A little (ahem) late but these Scots spear from eBob look fantastic (see below):
Beautiful figures, with great character, I am already looking forward to painting them, the above picture does not do them justice, so try this (see below):
Time to take the brushes for a walk!

My Martian Robots have been "put on pause" as another sparkly item in the corner of my toy box caught my eye instead. After a very long gestation period (approximately in Earth/Terra-time a decade [hangs head in shame]) my Tau Kroot troops finally made it to the "painting tray" stage (see below, a wave of orange monsters descends into range):
- Used Arfix Acrylic (01) grey undercoat
- Washed with Vallejo "Sepia Wash"
- Base coat Vallejo Blazing Orange
Rather than posting a step by step painting description as I have done in previous posts, I took some time out of blogging and just enjoyed painting them (see below, I started adding "yellows"):
The photos may just show "glare" but the Kroots are getting progressively more "yellow". I like the look of the primitive Kroot with barbarous knives, teeth and claws plus "space musket". A one shot then charge in tactic akin to Highland Warriors (see below):
Again, final yellow highlights to the skin, a Vallejo "bright yellow" of sorts (see below):
The result is a little less of the blog posting but a little bit more on the satisfaction, to paraphrase Elvis! PS: I hope some could see the irony of painting Kroots and using an old Tyranid Codex as a movement tray.
