And that's not all

Thursday was my last day off work which probably means it will be my last chance to do a big block of painting for a while. On Sunday I ordered some Reaper miniatures (from Spirit Games) which arrived on Tuesday. I held off working on them until I had the night goblins done as they were needed for a game of Warhammer on Wednesday whilst the Reaper minis were for our weekly D&D game on Thursday.

So this is what I managed to finish on Thursday - and apart from Hasslefree's Shimmer all these were unpainted when I picked up my paintbrushes on Thursday morning. It was a hectic day but I got all of them finished in time for the game.

And I found the camera at last so these pictures will be a bit better.

Firstly we have a bunch of character for our current Dark Sun 4e campaign along with a couple of others I had to hand.


And also some kids from Hasslefree for when I play RPGs with the girls.

Aren't they cute. Next up will probably be the Arachnarok.

And the rest

A frantic evening of painting followed by an afternoon of basing and as promised I have some more photos.

Firstly a couple of trolls. I started these many years ago but it took until last night to actually get round to finishing them.


Secondly the main event. Night goblins fahsands of 'em ... well 83 anyway but it felt like thousands whilst painting them.


I have now painted every last night goblin I own and I may never need to paint another night goblin trooper ever again ... unless I paint 8 more and then I can field two hordes of 40 for KoW but for now they are finally all done. On to painting something a bit more colourful maybe.

About time too

Life has been a bit too hectic for some time and eventually my movement disorder became so bad that the doctor signed me off work for two weeks. When I finally got full control of my limbs back I took this golden opportunity to chill out and get on with some of the painting I've not been able to do for ages.

As you will be able to see from the pictures below it has turned out to be a pretty productive time. Sorry about the picture quality, my camera is (still) missing (again) so I took these with my phone.

First up are a couple of minis I finished a while back but hadn't got round to posting. That's a Black Tree Design stone troll and a citadel goblin bolt thrower (which I lost for about 10 years!) both have been waiting for a very long time in the painting queue.


Next up we have some Mantic Elf Scouts. I bought these when Mantic were selling the individual sprues earlier in the year so that I could make up a second unit of 10 with the ones I got as free samples ages ago.


And finally (for today) we have the reinforcements for my orc units to bring them up to 30 models each. The extra rank should be handy for WHFB and it makes then the right size for Kings of War too. These were bought earlier this year.


And that's not all ... but you'll have to wait until tomorrow at least to see the rest as I have a few last things to finish off.
