  1. Work in progress on the first Razor and Spector for my Templar 99th Auxiliary CAV force.
  2. I'd like to join the queue to play, if I may. And loving the story so far!

  5. Karine crept along the deserted wooden boardwalk, the reassuring warmth of the magical sword Modblad in her right hand. Of course, in her left hand throbbed the unholy pulse of the Netherstone, and she was glad for the thick glove that kept its glowing runes from touching her skin. Something had caused the human village of Destead to be abandoned and if she was right, the Netherstone would give her advanced warning. She edged along the front of an inn, small clumps of grass sticking through the wood beneath her feet, the inn doors open and brightly lit from within, but devoid of people. A trio of tables in front were still set with hearty meals... The Netherstone's pulsing quickened, and Karine's heart followed suit. From the shadows on the other side of the street, eldritch eyes glinted, and a glowing mouth filled with the shadows of teeth yawned into a smile beneath them.

    Shadows of Eldolan

    I'm thinking of going with a Fighter or Paladin bodyguard concept. At the moment, though the Sampson Flat bushfire in South Australia is drawing my attention, as it's been within 500m of my childhood home for the last 24-hours and is still out of control. I'll put something together when my head's clearer.

    Shadows of Eldolan

    Sure, if enough people want to play. Are you familiar with the system? I'm not, but I'll give the SRD a good read through. Familiar with DnD 3e/3.5/Pathfinder/4e, though, so I'm not anticipating any major problems, just details. Should I post my character on here, or PM to you, or wait, or...?

    2015 Year of the ??

    Maybe with the Bones range emphasising ease of converting, there should be a conversion focus. Perhaps, to go with an earlier idea from Maledrakh, anything with tentacles, but it doesn't to have started out with tentacles. Like Cthulhu? Sure, he's got tentacles, so he's straight in. How about Irabeth Tirablade? Sure, but only after she's changed her name to Irabeth Tentablade with the inclusion of some parts from the creature components sprue. Wanna do something more sci-fi? How about a CAV converted with tentacles bursting out of it? That sort of thing.
  10. I'd be keen. I'll even volunteer to throw together some badges (not badgers) with Photoshop and Illustrator as awards.

    Look at that disapproving windshield. It so is a thing. :P

    Thanks, Vil!
  13. You made a new years resolution to not start anything new until you finish your current miniatures? I'm glad I've not held to that. I'm still waiting on a home 3D printed door for a GW Land Raider to be delivered from a friend, when the Land Raider in question was a birthday gift in 2004 - before home 3D printers were invented. I've got my models out and ready to go! Let's do this!

    I'm keen to give this a shot, if you're still up for running it.

    Bones Tiamat CAV in Brown Camo

    My first painted CAV (though not my first miniature by a long shot). This was largely experimenting with a few techniques: there's a base coat of light brown, with a sponged pattern of dark brown over the top, and a toothbrush-flicked spatter of stone grey. The wash I applied somewhat muted the effect of the grey; hopefully, that won't be replicated in the Cougar I'm painting in the same pattern. The wash is going on before the grey on that one.

    Bones Halberd CAV in Red, Black and White

    The colours for the Templar 99th Auxiliary Regiment I'm devising. The transfers on the shoulders haven't worked out as well as I'd hoped, possibly from being pretty old, so I'll probably skip them on any future models.

    CAV: SO Friday Feature [11/7/2014]

    Just wanted to say thanks for the fonts. I've been working on a custom nose art decal for an Assassin: Li'l Orphan Luga. Hey, some things transcend cultural barriers.

    Regimental Muster

    I'm working on the 99th Auxiliary Regiment for the Templars. Somewhat like the French Foreign Legion, the 99th Auxiliary is a regiment for those who wish to serve the interests of the Templar, but who aren't Squires or Knights and are therefore excluded from the regular military. The regiment is also open to Knights who have disgraced themselves and who wish to serve a penance - factionalism between the penitent Templars and non-Templars remains a morale problem haunting the unit. Differing from standard Templar colours, the 99th Auxiliary wears black, with two bands of red (the side torsos and legs in the case of CAVs). White stripes appear down the red portions.

    Early Birds: 1st test schemes

    Very nice! The patterns on the Tiamat and Halberd are particularly fetching.

    Bones Tiamat CAV in Brown Camo

    The numbers are water slide transfers from a Games Workshop Imperial Guard tank kit, approximately a decade old.

    Bones Tiamat CAV in Brown Camo

    Almost finished work on the Cougar to go with the Tiamat. Something needs to guide those beautiful rockets home. Again, needs some basing. Used Reaper's MSP Flesh Wash on this one rather than the Games Workshop Flesh wash; it's not as yellow, and didn't stain the grey as much.

    Bones Tiamat CAV in Brown Camo

    I've got some "meadow grass" flock that I'm planning to put down on the base, but I'm out of PVA glue at the moment and the shops are all closed for the holidays.
