#workbenchWednesday 14/11/18

Well, I really dropped the ball keeping this updated, right?   My deepest apologies to all 7 of you.

At least I have a few things to show off today.   I've been working at getting my mojo back for painting with the 30 minutes a day for 30 days challenge on facebook, and have had quite a successful run so far.  I've pretty much stopped keeping track of games played as I've been playing a lot more, and my #hobbystreak tallies.

So, the workbench...

Reaper Bones Ogres - to be Daisho Oni

I am currently working on a trio of Reaper Bones Ogres that I plan to use for Daisho at the club, possibly as the start of an Oriental Dragon Rampant force, along with my Savage Wave stuff for Bushido.  Although, painting red might put paid to such grandiose plans...

Just off the workbench is a pack of 6 Mantic Werewolves.  Can't say I love the models, they are pretty underwhelming after the kickass kickstarter preview art, but, I have 120 of them, so I guess I better start working on them.



Very basic paintjob to tie them in with the Draugr, guess I can use them as either "Berserkers" for Viking Haerthguard, or a Greater Warbeast Pack in Dragon Rampant.  At a push they might wok for Konflict '47 too.

I've also finished up a few more Reaper Bones models, the Large Earth Elemental and Well of Chaos.  Probably cost more in basing materials than it did for the models...





Really enjoy going OTT with foliage and stuff on models, I feel a Feral Elf/Wild Hunt/Trees and Golems and Elementals army coming on.


That's not everything I've done recently, but it's enough for now, I'll save the rest for the end of month round up.


Cheers,

John

#workbenchWednesday 08/08/18

So, don't have a workbench shot because it is top secret stuff on it right now, but I do have some things to show off that I knocked out over the weekend.



I've been leaning towards doing more fantasy styled Dark Ages gaming, so I'm looking at Blood Eagle again, and figured I would paint up some Draugr models as quick and dirty generic bad guys.

It turned out that I still had some of the Games Workshop Army of the Dead plastic models from the Lord of the Rings line still on the sprue lying in a box near my desk, so, they seemed like a good starting point.  I wanted to avoid the usual ethereal paint scheme for them, opting for a variety of grubby browns and black, to better represent mouldering corpses rather than ghosts.



I quickly knocked out one each of a plastic Army of the Dead trooper, metal Black Numenorean, and a Spectre from Otherworld games.  Nothing groundbreaking with the paintjobs, Army Painter Leather Brown colour primer, Strong Tone wash, then paint the skin Ash Grey, hair and beards Skeleton Bone, armour and weapons Machinegun Metal (AKA Platemail Metal IIRC) and the black cloth Necromancer Cloak (Robe?) then apply a Dark tone wash to the metals and some of the brown cloth, and soft tone to the skin and hair.  Job done.


Not so Solid Crew


So, in rather short order I managed to get 12 Army of the Dead troopers, 3 Black Numenoreans and 2 Spectres painted over the weekend, and so began some grand plans to make this into a Dragon Rampant/SAGA force, seeing as I have a huge Lord of the Rings backlog to draw from.

Almost feels like cheating


 Sure, they won't win any awards, but they definitely look the part for a bunch of mouldering corpses.  I have another 4 Warriors of the Dead, 3 Black Numenoreans, a RedBox Sorcerer, Reaper Viking and Uruk-hai Berserker primed up ready to go, as well as a spare copy of the hooded Witch-king.

I've also based up enough Army of the Dead to be able to field 6pts of Warriors in SAGA, or 4 units for Dragon Rampant.  I might have to see about getting some custom movement trays to be able to use them for War of the Ring too.

I am Batman.

The rummaging through the LotR backlog also turned up enough metal Morgul Knights to build 16, as well as 10 Riders of the Dead, plus a spare King and a Standard Bearer, which I think I'll end up putting on an oversized base.  There is also a load of Trolls, and other random gribblies like Wraiths, Wights and Bat Swarms, so I have plenty to be getting on with.


Well, I'm the Dark Knight.



That's it for the week, just building up more LotR figures and planning a massive army.  Hopefully that's the productivity back on track.  Still haven't been keeping track of #hobbystreak, but I have been doing a little each day.

