Nice, looks lovely! Hopefully I can get some AoS on the board myself soon - apparently the new general's handbook has pretty robust rules for quick, balanced 1000-point games which seems right up my alley (and is just about how much I have painted :D).

You've certainly cracked painting Titans, dave - those are top notch. I assume you use templates/tape of some kind for the lines, cos those are crispy as all get out. Very nice work :)
Thanks! And nope, because I'm a masochist it's all freehand by brush (with a little bit of targeted chipping where the lines get a bit wonky). :lol:

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to say hi everyone.

@MiJ, ToD and Yellowstreak - nice painting guys!

Re: AoS Skirmish - I have tried Dragonrampant with Primarch and is was great to get my fantasy fix. If someone is keen, I'd certainly give the AoS skirmish a whirl, too.

Lot's of miniatures on the old hobby table right now...hopefully can get cracking on them soon.

I did a bit of work on a Go-Mo project I have had languishing for ages now. I have done like nothing, nothing whatsoever hobby-wise in probably more than a month. Not sure why. Just no mojo. Felt good to glue rivets and listen to podcasts and I think I'll do it again tonight. I have a couple Diggachicks in the works and should get a bit of puttying in before I forget how to do it. I may dig around in the figure boxes for something to use for Rangers of Shadows Deep (?) and see if I can get some painting mojo back too.

I finished up the fifth titan of my maniple this evening - pics in the morning when I get some good light. Next I'll wrap the knights up, and then I'll have nothing on my plate again. Fortunately :roll: WarCry is slated for a summer release, so I may not have to wait long.

Edit: Eh, I got some OK pictures after all. Here's the second reaver, and the whole maniple in its glory. Legio first!

@ToD - Great work on your Titans, they look beautiful.

As for myself, I managed a little time to sit down and paint over the weekend. I have a load of stuff on my painting desk that I am slowly grinding through, but no real painting mojo. :(

Nagoya games day yesterday was good fun - a couple guys tried out a roughly 2000-point 40K battle using the Apocalypse rules and it a) went pretty smoothly and b) was done in 2-3 hours, which bodes well.

I played a couple 800-point games of Titanicus, versus Auxryn and my friend Jon, and they went really well. Not only was the game very fun with just a couple titans per side, but the rules are really smooth and intuitive - I might have checked the rulebook twice all day?

As for painting, my 4 knights-lancer are *this* close to being done, and I picked up the Tzeentch warband for Shadespire, so there's something to do next. The Titanicus games made me really want to buy a couple more warhounds, but I may wait on that 'til I get more than a couple games in - and instead get some Acastus knights, which are up for preorder this weekend. How could you not love these chunky boys?

Got a little more work done on my Norwegians done recently, and have been playing with some of the contrast paints. I really like the blood angel red, snake bite brown and the yellow (forget the name), but less impressed with some of the other colours (green and blue). The guilleman flesh is also very good.
The wraithbone undercoat is also pretty nice. it has to be the smoothest undercoat I've ever used.

I went to a Bolt Action tournament recently, which was fun. Thought my Early war foreign legion would be outclassed, but did ok with a win and a draw (I couldn't make the second day). I did play a guy wearing a hilterjugende t-shirt, which was....disconcerting. I don't even want to know where you you buy one of those...
On the painting table:

Walking Dead Survivors/Zombies
Zombicide base set (so many zombies!)

Salute, 2007. As much as the South London Warlords would like to forget that episode.
