And so it began...

My intention for this blog is for it to be a record of my gaming experiences, trials, tribulations and painting and modelling efforts.

New Year resolutions

Well 2011 is now in the past. Noteable for me gaming wise was the amount of new games I have started. Over the course of the year I got into Dystopian wars, Uncharted seas, Bushido, Eden, Flames of war, and IABSM (I ain't been shot mum). Then just when I think that has got to be it along comes Dark Age.
Had a game at a mate's house a couple of days ago and it rocks. Miniatures are top draw. So looks like my first new purchase for 2012 will be a Forsaken list but more of that later in the year.

Sadly got out of Lassalle this year after big outlay for figures. Fantastic ruleset but I just could not motivate myself to paint 130+ 28mm figures that are all very similar. Painting should not be a chore.

So looking ahead to 2012 I really want to get my FOW army all finished so I can get away to a few tournaments. Apart from that lots of skirmish type gaming and with plenty of systems to choose from that should not be a problem. I have a several interests outside gaming that I really want to spend more time in this year so looks like I will be busy in 2012 :-)

Been busy today and have got all my FJ infantry stands based. Just need to put a bit of putty on tomorrow and they will be ready to paint. I have used a few extra bits from the cassino plastic base sprues that Battlefront make.

Army of the week

This week we have one of my favourite malifaux crews, Ophelia and her gremlins. They are really a parody of the Perdita crew from the guild. Tough to play with as they have low will power so against some crews they suffer. They can put out a lot of firepower and are quick however so always have the ability to surprise an opponent.

These are the latest additions to the crew the young lacroix, who are Ophelias totems (she can take three).

Last of all Ophellia herself.

First FJ stand

After a bit of experimenting and sorting the right colours etc I have finished my first stand of fallschirmjagers for FOW. Need to get a crack on as my regualr gaming mate, Bruce, has nearly painted a company of Brits. We are going to be using them for the IABSM (I ain't been shot Mum) ruleset by Toofatlardies (see link below) plus I will be using mine for FOW.
The commander has a red spotted scarf around his neck. I have to say I enjoy painting 15mm so very quick to do and when done will look great.

New feature in a bid to get more stuff up on my blog I thought once a week I would feature one of my painted armies.
So for this week it is my ISC from Eden. Enjoy...
