We'll start off by saying "Happy 4th of July". Yay!!! Okay, now that that's out of the way, on to business.
In my last post I mentioned entering my skaven warp cannon into a local painting competition. Well, I did just that last Saturday and ended up winning the painting challenge for the month of June at the local Games Workshop here in Libertyville and snagged a $15 gift card. Here is a quick picture of the entry.
And no, I didn't come up with the "You Dirty Rats". but I thought it was rather fitting. The next painting challenge for the month of July is free reign to do whatever you want. I picked up a Hellpit Abomination kit, but I'm not sure if I'm going to complete it before the end of the month along with my other project. Too much to paint, so little time.
I also mentioned something in my last post about going back to Lord of the Rings. Well, I've done just that. This isn't going to be a picture heavy post as I just began this project a few days ago.
Those are the figs from the OOP Mines of Moria. I chopped off the slotta part and plastic glued them to closed bases. I also filed down the roughness of Gimil's base so it'll match better with the tomb part. This is actually going to be a gift for my nephew who's birthday is coming up in a few days. My two niece's birthdays are next month (Aug.), so I have until then to complete this project. I might toss a few WIP updates here and there, but I'll definately post the finished product when it's done. This picture was taken a few days ago, and I've done a little work on this project at the current time. So far, I have Legolas complete and Gandalf about 80% complete. Keep tuned to see more of this. Thanks for looking...
