I'm sorry to hear that your memory card keeps failing Theo, that must be very frustrating. More bits? I wonder what can be done for your cards to stop corrupting.

Looking good, love the lights and rams. For cops I like a harpoon, good to jam folk up so you can run them down, but dropper weapons work a treat too. Sticking a boost or taking something built for nothing but speed can be good to get in front of awkward customers.

Sorry, just not feeling much lately and finishing more Gaslands terrain and stuff has slowed me down. Also still waiting on the Bushido stuff to arrive .

I found a model on Thingiverse last night that made me laugh and I had to print it. I’m considering reprinting it at twice the size because detail was damaged, though not too terribly, and make it a statue or terrain piece .

Picture is bad, but it’s two mark III space marines doing a ballet pose .

I was just going to put this in the hill of shame to paint in my next lifetime, but then I saw this months painting challenge is “The Long War”. Sometimes war can go on too long and you wind up with a couple Corporal Klingers who should be section 8’d right out of the military. I haven’t joined the competition, and probably won’t, but it’s just silliness that happened to all come together in my mind.

The big question is,”what army colors should they be in?”

1. One Purple and one yellow, striking colors, and it would be Dorn realizing its time to send the Emperor’s Children envoy back as he might be causing too much of a distraction.
2. Two Emperors Children traipsing through the dead on Istavaan
3. Two tactical marines training to be Assault marines flying through the air (I’m thinking Blood Angels here)
4. Your suggestions

The prodigal Brother has returned . Glad to have you back
Working face to face with patients and family at the hospital now I am GLAD to wear a mask at all times. It's like people don't know there's a pandemic going on. I have to ask everyone travel questions every day and I'm getting people going to all theHotspots in the USA because the hotel rates and costs are so cheap right now

As for Angry Marines, I actually thought about painting them in their Arch Nemesis colors (the Pretty Marines). Maybe I should do a diorama with them and then Angry Marines about to attack them . Truly the Long War.

I think it might. I have been taking things way too seriously lately, and just need the comic relief.

I started the printer just now. the 150% size will take 27hours to print. Hopefully all comes out well. I probably only needed to do 10-15%larger to make the print better, but if I'm going to make this a display or even just a desk piece, I'm going to double the time and get a good print.

So typical me, I saw something on the dinged shelf at Miniature Market a few weeks ago and started investigating it (Ragnarok: The Abyss by Osprey Games). I am in no way a Viking afficianato, I just think that time period/style is over done, but I like the spin on the game. You see the game is a skirmish game set after Ragnarok happens (well, maybe not the textbook Ragnarok). The Dragon escapes and devours the roots of the world tree causing it to topple over merging all the worlds. The Gods are all killed/shattered and their powers are loose. You play a warband battling for power and as you fight your group gains power and can unleash it during the game. Anyway MM didn't have the main rules in stock lately and just the dinged copies of the one expansion. They got some in last week when I picked up Frostgrave 2nd edition and I almost bought all three books of Ragnarok, but decided against it. I then regretted it when I got home and was about to order it, but got sidetracked. Today the core book and the first expansion went on sale at MM, so I wound up saving about $10 more and will pick all three books up later this week. Now to start planning out some prints for table decoration and find models to play with. ( Almost forgot I have all the Blood Rage models I can use ).

I really am enjoying the stuff Osprey has put out. Printing lots of Gaslands lately and just picked up second edition of Frostgrave as well. Theres also a few others they are putting out soon such as Gamma Wolves (Stompy Robot combat) and Oathmark (Warhammer battles style game).

Took today and tomorrow off to take care of some family stuff before opening my new office on Monday, so since I had to run out near Miniaturemarket anyway I figured I’d pick up my order and grabbed some frostgrave barbarians to use for Frostgrave and Ragnarok.

My Osprey shelf is getting larger and larger, and I don’t have a problem with it at all. The above picture is about $80 between the sale and the Abyss book having some cover blemishes.

Having remembered that I have the Blood Rage models too (after I forgot and bought the frostgrave barbarians ) means I should be well set for a while.

