Well last night was strictly Spinespur painting, but Chronopia is coming along as at least things are assembled and primed.  After Wednesday's zero productivity, it feels good to get on a roll again.  Veez's Warzone contest will actually be my first Warzone model I ever paint, so I'm looking forward to seeing what I can get done by March.  Deathly ill today.  Hopefully the weekend will see some progress.

I think a good portion of us are sick. I have been under the weather for 3 or 4 days now. Andy, Josh and BgNasty are on the sick list too. Anyone else?

I painted last year ~ 200 figures. Chronopia ~100.
I planned for 2008 to paint ~100 figures.
They are 3 armies:
- Stygian = 36 figures
- Dark Tusk Dwarven = 29 figures
- Devout = 29 figures or Swamp Goblins = 47 fiigures

But, in the next weeks i didn't have time for paint. I hope in the next months i maked my first works.

Paintexample: My first Stygian (painted last year)


greetings,

Coki

Still deathly ill.  Assembled/converted one, count'em one model in the last week of Demnogonis plague.  'Just returned to the office today.  Hopefully I can get back to anything besides sleeping and coughing up necromutant phlegm.

This sucks.

More work.  Dark Tusk Dwarves starting as brown blobs of Vallejo Tinny Tin.
The model on the left is where they are all starting.  The one on the right has been doctored with GW foundation mechrite red, and Reaper master series leather white.  Two colors and they're already beginning to pop.

Sweetness.  Nice to see them coming along!

And a belated shout out to Coki on one fantastic looking Stygian!

Thanks for the feedback Veez.  I posted my unfinished Warzone model as a public apology to you for being such a schmuck and not finishing him on time for your contest.

The Wolf Clan Scouts are my models for your Chronopia painting event.

Keep up the good work, as you are motivating all of us.

 Musician with Horn of Darkness
 Leader

 Greatswordsmen x 8
 Standard Bearer with Standard of Striking
 Leader

 Cursed x 8

 Darkeye's x 8

 Total points for this little lot =1684

 Not sure as to when I will get to put paint to these yet.But I do hope to have some sorted to showoff soon.I still have more to sort out.Need to find out where I have hid them all.

 How has everyone else done with thier projects and targets?

Abysmal!!  I did finish, except for the basing, and actual character model conversion I'm using in a Sunday Savage Worlds game.  I've assemble so many models I've lost count, but the painting is at glacier speed.  I will be posting pics before the year is out however.  I need all the help I can get.
