Thank you.

Actually I recall you being quite the speed painter when you wanted to be. A post several years ago regarding I think Night Goblins comes to mind.

Re: The Glass Cabinet Club 200 (painting support group)

What if I miss a month? Real life gets in the way sometimes for us all, or we get tired of our toys, or something distracts us. No problem. You can take a break for 2 of the 12 months, either make up your losses in super productive subsequent months, or scale back your end of year target to a 2000 ...

Re: Opinions on treeman wanted

Nice looking wood-skin effect deng_ham. For your army, this is what I think i'd try: you already own the old metal one, so that works for budget. Get a razor saw and cut him across the waist. drill in, give him about 3 inches more height, fill in with a mix of green stuff/miliput for strength & ...

Re: Burn the Witch! Empire army blog (pic heavy) - Feb 12 update

Absolutely awesome army in the making! Attention to detail in the varying conversions is great and that alter is stunning and so in theme with the army as a whole. Very atmospheric paint style too.
Very cool rag-tag detachments.

Great job- especially on the head mechanic- really brought out the character in his face. Agreed, but that applies to Yuri and the Underboss as well, really great stuff.

Re: Just when I was starting to like this plastic thing.....

That's a reasonable point on the artisanship, but there are plenty of sculptors about at the moment, probably more than there has ever been. It seems a new company sets up every fortnight!
