Poe Dameron X-Wing Repaint

Front Right

Well it may be a little late with the Heroes of the Resistance coming fairly soon but I had started this just before its announcement.  I’m still glad I did it and I have a Poe Dameron black and orange x-wing before the release.  I wasn’t going for super detailed but I would have to say the quality is still better than a stock model so there is some satisfaction there as well.  Here’s a look at mine and a bit of a guide if you want to do this repaint.

Sci Fi Communications Array

2016-05-02 21.15.28This is a cool little piece of terrain I worked up that I received from Warlord Games when I bought the Gates of Antares starter box on pre-order (which looks like a really cool game that I want to play some time soon).

Episode 68: The 9th Age

Episode 68

In this episode, our hosts talk about square bases! Yes, that’s right, but it’s not Warhammer, it’s The Ninth Age. A new fantasy battles game that is now in version 1 and plays much like that old game with square bases we used to play. We are joined by special guest Fergus who has played not only in a couple of GT’s now but also ran the tournament at Adepticon for The Ninth Age at Adepticon.

If you are interested in The Ninth Age, the rules, the game, or just more information make sure you check out the website where all of the rules are free and available at the-ninth-age.com

With that, let’s roll those dice! Wisco’s for the win!!!!

Fledgling Infinity PanO Army Taking Shape

My Infinity PanOceania is growing. The Cutter was part of my master airbrushing class at Adepticon that we were allowed to walk away with. It’s so huge compared to the normal infantry and a ton of points. Of course, I have no idea how actually good it is in the game. We’ll find out. I also built Gaurda de Assalto blister pack. All I have left for PanO now to put together is one box of Auxilia. Not sure what to add to my list next. If you guys out there have some ideas, I would love to hear about it. So far, here’s what I have models for:

  • Father Knight from Operation Icestorm
  • Fusilier – Combi Rifle
  • Fusilier – Combi Rifle
  • Fusilier – Combi Rifle
  • Akalis – Combi Rifle, E/Mitter
  • Nisse – Multi Sniper Rifle
  • Orc Trooper – Multi Rifle
  • Guarda de Assalto – Spitfire
    • Auxbot – Light Shotgun/Zero-V Smoke Grenade Launcher
  • 2 Auxilia – Combi Rifle (Not Pictured, still building)
    • Auxbot – Heavy Flamethrower (Not Pictured, still building)
  • Cutter – Multi HMG

So, it’s growing

Infinity PanOceania

So back at Gen Con I picked up Operation Icestorm, which is a two player starter for the game Infinity which is made by Corvus Belli. At Adepticon I was able to get a basic demo, basically playing out the first scenario in that starter and I have to say I really like the game and can see why so many Warhammer players have jumped to it. In this post I am going to show you a little bit of what I have been working on with the models and I am going to let you know what my top 3 things where that I really liked about the game. Expect this series of blog posts continue as I try out the game more and learn more about the game and what makes this game both fun and still complex for the veteran players.

So I started by painting up the new Infinity PanOceania models, which are all metal. They are a little fiddly I think to put together. They are not heroic scale, but a true 28mm scale which makes some of the joints really small. Coupled with filing mold lines is a bit of a pain too. I do really like painting metal models and I feel like paint always goes on metal models better which is a plus in my book. So far, I have 2 of the fusilier models painted up and close to having my third. It’s a small model count game, so it’s really nice to be able to take my time on each figure, work on the detail and highlighting, and feel like I have a really good accomplishment done when each model is completed.
