Saim-Hann Eldar Return - Combat Patrol

Saim-Hann Eldar

This post will show all the new models I have completed for my Saim-Hann Eldar and go through a run down of my 4 Combat Patrol games and how I performed in my first 40k event.

Adepticon was fast approaching and I decided to sign up for a 40K Combat Patrol tournament on Thursday evening back in September.  Considering what I had painted (see prior post) it was difficult to make a decent list.  Of course I, as any hobbyist is known to do, procrastinated.  So began a whirlwind of painting started 2 weeks before Adepticon to get 400 points of Eldar ready to go.

Dwarf Miners (The Second 5)

I've finally gotten around to finishing the Miners I started way back when. They're called 'The Second 5' because the first lost was called 'The First 5'. The first lads were finished just over a year ago, lol. The First 5 Blog Post

These guys were done as a side project, to keep me painting while I work on ton of conversions.

Beginner Airbrush Information

Hi all.  A friend of mine recently asked me what I am using for airbrushing and what it would take to get him started in airbrushing.  I put together a list for him and thought I would share it with the rest of ya'all.  It's in a rough format but I think you will get the idea.

** DISCLAIMER ** - I'm not an expert at this, still very new to it but learning.  This is the stuff I am using and some info / websites to get you started researching. I make no claims that it is the best.  Do NOT take this as gospel - there are lots of opinions out there.  (PS - I chose the airbrush I did based on a recommendation from Matthieu Fontaine a couple of years ago.)

Dragons on the horizon!

Hey chumps!

I've finally got some time to throw up some more posts on here. Between WaaaghPaca, Masters, and various work things kicking my butt, my free time has been in short supply. Don't worry though--this won't be a long post.

Orctonnian Pigasus Knight

I have finally accomplished some hobby work, after about 3 weeks of no activity. I present the first Orctonnian Pigasus Knight:
All told I have just over 50 hours into this model; that includes conversion and paint time, as well as building the custom base.

Quick Hills

In preparation for Oh-Con this year I offered to make up 50+ hills for the event.  As a challenge I gave myself 1 weekend to complete the task.  Here is the step by step process I used.

On the Thursday before the weekend I collected all my materials.

Warhammer Quest - 3D

Warhammer Quest - not the IPAD verison, but the tabletop version is an amazingly fun game.  I was introduced to this game in September of 2013 and it has since become a huge project to create this game for my own gaming use.

After seeing how much this game went for on EBay for a handful of old mono-pose models and some cardboard I (with the help of my good friend Jake for the PDF) went about creating my own Warhammer Quest.  I was not the first to have this idea to build a 3D version nor will I likely be the last, but I thought I would share where a lot of time has gone in the past few months.

This is an update to the progress of this project.

Waaaghpaca - Gamers and the Fabulous Tables

It turns out that getting mugged and tabled in a couple of my games at Waaaghpaca gave me an opportunity to take a great deal of pix at the event and share them on Twitter.  In this blog post I will be sharing my pics of gamers in action on the fabulous tables and terrain at Waaaghpaca.  Be warned that this is a very heavy picture laden blog post.  Enjoy.

Art Decco Warriors of Chaos Display Board

For the Warriors I opted to go with something completely original and out of the box.  Sort of a geometrical Art Decco inspired board, something completely different from any Display Board I've ever made.  I'm very happy with the final result as I got a lot of great feedback about the

Dream Home Display Board

As most of you know I really enjoy making Display Boards.  Well, here's something a bit different.  I took one for the team and assisted in the creation of this "unique" Display Board for a Barbie inspired Dark Elf army painted by Chris Gibney.

Chaos Dwarf Display Board on the Quick

In preparation for Waaaghpaca I had a few friends in need of display boards for their armies.  Given I had a lot of painting to completed on my army I only had 1 day to knock out a few display boards.  First up is a simple board for Andy's Chaos Dwarf army.

Resin Casting Bases

Ello All!

I recently ventured into resin casting some bases for my new High Elf army and many asked if I would document the process.  So keep reading past the break and we'll dive right into it!

Dragon Ogres FTW!

Long time without out a post.  It turns out that having a 4 year old, contributing to 2 podcasts and a ton of painting projects limits my surplus time.  But I'm glad to say that I have rectified the situation and there is a ton of glorious content coming your way in the next few weeks.

Bull Ogre Minotaur Command Models

I've been busy as a bee finishing these fellas up for the Masters tourney next weekend. I'm so relieved to be done that I cannot express it in words.
The standard bearer was done using skin tones I've never before tried. I'm sick of painting the same thing, and I have a bunch of old colors that I never use. Those two things sounded like the perfect reason to try some new things.

First Commission: Arachnarok

I recently took on my first commission painting job.

The model was the Arachnarok and it was asked that it match some black / grey spiders in an existing army.

Since we got like 7 inches of snow Friday night, and my neighbor sno-blowed my driveway I used this past weekend to complete this project.
