Update, sort of.....

Well you don't have to be a rocket scientist to work out I have trouble with diaries, journals and blogs.
I've got a little bit to go on my unit of Dwarven Miners. Only the hard hats and the candles remain.
I've modified my second part of this months' allotment slightly and have decided to complete a unit of Thunderers instead.
At this stage I'll still have a bit to complete, but it will be possible.
There will be a picture update in the next few days.
I guess the main thing is to have all the units, war machines and characters finished at the end of the challenge.

Some pictures..

Well pictures is a very generous term for these test shots.
I'll have to figure out how to take better photos.

You'll notice on the finished (nearly) unit I haven't completed the bases. I'm working on something which should incorporate a display board. It's a work in progress but I'll see how it turns out.

End of April update

Well there are a few things I need t make note of if I allow myself to get talked into a painting challenge:

1) Make sure the first month is not a month which has your birthday or your wife's birthday. Mine is the 14th and Di's is the 21st.
2) DON'T buy the DVD of seasons 1 to 3 of Game of Thrones for your birthday present. It's not humanly possible to leave them unopened.
3) Try and make sure you allow a month to plan what you propose to paint.

Having said that, I've painted one unit of 21 Warriors to a tabletop standard, not great but painted. The second unit is 80% painted.
I'll post photos once I can figure out where I've put my card reader.

For May I'll be trying to finish off the remaining bits of the warrior unit, a unit of 21 Miners plus something else which I haven't quite decided on yet.

Slow progress

Well it's been a bit of slow going.
Most of my time has been working out a bit of a colour palet to got through not only this unit but my army.

I may have to take a better photo later tonight.

On another note I had o try and buy some Bleached Bone. No such luck as that paint has been out of stock for over 10 years.

Well after cracking open some long lost containers I've discovered that not only do I hvae more bits than I thought, but I have lost some figures over the years.

I'll have to sort through the mess that is losely called the study to see if I can find the wayward thunderers and bowmen.

I think I'll attack the 2 units of Warriors first, try and get them out of the way first.

I guess I should by the newest Army book to see if I can indeed make a "legal" army.

I need help !!!

Hi, my name is Rupert and I have a problem.
I have more miniatures than I can paint in this lifetime, just don't tell my wife please.
Once I figure out how to, I'll post a photo of the Dwarves I have.
As an example I have 3, yes 3, Anvil of Doom miniatures.

Well that's it then.
I've thrown my hat into the ring so now must follow through.
Brownie points will be spent and hopefully my Word Of Warcrack addiction can be held in check long enough to get this sorted.

Not sure I'm looking forward to sorting out the short, stout fellows.
Will post a picture later tonight.

First one.

Well this will be an experiment !!

I've decide to help a mate out and join him on the quest to paint some figures in 6 months.
I've been collecting for years but find ways to avoid painting, som much so I even blamed the kids! They might eat the minis or drink the paint, that sort of thing.

Helping to motivate myself and Pete will be the main driving force behind dusting off some of my old favourites and get my Stunties on the gaming table !
