My happy place.

Hello all,

Welcome to my blog

I'll make this short and sweet: I really would like commentary.

I also track my progress in terms of how many models I complete throughout the year.

----------------------------( Edited first post)--------------------------------------------

Vive la revolution comrades!

2020 was a hell year for all of us, for multiple reasons. As of the time of writing, the year was one of the worst for me on a personal level in quite a long time. That said, there were also some highs, so its not all gloom.

With that said, and a month and 10 days in , I'm opening my 2021 blog here on DakkaDakka. My initial goal for this year is 365 miniatures equivalency, as per usual.

To stand testament to my progress, my tracker and self imposed rules are below, to be edited as necessary.

1Wargamers Challenge 2021 = 155 main scales

Rules:

Main scales are 1/72 and 28mm
Smalls encompasses anything smaller plus starships
Standard infantry count as one for painting
Cavalry count as two for painting
ogre sized models count as two for painting
Monsters count as anywhere between 3-10, depending on size (see below)
Chariots count as 5 for painting
Transports count as 5
Battle Tanks count as 5
Behemoths for AoS start out at 5, more if justified.
Fliers/aircraft count as 5-10 depending on size (see below)
Larger models determined on a case by case basis
Primaris Marines count as ogre sized
Onager Dunecrawler = will count as 6 for painting due to base

Good looking Imperials! Gaudy, and great yellows! Pink and Yellow is an underrated combo. Would I be right to assume that you actually undercoated the yellow with pink as well? It's a very warm life-like yellow.

Cool to see your 2021 blog, I really liked your Persian project. Looks like some similar bright colors are being brought to bear on your Empire and I'm way into it. Marienburg?

Thanks for sticking around. the Persian project will be folded into this thread, as I am nowhere near done with them yet. not marienburg. magenta and yellow is ostermark. Yellow and black is Averland. Other units will be forthcoming.

Neat! I hadn't seen that kit before, really fits that steam-powered Empire tech aesthetic.

I have two boxes of the new french partisans, and no plans for them. So I started a cult.

Can't remember how many times I've started a cult due to lack of anything better to do. Yet to recruit a single follower though.

Really cool conversions, those would work in a variety of systems, I like the potential for a pulp-era skirmish warband.

The regular kit by itself is great for pulp era gaming.

I've been watching Horatio Hornblower all week. Therefore I figured my cities of sigmar army could probably use some naval action.

I went to the drawing board of wacky ideas and this is the work in progress result. And yes the navigator is a celestial wizard.

I laughed out loud when I saw the navigator. How characterful and fun! Cool to see you drawing from the steampunk well.

The airship and its crew are brilliant, both in concept and execution. If I have one suggestion, it would be to festoon the Eisenkern armor with lots of old-timey pouches and bags.
