WM: Khador Kommander Sorscha (Warcaster)

Not too shabby, two models done within a week.  That is a first in a very long time.  Just like "Blaize", "Kommander Sorscha" was sitting in a primed state on my painting table for the past few months, so it was time for the paint to come on and add another completed model to my 'Khador' army.

WM: Cygnar Constance Blaize (Warcaster)

Once again it has been a few months since I lasted painted anything for Warmachine.  The last model I painted was my "Kommander Harkevich" for my 'Khador' army.

Yesterday I had a little downtime so I decided to paint up "Constance Blaize" for my son's 'Cygnar' army.  Constance has been sitting primed on my painting table for a few months so it was finally time to get her done.  Plus for my son's 16th birthday earlier this month, he received the new 'Cygnar' Warjack "Gallant", so I had to finish up "Constance Blaize" so he will be able to play the two together.

I really really really dread painting white, and the detail Privateer Press had on this model was incredible.  It was a little intimidating and I thought I was not going to do the model justice, but I feel she came out alright, at least tabletop quality.

WM: Khador Kommander Harkevich (Warcaster)

It has been nearly 5 months since I last painted a miniature (WM: Mercenaries Phinneus Shae) but yesterday I finally sat down at the painting table and worked on my new "Kommander Harkevich" model that I picked up a few weeks ago.

"Kommander Harkevich" was a bit intimidating when I first looked at him, the detail Privateer Press is adding to their models in just amazing, and since it has been awhile since I last painted, I was a little scared.  Once I actually sat down and started applying the paint to the model, the flow was with me.  He was not actually that bad to paint.

Daily Chronicle: 6/18/2011 'Wrath and Harkevich'

It has been just about four months since I last posted, and about four months since I really played a game.  I did get my feet wet a few weeks with a quick game of Warmachine with my son and the urge to paint/play more is starting to come back.  I haven't been doing nothing, my other hobby (1/24th slot car racing) has been taking a lot of my time recently and when I get back from vacation next weekend (Las Vegas again) I am going to try and start to manage my time between both hobbies.

WM: Mercenaries Phinneus Shae (Warcaster)

I know I have been slacking a little bit lately.  It has been two weeks since I last painted a model.  Yesterday I actually sat down and decided to get started on the new Mercenaries that  my son received.  He decided that he wanted to do a themed 'pirate' list around "Captain Phinneus Shae"

Daily Chronicle: 2/17/2011 'More Mercenaries'

Since I was out of town last week in Las Vegas for an extended Anniversary weekend, not much has been done on the modeling/painting front.  When we got back Saturday night, the next few days were spent playing catch-up games for our 'in-house' WM/H League and also getting in a few games for 'Shattered Grounds'.  For myself personally, I am playing 'Shattered Grounds' for the 'overall map' aspect of the campaign and not the 'in-store' coin.  I am enjoying the game for the game and the global outcome rather than trying to win a store coin.

WM: Khador Kossite Woodsmen (Unit)

It has been quite awhile since I did some work on models for my own Khador army (the Khador "War Dog" was the last model I painted for  myself) but as I mentioned yesterday, I was determined to get my "Kossite Woodsmen" finished today.  I had slowly worked on these guys through out the week while also working on some Protectorate of Menoth models for my son, but this morning I woke up bright and early to get these guys finished.

"Kossite Woodsmen"

Besides working on some Protectorate of Menoth models this past week for my son's army, I have also been slowly working on some "Kossite Woodsmen" for my Khador army.  Seeing how each of the models in this Unit is unique, this Unit is taking me a little bit longer to paint.  It is just like painting the equivalent of six Solo models.

WM: Protectorate Vanquisher (Warjack)

My "Kossite Woodsmen" are starting to feel jealous.  The other day when I 'primed' "Amon Ad-Raza" I also 'primed' my son's "Vanquisher" model for The Protectorate of Menoth.  The "Vanquisher" model was one of the models my son purchased this past weekend at the "Mercenary Market".

WM: Protectorate High Allegiant Amon Ad-Raza (Warcaster)

Last Saturday my son received a 'steal' of a deal at our local game store (Empire Games).  About every three months that hold what is called a 'Mercenary Market', individuals can come in and sell any wargaming items that they want.  The store handles all the transactions and at the end of the day, the seller receives a store gift card for the total amount they sold.  No fee's for table space, only drawback is that you receive store credit.

Painting Points: January 2011

Not a stellar month nor a bad month regarding Painting Points for January 2011.  Part of that reason is that I enjoy painting the Warcaster's and Solo's and those only earn me '1 Point'.  I am alright with that though.  The feeling of getting that model finished is well worth more than '1 Point'.  Since picking up Warmachine/Hordes, I also no longer have the '10 Point' Vehicles I used to paint for Warhammer 40K.

