Projects On The Go

Plenty on the go at the moment.  Just a quick summing up.

Progressing quite nicely.  Having completed all but three of the ships (Heldenhammer, Bloody Reaver and Flaming Scimitar) I decided to take a break and start on the scenery pieces.  Have currently finished all the rock work and now need to paint up the details and the water on them.  Quite happy with the results.

Mighty Fortress
I managed to get this item immediately prior to the latest price hike, and thought it would complement the new Blood in the Badlands Siege rules I purchased.  Finally finished assembling it last night, along with a bit of custom battle damage on one of the towers.  Just need to undercoat it, base coat and drybrush - should be a quick process with the new airbrush and hoping to finish it tonight.

Mighty Empires
Bagged two sets from ebay for next to nothing and currently contemplating how to paint them.  Got a few ideas but this project is currently on the back burner.

Wood Elves
The missus has asked me to help her finally complete the painting of her Wood Elves army - I think she was embarrassed because even the kids had managed to complete theirs.  I'm working this weekend so won't get to start them until the next weekend but everything has been under coated so should be able to zip through the few units she has left.

Warriors of Chaos
Still got a few models to finish painting - A sorcerer (2 actually), Lord, and a bunch of marauders (who are half done).

Also inspired by a picture in the new Battle in the Badlands book I am planing to scratch build a watch/bell tower.  Got some plans in my head which I hope to put on paper.  Just ordered some materials for it - notably brick effect plasticard, from a new on-line shop I discovered - www.anticsonline.co.uk.  Great place with loads of cheap materials and even discounted Games Workshop items.  Added to my favourites!

I spent most of last weekend clearing out the garage and when complete I ended up with a massive space - thinking of maybe building a hobby station and war game table in there - still undecided.  Can't decide whether to build a set of legs for my current base board or just to order a couple of folding tables to sit it on.

This post was just intended to be a quick update - as well as a place for me to keep track of what I have on the go.  Will post some more specific details - with pics - later.
