Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been blogging as much (but still keeping up on twitter and instagram), but I have been very busy Hobbying away. This is one of the first years where I left Nova, and immediately continued painting. I've also been extremely excited about the orks, and been planning and painting away some of the new units. First up is one of the new Jump Dragsta's!
Welcome back my friends! Bonjour mes amis! Recently returned from a vacation in Paris just in time for Orktober. Thought I'd share my last few models with you!
First off, while doing research on Paris, I met a local online Vermenarque who gave us a ton of tips and advice. We met up with him and had a few drinks at a lovely cafe, and I gave him the first international Trust in Rust ambassador (as much as an ork can be an ambassador!).
Hey everyone! All prepped for Nova! Not too much new this year, other then the GIANT BLUE KNIGHT and the other redone walker...oh and a unit of grots, and a slew of rokkit boyz! That knight really sucked up the hobby time, probably spent around two months on him overall.
Welcome my friends, to another completed post! This one took months and months of time to figure out and get done properly. It's my most complex model to date, with the most modification, and my first time painting blue!
Hey everyone! Had a productive weekend. Was able to finish my last unit of grots, bringing my total to 30. (so I can run 3x10 for 6 CP). I got little movement trays for them as well, so setup and use of them should be pretty simple and quick on the table top. (everyone knows I hate moving infantry models...give me giant bases!)
Hey everyone! Though I haven't been blogging as often, I've been crazy active on twitter and instagram. Trying to figure out a way where I can update all locations at once, so it isn't as much work to constantly ping between them. I might start using the blog for finished pieces, and the recipes for making said pieces, along with major events. Kinda of a repository of where the armies of Greggles is going, and where Greggles has gone! With that being said, I've got some photos of one of the projects I just finished.
Hello my friends! After I last left you off, I had dropped my powershot s110 and broken the lens. It's replacement arrived, so I snagged some photos of the cart before packing it up for Nova! Enjoy!
Welcome my friends! It is done! I've finished my entire painting task list!
And boy am I exhausted! (No seriously, I am spent! That is a LOT to paint!)
Welcome my friends! I hope your wrists haven't been cramping up from all the painting you've been doing! (Mine sure have!). I had a very busy weekend, getting an enormous amount of work done on the ork vehicles. Just a few left and everything is ready for Nova!
First up was the Mega dread. This dread needed some serious work. It had zero metallic blocking done, so took a good few hours just to pick out metallic bits to break up the yellows.
Welcome my friends. Nova is rapidly approaching (it's just next week!), and all the grots and meks have been hard at work in the Greggles household. As I get closer to the end, these posts explode with models, as I'm not really posting all the sweat, beer, and tears wip's that went into them! First up, the new improved Zhardsnark Biker Boss!
Welcome my friends! It's been a great week in the Greggles bunker. Lots of green filled out on the to do list! (pun intended!). Lets jump right to it with the finished weirdboy #2!
I had a lot of fun with this guy. It's basically just a savage ork boss with a cool lightning staff modification. That's about it. I went to town on getting some glowing effects and they seemed to work pretty well for the tabletop!
Welcome my friends. It's been another crazy week in the mek shop, with boyz being finished off left and right...and then another dozen being thrown back on the table to paint. Never ending waagh for sure!
First up, this is a shot of the finished boyz, just to let everyone know I'm just not rephotographing the same ten boyz over and over again :). Today you'll see the finished photos of around thirty boyz (now that they have been varnished, highlighted, and powdered), what I'm currently working on, and some happy surprises!
Welcome back my friends! Yet another week, and yet another batch of orks painted. You'd think I was Mordain7th over there!
First up, the squad of choppa boyz. This brings me up to 40 painted. (20 to go!). I'm having Sophie over at Hobbyistgirl clean them up for me (I don't want to screw up my wrists again this close to the end). Hopefully should have those early next week! Thought part of me has been toying with just running two battle wagons full of boyz, which seem to be hitting just as hard, and really speed up the game. Sharp eyed folks will also notice a gorkamorka nob leading the group! Really pleased with how he came out. The last iteration of paint on him was horrid by comparison :). All these boyz still need to be based, varnished, metallic highlights, and powders. So they will get a few more bits of flare before they are truly done. (I wait till they are on the bases to varnish them, and the bases are on the way!)
Welcome back my friends! Another week, and more orks on the table!
So something happened this week that I never thought would happen. I started listening to everyone and started putting on checks onto some of the shoulder plates. What have I done! Of course I haven't done any white, because I don't have white on the entire army, so most likely going to stick with some sort of metallic checks, just to keep with the overall silver/yellow theme. I know this makes traditionalists squirm, but hey, its orks :).
It really helped on the big choppa nob. That is for sure!
Welcome my friends! Hope you still enjoy ork infantry, because guess what Greggles is painting? That's right, more orks!
In the first shot, is the current 10 choppa boyz I'm working on. Trying to get them to a point for Saturday's game, so I can field as many painted orks as possible vs Dan's AM! This will actually be a streamed game at https://www.twitch.tv/greggles1 around 11 EST! Second photo is the next batch. Everyone is on a little cup now, as it seems to help my wrists enough so I can continue painting!
