Ork fighter bomber inbound!

So I’ve had this Ork bomber since they released it several years ago, built and then primed it gray then painted it bad-moons yellow then just played with it with just the base coat on, kind of boring I know but I had already bought a new GW kit and was now focused on that… as you do! πŸ˜‰ … then when 8Th Ed came out I was exited to spruce up my Orks a bit like mounting my Nobs on 32mm bases and unifying the paint jobs of my Orks as they are a mix of Bad moon an Death Skullz ! So I hand painted the bomber in Abaddon Black then go over it with a big dry brush with Leadbelcher. Then went at the details with troll slayer orange.

Then I used a base of Caledor Sky to mark out the flames on the bomber,

Once all the flames were down and I was happy with the shapes they made I did a second coat of Caledor Sky then when that was dry I cleansed up the edges of the flames with Fenrisian Gray! This is where it has sat for a while I still want to hit it with some browns in places to tone down some of the orange then add exhaust port carbon scoring and even some oil drip which I plan to use the Vallejo engine weathering effects “petrol spills”, that I bought.

I still have a lot to do! I figure if I post an in progress post I’ll be more apt to finish it soon so I can post the final results!

Well I’m off now to paint something now I’m feeling

a bit productive today!

Got some AoS Orks green skins and Chaos warriors that need paint on them! πŸ˜€

Wtf have I been up to!

Well I have been away from the world for a spell, to get back in to the swing of things! Here is some interesting things I saw on my trip to Sweden and Finland! I went for

Worldcon 2017 in Helsinki.

(And yes I am cosplaying Finland from The web comic “Scandinavia and the World”!)

Found this game store in the dealers room selling GW and custom Warhammer game supplies, this fabulous custom Warlord Traitor Titan of an unknown legion was very impressive. They also were selling some painted Forge World Ork war machines.

I would have loved to buy this ork battle wagon, but the transporting it home presented a problem so I passed on it. I do really love the design of this battle Wagon it’s my favorite!

Part of my trip I was in Sweden,

and I had a some spare time so I went to the Stockholm GW store and they had this really well executed Shadow War terrain layout! What I particularly liked about it was that

They sawed its upright struts in half to make a descending Walkway

I wish I had taken a photo from the back but the walkway does go all the way to the ground. I may do something similar with my SW terrain! πŸ˜€

I made a travel Warhammer 40K magnetic paper hammer board out of a small magnetic dry erase board. And some printed epic scale Space Marines from a paper hammer game site! I did this because I was traveling for a month and my trip started a few weeks after 8th dropped and I was not going to go that long without a way too play 8th ed (which I love by the way GW finally fixed 40k it’s fun again!!! πŸ˜€

I just brought the index

Imperium 1 book,

the compact rules printed copy of 8th you get when you preorder the game , My phone had a dice rolling app and I had a pencil and a note book and I was all set I did a little covering of inches to hexes for moving and shooting and Wallah a travel 40k game! Oh and to make it easier to move the units the army’s were printed on 100bl lazer card stock then mounted to sticky back fridge magnets. πŸ™‚

And I used the epic 40k 2nd ed objective markets for terrain and objectives! The main reason I made this tiny hammer 40k was the 10 hour plane flight to Sweden and then 10 hrs on the way back home, and any down time I had on the trip. The board is the same dimensions as the pull down tray so it sat perfectly in front of me, in my plane set and it fit perfectly in my back pack

In the space designed for you laptop computer. All in all I had a good trip and did some gaming and a fare amount of drinking in both Sweden and Finland!

Well on That note Cheers all and as the Canadians say “Keep your stick on the Ice”! Till next time!

Yeah got my first Shadow War game in finally!

So I got talked into joining my local game stores Shadow War campaign! They lured me in with SW tokens quick reference cards and a wristband, they didn’t exactly have to twist my arm much πŸ˜‰ so I placed them in my old Armageddon ordinance tin for effect! 

