Instead of sculpting, I have been painting and have managed to finish the first two walkers for the first wave of Visitors:

I am happy with their current state but will add a further highlight when I have finished all of the walkers... that way I can maintain the momentum by not having to faff about with highlights. All I need to do now is finish the next two walkers and then I get to treat myself with some troops... and that means starting the next wave.
In other Visitor news, I have started to convert the hover chariots for the powered armour heroes but I haven't got very far. Speaking of the heroes, I have been busy on E-Bay trying to get hold of the miniatures to act as the base for them... and have had a spot of mixed luck. Yes; I have managed to get hold of two but I managed to spend far too much money in the process so as happy as I am to get hold of the miniatures, I am pretty sad about the price. I am genuinely gutted... but hey... it's only money, right?
All this Eldar activity (walkers, dreadnoughts, weapon platforms etc.) brought to mind my Eldar collection; specifically my Howling Banshees. In a fit of lunacy, I bought a Jain Zar Phoenix Lord and have been painting her up. I won't be painting her in Eldar style and the 30 Banshees that I also have in an unpainted state will be painted in a similar way... eventually. I have decided that Jain Zar will just tick along and get paint when I fancy with no time limits or anything and it is working so far. One day, I'll show some pix :).
That is about it today.
See you from the foxhole!
