Off The Rails

With Test of Honour Week over, I started up a project I’ve been waiting on for a while now.  In a bit of ironic coincidence, we took the weekend to go up to the Georgetown Loop and ride their old steam train.  I also just happened to pick up the Dropzone Commander Monorail scenery kit.  I usually don’t jump into a project as soon as I pick up the product but the forces seemed in alignment so I pushed forward.

Test Of Honour Week: Scatter Terrain And Friend Of Sword-Master

The week is winding down but I have a few final things that were completed just under the wire. The first is one of my first attempts at scatter terrain.  I don’t do a lot of this as I usually buy a scenery piece and paint it up.  This time I wanted to have some bamboo-based terrain and that isn’t easy to outright buy so I had to make my own.

Test Of Honour Week: Bell Of The Ball

I received my new replacement bell for my Test of Honour Temple Bell scenery piece and so I quickly set about fixing it up.

It came with a faux bronzing and while that may be just fine in a color setting, it won’t cut it in my monochrome theme.

Test Of Honour Week: Temple Bell

As I continue through the Test of Honour week, I turn my attention to terrain by building up Sarissa Precision’s Temple Bell.  I’ve always liked this model and have had it sitting in shrink for a while now but was glad to have the chance to open it up.

Test Of Honour Week: Sword-Master

After blitzing through my Ninjas last week for Test of Honour, I dug out the rest of my kits and decided to push through to see if I can wrap this game up. I made great progress this weekend, starting with the Sword-Master figure for my Dojo Assault set.

Ninja Progression: A Painting Process In Black & White

Having recovered from my fuzzy primer incident, I went back to my Test of Honour Ninja figures to finish them up.  I decided to take pictures of the progress as I went along, mainly to see how things were coming out and what was actually effective for my standard table-top quality style.  I started first with the ninja hero.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Wave 5 News And Thoughts

Lots of Walking Dead: All Out War news is coming in from Mantic now.  Their blog is dedicating the week to hype up the upcoming fifth Wave of the game and even though I was a little down based on the news I heard from Gen Con, the content for Wave 5 is still sounding strong.

Dipping Into The Animated Series

Batman The Animated Series was a staple cartoon that I watched as a kid and when I first got into Knight Model’s Batman Miniature Game, I was excited to see that they had some Animated Series figures.  Unfortunately, they only had a handful of minis and with the game being heavily skirmish-based, you couldn’t make much of a team out of their offerings.  The minis were great but they needed more of it.

Painting Boot Camp: A Simple Start

As I mentioned on Friday, we had an intro to painting session with a friend that has decided to join the hobby fold. He’s been on the sidelines, listening in, but now he’s ready to get into the game.  I decided to start from scratch so we first put together a mini from the North Star Frostgrave Soldiers set and then dove in with the two models I assembled/primed earlier.
