Hobby Update – Citadel Wood and other.

Another month has passed with no activity on the blog. Well look on the bright side, at least I haven’t just been posting random drivel πŸ˜€.

I realised I should have posted my completed Wildriders but managed to delete the photos in a clear out of my phone without saving them anywhere first, so need to redo them. Doh!

I don’t mind admitting that I had a real hobby slump this month. The wood really didn’t inspire me (even with Azazels challenge) and so what did I do. Yep started a new army. Oooooo shiny!

Going with my normal trend I wanted something that was the opposite of the current flavour. Only one thing was in my head, monsters and that meant Lizardmen.

One start collecting box, combined with a Xmas special set, was added to the few I already owned and meant that I was now the proud owner of 2 Carnosaurs, 1 Bastildon, 6 Ripperdyctls, 50 odd skinks, 30 odd Saurus, 8 cold one Cav, a scarvet on coldone, Tetto’eko and Gor Rok. A decent fledgling force indeed. Expect to see more of this in the upcoming months and yes I’ll be running it as a monster mash!

I’m also pleased that I managed to get a burst of inspiration (I resorted to watching you tube) and basically finished the citadel wood in two nights of painting.

That was the final piece I needed to finish for my comp’ army and after a few comments from a few forum members, tied the wood into the army through the colour of the leaves. It was all pretty basic painting with copious amounts of dry brushing (or not so dry…) and washes, with some of the detail picked out.

  1. Nice work on that wood, the reddish leaves have come out really nicely. Good luck with those lizardmen, must confess I was tempted to get that box myself (common sense and careful budgeting prevailed but I’m still a little bit regretful!). I’ll just have to watch yours develop instead πŸ™‚

      1. Make sure you link it to February’s challenge post in the comments there, as I added an extra month of Terrain for Feb. My memory is completely shot right now, so I can’t guarantee I’ll remember anything in three weeks when I put together the February round-up. πŸ™‚
