Firstly a big shout out to my friend in actual real life Phil who finally bowed to peer pressure and started his blog, Monsters and Machines.
Head over there and give his stuff a look as it's top (he needs the followers) ;-)
I finally managed to have a big sort out of my desk and get everything arranged how I wanted:
The cabinet on the left contains all my finished mini's and is an Ikea Expedit shelving unit:
with their glass shelving inserts:
An easy solution to my display needs, the glass inserts were a little bit of a pain in the arse to put together but look great and should hopefully keep he dust off. I'm aiming to add some strip lighting to each of the sections as it's a little on the dark side the lower you get down through the shelves but that's an addition for next months pay packet.
Also above my desk I've attached some cheap plastic trays that now hold all my mini's that are technically WIP's that way I can grab anything that catches my eye and hopefully it'll mean that I get more mini's finished.
On the most recent purchase front I got a random box of lead from ebay that contained all of these guys:
A ton of old citadel and Grenadier mini's that for now I've just undercoated ready for basing, I'll probably do a separate update with individual shots at a later date.
Now to the painted stuff, first up we have a really early Citadel CO3 cleric (second row down)
Lovely little mini, but a little on the rough side sculpting wise so I've done the best I can and given him a fiery finish.
Next we have the awesome Saughin mini's that I got from my brother at Christmas:
The items in their hands I made myself from greenstuff and other spare weapons, I imagine anything that they would use as weapons would be scavenged and heavily corroded.
Lastly for now I've painted up one of the Grenadier Demons from their box-set as an addition to the aquatic group (http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~tpope/sol/grenadier/images/6006.jpg)
Lastly for this update is what I'm calling the goblin cup, £1 from a charity shop and worth every penny:
