Amazing work...just...wow.

Ditto @docForsaken I would buy terrain.

The problem with Terrain, it takes a bit of time, the painting is easier granted, but it also has a not insignificant material cost.  It burns through stuff pretty fast.

I'd Venmo over some $ if you wanted to build me some terrain.  Seriously.  Its one side of the hobby I've yet to get into, but I love the way it looks on the table.

Haha... thank you for the compliment! While I'm definitely not opposed to doing commissions I think I'd probably charge way too much for my (very unprofessional) work since it does take a ton of time. Terrain's easy to get into though and it doesn't take much to make painted foam look good. :)

So here are some odds and ends from my second core box. I'm loving the blue and white shields even though they are a fairly common pattern as far as I can tell.

I've also painted my second Kari. Originally I wasn't planning on painting multiple heroes, but my first Kari looked horrible due to bad conditions during the priming step that turned her fuzzy (I know, I know... it's the poor painter who blames his tools, etc.). Anyway, I finally have a Kari that I can be proud of. I've included some side by side pictures for comparison. Although the quality (apart from the fuzziness) doesn't look too much better, my speed has improved significantly.

I originally wasn't going to bother painting the second Ardus as my fuzzy Ardus doesn't look too bad, but then my wife wanted to try out painting so she's working on him right now. I'll post pictures when she's finished (if she lets me).

I usually like posting pictures more than one at a time, but my Stone-Choked Circle is taking longer than I expected so I included a Daqan army picture to go with the Waiqar horde.

And here's the completed Wildroot Patch. This one was really tough to design around trays (partially because I started off thinking it only fit 2 instead of 4) and I'll admit that there's definitely some troops hanging off the sides when I try to squeeze them in. I was trying to make it look like wide-spread roots from a giant tree were beginning to send up shoots. Other than the space issue I like how it turned out. Also, I used food coloring to die the leaves darker in a very time-intensive project to save money by not having to buy more colors of leaves.

If anyone has ideas for what to put in the burrow let me know!

Here's the last bit of terrain from the Latari core set. I originally had a different plan for the Thorn-Choked Circle, but all the little bushes I made will work better for some of Meagan's terrain (although I did include one little bush).

I put mud and grass on the trays before shaving the excess away from the holes so that the figures actually fit. I've been saving the shavings though, and used them for the thorns on the boulders.

I wanted another Lingering Dead card so I found a cheap Waiqar Reanimates Expansion on Ebay and painted them over the holidays. For Christmas I got another Latari Core Set though! I might finally have enough elves to start playing 200 point games with them.

I was going to include my Latari, but I have a huge batch of archers being painted right now so I decided to keep them out of the photo. I'll post them with the Uthuk whenever I get around to buying them (and with a baby on the way who knows when I'll have money again). So here are the forces of Hepitude as they stand now.

Congrats on the baby. And as for money, just get the baby into miniatures. U can then use the baby as an excuse to buy stuff
