Saturday Update.

It would appear that after eight little urban Grymn, Inso is fed up with painting little squares. It doesn't surprise me because he said that he didn't like painting them before he even started...I'm sure there is some logic there somewhere. ANYWAY, he sent me over this pic which is of a Grymn spotter for a small sniper unit that will be part of his other little project, the Desert veteran Grymn army:



From what Inso has said, the troops in this army will have a bit of variation in both colours and kit to make a change from painting such uniformed armies in the past. There are five more in the sniper unit and they are based and undercoated ready to go...so I guess we'll see them soon (ish).

Inso is away for a few days as a result of a training course so there will be no more hobby stuff until at least Thursday, when he returns. I doubt Thursday will see much going on because it is his birthday...so his family are likely to bother him a bit.

I have been reassured that the Urban troops are still top of the agenda and that the only reason the spotter was painted was so that he didn't get embroiled in the next squad of assault troops before he went away on his course.

The First of the Drop ships is in the process of conversion too. The front wing stubs have been trimmed somewhat and are in the process of being reshaped. I have been warned that a finished product hasn't been visualised yet so it may be a while before the final design gets created...we'll have to wait and see.

On to different news. Inso has started a sculpt for a competition over at Frothers UK for a Golgo Island character. More information will be forthcoming when I get it. One thing that has been said is that it will be a Dwarf super-hero. I'll be interested to see what he comes up with.

Well...that's it for now.

Catch you later!

Great to see the blog still up and about.

Looking forward to the drop-ship.

Ooo, a dwarven superhero! For a competition, too, so we might even see a finished product! ;)

Yep a Dwarven Super Hero...

...He will be finished but he is only wire at the moment as I am away from home for a while on a course...

If he gets released, you may even be able to buy one!

Obviously, he'll have to be one of the winners :).
