The Table

Due to a sever lack of projects on my part, I have decided to add another. What am I thinking? Not a clue. There has been a 4'x4' board partially started just sitting at the club since long before my time. It is a tiered board, with a couple caves, and the start to a river. Originally I was going to put a vote in the forums to decide what type of board it should be, grass, desert, or snow. I went to mention this to Shaffer and he just in passing called it the cave board and an idea was born. An underground cavern(as opposed to an above ground one). This board will have stalactites and stalagmites and various other rock formations. I have yet to decide if it will have man made lighting(i.e. torches) or not. I will be keeping the river, only countersinking it into the board as opposed to the current raised bank.

This will likely be an-at-the club project, as I have no intention of bringing it home. I may also swipe some club funds for features from the store, as this will be a club table. I also should be working on Malifaux tables at home, so more terrain there would be bad.

I plan to post my progress, though I may move it to the KoGT blog, as it will be a club project.

Webway to Tacticon: Hellions hath no fury


A quick double update this week. I managed to finish my Hellions that had heads and get them on the sky boards. I was just to excited to wait. I had thought these guys a ways off, and had started on the boards as a bit of a break, but when I came back to work on them I was pleasantly surprised that they did not have much left to do at all.

You can also see the Baron off to the right. He is currently getting his cape finished. I have finished the brocade on the top of the cape and am trying to decide if I need to do it on the bottom or not. Probably yes, sigh. Then its the decal, repaint, touch up, a couple details left, and he will be done, too.

I am really happy with how this army is coming and am getting fairly close to finishing the whole thing. I hope to be very close to finished by the next time I get to play in almost three weeks.

And since this quick post as turned rather long, I'm off.

Webway to Tacticon: More Hellions!


This is what has been on my paint table for the last week. I haven't been terribly productive, but I have been moving forward. As you can see, I have three more skyboards almost finished, and am almost finished with all my canopies. I am also making gains on the Hellions I had and the Baron.


I also have all my Hellions. These three are missing heads, as I am not using the Hellion heads, but rather the Reaver pony tail heads. So, until I get more of those, the riders themselves are in limbo. The boards you see here are the ones that are already painted in the previous picture. I managed to all but finish them on Friday. All they have left is gems and engine discoloration. I hope to have both done by the time this posts. This week I also hope to get the jetbikes painted and the canopies on. I won't get in any games next Saturday due to the warmahordes tourney and International Table Top Day. But, by the next time I play, I should have the actual bikes finished, and be well on the way for the riders.

TMI: WarmaWin


I didn't get as many games in this week, since after hours was devoted to Deathwatch. I also showed up late, since all my early gamers kinda flaked. But the games I got were good, two warmahorde games and a partial Malifaux.

TMI Does It All


I managed to get in several games this weekend across three different systems. I managed my first Warmachine win and some more losses, a rematch in Malifaux, and a 40K that was pretty close to tournament play in that I made some bad mistakes. Would you like to know more?

Webway to Tacticon: Issue 2

Here it is. I have a box of five hellions coming and I need to snag the cold one knights, and that will be my entire army. Still some work left to do, I have only really put in a bit on the Hellions I already have, but they are coming along. The points are apparently going to 2k, so that has brought a little problem.

TMI: All fOr Nothing

Only managed to get in one game yesterday, and it wasn't Malifaux.

Webway to Tacticon 2013


I get to play at Tacticon, so I am getting my Eldar/Dark Eldar force up to snuff. These posts are going to be a bit of progress log of the army as it comes together. At this last paint night I finally finished my Farseer's banner. Of course I need a second one, and I'm not real sure how I'm going to go for that one. I also put paint to Hellion, finally puching those guys past the limbo they have been stuck in. The boards are almost finished, and I am on detail work for the Hellions themselves. As you can see in the above picture, I have cut my display board. I am using a hardboard base with foam core on top, so I can sink my bases into it. I was hoping to have a lot of foresty scenic effects, but as you can see, I don't have a ton of room. It will likely have two or three trees, and a webway portal, though the portal will quite a bit farther forward, since I don't want much of the models to have the pure war zone base.

Well, that's the jist for now, hopefully I will keep this up with regular reports. Till next time...

TMI: Warmawhat?

Managed to get in a game of Malifaux before Demo Day and the league started. I also played half of a game of Blood Bowl versus James and finished up with game of Warmahordes(gasp!).

TMI: Killing Opponents

Almost time for another gaming day, and I still haven't gotten the reports out for the last day. I'm such a slacker. Anywho, I managed to get in two games last weekend, well, really one and a half. The first game was against Tom, the second half a game was versus Troy's Dreamer.
