More for the Forces of Isengard

Some more Uruk's. Dave over at Shadow and Flame is doing an Ugluk conversion for me. Figured I had better get the original painted up.

Uruk Hai and Back Logs

Been busy working on a paper I was asked to write on black shales. Thanks to that deadline I haven't done much in the way of painting for a while. However, I made good progress on the paper yesterday and after a discussion with myself, me and myself agreed that I could take a break and photograph the the Uruk banner bearer I finished, oh.... maybe a couple weeks ago. Maybe not that long. Anyway here he is. I love these guys and I may pull out a few more banners to do. Plus, as if four aren't enough, I have Dave over at Shadow and Flame making me another. hahaha.  Without further ado, here he is (as always you can find this and more Isengard minions on the Isengard page):

Speaking of banners and more S&F conversions, I have been reading about back logs lately. Specifically, Garfy's post over on ToP. Got me thinking about my back log of miniatures. I figured I would pull out all the boxes, and with a bit of luck get them all put back after a photo. Here it is in all its splendor. The backlog comprises 99% GW material and as far as I know I have everything ever released. Occasionally one or two pop up that I don't have, but that is why on the 8th day your God created eBay. There is also some Ebob, Thomarillion, Knight Models, and of course MBM/S&F.

Well that was a nice little break, now to go back 390 million years to the Devonian and the Marcellus Shale, and write about pyrite spheres that are only five microns in diameter. Hopefully this back log will be one mini shorter in a couple weeks. At which point it will go from looking like the picture above, to looking like this:

Did you see the change? Dont worry, neither did I.
