’m interested in your technique, when you start a model do you look to see how others have done it or just start out on your own? I usually have to look at others to make sure I don’t miss a detail.
    Again, welcome back!

    1. Thanks and my apologies for worrying you as well! Scibor makes some terrain pieces and to be honest, I had always thought of doing Moria or Balin’s Tomb relying on some of them as I think the movie version of Balin’s Tomb is a bit boring and lacking a little something. I do think one day I’d like to do some kind of a LOTR scene using some of his statues/terrain. I’d love to see what you can do with it as well since you are more skilled with terrain than I.

      Haha, he is very much half-built as I want to be able to reach all of the different parts of the model without blocking anything off.

      In terms of painting process, I would say I usually look to see what others have done as I often like to come up with my own color scheme if I can. Sometimes with LOTR, I’ll use reference images from the movie to guide how I paint something but those 360 degree images of minis on Games Workshop’s site are invaluable when it comes to figuring out what the little bits are, especially the ones on the back or the sides of the mini.

      I could probably write an article describing my painting process on different kinds of minis if that is something that would interest people. I think it might put some to sleep or just make them think painting is really hard but I might be being a bit too harsh in saying that πŸ™‚


  4. Good to hear that you guys avoided the worst of the riots, though being without your PC for that long wouldn’t have been any fun at all! 😦
    The Scibor dwarf looks great though – if that’s any (belated) consolation! Love the directional lighting incorporated into his NMM shield especially! πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks, mate! I learned a lot on that guy and the shield was a fun and interesting challenge but I think it is probably the best part of it overall so I’m really glad to hear you like it too πŸ™‚
