If you’ve been following my blog then you know I’ve been working on figuring out a style with my Marines that works for me. I can’t say with 100% certainty that I’ve found it but I feel I’m on the path at least. With my Orks I play pretty much…Read More
With ‘ard Boyz being next month everyone at the shop is getting ready for it, well except for a few of us. So, I’ve been showing up with 2,500 point lists to play against those who are going to enter. Last night I got to play Brian, an Ultramarine player,…Read More
The last shot wasn’t 100% complete and Joe liked what he saw but wanted a few things done. I’ve done that, highlighted the bolter now (except what will be metallic), did a simple highlight on the right shoulder and highlighted under the eye lenses. Here’s the finished product.
Progress has been a bit lower than I’d like but progress is progress. The first unit always takes longer since I’m working out the technique I plan to use for the entire army and refining my approach. That being said, the 10-man Veteran Squad is now complete. I should have…Read More
My wife does Pampered Chef on the side and she wanted me to pass this along. Help me make my wish come true…and your April order could be magical for YOU, too! WOW…Pampered Chef is going to grant one lucky Consultant an overnight stay at Cinderella’s Castle! I’m ONLY $350…Read More
Last night I got in two games using my Marines. Both games were against fellow Marines and both games were losses. My record is far from great with my Marines. I love the fluff, I enjoy the modeling and I like the models themselves but I just can’t seem to…Read More
Here’s the test model I was working on. Joe wanted mostly black with some gold trim. The bolter isn’t done yet though and I have a purity seal to put over the hole in the backpack but otherwise it’s “finished”. Joe is having me just do the black and gold…Read More
I managed to get the last 10 Tact Marines assembled this weekend, 2 Rhinos base coated, 5 Command Squad base coated and 10 Veterans base coated with one test model just about complete. Now that I’m on to painting I think things are going to start flying along.
Played at the FLGS last night and ran into a situation which I fell victim to and no doubt others out there do to. I do this more often than I should so this is just as much making you all aware as reprimanding myself for it (bad Thor!). The…Read More
After a long, long (did I say long?), time of putting together a chapter worth of Marines we’re just about ready to start putting a brush to the models. This weekend I’ll get a test model done and track down the beast that seemed to have hidden my camera on…Read More
The previous theme was very clean looking, professional and nicely done but it was a pain in my ass. I put a ton of work into revising it so I was happy with it and even then I had some issues still. Most of those issues got resolved in a…Read More
Battle Missions has been out for a little while now and I’ve finally gotten a handful of games under my belt with it and I have to say I really, really like what they’ve done. First off, having more than three missions to choose from is damn nice. The book…Read More
