First Warmachine/Hordes game

Got a chance to get a little tutorial last night of Warmahordes and I have to say I really enjoyed it.  Many thanks to our teacher who was very patient.  I think I got a slight grasp of the system last night and it was very interesting.  Much more involved than GW's ruleset in some ways and  the rules seem very clear.  I am very impressed by the rapid development of Army books and updates but I have heard they are having some problems keeping up with demand.

So the big new is that I broke down and started bidding this morning on a Circle lot on Ebay.  I have decided to go for the druids just to do something completely different.  If I really get into it than Cryx will be my Warmachine army but I want to kick off with the Druids.  Even if I dont win this auction I am going to grab some minis soon.

This means my new goal with the Vcounts army is to finish building them and get them play ready and I think I will bust into painting as soon as I can on the Orbos stuff.

Ghoul dipping

Dipped the first batch with my oil based neon green mixed with Army Painter combo.

It got a little globby but overall its ok.  I am a little worried that they arent going to look that great but we shall see.  I still need to hit them with the dullcote and touch up but they are almost there.

 I am not too concerned on these since I think if I really get into Vcounts I will be replacing the ghouls with GWs eventually.

Progress on the Ghouls

Not the most fun but it is moving forward.

I just got this first batch of 20 ready for a massive dipping session today. There is a couple of experiments going on here and I am having a lot of faith in the Army Painter goodness right now.

I just really want to power through these Ghouls because I think generally they look pretty booty.

Vcounts painting started

I will try and post some pics soon.

I have finally started the process with the vcounts and started in on my least favorite of the Mantic minis I got: The Ghouls.

I hope they look ok, I am going to try something a little different with the dipping by adding in some oil based bright green paint to the army painter stuff.  Hopefully it makes them stand out since they dont look too different than the Zombies.

The rest of the Mantic stuff is pretty cool its just these that sort of blow.

Grey Knights INC

Looks like dates are starting to fly around the internet.

If some money issues get taken care of in the next couple weeks I am going to be seriously tempted to throw down for these.

No official link yet but I saw this blog this morning:  LINK  nice catch

Dipping experiment semi-successful: Bikers done

I have to say I am pretty happy with how these turned out.  After I hit them with a dullcote the dipping turned out pretty good.  Not my best of the best but these turned out pretty nice.  I have a little bit of cleaning up to do on them but I am pretty happy.  Hopefully these and the LR will allow me to get a better paint score in the upcoming Kublacon.
