A Tale of Four Oldhammerers: Month 6.

As the cold northern Winter begins to make way for an equally cold northern Spring, the To4O project reaches the end of another month so it's time to glance over the results. I won't lie, I am glad it's a Leap Year as I was still painting right up to today. Another busy month leaves me relying on expensive models to see me through, leaving me with a timebomb down the line no doubt!

L to R on steps, level 5 champion for the Reapers (LA, DHW, Arcane Armour, 44 points), skeleton warrior (HW, S, 12 points), Grim Reaper (14 points). Flapping past is a 45 point Carrion. 125 points for the month.

I went a little over because I forgot about the Arcane Armour upgrade for the champ, in my head he was only 30-odd points.

The best one is the skeleton warrior, he was done first and early. The Carrion (deliberately minus rider, never liked the models) was supposed to look like a faded vulture with raw skin showing through, not sure I pulled it off 100% but it is better in the 'flesh' than against the stone tower in the photo at least. The Grim Reaper with the scythe was tough to paint, unusually so for an older Citadel miniature. His rags are all over the place and a bit misleading, this is made worse because he was miscast slightly (nothing serious).

All in all I''m happy with the way things are going. :)

Chico's slump in the charts is due to some poor health and misfortune, get well soon mate.

Points tally.

Paul: 12 points.

Steve: 9 points.

Chico: 7 points.

James: 6 points.

Thanks for stopping by!

Circle of Chaos Kickstarter. 72 hours to go.

If you are the sort of person to collect delightfully weird and intriguingly exotic miniatures, please follow the link to the Circle of Chaos Kickstarter and peruse the wares.

There's a lot of talent on display in this good old-fashioned collector's set and you even get a bit of narrative fluff thrown in for good measure (check the updates).

I'm having a Fry moment, take me there at once so I can throw money at this!

The minis are by seven different talented sculptors, take yourself off to the KS page for more details.

A bargain at £18 posted, even more so as a £15 add-on to the core set. The wonderful Ooko the Destroyer (AKA the Rhinotaur) is a truly massive metal mini by Jason Wiebe.
