Makin headway....

Fluffy those knights are now 99% done. I need to detail the horses for you, and then go back and do a quick clean up on the reds to finish. I will hopefully have them in the shop display case held for you in the next 7 days.

SOOO far behind

Well Life has been crazy. I took the kids to Disney, blew a fortune on bottled water and had an absolute blast doing it! Unfortunately it has taken a toll on poor Mike waiting on his Vampire Bloodknights...well 3 more are done and I'm down to 3 to go.

Once I get to this point in a project I would normally be saying "hey, you are ALMOST done, why not push to the end and get it done?"....Well as usual it isn't that simple. I am working with some other great guys at Origins game fair this coming weekend. That will blow another week as I furiusly work to get terrain assembled and painted for those games. That said I have still been making slow progress and I have only final detail and highlight left to do on 6 of the knights.

I'm ALMOST there. Please be patient with me Mike. I do apologize, I know you are itching to get these guys on the table. My new (self imposed) deadline on them is July 4th weekend so I can get them off my desk and start work on the Volscani....all 180 of them.....and the WHFB campaign, and WHFB tournament, and the 40k World Wide war prep, and the.....oh heck you get the idea....

Armoury Games Open Painting Competition

I am going to be holding an open painting competition at Armoury Games for you guys and gals. This will be an open competition, meaning no specific game system, no size requirements, and no restrictions on unit type.

This means anything from a single 25mm D+D model, to a baneblade or giant dragon from confrontation. You can do a unit of FOW tanks on a diorama base (no bigger than 12"x12" base please) or a battle scene or challenges....the possibilities are endless. Basically be reasonable with the size of your entry, pick a mini and get painting!!

Entry fee is $10 (to cover prize support)
Entry must be submitted to Bruce at the Armoury by no later than August 1st.
Entries will be displayed in the case at the Armoury until August 15th for the judging at 1pm.
Prize support for this will vary depending on the number of entrants, so everyone get painting!!!

Contact me here with a comment with questions, or Bruce at the Armoury at 614-833-1331 to get registered.

VC WIP preview

Well I like the models but....

Well, I am not going to get those blood knights finished before vacation like I had hoped. There is just too much detail.....besides, I can't bear to not do them justice for the cost of the models.

Here are a few details from the unit champion. He is farther along tan the others, and should be done before I leave, but the others are waiting in line now. I hope to have them completed in a few weeks after I return from our family trip.
