Looking spiffy for sure. How about white outer with a deep red inner liner?

Great progress on the Librarian, Calamity, looks like you're finding your groove again!

Thank you all for the responses guys!  :)

Iíll post more detailed responses later but in the meantime, the Librarian is nearly finished:




Iím mostly happy with him (good call on the white cloak guys!) but in the course of working on his head I messed up his eyes, and I just canít get those nice bright yellow eyes back.  :P

Looking snazzy, Calamity! If you want the eyes to pop again, you can layer some wraithbone on there and use some contrast on it. Just an idea!

That looks very fitting for him. Good job, I'll have to remember that for my librarian.

Yeah, that white robe really works on that Libby. Nice work Cap. This guy will look superb when he's done. Keep it up man!

Using white for the robes was a good call, nice work Calamity.

Thanks guys!  Hope everyoneís doing ok.  :)

Iím currently finishing off the Librarian and the Dreadnaught.  Both way behind schedule but I have a valid excuse: I ran out of of Nuln Oil.  ;D

No excuse for not having fixed the Interceptors though.  Itís almost a fear at this point.  :P

But regardless, now that the oil supply has been topped up, Iím back to work.  Whilst I work on those, hereís some new arrivals:





Iíve another box of intercessors to make too.  Once theyíre done, Iíll have a full, codex compliant Demi Company made up.  How about that?  ;D

A full Demi Company? That really is impressive work Cap.

I've lost count of the number of projects I've started and then put to one side because I lack 1 paint or something; in my case, it can lead to the terminal end of a project! Here's hoping that you get some Nuln Oil soon and get back to it.

Hello again folks!  I got my Nuln Oil and Iím back in business!  ;D

So I probably shouldnít be sharing these just yet but Iím too excited to keep them to myself.  Iím on the verge of finishing my first batch of grots:



Only the bases and bones to finish up.  Those are way way WAY overdue lol.

I also, with some difficulty, managed to repair those Interceptors:



I was also trying to finish off the librarian but I donít think I have the right paints to create a good glowing force sword.  A sort of teal colour.  Yet another trip to the store for paint!  ;D

Great work, Calamity! You're on the up and up now that you got those inceptors fixed! Love the goblins! 8)

both units a looking good Calamity. The goblins have always had a lot of character to their models, so much fun to paint :)

Nice work Cap! I'm jealous of those Gobbos. I found painting a few Gretchin to be incredibly fun and rewarding, so have been tempted by the AoS line...I just have too much other stuff that I want to paint first!

The gobs came out really nicely and obviously I really like the Inceptors...I always like your marines. Just such a great colour scheme executed very well.

Thanks MyeníTal!  Yes Iím relieved that the interceptors are ok again lol.

both units a looking good Calamity. The goblins have always had a lot of character to their models, so much fun to paint :)

Thanks!  They do too donít they?  I canít wait to get started on some of the newer kits!  ;D

Looking good. Glad to see you at it. Keep up the great work.

Thanks Dread will do!

Thanks!  They are incredibly fun to paint, and if you ever get around to AoS I heartily recommend them lol.

And thank you!  Iím particularly proud of the marines myself.  Probably my best work if I do say so lol.

Speaking of which, the Librarian is now finished:




Very happy with how he came out.  Although I should probably try to present him in better light.  My phone has a random camera quality it seems.  :P

Same for the goblins too:



Might need to work on those rims though...

Iím also working away on the dreadnaught and hopefully making a start on some of the gobbo characters very soon too!
