Quick Update

Forgot I hadn't posted these pics of the Warriors here yet. Haven't gotten any more done since but hope to get some more painting done today. One more highlight and I'll be moving on to the gold.

As I said I haven't done much painting in the last few days. Most of my painting time occurs when my daughter decides that godforsaken o'clock is the ideal time to wake me up so she can go downstairs and watch Peppa Pig or Teletubbies. Miraculously she's been sleeping through the last few nights so I've not painted anything. Anyway, with the half term, doing papier mache with my son and my nephew was the perfect excuse for me to able to make a start on something I've been wanting to try as well.

Yes, this certainly does continue the trend of rather random pictures of god only knows what!
It's going to be my scenery piece to represent the Herdstone Shard magic item in the Beastmen army. Whilst I like the idea of the item, the idea of burying a rock in the ground doesn't seem half as good as burying a tainted acorn or some such and a chaotic tree sprouting like something out of Jack and the Beanstalk. It'll be based on a cd.
The problem with this whole project though, is I'll probably never use the magic item. My Beastmen are going to be a very mobile army and having to bunker shamans in my deployment zone just seems like suicide.
Anyhow, this is the framework of said tree.

Chaos Warriors w/ Additional Hand Weapons

Not much of a post but I've spent lots more time on the Warriors but haven't gotten very far with them. Seemed to take forever to black their cloaks back so I could start on them. Here's a picture of one now that I've put the first highlight on. Going to blend the darker purple with the highlighted purple a bit more then I'm going to add one more extreme highlight and then I think I'll be leaving the cloaks.

What do you think so far?

Chaos Warriors & Lord Kemen's Tomb

I've made a start on a unit of Chaos Warriors. Not much to look at yet but the picture proves that I am doing something at least!

I decided that since Argider is almost exactly the same to paint as the Warriors I might as well do him at the same time and then when I had one slot spare on the movement tray I figured I'd put Ximun on there as the purple on the Warriors' cloaks will be getting used on his robes. This means two of my Mordheim warband get painted at the same time and seeing as the rest will get painted when I get to the Marauder unit it's all good!

Also, might seem random for now...

From such humble beginnings shall rise Lord Kemen's Tomb! More on this later!
