    Troggoth Hag

    Hi Will Thanks. I didn't do all the assemblies for this kit. I only glued the ears, left and right hands and right ankle. Compared to GW figs which go together so easy I found it a poor fit. Spent a whole evening warming up and "bending" the resin back into shape so it would fit when put together. And still used some green stuff as I got to a point I was worried about snapping bits. For an expensive model it was a bit of effort. But in all of the "bad" aspects of this I really can't see this as a reason not to get forgeworld stuff. I have spent 6 weeks on this and thoroughly enjoyed almost every hour spent on this kit. It was pure joy to paint. So I will be popping to Nottingham to see what else I can buy. Simon

    B-25 Mitchell Mk.l (or maybe Mkll)

    Thanks Beggsy Such a shame most of it disappears! I managed to get a bit done, main bits together. little bits to do now before masking

    Troggoth Hag

    It is a fantastic figure, I kept discovering details as I was painting it, things I hadn't noticed when I started.

    "Sandbar Mitchell" - Tanker 8Z

    Was hoping for shiny but looks good. The black looks a bit mottled on the right wing or is that just the light playing tricks?

    B-25 Mitchell Mk.l (or maybe Mkll)

    Well I better pull my finger out as I have realised there is only just over 3 weeks left. Got the seats done and got it all glued to one side. I can close the fuselage up tonight and make a start on putting the rest together. Hopefully I should have enough time to get her done

    Sgt.Squarehead's Not Entirely Accurate Gunship

    Thats cool, may not be accurate but it looks the part I haven't even tried anything creative on my build.

    B-25J gunship

    Thats taking shape nicely, still got just over 3 weeks. Plenty of time
  13. Hi All Here is something I have just finished. The Troggoth Hag from Forgeworld for Warhammer. This was a commission for a friend. It is a lovely figure and tremendous fun to paint. There are so many little details that you don't notice until you are actually painting it. I would show you the Octopus in the net or the snotling hiding in the staff but I forgot to photograph them before It was collected. It took about 6 weeks to do complete. Hope you like it! Thanks for looking Simon

    B-25 Mitchell Mk.l (or maybe Mkll)

    Well I have finally restarted my B-25 Got a bit of interior panted. Still got the ICP to do and the seats (which somehow managed to disappear completely) And I finally managed to reorder stuff from the Big H. Got a mask (not in pic?), some decals which I shall be mashing up to make 180sqn and some seats to replace the missing ones. So I now have no excuse to get a move on!! More soon Simon
