So with the boys finished(ish) and a little time to spare, I thought I would have a go at making a decent display board/tray to carry them around the event with. I had originally got hold of a plastic ikea tray for the purpose of carrying them around, but it looked a bit naff and they slid everywhere. I then go hold of an old cork notice board with the intention of removing the cork and adding it to the plastic tray to add a bit of grip.
With the luxury of time on my hands though, I decided to try and take it up a notch and do a simple texture layout for the army to sit on. Nothing complex or too ambitious, just something to make it look like I made an effort The bear minimum of course, but an effort none the less!
The painting continues unabashed as tomorrow’s deadline closes in! With all the infantry and vehicles now done (the tanks and drop pods being done to such a bad standard that they are not really worthy of a post in their own right) I can now focus on the last piece of the puzzle – the HQ units.
So preparations for the tournament continue, and furious painting is taking place in the wee hours of the morning to try and get everything done. Another milestone today as another section of the force is completed in record time – namely the dreadnoughts
First off, apologies for not having posted in a few weeks – alas, this has been to do with stuff going on away from the hobby (aka real life) which has demanded my undivided attention. Unfortunately this will also be going on for the foreseeable future so my posting may become quite intermittent and sporadic.
Another round up of my articles over on Creative Twilight. As promised, a better effort this month has seen me bang out a mighty four articles! Mwahahahah! Eat your heart out BoLS!
OK, so not really that impressive as this is pretty much the minimum target I set myself of one per week (approximately) and this is the first time I have managed to hit that target. Still, better than nothing, here’s what’s on offer this month:
October 1st: Mr. Fluffy Goes to Tourney Town Pt. 5 – Legion of the Damned
October 7th: October White Dwarf Review
October 13th: Whats the Time Mr. Wolf? Feeding time!’ Tau Empire vs Champions of Fenris
October 28th: Hemera’s End – A 40K Campaign League
As usual I would highly recommend popping over and have a quick read, there is plenty on the site for gamers and hobbyists alike. Enjoy!
MISSION 3.2: Supply & Demand
A series of lightning strikes against smaller, less well defended outposts in the outlying regions of Titan Prime by the Ultramarines have begun the slow process of sowing discord amongst the rebels and their Tau Allies. The dull thud of ordnance and the crackle of gunfire now echo sporadically throughout the planets verdant countryside.
Sometime last year, I raised the idea of setting up a regular ‘league’ at my FLGS here in Hong Kong. There are many regular gamers here, representing the whole spectrum of power levels from the WAACineers to the Fluff Bunnies, and everywhere in between. To my surprise, there was no interest in a plain old league. Absolutely none. The main reason for this was that leagues were a bit boring. What people really wanted was a ‘Campaign League’ – something with a bit of narrative that they could sink their teeth into.
