This week I have mostly been doing.......

I thought I would add a little update about the things Im working on at the moment.
To start with we have the Characters from my Talion Charter Merc force.
They are all currently half way through laying down the foundation colours. And trying to work out where I want which colours.

Next we have the other Units and my 2 Buccaneer light Jacks

My Vanguard (which is going to be reposed) and my favourite Talion/Privateer model, the Mariner

I have tried my first warjack conversion with the Nomad. I wanted it to look abit more pirate like so replaced the buckler with a metal ships wheel I picked up and the sword has been replaced with a plasticard hilt and a plastic Orge sword. I think its looks good and fits well. What do you think?

All the above models are only pinned to thier bases at the moment because I wanted to do something abit different with them. I have got my hands on a shed load of wooden coffee stirers. After using PVA to create large sheets of wood I can cut bases from I wondered how to paint them. Putting them in before the undercoat wood (sorry) have lost all the grain detail. So I then decided to stain them and add them to the bases as inserts after the minis were painted. I tried a couple of different inks and washes and settled on the 3rd one (shown below)

 Here is the next project. More Blindwater Minions! The bases in there are deep resin bases I got from Fenris in the 3 different Hordes sizes.
Seeing I was going for different bases on the Talion pirates I decided to go for something different on the Gators aswell. With the extra deep bases I had I tried out some swamp bases. Using different types of sand, flock and static grass I came up with the below tests. I know they look a little cloudy but I now know how to make them look better by doing the water in much shallower layers.

There we are.
My current projects. There will be more added to these and also a couple more projects started soon.
Open to all comments, thoughts and ideas.
