Jacobite came up with a interesting idea the other day for a thread where members could post a update on what hobby stuff they have been up to each day.

This is not to replace project logs or modelling or painting just to post things that don't always fit into a current ongoing projects or just link in to an existing project log, fiction piece or a bit of fluff you are trying to write anything as long as it is hobby based.

Staff may also use this to mention things they are working on for the Forums.


A few pictures may be included to help show what you have been up to and links to other parts of the forum can also be included if you like.


To keep this as well organised as possible pop up you activities under a heading for the area it would normally be posted under.

Hello all,
here is my last days activity to use as an example of the sort of thing this thread is for.

Hopefully better ones will pop up later :)

Painting
Today I dug out a Nob Biker I converted up some time ago and started getting some paint onto him. For me this is a plan to push on with a Wazdakka Gutsmek bike,kopta, buggy and skorcha army.



The link to the Plog can be found below.
http://www.heresy-online.net/forums/showthread.php?t=57978&page=48 Post 239 is the most recent.


Modelling.
Apart from sorting through boxes for lost bikers and parts for Buggies and Skorchas not much has been achieved. Started prepping some second hand bikes though.

Fluff.
I made a poor start to writing a bit of background for my freshly named Warboss today and the Blitz Brigade in the Homebrew section.

Painting: This morning I finished off the SM Assault Squad that has been sat upon my desk for 12 months. My attention has now shifted to a couple of SM bikes and Scouts to finish off some other units.

Modelling: Not much really, except bitz shopping for another Terminator squad :)

Painting:
I painted three Sanguinary Guard models a marble white, much to my disappointing it looked less impressive after I took a second and third look.

Modelling:
I made two gear racks for my Kroot to go with the encampment I'm currently building for them.

Right I should probably post something in here shouldn't I.

Painting: Today I'm going to be finishing off the two scouts I started painting yesterday. This is what they looked like at the start of yesterday:



And this is what they looked like at the end of last night:



Just got the leathers to do, bit of a wash on the bases, right shoulder unit marking and metal bits on their heads to do, plus touch ups and weathering.

Modelling: I'll most likely try and chip away more at some Land Speeder Storms I'm converting up from 2 ruined Land Speeders I have lying around.

Painting.
This night I started painting an eldar sniper (see my WIP) and washing a GK (who at the moment looks like a steel statue). Hopefully I'll have some wip pics of it tomorrow.

Painting

Got quite a bit done last night and today. I've started the Krell, Lord of Undeath that's been sat primered in my case for about 8 months and it already looks pretty good. Then again it's hard to mess up that particular model - it looks good no matter what ;)

I also made a start on one of the 5 chaos knights that are sat on my paint station - just doing the one to start with to test a recipe for reds and I'm happy with how it turned out so I'll be doing the rest of them like that too - I just need to practice edge highlighting and find a good colour that's not too orange.

Modelling

I've been working on the banner top for my Knights Harlequin standard bearer. I'm using the state troops skull and crossed swords banner top with the swords and laurel cut off and repositioned and then lots of greenstuff to add more bits and I have the slight resemblance of a skull in a jester hat. I'll post pics when I get time and of course update my plog when I finish :)

Yesterdays efforts were limited.

Painting
Whilst Papa Nurgle is visiting I have given up on painting, with snotty nose and streaming eyes I'm having trouble seeing much lol.

Modelling
Bit more success on the glue and knife front as long as I take my time and put the knife down before I sneeze.
Managed to get a second hand bike up and ready to paint.



There are a couple more pictures in my plog.

So:

Modelling: Today I disassembled three second hand Chaos Termies with lightening claws (the CSM Termie Lord Version) in preperation for their return to the Imperium and also flung all my termies into a bag in preperation for some solid plans in regards to who will go in what squad. I also spent an hour or so on the Land Speeder Storms again. Progress is slow but we are getting there.

Painting: None!

Other: Watched docos on: The Falklands War, the recruitment of the Gurkhas and Royal Marine Officers. Successful day.
