So what are you are all doing today for games like WH40k, WHFB and other war games? Me, I'm planning on making a Skaven army list and talking to my friend a bit more to try and convince him to purchase a dwarf army he's interested in, how about the rest of Dakka?

When I get home from work, I'm casting more winged butts in urethane resin. In between pouring those, I have a pair of Rhinos I want to try getting a basecoat on - I want to try making a conversion Hyperios and Damocles, respectively.

I am writing some more background for the Only War campaign that I will hopefully running later in the year. Just done the Troopship's history and I plan to make a start on the introductory scenario which will feature the ship's recent owner quite heavily (a Rogue Trader who was executed by the Ordo Xenos for somereason)

Painted some terrain.

No miniatures left to paint at this point.

The sedition Wars pieces will get paint WHEN I decide what I want them to be (I'm turning the boards into terrain pieces, and the minis were going to be repurposed anyway).

Just put The Boy on the bus for his first day of 2nd grade, so my my mid-mornings/afternoons are free for hobby work.

Today's plans are to work on the sarge/flamer/ML from the Battle of Macragge box set, and possibly clean and assemble another bike. Might get to the attack bike today. I also need to clear a landing zone for tomorrow's supply drop. I've got a tub of stuff in simple green that needs to be scrubbed, but would need to clean the kitchen before I get to that. But I want to get that stuff ready for a fresh coat of primer.

I have to level my character for tonight's Pathfinder campaign.

Tomorrow I"ll take part in the Magic Celebration Day because hey, free magic cards. Then when I get home sunday morning after celebrating a buddy's birthday I'll put the finishing touches on my Bolt Action Figs, and prime the next bunch to be painted and probably assemble more US Infantry.

I'm still trying to figure out when historicals became my main game

I'm on a pretty long break from war gaming stuff right now, so the closest thing to it is my 1/700 HMS Rodney build, which is progressing very quickly. It's mostly painting left to go, plus the fiddly nightmare that is photo-etch railings!

I may revisit some of my old High Elf models after the Rodney is completed, as my mini painting skills probably need some practice, and I can't really afford any after-market sets for my remaining ships stash for a while.

Painting more of my farsight enclave. Its a tedious process with rhinox hide base, 2 coats of mephiston red over leg/shoulder/chest armour, fortress grey over center chest/shas'vre head/certain links of the armour, bolt gun for jet pack thrusters. I've only got 5 of my 14 suits to this point and 2 firewarriors.

Then after that I need to do green OSL on their optics, apply freehand marking/decals, then experiment with my FW weathering pigments. Finally I'll worry about basing them properly.

This is what I will be doing for the next few weeks every other days... :(

Painting, painting, painting. For my last birthday almost a year ago, some mates gave me a "Campaign Weekend among Gentlemen" as a gift - i.e. they would write a series of narrative scenarios, provide for beers and food and we would play for one to two days non-stop. Really nice idea, and I got a gift coupon to properly arm myself, too.

As that weekend is (after some drawn-out planning among four members of the active work force) Saturday/Sunday in a week, I still have to get some Chaos stuff finished, so I blocked what free time I had in the course of this and next week and got to paint a bunch of models (mostly the cultists from DV, an squad of FW Death Guard and the Maxmini Siege Gun are the models I'll have to finish within the next few days).

I got a guy from the Spartan games vanguard program coming down to help out me and a couple of mates who have recently started Dystopian wars.
I've also arranged my first game of infinity and there is a chance another mate will show up with Flames of War later too.
As well I have the X wing starter set, the beta rules for Arena Rex, a mordheilm warband, a necromunda gang and I am contemplating throwing two of my battlefleet gothic ships in the car too in case anyone wants to play any of those.

Overall I'm hoping for a good, long day of gaming that doesn't involve 40k or WHFB at all for a nice change of pace

Today I got 2 new Freebooter starters & a few blisters (now I'm only missing the newly released expansion starter) so I just finished assembling one of those crews.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to get a SDE hero painted - down to only 6 minis left to paint from the Roxxor expansion.

