More Wyrm Wips

More progress last night on the Dragons!   Less talk more pics!!

My Demon Prince.  Reaper bones pathfinder red dragon.  Perfect

Ask the Bastards #10

This question is from Annie:

I am a sculptor and years ago ventured into the awful world of resin casting. After realizing our fresh midwestern air didn't have a chance with this crap hanging in the air, I went back to a plaster formula I devised that works beautifully and is basically environmentally safe. Problem? It can break and chip. I now have a customer who is interested in thousands of one item which naturally I cringe at the thought of doing - (I don't have that many elf friends), and am trying to find a resin caster here in the states who could take on a job of this magnitude. 

This one is a little outside our area of expertise but we thought we'd throw it out there if any readers do know of a good resin caster in the U.S. 

If you do, comment on this post or drop Annie a line at annieslanding@gmail.com!

Thanks for looking. 

Skull Crushers

I'm long over due for this post.  For Waaaghpaca I chose to do a brand new Warriors army.  One of the first conversion ideas I came up with for this army was Skull Crushers riding giant lizards.  I realize it's a bit of pattern for me with the giant lizards.  What can I say, they look cool.  

Opening a can of Wyrms

After seeing The Desolation of Smaug last year I was inspired with an idea for a new project.  An army centered entirely around dragons.  Thankfully, the silly WoC army book supports such an idea.  So now, I embark on a new project using the WoC list and quite a few of my Reaper Bones models.  (*Disclaimer - No GW models will be harmed, or used, in the creation of this project)  Additionally, I had acquired some chibi models of the characters from the old D&D Cartoon from my youth.  This was my absolute favorite cartoon ever!!!

Warhammer Quest - Dungeon Tiles Completed


Warhammer Quest is back on the menu boys!

Recently I had to prep some models for a GT and once that was done work was to begin in earnest on my new fantasy army.  However, I decided I wanted to finish another project first which would give me some more practice with the Airbrush.  My WHQ base set models were done, now it was time to get the game tiles done!!

Labor Day Weekend - Rockwars Prep Tourney


Panoramic view of my basement during the tourney
Shows all 6 tables

Since Rockwars was such a unique comp system I decided that a prep tournament was in order.  My wife and child were planning on leaving for Labor Day weekend to visit in-laws so I figured this would be the perfect time to have a ton of friends over for a big tournament while getting valuable practice in.

Reviewing the size of my basement I decided that I could fit 6 tables and thus the 12 person cap was created.  I will be travelling with 3 other guys from the greater Chicago area so they were first on the invite list.  After that the invite went out to other local clubs and the result was 12 players who were excited about the comp system and for a great day of Warhammer.

Rogers' Hobby Desk - Episode 109

As described in episode 109 of Point Hammered, I haven't been up to much on the hobby front!


I've really just been waiting for this guy's base to arrive. Once that shows up, I can begin work on him in earnest. Other than that, I've just been dickin' around with an exalted flamer model a bit, trying to figure out what I want to do with that for Northstar.

Have I run out of hobby gas after QCR and Podge? I guess we'll see!

Rockwars GT Preparation


Rockwars GT 2014 will be commencing in a little over a week on September 12-14.  For those of you who haven't heard of this tournament please take a look at it for next year and read the rules on their website here: http://rockwarsgt.com/

Due to the nature of the tournament and it's composition I had plenty of work to do to prepare!  This post is all about that preparation including new units/models and a look at the unique comp system.  Post 2 will be about a 12 man Prep Tournament that I held at my house using the Warscore program and Post 3 will be in a few weeks documenting how poorly I performed in Little Rock.
