Salamanders commission cont............

Hello once again my fellow bloggers, and thanks for sticking with me all this time.

I have finished the Salamanders Command Squad complete with aftermarket bits as per the customers wishes.
I really like how these guys came out especially the standard and Lightning claw Veterans.

Well there is no rest for the wicked and I have more Salamanders in the works in the shape of Terminators.

This is the current state of them, they need highlighting and all the detail painting in and they will be complete.
There are 6 of them mainly so the Heavy Flamer and Assault cannon can be swapped based on their intended use, and the Chainfist is in there just add some bite!

The next model I will be working on is a Death Company Dreadnought, the Blood fists and Talons just slot in and out on plasticard rods.
Unfortunately the kit won't make both sets fully so I left the Thumbs off the Talons and filled in the recess.

Stay tuned for updates in a few weeks on this chap.

Also before I forget click here to see my models put to good use by Sandy in his campaign!

Hello once again.......I am still alive........just!

I would like to apologize for dropping off the face of the Earth for a while, sorry guys!
I had a real kick in the sacks (figuratively speaking that is), with my day job being cut back to 4 shifts and my overtime being cut, put my whole mortgage and the life I was accustomed to was suddenly gone!

Then I received the news that my Nan had been diagnosed with that most discusting of illnesse's..cancer! the same thing that took my mother from me only 2 years ago.
Sadly she only lasted 3 weeks from the diagnosis, god rest her soul.

I have since then found another day job working with my brother in law and we have got life back on track, though it's not quite as bright and interesting as it was.

I will be returning to the world of miniatures and painting, and to ease my way in and lighten the mood I went to Salute 2011 at the Excel centre.

The following Photos are not mine but they really showcase the show, and I would like to thank the chap who took them for doing such a thorough job. (I really need a new camera my photos were pants!)

I really enjoyed the day out and even met a few friends from The Overlords and I was even interviewed for their show podcast!!
I will definately go next year with more cash, it's a fantastic place to see a tonne of game systems on display as well as more figures than you can shake a stick at.

stay tuned for more updates.

All the best Munky
