I'm making the move to Age of Sigmar, and have been playing around with rebasing ideas. I really didn't want to rip the old bases off, as I'd spent a ton of time on them. Wayne over at the TC War Room in Traverse City Michigan came up with a genius idea. He also generously sent me a free batch of cavalry conversion bases.
Here's what he came up with. Laser cut wood drop in bases!
With the collapse of Warhammer, I've been having fun with other systems. Messing around with papercraft for Infinity has gotten me intrigued in other aspects of hobby craft not directly related to the miniatures themselves.
This post will explain all the material involved and show you how to put these sumbitches together!
Quick update of some of the painting I was able to accomplish during my Paint Escalation League as well as a little history on how they've performed so far.
I painted a Rhino a Razorback and a Venerable Dreadnought. I was waiting to do this blog post since I want to do some battle damage, and some dirt on the tanks, but after a month I realized that other models will be taking priority so wanted to show the efforts I have made. IF I manage to go back and add the details that I want to I will change up the pictures here.
The hobby bug has bitten me in a massive way. I've fallen head over heels in love with Infinity from Corvus Belli. In addition to lovely models, lots of terrain is required to play this game. There are quite a few various manufacturers of MDF Laser cut / etched terrain out there. I recently attended Gencon and saw a bunch of the Warsenal terrain painted in person which quickly led to me purchasing a few pieces.
Games workshop is doing some very different things with this game including giving away free starter sets, free rules, and GASP - free models with the White Dwarf. As such two of the Bastards (myself and Jon Kerr) went ahead an painted the free model up, with a few of our own touches of course!
For today, no hobby pics (your eyeballs need a break from the awesome). Instead, I've got the 2nd half of the introductions. This time I've got the Non-SkullBros/Chumps here to introduce themselves a bit and boy are they weird. You've gotten a sneak-peek at what they were up to for Month 1; now, meet the bastards themselves:
So this is coming (way) late. Yep, I'm the worst. Deal with it.
Jean Ralphio came up 4th in a Google image search for "the worst" I love Google.
On the flip side, get ready to have your eyes blown by a week (yes, literally a week) of sweet hobby pictures. I'll be doing the hobby updates from the last two months over the course of this week and then we'll be back on schedule. So really, you can thank me for your week of awesome.
