Title: The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club ...
Post by: GamesPoet on August 10, 2020, 06:47:44 PM
Welcome to ... The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club!

As the last couple weeks concluded for the "100 Days of Hobby 2020" project here on W-E, I had been contemplating what kind of thread to create, and hopefully keep some of the hobby momentum flowing from that joint project that Artoban, Realjuan, Padre, Rowsdower, Midaski, Zygmund, SKS, Novogord, and GP did during the spring and summer of 2020.

And from one of Novogrod's posts it was mentioned he was hoping to keep it up to give himself more hobby time.  It was then that it occurred to me to have this thread where folks can join if they'd like, and keep track of doing some hobbying for at least 3 days per week.  SKS and Novogrod had signed on to do 3 days per week during the 100 Days of Hobby for 2020, and sometimes they did more.  Zygmund signed on to do 5 days per week which was also great!

The idea for this "The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club" is for folks to keep track of doing hobbying at least 3 days per week.  Folks can do as much beyond the 3 days if they choose, and we will feature those folks on the list too.  However, all that folks have to do for being listed at the end of the week is a minimum of 3 days per week.  So report in as you do a day with some hobbying, we will track it, and the end of the week list we will only include those who have three days or more duirng the previous week.

Also, if you go on vacation for a week or two to go boating, canoeing, camping, fishing, golfing, hiking, kayaking or whatever your heart desires in the way of other hobbying, as long as ya do it for 3 days during your vacation, we won't kick you out of the club here either. :icon_wink: :icon_lol:

By the way ... a week goes from Sunday and across the five days of the week to Saturday.  Folks have 7 days per week to get in only 3 days of hobbying.  All ya have to do is let us know that you're joining the fun, do 3 days of hobbying per week, and post on the thread about what you've been doing on the days you've been hobbying. :icon_idea: :icon_mrgreen:

(GP ... I hope you haven't created a monster here!)

Lol ... well we shall see ...

It is already Monday, and although yesterday I took the day off after the "100 Days of Hobby 2020" project came to it's conclusion, I have been chomping at the bit to get started with some hobbying today.

And I have started off this project with some fluff review and revising for my home brew Empire town in Averland, and my home brew Knightly Order called "The Knights of The Aver River".  And after all these years since 2008, I have finally given the town a name ... it is called the town of Verborgenburg, meaning "hidden castle".  There is more, but I'll save that all for a fluff thread of some kind.

And there is already a wee bit of fluff on "The Knights of the Aver River" that can now be found on the "Poll" thread in the Elector's Forum on the number of Empire Knightly Orders that folks have in their collections ...

3 days is A LOT because, life.

BUT - Day 1 - my son collects Space Wolves, but wants yellow marines now instead.  So we came up with Imperial Wolves chapter (Iron Fist yellow Space Wolves).  Most of it is unpainted, but he has 3 units he bought that are really well done.  So now my Indomitus Primus marines will swap 1 for 1 and suddenly I now have a small Space Wolves force instead of Howling Griffons.  sigh.  Anyways, started assembling and priming 5 man Aggressors and the Judicar.  Also 1 of the Necron Destroyers on stilts, they are badass.  Over-all I'm nervous working with the Necrons, the plastic bits are very delicate on those sculpts and my fingers/hands are not as nimble as they once were.

Tonight I'm thinking of kitbashing another Ork Madboy.  Also, apparently I need to re-paint my looted 3rd edition Landraider and retrofit it back to Imperial Wolf standard.  Kid will have to pay for that somehow he ain't getting that for free.  Oh, and I am priming a razorback/rhino for eventual yellow too. 

That's a huge busy hobby week for me.  but then I work really really really slow.

Yes, 3 days in 7 could be tricky for some.  Compared to coming off doing 7 days a week for just over 14 weeks in a row, perhaps my view is a bit off.  Although it is ok to even just do a small bit of something to get hobbying in for a day, because this isn't intended for folks to stress about.  Instead this thread is intended for those interested in keeping hobby momentum moving forward on a regular to semi-regular basis.

Also, if someone misses a week, or only gets in a day or two, life goes on, folks can always just climb back in the next week and keep going.  We realize that sometimes it just isn't going to be possible for some folks.  There could be an emergency situation that just preclude someone from partaking in the fun, and we will understand.

Picked up corax white primer. Hit the shadow warriors. Finished assembling my evocators. I really like these models. My chamber includes an ally of the excelsior war priest plus 50 flagellants which gives me 2370 points. Really like the theme and a squad of 5 sequitors will round out the missing 130 points to give me my goal of 2500.
After that the warcry will give me some chaos units and when I add in the 12 Ralpartha trolls to sub as chaos trolls, they will round out as 2500 as well.
Only my elves and Tzeentch armies will remain in the wfb garb and they may stay there. Iíll see when I get that far.
New armies will be an ogre maw tribe and the new lumineth although Iím not a big fan of the beast elves. The rest are really nice sculpts.

I'm in, if you'll have me.

I have been very busy on the hobby front tonight, to the point of needing to stop because I was going dizzy! (The heat isn't helping either.)

I have begin the process of doing the next campaign battle, but with the two players playing it remotely! I had thought there would be a delay in this as I would need to pick up figures from one player, but this is a different, simultaneous battle which used my figures on both sides! Simple!

Yesterday I made a new 'sky' (a massive polystrene sheet my neighbour let me have from some packaging, covered in an ironed blue sheet and sewn at the back!)

This evening I sorted army lists for the two players (one using a player force, the other a player volunteering to command an NPC force). I decided if I was gonna get the forces out I might as well send visual aids for the players to help them plan their deployment. The skaven (who have no machines of war for campaign reasons that will come out in the story) are to assault a much weaker force in a stone walled city (Ravola). I have set up the walls and tomorrow will send out pics of the tabletop. We're gonna try some 'techniques' in play, including character's eyes views during play, plus receiving reports from lieutenants etc.

The 'good' guys ...

That is only part of the Skaven army, but that's the part involved in this assault. I can't say what all the others are up to!

Happy to hear that! I do paint tabletop miniatures, but don't like to limit myself to one scale. My hobbying usually consists of a wild mixture of tabletop miniatures, busts, base-building and scenery, sometimes for painting contests, sometimes just for fun.

Had to go through and modify the assault rules we use (incorporating decisions and modifications we made during the last such game). That took ages. We like to tweak the rules for the better as we proceed, and learn more about the situations that arise, the problems that crop up, or the opportunities we should really incorporate.

It has been very humid here.  Just got up very early and couldn't sleep.  So I pulled out all the scenery sprues from the main and initial Warcry starter box set, filled up large storage bin full of soap and water, and gave the sprues a dunking fro cleaning.  It is a small item, but it's another hobby thing in the books, and another day getting something in this week.  That is 3 out 4 days already for me. :icon_cool:

Yes there is some control over pic dimension - maximums are set for the site as a whole, so that images remain within the post width.

However other 'edits' such as cropping or (I think they call them) filters are best done on your PC or device before you upload to your image host.

You could 'crop' the blank area above her hairdo, and a bit off the right margin - less background, more figure.

I've been a busy little bee so far. Day 2 saw more basecoating of models, a pretty wide selection. Day 3 I've been adding some details to older dwarf models and bringing them up to my modern standard.

Also nice to have you aboard TaraGreen! Welcome to the forum!

The hundred days thing was a little much, but 3 days a week?  That I can manage.   :happy:

Monday I oversaw the Battle of Blood Gorge, between pillaging orcs who were headed home and the pursing Empire army.  I write game rules for my gaming group and I've been wanting to playtest my latest edits, so two of my friends came over and took command of the armies while I answered questions, made notes on my own inconsistencies, and delighted in the carnage.  =D  Seven turns saw a bloody mess on the field, with the Empire Halberdiers routed and the Pistoliers fleeing in shame (without losing a single man!) but the orcs paying a heavy price in blood and losing all of their trolls (and nearly their shaman...but that was solely due to his own fondness for exploring the Miscast chart).  We totaled VPs at the end of the engagement and in a 2,100 point game there was a difference of...71 points.  A very solid draw. 

And today I kept up work on painting projects.  Currently I'm cleaning up my painting shelf and clearing out some metal minis - I'm working on Boris Todbringer, two Imperial dwarf war machine crewman (one Averlander, one Middenlander), a wizard, a paladin, and the standard bearer for my Middenheim Greatswords.  The Paladin got her last bit of paint and has moved over to the varnishing shelf, but everyone else still has work to be done on them.  Once these guys are out of the way I'll be painting up a giant for my Greenskins, then probably priming and painting some skeletal archers.

So that's 2 days down and more to follow.

Looks like a good start.  With 4 days of the 1st week done, we have 5 of 9 folks in the 3 category already, and 3 days to go in front of us.  Only Novogrod hasn't reported at all, Artoban and Michel are down with two, and Dihenydd has one, and waiting for SKS on vacation.

Today will be my fourth day ... I'm going to do a little bit of map drawing and encounter producing at lunch time for another role playing session with the nephews this evening.  So prepping 4 Day and 5 Day or more categories for week one's tally below.  Can't imagine I won't hit at least 5 days for the week with Saturday in front of us. Maybe even 6.

Updating ...

Founding Club Members so far ... those who joined the first week and must have at least three days this week to be considered founding members ... GP, Artoban, Dihenydd, Padre, Gankom, Novogrod, TaraGreen, Michael W, Midaski, ...

... and we'll make an exception for SKS if he decides to join, since he is away this week on vacation, although might be hobbying anyway. :icon_wink: :icon_cool:

The 1st Week's Tally Continues ...

1 Day ... Dihenydd
2 Days ... Artoban, Michael

Play by e-mail game has begun!

As well as the pics I will use in the story report, I have to do Game-Play pics like this so that the players know their options!

(eg) Perette needs to decide who to use her fire magic on ...

I decided to re-introduce my lunch hour hobby time at work.  I can get a solid 45 min of work while avoiding co-workers.  I love having a reason to close my office door but my VP has already commented on my hobby tray on the shelf behind my desk.

Hopefully i will have something to report for tomorrow.

No shooting tent or tripod yet, but I managed to progress the daemonette. Still WIP and a lot of work on the metal parts to do though.

More work done today (which is kind of easy when the painting table is next to my computer...all hail remote work!).  Finished two dwarf crewmen and the wizard.  Standard bearer still needs some script and probably a final highlight on his banner.  Boris has a LOT of feathers, but I finished his gold and leather, so he's closer to done than I feel like he is.  Oh, and I'm terrified that I'm thinking about how to do a regiment of Imperial dwarfs.

Roleplaying story update ... I will add some info from the other thread so those newer to the story have a clue as to what is going on here.

Have some of my nephews playing the 4 player characters all 2nd level ... a human fighter, a human ranger, a dark elf assassin, a halfling thief.  They are located inside a walled citystate that I have located on the coast somewhere south of Tobaro in Tilea.

Background from previous sessions: fighter(former soldier knows gate guards at North Gate) & ranger (former clothier trained by his parents who also have pet ravens) know each other from around town in the Clothier's District, while the dark elf has gone AWOL from former mercenary unit, and the halfling has left the family "business" based in the slum district.  They are at an inn near North Gate, and go outside to see military units (including dark elf Merc. unit) marching into the city.  Halfling ends up hearing a scream, and seeing a guy in yellow hooded cloak drop from a second story, and the party starts to chase, but the dude gets across the line of soldiers and the party gives up (end of session 1).  Party goes back to where the crime was committed, and runs into guards investigating from the Postern Gate.  This doesn't get far except trading some minimal info.  They crisscross the district making a stop at North Gate again, then back to crime site, where they go inside, and are able to locate the lady that screamed, and her merchant husband, the latter had his business book stolen by the thief in the yellow hooded cloak.  They go out and go across the district again, but run into the clanging sound of a sewer grate.  They investigate and muddle around in getting down into the sewer system (end of session 2).

So tonight ...

The party moves into the east to west sewer line heading in the direction of a heat source in the east.  They come to an intersection of sewer lines, and proceed to follow the heat source seen by the dark elf way down the north south line.  This sewer line has 2 1/2 foot wide ledges on both sides, and they walk south, and down the western side.  They run into another intersection, and continue proceeding south while beginning to see a greenish glow to the south as they walk.  Halfling leads slightly ahead of party with successful move silently, assassin short distance behind, and the two others further back a bit ready their missile weapons.  Halfling hears a human voice, and some other screechy voice. Gets to corner to see two dudes carrying a chest, and the yellow hooded dude shaking hands with a ratnoid (think skaven) with a greenish glowing globe on his back, and a mean looking pistol with a tube into the globe, and holding a book.  Behind the ratnoid is a rat ogre, two large ratnoids, and a bunch of smaller ratnoids behind them.  The party decides to beat a retreat, but the yellow hooded dude gets a good roll, and so does the ratnoid with the pistol.  The former orders his men wiht the chest away, and follows them.  The latter orders the rat ogre to charge, and then the two larger ratnoids to charge, while he begins to arm his pistol.  The fighter fires his arquebus, misses. Ranger fires two bow shots, one hits the rat ogre.  Everyone is then in motion.  Halfling flings a shuriken at the ratnoid aiming for the globe on his back, and gets a hit!  The globe starts emiting sparks, stuns the crud out of the ratnoid with the pistol, but the ogre keeps charging, as do the other ratnoids.  The party begins a fighting retreat, firing, and preparing for the rat ogre possibly reaching them, as it barrels over the edge into the water and up the other side.

Stay tuned for next week's exciting conclusion to the encounter! :icon_mrgreen:

We are STH for the local pro soccer team in Canada.  We have been missing the excitement of watching live soccer all year.  Last night the Canadian League finally started their own season mini-tournament in a bubble location on the East Coast.  We played our most hated rivals in the Season Opener and the match was very physical with an eventual score of 2-2, a fair result.

Why is this important?  Because I spent 2 hours with my 11 y.o. working on his SM Imperial Wolves army while watching the match (he's a big fan too).  We finished assembling, and primed and base coated an aggressor squad and captain.  We are using the Contrast Yellow paints.  What a difference those make.  I used to hate anything to do with yellow.  But contrast paint and 3-4 layers of light drybrushing gives the best looking yellow figures I've ever done.  And its easy, which I admit really appeals to me.  A small bit of painting on the weapons, icons etc and these look like they were painted by a far better skilled person than I.

if? Ofcourse I'll join and eventhough I did not do any "real" hobbying in my vacation I did manage to read through 2 Psychic Awakening books and a bit in a White Dwarf, on Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Got back yesterday morning (friday) and even went to the shop to pick up my order of Easy to Build Aggressors and easy to Build Lord Felthius (alternate Lord of contagion build) with his tainted cohort (3 Blightlord terminators) as those kits are going out of production and I really wanted them .. just before the vacation managed to grab a easy to build Plague Marines (3 of them) also so happy to get those unigue sculpts atleast!

Dun, Dun, Dun

Yesterday Midaski played a game.!!!!!

A starter trial run of a skirmish game with no1 son. We both had matching 'warbands', so we could experiment.
Ebbed and flowed, but I went down fighting.

So today chores and family have not allowed a full game, but we have both selected our different warbands lists and are ready to go tomorrow and we have further explored the rules so we can hopefully run a short campaign with 2 or maybe 3 games.
So another 2 days this week and hopefully set for 2 days next week already.

After travelling for about 6 hours, I wasn't able to do very much today. Did some research on freckles, skin variation and different light situations to add more details to the daemonette next week.

As the mini is too fragile to transport it in the small travel bag I have with me, progressing Papa Smurf will be the goal for the next few days.

Well, I finished the Middenheim Greatsword Standard and Boris...except for his shield.  I'll have to find one for him. 

I was going to move on to a giant for my Greenskins, but I'm painting him with very pale flesh and, as it turns out, my Pallid Wych Flesh is shot.  So until I make it over the FLGS, it's other projects.  But that's a good thing - I've had a 40k Landspeeder sitting around for ages and I've been doing anything to avoid painting it.  So it finally got its main hull coat (green, as my Marines are Salamanders) and it's due for more attention.  I also started another been-dodging-it-for-literally-years project - the Birdmen of Catrazza.  The unit is primed, flesh is painted, and clothes have their first coat, so they're coming along nicely.  Still don't really see a point to the unit but, hey, they look cool, and that's really priority number one in Tilea.

Ripped off the vanguards arms 3 times this morning. Finally got the right ones on. The bad new is that there are 9 more to go. 😹

Mids mentioned proof so here it is. The shadow warriors were done awhile ago. The evocators in back and the damnable 1st vanguard started yesterday and still not finished. After they are done, that should give me enough to start a new round of painting.

The Trebuchet has directly hit 4 times out of 5 so far. Taking out between 13 and 20 ratmen every time! It has a 1 in three chance of direct hitting, and a simultaneous 1 in 6 chance of misfiring and yet it has hit directly 4 times out of 5!

I have been terrified the Skaven player will think I am fudging rolls to mess with his head! It is 'Play by E-mail', and they're trusting me to roll. I know there are various roll generators out there, but I really don't need any more complications in this very, very time consuming process! All I need is the players to trust me. And they do! The fact that as GM I favour no-one (I want them both to win! And Perette is cool, and Lord Urlak is great.)

Baron Garoy is somewhat hard pressed ...

(https://i.imgur.com/xZXGNPh.jpg)

Lord Urlak is more than annoyed at Perette, whos fire magic has rivaled the trebuchet in deadly effectiveness! It does help that he does not care how many of his servants die!

@Artobans Ghost: I hate everything that has to do with glue and removing mould lines. If I could skip that part of the hobby, I would. A friend of mine spends hours with removing mould lines. In fact, I think I have never seen him painting anything. Maybe I should hire him.  :icon_lol:


Looks like I won't be able to continue painting the bust tomorrow. My fluorescent colours are at home. I forgot to take them with me.  :eusa_wall:
Already asked the local hobby shop owner if he has them. Unfortunately, the answer is no.

Had a chance to do a little gaming today with my group!  Napoleonics, French vs. British.  The battle ended up being lengthwise down the table, instead of across it, so a narrow field, which definitely favored the British - the French are poorer quality troops and their only advantage is speed, which they normally use to throw most of their forces against only part of the English line.  It was hard-fought on both sides, with the French sending a battalion across a bridge twice to be shot up by the British on both occasions before reinforcing units came in and drove the British back but were, in turn, repulsed by a battery of 6-lb cannon firing canister at about 75 yards.  The British right flank held tightly on to their occupied town while their cavalry attacked in the center but were in turn repulsed and chased by French infantry and dragoons, who themselves were then halted by Portuguese reinforcements.

