Da Warpath: Money Shot

One last update before the first tournament for Da Beach Boyz.

First the promised picture of the entire army on the display board:

One thing I decided to add was a custom turn counter. I really love this figure, and while I don't have a squig herd - I got two of them when buying the squigs for the hoppers, so I couldn't resist having the ng roasting a snotling over a campfire like a marshmallow. The goblin revolves around the campfire to toast him evenly, with the end of his stick pointing to the current turn.

So I head to Origins on Thursday morning, and the tournament is on Saturday.

Da Warpath : With a week to spare

With over a week to spare, I have the army finished. I am now working on the display board:

What, you want to see pics of models, not boring display boards?

Ok, here are pics of the fanatics (i.e. jellyfish, octopus and squid)

And finally finished the arachnarok (lobster).

I want to get a nice shot of the entire army, but that will have to wait for the display board to dry (and for me to touch up the border).

Thanks for all the great support and feedback. I will be premiering the army at 
Origins on June 25th, then they will be at the Buckeye Battles GT on July 9 & 10.

Also, I was just asked to bring the UGPS (the United Greenskin Postal Service ) back to my local store, The Krystal Keep in Kettering OH for display due to popular request, so they will soon be unpacked and back out for everyone to see.

Tried the boar boy banner but it failed :-(, so try again tonight.

Finally built the sail for the BSB - he is almost done (the board is a bit bare right now)

Da Warpath: Lots more done

 got a lot of work done this weekend ( probably because I took Friday off ). I finished the boar boyz and savage orcs (except for the banners), as well as the shaman and general. The BSB is nearly done (waiting for the water effects holding the surfboard to the base to dry). The Octopus and Squid are done, and just still waiting for the water effects on the jellyfish to dry clear (this I sped up by removing the outer shell. I was going to rebuild it, but it popped off clean and is allowing it to dry faster. In addition the arachnarok is almost done. Still need to paint the victim in it's claw.

The last thing now is banners - and I still don't know what to put on the Night Goblins or Boar Boyz banners yet.

Ok, so here are the Savage Orcs:

Da Warpath: tick, tick, tick

It has been a week or so, so I thought I should give an update. Nothing new is finished, but a lot of progress is going on, and the timer is ticking (three weeks as of today).

First, the savage orc boyz working out on muscle beach. I just finished the first highlight on their skin tonight:

Then the savage orc boar boyz riding the jetskis. I'm not real happy with the jetskis so far, so we'll see what I have time to do. The boyz have shading but no highlights. At this point everything is blue-tacked together:

Work on the characters continues - again with the first highlight on the skin.

The general on trike:

The windsurfing BSB:

Also working on the fanatics. The octopus and squid both are shaded:

The jellyfish is slowly drying. The water effects filling theshell should eventually be clear (I hope):

Finally, a couple of WIP of the arachnarok lobster, with and without the howda
