Next up Infinity-wise will be William Wallace and some more Wulvers, but before that I'll take a break from Infinity to paint up the 30th Anniversary Space Marine along with the original 1986 model.

I've (almost) finished my World Eaters Legion Centurion.
The base model is the limited edition Legion Centurion from Forge World. I've added Butcher's Nails made from plastic rod and Green Stuff to his head, a MKIII World Eaters shoulder pad and a plasma pistol from the Khorne Berzerkers set.
This is also my first time doing battle damaged armour and I'm quite pleased at how it's turned out.

Lamenter Captain is nearly done! Just need to finish the backpack and base. Hurrah!
I have just started playing Infinity and have the Caledonian Highlander starter set ready for priming.
I am also enthusiastically embracing Age of Sigmar and am combining elements of the Khorne Goretide with the forces of Grandfather Nurgle in the form of some Putrid Blightkings, Plaguebearers, Nurglings, and a sorcerer who is so old he's a couple of mm shorter than everyone else and made of lead. I also have an ancient Champion of Khorne who I may use as a Lord in place of the dude from the AoS box. Also, I am finally getting around to painting a load of Vampire Counts stuff.
AND I've just bought my first Forgeworld model: the limited ed. Legion Centurion who I will be painting in World Eaters colours.

So, thanks to the system by which virtual money is exchanged for actual goods I bought the 2012 Games Day model off The Pirate Viking. My intention is to use him in my Lamenters army.
But this post is mainly about Finecast as this is my first and possibly only encounter with it.
What strikes me immedately is how many holes there are. Nothing drastic, but enough to make me go 'huh, time to get the green stuff out'. But the flipside is how easy it is to work... I mean, I'm used to struggling with trying to convert metal minis, but this stuff is easier than plastic.
The level of detail does not appear to me to be what was promised by GW, but it's still pretty good.
More when it's stuck together and green stuffed.

Long time, no blog. I rediscovered my creative energy but it all went into guitar stuff... but the combination of an impending Apocalypse battle, plus increased positivity in general means it's painting time! One boyz mob done, only 3,400 points to go.
