This weekend also sees my in-laws in town, for our pre-Christmas celebration with them before we have our separate ones next week. Nice seeing the nephew and niece and getting the cousins together for playing and general mischief. As part of our gift exchange, got a lightbox (woot) that I'm starting to play with (results below!), as well as the DVD set for Tales of the Gold Monkey, a fun show that I loved as a kid when it was on, and probably helped spark my loves for pulp adventure and flying boats.
Late over the last few nights I managed to get more painting done on the Ogryn and hit them with washes.
So far Kantor Fett (first from the right in first pic) is the only one of these "gentlemen" claimed so far; the rest are still up for grabs! As a reminder I'm soliciting names for the various Scythiak from my beloved readers, so if there's someone who catches your fancy, let me know. The initial post along with most of the figs (before painting) is HERE and there's a couple of updates with the few that have been taken so far HERE 2 and HERE 3.
Group Ogryn shot including the squad leader, Killgore:
|Thirty wounds of pain!|
I also got my wife to remind me of how to set the camera for more depth shots, and with the aid of the mini tripod took a shot of the techno-barbarians so far all together (including the spawn riders and Khonan):
Next up are probably the Rough Riders, while I'm still in techno-barbarian mode. Then the cultists, psykers, and company command/Astrakenor. I still need to build some vehicles, but it will be a while before it's warm enough to prime them anyways. Maybe next week during the Gold Monkey Marathon I can get a bunch of painting in!
Not sure if I'll get any more posts in this week or not. Probably will, but just in case - Merry Christmas and best wishes for everyone.
