I'm still painting more recruits for my renegade army and this month, I thought I could add some of the Slaaneshi. After all, I've already spent some time on Slaanesh this past year so it was time for me to get the marines done !
And since I had to paint 400 points I thought I could just as well add that Dreadnought I unboxed a while ago...

So this week I had the chance to get a few models from the Circus of Corruption Kickstarter by Oldschool Miniatures in the mailbox !
You might have seen it around but if you haven't I advise you to go have a look at it :

Something a little different for us today, something I don't do enough but I had the perfect occasion and targets to do so this time : scenery.
The excellent Chris from Fogou Models has offered a couple of friends and myself the possibility to paint some of his upcoming models and I have to say after painting the brilliant shacks he had done earlier, I was more than excited to put my brushes on more of his work !

Well Necromunda doesn't stop to inspire many of us and I've found it to be the perfect excuse to go back and dwell in the leadpile to find old projects that could be good to tick off the list !
Ash waste nomads were exactly that !
As you may have noticed, I have a very deep fondness for Confrontation (Necromunda's ancestor) and I have to say having a gang of each entry in the game would be quite of an achievement for me. ^^
Two opportunities have made the Ash waste nomads climb to the top of the painting queue : Necromunda and Dracula's America.
What's the link with Dracula ?
I'm going to tell you.

So this is March, month of Mars, like in the God. So what better month to paint titans ? None, that's right.
Now I've had the will to paint in a different scale for quite a while but like all the good plans and bright ideas, I've always postponed it because of better newer projects.

Soooooo, still working on my "tale of several gamers" entry for March, I've managed to paint something easier. Since We're supposed to paint 400pts a month and I have painted 1100 in 2 I thought I could use the spare points and make March an easier month with about 250 pts worth of Demonic lust. ^^

Hey, you might remember the six sinners from earlier, well; I've been meaning to upgrade the team from quite some time now but was looking at how to do it right. The arrival of the new Necromunda was the right trigger for this for 2 reasons :- The magnificent Escher models in the box
- The upcoming chaos cult list in WD.
Oh yes, chaos cults in the underhive, that's how groovy it's going to get.

See that imperial look, that nobility and the high standard of moral values Karl Franz embodies ? Of course you don't. Nothing here to see but inch think layers of hard enamels and gruesome gore effects... URGH...
But hey ! What's the matter, all we need is a good seesion at the strip club. We'll show those enamels (with Vincent Price's voice) the evil of the strrripper !
Now it had been a while since I last had a model so poorly painted to strip. Like 5 years ago actually. I'm going to show some models I've stripped before, just to attest (did I need to prove anything ?) that I'm not exactly new in stripping town.

It took me a while after Steelheart's champions but I finally managed to paint the second half of my box of Shadespire !
To be honest, this is the first time I paint all the models from a single box so that's quite an achievement ticked !
Just like for the Stormcast, painting the Reavers proved to be quite more challenging than expected due to my muscle memory being entirely focused on painting old lead.

I suppose it's hard to let squats go so I recently got another one from Old School Miniatures. Now Jamie over at Oldschool Miniatures has commissioned the ever talented John Pickford to sculpt a model of the company's mascot Eric.

OK, let's start with the appropriate soundtrack shall we ? The 8 Horsemen of the Apocalypse deserve as much. ^^
Ok now, following my plans to have a sizeable chaos renegade army for Rogue Trader this year, I've taken some old models from the shelves. WHen I say old, I don't only mean the model themselves are old but the conversion are too !

Last Christmas, I gave you my hear... no no no wait, sorry. Last Christmas a group of friends I have the pleasure to be part of have decided to have a little secret Santa amongst us with the very simple aim to each give and get a surprise model we'd paint in the following month !
Everybody loves surprise models right ?

With the release of the new Necromunda, I guess it's pretty safe to say many of us are all excited about either coming up with a new band or updating an old one. I'm not fond of hard choices so I've decided to do both actually. The easiest part though was to update my scavvies since I just had a few new models to add.

Everyone loves a good inquisitor right ? Yeah me too. And what I love even more than that is Jes Goodwin models, I just love 'em. They're my hobby happy place.
NowI've painted a variant of that model before but I was given this guy to paint for a friend so gladly came back to him.

Great news ! I've recently painted a bunch of space dwarves a bit before their release. Well I'm glad to say these are finally ready to get on your tabletop !
Uscarl Miniatures and Kev Adams have combined their talents to offer you these wonderful even if somehow smelly and grumpy fellows.

Quick one today with a model painted for a friend as a token of gratitude for his continued excellence and kindness. I've meant to paint him a little something for a while but never could find what to do until he just sent me tis guy along another that should get painted soon enough... ^^

Yes I know, squats again, well I guess it's a form of coming out I guess. I love stunties, there I said it ! Now I've been considering getting back on my chaos renegade army for some time but you know how things are right ? There's always a good excuse to do something else and as long as stuff gets done and painted, I don't mind much actually. Things, is though, there's been a combination of events lately that lead me to seriously consider what I'd do next for my chaos army.

YUP... Yearly review, we've reached that time ! It's honestly a good way for me to keep track of what I've done or should have done or just plan what I want to do next ! But since you're all so eager to read what I have to say I won't let you wait any longer.
