…And Ghetorix makes a Four Wolf Moon.

WMW is nearly upon us and I have resigned myself to the mad paint dash.

Just look at him!
Look at this sexy mofo.

I spent nearly all Sunday working on Ghetorix start-to-finish and he came out amazing. Granted a lot of breaks were taken for wash drying and I worked on my Druids some.

Is Three Wolf Moon still a thing? Here’s my take on it…

Why the lack of Circle Orboros updates?  Blame my painting spree in preparation of WMW.  The armies I’m painting are just…all of the place.

Everything is somewhere between 25-50% done (minus the Skinwalkers and Ghetorix ugh) and I keep jumping around as to avoid any kind of burn out in this crucial homestretch.

But I did want to share some progress today…

Sigh…why do I do this to myself…

So I’ve had a change of heart since last we spoke…after playing some more games practicing my Menoth, I came to a realization.

I was burned out on Menoth.  I’ve been playing them for a few years straight now, minus the 6 or so months I broke off to play Rhyas last year.

So I’ve done an about face and will be playing Circle Orboros at Warmachine Weekend this year, eKaya and Kromac to be precise.  Yes, with only a month of practice.  I going to have fun not to take the whole thing, but hey, who knows?  Maybe I’m a Circle savant…

Updates to come…

Shifting Stones and Stone Keeper

Sorry no witty title this time.

Just a quick shot of the Shifting Stones and Stone Keeper for my fledgling Circle Orboros force. I actually painted this group up a month or so back, but never got around to posting it.

I’m still not sure what I want to do with my Circle.  As in, whether I want to even do it at all or not.  It was originally going to be a 50 point eKaya T4 list, but then I had thoughts to expand it into a full-fledged force.  I have all the models for the eKaya list, but now I’m not so sure I want to keep going with them at all.

I’m all in on Menoth and my Rhyas Rearguard, but I worry I won’t have the time for THREE armies…

Where the wild things will be…

Sorry it’s been awhile since I last updated the site, but as you could have guessed from the last post: I’ve been suffering from a case of burn out coupled with a few other relatively mundane reasons that have cut into my hobby time and motivation.

I intend on starting to update this site again in the next few weeks as things for me settle back down.

In the mean time, enjoy a teaser pic.

Pureblood Warpwolf work in progress shot.

Ghastly?
Ghastly?

This weekend I worked a bit on some of my Circle stuff.  This is more of a pet (eh? eh?) project for me, so I’m not rushing through it and I’m being very particular of my work (more so than usual).

I wanted to share with you all a quick WIP shot of the Pureblood Warpwolf and get your feedback on it.  I’m not sure I 100% like how it came out.  My process was to coat the whole thing in a regal-ish blue, then highlight with P3 Frostbite, then finally with P3 Morrow White.  I was trying to give him a ghostly, icy feel, but I think I over did it on the white.  I also think I should have maybe done a layer in between the blue and frostbite.

What are your thoughts?

I also worked on some bases for them using a basing kit I recently picked up and will review from Secret Weapon, here’s a sneak peek:

Saying goodbye to old komrades & the start of something new…

Yes, the time has come to sadly bid adieu to the Motherland…

My Khador has been sitting on the shelf for the past year or so and my interest has waned in them and shifted towards other factions and/or games.  Plus I’m a full fledged Menite now.  So my Khador has hit the chopping block.  After a sale of the whole lot fell through, I’ve begun to piece out the army.  Some is already en route to some local hands, but the others are up for grabs.

If you are interested, you can have a look at the bartertown post here, and either contact me there or here through the form on the this page.

Well, now that the somber part of this post is done, let’s have a look at some new projects I’m starting on.  Shall we?

Painting table update!

Bane Lord Tarturus - I hate you.
THEY CALL ME…BLT.

I’ve been up to my eyeballs in commissions lately, so I figured I’d show them here as to give you guys a break from the usually Menoth-centric offerings.

First up is a figure we all love to hate: Bane Lord Tartarus.  This lot is actually for a local player as he gears up for Lock and Load this year, and includes a handful of solos.

I think I’m most proud of how is armor came out.  I think it’s perfectly suited to Cryx’s “I don’t give **** ’bout no tarnish” style.

A cyborg in Cryx? Who knew?

Darragh Wrathe is also coming out particularly well.

Giving the gift of lightning to my bro

pKrueger - Let there be lightning!
pKrueger – Let there be lightning!

This past Christmas I got my stepbro interested into playing WM/H and the faction that interested him was Circle Orboros.

Lucky me, Circle happens to be half of the Hordes 2-player box as we all know. Christmas gift achieved!  Something I wanted to do for him was paint up a warcaster for him, but between Templecon prep and other things, it fell by the wayside unfortunately.
I was finally able to this guy done for him, mimicking what little I remember from his scheme (we only started painting the Feral).  This thing is going in the mail today.

Little by little, the painting queue will clear…
