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…

I Started a Mini Company

I forgot to mention it here, but I did a Kickstarter back in June: 10mm German Landsknechte with Zweihänder (Great Swords). It was funded and I’ve since received both the Zweihänder and the Pikemen production models:

Once I’ve fulfilled the pledges…

Painting ADHD at its Finest

Posted on September 10th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

I finished putting together my SM/TL airforce. The only thing I want to do before I prime the Thunderbolts is fill in the gaps in the cables where the wings meet the fuelselage.

The Marauders also had their underslung Lascannon(?) removed because I th…

Bravely run away, away!

So apparently I have a painting blog, who would of thought? The last couple of months have been quiet on the update-front, but only because assembly isn’t all that exciting. Anyway, I’ve been working on my Knights. Here’s some Paladins.

And some more …

Free Mustache Rides!

The Heirophant’s body got finished up this week. All that’s left for him are his weapons. I’m hoping to tackle those tomorrow and start working on my three additional Harridans.

Here a size comparison with my Dom, he’s still pretty big even with the …

I think you’re an abysmal winner…

Worked on the red hair tonight. I’m pretty happy with it. I might add one more highlight, not sure yet.

I also starting messing around with the mesh part of the armor. I’m thinking it’s going to be a light grey while the armor itself will be a dark gr…

The D is Silent

Been slacking on the updates. The second Heirodule’s done, I’m working on the ‘phant now. In other news, I started painting this guy for YakTribes Hireling Comp. It’s an old Space Wolf Scout Sergeant that I’m calling a Ratskin Bounty Hunter. The Aquill…

Did he… pinch you?!?!

Posted on May 16th, 2014 under , . Posted by

The first Heirodule’s all built. I finished up the body and weapons this week, magnetizing all six of them for maximum flexibility. I’ll be finishing up the second one this week and working on the ‘phant as well. After that it’s on to the three Harrida…

Chilly Bugs

I finished up eight bases of trees for the snow terrain, just four more to go. I picked up three bags of 21 trees for something like $12 at a Home Depot right after Christmas. They’re normally $6 a bag, which is still pretty cheap at $0.30 a tree. I’m …

Call the Orkin Man

Posted on May 1st, 2014 under , , . Posted by

I’ve been slowly building and converting these past weeks. First up are some shots of my Heirodules. I never liked how these things walked on four legs and on the tops of their claws while looking up at the sky, so some heavy converting was called for….

What are our words?

Posted on April 24th, 2014 under . Posted by

So I came across a can of flexible rubber coating while in Home Depot last weekend. It’s different from those that I seen before in that it’s white, and it’s not meant to be peeled off. I used to get my mats from, but he’s since close…

Ready to Play

Posted on April 17th, 2014 under , . Posted by

I finished up the Orlocks I played with at Adepticon this past week. My Juves, Heavy Bolter and second leader will be benched until I circle back around again. I’m pretty happy with how these came out. At somepoint I might try to paint some road lines …
