The snipers have all had their basing tabs added:



They have been packed up and will be sent to my caster tomorrow, for casting in July/August (he's a busy chap). Once they are cast up, I will be able to sell some :) .

Yep... I'll echo those Beefcake sentiments :)

The FoD has been my favourite forum since 2004... 13 years! That may be why I am the top poster on here :)

I'd like to thank Andy for keeping this going for as long as he has... he didn't need to and he could have done without the additional expense so... Cheers Andy, it has been a blast and I have appreciated the effort, very much.

Sadly, forum traffic has reduced all over the place (not just on the FoD) since Facebook turned up and that, sadly, means that a lot of forums are like ghost towns nowadays. I am not surprised that alternative arrangements are being made.

I have made some great friends and contacts as a result of the FoD and I will be forever grateful for that.

Best wishes to all of my FoD allies and best wishes to the future of the FoD, in whatever format it takes.

Most of all... Cheers, Andy :) ... it's been a heck of a ride :)

I'm cancer free and the testing has revealed that I don't carry the defective gene. It has been a really troubling year and a half but there's only one way from here :)

That is wonderful news! I am so pleased for you :) ... NICE ONE!

Hopefully... if they are viable for casting (they should be... they'll be resin). I've talked to Rob over at Hysterical Games and warned him that they will be going his way at some point :)

Four snipers finished, with a prone one on the cork:

They were spyglass, definitely.

The little 'Noblin' is called Hurk and is cool... and so is Brother Barnaby (I think that was his name).

I have a few of the Noblins:

Yep :) Very WIP at the moment... it's just a practice sculpt for a commission.

Three Halfling snipers are now finished with a fourth, kneeling one, on the cork :) :

Well... now I've 'scratched that itch', I can get back on track with a bit of sculpting so I am now 2 finished and one WIP, where Halfling snipers are concerned:

The only reason I have put together all the pictures is because people asked me too :)

I don't think that the two kits (Kharadron and old 1980's Squat) are compatible at all... however some people disagree but that is their choice. I personally won't be using any in my army and haven't really been enthused by them at all really... so they are staying in their box for now.

I think that, with a little effort, they could look great but that would mean bigger heads, sci-fi weapons and a toning down of the 'steampunk' elements... but I am not into doing that at the moment because I have plenty of more pressing things to get on with :)

I bought some of the new Kharadron Overlords today and thought I'd share a few scale pix. Before I do, I reckon that they are a bit big for this current army but have potential for a future faction... here they are:









Definitely food for thought... :)

The first one is finished and the second one is now on the cork :) . You will need to open the image in a new tab or something like that, for the 'actual size' image to be correct :) :

Remembering that the Forum of Doom exists and I can remember my password, after a very long time away!  :boing:

It's still ticking along :)

So... to keep the ball rolling, I have now finished adding beards to the full platoon which means that next, I will be adding weapons and back-packs (as required) :) :

... bit of both really... but I really get a kick out of seeing a unit completed... I guess it's a bit like climbing what can only be perceived as a mountain and then reaching the summit, knowing that it's downhill all the way from then on :)

When I was working on my tunnel fighter Grymn, I didn't have the same problems because I didn't have such a structured idea of what I wanted to achieve... it was only after I had converted around half the troops (and painted them) that I started working on a structure and getting specific models converted. Fortunately, the tunnel fighters were mostly head swaps with a little bit of armour added to their backs... these Squats are a little more involved and more structured as well.

The good thing is that I can use my Tunnel Fighters as a good example of spending four years converting to end up with an army I am proud of (apart from the unfinished command vehicle... which is packed away somewhere... in amongst all the other unpacked boxes from the move... :( )...

That many arms must get tedious!
Looking forward to seeing them done.

Yes... yes they do :o ... very...

Not nearly as much as I am :D

This is the current state of the third platoon. I have just got to add beards, packs and weapons to the front 15 and they will all be at the same standard. The front five will be the command squad the other twenty will make up two infantry squads:
