Saturday and the Horde is Taking Shape!

First of all, I'd like to welcome the latest follower of our humble blog; Bandit86. He has a blog as well and it is well worth taking a look (especially because it has Grymn in it). Welcome aboard!

From grey plastic to this in a few short days:

Inso seems to have been fairly busy and has managed to get all of his 20 Gaunts to this standard. They have been undercoated, base coated with Bubonic Brown and washed with Ogryn Flesh wash. The next phase is for the plates to be highlighted. Then it will be teeth and eyes, bases and varnish...and they will be finished.

These are not the only Tyranids in the box...there are three Warriors and a Carnifex with an additional plethora of Rippers but Inso is concentrating on getting the Gaunts finished at the moment.

As you can probably tell, they are only going to be tabletop quality and have had a scheme chosen that will enable them to be painted quickly but to a fairly acceptable level.

In other news, Hasslefree miniatures have updated their workbench page and Inso is enthusing about a certain 'Mystic Panda' miniature. Here is the link to the workbench page (the Panda is top left):

He reckons that it will make a perfect companion for his starship crew (which is still WIP):

There are a few interesting sculpts on the workbench and Inso is looking forward to a few...especially all the Grymn and little Megan in powered armour.

On a Grymn note, Inso recently received his order from Hasslefree and apart from a command squad and a platoon leader, he has his Grymn urban army all bought and ready for preparation. If only the mortar spotter on the workbench was ready to buy...

Well, that is about it for today.

Catch you later!
