What’s That I See?

You can never have enough missile launchers!

A couple of friends came over today and we painted in my hobby room for several hours. It was a great time and we all got a lot done. I wanted to work on something I’d see on the battlefield soon, so I worked on this little scout with a camo cloak & a missile launcher.

I’m not entirely happy with this conversion, but he’ll look fine on the tabletop. These scouts paint up very quickly, which is nice. I might even be able to get him finished in the next day or two.

Death to the False Emp… er… Death to the Traitors!

Will showed up last night with a team of GW’s terrific looking new heretic Astartes (mostly) painted. He’s going with an Alpha Legion paint scheme, which looks great on these detailed models. I played my Eremoi Dark Angels as usual.

We played a match with five objectives, scoring points after each turn. Control of closer objectives was worth one point each, those on the opponent’s side were worth two, and the central objective granted three points to anyone brave enough to take it.

I gotta say, I still love the way the board & ruins look. Might have to make another board soon! Continue reading “Death to the False Emp… er… Death to the Traitors!”

Make-Up’s Finished

I put the face on this guy and he’s all set but the Dullcote.

Like I said before, I wasn’t crazy about the scheme and I’m not 100% on the reivers in general, so I bashed him out quickly. Oddly, given my ambivalence, I’m pretty happy with him; I think it comes down to how quickly I finished him off. Now it’s time to test him in battle!

Built for Speed

I’ve worked up a very quick reiver sarge since my return from vacation.

I need to paint the mask and a few gubbins and I’ll call him finished. To tell the truth, I don’t much like the color scheme/lay-out I applied, so I don’t want to sink a lot of time into him. If he fares well on the tabletop I’ll be following up with some more swift-footed pals shortly.
