Saga Normans

Finally able to post pics of my 99% complete 6 points worth of Saga Normans (there is still a little touchup work I need to do here and there). Unfortunately, I didn't win Best Painted for these at Adepticon, but only because I won the Death Dealer award instead (most enemy Warlords slain). 

I tried limiting my color palette to autumnal colors - browns, greens, reds, yellows, & oranges - and, while I'm satisfied with the results, I think the plain red I chose was too vibrant in relation to the other colors. Shield designs are drawn on with Micron Pigma pens, then filled by painting, and thoroughly sealed (since the pen ink is semi-permanent).

Sorry for the poor quality of the pics. I believe I need to buy a new camera soon as my current one won't properly focus up close.

Road to Adepticon 2014: Saga Normans/Necromunda by Night

12 hours left until Adepticon and here's where I'm at with my Saga Normans. Major paintwork is done, and now its unto the groundwork, after which is clean-up painting. 

And here's what 12-13 tables of Necromunda terrain looks like all boxed up and ready to go...

Road to Adepticon 2014: Saga Normans

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few weeks. Here's some proff of life - I'm slowly and painfully slogging though 6 full points of Saga Normans. I had a huge amount of trouble assembling and cleaning the Perry Bros. Knights I bought, so I'm trying to rush through painting the entire army as quickly as possible.

Wish me luck!

Lionel Watchman Shanty

Just a quick post for today, this is an old Lionel Watchman Shanty for a railyard. It's actually a surprisingly good model for being so cheap (they regularly sell online for $10), went together really quickly and looks pretty nice even without a lot of painting. The only problem is the walls are very thin and have a tendency to warp slightly and there isn't any interior floor for the upper floor (I solved that by gluing in some plasitcard sheet).

Road to Adepticon 2014: Borderlands-inspired terrain finished!

Finally got around to painting up the Borderlands-style terrain I finished building last month. I feel like these pieces still need a little something ("...a local shop, for local people!") but, for now, they're ready for the Necromunda tournament next month. Enjoy!
