I spent the weekend in Copenhagen and had the opportunity to visit the local GW shop. A very small basement-like shop with some very nice guys. I got the rundown on all the new paints and a very nice chat about the finer points in Guardsmen strategy. Right now I am nursing the cold of the century and I am itching to get home and get some painting done!
The PlasticFish is trying to get back into the painting-mood!
Right now we are still throwing down in the underhive of "Necromunda". And I'm trying to get into Warmachine with my Khador battlegroup.

Kicking off in about an hour! Last game ended in a heavy defeat for the Van Saar "Chrome Lords".
So today I will try and take it more careful, more sneaky and try and put more Lasbolts into the air!
Next update after the games!

I haven't been motivated to paint or build anything in some time now. And that is why the posting has been mostly sporadic for some time now.
But now work is starting to pile up on my desk.
It took some cutting and some bending (it is surprisingly simple to bend finecast resin after you flush it in hot water). But at last I got it into the right position.

What have I been up to lateley?
Well, I've been working and in between I've been playing some games and painting some minis. I recently started up Battlefleet Gothic with some friends. It's really a project I've been working on for the past year, but never got of the ground...
Right now I got 2 Ramships (the blue ones in the front row), 3 Savage Gunships, 2 Ravager Attack Ships, 2 Kill Kroozers (the big chunky onew to the right) and 2 Terror Kroozers (well one of them is still being painted). I'm also working on a Spacehulk and some more Fighta Bomma-markers.
Since I scratchbuild all of my ships I only invest time in this project, while my friends buy ships from GW and ForgeWorld. So right now we only play 500pts games.
Here we have my 500 pts list. A Terror Kroozer, a Kill Kroozer and a trio of Savage Gunships. In the last game I opted to change my Heavy gunz batteries for torpedolaunchers with looted torpedos.
The last game was against my friends Tau-fleet and it ended in a terrible draw. Both our remaining ships tried to outmanouver eachother and after two hours we decided that we both had enough...
That game put the finger on the problem - I need more, cheap, and fast escorts!
And yes, the work on the Chaos Baneblade continues...

So I'm back from another afternoon with Necromunda. Sorry to say that it was a complete disaster for my team but it was also a lot of fun.
First, I've been trying out my "Techgang" a couple of times - without any great success I may add. Second, we played a three-sided battle. My "Techgang", the Mercs and a gang of Scavvies - with too many Zombies lined up for a fight. The result was devestating for my gang. One of my gangers was turned into a Zombie and my Leader got blown away by one of the Scavvies...
So that was the end of my "Techgang" for this time. Since then I've been dubbling my efforts, and trying to get the Van Saar ChromeLords into business again. Somewhere Downhive there's a rumor that an invasion of Plague Zombies is on the way... It's time to rally all hardened fighters in the defense of the Underhive.
Until next time...

As I said in my previous posting I've been putting some work into getting my old Baneblade finished. I wasn't satisfied with the outcome the first time around, so now I'm trying to fulfill the original vision I had for this project.
I also added the smokelaunchers and a couple of more Nurglings (still got a few more to add). Most of the Nurglings also needs to be repainted - since most of them was painted quite hasty the first time around.
More pictures will come, as soon as I've gotten some more work done on it!

Ok, I'm back again. But no pictures of my ongoing projects. Since the last posting I've finished the magnetized Russ and I'm planning on adding another one or two to the army.
I've also started to do a bit of repainting on my old Baneblade.
|BaneBlade, before the repaint.|
More pictures are on the way!

So, I'm on vacation. And there are a lot of other things I've been doing besides from painting. But I've managed to slap some paint on the magnetized Leman Russ I started a while back.
Monday, July 11, 2011
I glued the sponsons in place, I could have magnetized them but I didn't want to have the whole tank go into peices if you picked it up from the table in the wrong way...
Since I'm playing a traitor-guard army this one will have the same kind of paintjob as the Vendetta and the Sentinel that are already in the army (pictures of the vendetta and the sentinel).
Now I just need to add some more metal to the weapons and I'm ready for the painting!

Another weekend has passed. And what have I been up to? Well, I got my hands on a Leman Russ-kit last week and I spent some time building it and magnetizing it.
Pictures will be up tomorrow. But as I was building the kit some points of interrests came to mind:
First of the Leman Russ is a really easy kit to build, and that's on the plus-side. On the negative side I really can't understand why they don't put all the options for the tank into the kit..! It really ticked me off, that a need to get a "tank accessories"-sprue from GW if I want to put on a dozer-blade or add a Heavy Stubber to it.
Well ok, sure I could use plasti-card to build me a dozer-blade but I don't really have the time right now...
Well, I'm not going to take up more time with the subject. Tomorrow I'll post some pictures of the magnetizing of the weapons and some thoughts on the future!
Until then, good night!
