Dwarf warrior champion

A Dwarf warrior champion for a miniature exchange

Torrential rain.

I got soaked on the school run yesterday. In the 10 minute walk home from school we had ½" of rain collect in the cup holder on the pushchair.
Oh well, at least we got dry when we got in.

Painting mountain and "super genius"

I've managed to get a bit of a painting mountain. I've got 3 competition level pieces to paint before august.
One for an exchange on Platoon Britannica which will probably be an orc shaman.
One for an exchange on which will probably be a Dwarf
and finally, Eldessa for The golden bat competition at Carpe Noctem, the vampire counts forum.
plus a 28mm WW1 army, a 6mm seeds of war army, a mordheim warband and necromunda scavies. 
busy, busy, busy!

On a real plus note, I spoke to Adam's head teacher this morning and asked to make an apointment to see her about his progress and continuing to challenge him with maths and english. After I'd identifyed my self and him, she said "Oh, that Adam, Super Genius Adam!" :-D 

Someone else in the playground mentioned Bastille Day so this has been going round my head on the walk home

More work in progress

After posting my WIP shots from yesterday on Platoon Britannica, I was given some useful advice to work on shading with colour theory. Here are some updated shots of Eldessa. I've spotted some errors that need correcting. More tomorrow.

A work in progress- Reaper necromancer Eldessa

Here are the first photos of Eldessa which I am planning on entering in Carpe Noctem's golden bat competition I removed the sword she was carrying as I thought it was a little too high fantasy. I've added a spear from the games workshop skeleton warriors
