A bit more progress on Eisenhorn, he's...challenging. I fixed his face up a bit more and he looks okay. I've been using a lot of wet blending to get the brown on his cloak and the maroon on the insides of his cloaks. I think it would've been better to paint his unassembled, in all honesty. Now! Here's my young Anargrin from the short story The Angaran Chronicles: An Ulterior Motive, which is set during their medieval age. I'm quite happy with him, just think I gotta more subtly build down to the darker parts of his face. His left eye looks weird, but seems fine most of the time, hmm.

Just finally took the plunge and played my 1st two scenarios of Space Station Zero today. Challenges 1 and 3, it was fun. The 1st was a little disappointing as I rolled collapsing floor and poison gas as I was hoping for some combat. Almost all of my squad fell through the floor except for Torris. The 2nd game was much more fun as we had some combat against starving mutants which I used Mantic zombies for. Attelus Kaltos was MVP for that game as he didn't just slaughter three of the six mutants single-handed, but also managed to pass three out of five intelligence challenge dice (needing 8+ on 12-sided dice) to disarm the generator from overloading. Here are some pics.

Today - and every day since Monday last week - I have been reading the full rules for Star Wars Legion. They are an explanation of the basic game mechanics, followed by an alphabetized dictionary of game terms that are up-to-date prior to the release of the "Scum and Villainy" factions that began to drop this past summer. As I have no kits from those factions and am instead assembling Clone and Confederation of Independent Systems faction miniatures, I am fine.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Old news: I finished (for the moment) the newest plastic Battletech miniatures for my bespoke Inner Sphere force, about a month ago. I stopped at 24 miniatures (so six Lance packs) of the Catalyst Game Labs plastics. They have been great fun to paint as the sculpts are very nice updates with excellent detail that make painting very enjoyable. I am proud of the basing I have done for them, which includes tufts of "gamer grass" for the first time on any of my miniatures.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Newer news: I painted 10 Imperial Assault miniatures of the Rebel faction for a Star Grave crew. Not the greatest sculpts, but quite serviceable, and my schemes hew closely to the paint-schemes designed for those particular miniatures. On the paint-table I have 10 more, but of the Imperial faction.

Once I get the components of the Clone Wars Star Wars Legion starter-set constructed (to begin practicing the rules with friends) I will create a 3rd crew for Star Grave, using minis from the Scum and Villainy faction.

Fully painted "Rokkit Boy" from my Ork Commando KT squad.

Last time we played KT (about a month ago) this ork went on a killing spree. Every turn of the game he killed a Tau, some times also damaging others.
There's the running (partial) joke that my minis have to "earn thier paint".
Well Rokkit absolutely earned his!

I had my first game of Assassinorum: Execution Force in months. It was fun, a close one too. I used my Attelus mini in lieu of the Callidus Assassin. I I lost my Vindcare Assassin to a Chaos Marine in the Ritual room and things didn't go too well after that. But I managed to get through it with some tactics and lucky rolls. Then I had Attelus attack the Sorcerer. He missed his first attack which I re-rolled and managed to take off a wound. I then had Attelus lunge away with his free sprint after a melee attack which allowed him to fire his "auto pistol" and he managed to take off another wound with one six of 2d6 (which is sorta a loophole I found by playing the game for awhile now) Then the Eversor Assassin managed to finish off the Sorcerer. It was the 14th turn so if I was unlucky enough to draw the card to push the counter one space it would mean I lost. The Eversor had run out of Frezon tokens so if his attack had failed I would've had to use his self destruct. It was close lol

Quite a bit of priming, mostly my new Hero Forge minis I had 3d printed by these people in Auckland in black.

I also primed my resin Lelith and another 3d printed mini larger scale D&D samurai lady I got from those same people (she's a really, really lovely mini) Mechanicum standard grey; I plan to try out a new way of painting like colourless pale skin by building up layers from grey as the shade both minis show a lot of skin, so there's a lot to work with. I plan on practising with the D&D mini before working on the much rarer and more expensive Lelith. It will be interesting. Has anyone done something similar?

Anyway, wish me luck!

Xenithal highlighted my samurai chick mini with grey seer primer and began painting her properly. I'm pretty happy with how she looks, actually, and she's damn fun to paint. The colourless skin experiment worked out quite well!

Back on topic. Uhh a bit, began working on some of my new Hero Forge minis a new one of Anargrin, and one of the human-form of the werewolf Emilia and Wilom Anargrin's Hunter-apprentice from my novel series the Angaran Chronicles. Practising skin, mostly I hope to one day get all five of my five-man band done for the TT Skirmish game I was making a while back.

Also, more work on my Samurai chick mini.

More work on Anargrin, Emilia and Wilom. I'm very happy with how they're turning out. I realised as I was working on him, Wilom was my late mother's favourite character when she read my novel The Angaran Chronicles: The Underside (he was the one I least expected, lol). So, I'm trying to do a better job on him than I intended beforehand.
