Despite my being out of town for a almost a week, I had what I would call a successful hobby weekend! Well it was pretty much a successful Sunday…but still!
Let’s take a look-see at what hit the table this weekend!
Let’s start with the model that’s this post’s featured image, the Covergence of Cyriss Modulator heavy Vector (sidenote: holy moley this thing was easy to magnetize). In a recent post, I told you guys that my bro-in-law is getting into the game (and tabletop games in general) with CoC as his faction of choice. He’s already got a 25 point Syntherian theme force list that we’ve been prepping for paint and playability last week.
Yesterday, we started to paint.
He’s echoing the carbon fiber scheme a bit from NQ53. I think it’s a fairly subtle effect, but definitely looks good. I personally love the look of these Vectors over the other spider legged chassis. While he worked on this guy, I worked on:
A Pureblood Warpwolf! I figured with him getting into the game, it’d be a good time to work on that eKaya theme force I’ve had in boxes for like a year+ to go against his Convergence. Kinda like a mini-Journeyman League for me and him (which is nice because my last attempt bombed).
If you’ll remember I have painted a set of Shifting Stones + Stone Keeper already, as well as a Feral Warpwolf and Gorax. I’ve even attempted this guy before. I’ve debated whether I want to do this Circle army at all, but I think in the end it’s probably for the best that I take it on. The playstyle and models seem radically different from Menoth, so the break from them and this mini-Journeyan league I’ve conjured in my mind would probably do me some good. Plus it’s only 7 models (4 if I build it a different way) to 25 points.
Speaking of Menoth, I will soon be diving headfirst back into them becaaaaause…
I’ve found my new Menite paint scheme! I have talked at length about how to paint and subsequently repaint my Protectorate. This time I think I have really found the answer. This incorporates the golden army idea I’ve have from the beginning. My realistic, Dragon Age Templar inspired scheme would have been neat, but I feared they would ultimately suffer the same fate as my Dark Menoth (looking blah on the table after awhile).This new scheme has pop. Note: this is just a test model, so it’s not exactly clean. I was just testing out color placement.
More Relic Knights stuff! I’ve still yet to get a game in, but the Black Dragons are probably my favorite unit in Black Diamond. These I actually started on about a week or two ago. I started trying to bring out the definition on the one on the left. I really love this blue color.
Not bad for a day or so’s worth of work…
I’d love to hear your comments on any of these subjects!
And finally, what’s on your table?
