Paint Bench: 28mm Gondor Army Re-basing Project Done

Finally starting my Lord of the Rings armies. I have a bunch of Gondorians...maybe 800 or so to do. They should go fast.

I stayed up till about 2 am last night and finished these. Then I started on Dol Amroth and Rohan.

Not actually re-basing, but re-painting the bases to look better. Working on my entire collection before I start gaming again...done about 1000 so far. Now I am on my Macedonians.

Warhammer 40K Valkyries

Here is my collection of my Warhammer 40K Valkyries.

I made these. Not the best paint jobs, but I can always go back and repaint them better since I have a better set of skills now.

These were bought off Ebay with a lot of drama involved. They were broken bad, but I fixed them back up and now they are flying again. Very nice paint jobs.

Another set I bought off Valkyries off Ebay, I like they very nice detail.

Paint Bench: 28mm Elf Re-basing project (Done)

Repaint Time: 1 day (233 Minis)

I am repainting all the bases on my Elf army. Most of them are already done, but I guess I want everything to be uniform as far as basing. The brown base makes the figure look a lot better.

Paint Bench: 28mm Orc Re-basing project (Done)

Repaint Time: 1 day (400 minis)

I decided to repaint all of my figures starting with my orcs that are all on my Siege of Gondolin table. Along with all of my elf army. Then I will just keep going. I think I have about 5000 figures to repaint the bases. I posted some pics of some figures on TMP and someone suggested that I paint my bases differently. So I did, and I really like the new way I paint them. So now I have to go backwards and repaint everything. Crazy. I did that once when I decided to start washing figures. So I went back and washed everything....took me about a week or so. 

Simple upgrade makes them look a lot better.

Repainting all the orcs and elves on the table, as I organize it for battle.

Paint Bench: More 28mm Great Orcs by Black Tree Design Finished!

Paint Time: 6 days

I love these figures so much I had to have some more. I can see myself buying a lot of these soon. I use them as Trolls or bosses in my orc army. They paint up nicely.
