Signs and portents. The super blood moon rises. . . . along with the essex Legion!

Lano and Neil have been busy gathering a horde of gamers to create the 'Essex Legion'.

I managed to attend after the kids were ready to bed and walked into a hall that was absolutely heaving with gamers armed to the teeth with 28mm armies!

I was lucky enough to get a game in and had a really good 25 point game. Not many photos as I was busy taking it all in and talking to new peeps.

My opponent is good enough to hide his one unpainted miniature behind the tower.

Oh no. . . . There it is about to rip my Mages to pieces!

We all get a bit giggly and silly with the lazer pens as we work out the trample attacks!

Yep I am silly enough to leave a big enough opening to let the Ripper jack in!"

Thankfully my girl Ashlynn gets stuck in. . . . Right before getting her head ripped off by the 'Killer' Jack!
So once again a defeat but it was a solid game and I am embarrassed to admit I have forgotten the name of my opponent but it was nice to meet a fella as into his 'Warmaporn' as Lano and I.

Not sure I can make it as a weekly feature but it is definately somewhere I will visit every opportunity I get!

Also as a sign of life I have actually managed to get some paint on some figures.

I have also sorted out the mighty miniature 200!!!!

Warmachine Steelhead Halberdiers. Commission two finished.

Second of my commissions from Lano.

The paint monkey finished these last Sunday but I had already blogged a post so decided these could wait to Thursday as a sign of life.

Only wanted these painted to the most basic of table top standard as I find myself playing less and less Warmachine but they can make it in to ALL my Warmachine factions so they had to be finished.

They look great but I really need to take a look at the Skorne I have squirreled away in the lead mountain.

I got the Skorne for an absolute song and I think they look the business (easily the best looking of the Hordes faction IMHO!) and whats not to love about post nuclear apocolypse, elf, vampire, samurai!!

BUT . . . . . 

am I ever really going to use them?

Now the numbers. . . .

Miniatures painted / sold this year = 199
Miniatures bought this year =40

469 miniatures to go!

Need something special for miniature 200 of the year.

6am kit bash

Eyes pinged open at 6am this morning (I guess my brain thought it was Monday!).

Rather then lay there staring at the ceiling until the kids woke up I snuck into the office.

Within 20 minutes it looked like this. . . . . .

Titan Forge, Bloodsail Island Ogres. The first painting commission completed.

With the new job my painting output has ground to a halt.

The good news is with the extra readies in my pocket I have been able to pay out to have Lano paint up some figures for me.

Dr. Gostellos new exhibit. Brother Herq the strong man.

'Oceans filled with tears. Shed by the angels weeping. For souls fell in war'

Brother Herq had always been the sensitive type, fully embracing the majesty of the tea ceremony as much as the hours of practise with the power sword.

He knew the other initiates sniggered at him behind his back because of his love of composing Haiku poetry, but none dare insult him to his face because of his proficiency with the blade.

Of course the Star Warriors had come to the temple. Of course he had been selected. Of course he had hated every second of it!

Least of all me!

I was in a funny mood Sunday. I had done all my lesson planning for the week (sorry to gloat to any other teachers out there!).

With an hour of down time I was perusing my blog list and come across this on the 'Mordian 7th Regiment' blog. . . .

Dr. Gostellos Psycho Circus. First Jalopy completed.

Dr. Gostello could not help but give a smug little smile "Not so bloody 'Smart' now are you Billy!" he thought.

The night raid could not have gone better! Of course the new bullet holes will need some work with the polyfilla and the blood will need washing out the back, but now Billy will know to pay his gambling dept's when their due!
