The bell came out really well. I like how the OSL came out. The only thing that bugs me is the placement of the Gray Seer. Is the model designed so he is standing on the bell? If so that simply doesn't make sense because when the bell swings back he will be casting at his own dudes, or simply fall off. I think it would look better to have him standing on top of the bell carriage, but I haven't physically seen the bell so I could be wrong.

Funny that's the way the bell is :) I imagine he is just hopping around the Bell like a lunatic.

I dig how in a setting where giant, muscled fungus men ride Mad Max cars and use their own teeth as currency, the concept of little engineering dudes with beards was considered a step too far down the aisle of silliness.

He's supposed to retreat to the top of the bell so he can't be stabbed. But yes, I imagine he moves all around.

It looks good Dez. Makes me want to paint a Skaven Army. I think that's the reason I love Warhammer so much, there aren't many armies in the game I don't like the look of.

Here are some close ups of the back banner. You may notice I had repainted the banner itself in the pics above.

All right, only 19 more days until the tournament and tons of models to go!

Here are some HPA WIP:

So I finally sat down tonight, drank some beer, and started building some Gutter Runners. I still need to GS some cloaks, and I still have a bunch more to build. It's a start, and I was motivated since my Airbrush has broken again.

I made the slings out of thin strips of plasticard and rocks I broke up with my clippers. I got the rocks at Ikea, I think they are for plants but they are awesome for basing.

Nice work on the gutter runners. I really like how the sling turned out.

Thanks Kevin!

So I painted a Night Lord, kinda testing out some ideas. On looking at it, I kinda get a Van Gogh vibe haha.

Great painting Dez! I also love the custom cloaks cloaks slings. Its not easy making good looking weapons for such tiny models.
