An update

Hello,

I never thought I would be having trouble posting even every fortnight (especially as I started this blog convinced that I can post twice a week!), but so it happens to be at the moment.

I have put my hobby on a side track, as if this weren't enough my greenstuff went bad! I have still managed to do some work on both my last 4 modern soldiers and some Warlord Celts I bought a while ago. I am turning them into Dark age warriors for my Dark age/Fantasy project.


Below are the four moderns. I wanted to do "something more" with the Radioman and I am turning him into a JTAC (basically an air support coordinator) - instead of simply replacing his rifle, I've strapped it to his backpack and I am modeling a fancy binoculars with distance measurer and whatnot. It is taking me way longer than it should, but well - small steps.
Following are a medic and two squad leaders, they are more or less finished, but need to be based.

I started working on my Dark age fantasy a while ago, but not until now I started working on the heroes. I am using Celts, but mostly to try some things and I will probably buy a box of plastic dark age warriors or vikings in the future. More on them when they will be finished, but they have an assortment of weapons and a standard bearer.

Thanks for looking,
Mathyoo

  2. I totally agree with Simon. I'm looking forward to seeing how your Dark Age fantasy figures turn out. It's good to see someone else doing fantasy gaming for a change. Keep up the good work, mate, even if it is slower than you'd like.

    1. Thanks Bryan. I will be focusing on the moderns until the 4 are finished, but will then turn to fantasy. I have some half-finished models I would want to paint/sculpt, but the project will be very low intensity.

    1. I'm glad you like them! Moderns will be put on hold after these 4, however, until I get some more.

    2. Nothing wrong with that, and let's face it. Some times it's nice to change up what you are working on.

    3. Yes, that's true - I blame the lack of someone to play with for my jumps, though! :D

  6. Looking good there mate- always good to see the WiP pics. Try 'Firestrike 7/9' for a good account of a British FAC in Afghanistan.

    Cheers,

    Pete.

  7. Sometimes real life gets in the way, but never give up! It looks as if you're still managing to do some good work.

    1. That is true, and if nothing else there will certainly be a period of productivity sooner or later.

  8. I can truly understand the problem you have with bloging, I'm in that position most every week.
    The figures you're currently working on shouldn't take you that long to finish when you drum up the necessary enthusiasm - maybe you're enjoying the journey rather than arriving !
    Good luck with the DA stuff, it's quite a chnage from moderns

    1. Yes, it's true, I am sure my enthusiasm dropped as I neared completion - it wouldn't be the first time!

  9. Just checking in. I'm having blogger block at the moment as well. By the time I feel like posting the topic seems stale. Take your time, we'll all still be here.
