Grimgorz Grimy Ladz, Da Finish!

So, I'm done. It's 2 days before Northstar and I'm done. It was a ton of stuff to do, and I needed some help in the end, but it's all done. Let's take a final look, shall we?


Just completed a really fun commission.

Goal was Estalian Themed Ogre to use as a unit filler.

Grimgorz Grimy Ladz, Update 3

It's been a full week since my last update, what progress have I made?
Well I had to admit defeat last night and call in the big gunz (aka my wife) to help with a few tasks while I finish up the painting. She's already flocked most of the bases, added a few basing details to break up the flatness, and built me a display board. Otherwise, I've finished up all the assembly work and I'm damn near done with the painting, too.

Parade of Banners - High Elves

After seeing my old VC banners in the Army of Sylvania post, I went back through all my old army books to snag the paper banner templates. I will be posting a different army each day!

Pro Painted #3?

A reader sent in a very interesting youtube vid. I think this is definitely worth a watch while you're painting away.

I'm really feeling for this dude. Hope it's resolved well.

I've read somewhere that these paint jobs would be in the $8,000 USD range! Nutty.

I'm curious what you folks think?
