The 15mm Project


and a empty wallet...

So as you may have seen from Tuesdays POST that I fell hard for 15mm and while I'm still waiting for the CP Models Orcs to turn up I've ended up going on and buying a large chunk of bits and pieces

But.. But.. I HAVE A PLAN!

The plan is simple and allows me to get to paint small amounts and get the most from both the scale and cheapness. I'm going to build a number of small Gangs/Warbands of no more then 10 figures (To start with) and less for Elites.

No rules will be used when building these and I will be building to a common theme, whatever I like the look of and would love to paint.

I have 4 Warbands planned so far, you seen of them already my Space Ork Freebooters, well here's the next 3:

Along came a spider...

Well I have to say I'm well and truly buying random toys atm... On a impulse I've bought a Pro-painted WhFB Giant Spider for £5 on LAF, the seller also had a Giant Scorpion but was sold before I had a chance to nab it. But aye for £5 I just couldn't say no.

Sellers picture just a little edited by me.

The cheer myself up random buy or Why Chico starts up 15mm gaming

So as some of may know from this POST awhile ago that I have failing eyesight. As of today I now have a diagnosis of what is actually wrong and what I can expect going forward in life.

I have Ischemia (bad blood flow) and small haemorrhages in my eyes caused by Diabetes. Long story short is there is nothing which they can do and it'll only get worse, so blindness in the long term.

So partly to say fuck you to my failing eyesight and because of that evil monkey known as Space Cow Smith from Tales from Far Point and his wonderful 15mm I went and bought myself some 15mm (I bought some 15mm last week too to hide in a box for a few years but I guess that won't happen).

So what did I buy?

Challenge Week: Conversions!

Right It's time again for another Chico Challenge Week™, number 9! Now that we all have recovered from BOYL14 and have bundles of new ideas and projects underway.

This week It's all about conversions, be it a simple head/weapon swap  or rescuing that latest Ebay bargain. But even though it's about the conversions everything still needs to be painted (This is a painting challenge after all)

You have just under 1 week to plan before it kicks off, you get cracking!

Now the boring bit:

The Aftermath of BOYL14: Part 3 - Epic Um... Epic?

So day 3 of BOYL for myself was a large Epic game where I got gang raped. But before I show these pictures I'm going to show off my toys that I bought and traded for at the event :)

So I heard you liked Goblins..

So the Outcast/Chaos Greenskin force progresses some more, slow and steady with a few Greenies painted a day (There's 100's of the bastards, so a few a day is slow).

King Furtak and his Bodyguard so far.
As you an see quite a colourful unit/army, trying to take this out of my comfort zone of dark and dirty.

King Furtak Fartage - Outcast King

King Furtak Fartage

King Furtak Fartage or the Big Fart to his friends is a Goblin of major girth, so much so he travels with Bek his faithful belly bearer and Chefs Soop & Gore Dion.

Furtak once challenged the Infamous Grom of the Misty Mountains to a greased Squiglette eating contest which he promptly lost dew to Groms ability's from eating Troll meat.

Evil Space Dorfs - Concepts

So Mr Fimm from Oakbound Games has been commissioned by myself to design some Evil Space Dorfs.

Here's the first concepts please let us know what you think?

Foundry Giant Troll WIP

So a quick break from my BOYL14 update to bring you a WIP on my first figure being painted for BOYL15. It also happens to by one I bought at BOYL14 so quite suitable.

As we all know I'm colleting up a Chaos Infested Greenskin force, so what better then to have a large corrupted Troll? Ok.. 2 would indeed be better but another will be added to my lead pile at some point.

Anyway this big boy is by John Pickford and is a sculpt with such character.

There he is in his naked glory, ignore all the LE Fishmen.. they are for another project. And stop staring at my Dettol jar!

Arhhh what a wild ride that weekend was! Old lead, good friends, Toys & beer! First of all though I'd like to thank everyone who ran the event both are Foundry and people like but not limited too Gaj and Thantsants for all the hard work they put in.

Also like to thank everyone who gave me the many lifts to a from the hotel and coach station, they were a life saver! Not to mention those lovely chaps who gave me free toys :D

Last but not least everyone who turned up, you made the 3 days great!

Anyway enough dribble time for Judge Dread pictures:

Just when I thought I was done...

Yep in the last post I said I was done with Epic Scenery, well I was wrong.

Turns out my Daemonscape turn up the next days and the goodies within were cracked out the bubblewrap rather quickly.

I made a start on getting them prepped and half the bits of the final order is finished to go along with everything else already painted.
