Blank dice in!!

Ok, since SAGA is having issues without having dice in stock anywhere, I went and bought some blank dice till that issue is corrected. I ordered from from seller Cloud9Shopping and received in the mail 3 out of the 4 items. So now I am stuck with just 18 dice, missing 6 dice kinda sucks.  Hope to get this order corrected and get the rest of my dice in.

Working on trees.

Finally it is my weekend and free from work, my plan is to get some trees all done and hills repainted. I got a few trees off and got most of them based. I hope to punch these out by tomorrow.

Picture wasn't showing on my last post....

Ok the picture wasn't showing properly, I just fixed it.  Now it is working properly. Sorry people.

SAGA Vikings

Figured I would put up some SAGA Vikings I got going on. At least some of my better work.

I am here to return your priest...

He just wouldn't give up the gold.

Games Workshop Rohan Fine Cast.... What can I say well highly detailed but because it is of a soft material the spear and flag pole I cut off and replaced were so poorly thought out. Why didn't they just include metal spears for the miniatures I do not know, so guess what I did, I cut them out, drilled the hands out and put in a paperclip in place (I misplaced my brass rods). I may need to replace the sword on the guy with the bright green cape, I tried to straiten it but it still has a curve in it. I will end up cutting out the sword and put either a metal one or a plastic one, but for now I will leave it be.  Oh forgot to say I had some little head pieces for the flag poles, one is a pig and the other a horse, It's cropped out of the picture but will have it in other shots later on.

Perry Miniature - North American FarmHouse (WIP)

As you can see I have finished off the washes on the roof and house proper, I went over with highlighting, then randomized some individual roof shingles to make it pop out a bit more and not look so uniform. There is shading on the house itself with highlight that you may not be able to see in the picture, it was a very light gray wash and of course highlight back up to white on raised areas.

Picture of front of house.
Here is a video of the house with work in progress, I may do touch up depending on how clean I want the house to look.

What needs to be done:

  1. Ground cover painted.
  2. Place in vegetation like grass bushes and some wooden barrels.
  3. Put some wear and tear in the porch perhaps or just leave it.
  4. Add in little things like chairs, chickens, etc.
  5. Matt Varnish the whole thing.

Saga games thus far

So far i have had about ten games of 1v1 with only losing three. Game has been fun so far. My last game I lost using Saxon. Hard to use these guys at five points. I think six will be good. I hope to win today game with will start in a few minutes.

Update: barely won by points, had one bad rolling on a great attack. Pulled it off barely, if it went on i may have been in trouble.

Muskets and Tomahawks just arrived!!

So far I like the book, I will be reading more and more as time goes by. But I still have to focus on my SAGA at the moment. My Local hobby shop just got in a viking ship, I put it aside so I can buy it next month.  Time for bed and my day off to go and hang around the game store with the other guys.  =)

SAGA Fatigue markers from Battle Flag

I ordered two sets of fatigue markers. Quality is good and i like the designs. Because it is laser cut/engraved it has a burnt smell to it. I put a matt varnish to cut down the smell.

I figure since I was restarting my blog, I would start to post the things I have done. This is a build up and painted terrain piece that I had done using Tamiya sandbags and walls. I feel I did a pretty good job on this one and thought I would share.

Farmhouse update

Went over with a wash and the first highlight for the roof. Will get another lighter highlight after I get home tonight.

Perry Miniatures North American Farm House

I have started painting the Perry Miniatures North American Farm House. Though the model looks not to bad, it did take a bit of prep work to get it ready to paint. I plan on using it for "Muskets and Tomahawks", a game by Studio Tomahawk.