The battle's end saw the French fighting for one flank and trying to reform with a few companies in the center, while the British right still had two entire battalions (almost half the British total force on the field) facing off against a single French battalion.  Had the British advanced, they might have turned the French flank, but it wouldn't be easy - the French artillery was well-positioned and is quite potent.

Still, a fun game all around and looking forward to next Sunday.  We'll probably do a little more of a scenario battle next time, and might see about fielding Austrians instead of (or in addition to?) British.

Got in some reading of the 9th edition core book this morning, so far only fluff, but I'm sure SKS will appreciate that. :icon_wink: :::cheers:::

I'm enjoying it, not sure how much of a change this book is to the previous, because I haven't played 40K since 5th edition.  However, there seems to be a good effort to it's over all design and artwork.  I enjoyed the fold out map, too!

Did post game book-keeping (casualty recovery points totals etc) today, ready for moving the campaign on tomorrow evening. Then I have the huge report to write up, over the next days, plus I think a there are a couple of extra pics I might need, which will take some setting up. Such a busy hobby at times!

Took a closer look at the scenery sprues for the Warcry starter set.  This is a project I am looking forward to doing, and hopefully relatively soon.

Here is a link to my review of those sprues ...

Got a little more paint on some minis today - Boris' shield is mostly done (needs final highlights), and I started highlights on the landspeeder hull.  Oh, and I've nearly finished a little Reaper mini for an NPC in my D&D campaign - just have to do his cloak.  The Birdmen are now wearing pants, too, so I guess that's a good thing.

I also put in some time going over my Napoleonics rules and editing combat and combat resolution rules to make things flow a little more smoothly, especially when a unit hits only part of an enemy in line.  It was the only point of "huh?" during Sunday's game and I don't like those moments.

Week 2
Sunday 16th August:
-Finished the Intercessors Squad to battle-ready standard for Benthe
-Build up the 3 Death Guard Plague Marines from the Easy-to-build set
Monday 17th August:
-Painted some more on my Fire Warriors.. doing all their armour at the moment in a first layer, after that need to put on the 2nd camouflage color, this stage is tedious and long but once done it's only a small ways to go to finish the models

Began a closer look at the Warcry rules this morning.  I got curious regarding  all the terrain set ups shown in the back of the book, while also reading the fluff up front.  It is based in quite the bleak world.  Also noticed there styles of play, open, matched, narrative.

Well, I finished the Middenheim Greatsword Standard and Boris...except for his shield.  I'll have to find one for him. 

I was going to move on to a giant for my Greenskins, but I'm painting him with very pale flesh and, as it turns out, my Pallid Wych Flesh is shot.  So until I make it over the FLGS, it's other projects.  But that's a good thing - I've had a 40k Landspeeder sitting around for ages and I've been doing anything to avoid painting it.  So it finally got its main hull coat (green, as my Marines are Salamanders) and it's due for more attention.  I also started another been-dodging-it-for-literally-years project - the Birdmen of Catrazza.  The unit is primed, flesh is painted, and clothes have their first coat, so they're coming along nicely.  Still don't really see a point to the unit but, hey, they look cool, and that's really priority number one in Tilea.
Was looking for your post on the Napoleon game and found this again.  I here ya on things like the giant, landspeeder, and birdmen.  I have so many projects started and not completed, although during the 100 Days of Hobby 2020 project I started gettign more paint on more thigns and moving them along.  I am enjoying going bakc to the older projects and getting them closer to completion.

Got a little more paint on some minis today - Boris' shield is mostly done (needs final highlights), and I started highlights on the landspeeder hull.  Oh, and I've nearly finished a little Reaper mini for an NPC in my D&D campaign - just have to do his cloak.  The Birdmen are now wearing pants, too, so I guess that's a good thing.

Good w'end (for me) for hobby.

Saturday AM, watched Galaxy Quest with son #2 and finished his new Rhino for the Imperial Wolves.

Sunday AM, watched my soccer club beat Winnipeg with son #1 and dragged his Tau out.  He primed a bunch of Firewarriors and I assembled random bits of the Necrons from Indomitus.

Good solid 4-5 hours of hobby time!

Yeah, at the start of the battle you draw cards with the terrain setup, the setup of your forces, twists and victory conditions.
This can create a nice variation in the game you play, this is one of the thing I really like.
The only thing I don't like is that the warriors don't evolve or grown in their roll, like in Mordheim.

My sense is that this is already helping me maintain some flow and momentum with the hobby, and I am enthusiastic about how I'm getting stuff done, even though I move from one idea to the next.  I also need to create some sort of "To Do" list soon as well.  Thinking I will go back to the one from the 100 Days of Hobby 2020 project, delete all the reference to items that have been accomplished, add what has been accomplished from the start of this "At Least 3 Days" thread here, and then perhaps add a few items as well.

The only thing I don't like is that the warriors don't evolve or grown in their roll, like in Mordheim.
If I recall, using those cards is for open and matched play?  Believe the narrative play scenarios already provide some if not all of that info.  Although suspect a person could create there own narrative options and the cards could come in handy for that as well.

And I vaguely recall something about the narrative play that provides for the forces changing in composition, getting new items to be carried and used by your warband or leader, that kind of thing.  Although this isn't like Mordheim, it does provide some sort of changing and transforming aspect to the narrative play.  However, I need to go back and read this in more detail to be sure I understand better.

Also, I've been providing more info in the Warcry thread located in the "Skirmish & Warband" section of W-E.

So the rules being used for Napoleonics are your own?  And explain what you mean by the issue of a unit only hitting part of a line, I'm curious.

Yeah, the guy who hosts my gaming group has a lot of Napoleonic figures but I'd never seen them off the shelves.  We talked about rulesets and he complained that Napoleonic rule systems are (generally) complex and long, and we'd have a hard time getting our gaming group to explore them.  So I did a lot of reading and eventually took a system I wrote for playing Crusades games and modified it for Napoleonics.  It works...surprisingly well, for how simple it is.  And the game is scaled appropriately for base size, range and speed, so you can really see how some aspects of the battles worked out.  A turn is about a minute long and, in that time, a company of infantry (with a frontage of 2") can move 4" (or 6" at the double-time), or it can shoot...up to 6".  For comparison, cannons are tossing solid shot at 36-60", and canister at 18-30".  So a well-placed battery with an open field really demonstrates how artillery could dictate the course of a battle...but, at the same time, you can take the ground if you're willing to sacrifice the men.  And artillery needs time to operate - your odds on knocking out an enemy company in a single shot aren't great, so you usually need several turns to do some damage.  A canny opponent will screen his men with skirmishers, threaten you with light cavalry, and pull your infantry protection out of position with the threat of heavy horse.

The French usually form in columns - the infantry aren't high quality shooters, so they're better off relying on the bayonet than musketry to break an enemy position.  Columns are easier to maneuver, easier to screen, and provide more hitting power in melee than forming a long, thin line - which is what the British like to do, since they have the best musketmen in the game.  So by "hitting part of the line," I mean what happens when a French column (only 4" wide) hits a British line (about 16" across).  Troops at the other end of the line are 100 yards away or more from the point of the attack, so it's kind of weird that they would panic and break immediately just because the far end of the line is crumbling.  I'm trying a fix where the companies that are actually engaged are driven back if they lose combat - panic is rolled only after combat resolution, so only troops driven back by the assault would be in danger of immediate panic.

Ok - some updates on last week.

(https://i.imgur.com/tVnvEUZ.jpg)
Inspired by Padres and going all the way back to around day 59 of the '100 days' when I started playing about.

(https://i.imgur.com/LbGHVA5.jpg)
These are some of the old spearmen with the weapons removed and hands  drilled out ready for pikes. Will give me 4 GW trooper types as well as the TTCombat/Warlord Games ones.

(https://i.imgur.com/BnC5CHV.jpg)
Midlam Cult of the Moon Goddess KS arrived and got cleaned up and textured bases.
14 figures with a number of uses from priestesses to female NPCs.
Another really nice set from Midlam.

(https://i.imgur.com/46bU7lV.jpg)
Oathmark metal Elven Light Infantry Command + Special freebie.
I am going to make up a small Elven force from a lot of odd elf figures I have somehow acquired.
(Of course 'when' is the big question.)

(https://i.imgur.com/IoJafSc.jpg)
Some Midlam halflings 'left over' from previous recent KS' as I had a vague idea of putting them on round bases and using them for a halfling warband in Frostgrave - however given all the soldier options in the game, I decided that if I do go that route it will have to be on square bases, as my halflings have to work as a rank and file army as well.

(https://i.imgur.com/VL9JhS8.jpg)

Finally - on Friday - this is the set up for a first ever game of Legends of the Old West with eldest son.
We have played Legends of the High Seas a few times and had fun so we gave this a try. He had picked up some scenery very cheap and so we scrambled some figures together and had a game.
He won - narrowly.
Title: Re: The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club ...
Post by: Midaski on August 19, 2020, 05:03:07 PM
Now for this week:

2 more games of Legends of the Old West.
Saturday we played Jail Break and this oldtimer actually won.
One of my vigilantes notched up 3 kills with his shotgun.

(https://i.imgur.com/P4tIVai.jpg)

(https://i.imgur.com/bviTq5U.jpg)
The Outlaws try to storm the Jail, but my Sherriff and the Vigilante - just visible through the window - held them off and they 'Ran for the Hills'.

Sunday however was a different matter.  :icon_rolleyes:
Here is the evidence:

(https://i.imgur.com/c8PARMZ.jpg)
Rolling for 6s - or not  :icon_twisted:


(https://i.imgur.com/ubjdhSW.jpg)
I started with 9 guys against his 10 and lost 8 of them - only my Leader surviving.

We played these two games in campaign style and probably I would have run for it much earlier, but as it was the last game of the trip we both slugged it out to a bitter end.
Good fun though - and I may well try and find that old Wild West thread we had a while back.

Are we talking 15mm?  Even so, my sense is if one end of a Brit line was hit by a French column and destroyed/routed/etc.  the rest of the line might not stick around anyway.  Maybe someday I'll have info via some historical source that says I'm wrong.  Regardless, I'm not that familiar, nor do I generally worry too much about the intimate details of Napoleonic warfare, largely because I can't keep up with it all, and so look for a simple rules system that gives me a feel for the activity to have some fun.  I realize some folks will get into more of the nitty gritty stuff and that is ok, I lack time and energy these days, and there's really no correct way, whatever folks do to have fun is ok by me.

Yeah, we play 15mm.  We use Flames of War bases for Infantry companies and Cavalry troops/escardons.  The games are usually little more than brigade-size action, so fairly small as far as battles go (about 3,000 men per side).  The scaling speed vs. frontage vs. shooting thing is fun - I'm very interested in doing the same for American Civil War.  If nothing else, it will show the impracticality of a bayonet charge quite vividly.

As far as the column vs. line thing, I don't think there are a lot of historical situations where a column really hit only one end of a single British regiment (from the front, at least).  Historically, I'm sure the regiment commander would either pull his men back, form deeper ranks, or use the rest of his regiment (if unengaged/threatened) to enfilade the attacking column.  But these wargame generals are sometimes prone to missing details on the field...and they can be much more callous with their men's lives.   :|



Hobby-wise, I did get a little bit done today; the Birdmen are colored, though in need of highlights on their leather, woodwork, and feathers, and my landspeeder has its hull highlighted.  I feel like it's taken forever but, to be fair, the hull is the vast majority of the vehicle, so hopefully it'll go a little faster moving forward.

Does D&D count as hobbying?  Did that tonight.  Remotely, as one of our players had a possible Covid exposure at work and is waiting on his test results.  Wasn't too terribly exciting...we definitely move more slowly via remote.  But the party teleported across the country without dying, hiked into the mountains (in February), and began their very slow trek toward a long-forgotten tower.  At their current pace, they should complete this story arc (and thus level) somewhere around...Christmas.  They do not understand this and think that they're on a short mission.

I'm not a nice DM.   :happy:

I appreciate that Roll20 could be a very comprehensive way to run a campaign.  I just don't have the time to learn all its details.

Week 2
Sunday 16th August:
-Finished the Intercessors Squad to battle-ready standard for Benthe
-Build up the 3 Death Guard Plague Marines from the Easy-to-build set
Monday 17th August:
-Painted some more on my Fire Warriors.. doing all their armour at the moment in a first layer, after that need to put on the 2nd camouflage color, this stage is tedious and long but once done it's only a small ways to go to finish the models
Thursday 20th August:
-Finished a little test run on an Intercessor on another way to paint the main armour and liking it and think it ill be a good time saver also. So will follow that route now from now on.
-Also slapped some paint on the Captain in Gravis Armour

Welp, I lost a week. Got a fever last Friday so had to go into isolation until I could go in for a test and get the result. Negative (woo), but meant I've spent the past week in a little separate sunroom with no net, and none of my warhammer stuff.

At least I did lots of fluff writing! Going to make up time this week.

Fluff writing counts.  How many days :icon_question:

Four! More or less. It's pretty scattered between Fantasy, 40k, D&D and other stuff, but at least its vaguely hobby related!

Post by: GamesPoet on August 22, 2020, 01:50:49 AM
I count most anything hobby related.  And probably then some. :icon_wink:

Like reading rules ... probably going to read some more of the Warcry rule this evening, after I ice my foot next.

The latter wouldn't count as hobby.  Obviously, I have my limits. :icon_lol:

Got some flames on my landspeeder today, and a little more color on the birdmen.  Not a lot done, but it was 88 degrees and the family lakehouse is 20 minutes from where I live, so I don't think I wasted my day.

Yep, one day, one hobby item at a time, it ins't a bad pace.  I got more Warcry rules done, plus watched Warcry videos to gets some ideas for the scenery.  Not sure if I'll get any hobby time in today, there's so much else that needs to be tended, but maybe.  No big deal if not, and the nore I get done today, the more time I can take tomorrow!

Week 2
Sunday 16th August:
-Finished the Intercessors Squad to battle-ready standard for Benthe
-Build up the 3 Death Guard Plague Marines from the Easy-to-build set
Monday 17th August:
-Painted some more on my Fire Warriors.. doing all their armour at the moment in a first layer, after that need to put on the 2nd camouflage color, this stage is tedious and long but once done it's only a small ways to go to finish the models
Thursday 20th August:
-Finished a little test run on an Intercessor on another way to paint the main armour and liking it and think it ill be a good time saver also. So will follow that route now from now on.
-Also slapped some paint on the Captain in Gravis Armour
Friday 21st August:
-Put some more layers on my fire warriors
-Then later Benthe and I worked some more on the Salamanders, she on layering the other Intercessors and me on the Captain. I tried to use the Magos Purple contrast paint on the cloak, but that turned out to patchy, o will need to revisit that, maybe with Volopous pink contrast on the higher patchy area's or just going full on classic method with the purples

My new Frostgrave II rulebook turned up this morning along with the freebie apprentice wizard and a box of the new plastic foot knight set.

Unlike GP, in this house a new box gets opened straightaway.   :biggriin:

I also had an envelope from Wargames Illustrated containing an order I only placed yesterday - a hard copy of the free 'War of the Roses' rules called:
"Never Mind the Billhooks"

Described as; Wargaming Big Skirmishes and Small Battles in the Wars of the Roses.
32-page booklet
The last 8 pages are gaming aids so 24 pages of rules with what seems, from a cursory look, good explanations, and photo examples.


While I was away last week I had a reread of "Lion Rampant" and got rather enthused about sorting out some units for that game.
I have quite a few painted (badly) Bretonnian Knights from the old (5th?) starter pack of Brets and Lizzies.
I also have lots of those 2-pose archers painted, and unpainted, but my favourites, metal Bret spearmen.

Oh!!! I want/need that 2 but on the Osprey site I see that within 2 days (publication date 20th of August and just turned 23rd..) the hardback is already out of stock... damn will need to wait then or find it somewhere else

Well I couldn't help myself at dinner time and watched a painting video for doing the Warcry wood and making one's own wooden terrain pieces.

Then after dinner, got out the Warcry terrain instruction book and put together the large sculpted head.  Had to clean up wear the pieces were snipped from the sprue, and I do like the looks of the thing.  There is a piece of fallen and crushed column used to have the sculpted head rest upon, yet honestly the think stands by itself, so I might also use the crushed and fallen column as scatter terrain too.

Got a bit in today. 2 more vanguard insanity generators. Throwing out an old dining room table and found the base will be ideal for a 2nd board. This one 8  ft by 4. Will have to build it up to suit my height but it makes for a good base.
Also cleared the other game table to get ready for Rubyville to be over run with the new night goblins filth machine that is Krasbogís Gloomspite Gitz.  Not sure who the defenders will be yet.
Rearranged my fluff as well. I was originally going to have 3 towns - Matorea, Rubyville and Fort Stanley but itís just too much. Itís now been condensed to the town of Rubyville with Fort Stanley being the central building in the great state of Matorea.

Another day, a little more paint.  The Birdmen themselves are fully dressed except for metal, and their wings are coming along with basecoats on everything except the struts and metal.  And the landspeeder has highlighting finished on its black and green sections - now it's on to metals and the heavy flamer.  And I should probably prime the crew and multi-melta.

I also painted a stairway today, but I don't think that counts as a hobby - that's just a home project.  But it was more painting.   :happy:

-Made the Captain almost battleready after redoing his cloak the classical way and some free hand flames on his shoulderpad (see the discord WIPS), just need to do his base for now

Ha - don't worry - I have just borrowed the concept of proper halfing pikemen, and made the Wargames Atlantic ones more useful, blending them in with the metal GW ones.

Yours will always be 'unique', and maybe I will buy you a pint for "intellectual partial-theft" some time in the future.  :biggriin:

This morning I tore into some more boxes in the hobby room and rearranged some more hobby stuff.  This is going to be an ongoing project, and I still have 5 boxes in my kitchen too, plus whatever is in the storage room out my kitchen back door ... lol.  I'm actually kind of irritated that I didn't get around to this stuff sooner, but at least it is happening, so all's well that ends well, so to speak.

Does trying to do wet-in-wet blending and completely failing to achieve the desired effect count as hobbying as well?  :eusa_wall:

I'm working on my contribution for the Massive Voodoo challenge 2020.

The task is to 'tell your story to what far away planet, crazy situation or miracle your astronaut travels.

You can build dioramas, single bases, connect with other figures of every scale, add a gang of astronauts to your story and see no limitation in size or else whatsoever. You are also allowed to convert the astronaut. The only rule is: The tiny astronout has to be involved at least once.'

