Da Warpath : Snail Mail

Hmmm - picketting could be ok.

I have thought of doing them with seashells as spear tips and shields, which would work, but I've done that before unfortunately with my UGPS:

This is the "Snail Mail" unit. It actually fits the new theme pretty well, I just hate repeating myself.

Da Warpath : Ariel

Well I didn't work on goblins, instead working on the giant. Still needs some more detail - I've just started the tattoo of Flounder on the left side of her belly, and the arms need cleaned up, and maybe more touchup on the face as well. And then a tramp stamp of course.

My 16 year old son is pretty disturbed by this - so I think it is coming along just like it should!

Da Warpath: jumping the shark

a couple more pictures of the sharks:

I've started working on the riders. Once they are painted, then I'll be adding chains as 'bridles' and attach them.

I may need to get a magnifying light - when I look at the pictures they sure don't look as good as I thought they did last night :-)

---------

Once more the sharks - now with riders!

Overall I'm happy with the unit. I completely redid the movement tray so they would rank up a bit better when they did get in combat.

Next up to finish the riders for the spiders and get them completed, plus continual work on the giant (I'm having some problems with the skin tones so far - not used to painting pink skin instead of green :-) ).

Da Warpath: new WIP Pictures

It has been a little bit, but I'm still here. The weather finally warmed up enough that I was able to get out and prime a bunch of stuff - the arachnarok, giant, spider riders, gigantic spider and squig hoppers.

I also picked up some savage orks - about half done converting their weapons to barbells etc. I have a few boar boyz, but I don't expect to get the bikes (to convert to jet ski's) in until late next week (the last auction I need on ebay ends tomorrow).

That leaves the night goblins. Beyond putting snorkels on them I'm not sure what to do. The models just don't have much conversion potential unfortunately.

-------

as promised, so new WIP pictures:

First, the giant. Primed and undercoated flat black, though the flash makes it appear shiny.

And the bare beginning of a Savage Orc Boar Boy - lots of work to be done on the jetski

So time to slap some paint on a few things while I wait for the rest of the boar boy parts to get in from ebay

Da Warpath: Goblin boss on Gigantic Spider

I picked up a tomb scorpion and blister of goblin bosses, so I am finally able to get started on my goblin boss riding Gigantic spider - or Gigantic crab as it may be.

Still needs some more gs work to smooth out the claws, and maybe on the character (who will be either pinned or magnetized so he can be removed).

I've also worked on the giant - lengthening her hair, filling the gap on her arm and smoothing out her, ah, bust. I still need to make the tail bit.

The big shark is getting completely redone - it was just too fat with the squig legs underneath, so I pulled it apart, cut off the legs, put in a brass rod and am rebuilding it. All the squigs will have brass rods to connect to the bases, so they are 'swimming' - and allows me to get rid of the legs that were causing issues.

Guess I need some new pictures of all of these as well :-)

I'm currently bidding on ebay to get ork bikes cheap to convert to jet-skis - I hope I can get them to fit on cav bases.
