June painting update

June has seen me mostly waiting for my Malifaux stuff to arrive, some of it is out of stock so meanwhile 'the devil makes work for idle hands'.

I painted up some test Tyranids a while ago, I wanted a generic bug army for Sci-Fi gaming, but meanwhile courtesy of some eBay bargains I have painted up a bunch of Chaos Marines, once I get some time I will have a photo shoot for these.

This weekend has been a bit of a pick and mix, I had popped in to Gripping Beast after work to see how their Saga rules were coming on, I am really looking forward to this one and that caused me to have a delve in to the lead mountain and dig out all my dark age civilians, so those have been cleaned up and undercoated.

I have also blocked a basic flesh tone on to the Wargames Factory 'Numidians' and will get some more done on these along with the resin hay car this week. But just to prove how fickle I am, whilst I was listening to pocasts over the weekend someone mentioned Firestorm Armada, so I pulled the box from the shelf, cleaned up and assembled the ships and slapped a undercoat on them.

The ships are going to be green, inspired by the shot of the carrier in the rulebook, I have sprayed some Tamiya NATO green on with the airbrush, but they will need a couple of coats. I ran out of prepared paint before I got to the battleship, so that will wait till next time.

I also have been able to get a GW corpse cart kit on eBay, the lack of instructions hasn't really proved to be to much of a problem, but I haven't decided whether this will be a chariot or a warshrine. The 'rider' is likely to end up a chaos mage.
