Seven Days to Go!

I got a fair amount done last night, here's a few snapshots of things as they are...

Incubi & Urien...almost done!

Eight painting days left!

The Incubi just need to get their bases painted after the sand dries, and Urien needs the same plus some touch ups here and there and a little more work on the skin on his freak-arms. Here's a few photos of how things have worked out!

Battle Report - Bobby's Ultramarines vs. Daddy's Orks!

He's been helping Daddy play for many years, and has had some simple games, but now we're diving in to real game rules, mechanics, and starting to learn really how to play!
Yes, it's a kid's train table...perfect!

Dark Eldar Painting: Work in Progress

Well, here it is less than 2 weeks from the tournament, and I'm not even three-color legal yet. It's going to be a lot of long painting nights ahead to get these guys done to the level I want them to be!

I did come up with a relatively fast way to do the Incubi that will not only get them pretty in a relatively short time, but make them stand out amongst my army.

Not hobby related at all, but amusing and I wanted to share.

They're installing a security system around the outdoor facility where I work. While digging to put in the cabling, they unearthed a bone:

Is it human? Deer? Space Alien? Hard to say...I'm contacting the police in case it's the former: if it were my missing kid, I'd like to know!

Gaming, Etc Tournament, Stratford CT

My first tournament with the Baron! Many of my Ordo brothers and I took the arduous 1 hour journey to Stratford on Sunday to play in their 1750 tournament. There were about 20 people playing (I think it was 10 tables?), and 8 of us were from Ordo! Awesome!

Battle Report: 1750 Dark Eldar vs. Ultramarines

My good friend Rodrigo and I are preparing for a 1750 tournament next weekend at Gaming, Etc in Stratford, CT. I've never been to this venue, but am told it's a nice place to play with nice people, and it's only about 45 minutes from home!

The expected format is ~30 players, 3 games at 2.5 hours each at 1750 points. They do not require full painting, but give extra points for fully painted, based, wysiwyg, and I think there was a free point for bringing a piece of terrain.

Kabal of the Blackened Sun vs Night Lords (counts as BA)

One of my Ordo brothers has been toying with this idea for awhile now: he loves Chaos Marines, hates the CSM codex, so wants to do Night Lords using the Blood Angels book. I LOVE his army concept...all Assault Marines backed up by some Devastators and some "elite" infantry. We were able to get a test game in, using mostly proxy for him, last Friday!

Baron Malagant's Kabal takes to the skies!

I've almost finished assembling all the new parts for my latest Dark Eldar force, and actually got it on the table for a game last week!

Quiet in gaming world...

My oldest son started Pop Warner Football in August. He's 7, and I think he's starting to regret the is a lot of work! His practices are every weekday from 6-8pm. Yikes! I've had almost no time for gaming, but have managed to get some Vassal time in.
