Belated Birthday Gift.. and 40k hits!

This past weekend although I spent a bit of time painting on Saturday, Sunday proved to be a more entertaining day.

As a family we took off to Taksim to meet up with BuRock who was in town for a work thing ( I say thing cause we all know he doesn't work that hard ;) ). While he was up, he was able to hand over the much anticipated belated birthday gift that he has been working on.

The model was from the company TarTar ( like the sauce you eat British Fish and Chips with :) ), and the model is a 1/12 scale bust. BuRock was quite chuffed at the work on it and I can see why. He really went to town on it to ensure that it was up to his Pro-Painter standards!

So after a bit of a QnA all of last week between us for me to guess what the model was, it was a nice surprise to see it in person finally. I had found it online ( much to BuRock's disappointment ) but seeing it in the flesh was much different. It really shows he put a lot of time and effort into this, to which I am really happy to receive it! I know also his significant other is glad it is out of the house so that he can stop obsessing over it :)

More photos below.. which was hard to take since the model barely fit into my new photo box.. But currently it is taking up residence on my desk at work. Though I have a few questions as to what does "Oppressor" mean? Not the best wording for a manager to have on his desk, but then again what can you do sometimes :)

Also over the weekend I hit 40,000 page views! Yee haa!!! Can't believe I got that far with this little old blog of mine! Thanks to everyone who reads this, and hopefully I can continue to bring up projects and topics that will continue to entertain! Or failing that, just what I am doing and see if it can be spun into a reality TV show that is all the rage these days. Stranger things have happened!

And now back to my regularly scheduled working schedule..


  1. Congrats on the 40K the ideal milestone I'd imagine with all the 40K stuff you paint :D That bust is lovely, i'm sure the boys at work will appreciate it!

    1. Indeed Simon. Just fitting concerning everything that I have on my table these days, and more on the way! So far everyone at work likes the bust indeed!
