40K: Medusa Completed

It totally figures that I finished my Medusa kit-bash over the weekend and then see the Release Rumor on BOLS about Medusas.

Anyway, here are a few pics. The siege gun is a Earthshaker chopped up and mounted backwards. For the muzzle I used a highliter cap. The earlier version was maybe a tad cooler but I couldn’t get it to fit into a gunsheild so that was that.

The weapon platform slides into the bay, just like the Earthshaker platform does. I’ll get some detail on the bits I used at some point if anybody cares, otherwise, here she is.

Random Pic: Pete's painted Malifaux

My buddy Pete's Malifaux warband for our learning game a few months back. Pete LOVES games with poker-style decks (i.e. Warlord.) He owns all the factions and has all of them painted. He's the fastest high-quality painter I know. More Peteifaux soon.

Hope for the Future: Pete

I was just informed via text by my buddy Pete that he got me a copy of Space Marine for Xbox 360. And you believed thoughtful giving and complete generosity was dead, huh? Well you are wrong, so screw you, he's my friend and you can't have him.

Thank you, Pete.

40K: Tyranid Objective Marker and Lightning Fighter Rebase

Here is the complete 'Nid objective marker that I started below. I added a textured rim, snow and some polyurethane on the Niddy parts. Had I thought about it more, I maybe would have made the 'Nid Whatever That Is poking through a crack in the rocks, instead of a pool. At least it stands out.

Also, I redid the base for my finished Forge World Lightning fighter.

WIP: Tyranid Objective Marker

I went as cheap as possible on this objective marker, one little Nid bit in the middle of a GW base and then a bunch of freehand to fill up the flat space. I may skim coat a clear epoxy layer on top of the 'Nid organism after the earthen rim is done, we’ll see.

40K: Hellhound Deaths through the Years

After a recent game against my buddy John and his Nids I took a moment to reflect on the fact that the Hellhound (or cousins) explode real good almost every game.

So to the point, here is my Hellhound exploding 4 years ago to some Genestealers:

And here is my Hellhound blowing up again, last Tuesday night, to some Genestealers.

They blow up grow up so fast.

Random Pic: Memoir '44/Sword Beach

Hard to see in the pic, but I bought a large piece of plexi-glass for Memoir '44. This allows the board and tiles to be set up, then the plexi-glass put on top, protecting the tiles from being knocked out of position as units move around the board... critical during long Breakthrough missions and the customary switching of sides/resetting the field after the first game. I got a 30"x36" piece of plexi-glass for $20, which covers both the 28"x34" Breakthrough maps as well as the standard 28"x20" standard maps.

Random Pic: Spectre 6

For a more in depth but still brief description of my game against Jason Woolf's Deathwing termi army (damn it) please see his blog:
