    A song of Ice and Fire - July

    Got my shipping notification last night. Expected delivery Friday. Of course I head to the track tomorrow and won't be back until Monday......but I'm sure the cats will enjoy sleeping on the box until I get back.

    Jasper Paint GW?? AoS Kharadron Overlords

    A cooler day, finally. Cloth is MSP Gothic Crimson. Base colour for the steel bits is S75 Black Metal. Steampunk reactor-y bit is S75 Emerald Alchemy over some MSP Solid White. The problem now is that the Clockwork Brass is looking a bit rough next to the S75 Black Metal. It may be getting too....something..... May look at my P3 metallics and see if I want to switch.

    Jasper Paint GW?? AoS Kharadron Overlords

    Still too freaking hot around here. Had a lovely cool day on the weekend that would have been perfect for painting (or sleeping) but it was also a perfect day for motorcycle racing some I spent the day doing race control. Managed to get started this morning anyway, although didn't get too far. I'm trying to figure out the paint scheme for the entire army so taking it slow. I expect it will be somewhat similar to the GW scheme on the box, lots of metallics and nice dark purples, since that looks pretty good. But I don't use much for GW paint so I'll just be feeling out what looks good. Once I get the first guy sorted it should get easier and quicker. Initial base coat of MSP Clockwork Brass (sure hope I have enough left....don't know what I'll do if I ever run out of it. Lovely colour). Then a wash of AP Flesh Wash. Then I started sweating. Freaking heat. Next house is having AC.

    Can anyone think of a use for these?

    Wow, there are some excellent ideas there! Guess I'll keep hoarding them
  5. So I basically have an endless supply of these.... and I really don't want to throw them in the recycling unless I'm sure I don't need them for something cool that I just haven't though of yet. But as I've got about 400 of these laying around so far (they are the inner needle tip protector for the tips I use for my daily shot, so are sterile and only the outer protector is put back on before going in the sharps bin) and growing, so as I still haven't really thought of anything, what do you think?

    The before picture looks about normal to me....I'm curious to see what the after will look like!

    And the Grundstok Thunderers are as assembled as possible for now. All ready for a quick wash and then priming. Might get the washing done tomorrow before mowing....

    Got the gunnery sergeant together-ish. Yes, he seems to have a clockwork parrot for his shoulder... This fig had quite the number of options. He could be built as another thunderer instead of a sergeant, likely a good thing if you are building bigger units (assuming that's a thing in the game). Once you decide on the sergeant build, he has two different left legs (I went with the mechanical one) and a couple of different heads. And you could leave the parrot off (by why would you!). I've got the other two figs from this unit all clipped out and will hopefully get them together by the end of the day.

    Got caught up with the second thunderer. His gun was in 3 pieces, for no particular reason. In case anyone is wondering, for each fig I pick what I think is the "coolest" weapon, with no regard for the rules, which I haven't read. So first guy got the 5 barrel gun, obviously. Second guy had the option of an aether cannon, or something like that, which might be a wicked weapon (or not) but it was kind of boring to look at, so I went with their stock gun instead. Backpacks might make a few bits hard to reach but stuck them on anyway. Arms and guns will have to be painted separate. Colour scheme......guess I'll have to decide sometime soon..... Unlikely to follow the box (at least too closely), I tend to prefer to wing it. But I'll take a good look at the box before I get started. Likely done for today, time to get started on supper

    Starting on random first guy. 7 parts seems excessive. Will move on to the plastic cement once the superglue for the pins is set.

    You should see the two bigger ones! Pricy but impressive....
  13. I've never been much of a fan of GW. I mean the first fig I ever painted was GW, but that's because my friend (who was also the store owner) gave it to me for free (Come on, try it, the first one's free....). And I played some Bloodbowl back in the day (should really finish my Chaos Dwarf team one of these days...only been a decade or two). But I never really got into anything GW was making. Style wasn't what I was looking for, or the price point, or whatever. So then last week I was in Montreal for the GP (great time, too bad the race itself was soooooo boring). Was visiting a friend who lives up there and we wandered into the rather impressive GW store in the Eaton Centre. Took a look around and caught sight of this: Apparently a new edition of Age of Sigmar is coming out this week, and these guys are a faction. Or whatever the different groups are called. I thought, "Those are pretty cool! Flying stuff. Steampunky. I like." Then we left. And I went and marshaled for 3 days (the support races were better, btw). Then we met back up on Monday. And I was still thinking about the cool steampunky flying ships. So we went back and I picked up the starter. (they have 2 bigger flying ships too, but ouch, not cheap). So, this is what they look like when you open the box: Oye! Lots of bits. Looks like everything has options (they have a very detailed assembly guide, quite impressive). Options that presumably follow rules. Rules I'm not sure I'll ever read, let alone play. But I may check with the local store; I think they had some folks playing something GW. So that's all I've done with them so far, but figured I'd post and get the WIP started. These may take a bit to get going.

    Package away! Will likely take a week or so, depending on Customs.
  15. I have some spare excuses I won't be needing today, if you want to borrow some.
