Painting Challenge Update

I must apologise as I've been a little remiss with my postings of late. I'm spending a fair chunk of time with a brush in my had for the Challenge but then not bothering to post any of my work here after it appears on the Challenge blog. All that aside, here's what has been painted since my last update...

Da Deff Kaps, another unit of Savage Orc Boyz with hand weapons, shields still to come.





Da Purpul Porkas, mounted Savage Orc Boyz.

OMLGG!!! Just WHERE did you get that sabretooth jumpsuit?!?




Savage Orc BSB, Warboss and hanger on...


Old skool metal Wood Elf Dryads (because I could)...



15mm battle suits and spider drones for the Titan Marines...




A few 15mm walkers for who-knows-what...



More loyal servants of the Emperor join the Angelicus Mechanicus...






And lastly the start of my Warmaster Empire army...






I've also managed to get in a couple of games with Ev (Warhammer fantasy) and Nug (Shako Napoleonics) in both of which I had my rear end towelled up, in no small part due to my appalling dice rolling. Hopefully my luck improves tomorrow against Cory in Flames of War!

And despite the above, my lead pile has been added to once again thanks to the amazing generosity of the many wonderful people I game with. More Warmaster Empire and 40K from Ev and Claire, a Char B1 bis from Cory and Anita, FoW Carriers from Marcus and a Desert Caravan from Mr Dave Docherty Esq., who of course made good on our Handbag Side Challenge as any gentleman would. Thank you all!

Yes, Shaeffer's IS complete and pretty much MINT. Yes, I did squeal like a girl.
Til next time...

Cheers,
Millsy

  6. Fantastic, this makes me want to play WH! I don't know how you're managing this blistering pace of quality and quantity painting.

  7. That is some ridiculous amounts of painting done in a very short time! And the quality still is some of the best in the whole challenge! Hats of to you mate!

    1. Thanks Samuli, I really appreciate that. I'm trying hard not to let the quality slip. After all, I'm keeping these for a long time so I'd best be happy with them!

    2. I'm not editing, PK is and he's doing a sterling job! I'm twiddling my thumbs at the moment, waiting for part three of a certain series on pulp gangsters... [whistles]

      The spreadsheet is putting on weight. He's going on a diet this week (along with me!) as I go back to work.
