WIP Wednesday – Sisters of Averlorn

Just a quick update.  This is what’s on my painting desk tonight.

I have done the metals and gems.  I’m working on the leathers currently.  Hopefully they’ll be done next week sometime.

I like the way this sister came out,  but when I tried to duplicate it on the others it didn’t come out quite the same and I’m not as happy with the others.  However, these models are going to be colorful and the dark leathers will probably get lost in the background so I’m not too worried about it.

2014 Unplugged GT – April Update

Lets keep this short and sweet.  The 2014 Unplugged GT has sold out of tickets and even has a strong wait-list.  We think this is super exciting.  We’re really happy you’ve all decided to come spend the weekend gaming with us!

To commemorate we are going to up the stakes a little bit.  We’ll be adding a catered lunch on Saturday (free of charge).  I don’t have the details completed ironed out yet, but I’m pretty sure it’ll be great.  If you have dietary restrictions please let me know so we can make special arrangements.

Keep an eye on the scenarios.  The replacement isn’t worked out yet but we will be dropping our “Blood and Watchtowers” scenario.  It’s not because of the scenario, it’s the burden putting a building on every table placers on our terrain team and restricts our creativity with table layouts.

And last but not least, we are working to open up some more tables at the event.  We’ll be starting with 8 more spots and see how it goes from there.  If you are currently on the wait-list you’ll be contacted individually.

Cheers,
Jon

WIP Wednesday – More DE

Another Wednesday another WIP!  This time I show my now completed corsair unit, which was last week’s WIP as well as this week’s project.  I am redoing 5 cold one knights for UPGT as I am sick of the current painted models not ranking up.  In the following pics you can see how I used some cork to get some different heights to make it all work out.

WIP Wednesday – Dice Bags

After many years of being a Warhammer Wife and occasionally a Warhammer Widow… (- I mean, comm’on ladies. We all know Warhammer is the other woman in our relationships with these guys!)  (…like there’s ladies reading this…sheesh) I’ve come to support my husband and his buds in their gaming habits.

Recently, Jon asked if I could make him a bigger dice bag because he was hauling around so many they LITERALLY didn’t fit in his any more. So, I took the idea and customized it to his requirements.

The crocheted pouches below are wider and taller, and also sit open wide-mouthed for easy grabbing of much needed die, markers, maybe a tape measure, etc. I also wove in the club’s logo (UPG with an outlet and a plug), because what’s cooler than that?

Do you like?? Pat’s already ordered his after seeing them in person.

I’m considering taking orders at the G.T. Do you think there’ll be interest?

WIP Wednesday – Pat’s DE

Hey All!

So Jon and I were talking at work last week about getting a WIP Wednesday thing going on the main blog page.  Well…as usual I dropped the ball and didn’t post my update from last week, so tonight I will give you 2 (TWO!) updates.

Last week I rebased my Executioner horde and finished off the highlights on their red cloth.  This unit is now what I would call “done”.  That is until Peyton points out that I probably forgot to paint  full sections of my models.

Here are the pics…

This week is all about the first warlock unit.  These models were rush basecoated for the “bro” tourney a couple weeks back.  Time to finish them.  Monday I did the bases and some shading on the horses.  Tonight so far I have done the teeth and eyes.  Will spend the rest of the night highlighting the manes and tails.  Still lots to do on these, and frankly, I think they are terrible models and do not really want to paint them.  If only they weren’t so OP.  Anyways, here are some pics.

So what are you all working on this week?

Mega Squig Ready for Mayhem

I am leaving for Spring Break on Friday. I have been spending most of my free time frenetically painting my Mega Squig. I am pleased to say that he is now ready for the tournament. He is NOT done yet, but he is “good enough” to put down on the table. I am so psyched to have a fully painted Orcs and Goblins army and bring it to a major GT. Wish me luck!
