Heroes of Armageddon: Furioso Dreadnought I

So I started to put together the Furioso Dreadnought and wanted to work on a pose. I thought about alot of different poses, but came up with the pose of a Dreadnought charging.

The pics below are not of the final pose as it will be leaning forward a bit more. It's just put together with some blue tac right now. I may cut up the legs a bit to make it so that it is striding forwards more. Thoughts on that.....

The other thing is the arm pose. Should I have the arms out the way it is shown above like its ready to give you a bear hug? Thoughts.....

Storm Raven WIP

So I started working on the pilot of the Storm Raven. Since I wanted the pilot painted, I got it done before I plan on putting him in the cockpit. The model was painted with a base coat and two shades of highlights along with one shade of shadow. He is painted with the 3rd company tear drop.

Messy Work Station

I swear that everytime I feel like the my work station is messy, I clean it up and within a few days it's messy again. I have stuff all over the place on my desk and it's mind blowing that sometimes I know exactly where a certain piece that I need is hidden somewhere underneath a pile of stuff. I've been meaning to post up my second wave of stuff that I want to get rid of, but need a bit of cleaning up and organizing before I post anything else. Though you will see some pics of things going soon.

Just some things I'm working on for the 'Heroes of Armageddon' project

Painting tray somewhere underneath all that plastic

Airbrush compressor and some Grey Knight boxes

Boxed models soon ready to be posted for sale (when I get around to it)

Things to sell, some already posted

Stylish Blogger Awards

I would like to say thank you to Black Matt from http://chaos-space-marines.blogspot.com/ He nominated me for the, you guessed it, the STYLISH BLOGGER AWARD!

Here are the rules:
-- Thank and link back to the person giving you the award (see above)
-- Share seven (7) things about yourself
-- Select 10-15 blogs who you think deserve this award
-- Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award

Seven things about me:

1) I have been training in Tae Kwon Do since 1989 and now run my business.

2) Went to school and majored in Visual/Graphic Arts, Drawing/Paining, and Business Management. Never used any of my majors for a career other than certain parts of the business managment.

3) Love to watch playoff games in basketball, baseball, football. But hate watching regular season games. Guess the thrill of elimation makes the games that much more interesting to watch.

4) Hate certain things being messy and need perfection, such as painting models. But my desk and place of living is a complete mess lol.

5) Hate other people that don't know how to drive or the rules of driving. Curse them alot behind the wheel even though I know I should just keep my cool.

6) Love to build things and get my hands dirty. Carpentry is awesome, metal work is insane but amazing, clay work/sculpting is fun but need more work on it to improve my skill.

7) Won a golden demon a few years back and thought it was a fluke. Trying every year to get back on top. Been improving but so is everyone else :( My first model ever painted was a blob of paint. I wish I had kept that model to compare and show my progression.

So the other bloggers that I would like to list are those that I follow and either know personally or have met in the past:

Black Matt
Bald and Screaming
Tau of War
The Unholy Harbringer
On the Painting Table
Stuck Between Stations
All Things 40K

MiCho Clean Out and Sell Off

Just like all of you who have been in this hobby for long enough, given enough time and you end up having more than a roomful of products that just sit around and collect dust. Trying to get started on a project that just never gets finished because either there is too much for us to do already, but also the new shiny models that come out almost every other month tend to grab our attention and pull us away from our first objective. There are just so many things that I wish I could have done with the models at hand, but simply put not enough time to do it all.

So I decided to clean out my closet (along with other nooks around the house) for two reasons. First, there is just simply no way I will be able to get through all these models. Most of the products I have are still shrink wrapped lol. My loss will end up being your gain. But more importantly the second reason.....I need the money because my wife and I will be starting a family as we are having a new baby. The money I receive after selling the stuff will basically go towards buying a new home along with other things needed to raise a baby. Anything that you guys pick up will go a long way for me and my family.

I'll be basically selling all the stuff here on my Blog until the end of the month before I post them up on eBay. Once posted on eBay, I will provide my user account for any of you that wish to follow along the auction to bid.

If you see anything on my blog that you wish to purchase, just send me an email @ mcho0827@gmail.com with what you want. I will reply back with my paypal information so that you can make the payment. Once I receive payment, I will ship out the models via USPS Priority Mail. I will be selling on a 'first come first serve' basis unless I have multiples that are left over.

So here goes my first wave of products (roughly 30% off retail):

Tau Stealth Suits - $15.00 ea (6 boxes; 1 sprue set)

Tau Sniper Drones - $23.00 ea (3 boxes)

Tau Crisis Suits - $15.00 ea (4 boxes; 1 sprue set)
Tau Crisis Suit Commander - $20.00 ea (3 boxes)

Tau Hammerhead - $30.00 (1 box)

Tau Commander ShadowSun - $18.00 (1 box)

Tau Gun Drones - $15.00 (10 Drones on sprues)

Sisters of Battle Repentia Squad - $35.00 ea (2 boxes)

Sisters of Battle Seraphrim Squad - $35.00 ea (4 boxes)

Sister of Battle Squad - $35.00 ea (4 boxes)

Vostroyans Platoon - $80.00 (1 box)
