Rackham Animistic Shaman on a Brontops...WIP1

Well here it is in it's early stages. This a Animistic Shaman on a Brontops from Rackham (sorry Brent, maybe next one). I really love this model and it is one of my all time favorites.I think it might actually be my favorite mounted model.
This belongs to the Orcs of Bran O Kor which is an army I played for a while in Confrontation (god I love that game). We don't play it much, but it does get drug out from time to time when the locals get bored of 40K/WFB/Warmahordes or whatever we are pushing. I play Alchemist of Dirz most but I have a sizable collection of several other armies and this is part of that collection.

Still here

I am still here. Unfortunately I have not been doing much hobby related. See I get in funks when it comes to the hobby. Any of you that come to this site more than once have probably seen that. This last one has been the worst. Normally my hobby work is driven by what I am playing. Recently though I have not really felt like playing anything. WFB has my interest a bit, but I have no idea how long that will last. Even if it does last I don't really feel like working on anything for it.

So yesterday my wife wanted to spend some time at here parents house. She has recently bought a 67' Mustang and her and her father have been working on it. That leaves me with nothing to do, but she still wants me to go with her. So I packed up some stuff to work on.

In digging though my minis to find a project I settled on one of my favorite miniatures of all time. You will soon see what it is but for now that is all I will tell you. I spent a good portion of the day pinning and cleaning the model. I do intend to once again create a scenic base for the model. While I was cleaning the model I had some plaster poured into basic molds so I can break it up and use it on the base. This model is for one of the armies I play for one of the games I play so it will need to be on a standard base but I intend for it to be a lot more dynamic.

I hope to have some WIPs up for you soon.

Dark Age Whisper: WIP....scrapped

So this model has been scrapped. The more I worked on it, the more I felt like I did not like it. Since I normally will force my self to work on models this one is going back in the box. I will push the base to the side for now and I may try to find a use for it later.

Big question now is what to work on.

Dark Age Whisper: WIP

Not a whole lot going on around here. Fighting the urge to start some WFB and struggling to find time to paint. I did manage to get a small amount of work on the Whisper model I am working on.
I finished building the base and I blocked out some of the color on model itself. Other than that not a lot to say.
