Werepuppies

I made some good progress on the Knights, just haven't taken any new pics yet. Here's what I've been working on the past few weeks on lunch breaks. First up is my second unit of Skorza skirmishers. I didn't like the looks of the spear hafts that came with them, so I went with some brass rod instead.



And here's Duke Anton and Korrad all built up.



Next my stock specialists: Shield Breaker and Scourge Hound.



I didn't like that the specialist didn't have alt sculpts, so I converted my own. I took the top of a Shield Breaker and put it on a spare skirmisher body, swapped out the bottom of the legs and added some thigh grieves.




Finally, I made an alt scourge hound with the female skirmisher, swapping out her weapons, adding the hood and some various armor plates.




Everything needs putty work, I'm hoping to get to that this week after I get my mercs, Lord Hob and Irene put together.

Adepticon 2015

Here are some shots from games this past Adepticon.


This year's Epic tournament. We had two drop out, unfortunately, and were even (unfortunately for me). My knights did get in one game though when Eric sat out so I could play. We had a Space Marine, Imperial Guard, Ork, Eldar, Speed Freek and Imperial Fist army. Between six people I also think we had over $400 in prize support. :P A big thank you to Dark Realm Miniatures, Microworld Games, Onslaught Miniatures and Steel Crown Games!




Three games of Warmaster this year. My elves took on Chaos, Dark Elves and Orcs.




A huge game of Space Hulk played on a Creative Gamescape setup. Four marine players had to find an Inquisitor and get him off planet in twenty turns. Probably the closest game I ever played (see the last couple of captions) which made for a very cinematic game.




This was a 4v4 shoot 'em up. Cavalry, marshals, temperance league and mountain men vs banditos, outlaws, indians and another outlaw. I managed to get my outlaw buddy out of jail, but then we were all shot to pieces. FYI, don't listen to a TO is he says you can place the dynamite and then run away. You only get to do the first part...




This year's Necromunda tournament. There were three Orlocks, two Cawdor and an Escher gang in the morning session. Of the players I knew two and played three before. For my four games I played all three of them... It was good fun though, but no epic moments I remember.

King Me!

I did a lot of checkers this week... A lot. Beyond that, nothing much. I've got a few my knight nights before Adepticon though so I think I'll be good. I'm hoping to work on the metal today and do touch-up and bases next week.



I don't think I'll get to the full basing I intended. I'll likely just start with the flock and save the other stuff for later.



Aircraft and objectives are also a big maybe too. At this point I'm betting it would be one or the other. Likely the aircraft if I had to guess.






I also picked up the Wrath of Kings Kickstarter, these have been what I've been cleaning up at lunch. Nice models. I was a little leery of the PVC but the detail is decent enough I think, I did sharpen the weapons quite a bit though. There's some gaps I'll need to putty, but I'm going to try and get everything glued together first.

Still on Track

Work continues. I might have overdone the last highlight on these. We'll see how they look after touchup.



It was a pretty productive week, I finished the yellow, blue, eyes and most of the decals. At this point there's a few decals to go (custom cut ones for the Errant and Castellans), the check pattern, touch-up (especially around the eyes) and base detail to go.



After that, I want to finish up six Thunderbolts for Adepticon. I haven't given much more thought to objectives yet either, not sure if I'll get them done.
