Dwarfs : Zeppelin Ship W I P 2

 A quick update. Second day of playing with glue.
 All pieces that need to be glued are glued , except for the inside of the ship ( cannon , engine , steering column , crows nest & gun turret ).

Next step : filling the gaps with green stuff !

Dwarfs : Zeppelin Ship W I P

 After the fiasco on Saturday I asked Mom miniatures for help & got the answer : Super Glue GEL ! !!
And it works !
I have glued the balloon , the ship to the cloud & both pieces of the ship together & 2 pillars that support the balloon. The balloon isn't glued yet to the pillars and the 2 sides of the ship are also not glued as I want to fit them better together ( little problem caused by my berserk action on Saturday ).

I've set it aside now to dry for 24 hours. Tomorrow I'll glue the other parts in place ( that are seen on the picture ) & I'm almost there !

Paint Table Saturday 227th edition !

Paint Table Saturday 227th edition !
 Welcome to paint table 227 !

I finished the Wildwood rangers this week for the Wood Elves army. 

And now I started on 15 High Elves White Lions. They're the metal version that I bought at Crisis 2017. So far I did the base color + wash for the skin.

I also started on a Daughters of Khaine model : the Sorceress. There will be more of these models to see in the future as I started yet another new army with these models. ( Highly addicted to buying I'm afraid...)

I also started on Typhus for the Death Guards army. This model is the main reason I started this army. I love it , I'm still not sure if I use the smoke with flies. But I can always add them later !
 And here the reason of not posting on Saturday : Mom miniatures Dwarf zeppelin !

Where to start ... I was so excited to order it last year. It was a preorder in March 2017 and it took a serious amount (170 euro) and a  long while to get here at the end of 2017. As always ( with my new stuff ) it gets unpacked , looked , stacked and sometimes forgotten...

And yesterday I felt the need to start this project...
Biggest mistake of my life ! ! ! ( Never have I regretted spending so much money on a model than this one - I'm no longer a fan of Mom miniatures ! )
A full day of trying to glue this thing together with rubber bands ( to keep all in place ) , with fail after fail , etc ... This thing does not fit together what so ever , with gaps as big as a cm , but that didn't stop me. So I started on the hull , glued it together ( all was well ). Then I glued all the supports for the balloon , then glued the balloon. And when I tried and fit it all together , the balloon was to big to fit between the supports for it. I have tried all resources available in my arsenal , but nothing made this thing fit or glue together and stick.
So after 8 hours or so , I went berserk ( Yes like a Dwarf ) and threw the whole damn thing nearly through the window. Got my sanity a little back before I really threw it with great force in the garbage bin and then I really lost it and almost destroyed the model.
 So after I cooled down , I decided not to throw 170 euro's in the bin and got it back out and repaired the whole thing. And luckily all that is still visible from my carnage is one broken shield. That I might repair or leave as is as a reminder of my rage...

Now I've come up with a new plan. And I'll be going shopping in a local hardware store and get me the necessary tools to finish this infernal thing ! 
And hopefully soon it will look like the only model ever built  ( by mom miniatures itself ) minus one broken shield, as far as I know as I can't find anyone else who has.

So that's it for this week.
See you all next week ! For hopefully a more relaxed Paint Table Saturday !

Wood Elves : Wildwood Rangers finished !

I finished the Wildwood Rangers for my Wood Elves army to reinforce my Sylvaneth.
I apologize for the bad pictures but my camera is defect. So I'll have to decide what to do... Buy a new one ( as fixing this one is more expensive ) or use my old one back or use my phone.  
 I've painted them GW style with my own twists and no freehand designs as I'm not that good. 
I'm just a hobby painter , not a pro.
 Left : Champion , Standard-bearer & Musician
Right : regular troops
& a back view with all the different cloaks.

Shadespire : Garrek's Reavers finished !

 Today I finished my Khorne warband for Shadespire. Garrek's Reavers !
I've painted them in the same color-scheme as my other Khorne Reavers.
I was planning to do another color-scheme (like I did with my Stormcast's Eternals) , but I'm very happy I didn't. The thing that separates them from the other Reavers is their base.

Paint Table Saturday 224th edition !

Paint Table Saturday 224th edition !
Welcome to paint table 224 !
This week I painted some mini's of my new Legion of Nagash army : Skeleton warriors , Spirit hosts & Morghast Archai.
 This is what I'm working on now. 5 Bloodreavers from the Shadespire box.
I did some base colors & the washes. Still lots of white and I hope to remedy that very soon...

That was it for this weeks paint table. 
See you all next week for a new episode !

Legion of Nagash : Morghast Archai finished !

Today I finished a Morghast Archai for my Legion of Nagash army.
 I really love these models. They look awesome. I got another one to built and a new box ( with 2 extra models ) underway.
 The blade is painted with Chameleon paints from Green stuff world. The effect is not really visible on the pictures , but it's there. I'll try to make some new pictures later to capture the effect. 
Painted in 2018 : 36

And this is a group picture of the Legion of Nagash so far ...
