GW Warhammer Rock Troll and some old Grenadier

It has been way too long without an update here.  Despite the radio-silence, there have been a number of miniatures completed.  I will be posting them here in batches:

Games Workshop Warhammer Fantasy Battle Rock-Troll

Next up - color scheme test for GW Warhammer Fantasy Battle High Elf Army:
There will be both an archer unit and spear unit with this rusty/tundra color scheme.  Also, a ballista team with commander is nearly finished as well.  I'll post those soon.

1985 Grenadier Female Warrior - with an interesting 'Battle Tiara'

 Legends/Reaper Shambling Mound/Swamp Monster

1984 Grenadier 'Fighting Wizard' - but on the back he has a scimitar, so, i.e. DRUID!  Staff was originally longer, but this one had a casting defect.  More to follow!

Oldies but goodies

So here's a few pics from the years past - some old mini's that I painted and are stashed in the back of the miniature display case.  I also found this picture of a visit from a gaming buddy of mine - we unearthed the old gaming table.  It is amazing how that table seemed so much bigger back then.  Also, too, the stickers kind of date us...

Into the fires of battle, unto the anvil of war! - Salamander Army in Progress

So my son is going to field a Warhammer 40k Salamander 1500pt force for an upcoming 40k Tournament at the end of the month.  We've been working on his force and aside from two Tactical Squads previously finished, here are some more recent additions.  Upcoming will be a Land Raider, 2 Assault Squads and a Chaplain... stay tuned for pictures coming up.  I will also be fielding an Imperial Guard Army and one of the Desert-themed units are pictured here as well (the scheme was inspired from the Cordra Hydratus Jaroon forces).  All units Games Workshop, Priming by Army Painter, Paints by Games Workshop and Valejo.

WAAAGH! Da Orcs.

So here's some before and after shots of the orcs from the Blackfire Peaks 40K starter box:

The entre blackfire peak Orc units (save for the 3 helicopters) were done in roughly 2-3 days and only because the Army Painter varnish (strong tone) was used and took some time to properly cure.  It is recommended to let them cure 24-48 hours before using the Matte Sealer (Army Painter).  These were all base-coated with simple single-color base coats using Vallejo paints, then dipped into the Army Painter Strong tone varnish, dried for 48 hours and then matte-coated with Army Painter Matte Spray.  The entire force is game-table worthy and looks fairly decent.  Coming up Imperial Guard Jouran Dragoons with 'Desert Mirage' paint scheme, Salamanders and other vehicles...

Imperial Guard (Desert), Necrons and Salamander Terminators

So it's been a while for an update here - but it isn't due to lack of activity.  Pictured here is an addition to my slowly growing Desert-themed Imperial Guard army, the start of a new necron army and another start to my son's Salamander Space Marine army.  Enjoy.  All mini's game's workshop, paints by Vallejo.  the Imperial Guardsmen Heavy Weapons unit has a scratch built base along with sand bags made by Tamiya WW2 line.  Weathering on the minis was my first use of the Tamiya pastel weathering products.
