11.warriors of chaos
12.possibly revisit my Tau 

this is my list from my very first post on this blog. seeing as it has been more then 3 months seance i started this It seemed a good time to review.

1.painting up options for my imperial fists
                        This one has not had a ton finished for it but progress has been made for sure 

2.completing my small adeptus custodes army
                       not a whole lot done or these guys but some progress is better then none...
                                                        aduptus custodies land raider 
                       on the plus side they can now possibly be fielded as part of my imperial fist  army as allies with the 6th edition allies rules.                                           

                      these guys have gotten allot of love recently i don't even think posting links in this is reasonable you can just look at most of the post from down the page.

4.vampire counts

                      allot of building  and painting going on for these guys as well same with the orcs just look below this post to see what has been going on with the hordes of skeletons and all the other goodies that army has in store.

               not much in the way of finished fresh terrain but 
                is going well 
6.Zone mortis board
                this project has gotten back on tract lately

7.finish my scratch build warhound
                           well finishing it is not what has happened but at least it has seen some progress  

8.paint my baneblade tank
                          yeah... nothing on this one 
9.start painting up the high elves from the warhammer starter box
                         i primed some of them.... that is the start of painting but orks and vampires seen to keep eating my painting time

10.paint up the citys of death building i got back when it came out
                          just the terrain-quicky  to count in for this one 
11.warriors of chaos
                         nothing to see hear move along...
12.possibly revisit my Tau 
                         have not really given them even a second thought seance adding them to the list.

Coven Throne

I started painting the Coven Throne today. I most certainly have never painted anything with this much detail it is a bit over whelming. so i started simple and put boltgun on the armor of the spirit horde that pulls it then washed them all in a mix of thraka green and asurmen blue. I think I will do one more light wash of straight asurmen blue before I go back after the high spots in white.

Vampire counts: skeletons the return

It's time the vampires got some new blood.... any way I have had these 3 boxes of skeletons laying around for a bit and now they are going to be added to the twenty I all ready have finished( vampire-counts-skeletons )They should be much more threatening in a large block. At least that is what i am shooting for.

Deffkoptas part: II

Finished up the deffkoptas now all i have to do is a warboss and a trukk to get my starter force finished.

Monday, July 23, 2012

Orc Nob's part: II

Some days I just go crazy and paint until things are done. That is what happened today. I still need my warboss a trukk and 2 deffcopters to make my 500 point army but these 5 guys are a nice leap towards the finish line.

Terrain refurbishment part Four

Some trim has helped add a bit to these very old buildings I think I will punch out some rivets to add on to the trim. Also I believe it needs some cracks in the walls and perhaps some built holes before paint. But the pile of junk in the center is still me favorite part of this piece it is just not 100% game friendly as guys don't all wise stand easily on it. You can't win em all tho.

orcs update

This is what I have gotten done today just a little base coating and base work they look really terrible but most everything I paint starts like this. lets just hope I have time to get them to look at least as good as the boys before the first game of the league.

Wednesday, July 18, 2012


This is way behind the curve right now but I need it done asap so there should be a lot of progress  soon

Tuesday, July 17, 2012


the one in the middle is finished but the other 4 are jest getting started

Monday, July 16, 2012


I am painting up these 2 Deffkoptas for my first 500 points of orcs they still need a lot of base colors but they are getting there

Dakkajet part: II

 The jet needed a lot of little things.
 a nice maw of spikes on the intake
 rivets for all the plates and some odd looking cobbled together rocket engines.  
 and of course the boys need a way to get back on the ground. not that the skids would last threw an ork landing of course. 
last but not least the pilot and his grot assistant.

Orc warboss

I am in full on painting mode to get geared up for the escalation league so I am hopeing for lots of fast updates for my orc army. this guy got his 3 basic colors there is a long way to go but i planed on doing this for all the guys i need then stepping  them up from there until i am happy with them.

Deffkoptas part: I

I decided to try playing in an escalation league that is starting soon at my FLGS and I need these 2 Deffkoptas ready to go  asap also a warboss and a truck and about 4 more nobs..... guess I need to get painting.

again there are three colors so they do make minimum standards... but there not even green and that would be just wrong to field them as is.

6th edition escalation league

I decided to try my hand at keeping up with an escalation league. Seance I all ready have my imperial fists painted now I went with orcs

   This will be my 500 point base. I am excited seance there is alot more interesting stuff then what I would have in a space marine army.
Today is the first day so look forward to some reports and hopefully pics of the other army's people are starting

Note: the picture above this was taken on 6/22/2012 when I decided to start this project I am hopeing they are all painted by today...

Zone mortis board part: I

This is my take on the Forge World Zone mortis game board. It is still very "work in progress"
but after discovering a new tool that will speed things up (humm I might have to paint it red...) I am back on tract to finish this project.
This paper cutter is what will finally give me the speed i need to actually see some progress .
first off I needed to set a size for the trim on all the walls I went with 3/8" if  you were wondering how many strips it will take to do this whole project the answer I am currently dealing with is simply "more" if you think you cut enough multiply that by two perhaps three and then you might be close.

 this is the first stack.....
Then I needed this stack..... and it looks like I will still need at least one more stack to do the sections I have
The floor needed something interesting on it i went with 1" squares again if you think you have enough just keep cutting this pile did 7 tiles but just barely and only after I decided that the really large open spaces would go uncovered and I would simply paint something interesting in them.
The squares where not enough for the floors seance you are looking at them all the time so I decided they all need drains so I sliced down some granny grateing and started glueing. 

 This is what I ended up with after all my work today it may not look like much but I can start painting them as soon as they dry and that is a huge step forward so I am pleased.

Dakkajet part: I

 I started with a P-47d thunderbolt in 1:48th scale it seemed about the right size 
 added some proper guns i cant seem to get a proper shot of them close up the white on white does not come out well. but after i start painting it should be nice looking there are holes drilled in the outer larger tube to look like air coolers
 lots of ork glyphs and armor plates added to make it look orky
 its starting to look finished but i am not 100% happy. i just cant decide where to add somthing to finish it.
one last shot for..
