Campaign Hammer progress

I've been playing in a WFB campaign for a while now. It's starting to hot up. The wheat has been separated from the chaff, the men from the boys, the core from the hardcore...or something.

We've had two players drop out (which is a pity). One through other commitments, and one through a devilishly good flank attack on his capital. The third capital fell today, t'was the Beastmen - though I'm sure they'll attempt to re-assemble their empire and fight on.

Like fluff? There's been a fair deluge of that today. I guess folks have realised that it's possible to talk about stuff that's happening without actually giving any of their plans away.

dedicated paint time

early progress
Last weekend I made a trip to hang out with Mr.Saturday so that we could get some productive painting time under our belts.  I've been spending no time on it of late, and I reckon Sat's been the same, so making an event of it made sure neither could back down. :)
His Fimir are coming along nicely, I can't wait to see the first finished unit.

We started with some pinning. Never having done any pinning before, I was quite scared of irrevocably damaging any models by drilling into them. Or perhaps misaligning the pin on one side of the join, causing an arm to go be misaligned with the body and ruining the entire model.
My fears were unfounded, under careful tutelage we got the three Golem models all pinned up, and one pinned to it's base.

After that, I got 3 Hammerers done, which I'll post photos of later. I made a good start on 3 more, then based up a bunch of trees (they still need painted).
