Grot herd assembled

I have managed to finish assembling the Grots. I’m really looking forward to painting them when I am back at home next week.

I’ve tried to add a picture here, bit the lighting is poor, and the camera I used is of even lower quality..

Slowly I step forwards

I’m slow at putting together and painting models, and I don’t spend as much time as I would like doing either, but this is what happens when you are a Dad with diverse interests..

So, my progress has been that I have assembled another three Gretchin, with just one to go. If I can get any paint on them before I leave Ireland I will be happy!

Surprises can be informative

This Christmas, for the first time in many years, I received a gift of Games Workshop miniatures.

My dearest girlfriend has long known of my hobby, but I’ve always resisted giving hints to her about models that I would like. I’ve been more interested to find out which she would choose for me.

This year she braved the local GW and picked out a box of Ork Gretchin. She said that these were the models she saw that had the most character – in particular having facial expressions that varied from the standard grimace.

To say that I am overjoyed is no exaggeration. So far six of the delightful blighters are assembled along with their runtherd.

While on my Christmas holidays I am also working on the High Elf Mage from the Island of Blood set, and a pair of Assault on Black Reach tactical marines that I am painting for my step-nephews.
