I’ve been accumulating miniatures lately. This is both good and bad. It’s good because, it’s mostly cool stuff – some old-school Terminators, drop pods (3 of them!), an old Inquisitor model, etc, and they’ve all been given to me or scrounged out of unwanted bitz boxes or giveaway piles. What’s bad is, they enter my […]
Last 15 posts from You And What Army?
So, here’s the first Bloodletter I did. I used the Army Painter Dragon Red spray primer and the results are good so far. Instead of washing with brown, I tried purple and that worked really well. I also tried to do some NMM on the sword. Not super happy with that and I may just [...]
Finally got some Chaos Daemon models and started working on them. Ostensibly, I’m going to use them for the Kill Team campaign we’re doing at the store, but they’ll probably expand into a full army. I had a thought to go with Tzeentch as the base but my blackened soul thirsts for the blood of [...]
I’ve finished painting my SAGA warband (in time for game day on the 10th!). The minis are all by Gripping Beast. They painted up extremely fast compared to the time it took while I was doing my 40K minis, so quite pleased with that. It’s freed me up to start thinking about another project. Anyway, [...]
Managed to get in two games of SAGA last night (the short play time of SAGA is very attractive). Got creamed the first time and won the second. My opponent was Aaron G., who helps run the SAGA game days at the store. Aaron was playing a Norse-Gael army (sort of like Irish Vikings) and [...]
So, the SAGA game has got its axe in me and I’m furiously working on my Anglo-Danish army. I just finished basing them all and I hope to get them primed this weekend so I can start painting them proper. I did finish a unit of Huscarls, which you can see below. These guys are [...]
Right, 2012 is in the bag. As far as miniatures go for me, last year was all about 40K and Space Marines. I finished the 40K Fight Club 2012 Painting Challenge, which you can see at this link. Here’s a shot of the Command Squad I did to finish things up. With this lot done, [...]
I finished that Vindicator I was working on last month and got it into a game over the weekend. My opponent, Ian, likes to call them “Fail-cator” since he seems to have such bad luck with them, heh. But mine did pretty well. I blew up an Ork Battlewagon, killed some Killa Kans and a [...]
The year is coming to an end and as I’ve mentioned before, I’m thinking about what to do for next year. December will finish itself out with a Space Marine Command Squad, which will cap off the 40K FIght Club painting challenge I’ve been doing. And then on to 2013! I’ve got three candidates for [...]
Whoa, no posts for over a month! Sorry folks! I have indeed been busy. On the painting and modeling front, I finished a Landspeeder and a squad of Scout Snipers. Check out the slideshow for the pics! The Landspeeder is magnetized to switch out the bow and gunner’s weapons, and the side panels can be [...]
So, I’ve been working hard all year on the 40K Fight Club painting challenge. This month, I’m working on a unit of Scout Snipers. I love these guys, since you really have to be careful with them. Most things can wipe them out, but they can also do the same to most things, and at [...]
Here are some pics of the Space Marine Bikes and Attack Bike I finished recently. The gun mount is magnetized so I can switch the heavy bolter and multi-melta. The riders’ arms are magnetized too, for special weapons. Roll out!
I’m going to hold forth a few opinions about 40K 6th edition here. First, I do not consider myself an expert on the 40K game by any stretch. I only have a grand total of twelve 5th edition and five 6th edition games under my belt. That said, I am an experienced gamer, and my [...]
So, I’m working my way through the 40K Fight Club 2012 Painting Challenge and I’ve managed to keep up so far. By the end of the year, I should have my Space Marine collection properly bulked out and I’m starting to think about what I want to do for next year. I may or may [...]
I like converting minis. Always fun to come up with something original. I just finished a Terminator Chaplain which was a conversion based on one I saw on From The Warp. Although I added a few touches of my own, it wasn’t my original idea and I now want to do one of my own. [...]
