    Hello all! The last month or so I have been getting back into painting and wargaming. I am starting my first ever paint blog later today. I'm going to show some my latest work. I am painting a stegadon right now, but I also have some DnD minis to share! Everyone here has inspired me to paint more!!

    I'm hyped up on the best caffeine known to man. I'm literally feeling like an mix of Fingolfin and Elrond from JRR tolkiens legendarium.

    Ok, not dead yet, but 1/3rd done of all saurus spines. Hope the highlighting will be a little quicker than applying the base colour...

    I adjusted my original target slightly to get a list ready for the 25th to play in warhammer world, this is what I've painted so far:

    20 grots
    20 squigs
    1 gobba
    1 shaman

    And we're only half way!

    Well well, it is the 16th already, so I guess I should post my progress. The starters came this week, so I had like 3 days instead of 16, but that's alright. I have build the troglodon and the saurus warriors, have carno and the knights left, as well as the conversions. I will get painting soon and they all should be ready till the end of the month, as I will probably speed paint the saurus warriors and upgrade them from there later. In that line of thought, can some of you kind gentleman give me some advice in regards to painting the troglodon, the model looks really good, but it is quite large and I tend to fuck up large models like the Imperial knight in 40k or some of the vehicles

    State of the Marcus, may 19th 2018:

    Infantry model equivalency painted YTD = 206

    primed and on deck:
    4 Saurus spearmen
    3 mantic salamanders

    unprimed on the relatively current to do list:

    16 Stormcast eternals for commission. 15 of those are unbuilt and need to be built with upgrade shields
    20 saurus shields
    a whole bunch of unit bases
    at least 3, but probably 15 or so saurus temple guard. i have not counted the blighters yet.
    at least 6 saurus knights
    other lizardmen
    88 dwarf spearmen
    1 royal undead cavalry test model
    tomb guard
    sphinx
    dread tomb king on royal beast.

    notes:

    We have breached the 200's. Normally i do this in April or earlier. A little late, but damn, losing your job sucks away free time in some ways having a job does not.

    I've still got a ways to go this month to reach my goal of 250 infantry model equivalency. we'll get there though. the plan is to have the saurus/salamanders done by the end of the weekend, knockout the stormcast commission between applications/order processing during next week. that will bring me to 245.

    I _might_ make my target. Black Knights are practically finished (missing bases but my winter bases are quick to do) and Grave Guard are... pretty close. I guess I'll need one evening.
    Working on the Morghast Armor now, I won't make it this month I think. Well, perhaps one Morghast but not both.
