 My son picked this figure up on  a trip to see his girlfriend he's was fun to paint

 the next three photos are of a test figure i've done for my sons eldar army

 My son is starting to pile on the figures you don't want to see what i picked up for him for his birthdayso many figures this is just a tiny part of it they are all painted as blood angels or not painted at all so heaps to do i've started by air brushing some base coats.

Bolt action 28mm figures completed

 Needed to get a bit more support for my Germans so here they are they took down a sherman last time out by pinning it out of the game.
 My jeep dies over and over again need to rethink how i use him 

 ok so this one needs a bit more work but its on its way and has already chalked up its first few kills

28mm foundry roman's oh and a few warlord games figures to

 Been a long time since my last post my son decided he would remove some programs from my computer to make it go faster thanks for making it so i couldn't upload photo J.
I've done so much work but no pictures to show so here's some of what ive been working on past month or so

 I had a heap of fun with the little big man transfers think they were quite old could peel them off so in the end glued the whole thing on back and all

 Last but not least yes i know they aren't foundry but warlord games Auxiliary
i started this commission Saturday morning and had them finished mid afternoon no shield transfer game with the figures so i just decided to hand paint them myself I'm sure i think they came up not to bad

My Son asked me if i can please paint this 40k Eldar Jetbike for him

When i got these figures off a mate the Eldar models were in pretty bad shape i had already fixed and painted the one in the background, so i pulled it to bit washed it undercoated it in black and then airbrushed  a few fine layers of red before doing the rest by brush, I drilled out the bottom of the craft where the stand is attached because it was far to lose, then using a garden watering system wee plastic plug that is used to fill a hole, i put a new hole drilled into it inserted this in and supper glued it this plastic will not wear so the stand should now stay firm.
 the shot below is obviously before attaching the top,
