More grist for the mill.

Hello again. It's been a while but welcome to Inso's World again.

Since the last time I posted, things have been pretty settled and have ticked along better since I have been allowed to go on unnecessary journeys, riding by bike. If I get bothered and have the time, I can just jump on my bike and potter over to look at the sea... which has improved my demeanour greatly.

From a hobby perspective, I have been very busy sculpting more Space Dwarfs. First, I needed to sculpt a couple of extra heads on Lasgunner 2... then I set out to sculpt another (advancing) Lasgunner and two Special Weapon Troopers. Well, I got the two conversions finished... and finished the Advancing Lasgunner but stalled on the Special Weapon Troopers... so I started (and finished) a Comms Specialist and a second Sergeant. Finally, I managed to find the right motivation and finished the two Special Weapon Troopers... but I still have to sculpt their separate weapons (they are currently WIP and are a Meltagun, Plasmagun, Grenade Launcher and Flamer). It all sounds a bit confusing so here are a few pix:

The Group, Including the two Lasgunner Conversions (Click the Pic!)

The 'Weaponless' Special Weapon Troopers (Click the Pic!)

So you see, I haven't been idle. I am gradually getting the Special Weapons sculpted but they take a while because they are small, difficult to hold and need tiny bits sculpting before a lengthy drying time... so it is very much "little and often". However, that said, I am looking forward to sending these off to Macrocosm Miniatures (when they are finished) so that I can get some copies back and have them available in the store, for everyone to enjoy.

I hope you have enjoyed the show and tell today.

See you from the front of the queue!
