Considering their condition the Living Impaired Lads look GREAT! Your bone colors & color choices in general are EXCELLENT. TERRIFIC WORK! thumbsup

That is one SCARY LOOKING Dude(?)! He looks more Deep Water than Swamp, but wherever he winds up, he's going to be the BADDEST Guy in the Hood...brushwork & basing are OUTSTANDING! GREAT WORK! thumbsup

If your still pondering what to do with that big grey spot, I'd go for a brighter contrasting color myself...fuchsia springs to mind. What a Face

Basing on the swamp horror is unfortunately pretty crud (though not totally ruined) the above photo was taken while it was still drying and i've had to apply 4 more layers since and it's formed horrible bubble bits and its soaked into the bit of flocky stuff I had put on into the first layer as reeds, i'm very dissapointed in the water effects stuff I purchased Sad.

Dug out some of my fiance's beastmen from the loft.

I will try and paint some more figs to match at some point, but it may well be beyond my abilities and she hasn't painted anything in years (and as she spent an age painting these I doubt she would volenteer) lol.

There are a couple more shots on the blog.

Too bad The Girl is no longer into painting; she shows quite a bit of talent...& you can tell her so. Brushwork & color choices are OUTSTANDING! VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

I think i might have been able to persude her to carry on at one point, she made a fantastic bit of terrain for Mordheim, brilliantly detailed and painted and after the Mordheim campaign I sold it on eBay expecting it to fetch a fair bit, but it only sold for £10, as she was looking for work at the time I think had it gone for £25 or so she might have been hooked into a hobby that paid, but that idea died with the auction.

Unfortunately I can't find any photos of terrain to show off either Sad.

Cruel Reality has struck down yet another budding talent! Sad
I can identify. For some unknown reason Terrain always draws less $s than the minis...as someone who does both I can attest to this. Suspect

lol! ...heart warming I'm sure...kind of gives an insight into why artists are always pictured as starving to death in some freezing garret. Suspect

I guess the financial climate doesn't help either.

So true. I'm still looking for full-time employment, and my eBay auctions are helping to bring in a little bit each month. Creativity comes in spurts though, and if she gets a taste for painting again, she may come back around! Here's to hoping, since the figs are LOVELY.

Cheers for the comments

Moving onto the next models ready to hit the painting desk, 2 more minion heavy warbeasts, my ironback spitters. I coulden't stand their chin horns, so they came off, also didn't like the pose so they have both been re-posed.

These guys are the only Blindwater heavy so far with ranged attacks, corrosive spit, they are not excellent in game (just OK) but the models are nice enough (without their chin horns lol) and I can use them as big friends of the terrortoise should I ever need them... also I got them both quite heavily discounted which always helps lol.

Update on the Ironbacks.

Photo quality is pretty rubbish, sorry about that, but they are still PiP anyway so a fair distance to go before they are done. More angles on the blog:

You've got two of these babies?! Wow!

Well, this is one of my favourite PP model. I owned for many years two snapping alligator turtles, so I absolutely love these miniatures.

Good to see a sharp paintjob coming along too.

I really like the models you have going on in the blog so many differant cool conversions and I particuarly like the fishmen gang. The Ironbacks are great models and I really like the spot effects on the sides of the tenticled beasty, very well done.

I love the selection of PP stuff you've been using along side the offical GW stuff, it's helped me take off some of the "GW only" blinders in regards to mordheim. A while ago I'd sold off most of my farrow models, I'd unsucessfully been trying to get them to work prior to them getting all the cool new units. You workblog has me considering rebuying a bunch of them to make a pigman gang. (maybe using beatmen rules for the gang).

lol, been considering the same thing myself, would give me something to do with all the Farrow when i'm not playing them (which is most of the time lol). Can't bring myself to convert them away from Hordes use though so I will just make something out of the bone grinders and Slaughterhousers, possibly led by Midas with Targ as one of the heroes, that way there is no converting required, then I might pick up a blister of brigands and convert them for the other heroes.

The Big Shell Guy is turning out to be VERY COOL. Keep up the FINE WORK! thumbsup

The Pig Folk have got me checking out the Minions. There is a definite attraction to them & a lot of the Mercenary stuff. What I'd use them for is another question. clown

I rarely get to play WM or Hordes anymore, but I play pretty much exclusively Minions and Mercs (Searforge (Dwarves)) lol. Those ranges just appeal to me far more than any of the other factions on offer.

I originally got into minions due to the Farrow, but I already had Bog trogs (loved the figs) the Swamp Horror and spitters were calling... and then Rask was released... I had no chance of holding out anymore Sad lol.

Still only painted 6 Farrow models lol....

I can relate; i.e., I have MANY more minis based & primed than I have or may ever have painted. They really look so cool with the dry brushed white over black prime...to the point that it often becomes impossible to think of color schemes for the Little Folk. What a Face

lol, 2/5 of my display cabinet are currently occupied (crammed) with primed miniatures, I don't juse use black though, grey, cream, brown miniatures sitting there, waiting for schemes to pop into my head...

Today for instance, I went to finish the Ironback,s but I wasn't "feeling" it so I stood infront of the cabinet and looked at the hordes of un-painted miniatures, and I eventually picked some things to paint, normally I just stand there get depressed and go and do something else lol....
