Happy New Year! I hope you are all doing well and looking forward to another year of hobbies! I had intended to get this model done to be my last model for 2019, but things didn’t pan out that way, so now it has the honor of being my first model for 2020!

Warcry: Splintering Some Fangs

mvimg_20191207_134313

It’s been a while since my last post finishing up my wood elf team for Blood Bowl, I haven’t been idle, I’ve just been lousy about blogging. In the mean time I’ve painted up a warband of Warcry! Like the rest of my WSTZ compatriots I was smitten by the release of Warcry. Seeing all the warbands made especially for the setting of the Eight Points really got my blood pumping, but one in particular got my venom pumping.

Under the Brush: Tale of Tuesdays Part 3

IMG_20190914_163752

Well, even though I based up these three minis this weekend with time to spare for the Tale of Painters’ Tale of Tuesdays challenge, I forgot to take a nice photo of my minis. So here’s this one I shared with my buddies over the weekend from my work table. One catcher and two linemen. The lineman on the right got a slight conversion, an arm swap with a wardancer, just to give a little more variety to the pose.

Scandalous unpainted picture below!

Under the Brush: Wood Elves for Tale of Tuesdays

img_20190721_230326

The day after I wrote my unboxing for the new Games Workshop Atherlorn Avengers kit, I started painting some minis for the Blood Bowl painting challenge put on by Tale of Painters. If you’ve seen my post on the Blood Bowl Community over on Facebook, I’ve been playing around a lot with Photoshop trying to nail down my team colors. While my Arsenal and Codillion Clarions color schemes got lots of likes, in the end I decided to go with a Celtic inspired theme. I felt this was both sporty and fit with the nature aesthetic I felt most wood elf teams would go for. Continue reading

New Citadel Metallics

img_20190621_222632

In all the hubbub about the new Contrast paints, some new colors added to the classic Citadel range have kind of been forgotten about. Some of these are colors that used to be part of the Forge World paint range but have been brought into the Citadel fold. I picked up two (Grey Knight Steel and Iron Warriors) and gave them a shot.

Under the Brush: Heirs of Gondolin

Battle Companies 2.0 for the Middle-earth Strategy Game has been out for several weeks now and I’ve already tested it out with my buddy over a couple of games. Since then, in a preparation for a map-based game with a local group, I’ve painted up my starter battle company. I’ll be playing Rivendell, as that’s my main army so far. I present to you, the Heirs of Gondolin! Continue reading
