Star Wars Hoth Project Update

Hello everyone.  Many projects are seeing some excellent progress currently.  My main focus is on running my Star Wars Hoth game at PacifiCon over the labor day weekend here in the US.I'd like to say, this project wouldn't be possible without the AWESOME Golden Candle Miniature Painting - thank you Michael!  More on them once I have everything pulled together for this --- and I take far better pictures than what you'll see here today ...First, one of my favorite pictures of Echo Base I've seen ...This single picture is driving my concept for this game.  For the Ion Cannon (or, giant boob nipple gun as it is called in the Family Guy Star Wars spoofs), looking at the painting result to be as follows ...I picked up the free (Thingiverse) model and cleaned it up/resized and 3D printed it.  Model and result below ...This is about the size of a small soccer ball ... should be a nice terrain element on the tabletop when completed.I'll be fielding 3 x AT-AT - 3D printed from the model availab

KublaCon 2019 Convention Report

Another KublaCon has come and gone along with a weekend full of top notch miniature gaming.The Toulon Harbor crew ready for action!I continue to be impressed with the quality of miniature gamers that show up at KublaCon.  Across the board we had great players throughout all of our games - which as a GM makes running the games much easier.Here's is what we ran:Battle of Roncevaux Pass - This is a scenario Roy Scaife put together.  28mm Napoleonic game with British, Spanish and Portuguese fighting against the French.Battle for the Forest Moon of Endor - 32mm Star Wars Bolt Action (Legion).  Dan Kerrick brought this battle to life.  Rebels have landed on the forest moon of Endor to bring down the shield generator that is protecting the orbiting Death Star.Charge of the Haradrim - 28mm Lord of the Rings SBG.  I expanded scenario covering the Mûmaks charging against the Rohan forces just after they've run through the ranks of Orcs laying siege to Minas Tirith.  I add more Riders of Ro

Last of Imperial Assault--really!

No, for reals this time, this is the last of the Imperial Assault commission I took on. There was one lonely Gomorrean guard who needed painting and basing to match on of his colleagues. I managed to knock this off over the weekend despite the allure of the bike, kayak and garden.Up next: Some rebased 1/72-scale War of 1812 Americans. Just need to touch up a few rifle barrels that shed their paint during rebasing.

Holiday Break

I'm about to go on vacation, so this is basically my April output:A necromancer for Age of Sigmar Skirmish/ Warcry. Very pleased with how he turned out!An AT-RT for Star Wars: Legion. This guy was long overdue but I chickened out doing the LED mod and airbrushing the camo pattern. Finally took my brave pills and did both last week.

Post Adepticon Breakdown Part Two: Assault on Kings Landing, Space Hulk and Star Wars Legion

Back with my continues coverage of Adepticon 2019.Check out part 1 here where I talk about my first impressions of A Song of Ice and Fire game, Horus Heresy Knight Fight, and the Kings of War Big Battle.I skipped my first game to sleep and paint that day. It was an ASoIF even, but only cost me $5, and I made the better decision considering how late I stayed up to finish for the 40k team event the next day.I did make it to my second game, which was ASoIF Assault on Kings Landing. What made this game extra fun was it was ran by the game's designer. He had a really cool mission put together where the 8 players (mostly Starks and Boltons) fought his Lannister Army. I was that little green blob of Wildlings led by Tomund Giantsbane. Not the most accurate thing, but awesome of him to let my do that when asked who my favourite character was when he realized he didn't have enough units set up for us. He also had a constant narrative progression happening. AND BRIBES. He'd bribe up with free models to do certain actio

Imperial Settlers and Rancor

This week was club night and Terry hosted a game of Imperial Settlers. I had a hoot! What a pleasant and interesting game of resource management.George also hosted a WW2 plane game that I did not get a chance to watch.I have been doing a bit of painting to finish off a commission (some broken pieces that the manufacturer replaced for the owner).I finished the Rancor. What a lovely model! And huge!I left it glossy as all of the movie stills show it as a touch damp or slimy.I had some trouble getting a decent shot--it looks much nicer in person than these photos show off.Up next: I have on last gormorrian guard who is underway and hopefully some western gaming.

End Of The Week - Not My Best Work (15)

Earlier on I was expecting a much busier day. The time of year and the end of daylight savings time, with some lack of sleep made and with what I was expecting to be doing today made time look a little short. Sunday is usually the day I do any last minute work to finish of my plan for the week. So I was was relatively happy when on the way to a jog I tripped over the curb, skinned my knee and fingers and did some damage to my foot. With all plans out of the window it was back home to put my leg up. And paint.Despite some misgivings I have achieved my plan and surpassed my expectations. The New, New Cruelty is happy. I have tinkered about with some terrain and got along way through the prepping process for a load of figures. Not a bad week.Some of the figures this week have been a bit entertaining to paint. The Rebels and the Star Saga scientists suffer from some flatness of detail. Nothing wrong with this but it is difficult to make them shine. The three Malifaux figures were good fun to paint. Lots of nice d

Quick Start

Another week of working hard looks like it is in the offing. Already I am getting static from all quarters and I need to find even more paperwork. Still, enough griping as I also have some painting to do.So another mixed bag this week. Last year I was all about getting blocks of stuff done. This ended with big queues and feeling just a little demotivated. At the moment, this really is working for me. So four more Mantic Star Saga figures are on the table. I did a little bit on these last week. There is one Artizan Designs cowboy which has been hanging around as well. the biggest chunk will be the Star Wars Legion Rebels. These have been staring at me for a few weeks now so probably time to crack on with them. Lastly there are three Malifaux figures. I plan to spend some extra time on these and get them as perfect as I can. It's about time I did something with them. They cost enough when I got them and they have been gathering dust for ages. Maybe it will push me into doing something practical with them.
