That looks great Calamity, it'll look even more amazing when you drop your chapter symbol in there :)

Thank you so much guys. :)

I thought Iíd post the (near) finished mini now:






The next thing will be to be add a chapter symbol and company markings to it.  I might outsource that, because it seems quite difficult.  :P

In the meantime, Iím starting work on painting the goblins.  Plus, Iíve a few more of them (and marines) to build.  Stay tuned!  :)

Looks great man! I just started working on my first primaris marines, and they are a joy to paint! I enjoy painting them far more than traditional marines.

Looks fantastic Calamity, I especially like the way it looks like the mud/ash of the base has spread to cover the pole of the banner and the models boots. Awesome stuff.

Wonderful, Calamity, truly impressed by what you achieved with that banner!

Thank you for all of your responses guys.  They really do mean a lot to me, and Iím thrilled to hear that you like my stuff.  :)

Sorry for the lack of activity on my part too.  I recently started a new job you see.  But now Iím back...and I see a bad moon rising:

SQUIG SPITTA!!!! I have one too. It's a great model. Seeing all the night gobbos warms my heart. I've been painting on mine a little here and there. Trying to get a game in with mine soon.

Respect to my fellow Git!  ;)

Iíve made some minor progress (would have liked to have done more but itís a long story):




Oh, and the Dreadnaught is assembled!



Well not quite.  Iíll probably leave him in sections for easy painting and transport.  But whatís important is that the individual sections themselves are assembled.

Great updates, Calamity, that Squig Spitta is 'uge! You've got a lot of goblins to paint, cannot wait to see how they come together! Also, glorious Dreadnought ;D!

Haha Calamity by name.......

Bloody hell that is a really bright blue.

With all those Goblins to assemble and paint plus that huge Squig Gobba any progress is a good thing.

Thanks bud!  :)

Awesome model!  After seeing this, I really canít wait to put mine together! :)

It is isnít it?  What a suitably wacky model for the grots!  In fact it was this model that got me interested in night goblins in the first place many years ago!

Oh yes.  Disaster is always around the corner when it comes to my projects!  ;D

And Iím noticing more of the coloured plastics entering the range.  Mostly on easy build kits.

And speaking of progress, Iíve very nearly finished my first batch of gitz:





They just need a touch of Stormhost Silver on the metals and Gorthor Brown on the boots and spear shafts and I can base them.  And maybe some touching up too.  Iím not sure about the eyes for example.

I think you've done a great job on the Goblins, Calamity. For the eyes, I'd try to do them like humanoid eyes, though to be honest not sure how to do that with the red variety. I would take a look at the Gloomspite Gitz battletome paint section for some inspiration. :)

The Goblins are looking good Calamity, I like the red eyes, gives them a bit of a creepy vibe :)

Hi folks!  Sorry for the lack of activity.  Iím trying to get back into a routine of regular work.

I did manage to make a start on this today:



Got it done in time for a game today, which I won!  Ending a very long losing streak!  ;D

Also, I managed to get myself a nice new display cabinet:



It really helps encourage me to get the painting done.  ;D

Nice work, Calamity, that Loonshrine is coming together nicely! Also love that painting shelf! I must content myself to store my minis in a box for now :P. I hope to get one of those crystal fortress cases and try those out.

I'm super jealous of that cabinet. It'll look great once you've filled those shelves with painted minis.
