Ok, so I'm running a bit behind on the 'Tale of Gamers' project.

I've managed to get some of the base colours done. (horns, blades, skin)
My shifts at work are all over the place at the moment, so it's difficult to find time when I'm not eye-tired.
(or when the missus or my daughter aren't demanding quality time, which is fair enough)
Though on the flip side I've painted more of a regiment in the last month than I've managed since the late 90's...

First regiment cleaned up and based. (I also got the General primed and undercoated, and shhh.. Cleaned/based the Bloodthirster not actually involved in this challenge)
I'm not fast, nor do I have loads of time. Though I'll try to keep up.
Goal is to have this lot painted by the end of the month, and the next regiment prepped.
I've saved you from my messy workspace with a piece of cunningly placed paper.

I'm not sure I used enough Skulls.

Also I'm going to cheat with the standards. Using modern banners, and toppers.

I'm also not using the boring old flat "Dark Age" style round shields, after picking up a bargain on a trading page.

Hobby Goals

This year I will mostly be trying to get this army to a state of completion.
I need to buy a few figures to flesh out the odd regiment (The Angry Cows, Plastic Goats, and the Swole Daemons)
Taking part in the "Tale of X Gamers" on the new Middlehammer forums.

Sorting out some old figures

Found a pile of old figures in a box, I will have to sort them properly.

 Citadel - two-part Chaos Knights. c1989
 Citadel - two-part "Empire" Knights c1989
 Marauder Miniatures - Reiksguard Knight and Chaos Knight (can't find him on any catalogue sites though). c1989
 Citadel - Skeletons c1990
 Grenadier - Skeleton Bolt Throwers
 Grenadier - Skeletons
 Grenadier - Ghouls
 Citadel pre-slotta  - Orcs, a Goblin, and a Pirate.
Randoms - two Ral Partha (top right) and a bunch of unknowns...