Until next week,

Cheers,

John

#workbenchWednesday 01/08/18

Wow, actually on time this week...   So, how's the old workbench looking?



Pretty sparse for sure, although, I am working on some stuff that I have to keep under wraps as it is pre-release industry work.  Just the Razorback Crew to do for Mike's army to finish it off.  Which means, I must have finished all the Razorboars, right?

Ghost Pig - Way of the Hamurai.

Right.  He asked me to do a couple of them in the same "Sin City" style that I had done my Grymkin in, so I obliged, with one being done identically, and the other to have an orange glow.  Not really much area for glow effects as even the eyes are armoured on these little piggies.  He likes the final result, which means I am now doing some test pieces for him for Legion of Everblight.


Nephilim Soldier
Naga Nightlurker


Went with the Soldier and Naga as test pieces, because, well, I had them already, and it shows the scheme on a model with and without any metal areas.  Turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.  I'd like to do a selection of different test models with various 'glow' effects in a bright red, green, yellow, pink, purple, orange, blue and so on, as well as different tints on the armour, and a selection of Tamiya Clears for the blood and whatnot.  I reckon this would work for all the Hordes factions, and probably Cryx too, although, I'm not too sure with all the Warmachine ones.

Off to the side of the workbench currently looks like this.

Awwwwww, they're only ikkle.

None more brown.

First up is my Dwarfs from FourA Miniatures that I'm painting up for the SAGA Rampant! Challenge, along with some of the oldest kiddo's Goblins that she is painting for Hordes of the Things, along with the remaining Butcher's Guild figures to paint for Guildball, a Foundry Viking I am painting up for Blood Eagle/Saga, both Stormcast warbands for Shadespire, and a varied selection of models that I'm planning on doing for Blood Eagle.  There are Black Numenoreans and Army of the Dead from the Games Workshop Lord of the Rings line, plus a couple of Wraiths or Spectres from Otherworld Miniatures that are all planned as part of a Draugr Warband, along with some Reaper tombstones, and some Northstar miniatures (Crowmaster and Crow from Frostgrave and a Dwarf from the OGAM range) and finally a Footsore Shaman.

So, along with getting that lot primed up, I also have a growing collection of stuff mid assembly/basing.


There are various Reaper Bones ogres and a Giant, alongside a rock monster, foo dog and fountain, along with a metal werewolf and a vikingy guy who will join the Draugr.  There is also the Dragon Tong for IHMN as well as some Tharn that have been there for months now.  Finally, a Red Box Sorcerer who is also going into the Draugr collection.



Lastly, done a bit rearranging in the games room to try and keep things tidy/make better use of space.  It is quite disheartening how few painted forces I have in relation to the amount of figures and rulesets I own...  Guess I have to keep working on those double-duty ones right?


Well, that's it for this week, not really kept track of what I've been doing on a daily basis but that pretty much covers all I've been up to since my last weekly update.

Cheers,

John

Month in Review - July 2018

Well, that's us heading deeper into the latter half of the year, how are the #hobbyresolution2018 going?





1 - Transfer my flip-top paint collection to dropper bottles. (83/519)

2 - Organise and run a two day Warmahordes event, (1/1)



Done.

3 - Make £500 selling old models. (20/500)

Not sold anything this month.  Might have a buyer for my pile of Island of Blood Night Goblins soon though. 

4 - Maintain the Blog with weekly and monthly updates. (22/52 and 7/12)

Started to lag badly with this.  Weather hasn't helped as it completely kills my motivation to even move, nevermind take a bunch of pictures and sit typing.


5 - Go to 2 Gaming Shows or Conventions. (2/2)

Done.


6 - Play 6 New Opponents. (6/6)



Done

7 - Play 100 Games (53/100)

Done.


16 - Paint the Hog Wild Malifaux box (6/6 Models)

Complete.


So time for some numbers then?

Painted  44 models this month, and assembled at least 60.  The stuff that was sidelined on the workbench remains there.  Should be getting back to that soon.  Been kinda busy with commission stuff so haven't done any stuff for myself.

Played  3 games of 100, so, that average of 2 a week really took a hit. 

