What have I done!!!

Today I have picked up a few items I wanted to try out. No not more minis, but hobby items. I picked up some Gesso and black paint. Now this was not as cheap as the people on the net were saying, but it was not to bad. I also picked up some cheap brushes for the Gesso. The next thing I got came to me last minute in the craft store. I was looking for some thing to use for bases on my minis, they had some wood rounds but they were of mixed size and most I could not use. I then thought to look at buttons. Well there it was right there a bag of buttons. Now I did not buy these as they had to many small ones in the pack, but there were some that were the right size. I then went to the net when I got home and did a search for buttons, and sure enough I searched for 3/4 buttons bulk and found what I wanted. 140 buttons for $7.50, I ordered 2 packs as I have around 200 minis in 15mm that need bases. The photo shows them next to US money and I use Pennies any way, and they look a tiny bit smaller then the penny.
So I have spent my budget for the next few months but I have some work to do any way.

Those Boyz!!!

Well with yesterdays post on the amount of Orcs I have allot of work to do. I have been hampered over the years as to just how to pint them. The guy who gave them to me gave me some he painted, and he did a simple paint job the F**ken worked great. Duh why did I no think of that. My problem is I am a die hard GW 40k Ork fan, and was thinking of my old Ork hordes and how they were painted. Also there is a very high level of detail on there minis that could lead to allot of painting. So I hope I have been sparked to get these guys painted, and mounted.

MJ Space Orcs, pluss some AA Shia Khan

Well It has been a very long time and I have not posted any thing. I have been very busy with work and life. This past week a very good friend of my parted with his MJ orcs, and gave them to me (yea me). So I took what he gave me (around 50 or so) and added them to mine, for a grand total of 209 Orcoid troopers.

Here they are and I only have a very small amount painted. So I have my work cut out for me. Once painted I will be looking in to getting some 15mm colonial brits from a Zulu range and having a mass game of Orc vs Brits.
