Some shots from this past weekend. They’re mostly from my games but I did manage to snap some shots of the other games as well as some army shots at the end. Enjoy!

Some pics from the other weekend. We had a few cancellations that last week and only ended up with 5 people. Much 10mm death was dished out, roast beef eaten and road travelled looking for a restaurant that would host us for dinner. Enjoy!

Mitsurugi Yell Goes Here

I got a good deal on some Bushido miniatures earlier this summer and on a lark this past week I started to paint up Chiyo of the Ito Clan for Bushido. Lots of fine detail on her, I’ll try to get some better lighting on the face as I spent a good amount…

Keep Arikania Beautiful

I finished up Iron Eyes this week. My biggest complaint with this model was the lack of detail on the face. Her features were very soft/undefined. I’d be interested to see if there was a resin version and how it compares. Anyway, I think I going to mak…

Lord of the Scottish Hibachi Chefs

Posted on September 13th, 2015 under , . Posted by

I finished up Lord Hob this morning. I tried out some blood and gore using Tamiya X-27 Clear Red, a black and dark brown. I stippled the mixture onto the mace as it was starting to become tacky.

Iron Eyes is next, then the wolves.

Scottish Hibachi Chefs – Reboot

Posted on September 11th, 2015 under , . Posted by

I finished these guys up last week but forgot to take a picture at my desk (so the lighting isn’t great).

So this is squad two, and Lord Hob is nearly done now as well (just needs grass and maybe some gore on his mace). I’m hoping to get to that this …

Thunder Thunder Thunder Thunderbolts!

I finished these up last week in preparation for NEAT. I forgot how quick 6mm tanks and the like paint up, these took 2-3 hours each. I have some Marauders that are close to done as well, I held off though as I wanted to put some lascannons on them.

NEAT8 – The Ocho

We had our eighth annual Northeast Epic Armageddon Tournament (NEAT) this past Saturday. We had 17 people show up (lost 4 the last week :() for a three round tourney on Saturday. We also snuck in a couple games on Friday night and Sunday too. Enjoy!

Scottish Hibachi Chefs – End Game

I never got around to taking shots of these before the tourney this past weekend. Anyway, here they are: my first squad of Ravenscar. I started in on the eyes and skin of the second squad, but I’m heading back to 6mm land to finish some Thunderbolts fo…

Scottish Hibachi Chefs – The Quickening

Posted on May 15th, 2015 under Posted by

Sorry about the color. I had the camera on the wrong white balance. Work continues anyway.

I took this guy a few steps ahead of everyone just to figure out my colors. I need to finish his leathers, cloak and metals.

The rest are playing catchup, they…

I meant to post these last week but ended up leaving the memory card at home. The Scourge Hound alternate is done, I finished up the last of the putty work on her hood. Once the Shield Breaker alternate is done they’ll both get the primer.

I also fini…

House Lakar

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…
