What a Wreck

Friday, February 27th, 2009

I created these wreck markers for my Warmachine Cygnar army using spare jack parts I ordered from the Privateer Press online store. There are 2 Heavy and 2 Light wreck markers for when my jacks take enough damage to be destroyed (like that ever happens).


I wanted to make them low enough profile so that you could stand other minis on them when needed, you can see that the top two have their parts ‘sunken in’. The bottom two aren’t sunken in as much, partly because I thought it would look better, and partly because it was taking too much time and effort (i.e. I am lazy), heh.

This was also my first attempt at ‘battle damage’ as seen on the leg.



My 2 Cents

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

I have just finished painting up 2 Cygnar Centurions. I started these a while back, but they sat around with just their basecoats for some time. It was an odd job to finish them up, as I have changed some of my techniques since, and it was weird meshing the two styles without totally repainting them. The metals, for example, are done in my old style with ink washes and Vallejo paints, but now I use Citadel washes and colours.

I felt it would be fun to post a pic of the Squire with his two bigger brothers :)

Also, I have created a painting log where I am tracking my completed projects and works in progress.




More Painting

Hey all! First off, Liz and I still do have plans to post the rest of our UK tour pics, not sure when, but they are coming. :)

I have been able to continue painting on a regular basis, along with playing a decent amount of games lately. My Warmachine league play has been a lot of fun, but I haven’t yet played as much 40K as I would like. Now that I have my Rhino completed (my first ever vehicle), I will try and get some more games in. Also, I have provided a quick pic of the station setup I use for taking pics.
