SkullBros Escalation Month 2 Updates (pt1)

Hey folks,

The catch-up continues--on to Month 2. At this point, shit's all over the place, so keeping SkullBros and Non-SkullBros separate seems silly. Plus, I'm just that lazy.

Shadowed Angels - Tactical Squad and Deathwing Squad

The Shadowed Angels

"The light that was shadowed then
Was seen to be our chapter,
Everything about us that might wish to be examined,
Then put away for a certain length of time, until
The whole is to be reviewed, and determined to be 
Pure once again."

SkullBros Escalation League Introductions (Part 2)

Hey stinks,


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:

Last of the Month 1 Updates

Hey y'all,

Glad we could do this a 2nd time today. Usually you pay double for that kind of action.

On to the non-SkullBros. These boys have spent some time dealing with us and we're pretty big assholes, so they must be cool. Let's see what they've been up to...

SkullBros Escalation -More Month 1 Updates-

Hey folks,

Let's keep this up. I've got Escalation League updates from more of the other SkullBros from Month 1!

Heyyeyaaeyaaaeyaeyaa

SkullBros Escalation Month 1 Updates (Or, why I stink)

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.

ThickSkin FTW - Display Board Creation


This display board came together pretty quickly and turned out looking pretty solid.  The main issue was creating a display board that would fit so many large units!

Nurgle rides to war....on BOARS

Porcine Putrefactors of Nurgle 


As promised this will be the post going through each unit in more detail, some of the conversions and paint.  Overall this was a really fun project to work on up until I got to the paint side.  Converting up Nurgle had to be one of the most fun things I've worked on and the new boars from GW (well not really that new anymore) are amazing.  I really wish the Boar Boyz were better in the game so we saw them on the table more.  I was excited to paint until the deadlines started getting too close.  Next thing I knew I had only 5 days to paint the entire army for Adepticon.  That is why it wasn't as much fun, because my fingers were bleeding by the end and I was sleep deprived!

Thick Skin For the WIN - Nurgle Warriors

I had/have been dreaming about building a Nurgle Warriors army since the time my friend Kent painted up some Nurgle Warriors.  I say both had and have because I still dream about having a Nurgle warriors of chaos army as the one I have built isn't quite a full army yet.  I played 3 practice games with proxied models against him and some friends back in the day but just never got around to it...

AoW: Marauder Champion - Call to Glory General

Before I bailed on the Call to Glory campaign, I finished this guy to lead the force.

It's the Avatars of War Marauder Champion model.

I'm not enthused by the pics. They're a bit washed out, but oh well. I'm sick of waiting for a nice cloudy day to take pics.
