An Ork and a Monkey walk into a bar.....

Recently completed 40k Ork and Jokaero.  Not sure exactly what I will use them for, but they were fun to paint.

28mm Roads

I completed a set of 28mm roads today.  They are made from roof shingles, a method I read about on the Architects of War website.  They may not be perfect, but I think they will serve well enough.  I tried to make enough to fit most any layout,  though they are simple enough to make should I require more roads.  I only used a fraction of the package of shingle material I purchased at Lowes.

Here is shot of one of the roads with a Foundry viking.  The hedges are another work in progress.  I've used heavy duty metal scouring pads that I found in the paint section at Walmart.  The hedges aren't terrible, but they still need a little work.

I have a few other terrain bits in the works, including some rough stone walls.  Hopefully, they will be completed soon.

Foundry Viking

Just finished painting a Viking champion from Wargames Foundry. First non-"dipped" paint job I have attempted in many years.
