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!

Orks painting

Happy Monday!

I hope you’ve enjoyed your long weekend if you’ve had one, I’ve spent mine crafting as you can imagine 🙂 you’ll be happy to hear that I’ve finished the baby blanket in time for the baby shower, but so last minute (I was weaving ends in the car on the way there!) that I didn’t get time to take a proper picture. Here it is next to all the other presents, this little girl is already spoilt!


The future parents were super glad though so that’s what matters 🙂

In other news I’ve started painting my warhammer miniatures again, and I’ve made some good progress on a squad of orks. The story for this is actually quite funny, in the warhammer universe, orks are fungi that keep on growing all over the planets. I have this crazy theory that orks are French and that’s why they can’t say “Hs” so I’m painting their clothes blue white and red 😂 anyway, I’ve done their skin and  started the metal bits on some of them so far.


I’m pretty excited with how they’ve turned out so far and I can’t wait to actually play a game with them when they’re actually painted! I’ll be back on Wednesday with some crochet update 😊
