Wizardry in Progress 3/14/18

It's the last Wednesday before Adepticon, the pressure is on to get projects finished and everything ready to go.

I can happily report that my Admech army is now finished and ready for games. Let's take a look at what has happened in the last week.

Let's Paint - Orange Kastelan Robot

Hey everybody, after doing a couple videos for the Cybernetica Datasmith and the Sydonian Dragoon, I feel like I can safely say; welcome to a new feature of the site, the Let's Paint video series!

In this series, I will be painting a miniature from start to finish in time lapse video. They are really fun to make and share and I hope to keep this to a once a week feature. But with Adepticon around the corner, I'm unsure about keeping that pace until after the event.

But for now, let's paint a Kastelan Robot, shall we?

Miniature Monday: Blood Bowl: Tri-City Sentinels

When Blood Bowl was released, I was all about it. The hype train was full steam ahead and I was so stoked at getting it painted and on the table.

The first order of business was to paint up the human side of the game, which I have written about earlier, but the bases weren't finished and I didn't get any nice pictures of them, so I kinda jumped the gun a little bit on posting about them.

But, that's all fixed now. Let's take a look!

Wizardry in Progress 3/7/18

The pressure builds as Adepticon nears!

The army progress chart is filling up and the forcing is coming together nicely. This week, I finished another robo and got started on the next one in the batch.

We're down to two Kastelan Robots needed for Adepticon, let's take a look.

Miniature Monday - Sydonian Dragoon

The last Sydonian Dragoon is all finished and its time for a legit write up on him!

He had a bit of conversion work and was a blast to paint up. It also seemed to take less time to do than the first one, probably because I had the previous paint job to use as reference and didn't have to figure out what parts needed to be which colors.

Wizardry in Progress 2/28/18

February is over and Adepticon is now less than a month away and the pressure is on!

I am now on to the last 4 Kastelan Robots. So that means from here on out its all robos all the time. Over the last week I've managed to finish one and get a decent amount of progress on the next one too. Also I finished the vats in a mad dash to get them done before the tournament on Saturday.

Let's take a look!

Miniature Monday: Jasper Nivens, Sorcerer

We recently started a new Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 campaign and that means, a new character!

Usually in D&D I like playing rogues or rangers and stealthy types. But I wanted to try something different and went with a caster class, the sorcerer.

Since I'm usually a rogue player I like small races and went with a Ghostwise Halfling for my race choice. Unfortunatly, finding a suitable halfling miniature for a caster is no fun at all. You can find gnomes all day long, but more halflings look like either knock-off Bilbo Baggins or are rogues.

With that in mind, I looked at gnome miniatures instead and found the miniature that I was looking for.

Wizardry in Progress 2/21/18

February is nearly over already and my local Warhammer 40k group is having a tournament this weekend, and I desperately needed to get the Sydonian Dragoon finished for it.

I'm happy to report that I have finished it and also started on my objective markers.

Let's take a look at what has happened over the passed week!

Miniature Monday - Blue Kastelan Robot

Kastelan Robots are probably my favorite model in the Adeptus Mechanicus line of Warhammer 40,000 models. They're big stompy bots, which aren't cyborgs and need to be controlled by a handler in order to operate on the battlefield.

They also are very old, in 40k terms, older than the Imperium of Man. That gave me plenty of ideas to go with.

For my army, I knew that I wanted to have the robots in diffferent colors than the green that is seen across the rest of my army. The idea being that these guys collect robos and use parts from other fallen robots to rebuild two downed robos into one operational robo.

The first of many Kastelan Robots, this guy was my test run on painting them as much as he was also my first one for my army. His eyes were also the subject of my tutorial on painting glowing eyes.

Let's take a look.

Wizardry in Progress 2/14/18

The brushes of progress continue to paint and in the past week I've managed to finish the Skitarii Vanguard squad, start on the actual model for the next Sydonian Dragoon, build another Robo and more terrain, including an update to the Tech-Priest Dominus.

Its been a busy week, let's take a look!
