Not dead yet.

It's but a wild, rough, fun year. Moved house last October and didn't have a hobby space operational until May or so. Been working on that since and getting my hobby mojo back. Age of Sigmar has been a breath of fresh air and inspired me to get moving on some fantasy projects.

Terrain from GW, 6 forests, some walls and a tower, and Tabletop World, windmill, house, and well. And a big block of Skeletons finished in just 2 days.

And playing a bunch of games, more than I have in years.

A few months ago I had a friend laser cut this for me, and since my hobby space is almost operational, it took a little time yesterday to paint this up. There are magnets sunk into each of the holes so that you can move the pegs to their respect turns.

Painted it up with a Rustoleum bronze color and a light coat of Montana Gold... gold. A little dark tone wash and some Nihilax (?) Oxide, and job's a gud un.

30th Anniversary Space Marine Celebration

With this milestone upon us, I offered to display some of my RT marines at my local GW store. With enthusiasm, the manager accepted. It was fun to show him the classic minis and some other rarities that were in the cases I brought.

Here's what in the case.

Secret Weapon Tablescapes

I backed the kickstarter way-back-when and receive 3 themes for a total of two 4x6 foot tables. The tiles themselves are great, the clip together really nicely and are a joy to paint. And dice don't even bounce all over the place on them... I pulled some from each and got to work painting them up. I based them with a flat dark brown spray, then drybrushed them with Calthan brown (custom mixed gallon), a medium brown and lighter brown and then an ivory (hooray craft paint). I painted all the details and got the scrap piles nice and rusty, before everything got a nice ivory drybrush to make it look all dusty to blend it into the terrain. before flock, I painted on a solid coat of an acrylic varnish followed by Army Painter matte sealer. Indestructible. I had a tile fall on other tiles from 3 feet up and there wasn't even a hint of damage. So these should withstand years of gaming without need for touchups. After that, I added 5 layer of fine turf flock and 2 more on top of that of a coarser flock. PICTURES!

Khorne Lord on Juggernaut

Just finished this guy up, fun to get another piece painted up, and now my evil lads have someone to lead them.
