Energized by the recent activity on the forums, I've decided to start something gemütlich ("hyggeligt" in danish) or just nice in plain english. (Actually english lack the word...).

What am I talking about? I'm talking about posting what we have been up to the last week. That could be priming - at last - that bunch of tactical marines, or basing that squad - that just needed that last touch, or cleaning up the workspace, to make room for future ventures!

A simple picture - in that quality time and space allows - with a simple text to it will suffice. Just let us know what you did, and share the wealth =)

Yesterday I bought this, and assembled it, filed it down and cursed at the missing parts and bubbles:



I will probably never buy a Fail Cast again, but I actually like the mini.

My last week in the hobby has been shockingly productive. I've been trying to use my airbrush to paint faster and have been really motivated to finish models quickly. I still have about 50 half painted models to finish, but I have actually gotten a lot done.

I painted these three terminators primarily with my airbrush and wrote a tutorial on how to do the Imperial Fist model.


I've also got Kranon from Dark Vengeance, some terrain, and 2 chaos hounds half painted. I will put pics up as I finish each.

This week I started several projects, but my main is a new 40k board, which probably will be used as a DS board too.

Here's the 6 pieces of 60x60cm board. Made by 5mm MDF and 50mm foam(thingie):

All I've had time for is starting on my flash git and creating an Orky Plasma Gun. I'll chuck a pic up in the Green Devils thread once it is finished.

Cheers Laney:D

Oooh, colorful!

My week has been a bit nuts. I had an issue with my eye that has now been resolved. It has limited the amount of detail work I can do at the moment.

I painted my canals (finally).


I painted a cultist


I also actually played 2 games of DS with sultansean (sorry, no battle report).

Had a burst blood vessel in my retina. Fortunately I found out today it is not anything more and will not require any surgery. Has made for a bit of a strange few weeks though.

Good to hear your eye is on the mend Narcissus.

I don't have pics yet, but this week I have built an Ork demo expert, an empire mercenary and a beastman bloodbowl player. Next up is a selection of hired guns for the kitbash challenge and my DV Space Marine to finish! (more Orks after that!).


I've also put money I don't have into the Kingdom Death: MONSTER starter (it just looked too good!) and I am seriously considering the Malifaux RPG (especially since I will get the buildings soon!)

Good to hear no surgery is needed! Can imagine you had some rough time while not knowing what to expect.

Would have been lovely to do more but little is better than nothing.

I but some hills on my 40k board and started to "burn out" the sides, and add dirt. The dirt will have to be redone though, as the foamboard shows through...

My first guess is the Reaper Kickstarter. I've got Sedition Wars due in (now) January, plus extras in March and a pile of Reaper stuff coming in March. I think I probably already have 200 models that need to get painted before any of that comes.... Embarassed

I should go take some pictures so I can actually contribute my own progress as well

Cleaned up the garage and set up two 60x60cm tables to play some small scale wh40k campaign we've been working on.

I love that garage. In the background you can see my Dark Eldars being painted... Or you would, if my camera was insane;)

Yeah his guess is 100% correct.
Reaper Mini's though I will likely trade quite a few of them off for stuff I need for DS squads. I know there are some interesting ones in there that could make good DS leader or grunts.
Most of the fantasy ones will be for RPG games though. As well as the giant cthulhu im getting:)

@Komfritten - Wow that is a very cool set up you have there!
@Dysturbed - I missed out on the Reaper kickstarter, but I may well pick up some at a later date.

Agree with Laney: that's an awesome setup!
Think I haven't seen pics of that right table yet though. Can we have more?
Looks like a more "fantasy" table, I am right?
