Game Pics 26 Aug 2023

Some pics from a game I played against Space Wolves yesterday. Another loss as I lost a turn due to bad placement and boxing myself in. I need to switch up my list, my tactics, and have a plan.   Wrapping up deployment.     Space Wolves advance unimpeded.     I thought I had a clever plan to ambush the advancing squad with the most powerful psyker available in the army. I then whiffed 7 of 9 casting rolls essentially sacrificing this dude for no gain.

Drukhari WIP

Switching to the vehicles of the three combat patrols I have.    I’ll need to compress these images but I wanted to put something in my moribund blog.    There's a lot of work here. TBH, I'm not feeling this work, but I aim to finish this one venom / 'weaver if nothing else.

Game Pics 02 July 23

Was part of a 3 vs 3 game yesterday. I fought mostly against Orks and Space Wolves. While the score has my team down 1, I'd say I still won with meeting new people and having a close game.   Here's the list     And the game pics.                   Thanks for looking.

Drukhari Archon

All done except for the sealing coat.    This guy is a test model. It uses the same colors as the witches, but it differs from the corsairs and existing kabalites. The latter is teal, not turquoise.    Obviously I've been going for quantity over quality lately. I'm shooting for these models to look good from several feet, not a few inches away.   Here's the pics.           Thanks for looking.

Warlock Conclave WIP

Some pics of some warlock skyrunners I started on Wednesday. I seem to be working back to front.   These are rescues so didn't do the build.   Colors used: turbo dork shifting sounds GW eshin gray blended with GW mechanical gray Vallejo gloomy violet wet blended with Vallejo light gray         Comments and criticism welcome. Thanks for looking.

Pirate Army - Incubi

These models count as Tortured Warriors with venom swords in my Grimdark death cult army. In 40k lore this is part of an Ynnari army with an emphasis on pirates and banshees. It has a craft world, a wych cult, and a few kabalite bands joining in for kicks.   There's some details to paint in the torture racks, but that will not prevent me from calling these tabletop-ready.   Colors used:   Vallejo dark turquoise ink gw carrosburg crimson turbo dork shi

Pirate Army - Wyches

These models count as Witches in my Grimdark death cult army. In 40k lore this is part of an Ynnari army with an emphasis on pirates and banshees. It has a craft world, a wych cult, and a few kabalite bands joining in for kicks.   I'm generally pleased with the results here. Colors used are:   turbo dork shifting sands GW auric gold GW terrain turquoise GW hexametric green GW carroburg crimson Vallejo flat yellow army painter matte b

Pirate Army - Corsairs

These models count as Nightmares in my Grimdark death cult army. Alternatively, I can run them as storm squads in High Elf Fleets. In 40k lore this is an Ynnari army with an emphasis on pirates and banshees. It has a craft world, a wych cult, and a few kabalite bands joining in for kicks.   I finished these models (for now) today. I might go back and add more color to the weapons. Not thrilled with the arkhelion green results. These look like the Denver Broncos.  However, they are read

New Photos, Old Models

Playing around with ideas to improve pics of models.    Speaking of, I have painted models not posted yet and I'll get around to that. Not sure how replacing backgrounds on infantry will work, but at least there will be pics of dark reapers, more corsairs, and banshees incoming on my moribund blog.

Cosmic Chorus Army Showcase

Cross posting some pictures from the Hall of Honor > Army Showcase thread. I didn't take a ton of close ups, those can be found elsewhere on the B&C.   Comments and criticism welcome.   Characters   Shadowseer   Solitaire   Troops     Fast Attack       Heavy Support   Dedicated Transports           Tra

Showcase: Terrain, Scenery, and Fortifications

Pics of some of the terrain my group plays on. Our terrain gets recycled and repainted quite frequently but we never put unpainted work on the table.   Forgeworld's mystic terrain foresaw the future because contrast paint was made for these models.          And a Drukhari shrine       Moving to the urban setting where we play most of our games, here's some pregame shots.         Som

More Aeldari Corsair WIPs

Haven't been overly motivated to do minis lately, but the sun was out so I took some quick WIP pics of some Aeldari pirates. This is in addition to the previous entry's models. These came pretty quick and I think I have the process down going forward. Obviously more to clean up here, but those mold lines are so obvious now.  Next time.    I need to clean up and finish detailing some items, especially those faceless helms. Some items will get gloss coated.

20 Years at the B&C

The techpriests have provided me with a 20 year commemoration today. I realize that @Brother Tyler mentioned they could go out early, but I’ll still bask in the glow of middle age, plastic, and paint.

Tau Game Pics

Collected some pics of my second Tau army during a pair of games. I threw in two Farsight models I actually completed before I went back to my Eldar.   Edit: My Tau gallery here at @B&C.

Working on Corsairs

Doing some loose aeldari pirate/corsair thing. I'm expecting it to be a mix of stuff played as Ynnari if I ever go back to playing 40k. So no hurry.    These have been cleaned up a little, but I want this to be fairly quick to do when I get the urge.         The blue is Ahkelion Blue, dry brushed with Game Color Teal then Ulthuan Gray.   BTW, I hate assembling models more than ever.

Hrud

Came across this game photo from 2019. I was playing my Tau in a short campaign against my friend's Hrud. If you like this photo, leave a comment and I'll see if I can find some more. Sadly the army was sold in 2020.   .

Kickoff

I started 40k in 1989 and have done a lot of work and played a lot of games. Since I've not actively been playing 40k for most of the past year, I haven't done much hobby wise.    I'll post stuff I'm working on and gradually consolidate stuff from older threads here.
