Hi All,Been super busy the last 10 days or so. Saw the new Halloween movie with the kids, we loved it. Ate a pretzel the size of my head for Oktoberfest and went to a Badminton lesson with my daughter.In the mean time I did finish the Umber Hulks/Ambulls. The varnish was acting weird, and I kept finding tiny spots that were missed. Finally I just gave in and called them done.So here they are. After three times painting varnish on I'm leaving the shiny spots.For fun I put them around Ape force, which was finished earlier. I submitted all of them to the OWAC Sprint challenge. No real reason, just because I could.I then thought it might be nice to do an ape family portrait.Thanks for looking and commenting.
Hi All,Late again for Saturday, but it's been a busy week. The boy had a band performance during the week, then played with the High School band during halftime at the Football game. Then we ran a Cross Country race in the pouring rain Saturday morning.I've gotten several layers of drybrushing on the Umber Hulks. It's not looking quite where I want it, but I'm not going to worry about things too much.I also got the Olley Dwarf Brewmeister on his base and used a spot of Squadron Green Putty to try and cover the mold line in his tankard.I've since filed the putty down and added sand paste and grit to the base. Should get the paint on him this week.Welcome to Dave Brewster, if you have a blog let me know and I'll link to it. I'm guessing you may be the daveb that commented on the RoC post.As always, thanks for reading and commenting.
Hi All,Primed the Umber Hulks with craft paint and brushed it on. If I added water to thin the paint it would bead on the plastic. So it took a long time to get good coverage on each model. I still have to go back in with a small brush and hit all the little spots that somehow didn't get paint in them.I intend for these to be rough drybrush along the theme of the other monsters I did, so not the exact color as the Knightmare Ambulls. We'll see how it goes, I have to look back at those posts to remind myself of the paints used.Thanks for looking and commenting.
Hi All,Busy week, or so it seemed. I have a lot on my mind I want to share, but the days seem to get away from me as far as writing things up and sharing them.First cross country meet of the season today. My son and two of his female team mates competed today. It was hot but they all had great runs.On to the minis. First, earlier in the week I finished those Eureka armed Gibbons.I'm happy with how they turned out, even if I did do the walnut paint wash on the fur of a couple of them too dark.Next, on the D&D Umber Hulks, I was able to use putty to fill in a few gaps that were bothering me and glue and spackle them on their bases. I am still hopeful I can finish their ground work and get them primed this weekend.Hopefully I can also get these next couple of blog posts out and release the Oldhammer in the New World Zine so that I can get on the next one to help get us fired up for 2019.Thanks for looking and commenting.
Hi All,I wanted to start today's post by welcoming Remco to the blog. I usually leave the welcomes for last and almost always forget. Your name is very familiar, but I can't seem to think of your blog. Blogger profiles don't seem to include that any more.On to the projects.Finally broke out those Nozulr's Umber Hulks I ordered from miniature market. I'm going to paint them up for the Ambull Safari. Still need to work out some kinks in the scenario.While I was photographing the Umber Hulks, this cardboard river section looked back at me accusingly. You may recall I had started these back circa 1990 and then restarted them a relatively short while ago. Gamer ADD is a struggle.Last night my son and I were looking at the WFB 3rd Ed rule book and Slaves to Darkness. He stopped on the Mighty Fortress picture in 3rd Ed again, reminding me we are supposed to play a siege. I want to take some measurements of the pieces to try and make additional sections to match. It may be beyond my skill set.In blogging news, you ma
