Wyrd Games have released a preview of yet another Emissary. This one will be added to my Molly and Seamus crews. May even throw in something to tie in with Yan Lo.

With the recent newsletter from West Wind Productions announcing the resculpted Incursion models available on their webstore it will only be a matter of time before they have the full line up available. My Mechanised drop force will soon be complete and led by Hilde, the Valkyrie.

Hilde Becker has the dubious honour of being the Reich’s best troubleshooter. What that ultimately means is that High Command tends to drop Hilde and whatever Drop Trooper assets they can muster into the worst locations that the Allies can construct. Her continued survival is a testament to her abilities. She’s also occasionally used to bring certain rogue elements back in line…

So this year with my reduced hobby time I will be concentrating on a few select projects. Malifaux will be a major focus but I also want to give some love and encouragement to lesser rulesets. This also allows me to give some love and attention to the models in my collection that have yet to feel the caress of a brush.

  1. Complete the 2 Epic forces I started last year. I was close to completing my Eldar last year. When I say close I was almost at 3,000 points. This does not give a lot of wiggle room for tailoring my force so I will be adding to my force to get it to around 4,000 points. I will also attempt to get my Heresy Emperor’s Children up to the same level. I love the Heresy models and will be continuing painting purple this year. I will also be adding some titan support to both my loyalists and traitorous forces. This will also feed into playing lesser-played systems, below.
  2. Paint 1,000 points of ‘Of Gods and Mortals’. Published by Osprey Games this is a nice simple system with lots of room for customisation of forces, creating your own pantheon of gods and take part in epic battles. For me I will be doing a dark celtic force using some old Rackham models from their Drune range. My force consists of 4 units, 2 characters and Cernunnos the Horn’d God. This force can also be segued into a force for Dragon Rampant, another Osprey Games system.
  3. Organise and take part in various ‘Man Days’. With limited gaming time we have decided to have 1 day a month devoted to gaming with the guys. This is organised chaos where any system and games are welcome, turn up and play. Grab an opponent, organise before or on the day, or rope in anyone who wanders by to play a game. Our first Man Day will be 31st January and if successful will continue every month.
  4. Play more. Simple. Whether it’s in tournaments or just a relaxing board game with my wife I want to play more this year.

Another beautiful render from Wyrd Miniatures. Need this ASAP. My proxy will be fine until the official model is released.

The Emissaries are the embodiment of their faction and enhance and compliment every master in the faction.

First artwork from the infamous ‘Boondoggle Seven’ or whatever name they settle on for the new band in malifaux. Each member of the band belongs to each faction and 1 member is lead singer and can bring the others together to form a crew. The crew members are also Tormented meaning Jack Daw can be the front man for a spin-off group! Oh Yeah \m/

#Epic #Armageddon flyers on a budget

So with the reduced availability of eldar flyers I decided to try and make my own. Scouring the Bits sites for suitable components I stumbled across a flyer made using an epic eldar jetbike. Taking that as a sign I started last night and by the end I had made decent progress on 2 nightwings and 3 phoenix bombers.

The bonus is that they could possibly be used by both Eldar and the dark cousins, Dark Eldar. And after seeing Elsmore’s painting log I decided to steal/borrow the idea and paint mine the same way, as Prince Yriel’s Raiders.

I also managed to get some more work done on my Eldar revenant titan (a 40K wraithguard)

  • Original inspiration

  • First and ongoing attempt at Eldar Nightwings

  • Ongoing progress on Eldar Phoenixes
