Mount Crushmore

June 26, 2012

So this happened.

 

(and by happened I mean I paid a premium to get it off Ebay because I must paint this model).

I'll post up all the details asap along with some additional photos. For sale page has been updated.

Stormwall Done (mostly)

June 21, 2012

Did I mention I love this model!? Granted I didn't get very original with the paintjob, and it took me all week, but I'm really pleased with the final results. There's just a couple of small fixes I want to do (which is kinda why I'm not showing the back view yet).  Also have to paint up the three l…

Stormwall - weathering mostly done

June 20, 2012

Ok, in the post below I replied to a comment that I didn't get a good shot of the weathering I did tonight. Then I decided to go take one :) 

It may be overkill, but there are ways I can tone it down with white spirits and/or matte varnish. So basically I go heavier now because the varnish will e…

Another Stormwall WIP shot

June 19, 2012

I imagine it's hard to see the differences between my last wip shot and this one (iPhone doesnt take greatest shots of him either, in my painting room). However, I've done more "cleanup" work on the whites, washed all the metallics, and started the weathering process (dirt, dust, oil stains, soot an…

Stormwall WIP continues

June 18, 2012

Ok, loving this model.

This is one of those models where instead of feeling like a long job (because it is taking a lot longer than a lot of the models I paint) it gets more and more rewarding as I go. I can see where the model is "headed" visually, and I think it's going to turn out great. It's a …

The for sale page has been updated with some new stuff, including a number of painted models.

Cygnar Stormwall - WIP shot

June 16, 2012

I don't post WIP shots very often but thought I'd share what I'm working on right now. I plan to weather it pretty similarly to the Studio/official paintjob. Realistically I'm basically recreating (as best I can) the Studio one, because I like how it looks. This is a really fun model to work on!

Losing My Favorite Gaming Partner

June 13, 2012

Well, today I got some really crappy news. My buddy Robin is moving away. Far away (like, to the States) and it's happening within the month of June.

Those of you who partake in the gaming side of this hobby (i.e. not just the painting) probably understand what I mean - there's usually one friend-s…

Blog's Getting a Little Dusty (Dust Warfare)

June 10, 2012

And with that clever blog post title, I simultaneously communicate the fact that (a) it's been nearly a month since my last update and (b) I've been bitten by the Dust Warfare bug!

I tend to suffer from Hobby ADD as some of you may have seen by following the blog. Usually it involves been drawn f…

Team Game of 40k - first in well over a year...

May 11, 2012

Last night I joined my buddy Robin and a couple of new players I hadn't met before for an after work game of 40k. The breakdown was:

Team 1:
Me: Necrons
Robin: Dark Eldar

Team 2:
Dave: Chaos
Pat: Blood Angels

Nice mix of forces which made for an interesting and very fun game. We ended up playing Annihiatio…

New Necron Wraiths Painted

May 6, 2012

Back on the 40K side of things for a bit - I have a budding Necron force coming together, and bolstered their ranks considerably with some of the new models released this weekend. I managed to assemble and paint up 6 of the new Wraith models and added a Trayzen model (he will act as a Cryptek in my …

First Warhammer Tournament - Success!

April 28, 2012

As I've been talking about in some of my recent blog posts, I recently decided to attend my first Warhammer tournament (and really, my first serious/large wargaming tournament...period!).  The tournament in question is called Onslaught - it takes place in Edmonton twice a year (at the moment) usuall…

Empire - Averland Steam Tank

April 22, 2012

Alas! Today is the final day of my month off from work - which means my painting output will slow back down again :)  It's a shame because I've been on a roll lately in terms of raw output. I'm still enjoying painting up pieces for an Empire force.  The latest addition is a steam tank, once again do…

Edmonton Onslaught - Ticket Purchased

April 21, 2012

Wow - looks like I'm really going to Onslaught. I bought my ticket, submitted my list and am reviewing rules and FAQs and all that jazz. Should be interesting - I will likely get completely crushed but it will be cool to play against some new people and frankly just great to play some WFB again :)

My Display Board / Tray Solution

April 19, 2012

Hey guys,

So after spending some time at Ikea and Lowe's this morning, and a little creative effort, here's what I ended up with:

 

The materials were:

Ikea "Ribba" frame - 15 bucks

Two drawer pulls from Lowe's - about 5 bucks each

One sheet of "Joist Lining" - Looks like a big flat sheet o…

Musing on Army Display Boards and Trays

April 18, 2012

I totally thought that Warp Lightning Cannon post would break the silence on comments - I really like how it turned out. That's about as close to my ideal vision of  what warpstone should look like as I can get :)  I shall continue to have blog envy in terms of the authors out there that pull in upw…

Skaven Warp Lightning Cannon

April 16, 2012

It has been quite some time since I've painted anything for my Skaven army (currently hibernating in a Battlefoam bag beside me). In preparation for possibly having the balls to attend the Onslaught tournament, I decided to paint this piece up to add to my force. I must admit I'm very pleased with t…

Out of the Blue - Grey Knights Terminators

April 15, 2012

I reckon this blog at least keeps people guessing - you never quite know what I will post next. I think the next item on my desk will also come as a surprise. 

These terminators and Draigo were in my "WIP" cupboard for months, literally. Tonight I decided to finish them off. They aren't perfect by a…
