The Wyld Ones


Managed to get some paint on The Wyld Ones Troupe at last, these are more in their stage role that battle role, so I when it comes to the table top the 4 Wardancers will be armed with the Harlequins Kiss, the 2 Waywatchers with knives are the 2 with Fusion Pistols... Now I just need to write that down so I don't forget.
Next up is the last Troupe although I may just end up bouncing some minis around squads to free up a Warlock for my last Troupe.

Reading


Not had much time to hobby recently but I have had a bit of time to read... I recently read for the umpteeth time Against A Dark Background by Iain M Banks, this is by far one of my favourite books and it has a hard sci-fi style and an amazing feeling of age.
I've also read again The Chase and Wilde books by Andy McDermott

If you're after a "summer block buster" type if story with some historical pointers and there is always a car chase, these are great. Also tucked in that picture is a Murakami cover, I've read a few of his books as well and like Banks fiction he takes the normal everyday and slowly de-normalises it and makes it something dark.

I also started reading How Few Remain again but I seem to have misplaced my copy again...
Around these I've read The Masque Of Vile, Scars and Betrayer as well as The Legacy Of Caliban series from 40K, I quite liked Cypher in that one. I feel the need to read some Pratchette soon as well as some more Banks and I might just dig out some Michael Marshall Smith as I've not read those in a while. Till my next book post, keep reading

Reworked Skyweavers


Got the 4 original homebrew Skyweavers out yesterday and reprinted them to match the paint style of the other 4. I also added a cannon under one and a haywire cannon on one of the bikes from the second squadron, I just need to get 4 more of this style to finish the second Squadron off. The rest will be either proper Skyweavers or a mix of Reavor Jet Bikes and Eldar Jet Bikes.

Missed This


Well that was a big week, Specialist Games studio announced (although don't expect anything before 2018). Now the above image comes a post today on BoLS from the open day that seems largely to have gone under the radar. To me that looks like an epic Warlord Titanic...

Monthly Vow October To November

So close, just one Wraithlord away... I failed again, but with waving a child off to China and work falling apart again, I was closer than I thought I would be...

The home brew Skyweavers and the 2nd Banshee Exarch.

Banshee Exarch.

Lady Aave of The Exodites Of Telvig in 3 of her 4 forms.

And the other 2 painted in the Ghost Army colours.

The Troupe Of The Heroic Dead for my Masque, these are in their stage aspect rather than war aspect.

And the red hands let me know which ones have Kisses.

I re-painted this old Eldar Ghost Warrior and have placed it in my Star Players, so I can get away with using this army down at Warhammer World.

First objective marker.


The Shadowseers and Death Jesters for the 2 remaining Troupes, The Wyld Ones and The Nobility Of Old.

The finished Skyweavers, I took these in a game on Sunday and only lost 2 wounds off them, and they took out an assassin with mass shuriken fire.

And a re-paint for Jussi Nietos.

Well first up is to finish Grandmother Aave, my 3rd Wraithlord and first Wraith Seer, need to check my bank to make sure I've been paid before I start buying stuff on ebay today, but that chap up there is getting some friends to round out the Wyld Ones, the Nobility will have to wait till next month... where was I, yes so a Wraith Seer, 10 more Harlequins, and another Spirit Warrior/ War Walker will do for this month, hopefully my hours will stabilise a bit and I can get some free time.

Re-Worked Jussi Nietos, Also Skyweaver Riders


Got a tiny bit of hobby done this week, although most of my spare time was taken up with getting a couple of army lists up for a game I had at the weekend.
First thing I polished off was the Skyweavers

I got some black and orange on them and applied a nuln oil wash.
The same night I also re-painted Jussi Nietos



I tried doing some blending on the face, would welcome some c&c on this.

Nearly There.


Got the chance to put paint to mini yesterday, got a few bits and pieces done basically for the Harlequins. Above is the bits I painted up for The Heroic Dead, I painted 4 of the Troopers hands in red, this is so I can work out which ones have kisses, I also touched up a couple of bits on the Shadowseer and Death Jester to tie them into the Troupe.


I also did the same for The Wyld Ones Shadow Seer and Death Jester


As well as the Wild Cards, although I'm using the names of cards from The Major Arcanea in a Tarot deck of cards.
Plan for tonight is to get the second lot of 4 Skyweaver Riders finished off.

Awesome Cos Play


The Facebook page Being A Geek shared this photo today, I'd really love a closer look at the 'nid cos-player.

Objective Marker


Wow nearly 2 weeks without getting any painting done. Was supposed to have a day off yesterday but that message may not have reached my co-workers... Got some time at the gym in the morning and watched Spectre in the afternoon, (my review of that is it's James Bond does the birth of Hydra, and yes I think this will be Daniel Craig's last showing as Bond).
Once home I had a little time to get some painting done.





I started what I thought was going to be a nice easy one, something I could get done in an evening, I wasn't far wrong, I got the oxide wash on and a wash of Darken Darkside on it. I now need to get a white dry brush on it and paint the Masque Rune on the banner.

This is as close as I'll be getting for new until the new guy gets his own box release of getting the Forge World and GW Contemptor side by side.



My 2
