New video is up! The first ever channel give-a-way to celebrate 150 subscribers. Thank you all for your support of an old fart trying to do something useful on these new-fangled internets. It's been a lot of fun for me and I hope to bring you a lot more interesting and entertaining videos in the future!

Drawing for the fabulous prize is next Saturday. (18th I think)






On the hobby side, I just finished building the "dog pack" for my Savage Wave war band (that's the red demon guys). I'm really, really excited about these models. Not only painting them but playing them as well. There are 4 dogs plush the alpha (the big one) as well as a special Oni that gives them all buffs (the alpha buffs them too). They're also not very costly point-wise, so in the now standard 100 point tournament list, I have 38 points to play with. At the moment, I'm thinking of taking the two small oni (actually onisho) that I've painted already... leaving me 5 points for gear and upgrades.



I've decided to paint them up like Riddick's jackal from the movie "Riddick". The ears aren't right on the models, but while I could custom build the ears... I just don't think it's worth the effort. Maybe on the alpha, we'll see.



In other news, Ben at Master Crafted Miniatures was kind enough to throw in a bunch of miscast bits with my last order. While I'll be using a lot of it as-is on my Oni bases (to represent them tearing through a temple), I was able to cobble together some of the bits Dr. Frankenstein-like and come up with a number of serviceable pieces... most of which will get painted and tossed into the "for Adepticon" pile of resources or given to new players to help get them started. The wall section and the little dudes I'm going to hang on to though... because they're especially cool. Thanks Ben.



Guess that's it for now. 'Till later...

Look forward to seeing how the dogs and bits come out with a splash of paint.

Well done on the channel.

I thought I'd post a pic for a change. Did a little how-to video on using spray cans like airbrushes, specifically using spray primers to do grey stone. Had this little guy as the subject. It's a spirit statue made by Mastercrafted Miniatures. Nothing fancy here... but a fun little bit of terrain (or objective), whatever you'd like. He's not as speckly to the eye as he appears here. For some reason the lights really make him look like he's got major spatter when that's not the case at all. The gradient looks quite good IRL.




I have hopes of getting some more interesting painting done, but at the moment the combination of low temps and high humidity are keeping me from getting things primed.

Stone effect looks good. The speckling helps give it that grainy look.

Thanks for commenting guys. Really nice to see so many old friends still watch the thread. We had an absolutely wonderful time, even though it took us nearly 5 hours to complete the first turn! Luckily the Eldar are really fast... so turn 1 was filled with combat. Even the Imperials had some fast or deep-striking units that took the battle to the alien scum!

So now the remaining boy is cranked up about 40k again and is pestering me to paint my long-stashed Eldar Iyanden wraith army. Are they legal anymore? I don't really care if they're good, but I would care if I couldn't field them.

Anyone lend a hand who still plays 40k??

Help me come back!!

You can still field Iyanden wraiths. They're not terrible, but they're not the best either. You're likely gonna want a minimum size battalion of Guardians or Dire Avengers or Rangers to fill out the army though.

You can run a (mostly) pure wraith army, with the only fleshy bits being the seers who lead them. But you are going to be shy on command points, which limits the shenanigans you can get up to. Adding a few warm bodies allows you to use a battalion, which will help fuel the trickery.

Not that you can’t cause a healthy amount of havoc just with seers and psychic powers

We did HT. Looking forward to Brian's next visit... hopefully with slightly less points per person so it takes us less than 5 hours to get through the first turn!


WANTED:

I'm wondering if anyone has a set of plastic wraithguard they're interested in parting with. Ideally new & unassembled... unpainted for sure. I'm looking for two groups of 5.
Also looking for a plastic wraithlord as above.
Lastly looking for Eldar rangers (15).

PM if you've got something.
Thanks.

8th edition 40K is ALL about the command points. End of story. You build armies around them.

Thanks to the generosity of a friend of mine, I have nearly everything I need. Just need to snag a bunch of rangers for my troops and I should be good to go!
