News - Updated 4/05/01
-For all those of you who have e-mailed me at firstname.lastname@example.org, you may not have been able to get through. The reason for that is because, for some odd reason, Black Orc e-mail is temporarily shut down. So, if you want to get a hold of me, try me here: SHEM1076@aol.com
-OK, my painting service is starting up again. Things didn't quite work out between me and the Warlocke's Lair. I'll bet it has something to do with the distance between me and Montana. Anyway, I'm accepting work again. I've decided, though, that I'll limit the amount that I do, so as not to get buried by the workload. Anyone that wants me to do figures for them must limit their request to no more than 10 figures, and I will suggest another service if I'm already doing enough work. I think that's only fair.
-E-Mail: I know there's some confusion right now as to what my e-mail address actually is, and why you might get a weird angelfire page if you click on the link sometimes. Well, I wasn't quite sure what I was doing when I started this page, so this is what you may be getting: http://www.angelfire.com/games2/warhammerpaint/SHEM1076@aol.com. Fret not, though, I've discovered the problem, and all the links on my Gallery pages are correct. Also, you may notice that I have switched my address to email@example.com. I got this address through Blackorc.com, and I fully recommend checking the site out. It's a great forum for hobbyists.
-All the pictures are fixed! I know it took forever, but it's done. Check them all out, you won't be disappointed.
-Some of you may be noticing that my images aren't all there. This is because I am in the process of renaming all my images. The reason for this is because the names were just way too long, and I needed to simplify things for my self. Everything should be back to normal soon, and the site will return to its former glory. Stay tuned!!!
-OK, I've got good news and bad news. The bad news is that I'm closing down my service. Not that I'm not able to handle the workload, but I've just been hired by a professional painting service. I'm glad to say that, although I enjoyed doing it on my own, I will now be able to do things a little more regularly. The good news is that I'm keeping this site up as a Gallery of what I can do. Perhaps I can link from there to here. For those of you that are interested, I'm a member of the Warlocke's Lair. Here's the Oh-so-important URL: The Warlocke's Lair
-Here's the link to the Armageddon Battle report. I'm not going to say which one I am, but at least now you know what I'm doing when I'm not painting your figures. Hels Highway
-Armageddon!!! I did my part in the war for Armageddon on April 19th at Grandmaster, near my house. I led a rabid Ork mob head-on against the Imperium's long range support in the battle to secure Helsreach Highway. Unfortunately, my mob was slaughtered at the hands of a heavy bolter crew and a mortar team, but I was able to occupy them long enough for the Ork Killa Kans to get into position. Too bad they were slowed down by the Imperial Hellhounds. The Orks lost the day, mainly becuase the Grots decided to revolt, taking away some much-needed support.I'd say, in the long run, that we weakened the garrisoned units along the Highway well enough to severely hamper their attempts to stop us a second time. We'll see how it goes.
-In honor of the events in the War for Armageddon, I have been hard at work to make Comissar Yarrick and Ghazghkull Thraka Figures. Ghazghkull is finished, and Yarrick is on the way. The should be on the page soon.
-I have added a few models here. Here is a short list:
-Kharn the Betrayer: I have had an entry up for Kharn for a little while, but no picture. Well, now I have such a picture. Check him out here.
-Warmaster High Elves: There are two here: 1) Hero on Dragon; and 2) Wizard. The Dragon was originally going to be my new featured model, but I went overboard on Step 2, and finished the thing. I put the pictures up with the High Elves, and I think it's one of the best figures I've done. Too bad the picture didn't come out better. The Wizard is another one that came out pretty well. I believe this one shows itself in the basing I did with it. See them, and the other High Elves, here.
-Featured Model: Yes!!! I finally have a new featured model! It's a Chaos Space Marine Land Raider, and it has a lot of potential. I'm definitely going to make this a more long-term project, as there are so many pieces in the darn thing, and I plan on painting them individually, before assembly. This should be good.
-I've decided to scrap the idea of doing a news archive. I figure that nobody really cares what I did in April, as long as they can see the finished project here.
-Lastly, I've changed my picture format. Up to now, I've used a gray background, which let's face it, just looks bad in some cases. Plus, it's hard to get just the right lighting I need. Now, I'm using a green mat, in an area with much better lighting. I think the pictures look a lot better, and they will be getting even better.
-Okay, I did indeed commit myself to updating this page every week, and it may seem as though I haven't. The truth is that I have been updating this page quite frequently, and I just haven't mentioned it here. Take a look around. You'll see what I mean. I've added a couple of new armies to the main index, and they will be growing soon. So, check back frequently. I'll keep track of what I'm adding, so that I can put it all up here.
-Due to lack of access to certain technological gadgets, I have been on hold as far as the updating of this page is concerned. However, I now commit myself to update this page weekly, as new material makes it self available. Also, I'll only keep up news on this page as old as a month, you may have noticed that by the fact that this is the only date here any more. Fret not, though. I will be setting up a news archive shortly.
-More Warmaster: The first High Elves are up. I've got a general on that page that looks pretty good.
-Mordheim: I finished that order for The Possessed. They are definitely something to look at. I'll let you decide...
-Warhammer Fantasy: I've added to the Chaos Warriors section, which wasw direly needed to make that page at least a little better.