Mine will be 'coronauts', i.e. tiny astronauts / white blood cells fighting a corona virus because I didn't want to tell the usual space story. Here's what I've built so far:

(https://i.ibb.co/6txpZb7/20200607-175038.jpg)

(https://i.ibb.co/nL4x97q/20200706-142734.jpg)

Tonight I tried to paint the red blood cells (i.e. the part I sculpted with milliput to achieve a 3D effect) so that they blend into the picture. Epic fail so far. I'll try again tomorrow.

Been busy the past couple of nights and haven't gotten to my computer to report.   :dry:  Tuesday I did a little more painting, and yesterday I was working on rules for a fantasy skirmish game.  Wish i could say it's coming along well, but really I'm having a hard time getting a core concept that I like.

I can add another couple of days.

Weds and Today I have been busy with my pictorial inventories, and have based and textured more models.
Also stripped some sprues of the spare parts.

I've been working on the bat rep for the last few days, for hours and hours at a time! That was completed yesterday. Now I have begun modelling some light horsemen for the 'Arrabiatti' brotherhood. Perry plastics and metals.

Hi folks ... I don't mind updating this thread from time to time, and when I goof in so doing, grateful to those who catch it.  However, not interested in going back through posts to see if my count has been correct when seeing unclear postings of what is happening or not.  Going to add a new day to the tally unless I see someone specifically mentioning more (like Midaski does when he comes into the thread every so often). Thank you! :::cheers:::

Picked up an expansion pack for Blackstone Fortress today at my FLGS...not that I have anything else for the game, but a box with traitor guardsmen, Ur-Ghuls, a rogue psyker, beastmen, a spare CSM, and even a couple of crazy Mechanicus dudes for only $35...too hard to resist.  Been putting them together this afternoon and looking forward to adding a few more bodies to my Sarassian 721st 'Mudrakers' Regiment.

Got in the last role playing session of the summer with nephews last night.

It was as good as the last two sessions, where they managed to fight off a rat ogre and two larger skaven guards, live through the explosion of the rat leader's weapon backpack while somehow the rat leader managed to survive, and being the skaven he is, fled with the rest of his minions to fight another day.  Then the party made it past a gray ooze, burning it and collecting a piece of it, on their way out of the sewer, although one of them managed to lose their sword to the creature as well.

Last night the party did to advance the relationships with both the North Gate and Postern Gate captains, and they managed to cut a deal to do surveillance of the docks from the top of a city warehouse's stone watchtower. So in wrap up ... their is a mercenary military force in the city now that has employed the dark elf units that one character went awol from, a guy in the yellow hooded cloak with his hired help who stole a book that got sold to the skaven leader, a gate captain of integrity who is on good terms with one party member, a missing merchant now being sought by the gate captain of lesser integrity who has cut a deal to allow the party to watch the docks form the top of a warehouse tower for him.  And the party of characters doesn't know this yet, but the local halfling mafia, that one character has family associated with, is also involved in the action too.

Not sure when we will play again with school starting, although maybe on one of their upcoming vacations.

I'll add another day please.

Armed up 4 more plastic halfling pikemen - 3 to add to the 7 pure pikemen I had made, and 1 with halberd which I have chopped off the blade and added a rooster standard top to.

The 10 troopers will be unit fillers with the metal GW conversions I am working on, and I now have a standard and a musician with halberd for a possible command group.

I actually considered buying my first Stormcrud dudes, the boxed set for Warcry, and I can actually see they have real faces.  However, with all these negative vibes about making them, not sure it'd be a wise descision. :icon_wink:

Got in another session of clipping off pieces from the Warcry starter set scenery sprues.  That's three now ... the fallen sculpture sprue, and one eachj of both the wall sprues.  Plus cleaned off all the connection spots.  Still debating on how I'm going to paint them though.

Day 3 has been quite frustrating for me. Even though I spent a lot of time adding two more layers, there doesn't seem to be a lot of change compared to last week. Analysed it with friend based on a black-and-white pic and part of it definitely is a contrast issue.

(https://i.ibb.co/yRMPmCq/Bust-29082020.jpg)

I'll try to fix it tomorrow. These hard neon lights are a challenge to paint.

Tara ... sometimes stuff just happens, don't rush, progress will occur.

And congrats Gankom on all that completed!

For me ... another sprue of the Warcry scenery snipped and filed ... the bell tower sprue, and it had mold line on the main piece, so I dispatched of those.  I may do more this evening, but might watch a movie instead.  After taking a Sunday off from anything hobby related after the 100 Days of Hobby 2020 project was complete, I have now done 20 days in a row.  That has surprised me, and not sure how long I'll keep that up.

Finished assembling and priming my Blackstone minis - looking forward to adding another squad to my rather-less-than-always-loyal Guard regiment.  =)  And struts on the Birdmen are coming along.  I'm having a hard time keeping up any enthusiasm for that project, but I'll be happy when it's done.

As folks are aware, I enjoy an orange and blue scheme for some of my figures ... Matorea, a Marienburg Merchant House, and a small branch of my Averland area.  However, I like the purple and orange look for the elves. better than that blue used on the other figure.  And the orange ties them into the your other forces of order that you have ... Empire and Sigmarites and Dwarfs, and that seems ideal to do that.

I quite agree. Purple it is. I made the sash blue and the bows will be white plus the cloth under the mail for the complete matorean look.

Ah! I didn't pick up on the blue on the sash/belt.  My sense is it could look better if it is a bit more of a bold blue, maybe a blue wash on top of it so that it is clearly established as separate from the purple?

Wargaming today!  Napoleonics, for the last time in a few weeks (Labor Day weekend and then I'm out to Wyoming for two weeks).

The battlefield was centered around a wheat field, with a town to the west, hills to the south, and a river bend to the southeast.  British held the town and the north side of the field, French came over the hills to the south - 4 main battalions per side, plus artillery and cavalry.  British riflemen and a battalion held the town well, though a few buildings were briefly captured by French dragoons (and one was set ablaze by French howitzers).  British artillery opened the battle well, but French infantry and particularly light cavalry managed to overrun their guns and silence them by mid-game.  In the center, French troops smashed through a British battalion (with very heavy losses on both sides) and opened the middle of the field, splitting the British in half, but there weren't enough forces there to exploit the breach, and the French right flank collapsed against Portuguese infantry and British dragoons.  The French spearhead, pressured from both sides, then broke apart, and the French left and remaining companies withdrew under cover from the artillery.

Our game uses "Army Morale Points" to reflect an army's status - each side starts with a set number and loses them as they lose units, officers, and so on.  The French started with 19, the British with 18; at battle's end the British were down to only 1 point (and the French were at 0), so it was an extremely close game.  Lots of fun for everyone.

Yesterday (Sunday) saw me move 12 figures off the modelling bench and into the 'awaiting undercoating' box.

I also think I have finished, as far as I can, my pictorial inventory of, for want of a better description, my North America Black Powder figures.

There are 5 figures left over that I cannot pinpoint at the moment: one I think is a special freebie, one a British Ranger, one a French Marine, and then the other two are Woodland Indians


This includes all my FIW, Wild West, and Native Americans figures.
The hard copies will have a pencilled note of how many of each figure I have.
They will go into clear punched pockets and in to a binder.

Public Holiday in the UK - doubt I will get anything done today, No2son and his wife are coming for Lunch, and I also have to do a Risk Assessment for something sporty I am running next Sunday - bloody bureaucracy.  :biggriin:

On Wednesday night, got in back into the hobby room and did some more cleaning up of the Bell Tower pieces for the Warcry scenery.  I was picking them up to put them to one side, and noticed that I hadn't really done a good job getting rid of the mold lines that seemed to litter the pieces from this sprue.  Didn't have much of an issue with the other sprues that I've done, but this one seemed to be the worst, and a bit of a pain to say the least.

Finally finished painting the Birdmen.  They'll get 24 hours to dry and then get hit with varnish, and then another 24 hours and then varnish on the other side, and then I'll finally stick them on their bases and call them done-but-for-basing-and-that's-good-enough.  And I'm actually pretty happy with how they look.

Now moving on to other projects - a giant for my greenskins, a few gribblies for D&D, and some rogue guardsmen.

Today just more finish on the shadow warriors. Tomorrow I should be able to send them to the battlefield.

Even though I've been getting something in each day recently, it has been so slow going to motivate myself for hobby room activity.  There is a lot going on here and being dealt with from various directions.  I am still feeling like at least the Warcry rules, and fluff reading of the 9th edition hardback rule book are accomplishing something, and even that is a bit stress relieving.

Planning to spend some time on non-hobby home projects this current 3 day weekend, and a little bit of good food and wine.  Not sure what if anything will happen with the hobby except more reading, but maybe.

I also have a new interaction going on with a new lady, and it has been all over internet and phone so far, she live in Virginia.  We are planning for me to visit, and see how that goes, yet one day at a time.

Got some more paint on minis today.  Giant is coming along slowly, and the traitor guardsmen are very distracting (also, I like the paint scheme for them, so that might have something to do with it).

I miss playing 40k though.  Might have to arrange that in a few weeks.

Week 4
Sunday August 30th:
-Almost done with armour panels on the Fire warriors, hope to do a little more this evening and then I have a little hope to be able to fnish them tomorrow.
Tuesday September 1st:
-Made my end of the month pictures and wrote my blog post, together with the updating the 12 months hobby discord channel update posting
Thursday September 3rd:
-Build Lord Felthius and the Tainted Cohort (Lord of Contagion with Manreaper and 3 Blightlord Terminators) and magnetized the bases
Friday September 4th:
-Undercoated the 3 Plague Marines and the Lord Felthius and Tainted Cohort, but I probably won't paint one of them as the Plaguespewer is issing a Balesword or Bubotic Axe on the model. So will need a normal box of the Blightlord Terminators to adjust that.

A long long time ago, in a country far away across the Pond ......
A hobbyist bought a Dremel 300 ....
And hardly ever used it ....


Now however faced with the daunting task of drilling 20+ metal hands to fit pikes, I went searching for the Dremel and all its bits.

And guess what - it only came with one collet at 1/8" and so it is too big to make a decent sized hole in the hand.
Apparently according to the manual I should be able to get 3 smaller sizes, so going to hunt on the web.

I guess 1/32" is going to be the best, but they also do a 1/16" and 3/32" and there are a couple of other potential uses I can think of - magnets for different levels of buildings for example.

However back to the point of this thread - had a quiet week hobbywise as I have been focussed on all the paperwork around restarting our local Walking Football group tomorrow - so far 21 guys turning up aged from 54 to 76.

Anyway nothing Monday to Thursday, unless you count looking at the figures on my worktable,  :engel: but yesterday I found the Dremel, and all the accessories, fired it up, and experimented some cutting and burring - not too successfully. Went on the internet to find an instruction manual, and not really sure I got the right one - it said Dremel 300 in the title, but then only refers to 100, 200 and then 3000 in the booklet.

More research today, and will hopefully be ordering the collets, and working out what a couple of extra pieces, I have, are.

I've heard GP likes a nice streak.   :engel:


Sunday - zilch - too knackered after my exercise to do more than look at the workbench.

However today, did get some undercoat spraying done - some buildings - pics later, as I am trying to get some paint on them this week.
All my Dremel stuff, plus some other bits I ordered are arriving sometime Wednesday and probably lateish in the day, so painting and maybe some greenstuffing of saddles/blankets on some cavalry which I have been 'looking at' for a few weeks.  :closed-eyes:

Yep ... only took the Sunday off after the 100 Days of hobbying.  So in the last 128 days ... 126 hobbying, 2 not.

As for Midaski ... looks like he's celebrating Labor Day today, along with us yanks in the US.  And for a Conservative Brit, that's quite the idea! :icon_wink: :icon_lol:

I had pork roll, potatoes and eggs for breakfast.  Got me a burger lined up for lunch next.  Then pasta for dinner!  The weather is wonderful ... breezes, sun, 80 degrees farenheit, white wiffy clouds ... marvelous! :icon_cool: :icon_biggrin: :::cheers:::

Well, I'm not going to hit the goal this week.  I turned on Diablo 2 and it's eaten my last couple of nights.  And I leave on Wednesday morning, so no chance of getting 3 days of hobbying in now.

And I'll be out of town all of next week.  And most of the week after.  But I'm sure I'll be happy to get some painting in when I get back.   :happy:

Hobby of a different sort but still a hobby. Besides some mega games, these were 2nd of my favourite 3 standard size games from the spi magazine. 1-,Berlin 85, 2 Sicily - the Race for Messina and 3 as yet un-reacquired Wellingtonís victory - the battle of quatra bras. Totally interchangeable as the mood takes me.
I met a Canadian vet who made his wat thru Enna - the toughest fighting in Sicily btw - and he said he loved his job as a sniper, taking out the Luftwaffe paratroopers. He said they had a Mandatory height of 6í and above. Made great lumbering targets apparently (!)
Kinda freaked me out but he goes down as one of the few vets I met. I also met a survivor of Stalingrad (German) and another German who flew the me252 jets. Also my neighbour was in the 4th mountain division in Russia. Many livid stories of the horrors there and the long retreat to Germany. Very glad  I met these guys and only the Stalingrad survivor had no stories other than  I was lucky not to be part of it.

Also, GP and I had some war game stories to swap about Sicily and Wellington

That's the original printing of the Sicily one, never owned it.  I only have the reprint from further down the line.

Might have the original Berlin game, can't recall, and still need to go hunting at my parent's home.  I am certain that Quatre Bras is there, and that was one heck of a game that I played solo against myself multiple times as a youngster.

If there's enough time ... when is that? ... going to get that latter item out, and give it a go again. Maybe when I make it to Canada, we might even give it a whirl then too.

Sunday: I added some more highlights to figures of my Bretonnian warband. I also stripped an old banner to use for them :-)

I hope to get something done this evening, but somehow I don't have high hopes for that.
But on a positive note, I planned a game of 8th edition Warhammer against Soth the end of this month.

No chance to achieve 3 days this week because I was ill, but at least I've just managed to assemble my light tent despite an instruction manual in Chinese only, to take a few pics, and I did get to help a friend who wants to paint something bright red.  :icon_wink:

No hobbying for me yesterday, nothing.  Went to Peabody and Salem Mass though. In Peabody went to a ballroom dance studio for the first time in 8 months? Wow, what a year it has been so far.

I digress.  I am a bit stunned looking back at it all and we still got a third of it to go.  What will happen next?  Already there has been an epidemic public health issue, total change in how I do business, gratefully moved before the health crisis occurred, had to stop all social dancing and lessons, lost another relationship just after helping her put in a cool little flower garden, my father has cancer and slow dementia moving back in with my mother for care, although some how still enjoying life and making the best of things.

Anyway, bought two pairs of dance shoes, shiny black and fancy black.  Then I booted over to the coast driving thru Salem to get to a place called Fort Pickering, originally Fort Williams in the pre-colonial days.  Not much to see, it isn't unfortunately being kept up.  The breeze off the ocean was wonderful, with the water a deep blue.  Saw a multi masted Canadian sailing ship flying an American flag, and a banner that read "France",  it was gorgeous.  I had a slice of sauage pizza for lunch, fresh popcorn, and salt water taffy.

Over the last 134 days, I have done something hobby related 131 of those, missing 3 ... this is definitely making for a good year, despite the other issues being faced.

Friday September 11th:

-After grabbing the 2 paints I needed at the store on saturday I went ahead and painted the salamander sergeants face with it, applied the transfers and put on the Ironcrust/earth and the black paint on the base to let it dry and crack for monday evening to finish off the models.

Been so busy lately, I have been unable to do anything hobby related. 3 jobs will do that lol. Will be taking 2 weeks in October. First holidays in 5 years. We took a week off then and before that I took a week in 2009 to renovate a friends condo in west palm beach.
Forgot about that little stumble in 2016 with the heart thingy. Needed 2 months repair after the internal body electrical failure (😺)
Will try harder this weekend but we start another bathroom tomorrow morning.

3 jobs and no vacation in 5 years?  :icon_eek:

I'm glad with my 36 hours a week job (split in 32 and 40 hours per week so I have 1 monday per 2 weeks extra off) and getting about 4 weeks holiday per year!

I did a day's paid work for the first time in 6 months this week! I have another two day's work next week, if the local lockdowns that have begun allow, and if my customers don't cancel.

Artobahn, you and I live very different lives!

It does seem like worlds apart. I work for a property management/owner developer 1/2 time, run a construction company doing commercial tenant fit up and I work for an online app that has customers who hire to do handyman services, painting and flooring.
I get about 15-20 job notifications a day with the online, but that just fills in time I donít usually have (😺). My wife and I do everything (she is a taper/jointer painter but fills in with everything else and we havenít killed each other yet.....YET. and I drag my cousin in when things are crazy. During the lockdown, we worked for a real estate company doing virtual sales so they basically handed us the keys, a list of things and no one in site and a due date, the commercial jobs were big open non occupied areas that we traded time depending on the trades. The propert management never stops and I rarely have to deal with people. Win win situation but damn Iím tired out.

Another gem of playing the game this long. SKS has it right. Time to enjoy some of lifeís meagre pleasures. If I had it to do again, there would be massive life changes

Friday September 18th:
-Did the panel lining on the 10 firewarriors, again tedious work but it's done now, maybe a little clean up here and there but the smaller brush I bought (army painter one) helped a lot to keep it cleaner then it use to be. Now I can focus on finishing touches to make them battleready
-At the same time I did some work on the support system as well, done the darker blue and also the panel lining and a bit of copper work

So I read the Indomitus Crusade fluff last night and I like it! Including the Age of Witches.  :icon_biggrin: :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

This is the kind of thing that could have been done with the original Warhammer world for fantasy, instead of totally messing up the fluff to the point of complete destruction and the high fantasy strains of W:AoS.

But I digress ... the moving forward of the 40K fluff with the opening of the Rift being responded to via a crusade puts the Imperium on the offensive in a situation where Chaos is on the verge of destroying things badly, and now will be confronted by the advancement of a huge military response.

I like it! :icon_mrgreen:

This week has been a write-off for me.

You would have thought that with no PC until Thursday afternoon that I would have had loads of time for hobby .... ....

... ... well I didn't take advantage of it.

Had a flu jab, played some football, watched some very old TV series on a newly discovered UK Freeview Channel, and only managed to set up my Dremmel and change the collet to take a paper clip size bit, and then about 30 minutes painting, some of those fields I made, green.

This week has been a write-off for me as well. I've got a lot of covid19-related problems and have to find a smaller, less expensive flat fast while there are almost none available in my area. Challenging enough and not the right time for additional painting challenges like the bust.

