A Tale of Wrath

I just got a cool email sending me over to the Screwed Up Dice Blog.  In there, they are doing something really cool that I am going to toss my hat into the right for.  Ages ago, I took part in many Tale of Four Gamers back in my GW Days.  This was a chance to get some of the models finished that I had started and play some games with them.  I always liked the idea because even if I was hobbying at home, It was part of a bigger plan.  It wasn't just adding a new cool unit to an army, it was going towards the overall goal of the To4G.  So now, I get to do it all again with a new game system.

Here is the first post by the guys at Screwed Up Dice:


We are at Month Zero.  Here are the goals:

-Spread the word about A Tale of Wrath - Check!
-Read the Rulebook - Check!
-Choose a house - Hadross or Nasier, Check!
-Sign Up for A Tale of Wrath on Screwed Up Dice - Check!
-Prepare for the months of Building, Painting and Gaming - Wait for it... gotta grab a coke.


Tonight I will be going over my final choices and decide which House I will be playing from.  I just want to go over each Houses options one last time.

Afternoon all!

Well, It was a pretty busy week.  I didn't get much done in the way of the Hobby.  I got the bases worked on a bit for my Brood and built a hero for my Age of Sigmar force.  I did get out and ran a few demos for Dark Age.  I got a date for the first full Demo Day at Terracrux in Tacoma Washington.  It will be on February 27th from 12-4(or later).  Once I get the flyer from the shop, I will post it here too!   Hopefully next week, more pics!

Order up!

Good morning Interwebz,

Well, its been a crazy week.  My fiancee is recovering well from surgery but it has made for a rough week.  I didn't reach the goals I had set for myself.  But, I did get some work done.  I got the flesh most of the way finished up on The Brood.

I also played with the GW Technical Paint - Nurlge's Rot.  It has a good gooey texture and should work well in the bases I have planned for The Brood.  I tried filling up one of the well bases from CMON as well as just painting a thin layer down.  It hold well, I might mix it with a touch of water effects to get a thicker appearance.

I also got most of the base coating done on my Fire Caste Dragyri, which will be one of my two demo sets for Dark Age.

And I got the flesh, hair and armour plates starter on my Gortisi Wolves for my Wrath of Kings demo.

Also, I got a huge chunk of my Khorne Deamons built but no pictures of them yet.  So at the end of the week, Yearly Painted Model Goal - 0/160.

Until next time, Cheers!

Light 'em up!

Hello 2016.  After muddling around for a few years, I want to get back to blogging.  My goal to start, is one update a week.  Like always, I will be doing 87,312 projects at once.  Because a gamer cannot die until all their toys are painted, right?  So here are some projects on the table:

- All things Dark Age - I have a Brood army, K3, Forsaken and Dragyri.

-Wrath of Kings - I have a demo army of Gortisi and Nasier and a personal army of Hadross

-Age of Sigmar - Khorne Bloodbound

-Infinity - There will be a league at my LGS and I want to get an army for it.  Still not sure which army it will be but I want to bust out a 300pt list

-Terrain - I have a gaming table in the War Room and now I just want some good looking terrain for gaming on.  I am looking at getting some gaming mats, I think they would look great.

Back Burner Projects

-X-Wing Repaints - There are a few models I'd like to repaint just for fun but will get to them when I can.

-40k - Tau.  I have loved them since they were released.  The new plastics are sweet, its just a matter of getting some paint slapped on them.

-Malifaux - Wyrd has some great models and the game is fun but it hasn't been striking my fancy since my old gaming group broke up.

Also, for they year, I have a painted model goal.  My year end goal is 160 painted models.  Fully painted and based.  As of today, I am at 0/160.  I do have 25 Brood that are base coated and my weekend goal.  Thanks for checking in, next week I should have some pictures!

Workin at Lunch- 06.12.12

Good afternoon,

 Today, I was able to finish up the two platoons of M4A3 (late) Sherman tanks and my Abrams in his Easy Eight.  I got most of the work done just before work over the past two days and during lunch today.  It is humid as all get out so priming models is a no go for the next few days.  Tomorrow, I hope to get all of the .50Cal MGs drilled and into place before I try to prime these bad boys.  If things go right, I should be able to apply my new US Armour Wash to these guys and have them table ready in no time!

Thanks for reading,

Playin' at Lunch- 06.08.12

Today, I got to roll some Dice with Bruce.  We played an 825 point game and had some fun.  We had to wait until the work day was over to finish it but in the end, it came down to one of my infantry platoons shooting down some of his German Grenadiers as they charged into combat on turn 5.  When they died, it would have forced a Company Morale but his Commander and 2iC were both dead.  I tried to take pictures for a battle report so they didn't look so hot.  Anyone have any input for taking picutres of a battlefield for a battle report?

Workin at Lunch- 06.07.12

Hello happy readers!

Well, here we are at Thursday.  Today, I got a good little bit of work done on my Army as well as a work project.  Today, I finished my M1 90mm guns, extra crew and command team.  I also got some of the guns for all those gun crew I have built cleaned up and in the works.  Tomorrow, there wont be another article but a potential battle report!  I will be squaring off with one of the other guys in the office, Bruce.  His Germans vs my 'Mericans at 825 points.  Wish me luck!

Thanks for reading!