I know there have been some kickstarters and Patreons for Norse and Viking items, but Thingiverse really is bereft of choices and paying some of the crazy prices I’ve seen on the other .stl sites is not my jam .

Edit: Mail showed up

That’s all the September prereleases. (Doubling the size of the Minimoto clan),the core box of the Shiho clan and the Not-Lone Wolf and Cub model. Also a Robin character (the grey Pilgrim) that can be used in the Temple, Minimoto and Shiho clans. Replacement cards for the Ninjas including the Event Exclusive Bikou model.

I might start assembling and may even prime them tonight or in the morning. I have to decide if I’ll strip and repaint the Temple models I already had and the Minimoto models as well. I have one new Ninja not painted like the others, but I might be able to replicate it. The Temple models I could possibly also paint close enough to the others, but I don’t think I could match the Minimoto scheme.

Edit2: also started painting a Blood Rage model for Ragnarok, got pretty far, but still a lot of details to pick out.

I should not have done the loincloth in dark blue/grey . I’ll try and cover it later in browns.

I’ll prime tomorrow, got all the parts assembled. No where near as bad as Infinity or Malifaux parts, even with my fat fingers.

Those new Bushido figures look great, especially the ones in fur capes!

As for the blue loin cloth, just put lighter blues over the top and use the darker colour as the shadows; it'll look good. Too many browns in there can create a dull figure.

I went over it with brown already, dull colors work for me, makes it more realistic to me.

Well got the two ladies from this clan done, need to search the other clans for models to use. Might get double duty in Frostgrave as well.

Basing still needs to get done, but at least it’s tabletop to me.

Feels good to paint.

Thanks , I am definitely feeling the paint flow today. I didn’t want to do grey wolves, or a black and a white one like I’d seen painted for these, instead I went brown.

I have to touch up the mouth and a leg, but otherwise I’m pretty happy.

Also started working on the Executioner and the Heir.

Not very far yet, but far enough to realize the feet are wearing tabi socks , tried to cover up the skin tone now.

The heir will get blue clothes and the Executioner will have some sort of print on the lower portion of his clothes. The rest of the clan will have the greys and muted beige colors too.

Right behind you.

Jeeeeeeeeealous. Still waiting on mine here! Planning on copying the art for the wolves, since they're named it seems.

One comment on the browns--I'd darken up the fur so the rope 'collars' stand out a bit more, or highlight them up a bit more. They look to be blending into the fur a bit otherwise.

The grey Pilgrim.

Think Raider from Mortal Kombat, just with bewbz . She is a Ronin that can be fielded with Temple, Minimoto or Shiho Clans. Lightning for you, Lightning for you and lightning for you

Thanks Viterbi . Bushido has really great models and a fun game play mechanic. The sword over her shoulder is supposed to be a Naginata, or some form of Yari. Basically a polearm to chop the legs off of horses during a charge, or like a modified spear with a sword on the end. Extra reach with all the Killy parts still .

Also got the archer done. He isn’t sporting a Yumi, a great bow.

Supposedly knowing your own weakness makes you stronger

Well knowing I only had 3-4 more spaces for paint on the army painter rack and knowing how I tend to buy stuff on a whim means my weakness was not having extra space . So when I saw he design for the rack I already had had been improved on with “no-sag” bars to strengthen it I decided to reprint the rack and make it wider. The three wide only held 90 bottles, now I have space for 150 .

Seems like a trip to Miniaturemarket may be in order .
I have the 90 bottle rack in reserve should I need it.
The new rack fits perfectly from the shelf on the right to the drawers on the left as well .

I am now printing more GW paint pegboard racks. Unfortunately there is a support bar diagonally across the back of the pegboard to the left of the GW racks which blocks me . I may actually glue some directly to the pegboard where that bar is if I cannot figure something else out. After filling the racks I already printed on the GW stuff it seems I may need twice as many as I have already. I not due to a lack of paint that keeps the piles from getting done .

