Day 22; 1 Week Left, 1 Model to go!

Posted by diretrolljake on September 22, 2008

I spent about 1 hour on each bone jack and approx. 30 minutes per model on the Combine and Skarlock.

And a shot of my army, not picturing Gaspy, Cankerworm and Slayer. All in the display at the store.

Up next is Gorman, which I had 3 but traded or donated here and there to new players and, well…I thought I had one left. Picking him up at the store tomorrow.

Day 14 – Sorry, no pix

Posted by diretrolljake on September 15, 2008

Today was quite successful in the world of painting. In one hour’ish sitting, I managed to watch part of my ATHF Season 5 Disc 1 and paint up both Bone-Turkeys. I am waiting till they are based and sealed before I take pix, however I am all out of glue! And I am broke till Thursday. So…onward with the painting and the bastards are remaining without basing for a few days.

I also base coated 2/3 of the Combine and have my Skarlock about halfway done, who should be done tonight thanks to this 3rd shift sleeping pattern.

Also, just to rub it in your faces, I plan to paint up a batch of soul tokens and 2 light wreck markers too 😛

Day 11 – The Lich is based and finished

Posted by diretrolljake on September 11, 2008

I finished this guy in one night but it took me a few to get around to basing him. He’s a bit sloppy but looks great on the table.

Day 6, Gaspy comin around

Posted by diretrolljake on September 7, 2008

I was thinking he needed a scythe but didn’t want to build one, then I remembered that my Anima Tactics Darkness starter was mispacked with 2, did some clipping, some bending, and perfect fit! The slight arm reposes and the tilt on the body adds a much needed pose to the static old school PP sculpt.

I want to add some shadow wings to him, but can’t find anything within reason for the time frame I’m working with on the blog. Maybe I will have to make the 750 a TRUE Epic Gaspy. We will see what I come up with.

Day 4 : Off to a late start

Posted by diretrolljake on September 4, 2008

Day 1 was a bit hazy, slacked off and went to a party. Good fun tho.
I primed on Day 2
Day 3 I began painting this guy, and I finished him today. Could be done better, but I am painting quickly for the sake of being done.

Pix aren’t the greatest, but will make a better gallery as the blog progresses.

Iron Lich’s Iron Lynch

Posted by diretrolljake on August 25, 2008

Faction: Cryx
Points: 350
Model Count: 9
Victory Points: 13

Iron Lich Asphyxious
Cankerworm
Deathripper
Defiler
Gorman di Wulfe, Rogue Alchemist
Skarlock Thrall
Withershadow Combine    [3]

My list is based on my newfound love for the Cankerworm and what better way to exploit this little bugger than with his master and creator, Asphyxious ? My plans include corrosion, spell slingin’, and healthy dose of Lich beatdowns.

I have played all factions aside from Cygnar multiple times so I am not aiming for anything special other than fun so don’t expect to see any Bane Knight’s or Bile Thralls unless we go past 750 into the 1k range, even then, I will likely grab something else along the lines of Blackbane and some Deathjack.
