Recalcitrant Daze - Tats, Art Books and a Painted Junka.

So, that went well.

A highly productive week where I haven't touched a model. It's been that post holiday back to work nightmare week. Combined with a few other things it has meant I've done absolutely nothing hobby wise.

The only good news is that the 3D prints I had done for the Heavy Weapon teams have arrived. So this week I will (probably) be getting on with cleaning those up and getting some moulds and casts done. The mortar and missile launcher teams can them be re-built and finished off.

In other news my latest tattoo was finished off this week...

And in related art news I had the new sketch book by Karl Kopinski turn up. An excellent book from one of my favourite artists. I have always loved sketch work (hence the tat above), and a really nice touch is that in the first 1000 books Karl Kopinski is doing an original sketch inside it. I think he still has a few hundred left from the initial 1000 books, so if you act quickly you can get one with an original one off sketch inside as well.

You can find more info and order the book from Karl Kopinski's Facebook page.

To finish off I had a surprise this week when I had an email from the person who commissioned the last Ork build I did, namely this Junka...

He sent me a few pictures of the now painted Junka. It is very rare I get to see the commissions I do actually with paint on them so it was very nice to get the pictures.

Hopefully this week I will manage to pick up some models.

Fingers crossed.

Recalcitrant Daze - Back at the Grindstone.

I've been on holiday for the last week and before then I seemed to be doing work (as in real life work) all day, hence there not being an update on here for over three weeks.

Hopefully I can get back to the Militia now and get them finished off.

When I arrived home I discovered I had had something delivered while away, namely the paint rack by Massive Voodoo...only eight and a half months late...

I built it yesterday and sorted my paints out. I had to move the picture on the wall to fit it in. These aren't all of my paints, those for the airbrush are kept separate and at the moment at sitting under the shelf on the desk. I will have to knock up a little storage thing for them. They don't need to be on display with easy access like the other paints, when airbrushing I'll simply take the paint I need out ready to go.

Tomorrow I will try and get going on the Militia again - the artillery crew. Not looking forward to it.

In the meantime here are a few pictures from the holiday...(as I have nothing else to show).