I made another attempt to paint the red blood cells of my coronauts project today though. Pics asap.

Have lit the proverbial fire under my arse and started the vanguards. Just brown for their cloakes and stuff on their front armour.
Also read the entire Sicily campaign. Wanted to start the game but crushed that bit of oddball inspiration. Later...later....
it was hard to get reinspired (?) and still reluctant to continue.
Ever feel like you would just like to stop everything till you felt better? I heard yesterday about squids that surface to feed and descend to the cold depths and shut down most bodily functions to achieve a near suspended animation. They do this every day!!
I like that idea for some reason

Sunday September 20th:
-Took pictures of my firewariors and the CDS (Counterfire Defense System) and posted them on insta and a few discord channels
-Started to work on my Death Guard models, doing the bases with pva glue and sand, then painting them up with grey. While the sand was drying also applied the Black Templar on the armour. And I found out that the Lord of Contagion (Lord Felthius) has a 40 mm base while the LoC from Dark Imperium has a 50mm base... like huh what? So after some thinking I decided to drop the already worked on 40mm base and start on a 50mm base for him..So that is now 2 moddeling errors with the kit? odd..

Read through the material in White Dwarf 456 regarding the Silver Templars ... nicely done!  Won't likely use this, but reminds me of the desire to come up with a home brew Chapter.  Perhaps one day.  Stole a glance through the scenery ideas for the Mines of Verticus, too.

Looks like I will get in something for today and Tuesday, so will make my 3 Days for this week.  However, with vaca looming on Wednesday, probably won't get in much the rest fo the week if anything.  The plan is travel to VA to meet the new lady friend in person, plus going to see Mount Vernon, and who knows what else, plus go to New Jersey to visit with family, and might even put in an appearance at Admiral Dewey's flag ship from the Spanish-American War in the Philly naval yard, too.

Of course no doubt there will be dancing involved ... ... ...

... ... ... how's your horizontal tango, GP?

The red blood cells I sculpted for my coronauts are done, and I'm working on the virus now. The cloves I used are a pain in the ass to paint.  :icon_rolleyes:

Second painting day this week though.  :happy:

Week 7
Sunday September 20th:
-Took pictures of my firewariors and the CDS (Counterfire Defense System) and posted them on insta and a few discord channels
-Started to work on my Death Guard models, doing the bases with pva glue and sand, then painting them up with grey. While the sand was drying also applied the Black Templar on the armour. And I found out that the Lord of Contagion (Lord Felthius) has a 40 mm base while the LoC from Dark Imperium has a 50mm base... like huh what? So after some thinking I decided to drop the already worked on 40mm base and start on a 50mm base for him..So that is now 2 moddeling errors with the kit? odd..
Monday September 21st:
-Started the day with reading up on a WD in my backlog of reading.
-Did more work on the Death Guard models by drybrushing the bases, even on the newly 50mm base, and tidying up the primer for the Emerald Green which I also applied on all but one Terminator and the LoC.
-Did some more work on the concept idea's for the Crusade campaign and hosting it on out local clubs discord server. Just to finalize some things

No hobbying for me yesterday.  Just too tired, which sometimes this means I'm being lazy, and other times  it means I'm just not managing my time to get it in accordingly.  Need to be careful and not let this turn into a slump.  Considering bringing my 9th edition 40K rule book, maybe even my Warcry core book, with me on vaca, so that I can keep the mind flowing in a hobby direction, and can keep going on the other side.

Sorry chaps, the last weeks were very busy with real life and some technical issues in the house. But now I have 2 weeks of, and I hope to finish some stuff.

Last week - From Sunday 13/09 to 19/09:

[/li][/list]

This week - From Sunday 20/09 to 26/09:

And friday I have my first game of Warhammer Fantasy 8th in years against Soth. 1500 points of Dawi, against??

I have arrived in DC ... at a bed and breakfast, old fashioned rooming house place, the kind that back in the long ago day that Congressmen would rent when they came in from across the country for Congressional service. Big ole fire place with a old wooden writing desk included.

Might get in some reading before sleep, but we'll see.

I got in reading the designer note in side White Dwarf 456.  Actually, I skipped over the space marine notes and went directly to the Necrons and all their silly nastiness.  It was actually kind of a funny read, entertained with their shenanigans.

Lol ... we won't tell anyone. :icon_wink:

Came back last night from a fabulous date, and to slow down picked up White Dwarf 456.  Only read the  designer notes for the Primaris space marines, and enjoyed them better than expected.  More because it gave me a better feel for what was happening with them than anything else. Not exciting or humorous, just a better feel for the knightlyness of the space marines in general.

More work on the background of the coronauts for this year's Massive Voodoo Challenge ...

(https://i.ibb.co/xCFSLyC/Coronauts-26092020.jpg)

I don't like how the virus itself blends into the background though. So I did some research on alternative colour schemes.

Ushapti instead of grey and purple or a mixture of red and purple on the cloves?
Or grey plus orange and a red wash on the cloves? What do you think?

I've actually had a pretty productive weekend. I've spent all three days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) editing fluff, writing some new lore, going back through older stuff to find some character who've been a bit overlooked and filling in what they've been doing. We also had the end of a roleplaying "cycle" today, which lets my crew and I move forward with some new things in our shared world. My step forward was having Tyrian wipe out a nearby pirate nest that had been bothering a number of us.

Of course instead of simply leaving, I took a page out of the Roman book. Tyrian took it as an opportunity to leave an Elven garrison there. Creating the new trade post of Emporia, slowly expanding my little kingdom, and giving me a better base to hunt those bothersome pirates.

Not sure I like the scale of what I'm painting atm (entire rooms) ...  :unsure:

Small progress on the virus for my diorama though as well ...

SKS, you are the second person saying he doesn't quite like the cloves ... any idea how I could improve them? What exactly is it you don't like?

The Red/Purple ones are sticking out of the virus bulb to much colorwise and also blending to much in with the background giving it a weird feel as if it should belong to the background instead of the virus bulb

Week 7
Sunday September 27th:
-Just a bit of reading done in the WD454 besides watching F1
Monday September 28th:
-Almost finished with all my Death Guard models on the list, by adding the last colors on the Lord of Contagion, doing the washes on the terminators and rust effects on all. Just need to finish the bases and maybe a little touch up here and there.
Tuesday September 29th:
-Had planned to go to the club but my opponent fell sick and had to cancel and short term couldn't find another opponent, so stay at home and read WD454 out and off to the shelf it is.
Wednesday September 30th:
-Finished my death guard models! Woot nicely done at the last day of the month, have some spare time left so will take pictures and will update several places I post my pictures and thus also my Blogpost for this month.
Thursday October 1st:
-Started reading the last of the Psychic Awakening books Pariah, also to get a bit of background information for the upcoming Crusade Campaign, should get the Crusade supplement in tomorrow also for that. So then a week more to prepare and then start the campaign in full.

Got back into the 9th edition 40K core rule book and went through all the fluff pages on space marines.  It seemed the writing tailed off a bit from the  interesting fluff earlier in the book.  Two more days for me to get in three for the week.

By the way, got in my third day with more reading of 9th Edition fluff.  Noticing that some sections are better than others.  Not sure of that means there were different writers/editors/etc., or if someone was having an off day.

Last night I read the two pages on "Imperial Agents", and that seems to complete the section called "The Saga Imperialis".  I liked the bits on Sisters of Silence, Officio Assassinorum, and Rogue Traders.  Plus browsed the 18 pages of pictures of Imperialis forces.  Next it will be on to reading about "The Lost and The Damned" followed by "Xenos Invaders".  That will finish up 195 pages of fluff, yowza!  Then the rules begin including items that weren't in the core rules released before this hard back book.

Up early and got a jump start on hobbying for the week with reading on the Eldar and Dark Eldar, and those other two newer 40K elf outfits.  Enjoyed the Eldar fluff, but the Dark Eldar fluff seemed repetitive in places.  The newer items, I could do without.

(GP ... GW doesn't call them Eldar anymore.)

Warcry comes to the rescue and the bell tower was born.
Getting an itch to have it out with those no good gobboís. Still only a 2200 pt Stormcast army against 2460 Gitz. Gonna give it a try.

Read about the Tyranids attacking Eldar land, and how the 40K elf races are banning to gather to defend it.  Plus read the Necron fluff, and that seemed relatively big picture, maybe even a bit lame, but perhaps when they produce the new codex then things will improve.  Perhaps.

I've been dragged into a painting challenge on a discord server, so I'm painting up Valten. (As it turns out I mentioned previously.) I've spent the past two nights of my holidays slowly working away at him.

Also spent today writing up a quick fluff blurb for what he's been doing in my homebrew kingdom and why he's not in the Empire. (Sadly fallen in this strange, new world.)

I hate acrylics. Everything I try to do goes wrong somehow. None of my enamels' techniques are transferable. I have been reduced to watching YouTube videos to learn how I am supposed to use these paints ... base, shade, technical  ... aagh! Some dry quickly, some seem dry then you try something over the top and the whole things goes wrong as the first layer lifts.

Got some Vallejo primer (white and black) 'cos of my difficulties with the halfling pikes. Black seems good. White is a watery mess.

Trying to paint 13 riders and some spirit hosts. The former are holding together so far, although I can't do neat detail like I used to. The latter are a nightmare (and by that I don't mean they look suitably scary).

Artoban ... here are at least two on constructing the terrain ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2GF9RSrID0

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQSaPvCS-Mo

I'm seriously thinking of using magnets.  The idea is to be able to use the terrain for the setups in the rules and on the cards, yet also have the flexibility to be more creative in setting up the terrain as well.

However, if I wasn't going to do that, then I would build them the way the terrain pieces are used with the rules and cards, and those two videos can help at least a wee bit.

There could be other videos showing how the terrain is built.

And both the links above are on page 2 of the Warcry thread ...

Read the Tau fluff in 9th edition 40 core rules, and Fifth Sphere Expansion War.  I like how the book provides these War Zone fluff pieces.  It is a bit like providing different areas of action that include different factions, and give an additional sense to what is happening across the galaxy.

This week from Sunday 11/10 - 17/10:

I also managed to spill my yellow contrast paint. I pushed it over when grabbing for something else on the desk and naturally all on my pants and sweater. Luckily, I wore a dark blue jeans and dark grey sweater, and I put them immediately in the washer, so no real harm done their, only half a pot of yellow paint gone.

Yeah, and with normal paint that is less of problem. Those are a little thicker, but the contrast are very water like and can make a bigger mess... Luckly it was at my old painting desk and not the dinner table  :ph34r:

Works in Progress

Completely acrylic, for the first time ever. These two current projects have no enamels. Even the primer and base coats.

Spirit hosts WIP
(https://i.imgur.com/sC7DAR4.jpg)
These are proving a challenge, to say the least. It's a steep learning curve 'changing your mediums'! And, I have another four yet to do. I will base them on swarm bases, two per base.

The Arrabiatti brotherhood - or light horsemen. Again completely acrylic, WIP. I think I am getting close to the bits where problems will crop up!!!
(https://i.imgur.com/7srBbSN.jpg)
13 riders, plastic Perry's plus some metal riders, and Perette now riding a horse.

So my hobbying over the weekend continued to be nil.  My father's health situation rapidly deteriorated in the last couple days of the week, and by Saturday he had to be taken to the hospital.

In the process of discovering the seriousness of his decline and seeking action, I had a sibling come completely unglued towards me.  It got really bad, but I remained calm, didn't attack nor flee, and his goal was clearly to get me to leave our parent's home, including wanting my mother to send me away.  Which of course she wouldn't do that because he was the one acting completely atrociously.  Will spare the details, yet folks can probably imagine the bull I endured from him in not returning his fire.  When I reached for my phone and started calling a friend, he backed down after his second verbal assault in a row started.

So, I have been focused on supporting my mother, and recouping from the events of the weekend.

Thanks for understanding folks.  And yep, when a parent is passing away, it is easy for some to have past emotional baggage be effecting their actions in the current.  Going to let things go by for a bit, because my father's health improving is what is most important in the immediate future, and then will address the other issue(s) accordingly.  Suspect it won't matter how rational and forgiving I am, it isn't going to please a person who has already formed their belief, opinion and memory, yet having another reoccurrence happen, and I take away some of the fuel for their fire now, maybe things like why father's comfort in transport is best handled by professionals, and how cost of such can be paid by me, then perhaps some of the additional stress venting won't occur in my direction again. Perhaps.

During W-E Greet and Paint ... did some highlighting flesh on 6 mounted crossbowmen, 5 Averland highwaymen, and 5 Aver River boatmen.  The latter 10 guys are used as free company in my Averland army.  Those are made from the old militia kit, and a few other bits thrown into the mix.

Artoban was in there doing some hobbying so will bump him up to 2 days as well.  And Mids even joined in on the fun, and will include him here,  too.

Nothing for me yesterday nor today.

My family was informed this morning that my father did not take well to the cancer treatments, and at this point he only has about a month to live.  I've tried to connect with my mother on a couple of topics, although no real opportunity to review with family piling onto to see what is going on.  I will wait for a good time. Fortunately I've already had some decent conversations further back with my father, and not sure those kinds of thing could happen at this point anyway.  He is so feeble physically, constantly tired, and not much ability to stay on focus nor articulate much.  The end is near, and the best I can do at the moment is make good choices about what is happening, even when others may not be.

Did a fair bit of painting tonight! Hopefully I can do some washes tommorow and finish these dudes off.

Wow ... what a rough week.  Had an allergy attack, and then a two days later another one, my father's doctor let us know he wasn't taking well to the cancer treatments and has maybe a month remaining, and ... got a call from the new lady friend at lunch telling me she'd met up with an old flame was going to give it a go with him again.  And this after having finalized with her the arrangements for this weekend.  Total crud, crud, crud, and more crud.  Yeah, yeah, I know better for this to happen now than later, but let's be real ... better for it to not happen at all.  Sometimes life just sucks.

Yep! It does indeed. I never met my maternal grandfather - died 1 year before I was born - but always wanted to. He spent 4 years in the trenches ww1 and 1 year after, he was 21 after that. Lived through the depression and road the rails out to Ohio I think and back. Was a logger, blacksmith and then started his own farm, raised 2 families (1st wife passed, my mom was from the 2nd) finally his lungs gave out from the 2 gas attacks he lived through in ww1. Never lost his sense of humour. Used to laugh and say Ď donít worry, it goes like this for awhile then it gets worse Ď  😺

Ok, so screw covid-19.  If I can't make it past this stupid disease, and I'm fighting it to the best of my ability, then going to still try to have fun too.

I popped out the three Corvus Cabal half sprues and put these into soapy water for cleaning over night.

Also, noticed I had 5 of my 20 something Matorean/Marienburg Merchant family swordsmen without blue on them yet.  pulled them out of the hobby room, brought them to the living room, where I've made covid-19 fighting camp, and brought along a paint tray, water cup, blue paint, and a few brushes.  I also put a second clamp and lamp holder on my living room desk for holding my magnifying light.  Too tired now, but maybe first thing in the morning.

That isn't much, yet heading in the right direction, and one moment at a time.

Fit in painting Caledor Sky blue on those last five Matorean swordsmen.  Had some left over paint and went for the my 10 Matorean handgunners, although still deciding how I'm going to do these.  They are all the plastic 6th edition handgunners and I am contemplating doing some head swaps, plus not sure I'm going to do these in the same mostly quartering pattern of the swordsmen as well.  Anyway, no rush for the moment, and at least I'm back into doing some painting.

I have broken the curse - I had a delivery from a Midlam KS of lots of wizards in pointy hats  :engel: and yesterday I cleaned and filed them up and now today I have the glue bottle open.

I also fell foul to a Great Escape Games email last week about 2-Player starter boxes for Dead Man's Hand and Chicago Way - both at £40 and where both have contents that sell individually at over £70.

On their way, and probably arriving tomorrow - so have pulled out some Pulp Figures to suit Chicago Way, and will be basing them later as I watch soccer in the background.

This week from sunday 1/11:
Wednesday: I used some tools from my father in law to make some progress on the Warcry Board. He has a lot of wood working tools, so much easier to do then with a handsaw and knifes.
Thursday: After my running cours, I cleaned up some mistakes on the Rogue Traders and touch up some mistakes. I'm planning on finishing them this weekend with the details.

Well it's Saturday and I have a 5-Day week  - possibly my first.
Tues / Weds / Thurs / Fri and now today

My Chicago Way box arrived and I have unpacked it - not touched Dead Man's Hand box yet - probably later today.
Hunted out some Pulp Dangerous Dames, Femmes fatale and Boys in Blue to join the throng on the streets.


I also had a hardback rulebook for This Very Ground turn up on its own in the post yesterday.
It's from the KS run by Brigade Games - the minis seem to be following shortly.
Looking at the 'sender' address, I have a suspicion the UK and/or maybe the Europe books were bulk supplied to here in the UK for local distribution at local postage rates - good planning.

Last week from sunday 8/11:

This week from Sunday 15/11:

For the Rogue Traders, only the basing is left. I need to drybrush the sand and add some grass, snow,... And the varnish them, which might take a little time because of the weather at the moment.
After these bad boys, some classic marauder dwarfs, which will serve as longbeards are on the painting table.

Then half way through the chain / robes get caught on somthing on the overhead beam, gravity then pulls the whole contraption over in to the moat/river and is swalloed whole by the water.. right?

My week so far:

Sunday:  Yes - filing & trimming and basing.
Monday:   No - zero activity apart from some wistful looking at minis on the worktable.
Tuesday:   Yes - unboxed and started preparing Hobgoblins 2 KS which arrived in the morning.
Wednesday:  Yes - more minis preparation, and some basing.
                    Also placed some orders for hobbystuff. 25mm Round plain bases, a 1 Litre tub of Biostrip 20
                     to try it out.
Thursday:    Yes - more gluing models to bases. In depth investigation comparing diecast vehicle models to 28mm
                   miniatures.
                   Retrieved some 'promotional' diecast vans, acquired as freebie giveaways with foodstuffs
                   many years ago, from my loft/attic which turn out to be a suitable size.


Now I could do with the wind subsiding so I might be able to undercoat spray a mountain of figures.

Oh and GHP - it sounds like, hopefully, you are slowly getting better.
Not surprised that you seem to be an unusual case though, ....... ... . .......

NorthStar are shipping their Muskets & Tomahawks II 1812 figures today, and I had an email from Brigade Games that my This Very Ground KS has also shipped - so USA UPS times I am guessing.