Sorted out a bunch of hobby-related files and PDFs on my PC. Wrote up a new blog post for some painted Bones models and posted some pics on three forums after cropping and resizing them in photoshop.

Might play some X-Wing with my wife later tonight and attempt to teach her (some of) the advanced rules..

Might be worthwhile asking some people with Mantic collections - every sprue of Orx has some of these small 'orcling' style things, and anyone who has collected an army of Orx probably has a ton of them unused that they will probably have no use for. I've probably got several bases worth just sitting around in my bits box.

This is what they look like..

Nothing today.

Last night I played my Tyranids vs Tau. Was a great game.
Turns 1-4 I was shot to pieces leaving only a Tyrannofex & Tyrgon Prime on the table.
Turn 5 my MCs kill two tanks including making a 12" charge! The Doom comes in and devastates his troops (rolls 17 for Leadership on one Spirit Leech!) .

His troops on the objective just survived to give him a 4-2 win (Warlord + 3pt objective vs First blood & Linebreaker).
Game ended, but really think I could have got that victory if it went another turn.

But hey, it was a blast with lots of carnage. And they are the games I like, when everything dies on both side. And in the end my 'nids did me proud.

Same here, only aggravated by nerve damaged hands, and a tremor in my right hand when I get tired.

4 left to go, then on to the next unit :(

Today I'm looking at my 6mm sci-fi collection (same scale as Epic stuff, but I don't think any of it is GW) and putting together a couple forces to test out the Alpha Strike rules at the next gaming club meeting.

A local store has just gotten into miniatures by stocking the entire Reaper Bones line, so I'm going to go talk to the owner about doing a miniature painting club day at their store once or twice a month. Their primary gaming is Magic and board games and Pathfinder, so I'll probably start some sort of fantasy skirmish gaming there as well.

Magnetized a DV Terminator with lightning claw and power fist, converted DV Sergeant to have a helmet... Drilled barrel holes on a storm bolter (tricky!), and shaved DA emblems off of two plasma cannon troopers so as to run them in my Devastator squads. Didn't seem like much at the time, but written down it's surprising how much I got done in that hour...

really it is the only way to go. You have to paint so many orks to make an army the only way to not go crazy is to do them one at a time and just be patient.

I spent about 2 hours last night painting boots and rifle-butts on my FoW Paratrooper company. Since they use so little paint each and I'm using Vallejo dropper bottes it seems wasteful to not do all of each colour at a time, even if it's a little dull.

On the plus side, now every team in the company has 2 colours on them, it's a huge improvement. I'm aiming to keep up at a similar pace to have them finished by the end of the month

Today was another club day. I had my first victorious battle with the new Space Marines codex, as well as my first use of the ability to reroll saves versus flamers, which came in with a bang by converting the total destruction of a combat squad to a completely unharmed one. Nonetheless, an immensely satisfying game due to the fact that it was nail-bitingly close. (And I won, which always adds a little sugar to the sauce.)

Update said blog
Continue to clean and assemble honor guard, bikers
Pick the next 4 guys to paint, start.

My goal is to do 4 guys a week, to keep my pace up. I just finished some old Battle of Macragge marines, and need to decide if I'm going with some old metal terminators that have been sitting on the bench forever, or some newer assault marines. The assaults might need to step back from the paint bench to get some magnets put in their backpacks. I was never a fan of drop pod insertion for them, but it might be viable these days.

Yeah, we have a member who is using him as their leader. He's got the best record in the club. I haven't updated the rankings in a while, but it's possible the only games he hasn't won have been multiplayer games and scenarios involving his warband vs a NPC warband.

Lol. Well we had our first game today. 2 of the 3 newbies (Like, they don't know anything about the game) didn't show up and the people I thought would , lets say, not be any good, wrote amazing backgrounds, and played well. Oh yeah, and every eighteen year old in the group with a job managed to get his shift covered and I even got a ride home! So seven players is manageable enough, considering we are starting from level one and there is tonnes of wiggle room.


Anyway, primed my raider, and am finishing off painting a suit of TDA.

