Giant progress...

Well he's pretty much done to my liking - after some uniform colours and a whole lot of general mould and mud - he's looking like a giant who works pretty hard to catch his dinner!

I still need to work on the base and add some other pieces but as far as the giant himself he is done!
I feel he needs some sort of little diorama? May have to come up with an idea to give my dad for that one - otherwise I know he is working on a large scale haunted style house, I'm wondering if the giant would fit in? Probably a bit big but they are giants after all - and it'll give me an excuse to paint a few more to occupy the dwellings... Who knows!

Progressing the giant

Had another hour with him today and started giving him some fashion sense - I think I'll go with some muddy tatty blood red and purple for what's left of his clothing - he still looks like a new born as washes won't come till last but I'm loving my new little big man!

Giant gains life!

Work in progress but really enjoying painting my giant! Managed to get his flesh and nails painted on - along with his horns and belts, working on his weapon now - cant wait till he's painted and I can start adding some washes to really grubby him up a bit - but for now he is a pleasure to paint!

Creations coming to life

So after my recent post and visit to Warhammer world I've cracked on with some other projects
I still have my vampire counts zombies and skellys to finish off for the gardens that my dad put together but I've fallen fast in love with my new toys below

The Giant was a pleasure to put together - so easy compared to other models and looks fantastic - I think I have a new giant fetish! Spoilt for choice as to how to assemble him
The pictures are of the base sprays done - I have a few bits like dead animals I want to hang from the giants belt but I wanted to paint those before I stuck them down

Isabella has finally been put together and I shall be using warbosstae's tutorial to paint her

And also my new challenge are the fine cast squiggs! Who look great but really will need some time and care to get the best out of them

All in all I'm pretty occupied now for a while!

Drum roll! Gardens of the dead!

So I need to finish up some more army's, but my dad has finished the Gardens and now has pride of place in my hobby room! It does need more population but it's picked up my interest in my figures again because it's starting to look great!

Pics below!

It's alive!

Phew! So it's been a while but I've still had hand in the hobby!

My dad and I visited Warhammer world in Nottingham today - I must admit, as a painter and shopper and not a gamer I was quite unimpressed - dont get me wrong, the figures painted in the cabinets were amazing, and as a gamer I'm sure it's brilliant - but I'd say the 'shop' was no better than my local store for what they had to look at, I know the warehouse is literally just next door but I would have expected more figures to buy on display...never fear though I have some new projects to keep me going....

Can't wait to Get cracking on these bad boys!