They are supposed to be one-use, utilitarian, so the wheels don't need iron rims, and the counterweights are just scavenged rocks. Once their loads are dropped they will be abandoned. Maybe used for firewood later?

I have been working on them bit by bit every day this week, each time waiting for paint or glue to dry!

Lots of soccer on today - it's Saturday - so Day 6 for me.

I've been sat at my workbench half watching the football, whilst texturing bases.
Total for the week = 130 figs

All ready for undercoating ... ... .... ... if only the weather would improve.

Have no clue what this about but they, I finished a unit of 20 kitbashed elven soldiers for Oathmark. A pretty fast job fŲr me using a uniform set of colours and then applying some old flesh wash and Drakenhof Nightshade on armour and in some folds.

Got pretty satisfied
Title: Re: The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club ...
Post by: Mathi Alfblut on November 22, 2020, 01:54:13 PM
Must add that I did three painting and modelling sessions in total this week.

My elven Oathmark force made up of newly kitbashed stuff aswell as stuff that has been dormant.

I have now, since Corona kicked of, made 10 Daughters of Av Avelorn to be used as elven archers, 10 White Lions to be used as elven Linebreakers and now 20 kitbashed sword and shield elves as elven soldiers.
I already have spear elves aplenty and lots of more archer model and ranger style models, wood elves and high elves.

I am going to use my wardancers as Pathguards and the dryads with the rules for elven hunting hound. My Orion model can be used as a Wulvern.

I did sell my ballistas so I need to get a new model for that.

Oh, Oathmark. Have not played but it has triggered my fantasy love again. Does not really work with Empire due to the Dark age settings.

BUT how about an army from Sigmars time? Just saying

Iíve only painted skaven and some beastmen in terms of chaos. Looking forward to adding these guys and critters to my skaven/beastmen/chaos combined army.
Not sure if I will ever have an aligned chaos army in the full. I would like to add a shaggoth at some point.

Is that the fantasy equivalent of Saga?

Post by: Midaski on November 23, 2020, 12:18:20 PM
No - Oathmark is a newish game where you create your own 'kingdom' and can basically have whatever units you like from different races.
It's a 'unit' game like Fantasy.

It is therefore pretty inclusive - as you could have an elven kingdom but with a human unit of spearmen and a goblin unit of archers for example.

The SAGA fantasy version is called SAGA Age of Magic


Oh and I would disagree with Mathi a bit about Empire in Oathmark.
Most of the basic human units will be usable - but no black powder.

Some friends have motivated me to forget them for a while though and finish my entry for the Massive Voodoo Challenge 2020 I had already given up anyway.

Here's what I painted on Sunday:

No, it's the usual plastic stuff. I just painted them that way, with reflections according to their location with respect to the coronavirus, and gloss finish.

Off to a good start this week.

Sunday - more work on figures - a few separate from the main batches last week, where I had either glued a weapon or arm to a model, or done a weapon swap, or some minor conversion.
I had texture based them but they needed some greenstuff to tidy up the joins.

I also started on the 4Ground 'Blacksmiths' building that came with the starter box for Dead Man's Hand I got last week.
You may remember I said they were excellent value at £40 with over £70 of goods if bought separately inside; well it was still good but not quite as good as I thought.

Monday
I discovered that the free building was from their Camptown 28mm set - basically the sides and roof is a frame with wet wipes (which you soak in PVA) stretched over the frames - a sort of cross between a timber building and a tent.

I think that is not for me - I happen to have quite a lot of wooden coffee stirrers that I can use for planking the sides and roof. - So some cutting and gluing to do.

Still interesting searching on the website for it, I found 4Ground have a 25% Black Friday Sale, and I am very tempted by their Wild West Legends buildings and trains sets - a tad bigger at 32mm which means 25mm based minis will go through the doors and aisles.
My 'western' scenery is coming along and you can't have a town without a railroad can you.

A 1 Litre tub of Biostrip20 turned up and I will be testing that out soon - I have some metal GW figs which have been soaking in Simple Green for a month or two, with little effect, so I will try the new stuff on them.

I also got a couple of hundred plain round 25mm bases turn up as well, ready for some FIW and War of 1812 figs due anytime.

The 18 models I 'fixed' yesterday have now been tidied up and added to the 'awaiting undercoat' box.
 
... ... .... and it's not even 4.30pm here yet?   :biggriin:

I do need to take and load a few photos - have got out of the habit.

Well, they would be usable but have the wrong look.

Yes I understand what you mean - but Oathmark is still Fantasy, and I always found the GW world a mix of eras. The Empire had the Renaissance Landsknecht look with frilly shirts and puff and slash, but the poorer provinces quite often had an earlier feel.

Middenland could be very Dark Ages and barbarian, and that's before you look at Bretonnian with its medieval themes.

I agree some Greatswords would seem out of place, but I have more 'peasant' looking archers and spearmen that I could use in historical Dark Ages games.

I also sense from the facebook page that those following have an inclusive attitude, and there is not the competitive streaks sometimes associated with WHFB.

Started preparing my 20 odd late roman soldiers for use as human warriors in Oathmark. Will be interesting to make them all look like a unit.
Armoured figs goes in the front ranks. Luckily, 12 wear armour. Swords drawn also in the front ranks since human warriors are defined as having hand weapons, shields and heavy armour.
The guys with armour that are meant to hold spears I give short spears meant to represent javelins and in the rear rank I have some unarmoured dudes throwing javelins and shooting bows.

I think they will look great.

Opened up and sorted down thru my new F&IW figures from the Brigade kickstarter.  Quite the selection.  Got more F&I War figures than I know what to do with now.  I will add these to the one's purchased last Christmas from the other guy ... AW Miniatures.  I had also picked up a Napoleonic Spanish General on foot, and a half dozen Spanish militia cavalry for future Napoleonic project.  And I sorted some AWI Brit Lights and Continentals that I picked up from Brigade's last kickstarter as well.

So as I can't do much remodeling work currently I actually did some hobby stuff. Switching over my Kislev Winged Lancers to the very nice Fireforge Northmen Horses. Assembled 3 horses today and damn I hate putting together horses more so than painting them I think.

Now as to the Northmen Riders, I suppose I could make them up as the Border Prince stradiots I've thought of adding for a while and use old horses for them.

Ok Let's tidy up last week.

Tuesday - Day off - Wedding Anniversary and No1Son's birthday.
Spent the day reminding the wife how lucky she has been for the last 36 years.  :engel:

Wednesday.
Bit of greenstuffing - bit of cleaning up textured bases.

Thursday:
My Oathmark - Oathbreakers rules supplement turned up, so I had a little read - won't be having any Undead units so not overly interested in it, but need to know what the opposition might be up to.   :closed-eyes:

Friday - too busy sorting out football for when lockdown ends next/this week - Dec 2nd.

Saturday.    WhooHoo and other train noises - my 4Ground order turned up

AND my KS This Very Ground !!!   :biggriin:
So a super Saturday - checked off the figures whilst watching 4 games of soccer one after the other - spread over probably the same amount of time as a single American Football borefest .... .... .... ...  :engel:

So another 5-Day week.

Been dabbling with the lasercut building I got in the Dead Man's Hand box.

As I mentioned it is front and then has framed sides and rear and roof and is supposed to have wipes glued over it as a tent-like structure.

I have glued the walls and roof, and am also doing the forge part of the kit, but I wait for the pva glue to dry, so it is taking some time.
In between I have been looking through the This Very Ground rulebook (same as GP has), and doing odd repair jobs and odds and ends.

I suspect this evening it will be around the same amount of time I can spend on the warband. The purple is done on all the figures and some leathery parts are already done.

And today, Wednesday - more gluing - and it's not even lunchtime yet. 
So busy with the PVA that cannot even be bothered to go out and celebrate the end of lockdown.   :engel:

Sounds like this is going to be fun!  And updating above! :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

I'm considering setting up a board game for some solitaire play.  I purchased a boxed game on sale from an Italian company as part of a promo during an online gaming convention earlier this year.  It is called "Braccio da Montone", and put out by CIES Edizioni.  It has two game boards, one for the battle of Sant' Egidio in 1416 and the other for the battle of L'Aquila in 1424 where Braccio met his end as a mercenary commander back then.  The game boards are relatively low key, but attractive.  The pieces are bright, and so they will go well on top of the less brilliant colors for the boards.    The rules looks relatively simple, and I will need to read those and then move the idea forward.
Title: Re: The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club ...
Post by: GamesPoet on December 04, 2020, 02:14:42 AM
As it turns out, I cleared a spot on my gaming table and laid out the map board for the Battle of Sant' Egidio.  Then I popped out all the pieces for this scenario and placed them on the setup charts.  Looks like Carlo Malatesta's army sets up first, and then Braccio's.  It looks like  this first game will be a decent one for tryin out the rules.

Also reviewed the rules, and found that in the back there is a 5 and a half page historical article on Braccio from his birth to his death and giving a decent write up of his various political and military exploits.  This is the kind of information rarely available in English and so having it as part of these board games is a big plus! :icon_biggrin: :::cheers:::

Will being reading the rules next.

Title: Re: The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club ...
Post by: GamesPoet on December 04, 2020, 03:09:31 AM
Not really.  But I started playing military board games against myself since my grammar school years.  And being able to read the historical write up in the back of the rules really ahs me enthusiastic about giving it a go.

I just recently received a board game called "Chancellorsville", which was Stonewall Jackson's last fight, and one of Lee's most impressive victories.  This game does have a solitaire system, and I'm looking forward to giving it a go, although a nephew and I have been talking about it recently, because it has a hidden movement system where there are two smaller maps on the board where hidden movement is conducted behind screens.

Did some reading of the rules at lunchtime today, and they have some interesting ideas to reflect the ways that the armies of the time seem to have operated.  Plus the rules seem to be focused on command and control, as well as elements of troop condition being very important.  Going to read further after dinner. :icon_cool:

An interesting read so far on the rules, definitely some different concepts involved with Braccio da Montone (BdM).  I think there a bit more detailed than I first understood, yet perhaps that because the command and control is just different.  I'll have to get them into action at some point to perhaps better digest.  Imagining once this happens, the rules might be easily convertible into a miniatures game as well. :icon_cool:

Got in some more reading of those BdM rules, and more to go, yet enjoying so far.  It's one of those things where I'm sure I'll have to refer to them a good bit when I eventually give the game a go.

I'm really liking the idea that these could be turn into a miniatures game.  Some adjustments will definitely need to be made, yet really liking the idea of perhaps creating a set of miniature rules that reflect this late medieval to early renaissance period in Italy.

Last week I went through the entire gallery of the MV Challenge 2020 on three days in a row to admire the awesomeness of all 271 entries and leave comments to vote or just let other participants know I like their work and why.

Also got in some hobby time today. Lord of the Rings this time, three Urukhai heroes, an Isengard troll, a peasant, three dogs and the fellowship. So far I have removed the mould lines and prepared the bases.

Post by: Midaski on December 06, 2020, 09:50:30 PM
Right - first time I think that I am claiming a 7-day week

Thurs, Friday and Saturday, I have been working on my Wild West Buildings and making a new one from scratch with matchsticks and coffee stirrers.

Biggest problem at the moment is cutting the stirrers to length for planking - a hobby saw is hard work as the stirrer is quite hard to keep steady.
Using a sharp craft knife is tough on the fingers applying the pressure.

I have glued flooring across joists straight on one edge with the other end hanging over - and tomorrow I am going to get the dremel out and see if I can gently trim off the excess.



Sunday - first day of the new week.

More construction today on the aforementioned buildings, and I opened a couple of parcels.  :closed-eyes:

I bought some Fireforge Druzhina cavalry in a NorthStar sale at around 40% off - resin but very nice.
I also got some 4Ground stuff at 25% off and in multi-set packs that will bring some 'transport' to my wild west scenery.

Title: Re: The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club ...
Post by: S.O.F on December 06, 2020, 11:17:41 PM
Right I set about reorganizing things in the hobby section which has been moved around a lot in the remodeling this summer, sadly bound to move again when that floor gets done but the first move was slap dash to get shit done. But further I managed to assemble 3 zombies seeing how well those Fireforge Zombie and GW zombies work together and the answer is reasonably well.

Got in my third day for the week.  There is a state wide hobby association in Maine, and we had a membership meeting via Zoom.  With conventions canceled, as well as Game days, I hadn't seen any of these folks since the holiday party last January.  We reviewed who was running for office positions, and quite a bit about upcoming possible activities and events.  It was a good way for our group to end the year, and start getting ready for next year.

Sounds like the perfect job - modelling life size figures and getting paid for it.

You're just jealous GP


I will update so far:

Monday - nothing
Tuesday - nothing 
Wednesday - opened a parcel with a hobby magnifying set of glasses. Fantastic!
                  Either normal spectacles arms over the ears, or elasticated band round the head.
                  5 Separate different magnification sets of lens 1.00 to 3.5 magnification.
                  Built-in adjustable light with 2 strengths and USB rechargeable.
                  Lens and light have adjustable angles.
                  ... ... and some more buildings work

                  Then I went mad and ordered a couple of other bits from Facebook ads - they have me sussed.  :engel:
                  The Folding Worktable that the original supplier has still not managed to deliver, I found elsewhere and despite the original outfit telling me it was no longer available, the new order confirmation looks remarkably like the same chinese outfit.
I have until February to claim my money back from Paypal from the first one, and the second one should be here by then.

Then I bought a little table saw, with a circular saw. I have normal saws, hacksaws and hobby saws and none of them can cut a neat straight line through 2mm board or small bits of wood.

Thursday - New Frostgrave supplement - The Red King - arrived.  Had a bit of a read - looks good.
                 Cut and trimmed some more 2mm mdf bases for buildings outside in the garden - bloody cold!  :icon_twisted:

Friday -   Not much but did build a wall frame for a new building.

So 4 days so far and ...... ......

With Soccer Saturday and Soccer Sunday to come I hope to have a hobbytastic weekend

No well under £80 for the 3 items.

Plus I retired at just the right time 3 years ago.
Good rates on my private pension, decent state pension and no other vices apart from miniatures.

I also started to get some interest in Saga, the historical part. Mostly because I know what I will get for Christmas :-) A 40 or 50 old metal models from Prince August miniatures that my wife bought on Vinted.

I've played a friend's rule system for Vikings and Saxons that uses Saga as one of two systems for the foundation of his rules.  It was more heavily based off of Saga, and it did seem to be a decent system to play.  I like historical gaming, and hope you enjoy! :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

Poor week so far:

Sunday - yes
Monday - zilch
Tuesday - nix
Wednesday - got a package of Cloaked Halflings from a Midlam KS - opened them up - cleaned them up - bought 2 sets so looked at conversion options.

Today - already done a little bit of 'plank creating' from coffee stirrers.

However it does amaze me that despite a coffee stirrer being a mere 3/16ths of an inch, I regularly fail to cut the curved end off at a right angle!  :icon_twisted:

... ... so 3 days of very low intensity hobbying for me so far.

Just today to add to my total this week.

Been struggling with getting doors to work on my Wild West building.
Tried brass rod inside a 'hinge' of plastic tubing but not convinced.

Currently trying another option and waiting for pva glue to dry to see if it works.

I spent all evenings, after putting my son to bed, from monday until saturday cleaning moldlines and bases of 50 dreadspears and 40 darkshards. Watched TV with my wife while hobbying  :happy:
 

not looking forward to add sand to all of them, but it has to be done before priming...  :cry:

Cleaned the last 20 darkshards from moldlines and removed the previous basing on sunday! 60 darkshards and 50 dreadspears saved from the horrors of moldlines (that they have had since production in 1999)  in 1 week!  :::cheers:::

 Eagerly awaiting christmas! But only half of my new models have reached my doorstep... Dreading the horror that is the swedish mail delivery (Postnord) and where my new dragonlord, 30 corsairs, another 20ish crossbows, custom lord on foot and bsb have ended up  :cry:
Sent a month ago, but no sign of them... May their black ark not have been sunk...

Bought a box of Frostgrave female soldiers on tuesday and mixed ten of them up with the Oathmark humans.
Om Wendesday I started to assemble them all into 20 archers and 20 soldiers.

I also work on basing my 5 metal Haradrim riders on 25◊50 bases and make them into Mounted Rangers fŲr Oathmark.

My brother in law gifted me his Island of Blood on Christmas, only missing 3 clanrats.

Looks like it's all sorts of elves on the painting shelf next year.

Cleaned moldlines and assembled all the elves on the 24. Planning on selling the rats and get some more high elf seaguards, white lions and another 10 swordmasters. Around 1200 points and I can finally use the bitz I have had over from using the star dragon as mount for Karl Franz to build a cool general for the force.

That sounds awesome! That was a great starter set.

After a couple of days of hobbying this week I finished my B2 Battle droids. My Star wars stuff is all painted, for now.

I'll be focusing on Chaos Adversaries for Warhammer Quest for the next few months.

Sold the rats from IOB, sold some magiccards and boom! More elves coming in high!  :roll:
30 lothern seaguards, another 24 (!) swordmasters, 5 shadowwarriors,  skycutter, 1 eagle, 1 frost phoenix, a bunch of characters including Korhil, Prince Althran on foot and Caradryan, 1 lion chariot and 2 tiranoc chariots, another dark elf dragon (still waiting for the first one) and 20 archers. Some minis are painted and some will be repainted. I'm insane xD

Now watching Star wars and building the shadowstalker warband.

This week:
Sunday, Wensday, Friday & Saturday: I continued working on the warband, they didn't get finished for Christmas...

We did visit Ikea on Thuesday and I bought closet to organize the working station. I also had to adapt some electricity to put away all the extension cables. I'm happy this is done, now I have a place to put my airbrush.

Opened on Christmas a box that I received from a kickstarter.  It is a kit for a lovely looking Spanish Windmill.  Won't count it as hobbying, just opened a box, but this is going to be good!

Looks like nothing for me all week, didn't even update this thread here. :icon_wink: :icon_lol:

And seems like a minimal number of folks did something as well.  Let me know if I missed anything!

Didn't get anything done last week, at least hobbywise. Managed to solve a few covid-19 related problems instead and will move into a smaller flat in a few weeks. Challenge accepted to give away as much as possible and live a much simpler and more minimalist life.  :happy:

Today was a good start into the new hobby week though. I managed to remove mould lines from a few hobbits and Gandalf, prepared their bases, painted the bases of three Uruk-hai heroes - Lurtz, Uglķk and VraskŻ - and added a first layer to their skin.

