ugghh the silicone has gone off, so had to order some more.
Dang it.17/09/2021 at 18:38 #16194325/09/2021 at 10:07 #16226325/09/2021 at 12:52 #162267
Currently a very basic wall section.
I will buy some more silicone and make a gate section, a tower and possibly some buttresses to add ad-hoc or not.26/09/2021 at 15:43 #162276
Neat – will you add a ruined section at all?26/09/2021 at 15:47 #16227729/09/2021 at 09:22 #16238310/10/2021 at 15:57 #162916
I have been pondering an undead army, cos A: cool, and B: quick to paint.
I did some undead for Samantha’s wizard to summon using magyks and whilst quick, it would still mean painting a few hundred models for an army.
Then I read about GW Contrast Paint: Skeleton Horde.
You are meant to use wraith bone undercoat and then use the contrast paint.
I don’t have wraith bone so went for bright ass white.
So here are 2 images of the contrast skelly bone.
The model in the middle had a drybrush of bone over the top, to help make it seem less flat.
The other 2 are just plain old contrast paint.
I prefer the look my old method gave me, but those are about 10 minutes a figure, where as these 3 figures took 15 minutes, which is enough of a time saving for the drop in appearance.10/10/2021 at 16:03 #162917
Just checked my old ones, I actually prefer the new middle one!
Double dang, could be Undead Army on the cards.10/10/2021 at 16:25 #16291910/10/2021 at 16:40 #162920ian pillayParticipant
The middle one looks good. I’ve been trying a grey base coat with dark brown wash and then a white dry brush. I will see if I can upload a pic.

I started on my 10mm giant.
Normally I would pick a more Old World name, but I have decided to name this after the amazing person that gave me the model for free!
So, here we have James with his first lick of paint.
Looking forward to him falling over on Samantha’s Dark Elves and squishing them.11/10/2021 at 19:04 #16298811/10/2021 at 19:53 #16298912/10/2021 at 13:18 #163041
Working on the walls a bit today, first batch cast…
Now for more, then to make a gatehouse bit.12/10/2021 at 13:31 #163043AlexParticipant
Lovely walls! (And the giant is ace too!)

Walls are excellent, nice and solid. The giant is a great model too, great brushwork.
As for the skeletons, I think I would spend the extra time anyway and go for the drybrush on top of the contrast paint. It just looks that much better.13/10/2021 at 09:19 #16311314/10/2021 at 08:13 #16317715/10/2021 at 14:16 #163293
Started assembling some Kallistra siege gear:
Going to keep them generic so they will work for both The Empire and the Dark Elves.
Though there is a bit of me that wants to theme them up!!!17/10/2021 at 17:04 #163400
Decided the Empire needs a big ass siege gun.
For this beast I am going to make a bigger base and add some fancy bits, here is a rough layout:
Cannon balls, buckets, trough of water for the buckets and some barrels of gunpowder.
I will also add a flag!!17/10/2021 at 18:27 #163403
Well that’s a subtle gun to say the least!18/10/2021 at 17:33 #163463
You have been busy Mike.
So much cool stuff!
Especially the castle walls, can’t wait to see them in a setup with your town.18/10/2021 at 17:36 #163465

Cheers, I suspect that could be a while, especially with the weather going damp.
I spray the models outside mostly so that is a pain, that and the colder wetter weather tends to sap my enthuisiasm.
Fingers crossed though!!
You given up on your 10mm for now?18/10/2021 at 17:36 #16346618/10/2021 at 17:49 #163467
I always see the cold and damp weather as an excuse to stay in and paint miniatures. But I can understand how it can sap the enthusiasm as well.
You given up on your 10mm for now?
I’m taking a break from them as I work on the orcs & goblins. Saying that…
Looking at your stuff is inspiring me to do a little more work on them, so I will probably flip between projects as and when I feel like it.18/10/2021 at 20:30 #163480

Do they help?18/10/2021 at 21:51 #16348624/10/2021 at 10:45 #163716
So here is the starting model:
And what I have now.
For when you absolutely positively have to blow the bloody doors off.24/10/2021 at 22:27 #163753Steven FrancisParticipant

Nice. Avon calling.
We get slapped around, but we have a good time!25/10/2021 at 14:19 #163783
Great work Mike!
Especially the diorama base and the way the crew blend in so well with it, even though they are on separate bases.
Have you named it?25/10/2021 at 15:20 #163785
A name you say…. Hmmmmm off for a ponder26/10/2021 at 14:08 #16383326/10/2021 at 19:49 #163853Steve JohnsonParticipant
Great work Michael!!!27/10/2021 at 05:28 #163864mark leslieParticipant
Love the resulting ‘little’ diorama. Sure needs a proud name – how about Sigmars Hammer?
Sounds fit for official records, but I’m sure the crew (and the ladies) may have a more colourful moniker for it.27/10/2021 at 11:47 #16387728/10/2021 at 06:41 #163915Wouter WolputParticipant
What a monster, the sound must be deafening.
A great model! Loving all the details.
