Warhammer 7th Edition

  Phase 1 complete!

  With the completion of the Battle of Skull Pass set I have now painted up 3 of the 5 Warhammer Fantasy Battle starter sets. I now have a nice looking Orcs and Goblins army and some Empire, High Elves and Dwarfs to set them against. Since starting my painting challenge I have since bought an Orc Warboss on Wyvern, Giant, and a unit of Black Orcs with command units and Grimgor Ironhide to lead them. I have also picked up one of the new Start Collecting Greenskinz boxes because I wanted some Boar Riders and extra orcs and the box was really good value. I will now be painting my way through these bits and bobs before resuming the challenge with the 5th Edition Herohammer set.

  Night goblins were painted last year, dwarfs just finished. I'm definitely getting better with my brush work.

Warhammer 6th Edition

Taking advantage of the few days of sunlight over the winter season I've finally finished painting up my 6th edition starter set. The orcs were the first models I've ever painted and I was too heavy handed with the undercoat but I think they've still turned out all right. After painting up a heap of goblins I've come back to this set and turned my hand to the troops of the Empire. Choosing a green and yellow colour scheme after the fine city of Norwich and finding that this matched up with the province of Stirland I got stuck in and am very happy with the end results. The second hand set I bought had a bunch of extra figures and although they look impressive ranked up on my craft table it is time for them to be packed away to make room for the Dwarfs of Skull Pass.