Geez they were fiddly.... damn cloaks and stupid hairdesign. The weakest point of the hair is where they attached it to the sprue...  :x

Very busy decluttering and giving stuff away I don't want to take with me when we move. So grateful there are a lot of Free your stuff groups on Facebook so that I didn't have to throw things away that can still be useful for others.

Hobbywise, I managed to declutter and pack my hobbystuff today. Pretty satisfied that I only needed two moving boxes (30 x 60 cm, including everything I need for building scenery).

Also continued commission work, only small progress on the Uruk-hai today though.

Agreed. Finally achieved results but thru a hugely annoying process that I guarantee will kill any desire to show pics at all. Doesnít effect the other site at all. Just appeared here yesterday

Have spent lots of time trading and selling models and have now secured and glued a unit of 25 6th executioners! Finally! Also a few more heroes, the old cauldron, another reaper bolt thrower, 10 phoenixguards, 5 reavers and 2 eagle eye bolt throwers for my High Elves. Glueing and preparing for priming, although it will have to wait until mars/april. Don't have a garage to use.

Now I have over 300 elves to paint...  :Ohmy:

Pile of shame almost at zero. Canít be arsed to base my chaos yet so Iím messing around with my old BFG thingies. Most of them are broken off the stands so Iím redrilling and filing down the stems to mount them again.
Only ever played 1 game of BFG but I always liked the idea. Never actually painted anything either. Got some trades and the main fleet is still in a box somewhere. Might try something with em but may not as well.

Well... things kinda snowballed... a lot...  :icon_mrgreen: :icon_mrgreen: :icon_mrgreen:
Dark elves
80 darkshards
50 dreadspears
+ about 30 unbuilt coreelves
39 black guards
29 executioners
Dreadlord on dragon and on foot
Morathi on foot
Cauldron 6th with sorceress ( no witch elves)
9 The shadowstalker warband
BSB
3 reaper bolt throwers
Shadowblade                                  244 models  :Ohmy:   4-5k in 8th

and then the High elves, that started on december 24 with the island of blood... then got crazy...
50 lothern seaguard
36 swordmasters
19 archers
10 reavers
10 phoenixgaurd (need at least 10 more)
2 mages
5 or 8 various characters
2 bolt throwers
1 frostphoenix
1 eagle
1 lion chariot
2 tiranoc chariots,  bits missing for crew...                       144 models, about 2 - 3k points

144 + 244 = 388... with crew we're closer to 400 elves...  :ph34r:

But! Almost everything were traded or bought with money from selling other stuff. So massive savings compared to buying new.

Ok, a little update from me!
Last week I managed to get 4 evenings of hobby time. In that time I finished some mercenaries for Mordheim.
The empire knight with his great mustache was the most enjoyable to paint, the limited edition Mordheim figure (Luthor Wolfenbaume) was a little difficult because of the amount of details on the figure!

This week started with cleaning out my different bits bags and storage boxes. Now I have one box with sorted bits for Fantasy and soon one for the 40k part of my collection.

Packing models I've sold tonight and boxing up my models.

Looks like me and my family has to move to a different apartment as soon as possible. Mould in the apartment building (didn't know that when we moved in in late 2019) and that's likely the reason for why I've been coughing and snoring alot the last year, starting when I were on parental leave and spent a lot of time at home. 4 test monthly for covid since september, always negative.

plus side, balcony and a small yard to prime minis in.

Not much hobby time for me so far this week. Although I did cut the legs off an old pair of trousers and make them into token/dice bags, so there's that.

I almost wrote that I converted an old pair of pants into a dice bag, but I understand the Brits here might get the wrong idea from that...

Started to get a bit squirrelly with this new lock down so I dug out 5 old ones and fixed a tail and put them on bases. Going to Dragon Rampant for lack of an AoS home. Picture to follow as they are in the garage base coated and stinking.
Also dug out an old 40K box and found 2 more complete lemun Russ tanks. I can add them to my existing one for a squad of 3. Thought my son had used 2 of them in his battle wagon conversion back in the days when he used to build and I would paint. The good old days.
Turns out he used one and found more bits to make it look like he used 2. The only reason I never finished them thinking it would not make the squad.  All this time it was just waiting for the right moment.

Thatís a good question. Iím not sure where these will fit in. I had the in the bits bin - 4 plastic and 1 metal - and I just donít have it in me yet to tackle the chaos so these were dragged in. Maybe Dragon Rampant as a wild creature unit - that may bite (😺)

I hear ya on the idea of not having it for some projects, and encounter that a good bit.  Whatever you do with the Chaos dudes for Warcry, go slow, don't rush them.  You're capable of taking them on at some point, although only when ready.

Sometimes for me it is about figuring out how I'm going to take a project on from what to paint, and whether or not I'm energetic enough to get going.  These kinds of things happen when I'm in the middle of a projects as well.

Going at the lemun Russ again.
My son called yesterday and said he had ordered the slaves to Darkness starter set yesterday and they I should prepare for a battle soon.
The set comes with a lord on a dinosaur type ride. Beautiful model, 5 warrior knights and 10 warriors on foot. He says itís going to be undivided so Iíll give him the wary cry bands and a soul Grinder. 1110 points to start and an actual opponent. Good stuff

He liked tau in 40K and because we never had a chaos army in wfb, he chose the new chaos out of AoS. He loves the new look so went with that out of the blue so now the warcry bands will team up nicely with them

I will keep my updates in this thread, it feels better in here :-)
Ok, last week from 18/01 until 24/01:
I managed to paint 5 days out of 7. I finished a Mordheim Witch, a 40K Imperial Priest with Chainsaw and I'm nearly done with a Rackham wizard which is started a long time ago. I'm also painting up an old Fantasy Knight, an uruk-hai and I started with and Troll for AoS.

This weeks program. Normally I'm going to paint this evening and add some progress to said above figures.

I also ordered a new airbrush and some other parts and I will retry my airbrush adventures....

After a very long hobby crisis and doing almost nothing on the hobby I recently started again (and feeling happy doing it)

Week 3 (doing the official calender week numbers) last week

Thursday January 21st
- Painted several contrast colors on 2 Blightlord Terminators
Friday January 22nd
-Painted more contrast colors and the first metalic on 2 Blightlord Terminators and started building up the goo on the base


Nothing yet on week 4, but I sure want to do something this week.

I've always wanted to get an airbrush and give it a go.  Perhaps one day.
Well the strange, or maybe just unfortunate thing is, that I have an airbrush with a rather good compressor for around 10 years. I only didn't have the place to keep it on the workbench whole the time.
And now that I have may dedicated spot, with some more possibilities, the pistol isn't that good any more due to age and not being used. The compressor still does what it has to do :-) (A Sparmax, around 250 euro's back in the day).
So I hope that I can learn the craft again, or better with my new one and a dedicated place instead of a little spot in the living room.

I can do that! Disregard the godawful basing. I think I have progressed a bit in the right direction since then. I was in a supreme hurry for some reason at the time (was only 4 years ago). That flamer is about 11 years old and the basing was better then.  Then the sabbatical low and a rise in the last year again lol

Sunday: putting high and dark elves into my glass cabinet. So instead of watching my already painted armies, I shall see my progress this year :)

If organizing counts I managed to separate a bunch of stuff out that had gotten mixed up during remodeling. Still trying to find a few bits but all 24 Winged Lancers/Gryphon Legion are accounted for.

Ok, I lost track of my painting and hobby evenings last week. I did a lot of work on my Imperial Guard tanks. I hope to get my 10 tanks ready, so I can prime them when the weather gets better.
I'm adding lost of stuff to the tank, some needed stripping and repairing, but we're getting their.

I will also try the hairspray methode on these, so after the black primer, I will paint most of the model brown, to give it the look of a anti-rust primer. Then I will paint them Panzer Grey like the early German tanks, they are for the Steel Legion after all.

All elves up in  the cabinett. Also some nurgle and khorne boys. And finally started to upload pics to my public instagram. Close-ups of units follow when I have some spare time and the light's still good. Hope this will keep the motivation going :)

Looking good! How did you burn through all those DE so fast ? 😺

only 20 black guards, 2 reaper bolt throwers and the 2 hydras were painted by previous owner. Hydras got their paint chipped in shipping and all heads broke  :icon_cry: (these 2 are all metal) so have to repaint them. The high elves are also painted by previous owners. Thinking of red and gold for HE, or something else than blue/white. Suggestions?  :happy:

Thinking of doing 2 1000 points list, 1 HE and one DE,  and painting the 2 armies at the same time. Or just blow through the DE first.

Added pics of testmini for DEspears and start of the black guards.

I have a bunch of High Elfs that need painting.  Some day.  And thinking I might do them in aqua and red, although haven't finalized.

However, red and gold/yellow(?) could look slicingly different.  I was going to saying smashingly, yet that doesn't strike me as being a finesse sort of term for High Elfs.

Saw this army when googling and think it looks nice and a break from blue and white.

Update for tuesday: made 2 army list for DE and HE starting at 1000points 8th and adding 500 points until the DE max out at 4k and HE at 3k. Building them after that list.

Wednesday: repaing borken models and painting the black guards.

Almost finished the 2nd punisher. So I threw my armoured column together for fun. I guess this is why armoured division commanders thought they were unbeatable until they got beaten.

What is the proper defensive procedure to follow when you see these babies roll into town.

A) shit yourself and pray to the now deaf emperor and run like a rabbit?
B) affix your bayonet and charge?
C) calmly prioritize targets and get the job done?

I donít think C is an option frankly.

Are the tanks for your Space Wolfs?  The other day when I ordered a box of the space marines with Mark III armor, I also bought my first Imperial Guard figures with a tank like the smaller ones in your picture, and a heavy weapon team ... some sort of starter set for IG is in route.

I'd dropped 40K since shortly after 5th edition was over.  More a time, space, and energy issue then anything else, although I've heard the successive editions had their issues.  Hoping 9th is going to be fun.  Need to clear off my game table from all the freaking projects and get in a game some day ... lol.  One that gets rolling, will probably keep games to small point totals, or maybe some Kill Team.  Build up from the latter ... I have Orks up the gazoot, but need to paint some Space Marines, Tau, Necrons.  When I was first interested back a ways, had imagined doing up a solar system of some planets with different terrain types, and setting up some sort of story line to go with the figures.  My mind has been moving in that direction again, yet we'll see.  So many interests with limited time.

Last week I managed three days of hobbying. I worked on some tanks, filled some gaps and tried my hands on some conversions / stowage of the vehicle.
I now still have to strip a basilisk and an sentinel. Work continues, but not at a great peace.

For this week, I did some assembly yesteday evening of a hydra-flak tank.

Ok, some small updates. I didn't get much done, due to some real life interference.
Last week:
I worked further on the tanks, stripping and repairing were needed. I did this on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
I'm really happy with the combination of 95į cleaning alcohol and a sonic cleaner to strip paint of miniatures.
I also made some miniatures wash, with the Mid Winters Mini's recipe. Curious how this will workout.

This week:
It started with two days of hobbying. On monday I finally managed to get the last paint of the secondhand Basilisk. I don't know what that guy used to paint his miniatures, but it was a nightmare!
There were also some track parts missing, which I recasted yesterday with some blue stuff from Greenstuff Worlds. I think I was a little to hasty, because I lost some details.

This evening I will assemble the tank and reattached the missing track parts.
Then friday they will get a nice coat of black primer, some dark brown base coat and a coat of hairspray, to create chipping in the final painting stages.

Last week, it came down to 4 nights of hobbying. I didn't get time to primer the tanks on friday, nor in the weekend, so I hope to get that done today.
On the other hand, I worked a little bit more on 3 figures left on my painting table, which stood their for like 8 months, nearly finished.

This week:
I will start this afternoon with some spray painting hopefully. And then we will see what it will bring :-)

 :icon_eek: Are you priming inside today?  It can't be warmer up there than it is down here for priming outside. :icon_wink:

However, I got my eye on this upcoming Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Temps down here are suppose to drift into the upper 50's and lower 60's, especially on Thursday.  Got a ton of priming I want to be doing, probably inside the hobby room, but with the windows open.  There are some where near 130 Wars of the Roses, perhaps even some Warcry scenery pieces, and I imagine a few other items as well, the latter including 5 Araby Dogs of War cavalry, and a new mounted crossbow figure to start a second set of 6.

I primed them in the garage. Still cold but I just canít handle the smell. I leave em for about 20 minutes then take them downstairs to dry properly. Most of the vocís are gone by then

Oh, that sounds good, and creative!

Yeah, the smell is garbage.  My hobby room leaks a bit of smell into the rest of the place even if the windows are open.  I'm hoping it gets warm enough to do it outside towards the end of the day on Thursday, and then bingo!  More projects to work on with paint.

Been unpacking hobby boxes this morning from last years move and putting them on shelves in my storage room out the back of my kitchen.  Will be unbagging yesterday's purchases, and putting them where they belong next.

Might give a go to some work on the step pyramid if I am feeling up to it, but got to clear a spot to get going on it.  Going to take pictures as I go for eventual posting her at some point.

With your "spray painting", do you mean priming or air brush?
I did both. Black undercoat, dark brown as a "anti rust" primer, hairspray and matt varnish, was al done with rattle-cans.
The panzergrey primer and first highlight, I did with an airbrush.
First time since long that I used an airbrush pistol. It was a lot of fun, but I need a lot more practice...
I also tried my hand on some airbrushing of "normal' figures. Which was interesting and I might use it more in the future!
I also need to learn to do some better work on taping of thing that doesn't need to be sprayed / painted.

You can add 3 days of hobbying for me last week. And I will try to finish the first tank this week and post some pictures of it on here.

Ok, will do Novogord, and congrats on your effort! :::cheers:::

Some of my unboxing got delayed yesterday as I began inventorying the Warhammer stuff on my shelves.  Not sure how far that effort will go, but I'd been wanting to do this for a long time, and now at least it has been started.  This also kept me from getting a start on the step pyramid scenery.  With Thursday being forecast to be in the 60s, need to prep for some spray priming at some point before that day.

But at the moment I'm following a webbinar and it isn't that interesting...

Been out and about today.  Visited a nephew working on his Lizard army, and he's making good progress gluing together a unit of mounted lizards, and separating out all the bits into bins.  Also picked up some spray primer for scenery and figures, a new pair of goggles for when priming, new drill bits for magnets, some scenery grasses for bases, a foam sculpting tool to add to my other such tools, a couple of bit boxes, and a box of Warcry Agents of Chaos dice.

The latter are also available for the other 3 groupings, Order, Destruction, Death, and you get 16 dice in 3 colors.  The Chaos ones have 6 dice in a dull red (perhaps Khorne or Wordbearer), 6 dice in a marbelized multi gray, and 4 dice with a marbelized salmon.  They come inside a small plastic case, and this is tucked inside a nifty little Warcry colored box, and I really like the art work, too.

I still got to do something more hobby oriented, although need to get dinner first!

Was a busy week with late night meetings, feel ill probably due to exhaustion so spent 2 days home from work just watching The Office. Feel fine now.

Last sunday: started painting Morathi
Saturday (yesterday) : magnetized an entire High elf army (40 seaguards, 20 white lions, 19 archers, 32 swordmasters, 10 phoenixguard, 6 shadow warriors, 10 reavers and 4 characters + 40 black guards and 19 executioners. Took ~ 4 hours? But soo nice to have done it :)
Sunday: painting more on Morathi.

So Iíve decided to split my skaven/beastmen army to skaven and beastmen. Im guessing itís going to take awhile to expand them to a good size each but I found this beast lord from a different game system and decided he was the one. He is oversized but I think thatís ok AoS style. I threw some warcry guys in for size comparison.

Sounds like a great double project. :icon_cool:

Most of my skaven are from the 8th edition starter set.  I have a few others, and may get more some day.

I have fewer beastmen, mostly from a "Black Box" that a store owner sold me on the cheap.  getting the Beastgrave starter set has given me a few more, and wouldn't mind buying others some day along the way.

However, also have a small boxed set somewhere from way back that I also picked up on sale, which has 1 chaos warrior, 2 beastmen, and 2 skaven,  if I recall correctly.  Currently it is hiding in an unpacked box.

Used an entire new can of chaos black primer today but got a lot of dark elves undercoated. In hindsight it was a bit windy, but had to sieze the opportunity to prime. Executioners needed a lot of spray, bloody impossible to get it to cover them nicely. Think I had to spray them 3 times to get ok coverage from all angles...

Anyhow, now I have this to choose from to paint (almost 100 minis):

24 executioners with command
20 darkshards with musicians (still have 40 not undercoated and even more in a box)
3 reaper bolt throwers wth crew
30 ish Dreadspears (still have 20 not undercoated)
2 metall 6th ed hydras with 4 handlers
BSB, Death haq, Shadowblade
The old cauldron of blood
The shadowstalker warband for Warcry, 9 models

No painting, but spending a lot of time looking for a place for my newly started community of all types of gamers (warhammer, magic the gathering, boardgames, videogames etc.) in my new home town. No organised activities outside of sports so took it upon myself to try and start something local. Just got some info today about a place where we can meet and play, free of charge so no rent which is huuuge!!!   :::cheers:::

Tuesday: cleaned up the free hand icons on my 6 first Dreadspears and did some work on a few movement trays.

Might get cracking on the next batch of dreadspears this week, another 15 to go before moving on to 20 darkshards. Hope to get lots of hobbytime over Easter, and eat chocolate! In bunnyshape!  :evil:

Sunday hobby! Started on 5 shields tonight and more paint and wash on my dreadspears. Freehand to be done next on shields, and washing of the skin and retouch the purple cloth on my deadly core elves.    :-D

Yes sir!    :::cheers:::

Next batch of 5 almost done! Did the free hand tonight and next time it's drybrush grey on bases, touch-up on shields, glue them on and voila, another 5 dreadspears done!

Got around 24 hours in on my Grimgor campaign over the last 2 weeks so burned myself out on it a bit again, but a nice break from painting!

Took some time tonight to do chainmail and other metal parts of the dreadspears. Never underestimate the results of even a short and casual painting session, even 30min gets results. Might get these done by sunday, not rushing but keeping up the pace :)

Also got 8 plastic archers and 6-7 militia in the mail from a friend, might start a Mordheim warband later on, or for Cities of Sigmar in Warcry  :::cheers:::

Just the handles to finish now 😺

Title: Re: The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club ...
Post by: GamesPoet on April 16, 2021, 01:27:18 AM
Giving the handles some definition is a good idea, and contemplating what might look good.  I've seen folks use various colors, saw one using blue, but that just seemed out of place, even though it contrasted decently.  Sometimes basic leather browns are good enough.

