Yeah, it's spelled Judgement in Australian. The company is Australian. Do US 40k players refer to Grey Hunters as Gray Hunters? Well they shouldn't.Anyway, this is one of my favorite reason to play Judgement. Throw minis in a box, even painted ones, and travel to an event. If you're feeling nervous, stuff said box with tissues and bubble wrap.I think I have a grand total of 6-7 games played total now. Cute game. I like trying to figure out who or what the characters represent from other media.
Finished painting Brok a few weeks ago. You can see him here.I didn't realize he was a Dwarf. Yes, it's right there in his model description (Brok "Dwarf Berserker"), but I don't often make time to play Judgement given that if I have the time to play, I'm going to play Warmachine.I was concerned about the large swathes of skin on the model, so I tried to paint some tattoo patterns I found on the Internet. I used a brush marker to trace this wing-like pattern on his chest and back, and then I painted over the brush marker using an off blue color.That turned out to be a mess, so I went over the blue against by adding black lining with the brush marker, so now it's just a little acceptable.With Brok I'm now caught up on my Judgement goal. If I play a game it will be to bring Skye, Brok, Saiyin, Allandir, and someone else I can't think of the name of (I feel bad because the people who post on the Judgement facebook group helped me pick the models with the understanding that Skye had to be in the mix somewhere).I
I swear someday there will be a rhyme and reason to the stuff I decide to work on and not.
Friday was Day 3 for AdeptiCon and it did not go as scheduled for myself. My son went downstairs early for his Batman Miniatures Game tournament and I was heading down an later and I was entered in the X-Wing System Open Qualifier. At the last minute I decided to bail out on the event and continue to check out the vendor hall.I wanted to get in a demo game of Arestia! from Corvus Belli, so one of the founders of Corvus Belli, Carlos game taught me how to play the game. This was the game I was eyeing before coming to AdeptiCon as a quick play game to have done within an hour. I enjoyed the game a lot, so stay tuned next week for some posts about it.When I was done with the vendor hall for the morning, I decided to head upstairs for lunch and a quick break before heading back down with my Guild Ball stuff. If someone was going to ask to play, I might as well get a game in.While watching my friend Josh play a friendly with his Fisherman's Guild, Alex Botts (World's #1 Player) asked
Allandir was my 7th painted Judgement model? I think so.He's got olive green fatigues, explosive arrows tipped in ochre/yellow, and camo striping all over his body. It's a little hokey, but I like the effect overall.
Painted up Neo, I mean Keaneo, I mean Skye, the elf Monk of Judgement. He's a Defender, so he uses his mystical martial arts (and presumably his innate connection with the Mat...er...world around him) to protect those fighting beside him.This model is the reason I bought into Judgement at all. I just hope Keanu doesn't mind that I painted him as a blonde with a greentoned kung fu shrobe (can't call it a shirt, can't call it a robe). Some of my other choices of models to paint are based around having access to Skye.And pity the fool who bans Skye out from me!
These days to get through my piles of unpainted miniatures I try to complete more projects than I prime, which is how I got the concept of the Seal: Prime ratio. Basically, whenever I seal or prime I pretty much have to wait until I have the house to myself so I can run the kitchen vent and air things out that way as I run models into and out of the garage for sprays.My piles of unpainted stuff has been growing and the only way I can think to get a handle on things (aside from buying less) is to try to keep things in packaging as long as possible and not assemble too many things I'm not prepared to paint.This time around I sealed maybe 27 or so models and only primed 19. Even though that's a net gain on paint progress, it's not what I wanted it to be. I got kind of rushed because my Judgement stuff came in.Hopefully this doesn't sink any further progress on my part. I have set up some 20 models to paint on my desk now, and maybe 10-20 more in the basement that will help future ratios. Time will tell if this a
From the Judgement News BlogShrines in the 54mm Judgement game are objectives you control that help generate the game's main action resource: Fate. However, they're adding a twist, and a new model that they can produce, by making character shrines.Basically you control the shrine and you can pay Fate to keep the Earth Elemental on your team. It's slow, though, and paying Fate every turn to keep him while losing the shrine that helped you generate said Fate is going to be a bit of a challenge.I suppose someone could play gutsy and control both shrines. Generate fate at one and turn the other one into Terra. That should be hilarious if anyone is able to capitalize on anything like that.This was kind of a lazy post. I've been holed up all day with illness. Hoping to make more time for hobby tomorrow.
Came home from work to find I had not been burgled. My Judgement minis came. I'd say that means it's time to get off my butt and finish what's already on my table to make room for some sweet 54mm goodness,I'm behind schedule on my "12 months of Judgement" though, a pledge I made when I expected the models sooner than this. A quick glance through the pile tells me that everything I wanted to paint is in there.Looking at the minis in their little baggies is about as far as I've gotten.Time to get off my Case of the Mondays and start.Tomorrow.
It's been a week, and there's stuff to look at.Like weathervane head here. He's a weapon attachment for the upcoming Infernals faction in Warmachine (I believe they're calling the Hordes logo on this stuff a mis-label), and given that some of the preview spoilers featured weird blobs of flesh as units, does that mean human warriors accompany the flesh things or do the humans come with their own infantry in infernals like some kind of mixed sylvaneth force? Time may tell...Harlequin Versh is a minicrate model of the Order of Illuminati hunter guy, Harlan Versh.While seemingly out of character for the guy (the original model looks very much like above. Grim and stalwart, pointing his gun at evil, as one does), the contrast between the steady stance and what will be a motleyed coat with peasant cape may prove to be a game winner. Quite a few don't seem to like it already, though.They can send me their stuff if they like. I'll have an army of Harlequins named Versh.Then Gunmeister games previewed their Undead Dea
This was no draft game between Chad and me. The Bears in the picture are our effigies (I think they're called) and the big rock is the one that gives you the fate.Yeah, obviously Chad is the one running this show. I hardly know the names of things.I told Chad what I wanted to play and he tried to balance a matchup with his full collection. I had Thrommel, Thorgar, and Saiyin, while he went ahead with Sir Marcus, Zhonjya, and Bastian.Gloom popped up and Thorgar killed him, got to level 2 and bought a Vorpal Blade. From there, I moved Saiyin in to support and heal Thorgar, capture the first Soul despite the encroaching presence of Sir Marcus in his defensive posture, and Thrommel went to secure the Shrine for more fate.I was mostly up throughout the game, getting two or three souls and then struggling to bank them securely. Zhonyja and Sir Marcus sent Thorgar back to my effigy, and Thrommel largely went uncontested at the shrine. Juiced up on fate, the team did all kinds of things I couldn't imagine because rea
News update for the game Judgement: Gunmeister Games has laid out their release plans for 2019, and the plans include what looks like about 4 models and a few other things for their MOBA inspired game.At first when I heard them say that their next hero release was going to be Itchynads, the Goblin Hunter, I wanted to know if he was a goblin who hunted, or a hunter of goblins. Then they released an image and rules and it was all made clear.It will be interesting to see how the game continues to take shape. They did a massive kickstarter hero release to where there are over 20 of the 54mm miniatures for the game. To give you an idea, the game is based on 3v3 or 5v5 matchups, so having 20 models is plenty now for what they plan to do. Adding 3-4 models in the course of 12 months might seem small, but the number can be impactful if the models themselves see play or cause others to change what they choose to play. (There are versions of the game that allow for pick and bans when developing your roster, so introduc
