Wow, I have been slack here. No new posts since February. But I have done a ton of painting and completed several projects, not least of which is my Tallarn army for 40K. This is basically going to be a big photo dump of all the things I’ve been working on since then, with a […]
Last 15 posts from You And What Army?
Disassembled, old primer stripped, much cleaning (including time in an ultrasonic cleaner), re-based, new primer (Dupli-Color). I took pictures of each one before I pulled them apart, so I can put them back together the way Greg originally had them. No…
Well, here’s a great big photo dump showing the start to finish WIP on the Valkyrie/Vendetta I built for my Tallarn. The cockpit was fully painted before being put into the fuselage and then masked off, to prime the rest of the model. I also painted the interior of the passenger compartment. You can’t see […]
Finally got to play this tonight with my friend Stephen. We decided to do the intro scenario, where you basically just beat each other senseless without the fancy rules for hidden movement and ambushes and whatnot. The board has some Flames of War buildings on it. Not quite in scale but not too far off […]
I have finished the core infantry squads of my Tallarn force. Three squads of Veterans and a Command Squad. I still need to build out three more Tauroxes for their transport, then it’s on to the supporting units. Much more to come!
I realize I have not posted pics of the finished model here!
Here’s a nice big photo dump of my first few Tallarn minis. I am finally starting in on my long-standing desire to build a Tallarn Desert Raider force. They are going to be a light, fast raiding force, modeled on the historical British Army Long Range Desert Group in WW2. The infantry will all be […]
I have finished painting all the minis in the AQotMF starter set! Yay! The Tripods came out pretty nice. I just need to hit them with the semi-gloss. As you can see , the Tripods can switch weapons, so I can equip the Black Dust launcher and the Green Gas grenades to flush the pesky […]
My buddy Stephen and I played our second game of the campaign we have going “Operation Cyan Rapier.” I’ll talk about Phase (game) 1 later, but today’s game was the follow-on from that game in which the UCM managed to successfully extract a Praetorian insertion team that had gone into enemy territory to link up […]
Finished my first Martian Tripod for AQ. Very easy to do, and now that I have the paint scheme down, I should be able to bust the other two out quickly. Then it’s game time! Just sayin’ ‘Hi!’ Before… After…
Once I got going on the U.S. Army units in the AQoMF starter box, I knew they wouldn’t take too long. Minis at this scale (18mm) go much faster than 28s. Also, I had promised myself that when I finished them, I would paint the Martian Tripods. I’ve painted I don’t know how many G.I.s […]
Somehow, I have three projects going on at the moment – All Quiet on the Martian Front, some 40K and something for Chain of Command. Working on multiple projects at the same time is not too unusual for me, though I had sort of thought when I finished my Daemons I’d throttle back some. Obviously […]
Finished my basic infantry for All Quiet on the Martian Front. I like the way these guys came out, and I like that for the most part, they are charging forward (probably to certain death) to fight the Martian invaders! Decent sculpts overall for this scale. The rifles are a bit blocky but at tabletop […]
Just some quick pics of a quick job. The square bunker and trench line are from Alien Dungeon for All Quiet on the Martian Front. The round one and the shellholes I dunno where they came from. Spray primer, wash, drybrush, boom, done!
Played my first game of Chain of Command today. Finally got to use those G.I.s I painted a few months ago. Bit of a learning curve but a fun and interesting game. My Yanks vs. Chris’ Krauts. The pre-game positioning and movement to contact is very unique and cool. I like the way this game […]
