Site donation part 1 & chaos dwarf blog part 3.
The last of my spare sets of block dice have been sold through e-bay. They went from £9.50 to £30, not matching the heights of previous years but still amounting to £236.50. e-bay take 10% of that as fees which brings it down to £212.85 and each set cost me £8.50 to have made, which leaves a profit of £110.85.

Split 50/50 that gives the site £55.43. However I’m still waiting to hear back if all of these have arrived and some of those were going to the US or New Zealand. Which means I’m not certain yet if I’ll need to refund any of these should they be lost in the post. I’ll wait till the end of the year or all the buyers get in touch for this part.

In the meantime I’ve made the donation for the 101 sets sold through the forum along with the 3 sets I kept for my own collection, that means 104 sets with a £5 donation each comes to £520.

Paypal had a conversion rate of 1.22540 dollars to the pound, which means in US dollars the donation is $637.21



Thanks to everyone who bought a set, and may these dice bring you lots of luck.



Lots more progress has been made on the chaos dwarfs as well. The bull centaurs were mostly painted like the blockers with the big difference being the bull parts. I went for a mid brown for these, black was another possibility but is very hard to paint that on a large smooth area. Muscles on larger models are one of the things I am best at painting and was pleased with how these turned out.







The Minotaur has been completed as well, he doesn’t have a lot of clothing and armour, nor hair. This meant the majority of the painting was of his skin, I went for a slightly darker brown than the bull centaurs and this turned out really well. The rest of him was painted in the same scheme as the other players. The larger armour pieces gave me more space to work on the green bits of his armour. His shoulder pad in particular turned out really well. I’m thinking of incorporating this technique of using extreme highlights into future projects. It would need to be used in moderation, but could be really effective at adding some grandeur to otherwise dull looking models. Best of all it works with pretty much any colour.






For the coach and apoth I wanted them to match the rest of the team but they do have a few unique elements. The coach’s hair was painted a lighter shade of grey to represent his great age and I gave him a black leather jacket to keep with the team colours. I thought about painting the apoth’s robes in a pale shade like hospital scrubs, but was worried that would be too close to his pale skin colour. Instead he got black robes with a cream coloured apron, more like a butcher’s outfit than a surgeon. For the skull I used grey as the starting colour which I prefer for older skulls, imagining it is an ancient skull used as a surgical guide rather than a more recent, unsuccessful patient. I’ve since added bloodstains to the apoth and an American football style tactical diagram to the coach’s clipboard.





With these completed the team is nearly done, stars and markers are the last outstanding models to paint and then other details.

Those miniatures look amazing

An inspiration Spubbba. I recently got this team after winning a competition by the now retired Mikey at Wyrdstones and Tacklezones. I only dream of painting them up to look this good, but it's nice to see the potential of the models.
