Dem bones!

February 11, 2012

Ok - 60 skeletons (ok for a hero) done. Finally. This took a long time because halfway through I had to travel to San Fran for a week. I captured most of the steps for these on video and will do a "speed painting skeletons" tutorial soon(ish). The photos make them look a wee bit too colorf…

Vampire Counts Vargheists Painted

January 17, 2012

Finished up the first set of new Vampire Counts models - a unit of 3 Vargheists (I may do more - but for the next box I think I want to paint Crypt Horrors!). These were fun and relatively painless to paint - I wanted to try a darker color scheme than the official pale skinned ones. I also took a lo…

Arachnarok Spider - finished!

September 9, 2011

Wow - this is an amazing model, but also quite a difficult undertaking. I found it took me a long time to paint (although traveling a lot for business didn't help). In particular the howdah is very detailed and took a long time!  I enjoyed the spider more than the howdah :)

Lots of images in the ga…

Skaven Hellpit Abomination Finished

January 25, 2011

Just put the finishing touches on this guy - when photos first leaked online of the model I'm not sure if I was really impressed. But now, having worked on it, I think this is an incredible model. As I was painting it I felt like I was constantly discovering details - and not in a bad way. It really…

More Skaven join the army

October 24, 2010

Hey guys - decided the models below are likely going to be permanent fixtures in my army so I gave them proper paintjobs. I didn't paint the fire on the little rats on purpose, I felt they would distract from the team and also look kinda silly.

New Vampire Counts Showcase Video

October 5, 2010

Hi everyone - I completed the Blood Knights and along with that I have put the finishing touches on another showcase video, including music and sound effects appropriate for October :)  This also takes the army north of 3000 points. Aaaaaand I will have to sell it soon.  That's the deal I have with …

Blood Knights Teaser

October 3, 2010

I picked up a box of the new Dragon Princes and assembled them yesterday, and *almost* got them finished today as "counts as" Blood Knights for my VC force. The main reason I can't get them done is the giant banner - I need to figure out how to approach it because I suck at freehand and dont have an…

More Grave Guard

September 29, 2010

So! I've added to the Grave Guard unit and now have 30 of them. With the completion of that unit, I now have 3000 points of Vampires painted. I am, however, still tempted to paint some of those new Dragon Prince models as Blood Knights (they are being released this weekend). We'll see.

Cairn Wraiths and a Banshee

September 26, 2010

Today I decided to add a small unit of  Cairn Wraiths and a Banshee to the Vampire Counts army. After finishing these, I'm 10 Grave Guard away from 3000 points. Basically I went to GW, picked up a box of Empire Flagellants and a metal Banshee and whipped them up in an ethereal color scheme. Pretty h…

Another Vampire

September 25, 2010

Two updates in one day - crazy. This guy was lying around primed in my office for a LONG, long time. Today I decided to paint him - took me a couple of hours. His eyes look better in person, I think the camera is making the red of them flare a bit.

This could serve as a Lord on foot or just a basic …

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…

A couple more games with Skaven

September 18, 2010

So this marks a major milestone for me - this is the first time I've played more than 1 game with any of the Warhammer armies I've painted (including 40k) other than the Tyranids. Maybe there's a long term commitment here with these rats!

Tonight I finished up my second game vs Robin's lizards (aaaa…

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.

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 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…
