Nice job though.  We're always our own worst critics.

Been working on the next squad of cultists.  So far, the steel parts are finished, and I have moved on to the brass stuff.  Brass base color is done.

Got the metalic coat on now.

I had hoped to have the cult finished by my birthday, I don't think I'm on track for that anymore.

Thank goodness the rumors I never heard, about HF being sold, aren't true.  According to Sal's post from FB, I think.

 :lmao: I figured as much, when I saw the upcoming birthday list hacked off.

My first thought was something you'd find in a rotting log in Africa.  Can't wait to see it finished.

Yeah I've heard stories about shipping to and from Italy.  I'll never do based on what I've heard.

Before I get on with this, a bit of back story is necessary.

Lead piles tend to grow by themselves... honest... :paranoid2:

Lead is self replicating.
Plastic triply so.

Indeed.  I just bought a plastic kit, now I find that there are three more of the same series on their way to me. :shock:

The last two that I was waiting for came today.  I've known one lady at the post office for a couple of years.  We'll call her C.  When I picked the box up today C started asking questions about shipping charges.  The box was shipped from Japan on Feb 23 and delivery was attempted at my house on Feb 28.  I live in Canada if you're wondering.  I chose EMS shipping when I ordered, which is an express shipping with tracking.  I was charged 2800 JPY for shipping.  In CAD it comes to around $30, 19.89 GBP as reference.  The ladies were quite suprised that the shipping was so low.  So, C asked if I wanted to know how much it would have cost to send the box from Canada to Japan with the same shipping features, so I said sure why not.  WTF is Canada post doing?  They wonder why people aren't sending parcels and things much anymore?  The box measured 37cmL x 23.5cmW x 17cm H and weighed less than half a kg.  $195 CAD for express tracked shipping to Japan. :blink:  126 GBP!  Who the  :swear: would pay that?!? :shrug: 

So, Penfold my friend, we got a good price to send the box that's on it's way to you now.  Good thing it's small and light.  This is the reason I try and ship everything I sell/trade by small packet air.  Unfortunately, small air doesn't have insurance anymore.  Insurance would now nearly double the cost.

Just thought I'd share what I learned today.  Now I have these projects

Stop tempting me with stuff!!  Oh well, if I give in, atleast teams are smaller than a whole cult.

No I haven't Inso.  But while I was painting them they felt like they should be a tough leathery hided kind of worm.

Here we go.  The twelve worms from Trollforged, finished finally.  There are a lot of pictures.  My favorites are the green ones.
Let me know what you think.














921
Currently working on bases.  Kept the purple visible on the green worms.  Pics maybe tomorrow.

922
I've been painting for what must be six hours so far today.  All of each type of worm are now at the same stage.  The browns are ready for basing the others need eyes and basing.

923
Finally some more wips of the demon worms.  The newest three were freshly primered for the photo.  I've only started the mouth parts on the green and brown ones.
