Time to stop the hobby ADD: More Grey Hunters complete. And more comments on hobby progress.

Last couple of days I've been working on the next 5 Grey Hunters.  I really, really like how these guys are coming out.  Doing them with paint chips and dirt is really going in a new direction for me, as my Blood Angels are pristine.

I am doing them in the swamp basing of my Tau, but only better..again, several years of hobby practice will do that. Not only do I have better skills, but simply better ideas. More exposure to models, bases, and generally seeing more stuff gives you more data to pull ideas from and/or copy. Nothing wrong with copying ideas you see online.  My snow angel night goblin was something I saw online somewhere, but that's no reason not to do it.

So one of the guys I put in a small stream of swampy water, based off the way I did water on my big swamp terrain piece which is green and orange under some gloss varnish. Money has never been there for real water effects, but I really want some soon.

Anyway next project is a Dark Angels Rhino for the Freebootaz radio Toys for Tots charity army.

And a group pic with all my complete Space Wolf models so far.
