Welcome to my WIP thread!
After having a break from the hobby for about a year and a half, I decided to get back into it. So, all the models I had (not great paintjobs
) went into the Dettol and were all stripped. So basically, I'm starting afresh
I have quite a lot of models, I've a load of goblins, some galadhrim, uruk-hai, rohan, a lot of hero models and some monsters like cave trolls, a cave drake and a balrog
There's no point posting pictures of them all, as i'm sure you all know what they look like without paint, so it'd just be a waste of space.
Anyway, the main point of this is to track my progress and keep me motivated
I'm going into a tough exam year next year, so I'll be quite busy
But I hope to keep a constant (if slow) pace of painting. So just a warning, this thread won't be updated everyday
I do have big plans for the future in terms of my hobby, as I'm just coming to the end of putting together a booklet of army lists for the Forces of Evil and another one for the Forces of Good. They have army lists that I would like to collect, because before GW drop the lotr, I'd like to have a good few armies (small ones) of most of the main factions that appeal to me. Most of the armies are 500pts SBG (old LOME rules, because I don't really game much, more intersted in painting and display, so I haven't really checked out warbands), but some are more, and they're primarily for display on a themed base
But enough rambling, or I'll just bore you all
Here's my workspace, wher the magic happens! (hopefully
I constructed the painting station out of spare pieces of mdf.
And here are the first new purchases!
I decided now to invest in some good brushes, as good brushes are key to painting good models. The blue handled brush is not a GW brush. It's size 0000 and it'll be my designated 'faces' brush. The small drybrush will be for models. The medium drybrush for bases. The detail and fine detail will be my main brushes, doing the majority of painting and highlighting. My other detail brush that I have will be a designated 'wash' brush, and I've a spare fine detail one. Looking good so far
The Leadbelcher was the match for Boltgun Metal on the conversion chart, which I'll use to basecoat the metal parts on my models, because if I did that with Chainmail, it takes a load of washes to dull it down
I've started work on a warrior of Numenor, first model to be painted in a year and a half
It's going good though, I'll get pictures up later
And if you read through all that, well done!
Sorry for the long post, but needed to give the 'introduction'. Anyway, I hope this thread will keep your interest.
