Snotling Boxing/UFC Diorama WIP

This is a diorama I built a while back and never finished.  I figured Snotlings have something they enjoy doing when they're not running from Orcs.  I spent some time getting all the bits together and made the rest from balsa wood and wire.  The picture at the bottom shows all the characters that go on the base.  I decided to keep them separate until after painting.

As you can see in the above picture, I have the ring set up on barrels and a couple plank benches sitting on some small pails.  I also put a small ladder on each side of the ring and a spit bucket where the coach hangs out ringside.  I also have a treasure chest with da' winnings.  There are a couple guards below you can see that keep it from getting carried off during the fight.  There's also a gong for rounds and a banner to keep rounds on.  I also put some barrels of fungus beer in there for the spectators to purchase.  There are a couple more pics below showing more angles.

Above are the characters that will be added to the diorama.  The top row consists of the coaches and cheerleaders for each fighter.  The second row consists of the spectators I have chosen to watch this fine sporting event.  The third row has the judge on left, and the bellringer with hammer just to right and the guardians of the winnings on right.  And the two bottom ones are the fighters.  The left one is more of a karate kid martial arts snotling, while the right is more Bloodsport with his bound fists dipped in broken glass.  I guess technically this is more UFC style but with the square ring it can be called whatever.

Well, it's been a little slow on model front for me lately, thus showing you an old half finished project that I wish I had time to finish.  I did however build a Malifaux gang on Friday.  I hope to get pics of them taken this week and posted up.  I started with Bayou Gremlins and have all models except a couple that I ordered today.  I hope they come in so I can finish building everything that is out and start some painting on them.  Maybe after that I'll actually get a rulebook and try to play a game.

And I also put up my Lizardmen army on ebay and it ends tonight.  So, if you interested check the link I added.    Ebay items ending tonight

Well, there's a pretty good size Lizardmen army in there.  The Orc & Goblin army I posted earlier will be going on Ebay in the future also.  I am trimming Fantasy down to only one army, for now anyways.  I have a huge Ogre Army I want to add to and then maybe if my interest in the game goes up, I'll add another one later slowly.  I am also wanting to start into some Malifaux, the Bayou Gremlins are to cool to pass up on that game.

Content is slow lately, but that just means real life is busy.  Maybe after getting some models out of the way, I will start getting some things that I have most interest in now and start actually working on something.  Please hurry Chaos Space Marine Codex.

Current Ogre Kingdoms Army

With the new pics up of the very soon to be released Ogre Kingdoms, I decided to pull out my old army and see what I had.  Seeing the new pics I already know what I'll be adding.  That would be two of everything, haha, well definitely the new big guys and maybe the special characters, depending on their rules.  But, like all armies I really like, I want one of everything, naturally.

I figured I would take some pics of the army as it was built and then when I get the new book, I'll rearrange the units and whatnot to get it fitting the new rules.  So, for now, check out the pics and I'll get the book and go over this armies evolution into 8th edition.

So happy when the plastic Giant was released

Converted Scrap Launcher.  I hate the metal one. Was fun to build this gunpowder version.

Another shot of the Launcher

Yeah, I like this simple sled.

The only model I painted for test.  Love the metals, like the new flesh colors much more.

I really need to work on large surfaces of skin.  These guys are tough to paint depth without real skills.

Well, that's the army as it stands now.  Hopefully, soon I'll be adding some real monsters to the mix and maybe actually try out 8th edition.  

Anyone else have a cool army waiting in the closet for an update?  I know my Chaos Marines are raging about it in their case.

In other news I put all the Khador stuff on Ebay finally.  The auction ends Tuesday evening.  Check the following link to all those guys:
