I must be mad, I have given myself another whole army to paint, again. But having played a couple of games recently, I really like the rules and thought I should jump in to A Song Of Ice And Fire.
Although I resisted buying any at Colours recently, I decided to punt for a Lannister force in the end and ebayed a good selection.
I need to get undercoating this weekend…
I have managed to finish off a few random models this week, in a vain attempt to make way for new stuff, but there is still more to clear yet.
This batch are for Rogue Stars and any other miscellaneous sci-fi games I get into.
The first two are Aberrant Games models, both law keepers and so destined for a Space Cops crew, really nice models.
A blast from the past is this old Imperial Psyker, I had a bit of trouble getting some old paint off of it, but after a quick paintjob, he will join the Star Cops crew.
I thought these two Spartan Games models would make interesting armoured SWAT type models. As I was undecided what colour to go for, and they had been undercoatd in white, I opted for a Stormtrooper paint scheme, then again, that is just lazy.
A spare Karman model got a repaint, not sure what for yet, but he came up quite nice.
Finally, a Westwind armoured chap, originally for the Japanese Weird War II force, but using a Space Marine head, he is now a general hero type dude.
My retro Tyranid army for the current edition of 40K is nearly ready, I bought another old lead Tyranid Warrior with a Venom Cannon off eBay, this brings my total Warriors up to twelve. I will be able to run two units of six models.
I just to remember what colours I used to match the other one…
This weekend is the Colours Wargames show at Newbury Racecourse, one of the two shows I try to get to every year.
This year I have been trying not to get into anything new but have been comprehensively failing. Apart from buying the new Ragnarok book from Osprey, I have also bought the new Warcry starter box and can feel myself being drawn into CMON’s Game of Thrones A Song of This and That.
Anyway, at Colours, young Jim at Products For Wargamers will have some new shipping containers on sale that I finished designing recently. I am quite please with the design and they stack really well. I think ten or so of these would look pretty good on a table.
I wonder what I will come back from Colours with?
Apparently this is the 1000th post.
I really must get a life…
The weather was the exact opposite of last years event, this year at the Silverstone MotoGP we had an amazing hot and sunny day. The racing was red hot as well with Alex Rins and Marc Marquez within half a second for the whole race and ending on the line almost level, Rins taking the win by 0.013 seconds.
On the first lap, Quartararo lost the rear and then the front to crash out, taking Dovizioso with him. A real shame as both of these guys would have been in the fight at the front.
That is pretty much the end of the Championship for the year, with Dovi out, Marquez has built up a massive lead and it is his already.
I picked up the new Warcry box last week and have been resisting opening it. I really MUST get my Castellan Knight built before I get stuck into this huge box of stuff.
I continue to resist…
