Space Wolves WIP

I got a small lightbox to use to make pretty pictures, so here's a test picture of my current Space Wolves WIP. They're coming along well, what with the few time I get after work during the weekdays.  I'll probably be stopping at the local game store and stocking up on some Reaper paints they just got in stock.

My Workstation

So it's not the best of workstations, especially by the cats and their tower, but I get some nice sunlight in the area.  I'm still getting things set up so I'm comfortable with the setup.  Ikea is great for finding some interesting lamps.  I've got one more lamp from Ikea that I need to set up but that requires more work.  I also need to set up my airbrush equipment at some point.

I've also been able to get some time in to work on my Space Wolves and they're coming along nicely.  I've also come to the realization that I should really get some real paint like Vallejo, Citadel or Reaper.  Folk Art paint is good, but I've tried my friend's Citadel paints and I can definitely feel and see a difference between the two.  Does anyone have any thoughts or preferences on the different paint brands?  I'm thinking I'm going towards Vallejo which will be great since the local store will soon be stocking them.

Settling In and Slot Boxes

I don't know how it is with other people, but it takes a "while" to get settled in and unpacked in an apartment for my fiance and I.  So while it's been about two weeks since we've moved into the new apartment, I've still got boxes, a bookshelf and a dinner table to unpack and set up.  On the plus side, I finally have a spot set up for my little workshop which I'll post pictures of later.  I'll finally be able to finish my current batch of Space Wolves and hopefully get started on the other miniatures waiting to be assembled and painted.

New Year, New Apartment and Some New Models

It's 2012 and I'm now in a new apartment.  Boxes are everywhere and it's a mess, but I've got my main essentials, the Internet!  I'm looking forward to expanding and customizing my workspace as my previous one was simply the dining table.  Once I'm all set up, I'll finally be able to finish up my Space Wolves.

The other day I finally got a package I ordered, some miniatures from Reaper that I'm painting for a friend for his D&D sessions.  The dragon on the left is mine though :D  These are my first metal minis, so it will be interesting working with these.

So I'm currently in the process of moving to a new apartment which means the apartment is a mess and all of my paint stuffs are boxed up right now.  Which also means I won't get to do any painting this week and likely most of next week as well.  In the meantime, I'm working on changing the design of the blog and playing a little bit of Warhammer 40K: Space Marine. Pretty fun and enjoying the storyline right now, haven't played a shooter game in a while.  My stats on Steam. I hadn't realized I've killed so many orks.

My First 40K Army

It wasn't until recently that I've found Warhammer and the world of miniatures, which has sparked my interest to get back into painting.  I've never played the games, nor have an inkling of the stories and mechanics of the gameplay, but I guess I'll eventually get to it at some point.  Until then, I've started collecting some Space Wolves and Skaven to paint, here are some pictures of my first ever Warhammer 40k painted Space Wolves.
