WINDOWS and DOORS!

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.

This week has been quite productive with lots going on so I won't waste any time and I'll get on with it.

After just over a year in our house, the windows and doors are being replaced. They were the bane of my life over the winter and I will be glad to see the back of the howling gales and damp that was a result of our terribly fitted windows and doors. This week, the fitters have been in and everything has been replaced apart from the back door and side panel (which will be getting done on Monday). The difference is amazing.

It's funny how a house full of tradesmen inspires a bit of work... as a result, I have been sculpting commissions and other bits and bobs... but sadly, not too much that I can show off yet. I do have this though:

It isn't too far along but it is a converted GW Cold One who will eventually become a sci-fi Lizard-man with heavy weapon. There are three more that will also get the sci-fi treatment but that will be in-between other sculpting work.

In other hobby news, I have been sent a couple of casts of my Berserker and last night, I decided to paint one:

His name is Steppen Odinson... and here is his story (you will need to open in a new tab/window to read it):

While I was painting the Berserker, I used one of GW's painting handles and I am really chuffed at how easy it was to use. I would recommend getting one and I think at £5.00, it is a bargain... well worth the money.

So... what's on the table at the moment? Well...
  • Commission: 5 Squat bodies.
  • Commission: Squat heavy weapon gunner.
  • Commission: Goblin leader.
  • Charity: Squat Living Ancestor.
  • My stuff: Lizard, 2 Bullgryn, Predator team (movie Squats).
What is my focus on? At the moment, in this order:
  1. Commission: Squat heavy weapon gunner.
  2. Charity: Squat Living Ancestor.
  3. Commission: Goblin.
  4. Lizard.
  5. Commission: 5 Squat bodies.
  6. Other stuff.
I would prefer all the commissions to be at the top but my mojo is just starting to reappear at the moment so I expect to be able to improve my commission rate very soon. That is just the way the cookie crumbles.

So... Monday will see the end of the window/door fitting and I can get a few things sorted out... which probably means 'house jobs' so my hobby time will reduce... but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

See you through clear windows!

The space lizardman reminds me a lot of the Loxatl from the Tanith 40k series. Very nice!

Cheers :)

This particular one is going to have mechadendrite tentacles, linked to a heavy weapon on his 'other' arm... I am trying to decide how to do it. It should be a fun little process :)

'Space lizards' has been on my mind for a very long time. I saw the image of a converted cold one and I thought "THAT'S the way to go about it"... the rest is as you see it.
