100 miniatures (and counting)


Today I passed the land mark of painting / moving on 100 miniatures. Not bad considering its only June and the (Summer) painting months are on their way.

With the completion of the above miniature I managed to finally get my 20 point High Born Covenant, Warmachine army painted up after over a year of faffing about!

It's funny how passing a mile stone gives you a second wind and I also managed to get 3 grots painted up while waiting for the ink washes to dry on the Mage.

and then while the ink washes were drying on the Grots I made a start on one of the Fenris Zombie Dogs I bought at Salute this year.

I have three and have decided to paint one up for a pet for Alexia, every time she gets to rise a Khador War hound from the dead. This first one is from killing Tims' War hound, game before last.

Did not really want to blog this one as he looks pants in the photos but the Thrall was painted in under 15 minutes and I figured at least one of the Thralls deserved a coat of paint after killing off the Slone Ranger last game

Lets crunch the numbers
Miniatures painted / sold this year = 105
Miniatures bought this year = 18
323 miniatures to go.
I was feeling ready pleased with myself until I looked at Dave Taylors blog and saw he has painted (to an expectional level!!!) over 350 miniatures!

    1. Cheers.

      I start to think that and then fellas at the club pull out entire armies they have painted in under two weeks.

      It certainly gives me the kick up the bum I need.

  2. I think I have a touch of goblin envy :-)

    1. Thanks.

      Say what you like about GW. I think they have the Ork and Goblin sculpts absolutely nailed!

      I must love painting them.

    2. That should be "I just love painting them!"
