Jeff's completed projects 2017

Starting off the new year with some Midhammer chaos hounds and a baggage cart I've had for ages. He's a human, but the color scheme I've used should let him blend in with my wood elf army too. (So that's two baggage trains started. :D )
As before I won't promise that this thread will all be "glorious old lead" but it will be related to my oldhammer gaming (So, no pictures of my guild ball team, but you might see the age of sigmar bloodreavers that I've decided will work nicely as Chaos Thugs. ;) Well, if I ever get them painted... :roll: )

Wow, what a busy year this has been so far. Work related travel and at sea time have resulted in a severe shortage in painting time. (I've also managed to get distracted by runewars (more accessible for the younger gamers, and the new blood bowl, since I missed it the first time around) Things seem to be calming down, and I'm looking forward to getting more painting done going forward, and and already pondering what I'm going to paint for Orctober.

I've managed to finish a model, a Kickstarter chaos warrior, and an old disk. Put a lot more into the base for this one than I typically do. Hoped to create a sense of him zooming trough the chaos wastes.

Re: Jeff's completed projects 2017

I'm actually finally managing to get some painting done. A bit of a minotaur glut on this one. I had the good fortune to play a couple of 3rd edition games recently. The scenario we'd set up had the Empire building in a place sacred (profane?) to Chaos, so that drove me to minotaurs as they're guardians of such in the fluff. This was the motivation I needed to try to get the rest of the Minotuars in my collection painted...somewhere along the line I acquired a bunch of the warhammer quest minotuars, so they feature prominently, but I'll start off with the metal ones, two GW and a the third I think is Ral Partha.

Added wagon wheel shields to some to create some variety, and swiped a banner pole from some ungor to create a standard bearer.

I also finished up two more chaos hounds for the unit I started earlier in the year.

I've another game coming up in a few weeks, and am attempting to paint up some battleforge halflings to support my Empire army, we'll see how it goes - 30 miniatures in 14 days doesn't sound completely unreasonable....

Re: Jeff's completed projects 2017

Thanks!
They've got me wondering if I should rework and rebase the other half dozen I painted over a decade ago...I think I'm leaving well enough alone for now....but, I'm still thinking about it.

Great thread. I've only now noticed a connection between the Union Jack and the 8 pointed star of chaos, courtesy of the Minotaur's belt buckle. :o
