Those endless spells are brilliant Cap! I love them both, but the Bad Moon really, really pops. I love it!

Thanks guys!  Iím really glad you like them!  :)

Iím trying to keep up the pace, and so Iíve started work on the Loonking himself:




The inks are still wet on him lol.  Also as you can see, Iíve painted him purple.  Because heís The King.  ;D

And the spells were finished off too:



Iíll aim to keep up this pace and finish the king and the shaman asap.  Thanks again!

Looking great Calamity, the mushroom skull looks really smooth, is it a gloss varnish on it?

Thanks magenb, glad you like them!  And you might be surprised to hear thatís no varnish on the mushroom at all!  Just regular paint, thinned down and layered.  ;D

Personally, I think it looks a little flat and thus it might need some work to make it pop as much as the moon.

Iíve continued work on the King.  So far so good but heís got such a gap on his cloak.  A real cock up.  :(




Also I got my hands on these:



Shootas from the old Skull Pass box.  Great stuff, great poses, will make the unit more unique, but I canít abide that spray job on them.  Anyone know the best way to strip paint off plastics?  And how to handle those gaps on the bases?

Hey bud, looking good. Love my night gobbos. For removing paint use simple green. It might take a few days but how i do it is soak for a day, use a tooth brush the scrub them. If not enough, let soak for another 24 hrs and repeat. I had one model that took a week and some others that just took an evening. As for the gap, green stuff or model builders putty. Also an old trick, mix baby powder in some old paint like a paste and apply. Ive also used Elmer's glue to fill the little areas on the bases especially if I'm putting ballast on it.

Keep 'em coming. 8)

That king is looking great Cap. I can see what you mean about the cloak, but I wouldn't worry too much...I only keyed in on it after you mentioned it. Most will be looking at other details and probably not even see the cloak seam. That said, some green stuff should tidy it up and you'll be able to paint over it easily enough, so it can be rectified...althoug h as you say, it's a bit frustrating.

I like the oldschool minis too. Good luck stripping the paint; I've never tried stripping paint, so can't offer any advice I'm afraid.

Great advice, thank you guys!  ;D

Iíve not done any serious painting in a while (distractions are coming from everywhere) but I did manage to assemble some Boingrot Bounders:



Weirdly, I appear to be missing the parts for 5 of them.  ???

And just for fun I put all my stabbas together in one max sized unit to see what itíll look like:



It looks threatening imo.  8)

Your not wrong. When lots of wee peeps are coming at ya with pointy things it can be overwhelming. For instance a porcupine by itself is intimidating but a bunch, whew.

Quantity has a certain quality of its own after all. ;)

Quick update; no new painting done (time thieving people everywhere  :P) but I have just received my latest delivery; more squig hoppers, a loonboss on a giant cave squig and sneaky snufflers.  Looking forward to making them all!  ;D

can't wait to see how you paint these up.

Nothing beats a gobo army for character, which is why 40k needs a gretchin army :)

The git horde looks like it's about to conquer in style   8). Great work, Calamity!

Thanks!  Also I agree on the need for a 40K Gretchin army 100% lol

Thank you!  Best of luck with the sale!

Thanks!  ;D

Update; I have for the most part, finished his highness the king:




Might still need to sort that gap out.

Also, canít forget the Lions:






Iím looking to see if I can spice up the base somewhat before applying the texture paint.  Also I need to find suitably sized chapter badges for it.  Heís looking a little plain in comparison to the infantry lol.
