Some of you may have been intrigued to know the reason for my absence from the old school scene, well I have been on my holidays (with wife, kids and in-laws) to Spain and have had not touched base with this blog, my Facebook group or the Bloodforum for many days. Having a bit of time away from work and hobby is always a good thing as it gives you the time to reflect on how things are going with your collecting and painting. I spent a week or so in Jaeva (or Xabia in Catalan) pondering how best to draw my Khorne army to a close, what to do next and if the many people I met or walked past, or sat next to, were secret Oldhammer fans. Perhaps I should have worn one of my t-shirts?
I didn't do any hobby. Though I did toy with the idea of taking some paints and miniatures with me, though the hassle of shifting the basics across the world was too great. I did read Zaragoz though, which was quite apt as the story was set in Estalia. I intend to do a post about the novel in the near future.
However, I was quite busy up to the point of holidaying and thought you might be interested to see what I have been working on. Namely, the final unit for my Khorne army, a monster of an eBay steal and a shield or two. So without much of a furtherado, let's have a look!
|Four thugs. All Khorne!|
|More thugs. More Khorne!|
|This was my first Fraser Grey inspired shield. I used the boss to form the nose though I shied away from enamels!|
To help with this I am after some specific models. After my first tumble with the world of trading, I've got loads of wonderful miniatures but nothing I can make a decent unit out of. These are what I am after. I am open to trades but would prefer to buy outright. This is what I am after, can anyone help?
