Miniature painting

Happy Saturday everyone!

I hope you’ve had a great week, here I’ve had lots of work helping my husband with his experiments. There was a lot to do but we make a pretty good team so we only have a little bit to finish on Monday. We’ve been enjoying our rainy Saturday at the hobby shop and I have finished painting two units of my miniatures. I’m pretty excited as it means that I’m progressing nicely on my 18 for 2018 goals!

The two units I’ve finished are orks, which in the lore of the game are meant to be growing like fungus over the galaxy. They love fighting and will only follow the strongest ork, even it that means fighting between themselves before they can actually fight with anyone else! I’ve painted a unit of nobz, which are big experienced warriors, and a warboss, which is even bigger and their leader.

I’ve had a lot of fun painting those and I’ve also recently been working on a third ork unit, which I will share hopefully next week. It’s been a nice break from my RBTL shawl knitting, as I’ve hit a bit of a slow patch with it. I really want to get it off my needles though, so I’ll work hard to finish it asap!

Models, de-stash and Poké-alphabet week 2 

TGIF!

This week was pretty rough but I managed to make it through. I spent most of the week frantically painting for my Armies of Parade exhibition tomorrow. I’m pleased to say I finished my board and the models I planned on displaying.  

  

I also got s’more of Mr. Jelly’s tentacles done, so the de-stash is going well 😊  there is a lot of blue on this side but I’m trying to add in some more oranges and reds.


And finally, I have finished A for Alakazam and I am now stitching B for Bulbasaur.

Monday WIP updates

Happy Monday crafters! 

After a nice and relaxing weekend, I am starting the week with yet another update on my wips of the moment. 

My Veronica granny square is now going to be part of a picnic blanket for this summer. I will crochet 4 of those squares, attach them together and line the blanket with a waterproof-ish fabric. 

 
I am taking suggestions on the colour of the other squares (I want 2 blue and 2 of another colour) and also on the fabric, I have no idea what would make a good lining. 

I have also (finally) sanded and spray painted my volcano piece of terrain, now I just need to add some extra paint and some lava.   

I was thinking of using resin coloured in red/orange. Have you ever used coloured resin for modelling? Or maybe you have suggestions for a lava effect? 

I hope everyone had a good weekend!
