Sorry for the lack of posts. It has not been due to lack of hobby, I've been nose to the grindstone getting things ready for Adepticon. Over the last week the focus has been mainly on my pirate sea monster force. I've also done some odds and ends on Dark Eldar. Here's the completed shot of Nessy (proxy for a dwarf gyrocopter
Here are some more shots of the pirates I'm getting done. Two war machine crews and more "thunderers". Just looking at these photos reminds me I probably should go back and paint the eyes if I have time!
My teammate, Dan assembled the ships from Ainsty Castings. The masts are not permanent and we'll be blue tacking them in (that's why they're on weird angles). Unfortunately I'll have to paint them a lively lighter brown instead of a true weathered dark wood look like ships should probably look. I based my miniatures a little too "cartoony".
I also painted up the pain token dice holders. Here's a few as an example. The one box of zombie parts made up 20 holders! We also based up the vehicle wrecked templates, I need to sand them and get them painted.
I'm really looking forward to putting paint on them but I'm running out of time! Here's what is left on the Adepticon to-do list. One week remaining! Argh!