Have now finished 8 of my Hobby Resolutions,not added any extra this month.

Current #hobbystreakday - no idea, kinda lost track of updating.

Yearly painting tally is 256 miniatures or elements painted (151 for myself, 105 for commissions)

I've also grabbed a bunch of pictures, so, fingers crossed, I can actually do a #workbenchWednesday post tomorrow.

Cheers,

John

Guess what? A belated #workbenchWednesday 04/07/18

So there I was all sorted for getting back into the routine of regular updates, and I missed the first one...  Acceptable though as I have the kids over all week for the holidays, and staying out late for ice cream and playing on the swings was of the utmost importance.

The workbench currently looks like this


Shadespire in that house!


with a sidebar of

Dwarfs and Pigs

She's picked me up Shadespire and the Farstriders Warband for my birthday, so I've got them assembled, primed and started.  I've swithered a lot over a colour scheme, since the Stormcasts first appeared in Age of Sigmar actually, and finally bit the bullet this week.  So, nope, not blue and silver for anyone that knows me, although, it was going to be.  What with Duffy and Sarah both planning on building up the new Nighthaunts, I figured I would go with a bone, black and purple colour scheme.  Something that evoked the idea of death.  I imagine that my force will be guardians tasked with patrolling graveyards and such places, making sure the dead move on and don't linger or return to wreak havoc on the living.  Sounds plausible, right?

Full disclosure - still not sure this will be the final scheme, I figured I could do the 2 Shadespire Warbands like this before deciding if I was going to carry it on to the full army.

These guys were cleaned up and assembled on Wednesday, along with Garrek's Reavers (the Chaos Marauder/Bloodbound Warband from the starter)  I also spent some time working on Carver and some of the Razorboars for Mike's army, and built the Blighthaven Dwarf Golem I showed in my last post.

Thursday was spent working on the Farrow stuff and Dwarf Golem, along with 2 games of Shadespire as the minis were assembled (44-45/100), and Thursday was the same, played games 46-47, switching warbands to have Orcs versus Skaven.

Wrote up my May and June Month in Review posts on Saturday, played another 3 games of Shadespire (48-50), and finished off Mike's Carver and the 6 Razorboars he wants in the army colour scheme.

Cry Havoc and let loose the hogs of war!


You might wanna clean that...


The good news is that I'm now done to just 4 minis to paint for Mike's army, in a job that has dragged on way too long, thankfully he's now bugging me to discuss the next project, rather than slagging me rotten.  I have 2 Razorboars and a Razorback crew to do, RBC like the army, the Razorboars based on colour variations of my Project:  Top Secret force.  I should probably get that posted up as it isn't a secret anymore...

Full army so far.


Sunday and Monday, free time was spent making a start on my 4a Miniatures 15mm Dwarfs, I have a set of 11 on the go right now, with another 2 packs of 8 Swordsmen (Swordsdwarfs?) and 3 more Command figures to clean up and base.




 Tuesday and Wednesday were devoted to getting the Stormcast stuff primed and started, and I also managed to get Vandus Hammerhand and the Lord Relictor from the old starter assembled, along with the Knight-Heraldor (Trumpet Hero) I'd had lying around for ages, and the Forgeworld exclusive champion too.   Haven't glued them to bases yet, as I want something a bit more than just sand to match the Shadespire warbands.


So yeah, that's it for the moment.  Kids are itching to play Munchkin later, so that's more games played for the #hobbyresolution2018 tally.

Cheers,

John

SAGA Rampant! or "The miniatures went in 2 by 2"

This is one of those things that has ben floating around in my head for a while, and I figured I would try and make some sense of my jumbled thought process on the matter, and hopefully it is of some use to the people out there in internetland.




So, what exactly is SAGA Rampant?

