6MMRPC Week 12

Last week I started a unit I hadn't touched in years, now this weekI finished the unit of Empire Knights.

I think they turned out well.  Finishing a unit means I get another Joker too!

6MMRPC Week 11

Originally I had planned on working on my D&D Chainmail minis, but as time has gone by I've changed gears and tried to work on the many projects I have started but never finished. That way I'm not unboxing things and can really appreciate the headway I am making.

So this week I am trying to finish a unit of Empire knights from Warhamner Fantasy. I've had them almost a decade, so they are really ready to get off the pile!

I also managed to get in a game of Deadzone. It's a sci-fi skirmish game. I had never played before and it was interesting, although I don't know how I feel about the movement squares. 

(Obviously those aren't my miniatures--otherwise I would have painted them!)

6MMRPC Week 10

I finished the other three Bugbear Warriors to go with the one I painted last week.  They are all from the Reaper Bones 2 Kickstarter.  It took a little creativity to come up with some ways to have four identical miniatures looking differently.  Of particular effort was the left foot shin guard/right arm guard.  It obviously is supposed to be studded leather, but honestly my eyesight and hand-eye coordination isn't that good any more.  So I just made them look like bumpy leather or dragon skin.

So here is the whole lot, all ready to abuse adventurers.

6MMRPC Week 9

So, a quick week since I posted just a few days ago, but I did get one figure painted, a Bugbear Warrior from the Reaper Bones 2 Kickstarter.

After I finished, I realized there were no less than three others in the box, all identical, so I have started getting them up to speed.

So, I don't know if it counts as using a Joker, but I bought a copy of Frostgrave, the new fantasy skirmish game from Osprey.  The basic set-up is that each player fields a wizards leading a retinue composed of a group of followers and an optional apprentice against one another in a demolished fantasy city.  There are campaign options similar to Mordheim, but what is really nice is you are not confined to a manufacturer's miniatures, but can use anything that fits the bill.  I'll take it for a test drive soon.

6MMRPC: Week 8.5

I didn't manage to get anything painted during the eighth week, but a couple of days into the ninth week I finished up my Mordheim Cult of the Possessed warband.  I had started them long ago but never finished them.  Now, they are completely painted and ready to comb Mordheim for treasure and leave destruction in their wake.

I was really, really unhappy with the Possessed, because I got in a rush and used red ink on the face.  I should have let the ink dry before using blue ink on the hair.  Well, the blue ink ran right into the red ink and flowed along the face, making it look like the face had been crying with mascara.

After trying to blot as much as possible off, I had to repaint the face and neck, which was not fun, but manage to roughly salvage it.  Sigh.

So I finished a unit, which should entitle me to a joker, but I haven't even spent one yet so we'll see if I need it.

6MMRPC Week 7

I got the three orcs from the Reaper Bones set finished. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. 

In addition, I was asked by the kiddos to bust out Mordheim for a fun summer morning activity. Skaven vs. Cult of Possessed. The Skaven ended up making quick work of almost all my heroes due to a flurry of critical hits and poisoned blades!

The table laid out in all its glory.

The Skaven Assassin Adept fails his psychology roll, but promptly slays the Possessed.

I really should add those cultists minis to my to-do list...
