Thank you, Syro. I bought another starter kit once GW opened, so I have a few more to go. Going to keep the red/chapter going.

I'm trying to build a whole table worth of terrain. I don't have anywhere to play except on the kitchen or dining room table, and Mrs. DJJazzyJeff doesn't really like that.
Plus, not being able to go anywhere and play with anyone, I'm trying to build my own set up.

Go for it! It's not stealing if you have permission. A lot of stuff I found online, anyway.

Not much new to report, but I'm trying to get to 100 posts.

Base layered my entry for the monthly painting challenge. I really have to put the gas down on this one.



I have some more materials arriving in the mail. Some wood pieces to cut into Gaslands movement templates that should be here this weekend.
And some aquarium gravel filters to turn into walkways and bridges that won't get here until the end of June or beginning of July. Really? I guess they are a really non-essential item.

Going to spend some time today, so I'll post a real update later.

Scratch that, I just got a shipping notice. The gravel trays shipped today and will arrive between July 14 and August 4.

My guess is they handed them to a wandering hobo and he's walking them to me on foot.

I think the mechanic in the game is that exploded wrecks are removed from the table. I’ll have to go back and reread. I’m pretty sure the wrecked hills of cars in game are removed once hit, but terrain pieces that explode could be another matter.

It’s a good idea, though. Make some craters with bits of rubble sticking out. A jagged edge of tank here, an odd bit of pipe there.

Great work on the Gaslands car. I'm really impressed that you were able to scratch build three humans and a dang-on minigun. I've been watching and re-watching Fury Road the past week (if you can watch the Black and Chrome version, it's George Miller's favorite version of the movie and it really adds a whole new dimension to it) and all this Gaslands content is making me want to ride shiny and chrome.

I really like him, and he's the only old school mini I have. Well, almost. I do have some Catachan fighters and a few old space marines. I've said it before, but thanks again to MacPhail. I've always been an MTG player, and he's been super generous helping me get into the new hobby. Both of the aforementioned squads and the bagpiper were donations from him.

Anyway, progress has been made. I'm pretty happy with the bagpiper, just need to base him and I'm done.




The tartan is not perfect, but I think it's pretty good. I may touch it up later, but it's gonna have to be good enough for now.




I want a bright, meadow-like grass for him to be marching in. I'm picturing the Scottish Highlands. The only grass stuff I have right now is dry and brownish. I'll have to improvise. How does sawdust work as flocking/basing material? No idea what I'm doing here.

He's fabulous. Your green skin tone has great depth, the detail work on the eyes and kilt are excellent, and the base came out really well. He's a holdover from the days when this game didn't take itself quite as seriously, and you've done him justice. Nice job!

Also with making terrain out of the soda cans you can always tear/ cut up some cans to have the exploded versions and the metal will look like a proper gauge steel

Thank you. I worked really hard on him. That sounds weird to say, but it's true. Spent a lot of time hunched over my magnifying lens with a pointy brush in my hand.

Thanks. And exploded versions are a cool idea, but one that isn't really allowed in the rules. I reread them. If a collision occurs with a destructible obstacle, the obstacle is removed after the collision is resolved. A collision with an obstacle always counts as Head On, and the obstacle always "declares" a smash attack. Then, if it explodes, there is an additional attack against all vehicles within range. Then it's removed and the obstacle can't be collided with again.

Of course, the main rule that resolves all disputes is the Rule of Carnage. When in doubt, do the thing that will result in the most carnage for the greatest number of players. It's what the audience wants to see! So I suppose exploded wrecks of tanks as additional obstacles would be another level of carnage. Or a crater or blast radius could at the very least count as hazardous terrain.
Who needs rules anyway!

Thanks. I'm now looking through all the hotwheels cars whenever I go into a store. The trouble I'm having is armaments. There are websites out there where you can purchase scale guns, I just haven't pulled the trigger yet. The minigun I made is made of the insulation from an old coaxial television cable and some small strips of plastic. Also, a fair amount of superglue and a couple layers of skin off my fingertips.

Yeah, removing the terrain is just the easy way around it, great way to get beginners into a game. To me it's easy to house rule it though with the first explosion/collision doing full damage and any subsequent one doing less damage, but maybe a chance to catch fire. I love Gaslands. Now that I have my printer and more filament I can start printing containers/ gates and weapons.

That's one determined goblin... You have crammed a lot of nice and characterful details into this fellow, a definite thumbs up!

Gaslands vehicles are not bad either, although I'd have stayed with sheet material for modifications. Balancing between durability for game and staying believably true to scale on these small things is very had. Congratulations!

I've purchased a couple of start collecting sets from GW, as the price is pretty nice for the number of models. As such, I have developed a growing pile of chaos spawn.

I don't want a chaos army. I've never been one who likes the bad guys. Even the popular villains like Darth Vader, The Decepticons, Khan, even characters like Freddy Kruger. I've never been into them.
I fight for the users.

So, I decided to chop off some of their arms, etc. Some of the earlier pictures on this blog show severed limbs at the feet of my marines.

I'm taking it one step further with my Space Marine Captain. I want to make a diorama of scattered, defeated chaos corpses at his feet. But, I also want to play with him in my army. So I'm designing a removable 50mm base as part of the design. I'll also try and submit this to the June Dakka painting competition. As the pox walkers will be part of the base of the unit, I'm thinking they will literally be supporting him, therefore, in a supporting role.

The base still needs work, but this is a dry fit practice run at the idea:

Here is a question for the good of the order:

GW would frown, and insist it was against the rules, but what do you think about having a female Space Marines Librarian? Is there a code somewhere that doesn't allow it?

Hobby is hobby; do as thou wilt shall be the whole of thy law.

Especially with the female Stormcasts and new plastic Sisters power armor, you've got a lot of badass women to use as a basis without having to rely on third-party models (that in my opinion tend to stray a little too far on the cheesecake side of the spectrum, though to each their own).

I have a single plastic battle sister. I was thinking I’d clip off her holstered pistol, hang a force axe off her belt, and make her my librarian. I already have a whole fluff story about an aging librarian master taking pity on a young orphan girl and discovering a strong psychic ability in her. Plus I think my custom chapter red will look good on the Adeptus Sororitas armour.

Also, Amazing Turtles, I found this mini in an old Board game and thought of you. Not sure what I’m going to do with it.

Seeing that bear in the picture while I began reading about you converting a battle sister really had my imagination running wild
As for the bear, here are a few ideas:
1. If you have any interest in getting into D&D or other fantasy miniature games the bear could come in handy.
2. Start a small rogue trader attachment? I could totally see one of them having a bear in their retinue of bodyguards. You might want to convert it to have some bionics in that case.
3. Just save it while waiting for inspiration, give it to a friend, research where it's from, sell it, etc.
4. Go with what I originally thought you were doing. Take a plastic sister of battle and convert her into a bear rider

I'm heading out of town to visit the in-laws. It's their 60th wedding anniversary on July 2nd. They said they only want the family to all get together. So, the wife, the youngest kid and I are bundling into the car for a road trip.
Not a whole lot of progress to report, but I have some things in the works so I thought I'd post an update. Give you all some idea of the projects that are piling up on my bench. In addition to what you see here, I glued together 13 other space marines, and am considering arm and weapons options for my Sister Librarian.

I'm not taking my hobby stuff, but will spend the next couple of weeks fishing, kayaking, boating, swimming, and drinking on a river up near the Great Lakes. Cheers, everyone.
