Ok today was the original deadline for gifts. I have edited the original post to reflect to who have received gifts. According to my calculations there are 3 of us still waiting. Garslag, DocNuk and myself. 
 
I have seen BigMek Gobsmasha posting on here are about, hopefully he/you get it sorted out. 
 
I will give those other gitz who are delayed until the end of the week to give a their recipient  a situation report on the gifts status.  
 
After that the public shaming will commence. :whip :choppa :dakka

In the end, it was the Sunday afternoons he couldn't cope with, and that terrible listlessness which starts to set in at about 2:55, when you know that you've had all the baths you can usefully have that day, that however hard you stare at any given paragraph in the papers you will never actually read it, or use the revolutionary new pruning technique it describes, and that as you stare at the clock the hands will move relentlessly on to four o'clock, and you will enter the long dark teatime of the soul.

According to the pay attention to stuff grots this leaves only Garslag & myself left. They also tell me that things are in motion concerning for both of them so :thumbs

Yay :)

20190123-182004.jpg

Everyone here will recognise Badfang's handiwork. I'm well chuffed with this, especially the fella with the big shoota, still trying to work out where the body came from! (I suspect an old SAG mek?) (Love the red paint job on the big shoota - recently nicked from the Sunburnz?)

Oh, and there woz a box of dice, so now I have to go play some Kill Team or I'll look ungrateful.

Anyway, well worth waiting for, cheers mate.

SuperYay - I tried to match the paint to your Collectors as best I could but English mid-winter light as opposed to Aussie spring light :sowhat

 

Thought you might like the RT figs - the one in the top hat (could use him as a mek wiv a zappa) is the same as Boney (I think - e's been modified a bit but probs started off as a buggy gunner) with an RT lascannon (swiped off an old BloodAxe Dredd-itta) and I went rooting through my bitz boxes to get them as many 'collectables' as I could find tucked into their belts - sadly, the one with the chain didn't get any more chains wrapped round him coz the stuff I'd ordered didn't turn up in time >:

 

You might find that the dice are a bit easier to use than standard too ;)

 

Chuffed you're appy wiv 'em (and that they finally got there :lol )

 

PS - didn't paint the base edges 'coz I couldn't figure out what brown you'd used - seemed a better bet to leave them for you to paint so that they match up proppa.

I'm really glad that you mentioned this, as my first thought when i saw them was to use them to bulk out Da Kollectorz. :D Your painting style is quite different to mine, but I'm comfortable with that - I've mentioned before that orks to me should be a mismatched rabble if at all possible.

I have some jewellery chain laying around, and also some plastic stuff from a chaos LR. You won't be offended if I help Chainy expand his collection?

I think you've given me the kick in the arse I needed to do a little more work on this project. I'll take a photo of all the painted Kollectorz together, tomorrow or Friday probably.

That lascannon - I've had one of those since forever in one of my earliest Evil Sunz shoota boyz units. I never knew what it was meant to be and i always counted it as a big shoota. Whoops. Anyway, it was the spanner hanging from his belt that put me in mind of the SAG mek. You've done a bang-up job of fitting him in with the modern ladz. Boney sticks out like dog's balls (again - mismatched rabble), where this guy could pass for a regular boy at first glance.

:)

Are any of them named?

Sound, I thought your Kollectorz could maybe do with a hand since you hadn't updated them and (even though I'd used your pik for reference) after I'd done them it was fairly obvious that I'd overdone the bloo a bit - oh well, orks can never be too lucky :biggrin

 

As they were a prezzy I thought that I ought to let you name them (oh, and you're very welcome to bring Chainy up to spec :thumbs )

 

Steel Legion Drab - is that Citidal paint - I'll have a look at their paint list a bit later  :!

 

You shouldn't be too far off from a full mob now :?

Group photo taken - postimg is not letting me upload right now :/

The most noticeable difference is that the new guys have browner skin - perfect. I always try to mix skin tones within a unit. I've found that rather difficult to achieve with the new Citadel range, so you've done me a favour there. I need one of the LGSs to start stocking Vallejo or something.

Also noticed that the bases haven't been painted, and the brown that's on them currently is my usual Mournfang Brown undercoat. Probably was planning to DFO that last.

I really like the guy with the shoota and about three different blues on him. You probably noticed I was trying to mix the blues up in the unit. :)

Yeah, the skin tones are just the way I normally do them - brown base lightened with a yellow-er mid coat and a yellow-ish highlight then washed with a brownish green oil-wash - that many ways of doing ork skin colours that I didn't think I'd be able to match yours anyway, and not all white people are the same shade of pink :lol

 

Every time I paint up DeffSkullz I try to vary the bloos up on them - usually the best I can manage is dark bloo or light bloo, this despite having a whole bunch of different blooz (or at least differently named blooz) to go at. This time I started putting a bit of green in one of them and tried to mix the others by mixing one dark bloo with a different light bloo, then doing it again with other pairs of blooz - stilll didn't help that much :bang

 

Hope Postimages get their act in gear soon :search

Lighting could be better, i took this photo at like 1am last night while going a few rounds with sudden onset insomnia. (Could be worse too, i could have turned off all the lights and took photos in the dark) I'll do better next time, and hopefully include some newly painted wunz.

I have a strong urge to call the top hat guy Slash.

Cheers Garslag, looks as though I slightly overcompensated the hight adjustments on those RT plastics a bit :blush

 

Slash sounds good for the mek, and going off the relative size of him (and the nature of his collection) Bossy might not be a bad name for the one in the spikey hat :?
