So I haven’t done any painting yet even though I said I would try. Problem is I have painters block and with so many minis around me I can’t decide what to paint. So what can I do? Do I paint the orks waiting to my right or the Trollbloods also to my right? It’s a tricky question, or do I go into the lead pile in the garage and try and find something else? Aaargh!
Luckily I’m not having the same trouble with gaming, recently I was introduced to the all new Iron Kingdoms RPG system by my cousin, which is a great system set in a awesome gaming world. If you’ve no clue about the world it is the same one as Warmachine and Hordes (hence the bonejack).
Currently I’m playing as a Trollkin Bounty Hunter/ Rifleman called Vorluck and I’m enjoying it immensely. Another game I’m playing right now is X-Wing by Fantasy Flight. It’s a superb little game of ship to ship combat in the Star Wars universe. The thing I love about it is that you really have to out think your opponent to win otherwise you’re toast, the basic game comes with everything you need to start playing including counters, movement markers and best of all an X-Wing and two T.I.E Fighters. The ships are pre-painted and look awesome, and just to indulge myself I also have Boba Fett’s Slave 1.
So gaming wise I’m sorted out it’s just getting myself to pick up a brush again, oh and I’m tempted to start playing Warmachine again but that’s another story…

It was all going so well then I had to open my mouth and say “let’s see how it goes!”. 3 months later and I’m recovering from not only a cold, but the flu and 2 chest infections. It has taken a long time to be almost rid of the one chest infection, problem is is that while I’ve been feeling cack I’ve not been able to get any painting done. With any luck this should all be behind me and I can get on with Grotsnik as I planned all that time ago.
I won’t curse myself…honest
Not the usual Valentine’s Day thing but here are a few more Orks to show I’ve been busy-ish…
First up heres the Big Mek (now finished and based)
And secondly here’s another Ork Biker:
I should be working on more…should! I’ve got on the blocks Mad Dok Grotsnik, more Bikers, and some Chaos Marines. Lets see how I get on
Had a short batch of painting block which is now hopefully a thing of the past!
I’ve got two more Ork Boys to add to the unit I’m expanding which now puts it’s tally up to 15. I’m still hoping to get the full 30 done so I have some flexibility in which units are maxed out as well as having units for games of Apocalypse.
Onto the miniatures themselves here are the next two boys for the aforementioned unit;
As always thanks for looking!
Happy New Year folks!
To bring in this new year I’ve two W.I.P Ork Boys that will be added to the unit that was painted a few months ago.
So here we go with the first boy!
and here’s the second:
As per usual these are wargaming standard minis so I can get them out and painted ASAP!
Thanks for looking!
Here’s the final Lootas picture for a while, it’s all 5 based and ready to game with.
I’m positively glad they are done and dusted
I decided I’d had enough and finished the last Loota this evening! Now they are just being based, so when they are dry and ready I’ll post up the group shot.
Before that though here’s Loota number 5:
I’m now relieved that the unit of 5 are done and dusted (apart from the bases) and will now take a nice rest until New Year!
See you in 2013!!
Told you I was determined to get the 5 Orks done
Paints only just drying here!
No doubt there will be an update again either tomorrow or Sunday.
Ta for now!
Been slightly busy and I’m determined to get the unit of 5 done before Christmas actually hits, so here is Loota number 3!
DAKKA, DAKKA, DAKKA, WAAAAAAAGH!
Now you may have noticed the site is running a little slowly, this is probably down to a DNS error the site has. I’m trying to get it sorted as soon as possible so please bear with me and if the www.mcgobbo.co.uk address doesn’t seem to load quick enough try www.madmcgobbo.co.uk instead.
Thanks as always!
They are the bane of my existence and I’ve got too many assembled but I am pushing through with painting them and here’s the second Loota for you to see.
Stealing my time! Damn Lootas!
So that’s Loota number 2 done, just needs basing which I will do when all 5 are done.
