I should be adding scales to the dragon - or at least preparing something for the competition, but I just can't stop building more and more zombies...

Finished a Wight King and a mounted Nec yesterday. 3 Minis left to finally have my army completed. 2 Monsters for the extra mile, but I'm done with painting undead.
I know what you mean. I've been playing with undead since 6th edition and now I can proudly say my army is finished, I mean yeah, I have a lot of characters yet to finish but would you say 18 vampires is enough already? :D I paint them for joy mostly anyways nowadays. I will never sell my army or anything, but a change would be nice. Sometimes I wish that I would also be able to flee from and before close combat, and when I watch my grave guard get shot to the ground with Wood Elves' volleys I wish I would be the one aiming the arrow :D Nevertheless, Vampire Counts are still the coolest army for the looks-wise, but the tactic possibilities are quite narrow.

I have actually seriously started to think about 40k 8th edition, that would be a refreshing change for sure!

@Sessioni Yeah, playing the same all over again can be pain in the ass ;) I have my next big project ready in the chamber here, Blood Angels Sir! Will be such a pleasure to paint metal, armour, bigassery weapons, dreadnoughts and so on xD

Personally I'm starting to tire of painting Space Marines. 20 odd on my desk which will take me past 100, I think. I'm looking forward to a diversion with some more fantasy models, soon.

@Borgnine Brilliant! As much as I'm looking forward to seeing that dragon, zombies will still be awesome to see. You've got quite a variety going on so far that I'm wandering what else you'll come up with :)

Finally just started painting the other four Hexxies.

@Theerteen I'm hoping I can squeeze time in for my contest entry. With Gandalf going 2 weeks over schedule, I've kinda pressed myself.

But the Huorns are built and primed as of last night. Gunna hit them hard this week and see how far I get. Still hoping to have them wrapped by October 1st.

Wrapped the Huorns finally (see plog to verify), so now I'm staring down characters for October. 3 hobbits, an elf, and Aragorn. I don't thing I've ever once painted gold. That elf is gunna give me fits.

Well, when they are finally finished it's usually worth the hassle ;) A complete unit is a pretty cool thing

Unfortunately, it's the only way that armies happen!
No, not the only one, but in this case I wanted to say you can paint different models at once. I, for one, prefer to paint squad for squad, but of different models and armies, for assembly line painting begets only clones without souls and passion :)

not it it's a 20/40+ clones :)

Doing some layers on the Terrorgheist. Not quite motivated, but the urge to finish it is immense... after that, only one ghoul king left of my army unpainted.

He certainly appreciates that but models do need love and motivation. View it then as the need to provide your king with a mount :)

In the meantime I've started finally on painting dwarven crew for a cannon. In time no less.

@Theerteen Looking forward to seeing that Terrorgheist. Mentioning ghoul kings brings visions or Adam Barrow's and Borgnine's takes on the kit's King - they've got some cool ones if you're looking for inspiration.

Still slogging my way through those Hexxies, they're coming along alright and I'm hoping to have them done within a week so long as life doesn't get in the way.

Love those new 40k Death Guard releases, they're tempting me to buy yet more kits and do some 40k....

No! Must... Paint... Undead...

@Farmer7574 I had an idea to start collecting Tyranids for 40k, but it passed thankfully - I need to be faithful to undead ;) You just need to wait it out ;) Looking forward to those hexies!

Got cracking on some characters for the Shire finally. Blocking colors, mostly, but the little trousers on the hobbits crack me up. Still not convinced on the gold yet.

Having the sort of week where your last can of black primer runs out halfway through a job... also my car needs a new engine, so I dropped building and painting minis in favour of selling them on ebay to try and raise money towards it...
