Holiday painting. . . . . with no rhyme or reason

An Ogre, Norse Dwarf and a Beastman walk into a bar.  . . . . .

Sounds like an old WHF joke I know but it also sums up my painting at the moment.

An original intention was to finish off specific elements of my armies but I have just been grabbing shiney stuff out of the lead mountain as it caught my eye.

As soon as I bought this Fjaler, Norse Dwarf at BOYL I wanted to get paint on him. He was primed as soon as I walked in the door!

This fella just appealed to me the second I laid my eyes on him.

Next up is an Ogre Irongut which has also had some converting and greenstuffing.

He was put together while I was converting this fella.

As is the way at the moment the secondary miniature pushed it's way to the front of the painting que.

Next up is a Foundry Beastman.

Once again the Beastman I had had converted by Kev Adams was supposed to be my first choice but this fella seems to have taken precedence.

For some reason I also painted up two Space Wolves . . . . . . No idea why?

Miniatures painted / sold this year = 90 (silver tower does not count)

Target 100

Miniatures bought 30 (damn you BOYL!!)
379 miniatures to go!
60 in the black this year


  1. That dwarf is great. Love the pose and his bright beard is cool.

    The beastman's pose is strange. I like it, though he does look rather confused for some reason?

    1. I fell in love with the Dwarf immediately and as it was BOYL I had to paint it in old skool bright colours ;0)

      I think the Beastman is looking into the distance and licking his lips !?!

  2. Its good to complete a whole range of different stuff all at once, I always feel as if I've dipped into loads of different bits of my hobby, makes me content (sad, I know)

    1. I totally agree (not with the sad bit!), dipping in keeps my interest level up and it is supposed to be an enjoyable hobby . . . The key for me is to only dip into certain projects so at least something gets finished!!
