Slater's Project Log.
« on: September 07, 2010, 04:53:49 PM »
High time, innit?  Lately I haven't been painting, just assembling like crazy.  It's time however to get my house in order, and a big part of that is just getting the armies together and primed, put into cabinets, etc., and working on some units.

After Von Koss and others have really rocked our boards, I thought I'd show my appreciation for their inspiring efforts and start to post at least some forward progress.

It's been a busy summer, and fall looks that way too, but pics will be coming.  I tried to load the Ogre Elite proxy pics tonight, but photobucket was unresponsive. 
'Guess that's what the work computer is for!!

Stay tuned.

I'm lookin' forward to it. I love seeing other perspectives on models and colour schemes and I know you won't disappoint.

If you need more options for free photo sharing, there's always Flickr.com (yahoo) and picasa (Google/Gmail)

I pinned and glued seven more Horned Ones Spearmen.  One more box of seven to go!!  Then it's the Axe Horns, and the Legion.  Got the Totems assembled years ago.  

After they are primed, it's time to start the painting.  I also have a monstrous Stygian and Swamp Goblin collection to get going on.

I've hit what I like to call the point of absurdity.  I can't bring myself to sell off models, as I've already parted with some and miss them already!!

Thanks for the nod in my direction Josh, but truth be told...I would not have had the inspiration to paint up my Chronopia collection if it were not you and other members on  the Forum with all the battle report photos and general topics on army selection.  Really I was just trying to give back to you guys and contribute a little...but enough of all this yayayayay...

Show us a painted army worthy of Kronos!!!!     :D

Knowing Josh - these will turn out great.
Always look out for number one, but don't step in number two.

Pics are coming.  Today it feels like a gnome is in my head pushing at the back of my right eyeball!!  Sore eyes from painting coupled with insane allergies this time. 

I know, no excuses!!

Hey you...I need to see awesome pictures of painted Sons of Kronos.

I've been away for a while and it's made me grumpy so just pick up that paint brush and do it like this...
