Default Finished another unit

Another update, one that has been slow in the making.

First off, is a pic of my "work space" which is really the kitchen table. Part of my problem is that I have to set up and take down every time I want to paint, which eats into the little painting time I have. There is a nice bench in the basement, but it is away from everything and the family. Oh well.

Painting area:



Bases finally painted on the first batch of High elf Warriors.



Ranked up warriors.


Shields almost done:


A modular move tray built, painted and flocked:


And..... FINISHED ELVES!!!!







Finally, another finished unit. Of course, this is supposed to have 35 warriors, but I am happy to have a regiment box finally painted.

And here is the next batch:



Thanks for watching and commenting. On to some Wood Elf Eternal Guard!

Thanks, I like how they turned out. It took several coats to get them to look good, white is such a pain to get to look good. I think they are really going to look great once 35 are all ranked up.

Well, the kiddos had their first games. We played a couple mini games with a hero and one block of troops on a 2x4 table to get started. Then another with five archers each. I didn't count points, which favored the High Elves, but they got the basics. We played two games. Then my son played another by himself before bed, and then they played another gasme the next morning by themselves. I have a couple pics, but I am loathe to post pics of my children online. They did aseem to enjoy it, and both wanted to know when there archers would be painted. My daughter wanted to know when here knights would be dopne, and if they would "trample her brother's guys". Her words. Daddy is proud. It was a sucky week here with all the bad weather, so I got very little painting done. I hope to get a fresh start this new week and knock out the Eternal Guard.

KT out

Sweet... glad to hear the kids are digging it... There is nothing better than playing with painted pieces... it makes the army yours.

So after a long two weeks full of Scouts, snow and work, I have nothing to show except for these few pics. I am waiting on green wash to keep going on the Wood elves, but here are a couple pics.

First game, and yes, those are pink dice.


The battle line:


Wood elf Eternal guard. The armour just needs a lst highlight of 1:1 Bright Bronze and Silver, and the cloak is just basecoated in Sick Green.




And the start of a Bretonnian paladain. My daughter has been bugging me to paint her "king".

Great stuff, good to see that you are still progressing. Top job on the beach! You are extremely lucky to have all of your family involved, I hope I can have the same some day! Keep up the good work!