@largeblastmarker Any chance of convincing one of your players to co-dm and help you manage rolling and keeping track of stuff? Dropping a player and doubling up your personal resources may be the trick. It even brings up possibilities like splitting the party into two groups to attack a problem (say, a castle/fortress) from two angles, or to have some party members get captured and try to break out without interrupting the overall flow of the game (and then the party meets up for a huge epic clash with the boss!). Its possible to get a couple of part-time co-DMs too, where their characters may have convenient backgrounds explaining occasional absences... just so one guy isn't talked into never playing. Just some thoughts

On topic: I wanna get 16 corporation zombie marines done this month, so today I wanna finish my 3 weapon teams, and or get started on building the last 10 zombie marines.

Working on a setting for the World Of Darkness campagin I will be running next week and onwards,
Beside that I started painting High Elfs once more, Spear Elfs and Dragon princes are the first ones to get primed and such. After that I am considering starting with painting all the armour and metal bitzs on them.

Spent the weekend watching Numb3rs and Castle, reading Dakka and the PP forums, and getting some paint on some PP figures (some of whom appear in my P&M blog), as well as sorting out one of my sofas that was covered in gaming stuff. Now have two tables that need further sorting, but that's a minor issue.

I began conversion work on a DV Tac squad. Running them as Wolves, so...

-Magnetized one Banner to a Bolter Marine so it can be taken if required.
-Replaced the Sergeant's head with a helmet, magnetized his left hand with a power sword or plasma pistol, replaced his right pistol with a boltgun, and shaved off a bunch of iconography.
-Built one Plasma gunner to replace the cannon, which found a home in my devastator company.
-Picked out miscellaneous wolfy bits to use on the boring bolter-equipped marines.

Also primed 8-9 models...

Built a Mycetic Spore from scratch, going to paint that tomorrow probably.

I'm cleaning up an Avenger Strike Fighter I picked up in a trade a little while back and prepping it for assembly. This is my first time to work with FW resin and there is a very strong smell from the particulates that come off while filing. I had read about people saying that FW resin was dangerous if breathed in, and I think I actually believe it now. I'll be covering my face and running a fan when I get back at it tonight.

I'm really happy with the model though, and it will serve as the centerpiece for a Cadian allied force I'm putting together for my Grey Knights.

To my understanding, it's basically that resin tends to make very fine particles that aren't particularly biodegradable when sanded, filed, etc. These get in your lungs, and can irritate in ways that may cause problems. So, yeah, don't breath dust, especially plastic dust.

For me, no hobby time today at all. May try to paint tonight if time permits.

To be fair, resin in general is pretty toxic for the human body, regardless of the company it comes from. To quote Ouze:
Ouze wrote:I decided to don my surgical mask before doing the drilling, since I don't know what this new resin is made of, but I'm sure it's not, you know, vitamins and stuff.


As for me, I'm trying to figure out what to paint my Crimson Fists Successor chapter, I'd be willing to hear any suggestions here.

Today I will start researching prices (second hand) for CSM Rhino NOS and Bloodletters NOS, as well as paint supplies (vallejo) for a DA army (after doing a pallet and cross from GW Citadel paints). Next I'm going to flesh out a 500 and 700-750 point DA list limiting armor to troop transports and no fast attack vehicles. (My play group is just starting out and we are still figuring out what army's to play).

Finally, I'm going to try out Army Painter white primer on an airplane model spru because i'm having a terrible time getting Flat and Gloss white to cover properly on my models (it's so transparent that gray primer shows right through). I don't want my white details to look like poo.

Another busy evening... I figured building two pewter Hive Tyrants wasn't hard enough last time, so I built two more. And magnetized them.

This proved challenging.

The metal sword and lash whip were very difficult to magnetize while ensuring security, so they were installed wih the aid of 10 magnets. This tyrant actually has a really decent pose while maintaining the magnetized versatility, which I am happy about. I will buy plastic for the other one, it was just a lot of labour dealing with the metal.

Anyhow, they are magnetized and assembled, yay, but what else needs doing? Oh, the carnifexes. I magnetized three carnifexes, too - arms and heads. I will do the tails as well, once I find a good source on bits, but for now they're looking good.

