Paint Table Saturday 150 - Odds and Sods

Hi All,

Sorry for the infrequent posting. I'm beavering away but don't have much in the way of progress.


So I've primed the Halflings and "Beastmen" (in the background right) and have started slopping on base color. The Chukk (Space Chickens) are for Dustin's Rogue Trader scenario, but i need to stat them out. I'm beginning to suspect that there will not be enough hours in the day to play all the games I desire. Chukk from Alternative Armies, Halflings: Effin Cool, Beastmen: Eureka.


In keeping with the "theme" for Oldhammer Weekends open battles, I acquired some chests etc from Castle Kits. These are nice little Hirst molds objects. Barrels sacks and the like. I intend to put some together into stowage for some scratch built carts for the Muffin caravan that is trying to get to Marienburg. Just an FYI, pay attention to the materials your stuff is made out of. These are plaster, which I discovered after tossing one of the packs into a tub of soapy water. I don't think I ruined them, but I got very worried that I scrubbed off some of the detail.


The merchant Lotho McStuffins, Burgher of the Moot and former Mayor of Sauerapfel. We'll see if I can get all this done.


I was also kindly reminded that I sort of agreed to paint a minion for The Bazaar of Crooked Wonders on Facebook. I found I have more Goblin Fanatics so I'll try that.

I'm also hoping to get these Beastmen and maybe even Chaos Centaurs painted for Herohammer and include them as allies in my Oldhammer Weekend. Some say I'm being meta, but I say I'm giving myself a reason to paint this stuff and have some fun trying different things with my army. Nobody wants to play the exact same army over and over again. Well maybe some do, but I like adding new fun things from time to time.

Welcome to Andrew Dyer, I know him from Oldhammer and as the primary organizer of this year's event. A very talented painter, he has been dragged kicking and screaming into the bloggisphere by the demise of Warseer. His blog is Acceptable Radiation. Join myself and Asslessman in being cool kids and follow his blog. I also think you should follow Anthony B's blog, The Lead Collector, he has far too few followers.

Well, as you can see, I've got my work cut out for me. See you soon.

  1. I say paint what you like! The only good thing coming from the death of Warhammer fantasy is that painting (which was part of my hobby) now constitutes the majority of my hobby. I paint what I like, when I like Oh, and thanks for the generous plug for my blog!

    1. Hi Anthony, yeah I've come to that conclusion as well. I'm trying to bring the gaming up more. I also seem to spend an inordinate amount of time blogging about the hobby, rather than doing it.

  2. You've got some great bits and pieces on the table Sean and I love the look of those items from Castle Kits.

    1. Hi Michael, yes I'm both excited and terrified by the things I need to do before the end of the month. Yes the Castle Kits stuff is nice. I hope I can do them justice.

    1. Yes Hugh! Chickens in Spaaaace! I think it might be fun to only communicate in clucks and caws.

    1. Thanks Dai, it's probably all going to come crashing down. But I'll give it a try. I think you'll like those blogs.

  5. You are getting into mini size: Halflings, space chickens, gob's.
    Paint what you like and what you need to play a game. A mojo can disappear quickly if not fed properly.

    1. Hi Cedric, good to hear from you. I just like to paint what captures my imagination. The main hoe is that I won't get bored before I finish. Mojo is elusive and needs to be capitalized upon when it's present.
