Someone call for a doctor?

Hi all. I had planned to post WiP updates throughout the HoA project, but illness intervened. Suffice to say the models were all finished in time, and I'm back on my feet, alive and well. Unfortunately, I had to drop the superheavy plans,  but I had no choice given the deadline constraints and time spent in the hospital instead of at the workbench. Alas...

Goatboy Lovin!

A shameless filler post while I get photos taken for my first HoA update. (Spoiler: first HoA unit involves gyro-stabilization...)

I had a blast at Adepticon this year! Life issues got in the way of painting, and I wasn't able to finish my orks in time to compete in any tournaments. I pseudo-willingly got roped into some Malifaux action, which lit a fire under me for some steam-gothic-cowboy-horror action. I'm four crew boxes in now, and ready to start some painting. I also spent a great deal of time with Bill and the gang of Gamer's Lounge fame. Great crew, and I definitely had a blast playing, painting, and generally dorking around with the guys. Go check out The Gamer's Lounge podcast, they put out a great show about all things tabletop. They cover everything from GW to Privateer, with a strong lean in recent episodes towards Malifaux.

Real Life Curveball...

No, I'm not dead. Real life has decided to throw me a ridiculous curve ball, and as such, hobby has taken a back seat to getting life sorted out. As a result, I've had to back out of combat patrol at Adepticon. I will still be going, but there was simply no way to get models painted in the weeks leading up to the event.

 So I plan to be back in the saddle roughly two weeks after Adepticon. By then I'll be in new living quarters, with ample time to devote to the hobby bench. The Fire Hawks, WAAAGH Teek, The Blindwater Congregation, and my burgeoning KoB fleet for Dystopian Wars should all start seeing new life and new paint.

Adepticon Grots, Before

I'm going to Adepticon this year.
I'm playing in Combat Patrol on Saturday.
I've finally decided on a list.

Thus I need to paint. Quite a bit.

Wrecked Drop Pod WIP

Quick post tonight, to show off the progress on the wrecked drop pod terrain. I've got base coats done and a horrendously sloppy wash done.

Weirdboy, Power of the Waaagh!

I love the Weirdboy. I know, he's not a tourney winner by a long shot. He's dangerous, unstable, and unpredictable. As such, he is 100% pure Ork. Along with the Shokk Attack Gun, he is one of the most characterful units in the codex.

Alas, the official model is crap.

So of course I had to make my own.
