Time to paint PINK!

This will be my first foray into the Paint Pink blog. I’ve been a fan for two years, and have finally gotten the guts to get out here and join the ranks of the pink armies. It has taken me several weeks to decide what army I was going to paint. I wanted to paint a faction that I didn’t already have a paint scheme for. That left out Minions, Circle, Retribution, and Khador.  I bounced back and forth several times, but I finally decided on the faction that I once labelled as the one would never own. One model made all the difference. Thyra, flame of sorrow.

I’m not sure what is going to end up in her army, but I’m going to try to work out the paint scheme on a dervish that I just happen to have lying around. I should have some pictures in the next week or two.

So what are you painting pink this year??

Welcome 2011

Its been really quite so I thought with the new year I’d post. I’ve been busy with my Hordes models since there book releases in the latter half of 2010 that I haven’t really gotten to much of my Cryx. I got some bane thralls from my sister for Christmas that I’ll have to put together and paint. As usual I have some posts as August approaches (that the month I’m doing Breast Cancer Brawl in). Maybe I’ll commit to at least a post a month….we’ll have to see.

So Happy New Year to all, Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with this year.

BCB Boise Auction Entry

It has been a long, long, long time.  But I am still gunning for a painted army to auction off again.  Life and what have yous means I was strapped for the extra army, but a local player wanted to donate minis, but needed them painted.  So I stepped up and we are going for a Searforge army now.  He donated the battlebox, I am kicking in a few minis and I just need a unit or two to make it all gravy.  I got solid leads for everything, but I got one month to the day to get this sucka done.

I got great progress so far, having a few more models left before i am waiting for deliveries, which is where I want to be.

I got a Basher 50% done, and Thor, a Bokur, and artillery crew to still work on.

A Long Overdue Update – More Pink Trolls!

Well, after what looks like a year off from Hordes (I blame Cryx WM Mark II) and a slight distraction in real life my Trolls are back!

First thou, some news. My Mother In Law at the start of Feb was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. 😦 Big shock and that was not the phone call that me or my wife ever wanted to take. Life takes a different route after news like this.

Good news is the operation and subsequent treatment (radiotherapy) is  now over and she is making a good recovery (and now rocks some awesome bandanna choices). It’s been hard supporting her and the family but out of all of us, she has been the strongest one!

Needless to say this time, alongside the release of Hordes Mk II and the incoming new Trollblood book has renewed my love of the big pink ones.

So I cracked out the camera to produce some sub standard finished pics of what I have been up to the past few weeks off and show the Pink Kriel off fully!

In hindsight I should have made a group shot but I don’t think my camera could cope with that much pink…..

Without further ado we have the Pink Kriel so far….

My pride of the collection so far and the most fun I have had painting a miniature!

And his smaller brother (or sister, it’s hard to tell….)

Impalers, and an Axer the basis of any good Troll collection

Grim on the hunt for, err, chicken?

Ahh, and to think he is going to bring all that doom.

Perhaps the most common solo seen in Troll armies?

Quite possibly the cutest PP minis ever?

The cornerstone of many bricks

Magic digging Pygmies? What could be better?

Smoke blowing gobbers, showing their support for the cause!

Hope you enjoy my hard work, I have some Champs, a Pyre Troll and a Stone Scribe Chronicler on my painting table to finish of and then some casters and maybe another beast or two before I start on the slog that is the Kriel Warriors. All that tartan is beginning to scare me….

On a final rather personal note I do have a Calandra who will be painted up in honour of my Mother In Laws success. Any suggestions on how to sugar coat the fact that I have picked a rather substantial character to represent her will be appreciated!

And it continues

As usual I have a bad pick to share. Its what I’ve been up too, after these are done I have:

6 more Bloodgorgers, 10 Raiders + sea witch, a helldiver, the coven, 2 raider captains, a converted skarlock, 2 plastic jack kits, 2 necrotechs and then all the cryx I own will be painted…

Wow thats still a lot to go. On a brighter note, we had our breast cancer brawl sat July 31 and raised at least $400 dollars, with my work matching this its a nice haul.

2010: Pittsburgh Race For The Cure

Hey All,

For Mother’s Day, I joined my mother again for the Pittsburgh Komen Race For the Cure. Being a gamer I only joined in on the walking half of the 5k run/walk. However I couldn’t show up alone, Pirate Queen Skarre & Master Necrotech Mortenebra also joined in the walk (the ladies posed for pics while Deryliss & skarlock were off getting them swag.) The Seether hopped into the timed run (maybe he’ll make it into jack about town).

There were lots of people there, it was cold and windy but another fine event. I wanted to get pics with a big sign of the event (there sort of a sign in the background), we found one later…right in front of the speaks and I was deaf from being with 40 ft of them, I didn’t want to get close enough for my ears to bleed.

Section 1 Done

So I’m doing a series of slow grow leagues to help my community get a tourny force fully painted. My the first step was 15 pts. So here’s my cryx. (excuse the pics, I’ll have to take a few at the shop next chance I get)

However, I painted full units; didn’t see the point in only painting half
