I'm not sure about everyone else on the forum but my Warhammer background was a near 50:50 split between WFRP and WFB but painting was as big a part of the hobby for me as anything during my formative years. It was after a getting a desire to paint again for the first time in twenty years that I stumbled on the v4 remake and later the TEW remake. I've not done quite as much paiting as I'd have liked this past year, which I suppose is a consequence of growing up and having responsibilities and other such nonsense, but I'm pretty happy I can still paint. As someone who does a fair bit of cycling, I can honestly say that twenty years not in the saddle would have been a bigger struggle, so I'm proposing that old adage needs changing.

Anyway, I'm thinking of grabbing some minis for the TEW campaign we're starting up. They won't be used a lot but for setting the odd major scene, they can be pretty neat. Plus, I've got a Lord of Change hanging around, too, which should be making an appearance later on (earlier if they botch SoB).

I think it would be good to see people's creations (hoping I'm not the only one). This is what I've managed this year, Horus Heresy, but I still like the minis. I've got the Magus v Russ Diorama waiting next..

Looks great! I might throw up a few pictures later if my potato of a camera can take a good picture.

that lad with the chainsword is kind of oddly angled, isn't he?

well, poor sculpting isn't your problem. good work on the painting, and i suggest for areas of heavy fur and such you use a darker undercoat to give it the feeling of more depth in the future.

Thanks guys.

@Orin, I think they were going for a pose where he was backing away/on the retreat but you're right, he does look a bit funny almost like he needs wires attaching. Agreed on the deep fur.

Yay! Painting! Haven't played WFRP in years but painting Warhammer minis is still a weekly hobby.
