Changed the Blog Theme

I was annoyed with the old theme cutting some of the captions on the right, so  I for a new one today. By that the blog looks quite different by now. Hope it’s a little better laid out.

Polling Booth is Closed – Let’s Get Started

Here are the final results of the poll for which models to paint in the Solo Painting Week. Saxon Orrik and Alten Ashley share the first while the Widowmaker Marksman and Kovnik Joe share the second place. So there is still a tie which Khador model to paint. I decided to let my 2.5 years old daughter choose the third model and she picked the Marksman (good choice, already base-coated, less to do).

So during this week  I will paint:

  • Alten Ashley
  • Saxon Orrik
  • Widowmaker Marksman

The full metal Black Ivan is almost finished so I can start this or the next evening. Don’t expect pictures of the ‘jack before Friday as I need some daylight after work to make nice pictures of it. I will post evening progress update pictures of the solos during the week.

Battle Report: eFeora vs Witch Coven

For some variety I played a game with my wife’s few Protectorate models this week against a friend’s Cryx. My list was:

  • eFeora, Vanquisher, Revenger, Repenter, Devout, Daughters of the Flame, min Temple Flameguard with UA, full Choir, Vassal, Rhupert

I had some concerns about dealing with heavy armoured targets like the Deathjack, not knowing what my opponent would field. The list he brought was:

  • Witch Coven, Deathripper, Nightwretch, Scavenger, Stalker, full Blood Witches + UA, full Soulhunters, Darragh, Scrap Thralls, Warwitch Siren

That’s a tier 2 list so the Soulhunters started with one token. I was quiet relieved that this list lacked the heavy targets. Here are some impressions of the game with comments on what was happening:

This picture shows the beginning of round 2 with the Protectorate starting. I already took out one Soulhunter on the hill with a shot of the Vanquisher. My Daughters of the Flame were trying to sneak around the left flank which is just outside the bottom of this picture. This plan is threatened by two Scrap Thralls, one can be seen in the ruins.

[Poll] A tie – Now with a group shot to visualize the options

At the time writing this, there is a tie in the poll for my next project, the Solo Week. Four of the six options have the same number of votes. I really would appreciate having some more votes to decide which three of the models to paint next week. To help choosing I made a group shot of the six models to vote for.

 

From left to tight: Orrik, Targ, Kovnik Joe, Marksman,Vassal, Alten

Poll for next project – Solo painting week

I plan to finish my full-metal Black Ivan this week and would like to paint some small stuff next. Looking at my collection, there are some small-based solos still waiting for paint. I will try to paint three during the next week but am not sure which ones to choose. So here is a poll for you, dear readers, to choose which to paint within the solo painting week (choose up to three out of these 6).

Harkevich Tier4 – The Outcome

I played the Harkevich Tier4 list as described here two days ago. The 2 points filler were two Winterguad Rocketeers. Match up was a 3 player free for all with a hold center scenario. My friends played the Witch coven with some Bonejacks, full Sartyx Witches,full  Soulhunters with Darragh and some solos, as well as Damiano with his Steelhead crew. The game was a lot of fun with Damiano going down to one box and Harkevich to four before the game ended.

The two Rocketeers weren’t that succesful and I think next time I would rather  take a Widowmaker Marksman instead.
