Well I'm back after taking a long break from the blog. I also got distracted by World of Tanks. Totally AWESOME!!! Highly addictive & easy way to burn 4 hours without realizing it.
Of course getting mini-me involved didn't help. He's so into tanks to begin with, and now I think he's better at the game than I am.
We've also started slot-car racing. Lots-o-fun too.
Back to miniatures.
Current project: Soota Boyz
Got them primed. Mixed up my orkflesh recipe. Painted skin.

Next step: start on the clothing.
In the meantime, here's a couple of shots of my version of Elric:
