Moonknight and all the capes looking good Although no idea who the Hood is.
Be interesting to see how they work the multiple personalities, including Mr Knight, if that was indeed who appeared in the teaser.

I'd like to see what you do with the faerie contingent, but also cultists and monsters, and indeed the Veer-myn So basically, I'll wait and see what comes out the Gravencave...

Moon Knight looks great. I loved that book back in the day-- before Bill Sienkiewicz got all weird, he was a really good Neil Adams imitator, which suited the character really well.

Ah, the lovely witches. Yes, the 70s Adams vibe really suits the character.

Great work on Moon Knight and blade too. As for Moonstone... my vote is to finish the Goblins that you've already started first!

Well indeed. And yeah. Pesky goblins!

Interesting that you have very different tastes to the others! Goblins and witches seem to be most popular but I'll bear your vote in mind
So I'm trying to clear my backlog in the meantime. First up, the last 3 heroes for Forbidden Fortress:

Shugenja (elemental sorceress), Geisha and Enforcer.

Lots of experiments. Green highlights on orange, blossom on the parasol, and freehand tattoos.

Whilst I am not 100% on them I am, for the most part happy.
I've also been trudging away at my Veer-Myn for Deadzone. I HATE army painting. Never mind, they are finally coming together in all their rusty, ratty glory.

Stuck in the house with the kids today, waiting for PCR test results. Still, got some marking done and managed to take down Ronan the Accuser in the process.

Really testing scenario, as befits an end of campaign boss fight. Didn't help that we had Klyntar symbiotes (like Venom) flailing around at us as well.

Going to try to make some headway on my booknook, but the rats are gnawing away at me...

Yup lol. Got to stay sane somehow

This is a very project-y month, and I'm just plodding away with my Veer-myn for now:

The metals are now on over the rust - the idea is the higher status, the less rust - and so the next job is straps/pouches (khaki) then eyes/cables (red), claws/teeth (bone), fur/tail highlights, and finally finishing off glowy bubbly green goo. It's a long slog - I really find army painting soul-destroying - but breaking it down into chunks makes it a lot more bearable

The Book Nook is also primed in its various sections, and starting to come together (dodgy pic, sorry):

Need to assemble and paint the two sides separately (green shutters, off-white stone work) and then slide it all together, along with the mirrored backing and base insert for the water. That'll be... interesting.

And then, goblins and witches next... Honest Though I have just primed up all my Wrath of Angels stuff

High praise indeed from a master craftsman! Here's hoping ...
endtransmission wrote:The rusty rats look great so far. You're nearly there... keep going!

Cheers. They were a slog, but worth it.

So, indeed, here are all 24. A mix of DZ3 starter, a cheap box of the old figs and a promo.

I ended up doing yellow for the cables and turquoise for lenses, just popped better. Essentially, the more rust, the lower in rank they are.

Nightcrawlers (shooty grunts)

Night Stalkers (stabby runts)

Night Terrors (fast heavy/fast assault one is a rescue, one is not ... )

Nightmares (slow elite heavies; I freakin' love these, and want more).

Pack Leader (new resin DZ3 boxset leader, massive and lovely)

Progenitor and Brood Mother (leaders, very pleased to snag the old promo progenitor, need to print some rats for big momma)

Creeper and Volt Chaser (Creeper is a big kitbash with GS lower half, Volt Chaser is mini kitbash)

Maligni (specialists; new style, great models)

Rumbler and Spotter (slow mobile field artillery; need to kitbash another Rumbler with the alternate weapon and likewise another spotter). So, yes, that's quite enough of a horde for a skirmish game, barring a swarm of rats or two.

What else? Well, where there's rats, there's plague...

This Reaper Plague Doctor will be going into the Venice Book Nook, lurking in the shadows. I'd considered some deep red for the hood as a nod to Don't Look Now, given that I'm trying to get a few references in the one place, but the green just looked better.

And you didn't think I'd really take a break for Marvel, did you?

Baron Mordo - not a character I'm overly fond of in comics, but I'm a huge Chiwetel Ejiofor fan and love that the in-game sculpt is so close to his appearance in the MCU (so far ) I added the barrel because it just felt to fragile (plus ties it in with some of my other bases).

Lurking in the WIP section of the paint queue is The Ancient One - I can't believe that Marvel minis have become a palette cleanser > oh, and I have started on the witches and goblins, but nothing to show... Yet

That's a great set of mucky soace rats! Consistent, interesting and somewhat disgusting, what more can you ask for?

Mordo looks excellent too, and I 100% agree about Chiwetel, he does a superb job in that role (I have my issues with some of the action in the Doctor Strange movie, but the cast is perfection)

Love the plague doc, for a mini that reads as one colour at first glance, there's a nice amount of variety within that, and the sword is super.

Thanks on all counts. That was exactly what I wanted with my Space Skaven

I am so thrilled you like the Plague Doctor and his sword, I did try hard with it so that's much appreciated.

Yeah the pack leader is a cracking figure, and thanks for the feedback.
Ah! Bother!

Creepers are hackers, able to disable tech on the field, which makes them particularly good against Asterians (robot drones). Volt Chasers are Technorati (ha!), rats with bionic upgrades - so he's got a wee bionic eye.

Painting likely to be out of action this week: trying to get the broadband fixed (Thursday) which translates to emptied out man cave. Going to prime, as it's a little milder, and build, instead.

Despite being crammed into a tiny space surrounded with all hobby in boxes, I managed to tackle a couple more bits.

The Ancient One for MCP. I went hooded, not bald, athough I do like the gender-fluid sculpt that they created for the game. Enjoyable experiments with deep warm yellows.

It's surprising what you can do in a tiny corner.

Caught up with metropolis, one of my oldest and dearest brothers-in-nerd, whom I've not seen in over a year - indeed thanks to pandemic he'd not even met my youngest spawn - we even ran a gaming webstore for a couple of years in the early days of online shopping. Easy to forget, in this age of TTS, Discord and so forth, how important the human side of the hobby is. And because he is the devil himself, he got me the KS of Core Space: First Born for Xmas.

It's a whole lot of game, cos THAT'S what I need more of

On which note, I've decided that this is the year to make the grand pilgrimage to Warhammer World (and Mantic HQ) - again, was planned pre-pandemic with the elder spawn for July 2020 but I'm determined now to do it, and take both my boys - it's a beast of a drive at nearly 5 hrs each way, but doable with a sleep one-way: 3 hrs or so down to outside York on a Tuesday evening (wife doesn't work Wednesdays), morning drive to Nottingham, AM at Mantic, Lunch and PM at GW, drive back up with dinner en route back up.

Might get some Aeronautica progress done next. We'll see.

Thanks pal. Xwing 2.0 was an absolute travesty. Don't talk about it, you'll give me the rage. I find gw's attitude to AI frustrating also, specifically the lack of ready availablity of card decks. At least they've started including stat cards on the building instructions now.

Speaking of the said tiny spessplehns:

A little progress, and the addition of FW transfers.

Trying to decide if the storm eagles need anything ventrally... Perhaps a name? "Shadow" and "Umbra" both come on the sheet...

Ongoing broadband hell seems to finally being resolved, ish, so can start to put study together again. Have so far spent 4-5hrs punching tokens and building cardstock scenery for Core Space, and still not quite done. OTOH, managed to blag stuff for giveaway and the trading post expansion for myself...

Those Marine fliers are looking great, that Raven Guard scheme is really striking with the white transfers. Love what you did with the Ancient One too.

On the subject of printed rats, only thing to watch for with EmanG's models is that they can sometimes have some hollow voids in them that can cause cracking later. I've not printed any of his Skaven, but I had a couple of his goblins burst on me a while back for that reason.

I love your work on the Veer-myn. I got my son the starter set for Xmas. Combined with my Projectandora set, we have a pretty good start on a warband. Sadly, he doesn't enjoy the painting aspect of the hobby as much as I do, so we have a bunch of assembled and primed models sitting and gathering dust. Maybe once his spring vacation starts I can get him to start...

I'm jealous that you can visit both Mantic and GW. Being on the other side of the world poses and insurmountable obstacle for me.

That was one of the selling points to our original Necromunda groups, the setting up of all the cardboard terrain. I've seen it on the shelves at the local FLGS, but will have to live this one through Graven.

I struggled to identify some of the wall pieces for the map setups in the campaign and always ended up with slightly wonky layouts. Looking back, I wish I'd tried harder (or just gone with a gridded floor plan now I have the whiteboard table top). I was part of a beta playthrough day with the designers and it was an absolute blast to play.

The loot crate idea and the civilians wandering around were all really interesting design choices that just gave the whole thing some character. Looking forward to seeing Graven play

Well, I have a similar problem with my kids tbh. My current thinking is get the younger to drybrush the GCPS with a dark green for easy master chief style paint scheme.
In 30+ years of being a gamer, I've never made the pilgrimage, so really it's about time. Mind you, I've never made it to Japan either

I was part of a beta playthrough day with the designers and it was an absolute blast to play.

The loot crate idea and the civilians wandering around were all really interesting design choices that just gave the whole thing some character. Looking forward to seeing Graven play

Yeah the searchable terrain is ace. The new set has a gridded board which also makes the game much more accessible for younger spawn.

Little miss has been poorly (not the 'rona, just one of papa's other varied blessings) so not made masses of progress on the P&M front. I have, however, printed some more goodies, an experimental base of rats and Juggernaut for MCP also:

Not willing to pay £50 for Juggernaut, no matter how good he is in game. It's odd that I seem to be inadvertently making myself a set of Brotherhood simply by virtue of filling gaps on my 3d print bed The gaps existed as I was doing stuff for the little one:

Lovely crisp prints, really well designed. Kinda makes me wonder why more free ones aren't like that honestly, I'm such an ingrate.

Played the intro scenario for Core Space First Born, following the guide:

Whilst the skill tree is initially baffling, it's fairly easy to get grips with. The guide takes you logically with references into the rulebook at every step of the way. Also, the rulebook is laid out logically so everything's easy to find which is a bit of a novelty when a game has this much crunch.

One of the most entertaining, intuitive and terrifying aspects of the game is the Hostility tracker, where the danger increases not only every turn but the first time a shot is fired also (amongst other things), so there's a delightful tension.

And amazingly, we survived! The tip you get after the walkthrough of the first two turns is Don't Be a Hero and this is excellent advice - this is a game of finding stuff and running away like buggery. Definitely be playing more of this one It is undeniably fiddly but it's a rich setting with enormous amounts of content: as well as the 10-game campaign and all the downtime actions of trading, hiring new crew and tinkering with your ship, there's plenty of side missions and extra adventures available for download, along with campaign design and generators - and that's before you even get into purchasing expansions. It's a big universe out there

Nice to see it's not just me falling down a Marvel printing rabbit hole. a week ago it was 'oh, that's a cool 2002 movie Green Goblin mini!' and now I have most of the X-men on my desk, the Avengers in the printer right now and a rapidly growing pile of files from all over the place to fill out the collection (though I'll be damned if I can find more than one good Spidey floating around! ).

Is that C27's juggernaut, or someone else's that just looks similar?
