Painting Progress – 20091116

As it turns out, painting the Hellpit Abomination isn’t quite as much fun as assembling it has been.  I don’t think I’ve ever painted anything this big that’s fleshy and not tank-y.

I did knock out one (just one) of the new clanrats, mostly to see how it’d paint up.  Quite easily, as it turns out.  Easier than the old ones, for sure.

Hot potatoes!

Something I’ve been looking forward to doing for a while is lining up a bunch of clanrats next to each other.  From left to right:

  • A Stormvermin I painted in the early ’90’s (’93?  ’94?).  I just thought Skaven looked awesome.
  • A clanrat I painted in college (’97-’98).  Never got up to enough models to play WHFB, but I tried.
  • A clanrat I painted when I realized I was arguably a grown up and I could afford to play mini games (late ’05).  
  • A clanrat I painted over the weekend. :)  (See above.)

I’ve also converted up two Plague Mortar Teams.  I’ve painted one (clearly).

I’ve also started converting up a Warp Grinder.  Not sure that I’m going to use one any time soon, but why the heck not?
