So, I’m done. It’s 2 days before Northstar and I’m done. It was a ton of stuff to do, and I needed some help in the end, but it’s all done. Let’s take a final look, shall we? Characters: Grimgor, NG Warboss, NG BSB, NG Shaman (The version of the list I…

WIP: Garfy’s Orc Armies on Parade Board #12

Posted on October 23rd, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

I’m so pleased I didn’t have to buy paint for this project. I also had plenty of spare flock so I didn’t have to buy that either. So far this project has cost me nearly £70. The paint and flock would have pushed it closer to £100. This doesn’t even i…

Lots of paint on this update. I dug out my old Vallejo paint (I’m a Citadel paint fan nowadays) so I used up all my old browns. I bought some large synthetic water colour brushes to speed up painting the fort. It’s a combination of painting, dry b…

It’s been a full week since my last update, what progress have I made?Well I had to admit defeat last night and call in the big gunz (aka my wife) to help with a few tasks while I finish up the painting. She’s already flocked most of the bases, added a…

With the Orctress finally built, it’s time to detail the board. Learn what I used to detail the foamcoare with after the jump. 

That’s right, plaster cloth. This is the stuff doctors wrap broken limbs up with and your friends sign your ca…

This kit has been haunting me from the shelf of shame for a couple of months now. It’s big, I think I’ve never painted anything that large and detailed in the same time.. I’m having fun with it but it is intimidating – initial airbrush work went pretty…

Finally some progress on these has been made. I don’t think I really like these models much but as I paint them and assemble the regiment they are starting to grow on me. Though I think everyone experiences that as they paint the large regiments in …

I'm using Balsa wood to clad my Gorktress Walls to make it look like a timber structure. Orcs aren't known for their neatness so odd sized, mis-matched pieces are perfect. Read on to see how I added texture to the Balsa Wood. More after the ju…

While I should have been painting some Spider Riders I instead got distracted with the Battle for Skull Pass Shaman. I don’t have much painting time, less than the last time I made the same complaint but I am making some very slow progress on this arm…

Are you ready?

You don’t look ready…Just some parts in a box here at work…I’m not ready. Northstar is only a few weeks away (23 days), and up until 10 days ago, I had no painted models for this army, and not many models even assembled. The list isn’t finalized qu…

With the concept decided on, it’s time for the all important “dry fit”. Will the army actually fit on the board and where will I actually position the models. I’ve cut the boards to size and added some small raised areas. I’ve also constructed a tower …

I’ve been a bit slack (I say that a lot) on the blog front over the past few months. Between work, home, hobby time… and some World of Tanks I have found it difficult to get act together. Hopefully over the next few weeks I am going to get caught up …

So here he is, the Oldhammer Goblin also known as BOYLdrick ! This is actually one of the first goblins I've ever painted (if I don't count the 2nd ed gretchin I painted last year for Orctober). And what better starting point than a model by th…
