Messing around with some extra bits I had on hand. Figured I'd make myself a counts as fireblade, as it's one of the few models I don't own still. Just got him and my death jester counts as primed today too. Those and my piranhas are on my painting to-do list.

Here's some photos from my latest game too. It's very nice to own over 2k of painted models. Really makes games much more cinematic and enjoyable for me.

Liking the new fireblade :)

THe photos from ingame are great - completely agree on your sentiment about finished models and gaming scenery - really adds to the effect.

Thanks for the update, enjoyed catching up!

Finished painting up my fireblade and death jester. I also almost finished my DS8 turrets, while also starting the basing process on a ton of firewarriors, my vespid, and a couple of sniper drone marksmen. I also finished basing my last two razorshark/sunshark bases.

Sorry for the super dark photos, was rushing so that I could run off to the store to get in a game!

Evolving really well, reminds me I need to finish my deployed turret model :D

I like the recipe list too - I have a small moleskin with all my paint schemes listed in it for reference.

Been quite a while since I updated here. I've gotten a ton of progress done on my second batch of firewarriors. Their base is done and they're almost all painted except for shins, weapons and highlights. Piranha's got put farther down on the to do list because I was just getting bored with them. You know what isn't boring though? Named characters and the big suits they pilot!

The other ghostkeel I'd been using I got second-hand. So it was super cheap and pre-magnitized which is nice. However, it was kind of just in the "stock" pose which I found kinda boring. I've been itching to give El'Eoro'D'Yanoi'Seri a ghostkeel with a much more visually striking pose. So I bought another ghostkeel. :D
I'm rather happy with how the pose looks, although I kind of wish I had twisted the torso just a tad bit farther to the left to make it even more dynamic.

It's odd, I looked around a fair bit online to find some other people's ghostkeels for inspiration and there just aren't that many ghostkeels in interesting/different poses.

I'm itching to get a third ghostkeel too, because there is a tournament coming up next month and I know their effectiveness shoots of significantly once you increase their numbers from 2 to 3. Hmmmm...

Thanks! I'm very much a huge fan of doing tons of ice camouflage on stuff now. You can bet that my newest ghostkeel is going to be mostly in stealth mode.

You'd think after several years I wouldn't really need the list anymore, but it just feels so much safer to have it chilling out there.

Yeah definitely helps when a couple years since the last finished model in a collection. :)

She's mostly done (tabletop qualitty). Still need to get magnets, assemble, paint weapon choices. Also needs highlighting. But I'm going to move onto other projects in the meantime.

Got my extra Sunshark and Razorshark in paint remover at the moment. Currently working on finishing up 14 firewarriors.
