The Helping Hand Challenge (repost)

A repost of  a challnege set up by Duke of the Blood Keep and Minis by Finch which I intend on joining in.

Both sites are excellent insperation for old school gaming and painting, and on with the repsot:-

For those who don’t know about Minis by Finch, it’s an excellent site full of beautifully painted minis by a chap called Finch. We’ve both admired each others work for years and I thought it would be cool to do something together, so I came up with the Helping Hand Challenge.
Our aim is to paint one miniature from Otherworld’s DAB 4 boxset a month starting in June 2014 and finishing in May 2015.
However, we’d like to spread the love and open this challenge out to other bloggers too, so here are the rules:
    1. You must own the DAB4 Boxset
    2. You must own a blog
    3. You must paint one miniature a month in the order shown below
    4. You must post your results on the last day of each month
    5. You must include a link to each other participating blog
That’s it.
This is the order:
June Porter
July Mule Handler
August Mule
September Linkboy
October Scribe
November Pack Bearer
December Squire
January Lantern Bearer
February Dwarf Merc
March Crossbow Merc
April Spearman Merc
May Sergeant
(it’s also the order the minis appear on the card sleeve on the set)
If you want to join in please post a link to your blog in the comments with the words “I’m in” (if you miss two consecutive months I will remove you from the participants list). I will update this on June 1st with a full list of participating blogs so everyone knows who is playing along.
And most of all, have fun and enjoy painting some beautiful models.

Welcome aboard.

To give credit where it's due, this is Chris's brainchild. I just agreed to get my butt in gear & paint a few things.

Dragon - Part Two

Very limited progress this month.

I have cleaned up the base dragon but have not yet started pinning. In respect to the base I added some green stuff to give the impression the treasure was piled up on a dungeon floor.

New set of Mordheim Buildings

Last month I finished off my second set of GW Mordheim buildings. Both sets now complete, just need to get around to playing some games.

A corpse of Vampires

Back before it was trendy I loved Vampires, the scary, evil serial killer types. Not your more modern shiny, vegetarian reformed serial killer types who have human girlfriends and deny their true nature. Think Salam's Lot, Dracula, Anno Dracula, 30 Days of Nights, Let the right one in, I am legend (which I must re-read), Martin the vampire, Ultraviolet, Near Dark, Byzantium, and perhaps the early Anne Rice stuff.

So over the years I seemed to have amassed and painted a few starting back with the original citadel FF58 - Vampire through to more modern such as Otherworld Miniatures more recent UD10 - Vampire.

I still have a few unpainted (in fact some still blister packed) but what follows is a gallery of the ones done to date.
