Chaos Space Marine update and Granny Weatherwax!

Happy New Year everyone!

It's been over a month since my last post and to be honest not too much has been done due to the usual festivities over the Christmas holidays however I have managed to get a few things sorted.
Firstly we have something a little left field that I painted up for a present, Granny Weatherwax.  I had a lot of fun painting her as she was quite a departure from what I'm use to and from the reaction she received it looks like I'll be painting a few more Discworld miniatures in the future.

On the 40k front I've gotten wave one of construction done and managed to get them base coated when the weather allowed.

I've started construction on a few Forgeworld items now but another project (though related) has jumped in the queue somewhat...

New Project: Chaos Space Marine Armies (Black Legion and Death Guard)

It's been some time since I last posted but I've been away on a rather nice holiday along with a few other real life things which came up however all has not been quiet at the hobby desk!  In fact I would say I've been rather productive as I dived head first into my Chaos Space Marine armies for 40K.  As usual there's a definite old school feel to the armies as I'm using some of my favourite miniatures from when I first collected the Heretic Astartes but this doesn't mean they are limited to just older minis, in fact they'll be a range of minis included from Forgeworld all the way through to the brand new Blackstone Fortress game.

So here's a break down on how the build has gone, it started with a large box of mainly metal bits which I had tremendous fun routing through, and ended up a rather nice looking force.

I've now got around half of this undercoated and as soon as the weather improves I'll get the rest done too.  What remains to be built are a squad of the Hounds of Abaddon (Khorne Berzerkers kitbashed from AOS minis) along with some current CSM vehicles, a whole host of Forgeworld goodies and all the new Death Guard minis.

Wood Elves and Dungeon Saga

Time for another update from Amy's painting table and as usual she's been very busy.

First up we have a couple of characters for her wood Elf army from Kings Of War, a King on Dragon and a mounted Mage.

Then to change up what she was painting she opted to dive into Dungeon Saga again, painting up the minions from the first expansion as well as some of the heroes and epic heroes (the leveled up versions of the characters from the core game) and then the big bad Undead Demon.

Undead Minions

Halfling Theif

Halfling Warrior (!?)

And just to show how small these guys really are here's a size comparison with the barbarian.

Epic Wizard

Epic Ranger

The Big Nasty, Ba'su'su

She's still working on more heroes for Dungeon Saga so they'll be another update soon.