So finally got to play a game after much waiting on my preorder book only to have life keep me preoccupied once I got the book! But I didn’t get to sit down and fully read the book until Tuesday night I got it Saturday morning it was painful, like an itch you can’t scratch! ;D but that’s past now and I have built a SM Scout army with Howling Griffins I’m using the Rogue Trader Compendium alternate paint job  with camo and spots for my unit! It’s something I have been wanting to do for 26 years now, why has it taken this long πŸ˜‰ 

For the Game itself, I was quite happy with the return to 2Ed with a twist! I am very happy that I can take Clip harnesses so my scout snipers don’t fall off high spots and instead just get pinned down where they are! For my first game me and a mate  just went for fun we each took a heavy weapon just to try out overwatch to see if it was still a fun rule or if it got effected by the new rule, happy to say we both found it still a fun aspect of SW (Necromunda 2) πŸ˜‰ as I keep calling cus that’s what it is! Well Auto Cannons are still very  lethal in overwatch I must say I got a scout taken out of action 4th turn to foolishly walking to close to his Chaos gunner with a auto cannon perched up high!
 

The one thing I liked a lot was not having to write down things every turn and have to keep track of who shot Who for exp! 

I have a lot of terrain I’m working now it’s been keeping me very busy! Even to the point were my kill team is getting neglected for painting! Here is some of what I painted since Monday 


Well that’s it for this post I have swapped all other games to the shelves for now because I have been waiting 15 years for Necromunda 2 and damn it I’m going to play it till I’m mostly sick of it haha that problem won’t happen;) but I can try!  I apologize in advance I will be mostly posting about Shadow War for the next few months or at least until the campaign ends πŸ˜‰ Ttfn and happy gaming all!

Cheers

Malifaux tournamentΒ 

So I finally got to play in a Malifaux tournament! It was a lot of fun despite getting my ars handed to me! ;P I think I placed second to last which was a bid of a disappointment considering there was a prize for last place! the only reason I didn’t come in last place, was my team was painted ! Image that! πŸ™‚ here is my team lead by Tara!

Herald of Obliteration plus Hans and Killjoy’s proxy The Carver!


So my worst luck was first game, Turn two Killjoy pops up from buried and is one shot by Seamus with a red joker. I was a bit sad as I had bought him the night before the tournament built and painted him and he is One shot-ed to death πŸ˜› oh well two more games too do better! 

Killjoy/ the Carver insta-killed turn 2 😦


On my last game had a bit of an F-up Carver got to close to his master and wrecked Tara. Almost killed her but I managed to disengage The Carver from her to spare them both!


Also this board is my terrain I lent the Henchmen running the tournament! .



Also Hans was the MVP of the second game he got first blood did Severe damage to a croolagen first turn on a positive flip of double 13’s!

Well I can’t think of anything else but I hope to post more of my Malifaux terrain ideas this month! Before I get back heavily into Frostgrave! I have to finish both my warbands and the city tiles this month before our tournament starts up at the end of the month. πŸ™‚ TTFN

Malifaux Outcast teamΒ 

They are coming together nicely!

Outcast

So I wanted to show off how the bases are coming out, there not 100% done yet they still need some swamp weeds, like clumps of static grass poking out of the boards and edges of the bases to finish the look I’m going for. I do like how the deck boards look Better when I carve them in the PVC foam board than when I have used balsa wood in the past .  
My first box set is nearly fished ” Herald if Obliteration” with Nothing Beast , Tara, Karina, And the Void Wretches! I like they way they’ve turning out! Oh and the 3 models on the left hand side of the first photo are the new Wild West Exodus minis that finally cleared Kickstarter and are now in game stores! The models are very nice I gave some cowgirls swords so I could have some outlaw ronin to match my old west them I was going for.

Karina, Vanessa, Tara

A closer look at Big Jake! So when I first saw him in the store I thought he would make a great               Baron Samedi so I painted him to look like the keeper in the realm of the dead , plus I think painting skulls on 28mm models faces is a fun challenge! πŸ™‚ 

Baron Samedi

So I’m still kind of new to Malifaux and I really like the fate deck flipping mechanic it feels right for a game that’s set in place were gambling and debauchery are common place in the backwaters of Malifaux. Any way I’ll leave you with some photos of how my game terrain is coming out! I’ll do a terrain post when I have more to show! Thx
