Painting In Exile...

Well it's been a while! I am still in the UK and as such the painting has not progressed any since I left California... but! I have managed to unearth some of my old Blood Bowl figures to drag with me back to the US! I had hoped to take some of my other miniatures stuff (Uncharted Seas, Dystopian Wars, Scenery) but there really isn't much space and realistically... I'm just not going to use them and probably not even finish painting them.

As long time readers will recall, my Skaven Team are my original team the Skumm Suckers! They are looking a LOT less well painted to me now that I have upped my game some, but they are my first love and here they are:



And then there are the Chaos Dwarves, the color scheme is hideous and to be honest a pain in the arse to paint up but they are done and I am pretty pleased with the overall aesthetic:



I also have a few random figures in my case, some support stuff:



And finally, this guy:





I've shown him here on this blog before but I'd forgotten how nicely I had painted a few of the things like the veins and the fabric. I am wondering whether I should dullcoat him but I don't want to risk 'bluing' the finish...

So, if I haven't been painting, what have I been doing back in the UK? Well playing a fair number of boardgames! In the time I've been back, I've played 23 games, 17 new games/expansions and 3 plays off of my under 5 list:
