December Demon commission complete




Finished up with my December commission today and presented the models to the owner. He was ecstatic and very pleased with the final product. So much that he wants me to paint the rest of his demon army and a new beast men army he's working on building now.

Painting Class, Commissions, Cold

I hosted my first painting class on Friday. It was a success I feel.  4 of the 5 were new painters and they all learned something different. I myself learned a lot about teaching painting techniques to new guys. Next time I have a few ideas I may implement.

SlaughterBrute Complete

Painted this guy today for a piece of a big group of demon commissions I'm working on. I'll have some high res photos of it later when I more models finished. For now the pics from my iPhone will have to do.

They got me!!!


Saw a group of guys huddled around some strange yet very interesting terrain the other night playing a very different kind of game. Long story short... I'm now playing Infinity. Lmao. Great models, great rules, great terrain. What's not to like?

Also, I finally did some painting today. Should have an update tomorrow or the next day.

Dabbling in other games.

Played a 35pt game of Warmahordes last night.  Tried some things out and had a blast. My buddy Adam is a PressGanger and was a big help with my army.

Dauntless 320 Ready for War


"A MAN MAY DIE YET STILL ENDURE IF HIS WORK ENTERS THE GREATER WORK. TIME IS CARRIED
UPON A CURRENT INCEPTED BY FORGOTTEN DEEDS. EVENTS OF GREAT MOMENT ARE BUT THE
CULMINATION OF A SINGLE CAREFULLY PLACED THOUGHT. AS ALL MEN MUST
THANK PROGENITORS OBSCURED BY THE PAST, SO WE MUST ENDURE THE
PRESENT THAT THOSE WHO COME AFTER MAY CONTINUE GREATER WORK."
-THE CHIME OF EONS - GARBA MOJARO PREFECTUS OF ADEPTUS MECHANICUS

HIGH RES PHOTOS TODAY!!!!
MORE AFTER THE JUMP!!!

I read that quote, which is the script hanging between the Paladin's legs, when I was taking the pictures of the model today. It was hard to make out but really compliments my personification of this model and the idea behind why he is included into my Astra Militarum Army.

Knight Paladin: Dauntless 320

He's finally coming together and man is he looking ready to fight! I've struggled staying focused and finishing this model but sometimes you just have to ask yourself, "what would Yarrick do?" He'd push on and kick some Ork ass! More pics after the jump!

Hobby Update: More Terrain!



Well work has kept me busy. Real busy. 

Even so I did some substantial terrain work throughout the week. I've been sitting on a bunch of left over terrain from my landing port table so I decided to throw together a bit of city terrain. I learned that I am in fact not very good at building vertical buildings. Oh well it is masked by the fact that the city has been shelled a bit. Also check out my fuel and ammo depot and downed Valkyrie objective markers. Those were fun to build and they turned out really cool. I'll probably be giving these a paint job this weekend. 

I turned this: 

Into this:


Small cathedral


Downed Valkyrie


City Rubble

"The Podium" A public speaking tower

Another shot of the cathedral

Hobby update: Orks!

Stompa Inbound!!!
"Dats right umies it's time fo a krumpin!"

So no Throwback Thursday this week. Luckily I'm working on updating some models I painted prior and will post pics tomorrow. So you're kind of getting the best of both worlds. Ha. 

Anyways I got on an Ork kick this weekend in light of all of the rumors and pics dropping across the web. So I started painting my Stompa! I can't believe how easy and fun this thing is to paint and it's coming along very quickly. I should be able to finish up tomorrow and as such will have a plethora of pics.

Hobby Update: Gettin Some Head.... Painting Done

I did a little clean up work today on a few models. I spent most of the day getting ready for my trip to D.C. tomorrow but I managed to squeeze in some hobby time. 

I re-drilled the hole in which the antennae for the command camera was stuck in. It kept breaking off which was really pissin me off this weekend so I fixed it. Got in their nice and deep like, so it won't be budging anytime soon. 

I also prepped my Wyvern and the Command Chimera for their upcoming paint jobs by applying a second base coat and making sure there was no grey still visible on the model.  I'll probably start on these two later this week. 

And finally I revisited to new heads I modeled on my vets a few weeks ago. They are heads from the Scions box with some beards added. I I wanted berets spread throughout my AM army signifying that although they're from all different units and worlds and have different uniforms, they have the commonality of the tan beret. Maybe it's something they took up after banding together to hunt Ghazghkull, or maybe it's in remembrance of all those fallen on Armageddon. And no I didn't chose tan because I want them to look like Rangers. Tan just fit the look of the rest of the army.  


I also updated my Scion with a tan beret.

That's all for now. I'll be in D.C. Monday and Tuesday but should have a Beat Ass Batrep up by the time I get back. It's of the 7th edition games I played this weekend. 

Thanks for reading!
