RT Guard Platoon Finished - 2011 wrap-up

2011, IS OVER!

Just finished up the last 5 groups for my platoon of RT guardsmen, which leads me into the wrap up.

All in all, an excellently productive year. My local gaming group, this past year we kept a google doc tracking our progress with painting and assembly. It's a pretty cool thing to see and its great for motivation.

What's the tally?

736 models assembled.

221 models painted.

Let's see what I can do in 2012.

I'm seeking an Armorcast Vindicator Conversion Kit

Looks like the below, is very OOP.

If you have one and would care to sell it to me, I'd be a very happy guy.

So, took today and finished up all the dwarf that got dipped earlier this year, only 96 of them.

Added a simple highlight on the blue and skin and based them. Just need to do movement trays.

My Dread Mob is about 95% ready for this weekend's tournament up in Standish Maine.

Just a few highlights and we should be good to go.

Dread Mob // New additions

Finished up my Meka Dread, a CCW Dread and 3 kans today, along with the display board they're sitting on in this picture.

The tournament I'm going to is 2 weeks away and next weekend is a wash, so this stuff needs to get finished.

But I think we're in good shape.

Dwarf Army in a Weekend-ish // Update 16

Well, many weekends later, I found some time to work on these guys.

Quick highlights of skin, blue and on the slayers orange, bring these guys beyond a simple dip job.

Basing and done.

I'm fairly pleased with them, sure I could do better, but, they're painted and don't look half bad.

Grot Tanks - 3

Just finished these guys up, adding weathering powders and painting the grot kommanda. Just have to add a coat of matte sealer.

Rogue Trader Imperial Guard Platoon - 2

Before the Grot Tanks took center stage, I did get some work done on these guys, getting their boots basecoated and a wash over them.

Next will be highlighting the fatigues and working up the armour and skin.

Grot Tanks - 2

More work, more washes, details, rust, and whatnot. Trying to add more depth and keep it looking right.

Almost there.

Grot Tanks

With an upcoming tournament, it's time to ready the Dread Mob. First up are these lovely Forgeworld Grot tanks. These were salt weathered like the Stompa and Kill Krusha and then with layers of paint and a few extra colors they're almost there. A few weathering powders and the kommanda painted and this unit will be ready to go. Not bad for a nights work.

Tournament Report

The club I'm a apart of, Dorkamorka held a 20 man tournament yesterday, in conjunction with a Painting Competition, called the "Golden Squig". 18 of the 20 tournament entrants also entered the painting competition, so we had a great turn out for both.

Teaser image of some of the action below, and I'll be adding images from the tourney and painting comp over the next few days.

Rogue Trader Imperial Guard Platoon

Just started these guys.

I'm going for a tradition scheme, grey fatigues, black armour, silver guns, with colored squad markings.

More Leman Russ

Two more Russ chassis, an Exterminator and a Vanquisher.

I used a plastic heavy bolter on the Exterminator as the pewter one in the kit I had was a bit rubbish.

Imperial Guard Tank Destroyer

My lovely girlfriend bought me this kit for my birthday and i finally got round to assembling it.

I've always loved it, so nice for me to finally have one.

Fall 40K League

I'm running our clubs league this fall. I'm trying to steer a way from having the entrants play 6 random games and then a final and yay prizes.

I've devised a narrative campaign with linked games. The outcome of each game affects the next battle in some way.

Check out the rules/missions packet and let me know what you think.

Stomy Stompa

Same deal as the other too, just nice to put paint on these big guys that I like.

Forge World Kill Bursta - with Paint!

I'm on a huge painting kick today, painted this up with the Battlefortress.

Same basic color scheme, same salt weathering.

Forge World Battle Fortress - Now with paint!

Finally got around to getting some paint on my APOC stuff.

Tried out the salt weathering technique and I'm really happy with it. What you're seeing is freshly washed, so nothing but a rusty base and a color of=ver the top.

Necromunda - assembly

I got 47 gangers and related Necromunda figs assembled today. Goliaths, Delaques, Cawdor, Orlocks, Bounty Hunters, Scum, Spryers and Van Saars. Models for all of those gangs. And a couple Ripper Jacks and a Beastmaster too.

Prize of the bunch is an unreleased Hive Helmawr Ganger. Pic courtesy of solegends.

Original Death Guard - How to.

Because someone mentioned the classic Eavy metal scheme....

I'll be doing variations of this theme for all my squads.

Finished Death Guard

Finished this guy up and even added a little free hand to an otherwise blank shoulder pad.

Saturday, July 16, 2011

Death Guard Marine

First one of these I've worked on since that test model. I stumbled on the green I'm using whilst painting the chainsaw warriors, and think it works nicely here. Just need to get the metals done and highlight the black areas and red again.

Thousand Sons Assembled

As a nice change from dwarfs, got these guys assembled.

Dwarf Army in a Weekend // Update 15

So, I got these guys done yesterday, sorry for no WIPs.

Had a friend shoot some video of me working, which I'll hopefully get to post here soon.
