Project Battlefield: Phase 1 Complete

Hello Everyone!

It is done!  The three terrain pieces I wanted off my paint table are finally done.  Here's the last of them:

The Eternity stair is complete!  That`s the last of the full GW kits I had lying around waiting to get painted.  So here are all three kits I finished in all their glory:

Sorry for the quality of the photo...I honestly need to make a proper picture taking station.  I have really bad lighting in my apartment.

Now I'm calling this portion of my Terrain project done for now.  I have a few extra bits from kits that I bought off Ebay.  Mostly stuff from the Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game and a few pieces from a Garden of Morr kit.  I have a bunch of ideas I want to get to work on but I also want to clear off my paint table.  So without further ado...

Prince Apophas for my AoS Project "The Breaking of the Averholme."   Now that I have my Characters out of the way I must focus on troops, but I got to clear my paint table first!

Wish me luck,

Project Battlefield: Works in Progress

Hello Everyone!

So I haven't been able to get much painted in the last two weeks and it is all my fault.  You see, as I get older I cannot seem to come to the understanding that I cannot dive and roll while playing sports as well as I could when I was younger.  I have been taught this lesson multiple times in the last few years but it never seem to stick.

As a result I dislocated my arm....again....for the 5th time.

So while it is healing I though I would put together a Battle Report!....or at least I planned on that.

It was just a 1000 point game of 9th Age, Goblins Vs Ogres. (As can be seen above) My Goblins are only half done but they were done enough that I figured I could give them a test run against the Hard hitting Ogres.  I thought MAYBE my Ogres would get their first win as I didn't see the Goblins having much of a chance against my hard hitting Ogres.

That is until the above happened.  Ogres really need to get the charge off and, as we can see, being triple charge by a Wolf Chariot, a Scrap Wagon and a block of 30 Goblins is just too much even for the Ogres.  The game was over by turn two as the Giant on the right also ran down the Yetis.

So no Battle Report this week as it would probably be the most boring battle report ever.  I hope to have a rematch soon though, so be ready for it!

In the meantime I thought I'd share something I just got in the mail:

Man I can't wait to get to work on this.  I've been looking for more things to do with my Bones Miniatures and I figured I'd go through the Monster Table and paint them up for a "maybe" Frostgrave campaign in the near future (Once I finish my Terrain that is).

That's it for now!  I'll update again soon.

Project Battlefield: The Forests of the Averholme

Hello again all!

So I'm back with an update on my Terrain project.  Despite my sickness over the weekend I managed to finish up the last two trees on my painting table.  I also managed to get them magnetized to the base to help prevent the trees from falling all over the place....mind you it can still happen with a significant bump, but I still call it a rousing success!

So here it is in all it's glory:

They came out far better then I had expected and I'm happy enough with the results I might just get another set.  Mind you that will only be after I finish up all the other stuff I have lying around.

So now for my next work in progress!

It's all put together and ready for a base coat.  I will probably keep the paint job simple like with what I did to the Dreadfire Portal.  I'm on a roll now!  Hopefully I can even get it done by next week.
