This thread is going to act as a counterpart to my trophy rack one where I post as many WIP pictures as I can remember to take  :blush

 

Lets start out with some pictures of what I have threatened to paint for this month:

 

Deffskulls (pictured with Looted Wagon)

Here's one I just painted (to show the standard etc.)

 

113c6fc8-67e0-4736-895f-aaca1de4a89d_zps

 

One bit of the defence line (ignore the scum in the background):

Nothing special: changed the pose, greenstuffed some extra armour plates (you can't see from this angle)

 

He may well be painted before the day is done

You are off to a great start! The ork skin looks nice and the Deffskullz paint looks nice. 

 

One thing you might think about is drilling the barrels to your guns.

I'll try to get my hands on a hobby drill!

Thanks for the kind words to all.  I will be away in Canada for the next three or so weeks, so no more updates for a while.  Rest assured that I have not forgotten my beloved orks!

Right then!  Back on English soil at long last, which meant lengthy periods of reacquainting myself with my paints.  Unfortunately, my dark panzee got most of the love, however, I did manage to paint another 'ard boy.  6 to go in 3 days.  I think I can maybe do it?

 

Here he is, along with the three defence line bases:

At last, I have been able to dig my camera and SD card out of piles of clothes in my suitcase, and found the time to take some decent pictures of the models I painted for last month:

 

All the models from a stormboy's eye view:

The as yet unphotographed deffskull boyz:

And the battleship, named the Bizmark

Ha! I like the landspeeder as a space hulk - nice conversion and doubly satisfying since it's a  :bleep landspeeder. Best use I've seen for one - they are usually lurking around contesting objectives and taking way too much shooting to kill.

I've been madly painting up my dark panzee for a game coming next Monday, hence the lack of green related things.  While I have now painted up EVERY SINGLE ORK MODEL I OWN (I have far too much time at the moment), I do have some scenery in the works to liven up my current gameboard.

 

...yeah...

 

So here is a woodland, with the addition of some floating servo-skulls:

S1360004_zpsuv49gioy.jpg?t=1439306563

 

An early WIP of the mek shop:

 

S1360008_zpsreekskus.jpg?t=1439306512

 

S1360007_zpsrubn0dvr.jpg?t=1439306804

 

And a very, very, very early shot of what will be a damaged building.  Got the door and keypad done so far.

 

S1360005_zpsu4jghznr.jpg?t=1439306529

 

 

Also, as I was rooting around finding DE stuff, I ran into this blast from the past: another, unfinished diorama.  In this one, a Chaos beakie buried in rubble makes his last stand against a snakebite boy.

Thanks for looking!

I'm back!  I was having problems with photobucket, so I've moved to hosting on dakkadakka.  As a result, the images are much larger than usual, so I've spoilered them.  Below we see the completed damaged imperial building I threatened for this month, along with a vehicle spawned as a result of a mad max induced epiphany.

Welcome back, what kind of problems were you having with Bukkit - the reason I'm asking is because buttons inviting you to open your computer to unspecified sites somewhere on the internet don't tend to get a lot of use.

The quality of the pictures was decreasing whenever I cropped, resized or did anything, making them really blurred and useless.

In all honesty, that doesn't sound like a Bukkit problem - I'd recently had a decline in quality of some of my images but I tracked the problem down to my camera having gone back to Auto mode, selecting the fastest shutter speeds, highest ISO settings and highest resolution - none of which helps when taking photos of minis for display on a computer screen.

Re-setting the camera to manual, selecting the lowest ISO rating and a lower resolution, when used with a tripod and 2 second shutter delay, gives me far better photos that are roughly the right size anyway (re-sizing involves the computer having to do a lot of guesswork and the more guesses it has to make, the worse the end result tends to look) and cropping to size should be done before uploading (else you're just wasting Bukkit space).

 

What camera are you using?

Here's the forest I worked on last month, along with the megamek (who has finally seen some paint).

 

Spoiler

 

Also got some tankbusta conversions in the works, but nothing substantial yet.

Squig out.
