Picking a Warmachine or Hordes faction

So there is a new version of Warmachine/Hordes coming out and it has intrigued me enough to consider playing again. There are some interesting rule changes being made and it seems as if some work has been done to streamline the game. I won’t say ‘simplify’ as I don’t think that is the intent but what I have read so far looks good.

Part of the decision making process is finding some people to play casual games of Warmachine. There are a fair number of local players but a lot of them seem to be tournament/competitive gamers and that really isn’t my idea of fun. The store will be running a Journeyman League and that may be a way to meet some like-minded individuals.

Building some Legion minis

This was a busy weekend. Michelle was sick with a cold and I had to get the TGN Reader’s Choice Award polls ready and posted. As such, I wasn’t in much of a mood to paint and instead I took some time to watch a few episodes form season 5 of Corner Gas and build some figs for my Legion of Everblight army. Specifically the Nephilim Protector, Nephilim Bolt Thrower, Raek and Hex Hunter unit.

I also have a unit of Grotesques that I need to assemble but I ran out of time.

Everything is built and sitting on the table waiting to get the bases sanded and then primed. Hopefully I’ll have that done before the 19th when we’ll be doing some Hordes and Warmachine gaming. I want to try the Thagrosh tier list again now that I actually have two Heavy Warbeasts :-)

Tyrgon assembly

A few days ago I took some time to finish assembling the Legion of Everblight Tyron Warbeast. The model is one of the character warbeasts for Hordes and it is probably one of the most difficult Hordes models to put together. The has quite a few arms and heads and these all need to go together in a specific order in order to not interfere with subsequent limbs.

After a few hours I managed to get it put into one piece but that isn’t the end of it sadly. The model has quite a few very prominent gaps that require greenstuff to close so I will need another evening of assembly to finish it off. Sadly I am pretty bad with greenstuff so the most difficult part of the job is still ahead of me.

Can’t wait to get it finished and primed so I can get it into a game with Thagrosh.

A painting I will go

There has been a flurry of painting and assembly here at the house recently. I picked up two boxed sets of Chaos Daemons. I assembled and primed ten Bloodletters and ten Daemonettes as well as Skulltaker. I started doing some work on creating a paint scheme for the Bloodletters. I also have to assemble and start painting a Dark SWord Miniatures Daemon that I will be using as a Daemon Prince for the army.

I’m also working on finishing the constructs for my Circle force. I started work on the Woldstalkers and will try to finish them with the rest of the constructs in the army. It seemed silly to not paint them all at the same time since they all have the same paint scheme and methods. Hopefully I will have some of them done soon.