Well, at a basic level, it is a plan borne from my endeavours to paint up "double-duty" miniatures.  A double-duty miniature being one that can be used for something besides it's intended purpose/system, and by way of example, I'm going to use my Conquest Normans.  Now, these were originally painted up for SAGA, but, having had a look over the books, I figured that I can easily adapt them to Lion or Dragon Rampant, hence the term SAGA Rampant.  Using these as I find Saga to be enjoyable for someone like myself who really isn't in to Historical gaming, it has enough of that Herohammer vibe about it with the Warlords generally being beasts in combat, and the various special abilities on the battle boards, and the Rampant games, as I really like the whole "wargaming lite" vibe of the Osprey books, and see them as a good entry point into various periods/styles of play (hence my plan to paint up a force for every one of them, but that's a different story.  Or blog post)

The basic foundation for this is how the armies are put together, Saga has 4/8/12 model units (at the basic level) and the Rampant series follows a 6/12 model/wound unit.  Looking at it, it is quite easy to plan out a 6pt Saga army that will translate directly to one of the Rampant games, as opposed to the "paint up some random stuff" approach I had originally had.

So, let's see how this works.

Generic Norman Army 6pts

Warlord
4 Mounted Hearthguard
4 Mounted Hearthguard
8 Warriors
8 Warriors
8 Warriors
12 Levy

OK, so it probably isn't the most optimal list, there's none of those lovely crossbows, whatever...  but we'll go with it.  So, breaking it down, we have

Chief dude
8 figures on horses
24 infantry with (most likely) spears and shields
12 infantry with bows.

Grabbing Lion Rampant and flipping to the Mustering your army section, we can immediately see we have enough mounted figures for a 6 model unit of Mounted Men-at-arms or Serjeants, let's put them down as Mounted Serjeants just now, for a 4pt spend.  Moving on to the infantry, our 24 warriors with spear and shield conviniently (amazingly so) split perfectly into 2 12 model units of Foot Yeomen at 3pts each (Total spend so far 10pts) and similarly, that 12 man levy unit becomes a 4pt Archer unit.

So thats

Mounted Serjeants - 4pts
2 x Foot Yeomen - 6pts
Archers - 4pts

So far, we've spent 14/24pts, and have 3 figures left spare right now, it's not enough for another unit, and 10pts is a lot to spend on upgrades.  But you can still play Saga, right?  Looking at it, painting another unit of Mounted Hearthguard for Saga would give you the option of adding a second unit of Mounted Serjeants (2 spare + 4) for another 4pts, taking you to 18/24pts, I guess you could spend 6pts on upgrades, or, being a dastardly Norman playe, you probably want to get those Crossbows on the field, so, add them to your Saga force, and assuming you can get a spare 4, that's another 4pts spent on Cossbowmen taking it to 22/24pts, and giving you 2pts for upgrades.

Lion Rampant Normans

2 x Mounted Serjeants - 8pts
2 x Foot Yeomen - 6pts
Archers - 4pts
Crossbowmen - 4pts
Upgrades - 2pts

Working it back, it translates to 8pts for Saga, so enough for a fully playable force with options.  There is also a sample Norman retinue in the book, classing the mounted models as Mounted Men-at-Arms, which eats up more points, and the Levy as Bidowers (although you are only using 6 of them), you'd still need 12 crossbowmen, but at a push, you could get away with painting the 8 you'd want for Saga and filling out the unit with 4 of the spare Levy.  Just make sure they die first.

Maybe it takes a little bit of fudging, but it's not a huge task to turn that Saga army into a playable Lion Rampant force.


Moving on to Dragon Rampant, it should be, if anything, easier to translate, as the Reduced model unit rules allows you to allocate multiple hits to a model and field less figures.  Let's be honest, you could drop every unit to a single figure with 6 or 12 wounds and play with about 6 models a side...  but it's not gonna look great, but it could be a handy way to get a handle on the rules.

So taking that original Saga force, it breaks down to

Heavy Riders - 4pts (6 wounds)
2 x Light Foot - 6pts (24 wounds)
Light Missiles - 4pts (12 wounds)

Again, coming in at 14/24pts and leaving the same 3 figures spare.  So, how do we make up those 10pts (other than upgrades).  The easiest thing is to class Mounted models as 2hits apiece, meaning your 6 mounted figures can actually be used as 2 units of Heavy Riders, immediately adding another 4pts, taking you to 18/24, from there, the quickest addition would be to paint up a mounted Warlord for Saga, and add him to the 2 remaining Hearthguard to form a 3rd unit of Heavy Riders taking you to 22/24pts, or class his unit as Elite Riders for 6pts and that takes you up to 24pts exactly.  Probably good news for those that don't want to sully their armies with fantastical rules and dirty great monsters.

