Varg and ZOgre

Varghulf base is done!! I had previously done the cork and broken statue but hadn't bothered to finish the rest of the base. That has been taken care of. I really like how he turned out, but I REALLY need to matt coat him because every time I touch him to move him I seem to rub some paint off from somewhere. Maybe he needs to be replaced with a resin version?

The Zombie Ogre didnt come out very clearly. This is too bad, because I really do love him. Please take careful note of his missing lower Jaw!! The extra pictures I included in this post also show the large cleaver you can just see over his left shoulder. OUCH!
The big difference between this one and the last is the first wash. Last one was a devlan wash, this guy started with a thraka green wash. I was pretty unhappy with how green he was at first, but he grows on you, the loveable lug!!

Braaainss for Big Guy

This hungry fella was sitting around in my bits box along with a couple more and screamed "BRAINS!!" to me. One rubber arm later, a new zombie is filling the ranks. He is primarily Devlan mud washes over base colors, other than the metal areas where I also used some of the Forgeworld weathering powders.

The base is meant to go along with all the new bases I am putting together for my vampire counts army. 

 The arrows are meant to show why he is undead. The skin colors had me worried, because I have seen several peoples Ogre Kingdom armies, where the Ogres have greenish skin tones. Hopefully he looks dead, especially walking alongside all his smaller human sized companions.

Dead Base

I have a lot of undead. None of them have bases though, so to take a break from some elves, I have started to base my undead army. It will be a slow process, but when done will look good. Let me know what you think.

babies make for bad hobby

My quest to complete my high-elves came to a screeching halt the other day when my wife woke me up with a "its time" one liner. We got to the hospital bright and shinny and had a brand new baby girl by late and dusky.
Are those elves for me? Cool!!
I did manage to do some damage on the elves before I was "side-tracked". I went with six E. Reavers and some sword masters to make up the difference. Both have decent amounts of paint on them and wont take long to finish if/when I get the time to work on them.
8 Swordmasters

So, as most of you can guess the posts will become a bit less regular (not that that was happening lately) and might include more of my older models that have gone un-noticed on the blog or the painting/gaming table.
