Just received an email from Jemma at Battlefoam (UK), letting us know they will be donating two of the C4 P.A.C.K. cases with 1.5″ troop trays (plus Foam Topper Load Out).

A big thank you to everyone at Battlefoam, this is a fantastic contribution to the event; which I am sure will be hotly contested given the quality of these products.  Why not check out the website, as they do specialist trays for all ranges of system; including Malifaux, Spartan Games and Flames of War.

Abracadabra…..Hey Presto!

Despite not feeling the urge to paint this month, I did have fun painting the first of the Impact Miniatures! Chibi Dungeon Adventurers models.  Naturally, I had to start with the one that my wife loved most – the ‘Wizard’.  Any similarity, to a character from an 80′s cartoon; is purely coincidental.

Find a way home……

Last month I mentioned a delivery, which I had been expecting for a while. Thankfully it arrived a few days before I headed to the Nationals, so it gave me time to clean them up in the hotel.

Gamers of a certain age, will recognise the similarities with a children’s cartoon from the 1980′s.  So to get the chance to pledge to a Kickstarter with models that looked similar to those characters; was just a must have.

The wizard model at the back will be my Painting Oath pledge for July, though I will hopefully be painting them all this month.  I would like to add a special thank you to the guys at Impact Miniatures, who were very helpful and efficient; when a problem arose with the delivery.  Now I’m off you watch the boxset of said cartoon, which my loving wife bought me several years ago (she says I look like Presto).

 

Making an Impact

With luck next week will bring with it, not only the UK Nationals; but also something in the post.  I’ve been looking forward to this arriving for a long while now, as it takes me back to my childhood.

As it will hopefully arrive in time for July, I’ll be using them as my Painting Oath for that month.  So watch this space from what delights I will be painting soon, for now I’m going to go get the boxset to listen to as I paint.

 

1 Week

Just a week to go, before I am heading down to the UK Nationals.  It’s a sell out event with all 128 places taken, Iron Gauntlet close to filling out and lots of cool prizes up for grabs (they tease us and won’t tell us what).

I’m still busy painting models, with a couple of new ones (Malice and Machine Wraith) still to be painted.  The Kraken is waiting on water effect for the base; which will hopefully get done on Wednesday.  Just finished today, is the second Seether:

As well as the last 4 Mechanithralls for the full unit:

Another tournament in Glasgow this Sunday, so it’s all go for the final push to next weekend.  I’ve not painted this much in a very long time, but the pressure to have a fully painted army; is making me push myself….which has been a good thing for me as I’ll explain later.
