Progress of my army...

We have a local tournament quickly approaching. It is Brawler Bash. This great tournament is in its 5th year and current projections have it scheduled to possibly have over 75 players. This is amazing and will be a real blast. In preparation for the tournament I set myself a painting schedule to complete a 3000 point Ogre Kingdom army in less than 2 1/2 months. Some of my earlier post were showing the Leadbelchers and the the color I was going to be going with. Well, I am fast approaching the deadline, the tournament is April 13-14 in Raleigh, NC. I have the bulk of the army completed or almost completed. I thought I would post some pics of the army as it stands right now.

I'm going for the freehand painting points by having over half the pants either in a stripe or checkerboard pattern. No 2 pairs of paints are the same color either, I feel they would find what they can, not all be looking alike. Please give me your thoughts and opinions.

The Stonehorn is almost completed. Note the gems growing in the stone tusks.

 The Ironblaster is done just waiting to get to the bases.

 The Mournfang cavalry wait to charge.

 I decided to use the new Fell Wargs from LOTR as Sabretusks...What's your thoughts?

Prepare to Fire...

I got the first full unit of Ogres relatively completed. This unit of Leadbelchers will provide the fire support to the Ogres as they rush into combat. They are not done yet. I still need to add some rust effects, add the Gnoblar head to the unit leader, and bases.This is just a unit of 6 with a bellower. The bases won't be done until all the models are complete for the entire army so I can do them all at once and match them up properly. I also plan to add the fine detail items to the army all at the end too.

Let me know what you think... as I think I will now move onto my unit of 4 Mournfang.


Blood Bowl commission work

I mentioned that I would post on some previous commission work I had done. These are some Blood Bowl minis that I painted for a friend. I had previously painted the entire Chaos Dwarf team for him. These were some additional star players, coaches, cheerleaders, doc, etc.

I should be getting a batch of 4 more Star players to paint for him in the near future. Once I get them in and start painting them I will post pics about them as well.

As always feel free to comment...

OK, the start of something new...

Well, unfortunately I have been out of touch for a very long time, almost a year from my last post. I am hoping to use this as a way to get back into the gaming and painting scene. I've been gaming and painting some commission stuff, but not really focused on the hobby I love. I just got back a bit over a week ago from a Fantasy tournament in Columbia, SC...Scarabcon. It was a great event and I will post a different blog post on how things went there next time.

Playing in the 2 day tournament got me stoked about painting again though and so here I am. I have a new army that I have play tested some, but unfortunately is relatively common....Ogre Kingdoms. I wanted to start off by showing a few of my demo paint jobs until I decided on a color.

I wanted to avoid the flesh color and greys that are common and thus decided on something with a bit of green to it. I don't feel I'm done adding rust effects yet to the final Irongut you see below, but its a start.

Please provide your thoughts on the colors, minis, painting, etc... I am always open to thoughts and ideas. Hopefully I can get this entire 3000 point army completed by Brawler Bash in Durham, NC...April 13-14. We shall see...I will also post my list ideas in another blog posting soon.

Glad to be back
