Update: Genestealer cult

Just a quick update.  Last time, I was talking about how I wanted to paint up the spine on the aberrant and the head crest on my metamorph. Today I bring you images of the completed model straight from my messy workstation.

I like this look better.  They now feel complete. This will probably be my last post of the year.  I hope you have a great holiday and I will catch you next year.

Questions? Comments? For the four armed emperor?

TGTP2016: Build is finished

With the wife out of town for a couple of days, I had a couple of evenings to myself to watch hockey and build up some terrain. I assembled all my kickstarter bundle from Death Ray Designs.

New Changes to the Blog

I have made a few changes to my blog.  Some of the changes are for my benefit and some are just some updates.  One I am hoping is an improvement for my small community.

The End is Near!

With the year winding down, it is about time to look at my resolution list for this year to see what I have done and what got skipped.  Overall I believe I had a good year with painting 99 infantry models, 7 vehicles, and 5 monsters. Not bad but how much of that was what was promised? Let's break it down.

WIP: Genestealer Cult

Genestealer Cult Aberrant

This weekend I spent some time painting some genestealer cult.  It is getting cold so I can't base coat anything so I decided to paint guys I already based coated.

Showcase: Patriarch

I finally decided to finish off my Patriach.  All I had left was to paint some highlights and paint the skulls on the base.

Shorehammer! A cool con on the ocean!

This weekend was the Shorehammer debut.  It sported a 40k highlander tournament, a Age of Sigmar big battle, and a no holds barred tournament they call The Nut Crusher.  There were a few other games and plenty of open tables.  The atmosphere was light and everyone seemed to be having fun.  I am not sure how successful it was but I think it was a great time.

Death Ray Designs: Rapid Vanguard Terrain

Last post, I said I was almost finished with my Patriach.  This means instead of finishing him, I should start a new project. I am calling it The Great Terrain Project of 2016. Back in March I backed Death Ray Design's Rapid Vanguard Terrain Kickstarter.  Well last week, it came in. I was so excited that I decided to put everything on hold and start assembling.

WIP: Genestealer Cult Patriarch

#Dreadtober: Update a new player has been added

The Dreadtober challenge this week is to create a base for our Dread.  Not only am I goint to try to meet this challenge I also have added an extra "Dread" to the fun. To run the basic detachment in my Genestealer Cult I needed to add a sentinel.  I got lucky and found a Forgeworld sentinel for half price. Lets take a look...

WIP: Metamorph

 Before the game I got to paint up a Genestealer cult metamorph.  I am using the same scheme for his uniform as the neophyte but his skin is pure tyranid.

Genestealer Cult first impressions.

This weekend I had my first two battles with the Genestealer cult.  In today’s post I will give you my reactions and thoughts.

WIP: Neophyte Hybrid

As a hobby butterfly, I have the need to flit between projects.  So, even though I have my Dreadtober project to continue, I was compelled to get some test models done for my genestealer cult.

Friday, October 7, 2016

WIP: Genestealer Cult

If you have been following my blog you would know I am excited by the new genestealer cult that came out this week. Since I am watching my hobby budget, I thought I would start with an Overkill box set.

It is getting close now.  I have purchased my kit and am trying to clear off the workbench to make room for my project.  That project is a Sydonian Dragoon / Ironstrider Balistarius.

Rumor: More Genestealer Cult

 So this weekend we got a few more images to get us drooling over the new genestealer cult. The above picture shows us the two new variants of the new vehicle as well as a Russ tank.  Pretty cool. All of these photos are on many sites but I got them from War of Sigmar.

Nova Army

In my final post about the Nova Open, I will talk about the army I played.  It was not unbeatable, proven by my 1-2 record, but it was cheesy. Lets take a look...

nova games

At the Nova Open I played three games in the Night Fighters Event.  This event spanned three nights and incorporated with the Narrative Warlords and Recon events.  The first two games I played alone against a single opponent.  The third game I was paired up with another team member and we took on a team from the other faction.

Photo Dump

Last year I went to the Nova Open and was very disappointed.  I was expecting something like Adepticon and with my expectations so high I was dissappointed.  I also was trying to play an new game.  I now know that Infinity is not my style and this year I decided to play some 40K because it is what I know.

Showcase: Triarch Praetorian and Destroyer

Last post I talked about the Triarch Praetorian I was working on.  I have wanted to try to try a squad of these guys ever since the Lychguards swords became AP 3.  The are a way to bring AP 2 to the table both through shooting and melee.

Tuesday, September 6, 2016

What's Next??

So the Nova Open is finished.  I am working through the photos and I will have a few posts about the experience.  Before that though I have started to think about what I want to work on to finish out the year.

Down to the wire

With just 2 days left, I am running out of time to finish up my army. I kept working on the ghost ark but I also updated a couple of other models to fit in with my new look.

Done-ish: Canoptek Wraiths

Over the weekend I got to play a few games and finish up painting my wraiths to a level of completeness that will have to do for now. I would love to go back and highlight the carapace but I am almost out of time and I sitll have my ghost ark to paint and a few other items to touch up.

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

WIP Canoptek Wraiths

With my tomb blades complete, I started to work on my wraiths.  They don't have a lot of delicate or hard to reach parts like the tomb blades.  They do have a lot more of the ingrained scroll work. This scroll work will give me the most grief and slow down my progress.

Monday, August 22, 2016

Showcase: Tomb Blades

This weekend I spent some time clearing off my to do list for the Nova Open. I did some work on getting my second ghost ark up and running and I started to work on my Tomb Blades.

Thursday, August 18, 2016

Showcase: Necron Deathmarks

I had some time to work on my Deathmarks the last few days.  To my surprise, I was adding the finishing touches to each model.  I am happy to have them finished.  Another squad removed from the unpainted ranks.

Nova Open Decision

With 18 Days till the Nova Open I need to make a decision on what I want to participate in.  I thought about not doing anything but demos but I decided that I want to play some 40k/  I am going to join in the Nightfighters.

Nova Open

After last year's reaction to the Nova Open I wasn't sure I wanted to go this year.  After I signed up for Shorehammer, I thought for sure I wasn't going to go.  But thing happen and I found I was going to be on my own that week. So, I thought "what the heck!" and now I am heading to the Nova Open.

Game Day!

This weekend we had our monthly Meet Up game day.  I only got to play one game due to some scheduling issues on my part.  A big shout out to Kabbala for hosting and remembering to take pictures.  One of these days I will remember :)

Friday, August 5, 2016


Along with my ghost ark I was working on my lychguard squad.  I have a total of 10 models but two needed replacement swords.  I did get the other eight painted.  On to the pics!
