Looks like my "really busy live music March" will be turning into "more time to paint March" as events are bing cancelled all over the UK...

Put me down for painting 18 Mercenary Pikemen. It's a tall ask as my painting has slowed down horrifically since about November last year, but maybe this will motivate me...

More little Laserburn minis...

Scout Car in Colonial Police colours



Glaive APCs (also available in Anti-Grav and Hover versions!)



Imperial Power Armour - the huge phallic weapons are Plasma Guns, the other guys have Assault Power Armour which has two double barrelled lasers and a hand flamer built in



Power Armour Platoon Command Squad - double-barrelled rapid-fire support boltguns for the win!



Going to keep going on these little guys for a bit longer, I'm really not feeling the urge to paint 28mm at the moment!

Next up - some industrial robots,a pile of swappable weapon turrets for the vehicles, and then two more classic vehicles - a Scythe Jetcopter and a Scorpion Assault Lander!

I really like the vintage sci-fi. Is it all from the original Laserburn range?

Yes, all the original range except the small white robot which I think is a Traveller miniature. You can get pretty much all the original 15mm scale range from Alternative Armies.

Got a few more bits to finish off, then a new project for April I think.

Always nice to see those classic Elves  :eusa_clap:

Here's my last offering of the month, probably.

I decided to paint these guys in Space Suits in hi-vis/hazmat yellow as I don't really envisage doing any zero-G scenarios with the models I've got. I think it worked better than I expected?

I never knew what to do with those particular Tabeletop Games guys, back in the day. I wish I had thought of that. Nicely done!

While I am on, i might as well thrown up April's models. A Wood Elf Forest Dragon and rider, and a pair of great eagles, also for the ever growing wood elves.

The shipwreck and graveyard golems look great. How large is the graveyard one?


FWIW, I finished my 10 wardancers plus one extra. Pics to be posted as soon as my entry is published on the OWAC site.


For April I will do what always do in April. Paint giants! To keep going with the wood elves, I will also paint an oldschool ent, which is sort of like a giant for wood elves, I guess. So my lofty goal: 2 giants and 1 ent.

I just measured it ZeroTwentythree. Its 6cm across the front, 7cm deep and 9cm high. The iron gate pieces make it much deeper and taller.

No target for April.

Iím sorry but Iím going to drop out of the Monthly P&S Goals for a bit. This COVID 19 self-isolating thing is getting to me. Normally I wish for more time to model but having 12 hours a day as against the odd half hour here and there isnít working. Iíve a number of other projects (historical research) and other neglected hobbies that I should do something with and will add some variety to my day. Iíve had eye problems in the past so it will also take the strain off them as well.

I wonít stop painting but without the regular store competitions there will be no incentive to finish one unit before starting the next.  Just before they closed the local GW store started a thing they called a Hobby Quest in which you planned to build and paint 10 units, heroes, bits of scenery etc. which is set to run until September 2021. It just so happens that I had 10 items/units in the planning stage for the Apatoa Pahure Pioneers so I signed up for this Quest.

This then is my modelling target for the next year and a half, at the moment some items are just a name, others a sketch or a pile of bits in a box with only one started on its build.

Hopefully the world will have returned to normal before then but until it does - Stay Safe Everyone.

Not on my actual list as posted here, but they were on my much longer hand written list.

Portomaggioran sappers. Not sure about their eyes (I tried a new, more naturalistic way) and I might go back to using 'eye liner' so that they look like I painted them!!!!

The Gaffer


The Diggers


The Carriers

April goals: A Wood Elf forest dragon and a pair of great eagles. 

Happily in March I was able to paint 10 Empire Swirdsmen and a Reiksguard knight. The swords had to match a unit of 15 I painted many moons ago, and the knight had to match a unit I bought painted off BarterTown.  I was able to pull it off!  Pics when I get a chance.

March:
Finished my first 10 Strike Team Fire Warriors for the T'au Sept



Wasn't on my goal list but finished nonetheless
And did the last pieces of work on my 20 Poxwalkers, now with finished bases and rusted weapons



April:
Trying to get the second bunch of 10 fire warriors done and either 1 broadside or a coldstar commander
Plus finishing up 7 Plague Marines (1 already done mostly as a test model, just needs some extra details and base to be done)
Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.
