House Lakar

Posted on April 21st, 2015 under , . Posted by

I finished painting and flocking the last of the Knights over the past couple of weeks. I still might head back and put some Woodland Scenics course flock on the bases for bushes. Everytime I use that stuff though I’m never impressed with the results t…

There’s Only One Way to Rock

Posted on April 17th, 2015 under , . Posted by

Work continues with the basing and the puttying. I cast up some Woodland Sceneics rocks in resin and scatted them over a quarter of my bases and also added some bigger sand here and there.

I was planning on putting Lord Hob on a rock but couldn’t find…

All Your Based Are Filled in Resin

Posted on April 10th, 2015 under , . Posted by

I got tired of waiting for the bases I ordered to come in, so I canceled that order and decided to work with those that came with the minis.

To add some weight to them I added washers and then filled with up with resin. Overall it was pretty quick and…

Ravenscar Mercs

Posted on April 2nd, 2015 under , . Posted by

Work continues on the Goritsi. I got the Ravenscar mercenaries built this week along with Lord Hob and Iron Eyes.

Looks like I won’t need too much putty on most of these. There’s a few hands with sprue gates in them that will need filling but only the…

I made some good progress on the Knights, just haven’t taken any new pics yet. Here’s what I’ve been working on the past few weeks on lunch breaks. First up is my second unit of Skorza skirmishers. I didn’t like the looks of the spear hafts that came w…

Adepticon 2015

Posted on March 23rd, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Here are some shots from games this past Adepticon.
This year’s Epic tournament. We had two drop out, unfortunately, and were even (unfortunately for me). My knights did get in one game though when Eric sat out so I could play. We had a Space Marine, I…

King Me!

I did a lot of checkers this week… A lot. Beyond that, nothing much. I’ve got a few my knight nights before Adepticon though so I think I’ll be good. I’m hoping to work on the metal today and do touch-up and bases next week.

I don’t think I’ll get t…

Still on Track

Posted on March 6th, 2015 under , . Posted by

Work continues. I might have overdone the last highlight on these. We’ll see how they look after touchup.

It was a pretty productive week, I finished the yellow, blue, eyes and most of the decals. At this point there’s a few decals to go (custom cut o…

Sadly down to monthly updates, but work continues. The yellow is nearing completion. I have two more highlights and a glaze on 28 of the Knights.

After that, I either head back and do the blue on them or start focusing just on what I’ll need for Adept…

New Year, Old Army

Posted on January 9th, 2015 under , . Posted by

Continuing on with the Knights for Adepticon. This week I blocked out all of the yellow on the Baron and Lancers. I’m thinking of doing checkers on the Baron’s left shin rather than yellow, as there’s not going to be enough room for me to do on the shi…

2014 – Last Call for Painting!

Posted on December 23rd, 2014 under , . Posted by

A sad month for updates, so here’s one for the road, 2014. I finished up a Paladin Household for EpiComp, the Knights in front are done and the ones in back are awaiting yellow highlights and all the details.

I added a pennant to the seneschal to furt…

le Monkey Sails Against Von Dave

My buddy Eric over at Direct Fire and I had our first full fleet maiden voyage of Man O’ War this past Saturday. I took some shots and got to use the handy counters I got for the game.

All Yellow, All the Time!

Posted on November 11th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

Started a slight tangent for this weekend, after glueing some pennants on my Man O’ War Empire fleet last week I put down the base coats and washes on each.

The colors are different enough to keep the squadrons separate, I’d like to add decals at some…

Yellow-fication Continues

Posted on October 30th, 2014 under , . Posted by

Still working on the yellow, I’ve managed all the Paladins and the Castellans at this point.

I also took a Seneschal a few steps further. Aside from touch-up and highlights on the metal this guy is pretty much done. Any thoughts or suggestions? The y…

Painting Yellow, Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That

Posted on October 8th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

I’ve been working on the Knights these past weeks. As a heads up, painting yellow is SLOW. You think I would have taken the Internet’s word on it, but no. I didn’t get a chance to paint this Monday, but last Monday I blocked out the blue and did one Kn…
