Did some work on the Shadow War: Armageddon Grey Knights kill team I’m taking for Tim’s February wargaming weekend. Even though they only need 3-5 figs for a team, I’m painting up enough to be able to WYSIWYG for upgrades and such…
Used my new compressor for the first time. Lovely.
As an aside, this was also the first time I used the Citadel Air line of airbrush paints. Impressed so far.
A war party has gained followers in Letharac and has set out into the Ardovikian Plain with a sizeable force. Perhaps this is the start of a new kingdom, but for now a good nights sleep after a long march is in order. Having found a suitable place to set up camp for the night, the party sets in for a solid nights rest. Sadly, the rest tonight is interrupted as the alarm is raised when the moon is still high overhead, something is moving through the treeline and will be upon you shortly!
I was defending the building in the middle of the table… Chris was attacking from two opposite sides.
The goal was to reduce the opposing player’s side to 50% of their force…
Not a lot of figure painting going on lately (surprise, surprise!), but I have been working on a few hobby related bits and pieces…
Dave G., Kevin H., and I had a small Ronin game to learn (or in my case, relearn) the rules. It was useful, and I’m looking forward to playing a larger scale version for realz, now that we have a better idea of the mechanic. I think Dave and Kev enjoyed it, too, and hopefully there’ll be a bit of a samurai buzz.
Started painting the sci-fi/modern layout I put together last year. This will eventually form part of a Judge Dredd “Block”, but is designed to work with any sci-fi/modern game.
Picked up a 1/50 scale die-cast Land Rover Defender on eBay from a guy in Portugal. It was specced out for a fire department (bright red, blue lights on the roof, etc.), but I’m converting it to use as a UNIT vehicle for an eventual Dr. Who themed game.
…and the fulfilled temptation:
Dave G. spotted a really bargain priced WHFB Empire army on Kijiji locally and picked it up. Then he beat me up and made me buy it from him. 🙂
