thank you for the kind words. Actually, the blending is rough as a badger's arse, but weathering doth cover a multitude of sins, so it's all good.

As for today, today I learned: I hate checks.

Again, it's scruff to the rescue, and once I hit it with oils it'll get even scruffier. How in t'seven hells do people get neat lines on their checks? Don't be all tellin me about stencils n suchlike, as I tried that, and lining up every single teeny tiny square of masking tape was even more nightmarish than painting it by hand. Yuck. And that was just the front - still have the back to do :roll:

Feeling a bit too under the weather to paint, I just put together my skellingtons for Shadespire, and did some fiddling about with decks.

@M_i_J - Nice looking orky bitz!

@ToD - Get well soon!

This evening I did some more work on my Saxons, but didn't feel much in the mood for painting, so I'm off to kill some mutants in Fallout 4 now.

I'm having trouble posting images in this site. It keeps giving me a message that the image quota has been exceeded or to that effect.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Maybe the picture size?

Some really nice work everyone is sharing and it's very motivational :)

Hosting on imgur or some such is probably the way to go - the board software is pretty bare-bones.

Here are a few things on my painting table currently.

The good old Grom's chariot is getting some paint on it after 15+years of neglect.

And these minis are for an upcoming KS called GreenskinWars fron Knightmare Games in Spain sculpted by the green handed man Kev adams.

After getting back into fantasy gaming and concentrating on 5th edition warhammer, it has really taken me back to the golden age of when GW was the focus of my hobby time both in playing and painting.

The site was set up with some storage space and bandwidth allocated to it, but it filled up pretty quickly. Faced with the options of A) Paying more and more to keep storing pics here and providing bandwidth for delivering them to viewers and B) Farming all that work out to 3rd party sites like Imgur, I went with option B. It's not the most convenient way to do it I suppose, but asking for money to pay for the site isn't really the way I want to do it. As it stands, the running costs are kept quite low and are covered by any profit that I make running events.

Nice work on the chariot.
