Lots of work , no painting...

As you can see in the pic below:
I have had a busy, unproductive week. But I thought I would give you all a glimpse of my work desk.
  1. A couple Scattergunners I needed to get my unit to 10.
  2. A couple Shredders for my mini Everblight I am making for a friend.
  3. Troll Whelps. Finger lickin good.
  4. Phineus Shae and Bart
  5. A unit of Trencher Commando's...that I got painted pink. I am working on a tutorial on how to salvage a model's paint job - and you can't get a more needy model than a pink one...
  6. Warpwolf
  7. Wolves of Orberos
  8. Dire Troll Blitzer
  9. Nyss Sorceress
  10. Thagrosh
  11. a unit of Mechanics and Widowmakers freshly stripped.
  12. An Argus
  13. Poor Armless wolves
  14. My allergy medicine - the main reason I have not been painting - haven't felt like it...
  15. My dipping clips. I tried to do an army via dipping in the past - didn't work to well. I keep them as a reminder.
  16. My paintbrush/tool/paperclip holder.
  17. My paint tray.
  18. A small posabel flashlight. For when I prime in black.
  19. Gorilla Glue - greatest glue made.
  20. My insta set spray - to make gluing instantaneous.
  21. One of my new Windsor brushes.
  22. The EXTREME juggernaut that just came in the post today. See? I am a man of my word. Will ship it out as soon as I get an address.
So, yeah - been feeling a bit under the weather and thought I would get some assembly in this past week. Its hard to paint when you are sneezing all the time. Sorry guys.

So whats on your desks? Do you have mini's from 6 different factions going at once?

Avast Ye Lubbers!

 Arrrr! Ah know ye didn think tha' 'ol burb be laying low this past week did ye? O' course 'e was paintin' - it was some scurvy dogs that he be paintin'.

Ok, enough of my "type like a pirate day". Actually its been paint like pirate week here at burb-land. I know - I know I should have posted them as I was working on them, but a few things came up.
  1. I ran out of green stuff making bases - so 1/2 of them have normal bases.
  2. I thought I would try something different on the bases and of course I didn't like the look so 1/2 of them have arcs painted and 1/ don't so I need to fix that.
So here we go. Lets start it off with some 'jacks.

Here are the heavies. And now for some lights.

Those are all the jacks I have currently painted, but I have another Mariner to paint up.

Now for the units. I have a full and a minimum Sea Dog Unit painted, a full Press Gangers Unit painted. and 3 Riflemen painted. I tried to make the units distinctive, but appear to be on the same ship. This is hard to do when they are chaotic pirates. So I decided to go all out and make the max unit as bright and flamboyant as I wanted, and kept the minimum unit muted. So, here you go.

You all might remember my Fiona, well, here are 3 more solo's to go along with her.

None of my 4 - yes 4 cannons are finished and neither are Bart and Shae. But I am working on them.

So, I will try to keep the updates just that - updates. I just got swept up in a bit of skull duggery and would just as well paint as take pics this week. So sorry.

As always, comments and criticisms are welcome!

Sorry for the delay, winner anounced!

Well, I actually tried to contact the winner so I could post what model they wanted and who won but I have not heard from them. So...I thought I would call them out with a pic. All the pics I took with my son pulling the paper out of a box didn't turn out because a flash apparently washes out b&w laser printer ink...Doh!

So I took another one just now and I am calling you out! Claim it or be square!!
The winner is Plarzoid! Congrats - and update your e-mail on your blogger account for pete's sake :-D

Stay tuned to find out what model he chooses.

Ok, sorry for the delay - I was trying to find my wife's Camcorder I bought her for Christmas. She has it at work and forgot to bring it home tonight. My cellphone does video and my test shoot looked like crap today so - old school it is. I have all the names printed out (all 42 - I am counting everyone that got in before the end of the day we hit 40) I just need to cut them up, put them in a hat and draw the name.

Stay tuned fine followers!

Wow...just WOW. Free Extreme sculpt for one of my followers it is!

SO I put the challenge out and boy did I get the response. Over 25 new followers in less than 48 hours. I will include all 42 in the drawing to be held ASAP (most likely Friday so I can get the kid to help cut out all the names). What I want to do is put everyone's name in a hat and draw them out that way so I can film it. Also, because I am an old school dog like that so there. So again, thanks for the overwhelming response and congrats to one of you!
