OTT: The Night Lords of Sleep Hollow

Be warned for the Headless Horde approacheth. I am just two plasma guns short from finishing my Night Lords up until they get heads and shoulder pads. Both are to ordered from GW bits, so may be a bit. I hope to begin my bases soon and try to get that working. The Loveland Library has a 3D printer, which I may utilize for the rhinos. I plan to use Legion Sicaran Battle Tanks for the basis for my scratch built rhinos. I think they have a more menacing look than my standard rhino scratch builds, and we all know hoe I feel about the puny stock rhinos(or at least do now).

It hasn't been all 40K though. I have started in on my paint job for the Death Marshals. This guy is my test piece. I think he is turning out really well, and I hope the "shadow effect" I plan to add doesn't mess it all up.

Until next time...

OTT: The Silence Is Broken!


Work continues on my Tara crew, but nothing in the past week. I have been kinda adverse to painting them, just not in the mood and a little unsure on where to go with them. I think I have an idea and hope to get back onto them soon.

What I have been working on instead is my new Night Lords army. Yes, I am aware I have a problem. I blame Nabors, I'm pretty sure he set me up. Anyway, the chosen are coming along nicely, and as you can see from previous posts, I am enjoying them immensely. My favorite bit so far is the flamers.

I also have some ideas for the Heldrakes and Daemon Princes, using the Vampire Counts Terrorgheists and Valgheists, respectably. Its gonna be sick, but not cheap, so may take a while to get everything finished.

Until next time... something something awesome something.

TMI: In the Tumult of Chaos

No late night gaming, though of course, the one time I didn't bring my X-Wing stuff, Paul is up for a game. What I did play, though, was Malifaux and 40K. I'll wait while you recover from the shock.

TMI: The Chosen One

This last weekend I finally had a go with my Chosen list, with a couple Heldrakes to test Nabors's new Space Marines, and I liked it. I also managed to squeeze in a game of Malifaux 2nd Edition versus Shaffer's Rasputina crew.

TMI: Bolt Action Malifaux

I managed to score a couple games this last Saturday, one of Malifaux, the other, a new face, Bolt Action.

OTT: Obliteration

While I was at Tacticon I received my newest addition to my Malifaux stuff, Tara, Herald of Obliteration. I have some gap filling to do, and hope to have the crew primed and at least ready to paint by this weekend. I also picked up some Guild Marshals to go with her. After avoiding the cursed red border for so long, who would have thought my first foray into Guild would be the most iconic of their minions?

Webway from Tacticon: Epic Fail

Okay, epic fail may be a bit harsh. Last weekend, we all headed down to Tacticon for some hard fought battles for supremacy. I felt super good about my Eldar/Dark Eldar force, thought I would do decent with my X-Wing list, and was worried about my 1 preregistration Malifaux tournament. So, how did it all go down? Guess you will just have to read on...
