[Jr 2014] Model Prep (Cont’d)

By Plarzoid

workspace

I vastly underestimated the number of parts and work involved in cleaning up the Extremoth. I’ve also been sidetracked with World of Warcraft, so not all blame is to be put onto the model. In fact, the model’s not to blame at all, it’s WoW.

That said, progress has still been made, just not nearly enough of it.

The Greylords are assembled, for the most part. Riders are assembled, horses are gap-filled and cleaned up, but are awaiting paint testing to make sure the gap fill is smooth. My focus right now is finishing the Extremoth build, …read more

[Journeyman 2014] Privateer Press really nailed Skorne…

Because everything about Skorne is torture! Putting them together and painting them especially! So that’s why I haven’t had near the amount of progress posts I had last year with my Rhyas list, despite this Makeda3 list having less models overall in it. Week 1 of the Journeyman 2014 season …read more

The Beginning – Journeyman 2014

By uvahowes

Journeyman Images - Copy

Today is the start of my local meta’s 2014 Journeyman league. This is my first proper attempt at a Journeyman league, having only started playing in earnest last July. This blog will (hopefully) track my successes and failures as the league progresses.

League Structure

The league is a 6-week league that will be played at the 50 point level for all 6 weeks. The goal is to get one 50 point list completely constructed and painted. The requirement for the players is that their list be at least half unpainted (27 points of models) before the league starts. Each week we can …read more

[Journeyman 2014] Another Skorne WIP, this time a Bronzeback Titan

By VoltRon

I tend to do a unit model and a warjack/beast concurrently when starting a new army. Getting those two models done really drives the rest of the progress. So with the Praetorian featured earlier this week and the other warbeasts in my list being more “troublesome” for lack of a better word, that just leaves […] …read more

[Journeyman 2014] Praetorian Swordsman test model, need some C & C!

By VoltRon The first of my Skorne models is here. Behold the first of twelve of these bros. What do you guys thing? The Skorne armor takes a long time to do, and I still don’t think it’s 100% to my liking. Plus I feel like all the smooth blends and gradients I worked to get on […] …read more

[Journeyman 2014] In which I learn that painting Skorne is also torture.

By VoltRon

The time of this year’s Journeyman is almost here! Countdown one week from today! Since we can have up to half of our list painted (about 27 points) before the start of the league, I figured it was time to get started on my death elves. I was originally going to go with the Malachrite […] …read more
