In a brief burst of motivation, I updated the basing of my ancient Imperial Guard force. The full collection is here. Goes to show that consistent basing can make even 30+ year old paint jobs look reasonable on the tabletop!
A few years ago the Dystopian Wars game system was shutting down and I stumbled upon a closing sale somewhere. So of course I bought everything that they had. After lots of time in the “to do” drawer, I worked up the energy to paint up this Prussian Empire force. Detailed pictures can be found here.
First experiment with Contrast Paints at Warmaster scale was a big success. The Lizardmen army joins the collection. Now I just need to wrap up the other half-dozen armies 🙂
Another warband joins the club. Classic paint scheme for some classic models. Full warband can be found here.
My Mordheim collection is slowly reaching completion. Lots of personas still to paint – and a few warbands – but it’s getting there. From the “core” warbands, I only need to finish the Amazons and Marienburgers. Add to this a few custom warbands (Wood Elves, Lizardmen, Dark Elves and Chaos Warriors). Plus lots of individual additions here and there. 360 models done, 148 left to go! At least nothing else is being released anymore (except that at current count I have to paint 200+ Warcry, Underworld and Cursed City models as the spiritual successor games to Mordheim :)).
The Adeptus Mechanicus was my last big unpainted army for EPIC, mostly because the list changed over the years which rendered many of the originally assembled models obsolete. But ultimately I overcame my own reservations, bought a few more models to fill in the list gaps, and finished the lot. The full army page can be found here. At this point, only the Titans and Knights are left to complete my EPIC collection. 70 models/bases to go but 2,400 models/bases are finished. Not bad!
Slowly finishing up the remaining Empire units. This big block of Flagellants is the last “big formation” on the list. Now it’s down to the special characters and the big items (e.g. new style griffons, etc.). The unit filler is based on the old War Altar with a more suitable Prophet of Doom riding it.
Starting a Blackstone Fortress campaign during the lockdown. Here are the heroes from the main boxed set. Baddies and expansions are under way.
A full page of EPIC Tyranids is now up here. They are painted in the same scheme as my Battlefleet Gothic Tyranid fleet. Only a couple of armies to go for a complete EPIC collection…
Painting the Blackstone Fortress gave me an appetite for small themed forces. And then I saw the Gellerpox video by Midwinter Minis so I dug up the models in my “drawers of shame” and banged them out.
