The inevitable bodge up

I spent the past couple of days putting together a second Doooooom Wheel for my Skaven. This thing was on track to look real good. I had a new recipe for wood that looks excellent, the metal would be rusty, the bronze stained, the works. Last night I finally glued on the first wheel in the only way you possibly can assemble it. And here is the result.

Upside down back to front rats in the wheels. I can't remove the wheels without damaging the whole unit and even if I could, I couldn't then remove and reset the rats without further damage. So instead it'll have to take to the battlefield as a monument to my "duh reading the instructions upside down" moment.

High Elves - The Maiden Guard

I recently picked up these off Trademe for a quite reasonable price (I've seen people asking for over US$100 for the full set of 10)! These are a WIP, but late in the piece. I need to tidy up the robes, finish off the spears and a couple of other niggling things.

I do quite like the figures, but they are VERY small indeed, especially when placed besides other GW figures of a more recent make (eg Wood Elf way watchers).

On a completely different topic, one of the reasons why I haven't been able to take many pictures recently to put on this blog has been the dire summer weather here.

I took this pictures this afternoon to show just what it's been like.

50 Followers and a lot of undead

I somehow seem to have acquired 50 followers! Thank you all very much, I am deeply honored.

I haven't put anything new up on here for a while as the weather has been too crappy to take pictures. One of these days I really must acquire a lightbox. However, today the clouds vanished for long enough for me to take some pictures. They're all undead for the Dreadfleet based Warhammer RPG I've been GM-ing.

First up we have some Skellington marines. I would just like to say that I really really really dislike these figures, they snap and break if you look at them crosseyed, even with the strongest glue.

And next we have a trio of Crypt Horrors. These will count as the Ghoul King and his Leuftenants. I originally was going to paint them greenish like on the GW box art, but decided that flesh tones would look more ... disgusting.
