Lucius Lupo - Venator Leader


'Long time coming' doesn't even begin to describe the process behind that model. The conversion dates back to January 2014, I've tried many sources and ways to come up with a solution to do this head and it's only a month or so ago I finally got an actual answer !
But what was I trying to achieve some of you may wonder ?

Metal Slug - What a tanker !


BRRRRR, PAOWWW PAOWW, KABOOM KABOOM PFRRRRRRRT !
Oh yes, you got it, this is time for the real deal now ! BOYL is coming and with it plenty of new fun games to test with the lads. Amongst those, Our friend Colin has offered to prepare a game of What a tanker ! Cool ! 
What do I need ?
A tank ! No kidding !
Well I don't usually paint tanks so when I do I want to tick some lines off the to do list and I had the perfect idea for that !

Growing in the 80's and 90's comes with a truckload of cultural references you just cannot escape and amongst those, a fondness for small burly tanks had emerged.

Slanns in Spaaace - Ribbit and Rock it !


There are some prejudices you just have to embrace, and what can I say about frogs apart from the fact I love them ?
It's been exactly 6 months since I last painted a giant frog from the future and those guys above were actually started at the very same time...
So what happened ? Well, for starters I think I was a little ambitious when I decided to paint 14 models in a single batch, especially with that many colours (something I never ever do really). You can also add the fact that I engaged in a stupid number of hobby comitments and that midway through painting I had another idea to paint them which would have meant stripping them all and starting back from 0 when I had spent quite some time on the skins...

Yolandai - Nomad Boss Lady


Coming out of nowhere, here's another model that just jumped to the top of the paint queue in the blink of an eye. 
Like the other years, I wanted to take part in Morikun's painting competition and I therefore needed a female model to paint since the theme of the competition is to paint an image of what his wife could be like in our fantasy worlds.
Like many of you, I do have plenty of female figures to paint but I had just received one which for some reason made a lot of sense. I actually had the very best idea when the comp started but I totally forgot what it was. You can be sure I'll remember as soon as it ends.

Warhammer underwolds Shadespire - Ironskull's Boyz


Sometimes you do things you never thought you'd do. I never thought I'd paint anything related to Age of Sigmar, and here I am with my 3rd band belonging in it. I never thought I'd get the orruks for Shadespire, but here I am.
I didn't like the way they looked, didn't like the way I could hardly tell them apart, I didn't like the look of them.
But some things just happen, in my case, it was going to meet my dear friend Sho3box and playing Shadespire with him, facing his orruks with my Stormcast.

Caryatids - Hive angels or demons


Every new release for Necromunda seems to be aimed directly at me. I guess I'm either someone super important or more likely we live in an age where people like me have the chance to be targeted right at their weak spots in the entertaining industry.
And I have to confess amongst many others, one of my weak spots is naked blue winged mutant babies... That's just how I roll.
Now I'm ashamed it took me that long to get this one painted honestly but I will probably come up with excuses if I have to.
Now this one was even better since it was a freebie from the latest Colony 87 KS so it was a shame not to have it painted really !

Papa was a rolling unclean one - Rogue trader Great Unclean One


And just to finish this first tale of several gamers, here's a Greater demon of Nurgle with a Rogue Trader twist !
Having already painted a Bloodthirster and a Keeper of Secrets I still had 2 left to paint to complete my pantheon so I thought painting the fat papa would be cool to go with the palanquin I had just finished !

Pimple my ride - Nurgle Palanquin for Rogue Trader


Hi there, I'm in the final steps of my tale of several gamers so still trying to finish as much as I can for my Chaos renegades. I've only realized last month I haven't painted a single character in this challenge and thought I could use some leadership. Now of course I couldn't settle on something simple could I ?
And that's how I remembered I had this Nurgle Palanquin with no less than 3 potential riders, all fitted with Magnets !
Best part of which being one is pretty neutral and could be your regular undivided chaos lord.

Since I didn't have enough corks to put the riders on, I had the best idea in the world (aka worst idea ever, don't do this at home) and pinned all three on the same cork !
