NEWS – What’s in store for 2016…

2015 was a pretty good year for for me regarding tabletop gaming. I still have a big backlog of pics to take of finished miniatures, but I’ve been enjoying being a slacker too much. So what’s in store for me and this blog in 2016? Well I will tell you!

  • I have retired my Khador this year & will be focusing on Minions & Trollbloods
  • Some friends & I are doing a 10 points a month painting challenge for Warmachine & Hordes. People who do not accomplish it will have to pay $10 into a pot we will use for quarterly events for all those participating
  • Paint & play more Guild Ball
  • Finish more Infinity models so I have a couple 300 point list options

INFINITY Yu Jing Remote Yaoxie Lu Duan…

My last Yaoxie remote and I’m all done now. This baby also has a nice heavy flamethrower which is nice for ARO purposes if you’re worried about hitting hard targets. This is the remote I use the most since he has a diverse set of weapons paired with the Mk12 which is a weaker HMG.

yu_jing_remote_yaoxie_lu_duanFlame on!

  1. Touch Tone Flat Grey Primer (Cheap automotive primer!)
  2. Base coat colors using Vallejo Game Colors
  3. Army Painter Dark Tone Ink all over the miniature
  4. Highlight lens with a glow effect
  5. Bases are comprised of Basecrafts Autumn Scatter & Basecrafts Mixed Leaves
  6. I then varnish with Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch Gloss Coat (Non-Yellowing & UV Resistant) & then use Testors Dullcote to subdue the shine

WARMACHINE Mercenaries Exulon Thexus…

The moment I saw this model I fell in love with it. It’s so different from the usual aesthetics that I knew I wanted to paint it the moment I saw him. I wanted to also make him more game friendly so I decided to bend and and place his extra “Doc Ock” arms in such a way so I could still place models next to him. He was great to paint up and enjoyed figuring out how to break up the metallics to keep it interesting between the silver and brass.

mercenaries_cephalyx_exulon_thexusNo I don’t have REACH!

  1. Touch Tone Automotive Flat Grey Primer
  2. Base coat colors using Vallejo Game Colors & Vallejo Model Air Metallics
  3. Army Painter Dark Tone Ink all over
  4. Painted eyes & rivets
  5. Bases are comprised of Basecrafts Forest Scatter & Basecrafts Mixed Leaves
  6. I then varnished with Rust-Oleum Clear Gloss and then Testor’s Dullcote

INFINITY Yu Jing Tokusetsu…

This model is great since he is diverse and can be used in a Engineer or Doctor role. I always use him and tend to lean towards the Engineer version since I run so many Remotes. He was pretty fun to paint and was done in a short session. Which I love being a lazy painter who has a tendency to finish models in one sitting.

yu_jing_tokusetsuI fix robots or people!

  1. Touch Tone Flat Grey Primer (Cheap automotive primer!)
  2. Base coat colors using Vallejo Game Colors
  3. Army Painter Dark Tone Ink all over the miniature
  4. Highlight using the same basecoat color
  5. Bases are comprised of Basecrafts Autumn Scatter & Basecrafts Mixed Leaves
  6. I then varnish with Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch Gloss Coat (Non-Yellowing & UV Resistant) & then use Testors Dullcote to subdue the shine

INFINITY Yu Jing Remote Yaoxie Rui Shi…

For my other set of remotes from the Yaoxie types I decided to try a thinned down wash to give it a clean look. They came out pretty good for no touch ups and opted to keep a minimal palette only using four colors. With proper color separation, minimal palettes will tend to look better and more uniformed. Less is more.

WARMACHINE Mercenaries Cephalyx Subduer Monstrosity…

My last monstrosity for now is finally done! I always thought this guy was undervalued by most players since he actually has a super long threat range for what seems like a very short ranged weapon. Of course his synergy reaches maximum potential with Exeulon Thexus due to his FEAT and Telekinesis.

mercenaries_cephalyx_monstrosity_subduerGotta net them all!

  1. Touch Tone Automotive Flat Grey Primer
  2. Base coat colors using Vallejo Game Colors & Vallejo Model Air Metallics
  3. Army Painter Soft Tone Ink over flesh & Dark Tone Ink over metal
  4. Repainted flesh using glazes & diluted purple ink/wash over veins
  5. Bases are comprised of Basecrafts Forest Scatter & Basecrafts Mixed Leaves
  6. I then varnished only with Testors Dullcote since it’s a plastic model
