Dreadtober painting and playing with oil

I didn't progress as well as I had hoped for in the Dreadtober challenge. I was supposed to be ready with the painting and the base this week but I have been slacking a bit to much. The major colors are there and the bases are somewhat ready but not at the point were I would be happy with it.
The coming week will probably not be that productive, with some upcoming events and work.
A picture of the current status, except bases are almost done.

I also gave oil washes a try, very interesting I have to say. The first guinea pigs were the Tiger family. Next will be the dreadnoughts, hopefully with a good result.
 One of the dreadnought bases also got a treat of oil blending, a pleasant and interesting way of painting I think. There will be more of this in the future.

Dreadtober - Build week

I joined the Dreadtober challenge hosted by https://brokenpaintbrush.com/
It seemed like a perfect challenge for me since I have four Dreads that has been ignored for too long. So I will join up with two participants, one Death Company Furioso and one heavy equipped with a twin-linked lascannon.
This week I picked them up and prepped a little bit, made the base for the heavy and glued some pieces together.

I also managed to prime them, but I had all my masking tape in the other house so I could not prime the black parts on the heavy dread.

This coming week they are supposed to have all the main areas painted.

Apartment project done

So, after almost four months our apartment is up for sale. Hopefully I'll have it sold soon so I can put that behind me. The add with some pictures on Hemnet: http://www.hemnet.se/bostad/bostadsratt-3rum-trosso-karlskrona-kommun-vastra-prinsgatan-20b-9669855
We have also moved in to a new house, a bit empty at the moment since we have furniture in the apartment and in the old house that we are going to sell in the near future.
I have a room that will be dedicated to hobby stuff in the new house but no desk at the moment so all the miniature projects are still packed, most of them at least. One box containing space marines, an old metal dreadnought and my Bushido guys had a small accident with the dread running rampage, molesting a bunch of marines and the snake samurais.

Anglo-Danish warband finished

Been a few weeks since they got finished but I have not had the energy to put up any pictures until now. I have been busy with a renovation project so not much time for painting at the moment. Soon I will move to another house so  guess another two months of moving, painting and fixing the apartment and houses.
But with no further ado, here is the bunch.

My SAGA-minis are coming along quite nicely, one point of berserkers are almost done and also two points of Anglo-Danish warriors are getting there. They are highlighted and the next step is to add some scrathes on the shield and the metal parts.

The berserkers are ready for basing, dirt and blood. I tried to do some green-stuffing on the guy with a head in his hand. He had a shield originally but the 'serks need no stinkin' shields!

I also had to try to paint some of my Spanish for War&Empire (FoG, DBA and what ever). I think they came out OK, the shields are a bit askew but I don't think anyone will notice.

Gebirgsjägers first platoon

Has been a while since I posted here, usually I just snap photos and put them on Twitter nowadays.
But here goes, a platoon of Gebirgsjägers! Some WIP pictures and a shot of the finished platoon. I'm happy with how they came out.

I really liked these sculpts, very good details. It would have been nice with some more action filled poses though, they are either very relaxed or firing.

Baals to the wall

After quite some time now I have managed to get my three Baal Predators done, just in time to make it for the ending of E Tenebrae Lux IV.
They will need some more details in some places but for now they are good.

Up next, some SAGA Vikings maybe?
