Buy plenty of Matron's sculpts now!

If he keeps using the chainsaw, the value of his work will soon go up.

The Goblin War Horde begins to gather...



Top right; Trolls.
Then from left to right going down the picture - Archers, Scouts, Empty base for another unit of archers (figures ordered !), Bolt Shooters, 2 units of Wolf Riders (not yet assembled), Shaman (will get plenty of scenic stuff to fill up the base), Warriors with spears fronted by Orcs (will perhaps give this unit "Shieldwall"), Chieftain, another warrior unit and three more on the next row.

I have also ordered some giant spiders for an interesting unit with the skirmish ability.

A close-up of the chieftain's unit:


Lots of painting to be done !  :D

Very nice.

It's interesting that you appear to be gluing the figures onto the base before painting.  I'm thinking of taking that approach so i'll be interested to read/see how it works out.

I won't glue all of the "close order" stuff on straight away, just half the figures to make it easier for painting.

I've enjoyed sorting out the units but painting may take a while. Unfortunately this is about 143rd on my painting project list.

How do you get into the nooks and crannies between the figures?

To be honest it is why I base the way I do. All of the Sudan stuff on both sides and medieval stuff were all stuck down first.

I don't.  We're talking rank and file here (and this won't be to everyone's taste), I only paint what I can get to but you'd be surprised how little gets missed".

Works for me :)

As for elites, commander etc; I paint individually.

I always glue everything first, then base, then paint.
