Fortunately, the pictures still work if you 'right click and view image in a new tab' on each of the placeholders... so they aren't completely gone.

It doesn't make it any less infuriating though :(

Really. Well that is $h!t. Do you reckon that has happened to everyones account (better check a few of my posts) I've been thinking of changing from photobucket for a while now as the amount of ads etc on it make it so slow to use.


Yeah this is across the board.  A few Etsy type earners have been knocked for six because of it, they don't earn enough to pay the fee's and after years of building a market Photobucket has decided to turn its users into income...

I suspect that an alternate hosting site will pop up and hopefully Photobucket will relent before losing it all because of their greed.

It's been a while... but you may notice a shop link in my signature below...

The halfling snipers turned into these:

Someone mentioned mini Wookies (Ork 56 on Frothers) but I didn't want to be a copy-cat so I made something different :) :



Seeing as sales have dried up, it makes sense to do something else with them :)

In other news, I have actually started painting my Squat army... I know... crazy talk :D !

Anyway, here's a rough base-coat on my three Berserkers (count as Ministorum Priests):



Next will be a tidy up, wash and highlight... but I'll be doing that one at a time (so I can see finished progress :) ).

The very first painted Squat for the army; a Berserker:

Cheers :)

The hammer is from a Mantic Forgeguard (in heavy powered armour) so it is definitely a chunk :) ... but I reckon a berserker can channel his inner rage to heft it in battle OK :)

The next one:

lol, I love that he prefers to pistol-whip enemies rather than shoot them. That's a berserker!

It's a slight homage to a very old GW fantasy slayer... but I thought a pistol-club suited better than a pistol as a ranged weapon... and it helped to show just how mad he was :D

Now that I have some snipers, a Jokaero and some priests, it's high time I got my arse in gear and started painting some of the basic troops... so that is what I have done :) . Here is the first (rough base-coat) on the first squad of No.2 platoon:

I've started the next veteran squad. These will all have berets. The main weapons will be shotguns and meltaguns. There will be a comms trooper and the sgt will have upgraded close combat weapons (probably a bolt pistol and power weapon):

The troops are now armed so next up will be a layer of putty on the wire before I start sculpting the arms properly :) :

Remember this?:





Well, all of the leg casts have now been sold and I won't be casting any more. That said, I have had an offer for the green so it is likely that it will be sold and may be cast up by someone else in the future. Sadly, there wasn't the demand for me to keep casting them :( .
