Long Time, No Post

So I'm done school *much fanfare*, and will be available for much posting. Right now I've been up to my ears in gaming: Warhammer 8, Hordes 2, WFRP3, World of Darkness, WFRP2, OH GOD!

So I'll give y'all an update on Monday, as that's my next free day. I'll also be starting the beginning of a series of articles called "The Wargamer's Top 10 Miniatures Games," followed by "The Wargamer's Top 5 Role-Playing Games." Where each post covers a game. This will hopefully run for 15 days starting monday (in addition to regular posts).

I'm also in a Warhammer 8th edition army builder campaign back at the helm of my beloved High Elves. Oh, and Dark Age is being re-released. Oh! AND! The game shop I work at is hosting our annual painting contest, which I shall submit entries in every category. The entries may surprise many of you, or none at all.

Also, a dark apostle has been spotted at the edge of the solar system, heading right for Earth... Stay tuned.

Hordes Painting Challenge Day 31


So it took me 31 days to do a 35 point army, but I came in 2nd, AND i did the whole army in only 7 sittings! That means, if I did paint every day, I would've finished this army in one week: the same amount of time that the 1st place winner finished his stuff in. Would'a, should'a, could'a...

Anyways, I'm supremely pleased that I did an army that I'm proud of so quickly, and this opens new avenues of speed painting for me. Tomorrow I'll get a picture of the whole force together. I'm also going to have my 1st game around the 7th of July when the Hordes card packs come out. I'll post a battle report of that.

When I post pictures of the whole force tomorrow I'll also (finally!) write an army list and show what was in this army. Until then, enjoi!

The last bit of the army, finished!