A good way to burn a few hours that shoud have been spent doing schoolwork. It was great.

Made the base for what will be the first board section for my Mordheim table. I've already made the table itself. It's basically a 4' by 4' construct around 3" deep. The board sections will then slot into the table. Planning to make around 8 board sections each with different themes e.g. city streets, market square, river quay, garden of morr, skaven quarter etc etc and then swap them around for variety. The depth will enable me to have some sections below street level e.g. catacombs, sewers, rivers and so forth.

Then I pulled out all the models I could find and played a 2v2 40k game at 2k per person. Colonel Strakken kicked but today, killing 2 deathwing terminators, a librarian, and Belial in assault over 4 turns before dying. He will be getting stripped of paint and given a new paint job in reward.

Back to pinning.

This evening I again avoided my university responsibilities and began work on my 6 DV bikers. Until now they were in primer and left until last... but no longer. I basecoated the bikes a light tan, and the Marines red as usual - see Bolter Brother Benny in my gallery for the Marine scheme. I learned that bikes are larger than they seem.

So many small areas to detail! They're all ready for detail work, that's for tomorrow. Once done, I will post photos... Still contemplating which helmeted head to swap onto the hopelessly bald squad leader. I'm thinking about putting some wolfy icons on them, as well, but we'll see.

I also primed 2 Tyrants and 3 Carnifexes. Yay!

Going to finish the last of the wow board game miniature "commission" and then 4 more WoW miniatures from another friend

Once that's all done and done, I'll probably start figuring out if I'm really going to sell my Necrons and finally accept I'm a complete IoM fanboy and that I deserve some SPESH MAREENS!

P.S: nkelsch, your work is FANTASTIC!

I just finished painting up the marine squad from Dark Vengeance and will be moving on to the Terminator squad. Haven't quite decided what color scheme I'm going to go with, but I'm thinking yellow and black. The marines are primarily red with grey "under armor" or whatever it is, and black/bronze weapons.

Pretty exciting stuff! We may be heading to the local hobby store this evening, because my wife realized that she has nothing in her Chaos Demon army yet that can shoot anything, and that upsets her greatly

Painted the green translucent undead figures from the Bones Kickstarter for a commission (only a week late...).

Took longer waiting for the paints and inks to dry than it did to paint all of the figures. (Matte coat, wait to dry. Wash, wait to dry. Green ink, wait to dry. Drybrush with glow-in-the-dark paint, wait to dry (not very long ). Brown ink in eye sockets, wait to dry. Base, wait to dry, Matte coat, wait to dry. Ship.)

The figure was late because the art store was out of Higgins' waterproof green ink.

Not counting drying time, maybe an hour?

The Auld Grump, including drying time... three days....

I'll probably prime them black before I go to work this evening and start painting on them tommorrow.

I hate that.

I built a long fang with missile launcher, a grey hunter with plasma gun, two Lictors (metal!), magnetized a DV sergeant with a bolter, magnetized a banner, rebuilt a marine that was missing a bolter, and tried to come up with a good Wolfy foot list.

A good day overall!

Getting the last 2 of my BWG models together. Then probably sanding down some of the mounting tabs (some stick down past the base).

If I get really ambitious, I may get some play sand and start basing them, but probably not.

Downloaded and installed the Magic Set Editor, and made some Combat Tactic reminder cards. Real easy to use. While I was at it, printed out some cards for the SM warlord traits I had downloaded earlier and sleeved them all. Right now they are B&W on plain paper, but I might re-jigger the page size and run them through my color printer on 4x6 photo paper.

Got my army packed and ready, game is at 3. Will stop by the grocery store and pick up a 6-pack of beer and some chips to share.

I've got about an hour to kill before I head out, spending it here on Dakka.

This is an excellent idea. I may be forced to do the same for my game this evening. I spent this morning tweaking my Footwolves list for tonight, now there are 100% more lascannons. And more terminators.

If you make a cheater tool from a couple extra magnets and a piece of tubing it gets super easy and almost impossible to screw up. I am magnetizing my BT marines.