Mentioned before that your choice of using an actual flesh color to their skin was better the the light grayish white/even greenish white seen in so many other Iron Golems.  I think some folks are so busy trying to look like the GW paint version of these that they're forgetting basic ideas on contrast (even when they are using the "contrast" paints), instead of using their own style and making these figures look good.  I also think you darker red than so many of those folks trying to look fancy is working as well.

Perhaps since you used that warmer, if I recall Zandri Dust, as a primer, perhaps a mid tone brown would work nicely on the handles, although a darker than mid tone brown might also work to contrast with the flesh .  The idea being to get them to look like leather. Then use a mid tone brown wash that will darken the deeper lines, yet give the brown a deeper look as well.

Anyway, go with your gut. Worse that will happen is that we'll learn something. :::cheers:::

Definitely thought about the handles. I liked the blue handle but they certainly didnít turn out like I was thinking. I may go back and lighten the blue again. But then again, they may stay like this for good. The leather would have been the proper way to go and more realistic.

The blue handles came out ok, and I commented on how they tie in well with your W:AoS army on the other thread.

I'm still undecided on how I will paint my Iron Golems, and need to go back to planning and gluing my Corvus Cabal figures.  I'm getting itchy to give Warcry a go, and need to return to my scenery for that game as well.

By the way, I'm planning to get some matte medium so I can make some of that wash the one guy did on some 40K scenery, and use that when I do those plastic scenery pieces at some point.  I'm looking forward to having some so that there is enough at a low cost, and instead of using up all my GW wash that is more expensive than if I make some for my scenery.  I will be making brown wash so that it goes with my intended sandstone look for the Warcry scenery pieces.

Ya. What a bummer. Didn't even notice this till I was painting the arm. I really have no fluff answer to this as augments are basically not happening and especially on a bloody beast as well. Maybe I should fill his arm with green stuff.  It couldnít look worse hopefully.

Heard tell there was once a large dude at the College of Engineering in Altdorf that was experimenting with making metal sleeves.  Rumor has it that he was testing one in combat, although the army he hired on with was defeated by a Beastmen army.  Evidently a Beast Lord now owns the easy to slip on armor.  :icon_wink: :icon_eek: :icon_lol:

SteveB would be proud.

Trying to psych myself for more gluing of my Corvas Cabal, and then eventually pick Iron Golems, Beast dudes (probably not), or Splintered Fangs.

Of course there is also the list for Cities of Sigmar Empire that were provided in White Dwarf 456, with choices for dwarf and elf allies, too. :icon_wink:

Hello all,
I'm still around. I try to paint three evenings per week. But somehow I find it hard to photograph the things, sometimes very little, I've done and post them here.
I find the initiative very good and I hope that within a few weeks, I can be a little bit more active around here again.

Picked up my brush again tonight to work on my dreadspears.  :-)

Had a bit of a mental break down due to stress, lots of co-workers got sick and some of my closest friends had covid-19. Freaked me out so took a week of sick leave to find myself again, and now I'm back. Bottling up stuff works to a point, then when things slow down a bit I usually crash. Covid-19 got too close to me this time... rough year...  :icon_sad:

Heard through the grape vine that one of my sisters (the one who lied to me about getting the disease), and one of my brothers both having ongoing issues as a result of covid-19.  Sister seems to have a respiratory issue, brother has fatigue issues apparently multiple days each week. So as it turns out, I am not the only one in the family with lingering issues, although fortunately it seems mine aren't quite as bad as they were originally, and mostly fatigue towards the end of the week that sets in and doesn't go away just by sleeping, yet seems to have improved after I got  back to exercise and started walking again.  However, definitely been an increase in allergy issues which has been a total pain in the brain.

Painting some more today. Took next week off too, still getting angry/annoyed at little things so better to be at home than work right now. Going to do some outdoor walking next week, buy lunch and sit at some cliff watching the sea and listen to metal alone seems good right now. Selfish but made it until wave 4 in Sweden until it broke me. 

Hope we all can get back from this shit.

It has not been an easy time.  The numbers per day have come down here, although there seems to be a surge happening here as well.  The number of folks who are  making unhealthy choices seems to have increased, and the variant viruses are running amok.  My empathy continues for those who have been dieing or losing loved ones, and although this sort of thing has happened in history before, it is still so unfortunate.

However, we have hobbying!  I continue to get more done than if I was chasing a lady, and I am mentally preparing myself to maintain my hobbying with more activity beyond the public health issue.

Indeed we do, and thank Games workshop for it!   ::heretic:: ::heretic:: ::heretic::

With vaccination rapidly increasing, game time gets closer! My dad, aunt, her husband and my grandmother all got 1 or 2 doses now so the fear of losing them to covid has disappeared, when us younger ones get it we can meet again. Haven't seen them since last summer...

All thoughts to those who has in any way suffered from this or lost someone.

I really wish I got the hang of getting up images to the site. I do not know what services work these days.

I have been busy, busy so I have not been able to update but I have a 2500+ point army for Oathmark now and I have even built a catapult from scratch since I could not afford to buy one. It is not a smashing job but it does the job well enough.

Having actually served and fired full-sized replicas of roman war machines do come in handy on occasions.

Hi Mathi!
I opened a Wordpress account. No cash to do it. Take pics with the phone and have WP add them to its site (3G worth to start) and then copy there tag and paste it between the image brackets (below the bold button above) and thatís it. You can make a site as well with the WP account if you want as well

Three days for me so far this week. I have been working on some random models while I wait for better weather for priming.

This Orc Shaman will be part of a small Greenskins army.

Received the next batch of chaos. Discussed the colour schemes and I think we will go with the arid look to continue the untamed beasts theme. With AoS, the chaos do not have to fit in with the northern look as they have been all over the realms for millennia.
For the Karkadrak, my son said to look up the bearded dragon for a route lol. Also had an idea for a chaos objective made out of an old fastener to the left.

I take it your son doesn't enjoy painting.  I see some squigs in the background.

Wondering what the Vallejo "Thick Mud" is?  PLus are those Chaos models the most recent version?
Title: Re: The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club ...
Post by: Artobans Ghost on May 04, 2021, 04:32:56 PM
They are the new vhaos and I like em a lot. With the round bases, they can be a lot more dynamic. The 16 warriors coming are probably repackaged older models. The thick mud, I use to do basing for texture on a bigger scale. Cheaper than the astrogranite. I dry brush it with fenrisian blue and itís close to the astrogranite texture.
He doesnít like painting much due to an eye problem but has been watching slot of YouTube vids on ways to paint. The idoneth are next and I think heíll give them a crack. When I kick the bucket for the final time, he can get all the collection. Itís been a great way to maintain a shared bond as he assembled almost all the units save for the last bits that I have fought with.

Those new Chaos warriors do look good!  I look forward to seeing the 16 older models, too.

Regarding the mud, can you do up a base at some point and post it to see what it looks like before painting?

Lots of good, and some blah, painting videos available, good way to learn more.  And I get maintaining a bond/being connected, well done.

Finished the warlock, but suffering from almost constant headaches. Negative for covid, but stress is dangerous in the long run...

Maybe I should try that some time, paint one figure and then another.  Maybe just leaders or something like that.  Got too many rank and file for not dong them in batches currently.

It's a nice change of pace, but batching is the way for rank and file of units larger than 10. Got to mix in some warmachine with crews, heroes etc to not drown under the burden that is ranked infantry. Got 5 dreadspears to go and 20 darkshards before more fun units such as hydra, reaper bolt throwers, more characters. Also limiting the number of hordes in my elven armies to keep units smaller, 40+ white lions is cool but 20 feels enough. One horde each of seaguards and dreadspears is resonable. In my Empire army, all combat infantry units are 40-60 minis xD

Maybe The Old Worlds unit sizes are more like in 6th and 7, but combat rules stay more like 8th, nice to get to hit back and not just fold when charged.   

Right now, with my current mental health, focusing on one little mini and getting it done feels enough. Only got 6 more models to go for the warband now :)

After 4 days off, I have returned to a wee bit of hobbying.  Still determining what I am going to do for a new magnifier lamp for painting.  However, reset the game table with the scenario for the upcoming Huzzah! 2021: Hold the Line online convention.  Figures had to be rejoined from the last playtest, and then remeasured into their places.  I also did up a to do list for putting the finishing touches on a few of the units, like painting weapons, and doing some basing for some of the groups as well.

Sheesh.  It is already Saturday!

Got in some D-Day to Berlin on Thursday with a friend in Maine.  We play tested the start of his northern Battle of the Bulge scenario twice, the first going only through the first day, and the second going on through the second day.  It was a quite bit of some interesting gaming, although the Americans are very much on the defensive and getting it hurt bad, as they did at the time.

I'll be getting in some miniature figure inventory today, and some unboxing of packed boxes of figures as well.

This Past Week's Tally:

2 Days ... Artoban, Heinrich
3 Days ... GP

If I missed anything, then let me know! :::cheers:::

Title: Re: The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club ...
Post by: GamesPoet on May 30, 2021, 08:49:53 PM
Last night I got out a large half ridge scenery piece I've used for a Napoleonic layout, and more recently a hypothetical medieval scenario as well.  It had several issues with a lack of spray primer on some of the edges, and there was a portion of the flat side that must not have had enough glue covering it the first time, and so it needed to be re-primed a bit in that location.

Originally I used Army Painter's Desert Yellow, and this time I got out my Krylon Yellow Oats, and GW's Zandri Dust to compare all three.  The Desert Yellow was used on the scenery piece, no sense in messing it up with a different color.

And before this, I put all the Lion Rampant units on the edges of my hobby table, measured and mapped the terrain setup on a piece of paper for future use, removed the large hill/ridge in the center of the table, and then covered the whole green mat with a cut open cardboard box that I'd used under a recent painting of a elevated gardening platform.

After the large half ridge had been redone in places, I then tested out the 3 spray primers.  I already knew the Army Painter Desert Yellow was sort of like the WW2 German armor color called Dunkelgelb.  The  Krylon Yellow Oats was more of a lighter mustard yellow.  And  the GW Zandri Dust was more like a buff soft light brown/tan color, sort of like what I associate with the color used by some Continental troops during the American Revolution for their pants.

Spent a few hours inventorying my 40mm AWI figures.  Hadn't looked at most of them in a year and a half, and was sort of surprised at how many I have.  Getting ready to make a purchase that will include some F&IW Colonial Rangers to match up against my Coeur De Bois, and some woodland Indians with Rifles, too.  Going to pick up AWI artillery for both sides, and some more German Jagers, plus a few Highlanders.

Got in my 3rd day this afternoon playing Light Bobs wiht the author and his brother.  It was great!  So glad to return to this rules set.  I got 40mm figures and just purchased some to add to it, so I can be a bit more varied in my unit choices for creating games using these rules.  And  I love 40mm figures, love, love, love!

Had a day full of gardening, including fixing three issues with a rental tiller.  Total crud, especially in the heat and humidity.  However, got my new magnifying lamp, yet not sure the arm is long enough for my liking.  Need to  see if I can find a lamp with a longer arm, and if so will send this one back.  Regardless, might still try to get in some hobbying of some kind this evening, but we'll see.

Oh, and besides the lamp, also got a new set of 5 brushes by AIT Art, and they are Kolinsky Sable.  Looking forward to giving those a go, and wanting to save these for the good stuff, plus get some brush soap for proper care as well.

And I got some Plastruct glue ... this is the best and fastest stuff I've ever used on plastic.  A person can get it one their fingers, and it doesn't glue ones fingers together.  It works better than some quick super glues, but it is very quick so folks need to know what the want the figure to look like before gluing.  However, it is way better than sitting there waiting for the glue to set, as must happen with many super glues.

And I got 3 boxes of older space marines on sale at about 41.25 each ... 10 tactical, 6 devastators, and 5 assault marines.  These will all be made into figures for my own successor chapter that is charged with protecting my made up section of solar systems in the galaxy called the Meridien Cluster.

Getting a fair bit done actually. My fantasy group is starting a new campaign in our ongoing world. The ruins of an old dwarf hold (heavily hinted to be a chunk of Moria merged with part of Karak-Eight-Peaks) has been discovered by adventurers, and now everyone is marshalling to claim it for their own ends. My own dwarves are mustering an army to reclaim what they can. So I've spent the past few days writing up the campaign, planning things out and getting some painting done on my dawi.

So thats 4 days of work done there.

If we're counting ANY hobby time as well I also had my Lord of the Rings rpg day today, that would bring me up to 5.

Yesterday was spent reviewing the free downloads for Lasalle 2nd Edition.

Today I fit in a game of Light Bobs where we used a different command system than last week.  This provided an opportunity to see how the two systems compared, and it demonstrated that the die system is faster than the card system, and with the latter due to the size of the scenario we playtested last weekend and this weekend, we'll also have to add in more than one commander to make the scenario more playable using the card system.

And I received and started reviewing 2nd Edition Lasalle today as well.

Reminds me that I need to pick up Baron's Wars again and finish reviewing. Plus at some point want to read The Men Who Would Be Kings, another version of Lion Rampant for the Colonial era.

Got the 7th edition armybooks for dwarfs and high elves in the mail today! Bought a Orcs and Goblins 6th edition book from my brother. Trying to get any armybook I see, even if the condition of the books are a bit bad, they are almost 20 years old, but perfect for gaming!

Feeling a lot better, not been exhausted for some time now so taking up trading and buying minis again, to collect books and armies to try and teach others to play warhammer. Or just get insane amounts of minis xD

Been seeing lots of good comments regarding 6th edition books, and think I am going to start collecting them.  There is some great artwork that is faction specific, great fluff, rules aren't tough to digest.  I'm beginning to see 7th edition as the beginning of the end, especially when the army books started to get a bit more out of whack before 8th edition was released with all its build more horde armies and monsters approach.

With the rumors of WFB having all but stopped, I am hoping, but not expecting, that perhaps we might see the ability to use old figures with what ever the plans are for the potentially new system.  Not getting my hopes up though. :icon_wink:

However, we digress. :icon_lol:

Going for a mix of 6th and 7th, whatever is out on auctions and as long as I'm getting them cheap. Think there's a bigger difference in the 8th edtion books, and 6th or 7th works fine for just getting the stats, rules and to play. Still, trying to stay clear of the 7th edition Dark Elves and that abomination of 7th edition Deamons of Chaos. Those are just outright broken. 12 Power dice deamons?  :cry: :cry: :cry:

But for the right price?  :icon_lol:

Painted away today as my wife feelt a bit ill and my son went to his cousin. Also doing fun stuff like laundry, shopping groceries and cleaning.
Hope to have another 5 darkshards done tonight or tomorrow. Wash drying as I type this. 

Update, got the 5 darkshards all finished!  :::cheers:::

For sure ... 7th edition Dark Elfs and Daemons of Chaos were unbalanced with 7th ... and probably aimed at 8th.

helped 2 nieces and 1 nephew create some characters for my summer roleplaying game via Zoom with nieces and nephews.

Last years 4 characters are all likely returning ... human fighter, dark elf assassin, halfling thief, human ranger.

This years new characters ... Halfling cleric, human thief, elf magic user.

So it is likely going to be a 7 character party with a decent mix of classes.

Been reading the rules called Donnybrook which is a skirmish set of rules that can be used from the back half of the 16th century, and all the way into early years of the 18th century.  In other words, Middle Renaissance to early 18th century.

And I painted Khorne Red and Word Bearers Red on 2 each of 4 Perry 28mm Mercs, following up the Mephiston Red on 2 others further back.  These dudes will be a small group of bidowers for Lion Rampant, and Wars of the Roses or other early renaissance/late medieval games.

Then I started watching "Ironclad", and it seemed good enough not to be painting while I watched.

6 of 7 players showed for first roleplaying session of this summer.  We mostly just got some organizational stuff done for first half of Zoom meeting, and then we got started with the players starting to move across the Clothier's district where they live and know the most about the city.  They managed to avoid a group of the human mercenaries, and navigate around a small number of dark elf mercenaries. before we ran out of time and they reached the edge of the Clothier's district getting to the harbor area.  This gave the 3 new players a chance to see some of what roleplaying is about.

It feeling lonely at the W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club.

It's been really hot in Sweden so all painting time has been used to try to get my son to sleep. He has taken naps in the afternoon so then he's up late. The next few days should have a cooler weather so hope to get more time in to paint :D Haven't been online on this site for the whole week xD

Wednesday: picked up a painted set of the warcry terrain and 2 3d printed buildings.
Saturday: Making deals on 8th rule books, army books, 8th editon warhammer magic cards. Also sent away packages for trades and waiting for my models to turn up, 2 sets of Skull Pass dwarfes :)

And tonight ... roleplaying with 4 nephews and a niece ... the Ranger and wizard were missing, but the hobbit cleric, hobbit thief, human thief, dark elf assassin, and human fighter were present.

For those who might recall from last summer's sessions ... the party chased a thief into the sewers who'd stolen a merchant's log book and the merchant hired the party to find it, but the thief sold it to some rat humanoids (skaven), and a battle ensued between some skaven who'd bought the log book form the thief and his minions under the city.  Afterwards the party got permission to use the 10'x10' tower attached to a government warehouse for surveillance over the docks.

The party has now traveled across the clothier's district, taken turns with being on watch in the tower, and watched a battered ship limp into the harbor that they go to  investigate, and discover it was attacked by a rat ship and managed to escape the fight.  They finished the night deciding to split up for a visit to a market, and the other seeking more knowledge about what cargo was being carried while looking for any lodged cannonballs in the ship's hull.

More next week!

This week I finished 'prepping' (removing mould lines) the arms for all 30 of my plastic greatswords, have just last night filled and filed some of the little gaps on the torsos with liquid GS and am now working on everything that needs a bit of modelling nouse i.e. getting creative with cutting, filling, repositioning, weapon swaps etc. etc.

Will be attacking a little bit more this evening whilst the missus is out.

Last night - cracked on with some chopping and changing across my Empire command elements. Have assigned a few sets of arms and set about converting a few Standards to have new or slightly adapted poles.

Quite a bit of cutting and pinning which I haven't done in quite a while so was quietly pleased with the results because I'm normally crap at getting the holes and pins to line up straight.

I primed the 18 native Americans and the other 4 figures this morning.  This has turned into a side project, another one ... lol.  A friend of mine needs a dozen or so of these for a game he is hosting in September featuring a scenario for the Battle of Bennington during the Amer. Rev.  He doesn't have any Indians, and so I am painting my recently received ones from the Brigade Games FIW kickstarter #1, for him to be able to use.  The neat thing is that so many of these have muskets, which fits the era a good bit.

