About the Project

So I did a project last year ( https://www.beastsofwar.com/project/1469021/?v=edit#snav ) to try and be more productive with all things hobby related. I think it worked. Obviously, playing actual games took a bit of a hit from the pandemic, but the painting side kept going. I got at least 348 minis painted and ready for when gaming starts again. So I'm doing it again.

Needed a change from Napoleonic French. So just grabbed a random blister that was lying around and got it painted. A WW2 Soviet machine gun team. Very basic paint job but I’m happy enough with how it turned out. Might go back and add highlights later.

Shakos and Bayonets arrived this week, so it’s time to get a Napoleonic French force painted up. Rummaging about in the cupboards has yielded a box of 60 Victrix infantry and some Warlord cavalry that I’ve never done anything with.

A lovely sunny day today so I spent it in the garden getting some more trees done.

I’ve got three left to do but I’ll leave them till I get a darker green spray. The only green I’ve got is DeathGuard but using other sprays I got a decent variety of colours.

Found a couple of tree armatures that I’d never finished. Tried dried moss rather than clump foliage.

I definitely prefer them with the moss. Luckily I have a plentiful supply of it on the walls around home.

Late in starting this project, but here we go. The next few posts will be what I’ve done so far this year.

Got the new edition of Bloodbowl for xmas. Two new teams.

The Black Orcs:

The Imperial Nobility:

The Black Orcs were good cos you got different head options and could make 12 different minis. Not these guys; 2 copies each of the six poses. So it’s time for some reposing and head/arm/plume swaps. The ones on the left are the originals.
