Its beginning to look a lot like Fantasy

Say what?!? Yep, it is true, I am starting to get back into Warhammer Fantasy. I will pause while you recover.... Good? OK, here we go. So, I have been looking at Ogres for a long time, but my previous group already had an Ogre player and I had gone with Tomb Kings. Well, with my TK losing its flavor and thus my enjoyment, I was looking at them again, off and on. With High Elves and Lizardmen magic being "nerfed"(I am assured it is so) I was looking at them again. When I was asked for Christmas ideas, I seized my chance. The result? A box of Ogres. A modest start, but a start none the less. So I proxied a 800 point list and got a couple games in against Troy on Friday. Of course, I couldn't go a whole weekend with out a game of Malifaux, so I threw down against Troy on Saturday on the Pumping Station board. But, first up, Fantasy.

Army Amnesty Day

The day after Christmas, I headed on down to Longmont. Hobby Quest was putting on their annual Army Amnesty day, and with the kids off to their uncle's wedding, I wanted in. I managed to get in a couple games against David, the guy I played against last time. Troy also made it down and was able to wreck David's day.

A scuffle in the middle

I was super late to the party on Saturday, not making it in until 5:30, but I still managed to snag a game versus Troy's Zoraida crew, before diving into Dark Heresy.

It can not be!

But it is! I have indeed put paint to brush on Izamu. Not much, I just painted his leg covers and back banner flags. I am still not sure how I am going to do the armor, but I am leaning towards a purple lacquer to tie the red and blue together. We shall see.

Also, for any who care, I have decided to remove the post type tag at the front of the title. The acronyms seem like they would be archaic for anyone who hasn't read the post however so long ago. So, they are gone. It still should be easy to tell though. Is my mess of a paint station in the background, or is it a table top.

Well, its off to Christmas shop, I may return to painting Izamu today... Or Joss. I guess only time, and another post, will tell.

OTT: Joss doin' sum paintin'

OK, that was terrible, but look Joss. I had almost written him off, planning to cancel my order, since he was continually out of stock, and the Large Arachnid can give me the double scrap for less. Then he showed up, and I try not to be "eh, nevermind" when my long orders come in, so I grabbed him. I have only been working on him a little bit, but I think he is coming along nicely. Izamu is still giving me the eye, but I may be working on him soon. Not necessarily finishing, but I think I have a plan for my next step.

Well, back to painting. Hopefully Joss will be done this weekend.

TMI: Double Dip

Work forgot to schedule me this week, or some system error, or whatever, the result? I was "given" the weekend off. Not good for the wallet, but did allow me to get in two full days of gaming. Three games plus Deathwatch/Dark Heresy, a pretty good haul for a weekend. How did the games go? Read on to find out.

OTT: Marut for table 1

I managed to get her finished up today. I am still not about the base, but it works better than I had originally thought, so it may stay. At least until I get a better suggestion. Her sword is the pink glazed over Charadon Granite, it came out a strange purple/rust color(depending on light). I know the shot above doesn't show it well, poor back drop. What? Never said I was a professional, and nobody has ever accused me of it either.

If anyone is interested, I will have her tomorrow at Hobby Town, and may even play a game of Infinity. Hope to catch you there.

OTT: To Infinity and beyond... again

I am finally closing in on finishing my Infinity Marut. As many of you may know, I have fallen in and out of Infinity since I picked it up. This Marut has been in a state of limbo for a while now, and his Dakini and Garuda still languish there. But, with the completion of the Marut, maybe they will soon follow.

Currently, I only have the sword to finish and the base. I have no idea how to do the base. You can see in the picture where I contemplated a circuit board base, but I'm not sure that works. Please, if anyone has any ideas, leave them in the comments.

Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, you are my only hope.

TMI: Leveticus goes elite

I managed to squeeze in a game of Malifaux against Troy in on Saturday. I ran the newest Leveticus against his Zoraida crew. I went with what was then Pariah of Iron, it has since changed to Pariah of Ash. He went with a heavily minion crew. More on that after the break.

TMI: Quadro-faux?

I managed to get in four games over the weekend, two on Friday versus Troy and two on Saturday versus the new Michael and Shaffer. I think I only managed to really come out on top in one game. More on that to come.