However, go in some research on late Napoleonic Peninsula War armies, and sorted thru an order of 28mm Perry metal French which was nicely packaged and in its entirety.  Getting ready to ship 3 units of 16 figures with bases, for someone else to paint, and just waiting to receive the bases before mailing.

I've found a painter in Canada that does a decent enough look to her figures for table top, and yes a woman.  At this stage of life I probably won't get to paint all the figures I'd like to do, and so going to pay someone else for some of them to be completed. Ironically I'll probably do the cavalry, and having her do some of my infantry, since I'll end up needing more of these anyway.

Got a bit done at last.

Tidied up bits of my little conversions with some liquid GS here and there, Green Stuffed some boots onto my Halberdier Champion which I always dread doing but I think it turned out alright actually (my green stuff is quite old so I don't think it's a soft and malleable as it should be!? :?) , and spent a good hour or so this weekend sorting my figure cases, consolidating what I have in where to make better use of the spaces and give units their 'forever homes' rather than just being stuck somewhere until a later date. Much better now, a lot fewer empty cells in my boxes.

I'm currently awaiting some resin bases and a work holder/vice before I can really crack on with the next bits because I need to saw some bits of brass for standards and polearms. Fingers crossed they'll turn up soon.

Got in a thin layer of gray paint on helmets and some armor here and there.  The white primer doesn't always go good with painting black on top of it, so I like to level up with a bit of gray first.  And then go with a metal color after the black.

On Friday, along with my purchase of the new Ork Combat Patrol box (it has deffkoptas ... I now have 13 or 14 of them, oh my! :icon_lol: ), and the newest Ork codex, I also picked up the three new base paints ... Thondia Brown, Hobgrot Hide, and Ork Flesh.  The new Brown was used this morning on 6 of the handguns for my "blue" 28mm Perry handgunner group, and although a bit dark, it does work nicely on a white primer, and contrasts well with the blues and the lighter brown of the shoes.  I'll probably use a more medium brown on the group  of 6 "red" handgunners soon. I also used the remaining brown on my palette for one Chinese Boxer's rifle too.  "There will be ..." more! :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

I'm still awaiting the missing components to be supplied for my work holder/vice thing so I can't do any of the cutting and sawing that I am wanting to at the moment.

In the meantime however I have not been sitting on my hands. Over the weekend I have assigned parts to all 6 of my Demigryph Knights following the latest 3 additions and tonight I'm going to have a play with my new Fuze Biostrip stuff to see how it strips paint of some old minis, if successful I'll also be doing my 9 newly acquired Nuln Ironsides too. Fingers crossed it doesn't affect the resin but I have heard that it works fine on all types of mini... time will tell...

My missing components finally turned up so the last couple of nights I have;

1. Amputated a metal, gauntleted sword hand from its arm and pinned onto a plastic arm,
2. Made a 'Blue Stuff' mould of a Greatsword kneepad and made a Green Stuff copy which is now on my Spearman champion,
3. Picked out heads and a few extra accessories for my swordsmen and halberdier champions.

Nothing drastic but it keeps things ticking along slowly :biggriin:

Used the new GW Hobgrot Hide color for a newer base look for 6 more handguns.  Not sure I like it, but will see how this develops when I get more detail painted.  Did the remaining paint on some boots for one of my AWI horsemen too, oh my!

Probably going to paint some more light gray next, as a base to work off of for doing white livery coats on the 6 blue handgunners.  That happens, and it'll be a good painting morning.

Over the course of the week I have finally figured out the arms for my spearman champion and the last 2 'alternative build' rank and file guys. I'm happy with the 2 spears, the last halberdier pose is a liiittle bit awkward but I think it works ok. Last things left to do this weekend are the Halberd Standard Bearer, finding a suitable arm for a single 'alt build' Greatsword and just tidying up some bits and bobs on another 2, little gaps in arm positions need pinning and filling in with greenstuff, little things like that. Once those are done, all my core plastic infantry units are set (except Militia & flaggies...) and I can start assigning heads, accessories and little extras across the board ::heretic::

In other news; my resin woodland and slate bases arrived from Aus so I've also been pairing off my second unit of Huntsmen with appropriate bases that sit well with their poses and positioning. Unfortunately I've found I don't have quite enough of the right heads that I needed for the Huntsmen so I may be getting creative again in the next few weekends to either make a few copies or bodge a couple of stand-ins.

All in all I think I've probably ticked off the 3 days in some capacity or another!

Started gluing together some of the French chasseurs a cheval, but shouldn't have started to do it when I was so tired.  Always a mistake.

Although I got a couple of scabbards glued to two bodies, broke a frickin scabbard, and couldn't even get the glue to stick between a metal bugle and a plastic body.  Such a pain.  Total crud.

Tuesday not as bad as Monday.

5 more horses glued for the Chasseurs, 6 more bodies clipped and flash removed, 6 more sword arms clipped flash needing removal.  Oh, and the Plastruct glue worked so well on plastic that I fixed the scabbard from yesterday with no problem, although the bugler remains without an arm currently.

Also, did a bit of hunting around for info on painting the 26th regiment.  Found a site that has lots of pictures/plates for tons of military units, and download one for the 26th Chasseurs. :icon_cool:

Last night I pinned the last of my Standard Bearer's together following his arm swap and also pinned a greatsword's arm too - just got a bit of green stuffing to do to plug the gaps and smooth out the joins.

I was also messing around with a few leftover bits and might have accidentally ended up forcing myself to have to start a second army! :-P I won't count that as progress though.

Every little bit helps.

I'm pushing myself to do even just wee bits of stuff this week to see if I can get a good start on painting that cavalry, maybe even finish them by the end of October.  There are 31 days, so might as well max the month out if possible. :icon_lol:

Got 2 more evenings with painting minis :D Finished up Shadowblade a few nights ago and tonight I started on my (hopefully last) batch of 10 dreadspears. 

Aiming to have 2000 points of Dark elves fully painted by the end of this month, 17 models to do.

Took the afternoon off and created a Napoleonic scenario from the first skirmish between French vanguard of the left flank, and Russian rearguard during the invasion of Russia 1812.  Got a 4"x6' map, plus pulled the orders of battle as a target for getting painted.  Already on the way with the French, but will need some Russians.

Made some minor conversions to 5 Chasseur figures, and glued on a bugle arm, sword arm, and standard bearing arm.  Used Locktite brand super glue for the three metal to plastic pieces, and seems to have worked very well.

So got out my cutting board for the converting effort, and found 9 different small miniature projects sitting on it.  :icon_lol:

And I just finished gluing on 5 plastic sword arms on to four troopers and the sapper.  So that means all 8 riders and their horses are ready for priming tomorrow.  Going to let the glue set over night, and then bingo, after priming they'll be ready to start painting.

Thinking of priming the riders in white to achieve a bright look to them, but doing the horses in whatever their primary color will be.

Simple can be good, and thus getting something done still happens without as much energy expended.

Unfortunately, I don't always have projects like that that come to mind when I'm too tired for much of anything.

I tend to have a few little bits on the go at once, usually at least one is nice, simple and non-messy task that I can do in the living room whilst sat in front of the TV with the missus. Anything messier involving drilling, filing, cutting etc. generally gets done upstairs at my desk, all on my lonesome :unsure:

Back to those 12 Perry 28mm mercenary handgunners. Tried a new method for painting armor, chain mail, helmets.  Had light grey first, followed by a black wash (Badab Black, remember that? :icon_eek: ).  Will let the wash dry over night, and then going to try dry brushing bolt gun on the smooth spots of armor with helmets, and the high spots of chain mail.  This way the black lining develops naturally, or at least that is the theory.

Last night I stripped paint off a few minis that arrived in the post last week. Those being;

- A classic metal drummer and standard bearer, they were mostly bare but just had a few bits clinging on in the recesses;
- Classic metal mortar and crew (the really old static base one), they were fully painted but are now fresh as a daisy;
- The new version of the General on foot that has the greatsword and stands on a broken wheel, he's just for conversion bits.

In other news; liquid GS used to smooth out and fill some little gaps here and there. Next steps are to use a bit of actual GS to fill and sculpt in lost detail on some of the bigger repositioned elements.

All the while the background task is ever rolling onwards - assigning a few heads to handgunners and crossbowmen, soon to be moving onto Greatswords and rank-and-file halberds, spears and swords. My soldiers are finally starting to look like soldiers and not just headless grey masses! :biggriin:

Sunday more painting of 28mm French Chasseurs.

Messed up on the bugler though, some how gave him a green coat instead of a red one.  A friend said it was due to aging. :icon_lol:

Anyway, took off the head and arm with bugle, glued it the arm to another body, and primed it this morning.  I will glue the head on next since it is partly painted.  The bugle arm was too, but need to get rid of that green paint. :icon_mrgreen:

Lancastrians with their new rules for Medieval battles.  Plus did some shopping with the vendors ... think I'm targeting some new road sections. And I picked up a signed copy of a print of a painting that shows 95th rifles skirmishing out in front of some British soldiers  during the Napoleonic wars. A few bits and bops at the flea market.

The back is hinged to the sides, and the sides collapse in on the back when the shelves aren't in place.  The shelves fit snuggly into the slots on the sides, and hold the sides open when sitting in place.  I can then use this for taking to hobby flea markets for selling books, figures, scenery, etc.

Took day off from work and visited friends for a game of "Twilight of the Soldier Kings" with AWI QRS.  What a hoot!

It was a quick play, we finished in 2 1/2 hours, and we used a scenario for the Battle of Camden, NC, not NJ.

Had a great afternoon!  :icon_biggrin: :::cheers:::

I painted all the bracers on my archers with Ironbreaker last night. That counts. Plus I did some painting on the fatigues of one of my Stargrave commandos, just to see how it'd look. Sadly it was too dark to get to all the spots.

Title: Re: The W-E At Least 3 Days Per Week Hobby Club ...
Post by: GamesPoet on December 21, 2021, 10:48:38 AM
The more I paint the easier and better some things become.  Find that being in the mood for learning sometimes helps, and just accepting the current result.  Sometimes there is a break through in technique, although it is a slow process at times, and sometimes it is about being slow and not in a rush that helps.

Eyes though can drive me up the wall, not an easy process, and I often don't bother.  One thing that helps me with eyes is remembering that the eye balls need to be about as far apart as the edges of the mouth for it to look decent.  Too far away or too close and it definitely looks out of wack.

December 22nd: more assembly done on the Ridgerunner. Thinking of perhaps not glueing any passengers/drivers/commanders in place so I can use them for other things, too. That reminds me: I should look through my bits boxes for a specific bit: a female torso that was cast for a cooperative project back on Librarium-Online.

December 23rd: Did some more minor assembly work on the Ridge Runner and contemplated how to make it modular. Also sorely tempted to get a few second hand ones to make a small fleet for an Imperial force even though I told myself I wouldn't do that. Still, over on the commissar proboards forum, I polled the users what force I should start with. The answer was the Luggnum Sewer Rats (https://warhammer40k.fandom.com/wiki/Luggnum_Sewer_Rats). I already bought some STL files off of the interwebs and I think the Ridge Runners would make an interesting addition to their forces.

December 24th: based (part of) a movement tray and did some minor work on the Ridge Runner assembly. I don't have enough magnets to use those for modular work, so for now I will keep the parts unglued. Some thoughts:

If it's a quick hit and run force, a mortar would be nice. Shoot a few mortar rounds, get in, do your thing while the enemies are still confused, then get out again. It makes me want to make a light mechanised IG force now. Convert some of the Atalan Jackals to turn them into Rough Riders, stuff like that.

December 25th: Finished aforementioned movement tray and finished assembly of the Ridge Runner. Also finished the purple archer unit.

Also, December 28th: did some work on evil troopers. Still stumped on how to further spacify the evil lady. I did base her, though.

January 2nd: made a weird alien lackey for the evil lady.

January 3rd: undercoated a few models, including weird alien lackey and evil lady. Sprayed the undercoat on too thick, so I had to do some dabbing.

(https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2020/05/18/08/41/dab-dance-5185246_960_720.png)

Sadly, vigorously dabbing knocked the miniatures on the ground. I realise now my mistake: the GW paint stick thing is made for GW bases. I mostly use the flat Renadra bases that come with Frostgrave, Stargrave, what have you. Oh well.

Details of pre-repair, pre-undercoat miniatures can be found in my puh-lawg.

No, they can't. They are too vague for use. Sorry.

I think the last ones I ever had were sprcifically blood angels minis with all the iconography sooo pretty late SM I think, before Primaris. They used something like 32mm so would think Black Reach would be similar? Not sure about Termies, they'll be a bit bigger maybe 40mm if that's such a thing??? :?

Did some reorganisation of my desk yesterday, January 7th.

Today I will probably do some of the metallic colours on the Ridge Runner.

I really hate the new colours like Ironbreaker and whatever else it's called. They hardly cover anything. I miss Chainmail and Mithril. Luckily I still have some of those left. I might actually have to shop with Vallejo or The Army Painter for an alternative.

Last couple of evenings I've spent using fillers of varying types (Green Stuff, Liquid Green Stuff and Vallejo Plastic Putty) to touch in gaps here there and everywhere. I'm particularly happy with the puff'n'slash sleeve I filled back in on one of my Greatswords that has a repositioned arm - it's not a lot but I'm never very confident doing anything freehand. All in all I think it's gone ok :biggriin:

Jan 10th: Started building flagellants, printed some blank bases, ordered some thin sheet metal for movement trays.
Jan 11th: continued working on the flagellants; sculpted some rings to hide gaps on the flails I repositioned.
Jan 12th: Cleaned and did some troubleshooting on my printer and the files I've been using. Sorted and cured/cleaned the bits that were salvageable
Jan 13th: Did some experimenting with the slicing software and 3d printer, managed to print the bits I needed for my flagellants and some other bits to prototype crossbowmen; need to play around with the bits/scale a bit more.

January 13th: Undercoated a bunch of models, ranging from a SM dreadnought to a few Chaos cultists.
After reading some previously missed lore about the Red Hunters, I have some doubts about making my models members of that chapter, in spite of having decals made.

Quote
When forces serve alongside certain units of the Inquisition, many witness the full horror of a daemonic incursion or similar phenomenon. When those of the Imperial Guard or similar types of Imperial warriors witness such things, a common protocol that is utilised is that they are often put to death soon after, a mercy considering the corruption and insanity that will inevitably have taken root in their mortal hearts. As such, Chapter's line brethren are routinely subjected to a mnemonic purgation ("mind-wipe") rite, a protocol that preserves their souls and their physical abilities, albeit at the cost of their memories, skills, experience and personality. This makes them an even more valuable weapons in the hands of the secretive and often necessarily brutal Inquisition.

It used to be represented in the rules FW had for them in 6th(?) edition where a handfull of untis could have a flashback of sorts and pick an USR to use for a turn. They are still a cool chapter though, I considered playing them for a bit but ended up going with Astral Claws instead.

Yeah that sounds right, there was also a pdf published by FW at some point that had updated rules and chapter tactics for the chapters in their publications.

I've not really done anything with my marines in a long time.. The Astral Claws turned into the 'Tyrant's Legion' which turned into an Imperial Guard army.  :-D

24th of January: Production on my Luna Wolves has stalled because of the shoulder pads that were only shipped on Sunday evening. On top of that, I have been considering buying a few magnets to put into a few miniatures to allow a certain measure of customisability.

25th of January: cleaned the resin shoulder pads for my Luna Wolves. No further work was done.

I am so tired...

26th of January: Still tired. Did a self-test. Is not Covid, at least. Working out tonight.
Assembled my first Luna Wolf. Will make do without magnets for now, am still ordering some though. Details for the Luna Wolf will be in my blog thread.

28th of January: cleaned up and finished my Luna Wolves. Mildly excited as I am going to follow Duncan Rhodes' tips on painting them. Perhaps, one day, I will be able to paint. Wish I had Vallejo texture paint, though.

2nd of February: painted a little.

3rd of February: So tired. Went for a long walk and then worked out at night. Didn't sleep well as my neighbor decided to hammer at 10PM then use a belt sander at 7AM. What a knob. I did sort a few miniature parts. That'll have to do.

February 6th: did some more sorting of models and bitz. How the hell do I have so many bitz? And even then I'm in the market for some. Somebody should do a bitz swap market but then again, large gatherings in [CURRENT YEAR] trading each other's bitz [HAHAHAHAHAHAHA] that are some of the best (or worst) surfaces for bugs to stick on (not counting Tyranids) might not be a great idea.

Made some resin casts of some scarce accessories this week, namely pouches, daggers and that kinda stuff that I find I never have enough of.

Varied success, a fair few had bubbles and air pockets so are unuseable but I was treating this very much as a test run, I think with a narrower syringe I can get the resin into the moulds better and alleviate the air pockets.

3 evenings so far.

Have you ever read Horus Rising previously?  I enjoyed the first three books of the Horus Heresy series.  Forget which one I am on, and haven't started one since middle of 2020, yet would like to return to the series.

I made one attempt at listening to Horus Rising before, but just got sort of sidetracked. It feels applicable now that I'm painting Luna Wolves. Also, I'm counting listening to another chapter of Horus Rising as today's hobby club because I'm too tired to do anything else.

Got some new kits on the 7th, so I've spent yesterday and today building some guys! A new krieg kill team is taking shape, along with some horus heresy space marine heroes. Although they'll be finding themselves in the 'modern day."

March 20th: based my genestealers with some of AKI's concrete paste so that they can go together with my future GSC, yes I did that before I fully assembled them, but that's so that I undercoat the paste too.

I also started work on my first painting in ages.

Furthermore, I inked all of my men of Gondor, found out one is missing, and read a handful of pages in Rise of Primarchs.

April 17th: painted some more while listening to Galaxy in Flames. Expect that to be the norm for a few more days until I finish Galaxy in Flames and I can get my hands on the audiobook of Flight of the Eisenstein.

Besides the painting listed in the 60 Days thread ... went on a trip to two hobby stores yesterday.  Picked up some more basing tufts, a bunch of paints and washes by Secret Weapon on sale because they went out of business, the Beginner Box for Battletech (has two cool looking figures for painting, plus 8 more die cut mechs with some terrain tokens, 1 double sided map, quick start rules, a fluff booklet with 5 factions, a fan fiction short story, record sheets, cards and interestingly the box was missing it's 6 sided die), and a Kill Team environments book.

That sounds like a good haul. But the parsing is weird. What went out of business? Secret Weapon or one of the stores?

April 24th: painting some more.
