Just a quick battle report from this last week at Misty Mountain Games.  The local Bolt Action crew has been picking up and gaming pretty regularly at Misty on Thursday nights.  This week we had six players with 3 games going!  Here’s the action from my game; my US Army against Donavon’s Italians in a 1000pt game using boltaction.net rules.

2 Vampire Character Conversions

IMG_20140813_162702722_HDRI don’t think there has been a podcast that I mentioned these guys on besides maybe saying I had more plans for conversions after the hellsteed vampire.  I’ll probably mention them in Episode 53.  These are two vampire models I did some conversions on that were pretty quick and easy but made for some really cool unique models.

Vampire on Hellsteed

I think this guy was mentioned in Episode 53 which we recorded right after I finished him.  This guy as the title says is a vampire on hellsteed that I converted up out of a few different kits as there isn’t any model for one at the moment.  Although I was hoping I’d have it done in a week when I started I still actually got this done pretty quick in only about 2 weeks.  I took a fair amount of work in progress pics and put them together with my thought process in this post for you all to check out.

How I Paint My Ghouls

FINALLY…I posted my ghouls to the blog!

Incase you missed hearing it mentioned one of the numerous times on the show over the past year or so this is Brian following up with the painting guide for my ghouls.  This is the second unit I have ever worked on after getting my hands on the How to Paint Citadel Models book so long ago.  The step by step pictures in that book really worked to get me started painting. The technique is really simple process of base coat, wash, layer and highlight easy for any beginner to pick up.  While the models don’t end up anything golden daemon worthy, the technique results in a very good table top quality or I’ve be told even slightly above that.  Most importantly I am happy with how they look and am proud when I put them on the table top.  While this won’t be interesting or impressive to the seasoned painter I hope any beginners or people skeptic of their skill find this inspiring to get paint on their models.