No painting progress. Issues at the new office and trying to get it up and running on the 5th of October are putting me behind. Nothing I can really do about it, but mentally this week took a toll. Now getting the house cleaned to possibly have grandma over, but the wife also just took our youngest to get tested for strep throat. Hopefully that’s all it is as she gets out a lot.

Also, just saw GCT is estocking the store over this weekend........Which Faction should I order next?
I like the idea behind the Ito Clan (Was a samurai clan, but have found a temple to a strange snake god and now people are turning into snakes and getting the blessings of oruchi)
I could continue on with my Temple and try to complete their faction, maybe some of the animal Monks.
Cult of Yurei has some neat options including the undead, I could make a "Kingdom" type army (Think The walking Dead in Fuedal Korea
The Syndicate could also be fun to build with all the Buto (Sumo) wrestlers and the circus style fighters and the gambling. Don't forget the gambling
I'm not really feeling the Jung Pirates even though the KS I just backed did have a Korean boat or two . Also the chance to do water type boards intrests me.
Prefecture of Ryu is a very bland sort of army in my mind, straight up military, they just have black powder weapons too.

I don't live near Gits, but one day I plan on getting in a couple games with him, and since he has Tengu and the Savage Wave I will steer clear of those.

Spoiler:
Breathe.......Breathe.....Breathe.....

Not having a baby, though the stress has been worse. Youngest (Lillian 15), came home not feeling great on Friday. Though she is prone to having Strep throat, they are the same symptoms as Covid. We took her to urgent care and they ran a quick strep test which came back negative. Unfortunately, hers always comes back negative but when the samples are sent to the lab they come back positive, but it takes a few days. That office didn’t see the need for a Covid Test since she hasn’t been around a confirmed case, but she works as a busser and hostess at a local restaurant, so who knows. So Sunday we took her again to get the Covid Test at a different location and they wondered why we hadn’t done it sooner . We had isolated to be sure, and I missed a day I couldn’t afford to setting up my new work office, and with a 2-4 day turn around I was looking at missing way too much time.

Luckily last night we got the negative result (which is good) . Weight should be lifted, but I only slept three hours or so and have been having panic attacks all night. Stupid stuff, like having dropped my car off for some repairs and an inspection, and having left paperwork in the car that I’ll need later this week. Not today but before Monday for sure . Then not remembering where I had left my work badge, which I had the brilliant idea of putting in my lunch bag so I wouldn’t lose it . I had never lost it before keeping it with my wallet, but I outdid myself. Dug through all my laundry twice and thinking I had left it in my car with the papers .

Anyway I’m up and can’t slow down my brain. My heart is going like someone hit me with adrenaline a couple times. Already sweating the day and my cats are staring at me wondering if I’ll be tasty soon.

Good Times.


The fun stuff.


One print/four pegboard arms and a bunch of dowels gives me two racks to hold the paint. I am liking these racks because it feels like I’m holding more paints, even though they take up about the same foot print on the wall. The biggest part is that the four arms take four hours to print and about the material of one of the other style GW prints. The other style prints took three hours each and only holds four paints. So even with needing to buy 7 dowels for a row, I thinking this will be much more economical of a space saver. My total space side to side that I can put the GW paints is 34”, just under 1 meter.

Also just above the leftmost section is a paint drying rack for 30mm bases. It has 5 rings to keep the bases from moving about if the desk is bumped. I think I’ll probably do a row of those across the top of the first layer of GW paints and then do a second shelf to hopefully hold the remainder of my collection of paints.

The closest FLGS is finally getting GW stuff back in “Soon”. They have been out since February or March and had sold all their stock off to Miniaturemarket during the Covid closure. Not sure what I will actually buy besides paint, but it and CCG were their major sources of income.
I have had a desire to build and buy a contingent of Palanite enforcers and Subjucators with a pair of Ambots as Breaching tools . Then I saw Git’s blog post with the Mechanicus dog riders and though I could build a mounted unit of officers , but it would be more just for fun than for any game......still.
