I didn't manage to get anything painted during the eighth week, but a couple of days into the ninth week I finished up my Mordheim Cult of the Possessed warband. I had started them long ago but never finished them. Now, they are completely painted and ready to comb Mordheim for treasure and leave destruction in their wake.
I was really, really unhappy with the Possessed, because I got in a rush and used red ink on the face. I should have let the ink dry before using blue ink on the hair. Well, the blue ink ran right into the red ink and flowed along the face, making it look like the face had been crying with mascara.
After trying to blot as much as possible off, I had to repaint the face and neck, which was not fun, but manage to roughly salvage it. Sigh.
So I finished a unit, which should entitle me to a joker, but I haven't even spent one yet so we'll see if I need it.

I got the three orcs from the Reaper Bones set finished. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.
In addition, I was asked by the kiddos to bust out Mordheim for a fun summer morning activity. Skaven vs. Cult of Possessed. The Skaven ended up making quick work of almost all my heroes due to a flurry of critical hits and poisoned blades!
|The table laid out in all its glory.|
|The Skaven Assassin Adept fails his psychology roll, but promptly slays the Possessed.|
I really should add those cultists minis to my to-do list...

Another really crazy work week but I got some painting done. These are three orcs from the Reaper Bones line, specifically (l-r) the Orc Marauder, Orc Hunter, and Orc Sniper. Most of the main blocking is painted in, and now needs the shading and highlighting and the bases tidied up.
I should have these guys done soon, and then hopefully onto other things.

So my work is, at best, inconsistent, and last week was unexpectedly difficult and busy. As such, I got very little done, although I did get the spray basecoat cleaned up and the black portions of some ICE Space Rangers done. It's weird, though. Looking at the photo you can tell that one is different than the others. Maybe sprayed on a different day, or with a different primer layer? I don't know.
I also primed three Reaper Bones Orcs, in hopes of getting around to them as a "when I get bored of Space Rangers" project. Honestly, next week is going to be just as rough, if not worse, so we will have to see.
But, I did get something done, and still haven't bought anything, so I'm still in the game!
