Jade Skorne: Part 4

Earlier this year was Aucklands largest Warmchine tournament, Ides Of March. Last year I had a lot of fun playing Skorne so decided to stick with that but add a new caster and some beasts.

Makeda 3 had recently been released and I was quite eager to paint her up since she comes with 2 immortal friends.

Naturally when you bring Makeda, you're gonna bring Molik Karn…

And these 2 reptile hounds were a lot of fun to paint. Tempted to get more but need to figure out how to make them work on the table better first.

I came away with 2nd best painted. The standard of all the armies was really great so I was lucky to get that. As for my gaming results… 38th out of 40. But I got 2 wins!…

Looking forward to next year. It will be Skorne again, and I really need to get my Mammoth done.

Big guns!

I've done a few batches of painting for Flames of War books this year, and here are some of my favourite items.

We also had a fun painting challenge at work. We gave ourselves the task of painting a tank from a training regiment in 12 hours. Was a fun afternnon/evening and there were some cool tanks that came out of it. The articles about it all are here (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4), and here are some more shots of my Ausbildungs Tiger I E.

Lastly, I pimped out a Jagdtiger for a painting guide showing some easy ways you can individualise your tank.

Back in the game!

Well to say it's been a while since I last did a blog post would be an understatement. It wasn't due to a lack of content, it just dropped off as a priority. But now I've got lots of stuff backed up that I'd like to take photos of, so it makes sense to blog about them too.

For the next little while I'll be posting things I've painted or worked on over the last year and a half. By the time I've caught up I should then have current projects I can show and hopefully not have a long break again, but no promises.

I'll start with some Iron Kingdoms RPG figures for my Character in a campaign we ran, which has since ended (we've moved on to DnD 5e).

These two were a lot of fun to paint, and I'm really glad with how well they match and look like a team. I discovered freehand isn't so daunting when you have a decent brush!

I have a few more figures to go along with these guys, and will eventually have my own party with 2 more characters and 1 more 'Jack.
