With these two squads I have now painted the whole Chaos Army! I will get a photo of the whole lot soon, but for now enjoy some gobbos and chaos warriors.
I haven’t really been anywhere, I’ve been painting plenty of things, but somehow never got around to taking photos and putting them up here… poor blogging form.
Still working my way through the Battlemasters pile. Once these models are all painted there will be two fine armies, although I might need to go back to the beginning and repaint some of the early figures! I’ve improved gradually over the years and I expect some of the first BM minis I painted will look even more amateurish than my usual output! If that ever happens I will of course take some bad photos of the armies!
Battlemasters is a fine game, but there really are a lot of miniatures to paint. I think that this is possibly its biggest failing. The miniatures themselves are pretty basic, but that was about right for the time. But there are so many of them! I have painted loads and yet there are loads left to do… Will I ever finish?
Another couple of Battle Masters squads painted up. I tried to do these as quickly as I could without making a complete hash of them. I was amused to note that the previous owner had stuck the flag sticker on upside down. I think we all did that now and again. Despite being forty years old and following the instructions, I still manage to fuck it up building these bloody things. I snapped a trailing bit off a nurgle guy a few weeks ago. I completely fucked up the eagle-on-antenna bit of the Death Watch biker marine, and have glued the wrong bits onto a genestealer hybrid more than once recently. An upside down flag is nothing to me!
It’s been a while since I’ve completed anything I’ve liked enough to post here, but I’m happy enough with this. I think the horse is better than the rider, I enjoyed learning to do the horse. I’ve never been happy with any horses before but this time I looked at a How To Paint Horses from an old White Dwarf and this is the result.
