Prepping for the Rogue Trader campaign I'm GMing, yet another project I'm doing with my study and stuff lol. First session was fun despite my bemusement about how the starship combat works. The player's Navigator is a gigantic arsehole and knows he's a character in a P&P RPG because of his powers lol

Last night I made a start on two rogue psykers from BSF for the Dakka Painting Challenge. Trying out some contast on them as well as that gorgeous "new" base paint Gal-Vorbak red.

Getting a practise game in for another league I'm entering at my local GW today. 1000 points of Eldar using the beachhead mission from CA2018.

EDIT: Had a good game, played against an Ork horde army which I barely managed to deal with. It didn't help that I couldn't wipe a squad and my opponent redeployed the mob at full strength and "Da Jump"ed them. It's given me some things to consider for this small points league. I have to find a decent balance between hordes, anti-tank and playing the objective.

Further work on Deathwatch infrantry batch #3. 3 finished so far, hoping to get another 5 done to complete this latest batch. Considering getting some vehicles when I get paid to bring about some real fire support.

Edit: aaaand done, 8 more marines join my Deathwatch company, for a total of 70 vets (15 Vanguard, 10 terminator, 45 veterans), a Watch Captain and a Venerable Dread. Not sure I have the motivation to start painting anything else today, but will try.

Change of pace today. After I finished painting my Deathwatch yesterday, I primed batch #4 of my Deathwatch infantry (20 more vets) as well as some of the Shadowspear Primaris and a Repulsor tank for my Crimson Fists. I've spent most of my morning slapping blue, red and silver on the Repulsor, still a long way to go.

Had a game of Sharp Practice, fighting a small skirmish in the American Civil War. The Confederates (under my control) are petitioning high command for a new general, there is talk of asking for a dead dog to be promoted as "it can't be any worse".

this is mutiny...

have assembled a regiment of British line, Victrix models in 28mm, to help console myself.

ending up looking at them and thinking "bugger, I now have to paint these swine"

Today I have based a regiment of 28mm British for the Peninsular War, to be primed tomorrow once the filler has cured.

Also put the skin tones and base beige on a squad and a bit of 28mm SS who have been lurking on my table for months in an attempt to actually get them finished.

plus a wash coat on parts of a Death Guard rhino meaning thats nearly done as well

Worked away on my Rogue Psykers and spindle drones from BSF. Really pleased with the progress on them so far. The FW paint Gal Vorbak red is just gorgeous and may replace Mephiston red as my go to red paint now.

Editing my damn Warhammer 40k fanfic: Secret War on Grammarly, this despite doing using my NaNoWriMo last year editing the hell out of the 240,000 word monstrosity. I don't know why but either Grammarly missed that stuff or it regressed to an older version of the document. (I use it because my dyslexic ass is terrible at editing)

Played a 125 point game of my Death Guard

Plague champion leader with power fist and plasma gun.
Plague Marine fighter zealot with boltgun
Plague Marine gunner demolitions with blight launcher
Plague Marine gunner veteran with plasma gun
3x Plague Marine with bolt gun
3x Poxwalkers

Vs some kind of Imperial guard force with a huge elite guy who was a melee monster. Not familiar with their force as I'm barely familiar with mine. I don't have the Elites book, and despite us kind of specifying core only he had a big Elite guy. Oh well.

We played the Sweep and Clear mission and I lost. I kept rolling horribly. His guys were very squishy but I kept rolling 1 on my wound rolls, 4 in a row at one point when unloading with my plasma guys. And then when hit I would always fail my save, then my Disgustingly Resilient saves. Wasn't very up on using the command points yet and need to go over those aspects a lot more. But it was fun. the rule set seems cool, though the small battle grounds kind of throw me.

We are mostly into playing historical games like Chain of Command, Bolt Action, and other games of that type, but a few of the guys are big time 40k fans so I'll play an odd game with them now and then I think going forward. I'm looking for a 40k skirmish rule set to play casual games with my brother over beers and shots as well and I think this will work.

Does 40k itself support smaller games of 10-20 infantry models? I remember a skirmish add on for old WFB but 40k was always more skirmishy than rank and flank by default. One of the guys sold me a couple sprues of the Nurgle guys from a starter set, 5x marines and a Lord of Contagion along with a drone and 10 more pox walkers. That will get me up to the LoC, 15 plague marines, 16 pox walkers, and the drone.

Going to pick up a box of primaris marines and that will put me up to 12 of those dudes as well, so I have an opposing force.

Anyway overall I'll give game 1 a thumbs up!
