Vampire Counts Skeleton Unit

September 25, 2010

Hey folks! So, it seems I have hit "critical mass" with my wife's tolerance for my hobby spending - I'm getting a constant stream of "when are you going to sell some of this" queries. So choices have to be made!

I think in the very near future I will be listing my Imperial Guard and my Vampire Count…

Skaven Plague Priest

September 14, 2010

Whipped this guy up to join the ranks of my skaven (painted to "3 foot rule" quality, he doesnt stand up well to close photos). He'll help the Grey Seer out in the magic phase.

First Skaven Battle Under My Belt

September 12, 2010

After painting so many Skaven models over the past several months, it was a treat to finally get to sit down with my friend and play a game with them! We played 2k points, Dawn Attack, and despite playing for ~ 5 hours we didn't get to finish. However, Lizardmen were declared the winners on VPs.

Now…

Rat Ogres from Island of Blood

September 10, 2010

Finished up 6 rat ogres from the Island of Blood set. Even though it creates repetition of sculpts in the unit, I still find them pretty kickass :)  I love these models. They were painted pretty fast for gaming but I did put some extra care into them overall, just because they are one of the cooler …

Skaven Deja Vu!

September 7, 2010

So a while back I mentioned I might be doing something silly like painting an entire second Skaven army for this year (the first one sold a while back). Once I actually started playing WFB and getting a sense of the rules, I started missing the little rodents. The fact that the IoB set is so awesome…

First game with my Vampires

September 4, 2010

I had my first game with VC (ever) last night. 2k points against lizardmen .  We played watchtower (first time we've played that or used the building rules.

He was running

-Slaan with a 2+ range save, +1 dice for every cast, cupped hands, only hurt via magic weapons. He was running him without TG.

Even quicker Skaven

August 28, 2010

So these remaining 15 (from the box of 20) probably took me 2.5-3 hours to paint, maybe less. I think they could use some additional highlite work to make them a bit nicer looking. The musician in the back has a half painted bell mostly because I intend him (and all of these) to be rear-rankers. The…

Quick and Dirty Skaven

August 25, 2010

Hey I have an idea! Why don't I paint an entire Skaven army, sell it, then paint another one! :|

So the new IoB set is really nice...so nice I'm buying two, and trading one of my sets of High Elves for a friend's skaven. I'm going to have a LOT of skaven based on that transaction. Because of that, I…

Dwarf Quarrelers - First Unit

August 23, 2010

Hi folks - was feeling a bit bummed that I hit my points target on Vampires (go figure, disappointed I'm done painting an army??) and for a day or two couldn't figure out what I want to paint next. I did some additional work on the Stegadon Warshrine conversion but then turned my eye back to the Dwa…

Second Varghulf

August 19, 2010

Hey folks,

So I've read quite good things about Varghulf's in 8th edition (as flankers) and even better things about running two of them in a list. With that in mind I've painted up a second one, and this takes me to 1998 points painted. I kinda want to keep going!  However, I'm also starting to g…

Vampire Hero (Konrad Miniature)

August 16, 2010

Finished this guy up this evening - I believe I will go back and hit the blood drops with some gloss. But overall pretty happy with how he turned out. He will be embedded in one of the ghoul units.

Vampire Lord and Corpse Cart

August 14, 2010

Hey folks, couple of cool new minis to share with you tonight!

I'm really happy with how these guys turned out. They aren't done to a display standard or anything, and I cut lots of corners, but they still look quite striking on the table!  I especially like the corpse cart results, with the green b…

Even more Blood for the Blood God :)

June 24, 2010

Hey folks - I'm still pretty fired up about doing a Khorne-themed Warriors of Chaos force, and momentum on the painting has been solid. So far I finished off a second unit of Warriors and a unit of Marauder Horsemen. I should note I plan to add banners (and musicians, in the case of the Warriors) as…

Blood for the Blood God!

June 19, 2010

So 8th edition Warhammer Fantasy has caught my attention: beautiful new book, many rules improvements and quite positive advance buzz. I decided to kick off a new army in preparation. After much thought I've decided to go with Warriors of Chaos in a Khorne theme. Khorne and Nurgle have been favorite…