Warlord and 2x Hearthguad or Elite Riders and 2x Heavy Riders?  Why not both?



Working it back, you've got exactly the same army as you started with for Saga, but now you have a mounted Warlord option too.  Bonus.


And that, is basically the gist of it, paint an army for a game, and with a few additions, you get options for the original game, or enough figures to play something else.  If you don't like playing something else, you haven't really lost anything other than a couple of hours, and you still have options for your original army.


So this is the plan I am following when it comes to painting up new stuff, aiming for a Saga style build to begin with, that can be expanded towards the Rampant games.  4-8 models is a pretty good number for batch painting, 12 can be a slog, but you can always break it down to 2x6.  It doesn't have to be strictly historical stuff either, I made a start on the Oathmark Dwarfs a couple of months back, with the idea that they would be a good "Counts as" Saxon or Viking force for Saga until the Fantasy sourcebook is released.

Dwarf Hearthguard.

Dwarf Warlord

Dwarf Priest

On a similar note, skirmish games gives you a start into building up units for more massed battles, the Dacian Warband I am painting up for Broken Legion's, using the Frostgrave Barbarians can be expanded into Fierce/Bellicose Foot for the Rampant games (mixed weaponry won't really matter) or a more Hollywood style Viking force for Saga.  They'll also be great for playing Blood Eagle, which just adds to the options I have for games.

3 Men short of a Saga Warrior unit.

It's not just limited to 28-30mm scale stuff either.  I recently threw out a challenge to the 15mm Fantasy Gaming group to do a slo-gro "fantasy" Saga army over 6 months, and make it a playable Dragon Rampant army by painting up enough spare models to bulk out the units.  It was more a personal project, but I opened it up to the group to get others on board.  I had originally planned on doing a mostly mounted force using the Copplestone 15mm Barbarians and Northlanders, but settled instead for Dwarfs, using the awesome 4a Miniatures ones (which Andy still doesn't have up on the webstore, but has at shows, so bug him about it to get them up there if you want some) 


Blame these guys for the change of plan.

 Seeing as there isn't a book to go by for Fantasy Saga, it's basically paint 4/8/12 models a month to count as something for Saga until we have a book.  I'm going with the Dwarfs being Vikings, because it is the most generic list in my opinion, but I also get to go a bit wild with some Berserker types.  Painted up my Counts as Warlord last month, one of the Blighthaven Dwarven Warmachine models (without the crew) and I have 3 packs of the 4a Dwarfs to get started.  Hopefully there will be some new releases by the time I get them done.


I'm just a warmachine, painted for fantasy, give me a kiss or 3, and I'm fine...


Of course there are plenty of other games out there beyond Saga and the Rampants, I know I'll revisit God of Battles once the Dwarfs start piling up, and that will probably prompt painting up a second army...


So yeah, that's basically the whole thought process laid out, paint 4/8/12 models at a time for Saga, either a real force or proxy/count as models, and see about expanding them into usable units for other games.  It's never an excessive amount of painting breaking it down into chunks like that, and you can slowly build up your forces and options to play multiple games.  It's not going to be for everybody, but, if you are stuck in a rut, or don't know where to aim for next in your hobbying, it might be worth a try.

Productive painting and happy gaming until next time,

Cheers,

John.

Month in Review x2 - May/June 2018

So, I wasn't lying when I said things might be delayed huh?

The car issues basically put paid to the last couple of weeks of May, and part of June, not helped by work and the unfeasibly unScottish weather...   so, hobbying kinda took a backseat, broke my streak due to being stuck away from my stuff, and kinda lost the will to do it for a bit whilst the world crashed down around me...


Right, let's recap May then shall we?

1 - Transfer my flip-top paint collection to dropper bottles. (8/519)
Nope.

2 - Organise and run a two day Warmahordes event, (1/1)
Already complete.




3 - Make £500 selling old models. (20/500)
Nope.
 

4 - Maintain the Blog with weekly and monthly updates. (16/52 and 4/12)
Ahahahahahahahahahaaa.  Totally ruined.


