Wargames table WIP 3

Here is the first 4 out of the initial 9 i have finished. making a playing area of 8'x4', so still quite a way to go! I'm pretty happy with the results so far except there is a slight warp in a couple of the boards so i may tru painting the other side to see if it rectifies the problem...

As I said in my previous post my favourite miniatures released last year were these bad boys from GB.
So I thought it was about time I painted mine. Here are the first 6 of the the 25 Jomsviking minis, at what a joy to paint! I also have a few of the older style ones to do, hopefully it will be quite an impressive warband when they are all finished.
If the cold weather is making you feel all Viking. Grab yourself a few packs of these, play some Manowar through your head phones and get painting.
as Svend Karlsen aptly states, VIKING POWER!

The category of favourite game i played 2012 goes to
War of the Ring, march of the Ents! i sadly didnt get as much gaming in as i hoped last year, but htis was just great fun! 20 Ents against thousands of Orcs, whats not to be liked?

well folks I would usually go on about what I aim to be doing this year in the hobby, but i failed so miserably with last years intentions that i'm not going to write anything about future plans..
I've now been painting fulltime professionally for over a year and business is good, when i do get a chance to paint something for myself i'm just going to grab anything from my huge pile of lead and enjoy it!
saying that there will be another post this evening with a little direction.....

The table is coming along nicely, heres is the first 8'x6' in various states of completeness. three boards are awaiting an order from Javis, two are awaiting a good dusting and one is actually complete!
I'm thinking of making it a 14x6'

This table is huge and i'm getting the berzerker rage, now for the last time Erik where is this bloody castle?
