This is NOT my Thyra Model.

Although I don’t have much to show yet, I’ve committed to posting each week on here. It will keep me moving.

So there I was complaining on Twitter about how incredibly detailed my Thyra model was and what a challenge it will be to paint it when Bobaferret replies and tells me that hers is finished already! 

 See her post on Losthemisphere here http://losthemisphere.com/blog/?p=14388 

I love the simplicity of her scheme and hope my warcaster turns out looking this good!

My army is looking significantly still…..well white right now. I claim victory in the fact that they are now at least partly assembled as last week they were still in their boxes. 

My goal is to post a photo of a completed model by next week. I’ve started the base coat on the dervish and feel confident he’ll  she’ll be camera ready by this time next week. Right then- back to the painting table for me!

A Long Overdue Update – More Pink Trolls!

Well, after what looks like a year off from Hordes (I blame Cryx WM Mark II) and a slight distraction in real life my Trolls are back!

First thou, some news. My Mother In Law at the start of Feb was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. 😦 Big shock and that was not the phone call that me or my wife ever wanted to take. Life takes a different route after news like this.

Good news is the operation and subsequent treatment (radiotherapy) is  now over and she is making a good recovery (and now rocks some awesome bandanna choices). It’s been hard supporting her and the family but out of all of us, she has been the strongest one!

Needless to say this time, alongside the release of Hordes Mk II and the incoming new Trollblood book has renewed my love of the big pink ones.

So I cracked out the camera to produce some sub standard finished pics of what I have been up to the past few weeks off and show the Pink Kriel off fully!

In hindsight I should have made a group shot but I don’t think my camera could cope with that much pink…..

Without further ado we have the Pink Kriel so far….

My pride of the collection so far and the most fun I have had painting a miniature!

And his smaller brother (or sister, it’s hard to tell….)

Impalers, and an Axer the basis of any good Troll collection

Grim on the hunt for, err, chicken?

Ahh, and to think he is going to bring all that doom.

Perhaps the most common solo seen in Troll armies?

Quite possibly the cutest PP minis ever?

The cornerstone of many bricks

Magic digging Pygmies? What could be better?

Smoke blowing gobbers, showing their support for the cause!

Hope you enjoy my hard work, I have some Champs, a Pyre Troll and a Stone Scribe Chronicler on my painting table to finish of and then some casters and maybe another beast or two before I start on the slog that is the Kriel Warriors. All that tartan is beginning to scare me….

On a final rather personal note I do have a Calandra who will be painted up in honour of my Mother In Laws success. Any suggestions on how to sugar coat the fact that I have picked a rather substantial character to represent her will be appreciated!

And it continues

As usual I have a bad pick to share. Its what I’ve been up too, after these are done I have:

6 more Bloodgorgers, 10 Raiders + sea witch, a helldiver, the coven, 2 raider captains, a converted skarlock, 2 plastic jack kits, 2 necrotechs and then all the cryx I own will be painted…

Wow thats still a lot to go. On a brighter note, we had our breast cancer brawl sat July 31 and raised at least $400 dollars, with my work matching this its a nice haul.

2010: Pittsburgh Race For The Cure

Hey All,

For Mother’s Day, I joined my mother again for the Pittsburgh Komen Race For the Cure. Being a gamer I only joined in on the walking half of the 5k run/walk. However I couldn’t show up alone, Pirate Queen Skarre & Master Necrotech Mortenebra also joined in the walk (the ladies posed for pics while Deryliss & skarlock were off getting them swag.) The Seether hopped into the timed run (maybe he’ll make it into jack about town).

There were lots of people there, it was cold and windy but another fine event. I wanted to get pics with a big sign of the event (there sort of a sign in the background), we found one later…right in front of the speaks and I was deaf from being with 40 ft of them, I didn’t want to get close enough for my ears to bleed.

Section 1 Done

So I’m doing a series of slow grow leagues to help my community get a tourny force fully painted. My the first step was 15 pts. So here’s my cryx. (excuse the pics, I’ll have to take a few at the shop next chance I get)

However, I painted full units; didn’t see the point in only painting half

Thinking Pink: 2010 version

Well, it’s March already, which means we’re just about to the 1-year anniversary for this blog. It’s been pretty quiet on this front, but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped thinking about painting pink armies and what to do for this year’s Breast Cancer Brawl events.

I’ve decided on painting a Protectorate of Menoth force for BCB: Boise and have worked out a decent list for the Order of the Pink Menofix. Just need to get the models. Dicewraith is scheming something, and Gdaybloke has the Ta-Ta Kriel to unleash upon the masses.

In other news, y’all should follow this link and support Devilsquid for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure.

BCB: Boise will be back in October with a vengeance. Brotherscott is a PG now and we’ve got a host of PGs from Utah who should be making the trip. We’ll also be working toward getting some folks from Privateer Press down for the event. We’ve also got some ideas for prize support and how to make this year’s event even bigger and better than the last. 🙂

Done, for now

Ok all, I finished up my 500 pt force. I want to thank everyone for the comments, sorry about the pics. Hopefully when I got to the store I can get some better shots. I got some other stuff to work on before I add more to the cryx, but I’ll post my extras. Without further a due:

I like how they ended up, and it helped raise $67 or so dollars to go toward my Breast Cancer Brawl donation event. I had a lot of fun doing this, I think next year I’ll do up an army and auction it off to add to the donation…maybe retribution.

I hope to make it up to Templecon next year, maybe we should have a pink army throw down or something (maybe tour of duty style).

Cryx update, with pics

So I got my other deathripper done except basing. The others are in different stages of doneness. Some just need a wash while others are just started (and the helldriver just popped in for a pic). I’m thinking of trying a swamp basing but haven’t really decided. I wanted to get some pics up showing what progress I’ve made. I think its really coming along. While starring at the two different deathrippers the one with more purple is starting to grow on me more. I might paint my duplicate jacks in the different colors to distinguish them apart but basically keep the scheme the same.

Cryx update

I’ll have pics soon, I’ve finished my second deathripper (with the sanquine underbase) its my first offical item on my list. I’ve got a slayer, stalker, neco tech, scrap thralls, dyrills and Morty primered. I picked up my second slayer and my withcrshadow today so thats the models I need for my list. I’m looking good to have my army done for my event (Sept 19).

I want to give a thanks to IMI on the privateer boards, I got a good bit of extras for my cryx in a trade. I know he still has some stuff if anyone else is interested.

Scheme check and update

So looking through my paint I saw my Saquine Base and thought it might work better as the base instead of warlock purple. So I gave it a try. I kind of up in the air about it so I thought I’d post for reactions. Left is new, Right is original.

I’m moving along on the models. I’ve pick up the necotech and stalker…and let me say the stalker has got to be the most awkward jack to put together. I had to make a special base for it. My withershadow combine and slayer will be coming in my pg order next month. So I should be moving right along on this.

Thanks for any comments.
