Black Templar Display Board WIP

Hi all! Long time no see! Summer is winding down, so naturally I'm racing to finish more than necessary.  With both Armies on Parade and Shorehammer coming up, I wanted to create a display board. Earlier this year, I completed a display board in a three day period for my friend. I did not hit that goal this time.

Black Templar Crusader Squad Finished

Hi All - The Summer Painting Challenge Continues.

I'm at the point where I'm trying not to say "I'm running out of things to paint" - Except that I am running out of 'priority' things to paint. I'm still got plenty of miniatures that need paint, but the vast majority are simply bringing tabletop quality models up to my 'best' quality models with highlight and washes. Many of these were painted when I was in my teens or college years, when It was literally spraypaint black, paint brown boots, metal gun, blue-grey armor for all my guard models. I also just finished practicing 'upgrading' one of these old Arcadian 4th (My custom guard regiment) models, and he doesn't look to shabby.

Anywho, here's the challenge update.

To finish...

  • Black Templar Phobus Armor LT (1 model - received and built)
  • Two Squads of Ten Vostroyan Guard including heavy weapon bases.
  • Four man command squad (Flamer, Medic, Comms and Grenade Launcher)
  • Three Vostroyan Snipers (just picked one up - now I have a special weapons squad!)
  • Eleven Black Templar Crusaders
  • Black Templar Apothecary
  • 2 Alpha Legion Obliterators
  • Alpha Legion Master of Possession
  • Alpha Legion Sorcerer 
  • Five Plague Ogryns (or Aberrants) 
Finished - 83 miniatures
Unfinished - 30ish

At this rate I'll have hit 100 by the end of July IF I can get started on these damn Vostroyans. Still trying to decide if I want to do the constrast paint on them for purple (but I'm unsure if it will match my other paint style) or just my normal purple, wash and highlight on the cloth.

Oh, and did I mention I'm looking at getting a custom platoon from Anvil Industries to match the Vostroyans and add some heft without breaking the bank too bad? Yea....gonna have to wait on that.

Blockade out.

The Bazaar 2019

Every August Fantasy Books and Games has their annual Bazaar where we can bring in items and they will sell them in a consignment like transaction. The catch is, instead of getting a cut they give you store credit.  It is a cool deal and you can find some real bargains.  Here is what I got this year.

THe Hobby Butterfly Strikes Again

With every intention to paint up some acolytes this weekend, I ended up painting up a new warband for the new Warcry game.  I knew when the GW previewed the Corvus Cabal that if the game looks even remotely fun I would be getting these models.  After watching a few battle reports I was hooked.

Moar Shorehammer talk.

Last time I talked about Shorehammer, I was on the fence on which army I wanted  take. Since then, I decided to go with the Genestealer Cult (GSC). They are a different type army and my friend has thrown the gauntlet down for our grudge match and he want to face the GSC.