5 - Go to 2 Gaming Shows or Conventions. (2/2)
Carronade makes 2 to complete this.


6 - Play 6 New Opponents. (6/6)

Done already.


7 - Play 100 Games (41/100)
Almost at the halfway point thanks to Welsh Masters and some pick-up games.



8 - Play 6 different Board Games. (3/6)
None played this month.

9 - Play 3 New Games or New Editions of Rules (3/3)
Already complete.


10 - Paint 4pts of Normans for SAGA. (4/4pts, 21/28 models)
Already Complete.

11 - Maintain Butcher's Guild being fully painted. (0/3 Models)
Nope. 
12 - Paint remaining Deathguard for Warhammer 40,000 (0/50 Models)
Nope. 
13 - Paint Waiqar half of Runewars Miniatures Game Starter (0/26 Models)
Guess what?  Nope.


14 - Paint a 15mm Hordes of the Things Army (14/14 Elements)

Already Complete.

15 - Paint a 75pt Warmahordes List (73/73 Models)

Knocked out the park.  Painted 3 x 75pt lists for Welsh Masters, and 2 of them could hit the table at the same time.  (I think)

16 - Paint the Hog Wild Malifaux box (6/6 Models)
Already Complete.


So time for some numbers then?

Painted 27 models this month.

 Played 11 games of 100, which averaged out to about 3 a week seeing as the end of the month was a write-off...


Have now finished 8 of my Hobby Resolutions, so that's half of them done before the year is half done.  Pretty good going.


Current #hobbystreakday - 149 (to 29th May)

And straight into June I guess.



1 - Transfer my flip-top paint collection to dropper bottles. (83/519)
Nope.  Just kidding, look at that jump.   I'm not sure it's actually 83 this year, but I now have 83 GW or Foundry paints in dropper bottles.   I figure I can tidy the number up over time once I get through more as it will be less to count...   This was partly prompted by the fact I needed to get back to doing some hobbying, and partly because some of those Foundry paints are aging badly and the pot lids are cracking and splitting. 

2 - Organise and run a two day Warmahordes event, (1/1)
Already complete.




3 - Make £500 selling old models. (20/500)
Nope.
 

4 - Maintain the Blog with weekly and monthly updates. (16/52 and 6/12)
Not gonna make up those missed #workbenchWednesday posts, so I'll have to get something up in their place, but getting that double Month in Review typed up now.


5 - Go to 2 Gaming Shows or Conventions. (2/2)
Already Done.   But went to the Phoenix Lakeland Wargames Exhibition.


6 - Play 6 New Opponents. (6/6)

Done already.


7 - Play 100 Games (50/100)
Hit that halfway point.



8 - Play 6 different Board Games. (5/6)
Had to take the old man's car into Stirling for it's service so spent the wait at Common Ground Games.  Had a tester game of Shadespire, followed by Fury of Dracula.

9 - Play 3 New Games or New Editions of Rules (3/3)
Already complete.


10 - Paint 4pts of Normans for SAGA. (4/4pts, 21/28 models)
Already Complete.

11 - Maintain Butcher's Guild being fully painted. (0/3 Models)
Nope. 
12 - Paint remaining Deathguard for Warhammer 40,000 (0/50 Models)
Nope. 
13 - Paint Waiqar half of Runewars Miniatures Game Starter (0/26 Models)
Guess what?  Nope.


14 - Paint a 15mm Hordes of the Things Army (14/14 Elements)

Already Complete.

15 - Paint a 75pt Warmahordes List (73/73 Models)

Already Done.

16 - Paint the Hog Wild Malifaux box (6/6 Models)
Already Complete.


So time for some numbers then?

Painted 16 models this month.

 Played 9 games of 100,turns out Shadespire is really quick to play and racked up a few games with that.


No additional #hobbyresolution2018 projects done, but was already at the halfway point, so that's OK I guess, plus made a bit of a dent into that paint transfer number.


Current #hobbystreakday - 17


Numbers below for how it's looking, I have a few things to post up, like Welsh, and stuff I've painted, but I'll leave that for another time.

Cheers,

John
