Greetings. Another day another blog post. This is a very short one as I thought I'd put up my newly varnished Ratlings. Not much to say about these models except they are filling out my sniper unit to 10, fully painted models. These models were previously Dettoled and hastily stripped so there are still a few lumpy bits on them, hence no very close ups. If nothing else these models will hopefully spell the demise of more than a few Orks in the upcoming campaign...
Again moving in my sort of usual rhythm for painting. After a big project that takes months I like to take a break and just do some fun speed painting. Board game minis are perfect for this and Star Wars miniatures are really a lot of fun to paint. Painted up these two in about three hours. ...
To further mire myself in the narrative campaign that hasn't yet started, I thought I'd write some backstorys for my characters in the upcoming hostilities. Hopefully the characters below will only be the first of many fleshed out ideas that will come from the battles to be fought over the next few months. Farg Woolstrop Farg is the supreme commander of the Krablokistan 47th regiment. Although he is a loyal servant of the Imperium and a dedicated adherent to the Imperial Cult he has found himself at odds with both Rouboute Gullimann and Saint Celestine in the now infamous Mitigation of...
As I alluded to in my previous post, myself and Dylan are embarking on a campaign. To me the campaign is the epitome of war-gaming so I'm pretty stoked. It's going to be set on an as yet unnamed Imperial planet. The combatants are Astra Militarum (probably the Krablokistan 47th) and the Orks of Waaagh Gitsmasha. Dylan is providing the fluff and I will write updates as I am able. Hopefully the campaign will be similar to the Andy Chambers narrative campaign from the 90's White Dwarfs which I will try to dig out to get a better feel for that sort of thing...
Or really any model company. Do you know what would be really really really helpful? If you could publish PDF files that contained outlines of the armor plates of the various models (specifically vehicles, but shields and stuff would be cool too) that we could use to a) use as templates for cutting out decals and b) practicing painting (and applying decals). I spent this evening trying to create a decal template so I could cut out a decal to fit the shape of my renegade knight's shin armor. Ultimately, I ended up cutting out more than I really wanted too 'cause the original template made from...
Finally!!!So glad to have completed work on this model! I've spent a ridiculous amount of time working on this one. Easily the most time I've ever spent on any one painting project. I don't think I even want to try and estimate how many hours. It's finished though and I am very happy with how it's turned out. It's certainly among my best work if not thee best. ...
