Paint Table Saturday 220th edition !

Paint Table Saturday 220th edition !
 Welcome to paint table 220 !

I'm currently working on some Nurglings. Base color & washes are done on the skins. Now I've started on the details. Lots of work still to do on these little buggers !
And now some other matters. I've noticed I'm getting more and more frustrated with people in the miniature community. I'm sick and tired of people who lie and bend the truth. It goes from " I finished it in an afternoon " or " I used this and that color " and you know of experience that it aint so.
And how many use photo-shop programs to enhance their pictures ( A lot ! )
And the worst kind of all : reviewers that aren't honest ! Glorifying the manufacturer when they don't deserve that good a review. And this all for some free miniatures and to get a bigger audience so companies give them more miniatures to review. 

I do reviews too and I've never said anything that I don't back up a full 100 %¨or deleted a comment of a fellow blogger just because it wasn't positive enough ! Everybody has the right to express their thoughts ! 

So fellow painters & miniature enthusiasts , don't believe everything they tell you. 
If the pictures look to good to be true. They're either painted by a pro or photo-shopped !
And never delete a comment of a fellow blogger ! All have the right to comment even if it's not what you or the manufacturer that provided your miniatures want to hear !

So now that that is off my chest , I wish you all a great weekend / lots of painting and see you all next week for another paint table on Saturday !

High Elves : Silverhelms finished !

Yesterday I finished this High Elves Silverhelms regiment. And now I had some time to take pictures.
 They're painted in my first color scheme (pink).
It took me forever to paint them as I have them about 10 years now. I painted one then and stopped as I wasn't happy how it looked. And now 10 years later I'm very happy with the result.
 I hope it doesn't take another 10 years to finish my second group. But for now I'm good.
Maybe later this year...
Painted in 2018 : 9

Year Overview 2017 !

Year Overview 2017 :

January : 10
February :  2
March : 57
April : 31
May : 20
June : 15
July : 16
August : 22
September : 28
October : 8
November : 17
December : 17

Total : 243

Another year has ended and as I set no goals for 2017  I'll compare them with the year before (2016).

First goal of 2016 was paint 200 mini's and I painted 243 mini's in 2017 , so COMPLETE !
Second goal of 2016 was buying only 150 mini's and in 2017 I bought almost 1000 mini's. 916 for the record. A bit of a hording problem , I think.... FAIL
And the last goal of 2016 was making scenery / terrain. In 2017 I made lots of scenery pieces / terrain. So COMPLETE.

I collected data since the start of this blog and now I'll share it with you.
Painted mini's per year :
2011 : 116
2012 : 84
2013 : 125
2014 : 210
2015 : 275
2016 : 200
2017 : 243
2018 : ???

So this was the year overview of 2017 ! ( No mosaic pictures this year as all free programs that could make these are no longer free. And I refuse to pay !) 
Again I'm setting no goals for this year and hope the enjoyment of painting will make me paint even more , better , faster , etc...
So we will see next year how it went !

Dwarfs : Female Hammerers finished !

I finished these female Dwarf Hammerers on the last hours of 2017...
I painted them in the same color-scheme as my Dwarf Doomcrushers ( Hammerers from Avatars of War )
I converted them with hammers to match with my Hammerers & I like these weapons more than the ones they had.
 So these are the last mini's of 2017 and bring the final total on 243 for 2017 !
Painted : 243

Paint Table Saturday 217th edition ! A very Happy New Year 2018 ! ! !

Paint Table Saturday 217th edition !
 Welcome to paint table 217 !
Let me start by wishing you all a very Happy New Year 2018 ! I know we're not there yet , but it's nice to be early for once.
 So I'm ending this year with lots of mini's on the table. I tryed to finish the 10 female Dwarfs from Scibor that I converted with bitz of the Hammerers box. But with all the festivities I'm not sure I will make it before midnight to finish them and make them count for 2017. They're 90% finished , just some minor details like the eyes & gems left to paint. And making the bases of course.
For the rest no progress on all other mini's as this was the only group I worked on since the completion of my Myphitic Blight-Hauler this week.

That's it for 'Paint Table Saturday' 2017 !!!
I hope to welcome you all next week for a new year of 'Paint Table Saturday' !
See you all in 2018 !