Battle Report: WM Cygnar vs. Protectorate (25 Point League Game)

We are allowed to play 2 League Games per week and as of yesterday I had only had 1 game in for the week.  Since I was home watching the kids while I let the wife have a "day out" alone, my son and I decided to 'throw down' in the garage.  My son already had his 2 games in for the week, so he was playing as a 'neutral' opponent against me.

WM: Protectorate Revenger (Warjack)

It was another slow week for painting, but I was able to manage to get a model done yesterday to add to the Protectorate of Menoth army that my son has.  I decided to work on his "Revenger" Light Warjack that he has.  I also decided to try a slightly different painting style with this Warjack.

WM: Cygnar Trencher Cannon Crew (Unit)

This was a slow week for me in regards to posting and painting models.  I did manage to get a few things done last weekend (Reinholdt and Crusader) and I finally put my son's "Trencher Cannon Crew" on the painting table the other night.  With work and personal life finding ways to slow down my painting, I was able to actually complete this Unit yesterday.

WM: Protectorate Crusader (Warjack)

I finally was able to continue on my son's Protectorate of Menoth army that he received for Christmas with the "Crusader" Warjack.  Between running around this weekend doing personal errands and bumping up the "Reinholdt Gobber" model, the "Crusader" finally was finished last night.  Shortly after Christmas I painted up his "High Exemplar Kreoss" miniature just to get a feel on how I was going to paint up the 'white' on the Protectorate models.  I was very happy with how "Kreoss" turned out, but I am not sure about the "Crusader".

Hordes: Skorne Titan Gladiator (Warbeast)

Skorne Showcase

While I'm working on a few other models that are not quite done yet, here is another model for the 'Skorne Showcase'. Up next we have the "Titan Gladiator".  You'll notice he is missing a shoulder pad which was used on the "Cyclops Brute" as a shield.  As with the rest of the Skorne models, the base has also been redone and the model was touched up a bit.

Hordes: Skorne Praetorian Swordsmen (Unit)

Skorne Showcase

With work being really busy, I have not had much time to get anything painted this week.  Usually I try and play catch up on the weekends.  I have some models primed and ready to go, I just hope I can get to them.  With that being said, we will then continue on with the 'Skorne Showcase'.

WM: Khador Winter Guard Rocketeer (2) (UA)

'Second Rocketeer, same as first Rocketeer'.  My local gaming store finally received their shipment of Privateer Press models.  I was able to pick up the last two models I need for my Khador army so I can have a very flexible 35 point list, and enough to do a 50 point list that I like.

January 9, 2011

WM: Cygnar Long Gunners Officer & Standard (UA)

Back to work on a few models for my son's Cygnar army.  This is one of the two armies that my goal is to have a 50 point painted playable list (having 50 points in Warjacks to me is not considered playable so I have to paint the Units too).  Since he already had these models it was time to get them painted.  The "Long Gunners Officer & Standard" will make a nice 2 point add-on when needed.  I believe all I really have left for the Cygnar to paint will be his "Trencher Cannon Crew" and he'll be able to choose some nice lists to play with.  Anything else that we purchase for Cygnar will be just to collect the models and expand his choices.

Hordes: Skorne Basilisk Drake (Warbeast)

In my son's Skorne army that  I recently gave him, we have 5 models plus the new "Malik Karn" that were still unpainted.

The other day I decided that I wanted to go ahead and paint one of these models.  Just a small break from painting Cygnar and Khador.  I decided to paint up the "Basilisk Drake" that he had.  The "Basilisk Drake" was already primed so it was just a matter of getting started.  The other reason I choose this model is that it makes for a good test bed in case I ever do the Hordes Minion Gators.

WM: Protectorate Vessel Of Judgment (Sneak Peak)

Privateer Press released today the final 'sneak peak' concept sketch of their Battle Engines for Warmachine.  Here is the art for The Protectorate Of Menoth Battle Engine.

I actually really like the look of this model.  Knowing me, I'll probably buy one of each of the Battle Engines when they get released.

WM: Khador Winter Guard Rocketeer (1) (UA)

Along with painting my "Winter Guard Infantry" unit for Khador this past weekend, I decided to include the one "Winter Guard Rocketeer" at the same time since all the colors were basically the same.  I really would like to have one more "Rocketeer" in my 35 point list for an upcoming tournament in February, but currently my local game stores are out of this model.  Hopefully they will get another one soon so I can go ahead and try this list out.

WM: Khador Gun Carriage (Sneak Peak)

I am sure most of you already seen and heard that Privateer Press has released a 'sneak peak' of their all new "Khador Gun Carriage" Battle Engine that will be released in June 2011 as part of 'Wrath'.

Over the course of the week, Privateer Press plans on releasing more information about their upcoming Battle Engines.
"That’s right; over the course of the week you are going to get a true insider look at the overall production of battle engines and how each department tackled these awesome new models. As if that weren't enough to chew on, we are also previewing the concept art for each of the remaining four battle engines with a new one at the end of each insider."
Here is the image that was released today for the "Khador Gun Carriage".  I know what model I'll be purchasing this Summer.
