Well I am off on the annual migration from now, so the blog is doing its Summer hibernation.

So see you all on the other side as we push for WAAC!!!

Infamy

It just keeps going and going doesnt it :O you can check it out here.

Paint/hobby Corner

More 10T painting, with Mei Feng Crew nearly done.

Speaking of Mei managed to get a game with her at 40SS this week. I have to say both the Rail Golem and Fuhatsu are becoming favourites of mine.

Fuhatsu makes a great bodyguard target but his shooting is very very strong! While the golem just smashes faces it is great fun :).

Been a huge week this week. I have officially left the Warhammer community. I have got rid of my WoC and with that I am stepping away from Fantasy. As much as I enjoyed painting them, never had time for a game of note beyond 1000pts. So a sad day but it’s not like I don’t have enough to do :D

Malifaux

So due to a very nice man who is giving me a lift :) I will be going to my first Malifaux tournament next weekend. Which is exciting, the only problem now is I need to pull myself out of 10T love and go back to the gremlins. OK will only be using Somer and Ophelia but they give me some nice settled range of things I can go with. Spam boys or shot faces off :)

Paint/hobby Corner

Yan Lo is complete :) so I am going to be looking at the rail crew next and I am having fun making some industrial bases for them :)

I have also now acquires some Minotaurs (space marines) so I look forward to doing something with those :)

Its all very very quite, too quite.

I have nothing of note to talk about this week :S I can only assume as we move towards GenCon that the shift is starting to happen in that we get no new shiny things BUT lots of spoilers for GenCon releases…

In other news Luchador the card game was successful on KS, so looking forward to that as a Christmas present as it is due December :)

Malifaux

All that changed when Wyrd the buggers dropped the newsletter on Friday grrr…

So to the juicy bits that we havent seen so (mainly alternate sculpts)

Very scary lady, best sculpt for her so far..

Very different and usual, not sure I like the front one, jaw seems a bit off.

I have seen on Twitter they have not been recieved too well, but I like them. Feel like people conscript on the spot to fight all the bad in Malifaux.

Much much better than the old metal ones, I like. Although have noticed Wyrd have moved away from textured fur! A knock on effect of the CAD?

We have all seen poster boy, but the other guy I am not sold on at all :(

Very surprised to see 2 in the box, but I love both of them, here is hoping it is an easy conversion to change arms around :)

Paint/hobby Corner

More Yan Lo painting this week, in fact I am pretty close to being done with the initial crew, the monochrome look has been fun to do and after I settled into a technique was actually pretty quick thing to pull off.

Been having fun with the wet palette as well, not completely convinced it is for me but I am going to continue to use it with the 10T stuff to see how we get on.

Monitor

Continuing my move towards getting my CoC painted here is my Monitor;


Boomhowlers

It has taken me nearly 6 months to build and paint these guys BUT at last they are done!

pStyrker and Caine are very happy about this, as is Murdoch he has had no-one to lead since I finished him :S

I was tempted to do some tartan but in the end I was too lazy!


Beared-itorial

As you can see for the updates WAAC continues to slowly grow and I havent been driven insane yet :) or have I?

Anyway this week has seen more Orks being on show and I continue to be uninterested in the release schedule, still struggling to see why we cant have the book straight away. Well this month is Bears Birthday so trying to see what I fancy and it is going to be a tough one, sensible part of me wants to round out my CoC the magpie in me wants more Malifaux…

eAbsylonia

Oh my isn’t she a beast, loving the grown up nature of her.

Judging by her fluff as well, we will see a warlock her can tailor her beasts during the game :) Looking forward to seeing her on the table..

Although model balance could be interesting with that tail.

Malifaux

Its been a while but I am stumped with Malifaux. Been trying out Misaki and she has not slotted into place like the other masters I have tried. Somer, Ophelia, Yan Lo I am comfortable with (not good just comfortable) while Brewmaster and Ulix I have at least tried and got some bits down.

But Misaki the slippery minx is an enigma to me. Having been so use to masters that need to interact with their crew so much. Having a pretty selfish Master is very odd to me and I feel like I am missing a trick, this is compounded by me over reaching with her against models that she can’t take down quickly.

Need to learn masters are not her target but anything else is (well unless the master has not got a good number of Soulstones). Back to the drawing board with her, although at this stage I am tempted to get out Mei Feng and see how she fits with me and come back to Misaki.

Paint/hobby Corner

Change of pace this week, I have got another friend slowly into Malifaux :) but he wanted Guild :( in particular Peredita :'(

Having picked up a metal version as part of a swap, we came to an agreement which meant I had to paint them as well. Thankfully he is not fussy so managed to knock out the whole crew in 3 evenings which wasnt too bad.

As you can see they are ‘tabletop quality’  despite the bad picture and flock still drying. Fun to paint as I always liked the Guild metals.

But what this means is I now have no excuse this week is the start of the Monochrome Yan Lo crew, I am both dreading and excited by this.. Hopefully I can achieve something I like (wont win awards but that isn’t why I paint).
