Are you doing a big fancy schmancy adpeticon display this year?


No just the charity army. I will have a booth though and need something to fill it so I am bringing back at least 3 of the big ones for a little reunion tour.

Schedule was too packed this year to fit anything in. I have two more I definitely want to do at some point. Hopefully next year.

Hey out there. I am back with this year's Adepticon charity raffle army, and this time it is Saim Hann. If you will be at Adepticon next week, be sure to pick up some raffle tickets to try and win. For two good causes - Disabled American Veterans, and the W.D Boyce Boyscout Council. Last year the army raised into the five digits and hopefully we can do that again.

As for Adepticon itself, I hope to post something when I get there with more information, but for now I will be in booth 57 in the vendor hall all weekend, so by all means stop by and say hello! Plans for the booth are pretty fun, with a little reunion tour of a few of the big displays and a couple other things.

Until then, safe travels to all of you going, looking forward to another fun weekend.

Thanks! Let me know if you are going next week.

Slick army! Definitely buying some raffle tickets at the con.

Also, I think we will be sharing a booth with you (I'll be along with the other Wreck Age guys) so looking forward to meeting in person!

Back home again in Indiana, and back to work! This year's Adepticon was, as always, better than the last. Sounds cliche, but trying new things and refining what I do, it is true.

Spoiler:




The booth was a big hit, and exactly what I had hoped for. Instead of playing or wandering around, having a set place people could come by and say hello and meet up. Got lots of "I have been coming for years and just now meeting you" so that was nice. Not really into the whole commercial look, so making it personal was fun. Couple of framed hardboard sheets painted like the walls, some random crap pulled from here and there in the house, and wrapped up in my clothes in the trunk made for a nice booth that was easy to set up. Plus had not had three displays there at once before, and people seemed to enjoy that. Still working on exactly what it will entail, but plan to come back bigger and more interesting with the booth next year.



My personal highlights:

- Getting carried by Greg Sparks in Contra 3

- Watching two grown men squeal upon seeing Smash TV and proceed to manhandle the thing to levels I hadn't seen before.

- Watching people stop in their tracks and smile seeing the displays. Then having a 30 minute conversation about whatever. That never gets old. Also small world sort of conversations.

- Getting to hang out with Alex of Ironheart Artisans. We rode up together, roomed together, and had our booths next to each other. He's one of those guys you wish you met sooner, and whether silly or serious the conversation was what I will miss the most from this year.

That about does it. Back to work, this year is going to be great! Lots of big armies on the way and warm weather coming means new backdrops as well. See you next time.



All set up and ready to open.



Let's see if she makes it the weekend...

Thanks for stopping by those I got to meet! Glad to finally meet RiTides and DarkTraveller. Was worth the trip just to put faces to their names.

I am back from the desert fortress of Gordrakk himself, and brought a whole bunch of other gitz! An Ironjawz army big enough to choke Mork.

It had been a minute since I've done yellow or the green boys, so a real treat. The new Orruk stuff is very well designed, lots of character and a pleasure to paint up. This summer is Fantasy throughout, mostly Age of Sigmar, and looking forward to getting into the other armies. Next will be Stormcast Eternals, digging into those as soon as I hit post. See you next time!

Fantastic army. I'm curious, how long do you reckon (Man hours) do you reckon a project like that takes you?

Thanks!

I don't really keep track of hours. I just paint when I can (darn life necessities and such at bay), some days that means a lot of hours some days it's little spurts,

But weeks are easy to see since I dont work on two things at once, and it was about 4 weeks ago since I sat down with it.

At this point it would take a 4 weeks to do one model, let alone an entire army. Great work!

1 month. wow. Do you batch paint the entire army? Or do you do it unit by unit?

These new AoS models are great. You did a great job as always. I recall a couple pages back a picture of stacked boxes containing a giant Ultramarine army. Any progress on that? Looks like you will be painting more models in that one project than I have my entire life.

Well I am doing it all day, and have been doing it for years. Don't beat yourself up!

It depends on what I am feeling and the army and the scheme. This one I did unit by unit. Some other I batch. It's very case by case.

That's going to be a super slow burn. Some of it was previously assembled and needs some heavy rework in areas. The Thunderhawks need broken down in areas and rebuilt. I am hoping to have a assembled vehilcle group shot and then all 9 land raiders plus a lot of similar sized forge world tanks as the first batch later in the year.

Here comes a doozy. Stormcast Eternals, pretty much double fisting the whole book. 30-60 of each foot unit, 24 bird cav, 4 star drakes and the exclusives among others. June is going to be pretty wild!

Ready to rumble! I didn't shed any blood this go round either. Little bonus.

Assembly went well. For the most part taking a whole stack of a unit, assembling the first box to learn it, then assembly lining the other 20-50 on the bench, bit at a time and batching by sprue.

Mold lines are a dream on these kits. Very few and usually in the same place each time.

This isn't the biggest army I have done in terms of model count, but it might be on the base to base footprint. Sitting over seven feet long.

Will need to pull out all my tricks to make the backdrop work for this army, and get it all well in frame and composed. Stay tuned for that. In the meantime, I am off to paint. Guessing around 20 hours each step!

Nice. Seems almost superfluous to be honest. Playing at that scale would be draining I would think.

Great Work as always, looking forward for more.

But one little thing freaks me out...the doll in the backround and that she rises her arms from one picture to the other....Poltergeist inc.?
