Enough about me. I have had a lot going on this last couple weeks and I am back with a new update. So 2 trips down (NY and Atlanta) with 2 trips ahead of me to go. I had a great time down in Atlanta meeting up with Teek and James. I was able to rock out with 1500 points of Eldar vs Jame's Deathwing. Ouch, I really do not like fighting terminators with Eldar, Eldar just do not have the punching power to take on a whole load of Termie's.
Regardless, the games was great. James and I played one of the Space Marine missions from the battle missions book, and the game ended in a tie do to some last round heroics by the Banshee squad. Belial and his group of assault termies were dropped by a flurry of power weapon attacks combined with Doom. It was a great game and I had a wonderful time meeting up with some Atlanta locals.
Now I have nothing currently planned for Seattle, but plan to swing by the GW Battle Bunker along with my 1500 points of Eldar. I do have some plans for NH however. After speaking with Russ Wakelin of D6G fame, I plan to stop by the new Manchester Myriad Games location for some Malifaux on Tuesday night (July 27). Toward that end, I have been on a mission to get my Malifaux crews painted and based. Upon receiving all my currently ordered MAS bases, I have begun to make some headway.
And that brings us to the next 6 painting points I knocked out last weekend. I have to admit I think Lady Justice is moving to my favorite new model. I decided to go with a Patent Leather Black corset and gloves for her, along with some lighter wood stocks for the pistols:
I also knocked out 3 Death Marshals ( I have another on order) and the Judge to complete the Guild starter box. I have more work to do on the Death Marshal faces, but they make a nice table top quality for now.
I also knocked out one more model for my wife's Neverborn crew. I have not focused on them as I am not sure she is going to play while we are on vacation, but this model just called to me. See, my wife is a huge Disney fan, and when she saw Teddy she asked if he could look like Sully from Monsters Inc. I thought a demonic Sully would be amusing, so I agreed and painted him up.
That's it for this post. I also knocked out my Rasputina crew over the weekend, along with a proxy model for my executioner. I will get more posts up tomorrow, including some shots of the crews together.
Email me if your in the Seattle WA or Manchester NH areas and are looking for a 40K or Malifaux game.
