Made quite a bit of progress on these, and WILL be able to take pics of some fully based units (along with some finished characters) tomorrow all being well. RL has reared its head for what is probably the last major time in a while, so hoping to get back on track with these and other projects....

Not really a full update yet as Ive got a lot of family stuff to wrap up still - and a couple of folks visiting for a few days. Did get chance to have a few mess-on games on Friday (no points limits or lists - just playing around with units) and took a few pics. So here's a sneak peak of things to come...

Update on the lack of updates (and a self motiivational post!)

Finally getting things back to normal after losing my mum a couple of months ago. With moving house and starting up working for myself things have been a bit manic to say the least. We're finally getting back into some semblance of normality, so Im hoping to get both this thread, the thawk step-by-step and the Egrimm project back on track. On the plus side Ive got a spangly new camera to take pics with and a dedicated desk next to the pc to work on :)

Being busy is the best thing in times like this, I lost my Mum a couple of years ago and dad a few years before that, and all I can say is 'It's fine to miss them'.

Condolences, it is always hard when something happens like that. I am glad you are putting on a brave face and look forward to seeing more of the Thunderhawk when you feel up to it.
