Hello again dear readers!
Well, that is if I have any left after my rather long hiatus away from posting! A lot has happened in my life in the space of time since my last post. I have been working very hard to publish papers and get my thesis written up for one thing, and I have also had a wedding to plan... and actually get married!
Me and my (now) wife, Serena, tied the knot on the 27th of December 2017 and we are both very happy :).
Between work, future job hunting, marriage and spending time with Serena I have't had as much time to put into the hobby. So out of all my hobby outlets, it was blogging that suffered. However I have been very busy bustling away in the background painting miniatures for myself and others. So I have plenty to show you!
I am aiming to get slowly back into blogging with some drip feed regular content. For now I am aiming to post on a Monday and Thursday and then I will add extra posts as and when I can. Hopefully there will still be something to interest many of you, though I have resigned myself to the blog viewership and traffic being of a considerably reduced size.
Anyway, that's enough of my excuses for being absent!
Recently I acquired the Shadespire and as a break from my other projects and in a bid to do some overdue practise on skin tones, I painted Garruk's Reavers. Here's some close up pictures of them mostly finished!
These guys were painted over a couple of evenings and I was mostly trying to have a go at different skin types, rather than just rely on the same old formulas over and over. I'm quite pleased with how some of them have turned out, though I think I am most pleased with some of the scar tissue more than anything.
I need to tidy bits of them up and maybe add some blood splatter, though with the simpler paint style I have gone with I don't know if they will look better without it. Does anyone have any thoughts on that?
It's good to be back, I hope you are as pleased as I am.
