BCB: Boise!

Well, I have been horribly remiss in my duties as editor on this blog. I haven’t posted pics of the army, I haven’t posted the results from Breast Cancer Brawl: Boise.

I’m not ashamed to say the event was a huge success. We had 36 players on the sign-up sheet and 34 folks came down and played. I had two players drop — one to help me run the tourney, and another because he couldn’t stay for the whole day.

Check out the photos here if you haven’t already seen them on Facebook.

As for the pink armies, I have fantastic news.

  • Rio’s Wolves, painted by Lloyd Daugherty, sold to Chris Dunn for $250
  • Cygnus of Awareness, painted by James Kater,  sold to Lloyd Daughtery for $550
  • Khador for the Cure, painted by Jen Ikuta, sold to Chris Cantlon for $600

We also had a number of single models and units. I’m a slacker and didn’t get pics of all of them.

  • Sam & the Devildogs, painted by Ed Norris, sold to Chris Cantlon for $75
  • Calandra Truthsayer, painted by Scott Kidwell, sold to Bruce DeLaney for$50
  • Eiryss, painted by Jody Gorton, sold to Mike Lange for $40
  • Anastasia diBray, painted by Jody Gorton, sold to Dick Link for $20
  • Ashlynn d’Elyse, painted by Jody Gorton, sold to Dick Link for $20

In total, the event raised $4,300 for the St. Luke’s Mobile Mammography Coach. We’ll be presenting the donation in a week or two when both All About Games owners are in town.

Huge thanks to everyone who participated as a player and/or painter. Next year will be even bigger!

Cygnus of Awareness, update, no pics

Sorry no pics, but I have the arcane tempest gun mages, their ua, the piper and reinholdt done,  I have metals done and the bases done on the hunter, thorn, the defender, and centurion.  Still have a few days to go, pics will come just not for a few days.  i have set laddermore and reg caine as an aside since they were the last two members of the fold that are difficult to work on, the defender was indeed last, but he is easy.

More of the Truth(sayer)…

OK, Calandra Truthsayer is done (with 2 days to spare), just needing a seal coat.

I am pretty happy with how she turned out, and may end up having to bid on her to keep her in my army.

She was a lot of fun to paint, I may end up painting an army for next year’s BCB, but I know me pretty well, I will need to start around January, if not sooner.

I am headed down to the FLGS and will get better pictures, these are right off the desk. So very ghetto….

Calandra- You can’t handle the Truth(sayer)!

OK, really. Things shouldn’t take his long, and I should have had Calandra Truthsayer done months ago. She got to “season” for a little bit, and she still is not finished. Just a few small details to go, and she will be done in time for Saturday’s Breast Cancer Brawl: Boise.

I will post finished pictures when she is done. Also, I needed something to paint alongside Calandra, so I got the Kriel Warrior Caber Thrower done, though he is not part of the Paint Pink project and will go into my own Trollblood army.

Thanks for checking in-

Working on it

Our breast cancer brawl is happening in 6 days and I am feverishly trying to find time to get 15 models painted for the auction, I still need to crank out 6 gun mages, the dude, laddermore mounted, laddermore unmounted, piper of ord, reinholdt, Defender, Hunter, Centurion, and Thorn.  work and home life has kept me away from these guys for too long, although the home life stuff, while I won’t bore you with details, was extremely important.  Now I see myself behind the gun barrel with a lot of expectations from myself to get this done.  Thankfully I have to put mini-dicewwraith in day care on Wednesday and Friday even though I have to work very little, but for the amount  ipay per day, I refuse to let the young one stay for only 2 hours each day, and I will have a lot of time alone those two days.  I want to finish basing and metal work on all models before Wednesday.  I will hopefully regail everyone with pics late Friday night, or Sunday after the tournament.

Gday: The Bear Necessities

Troll Warbeasts are some of the most awesome destructive forces in the game… but they can’t roam too far, they need to be constantly monitored by a warlock. So, what do you do when you want an awesomely destructive flanking force? You call in this guy…

Brun Cragback

Brun Cragback

Out of respect for his current employers, Brun sports a lovely pink hat brooch thingie, despite wearing the red/bone colour scheme I settled on when I painted Thor, Loki and Ingrid.

And of course, what good’s a minion warlock without a towering hirsute monstrosity?

Lug

Lug

He may not be wearing pink, but then he’s not strictly a Ta-Ta… and dammit, I like the red on him.

I may not be able to attend my local FLGS’ Breast Cancer Brawl in the end, but Brun and Lug will definitely be accompanying the Ta-Ta Kriel with me to Templecon!

Gday: And the sky is a hazy shade

The self-inflicted challenge, when working with yellow skinned trolls, is how to successfully pull off those models that are supposed to be even paler. Prime examples are the albino trollkin warlocks, but there’s also this fellow to consider…
