I find it easier to get the pose I want without worrying about screwing up my paint job with glue/damage. I’ve also taken the view that unless I enter an in person painting competition (highly unlikely) no one is ever going to see the hidden bits I missed painting! It all depends on what your happy with I suppose


Thanks gobert! With me its the other way round (at least atm), my sisters progress slow, because I paint heads, backpacks and sometimes arms with weapons seperately.

CaptainWaffle wrote:I agree with gobert. If you're not painting for competition try not to sweat the small stuff. Odds are, if it's difficult to get to you won't see it anyway and can get away with black or basic paint on it. Have your own standards, though. This is your hobby after all.

Great work on the beasties.


Thanks Captain Waffle! And yeah, probably only see the stuff if I hold the mini upside down in a certain angle, so you're right.

I'm not really versed in lore, but I can get behind that, would be nice if they do some more minis like that.


And I had a painting session yesterday evening and finished them. Although a combination of tiredness, impatience and a brush that wasn't able to keep a point to save his life were a dangerous combination and resulted in some very sloppy "edge" highlights. It didn't help, that I didn't paint the rim of the armor in a metallic color. But all told I'm not disappointed and they are ready for battle this weekend. And some of their brethren already joined them, had to unify the base rim and add snow to the Bullgryns and Rein & Raus.

Oh, wow, these Beastmen make me so happy! You've done a really nice job with the color selection and the unit composition. One of my favorite illustrations of all time was of an Imperial Guard regiment standing at ease and posing for the "camera" with all of the unit types represented. I think there some Beastmen in it, definitely Ogryns and Ratlings, a jet bike and a tank and a pile of classic uniformed Guardsmen. It's what me want to play Guard. Your mixed group totally reminds me of that. There was also one of Ogryns and Beastmen on patrol, guns at the ready... classic B&W art. Let me know if you want to me scrounge up some 2nd Ed. art and lore... my buddy has a basement full of old game books.

Loving the abhumans, keep up the great work!

Great work on the Abhumans, the colours work really well to unite the bunch of different creatures. The Ogryns are particularly good, the goatee chap ties in well with the beastmen imho!

Thanks so much guys, really happy you like them! As I said, I'm not well up on the lore, but I just love the look of abhumans or even xenos allies, even if the imperium would not approve. Would love to see some more ratlings, I have the sniper squad painted, but they have never seen play, but are earmarked for the next imperial soup game, whenever that will be.

And here are some shots of the kill team commanders game on saturday, my AM vs. my friend's orcs. My mission was to get the beastman leader over the other edge. He had 20 orcs that wanted to stop that and because of the deployment zones for this mission it was carnage from the get go.
I won in the end, but it was a close thing in round three. His snazzgun did wound my tempestor prime twice, but I had one beastman scion take the hit with the look out sir tactic (he was the best beastman, killing a burna boy with his hot-shot-lasgun turn 1) so my boss only lost 2 of his 4 wounds. But of course the stupid flash git rolled a 6 and shot again at my leader. He wounded, I couldn't save but luckily, he just got a flash wound. And in the following close combat phase my two Bullgryns killed 6 orcs and my friend failed the break test and that was it.
Gotta say, with 82 points combined the Bullgryns weren't cheap, but T5 counts for a lot and those mauls with S7 and D2 are amazing in kill team.

Thanks, it was, although my friend was a little miffed, once I started clobbering all those orcs

Looking on the calendar it's high time that I start on my painting comp entry, neophyte is gonna be the reference model for clothes and armor and I want to try to replicate and hopefully improve the stipling method I used on the ratling cloak.

And next weekend is probably another bout of Mordheim, so I'm gonna paint both blue ghosts as zombies (still undecided on color), grey one as another dreg and the gryphhounds gonna be direwolves.

The abhuman scions look great. I love when people explore the dark corners of the 40k setting. And of course it is always nice seeing painted models on painted terrain in a battle.

And because my hobby table was really crowded, I cleaned up a bit and sorted my paints. It'll probably hold a week or so, before it descends back into chaos

Really enjoyed the pics from your game, nice to see painted armies on the table. Your painting area is how mine should look but alas it is in a constant state of disarray. New models are looking good, the genestealer cult has some very nice sculpts. Cant wait to see what you do with them.

Globalisation can do good stuff too Good to know that stuff is also around in the US.

It really does, though you are ahead with the ogres. Interested to hear, how they fare in WarCry. I'm building 4 warbands atm, so my friends can test the game without having to build up a force beforehand. Apart from ogres I have already painted models of Kharadron Overlords (albeit a paintjob from when I startetd painting, so I may do a few touchups), Ossiarch Bonereapers (still all on sprue) and SCE Sacrosanct (all build and primed, some painted).

Yeah, I really love the GSC models and actually bought the codex last year with plans to do a 40k army. But after calculating, what I would need to buy, build and paint I stopped that endeavour and have now about 25 models that will get painted for Kill Team and that will be that.

Thanks, looking back over the models from last year, purple is unmistakenly my go to color when devising a new scheme And no worries, order really doesn't hold long on the desk

Syro_ wrote:Wow! Super organized.


Thanks and what I said to gobert, it won't last

We played Mordheim Friday evening and our modified ruleset seems to work out. We capped the starting budget at 250 GC and max warband size is 2/3 of the normally allowed. Makes for fast games, we managed three that evening. Problem was, that the dwarf player wasn't there last time, so we other two were two games ahead and had the stronger forces. But only one of his models died (the costly one with the crossbow ), but next time he should be more on par.

Had to finish two zombies and one dreg for the game and really love, how a different paintjob on a chainrasp can help with differentiating the models. Painted them to match my necromancer to show they belong together. In reality they did nothing in both my games, because not being able to sprint the ambled over the battlefield never reaching anyone

The gaming pics are first my fight against the dwarves, that didn't end well for those little treasure hunters. Second pic is Middenheimer vs. the dwarves and a big win for humanity and the last shot is kind of exemplary of the last games, that tend to end in a bar brawl in the Stoic Arms. Positioned my vampire (Keldrek) badly and killed to of my friend's model but was lucky in return, that I only lost the dark elf assassin and then my friend failed his rout test, could have ended bad for me.

Love me some Mordheim, though its probably been about three years since Ive played. I always ran Mercenaries so never played The Undead.

I will probably be trying out the Warcry Ogres Saturday at a GW run tournament. Havent 100% decided if Im going but if I do I will let you know how they fare.

I can't say it often enough, it is an amazing table my friend put together. And well, the necromancer may look the part, but he was taken out of action in 3 of 4 games, so he has to try a little harder next time

I started out with mercs and have a averlander warband currently on hold, but ready to spring into action, they leveled up nicely, nearly every hero has 2 or 3 wounds. And good luck, if you're going to the tournament!

youwashock wrote:Big love for the game shots. Sounds like the Undead are tearing it up.


The table is made for taking pics, it's always great fun, I'm posting an old shot under this post, that got a little editing, vampire lord vs my swordsman. It was our first campaign some time ago and the swordsman fell the vampire.
And can't complain atm with my Undead, although overall it's still pretty balanced between our warbands and hopefully stays that way.

Thanks posermcbogus Actually stole that idea from another blog, Gwyn is painting up some nice ghosts too and used similar colors.

As announced the battle shot from ye olde times and then my current progress on the gunslinger, finally started putting paint on him, 70-80% are now blocked in.
