Epic 3D Grim Dark "train cars"


        I never want to invest so much time in painting these dudes. They will be a once in a great while terrain feature. I want to rattle can and wash them and be done. 
        MIG rust and DKOK transfers were added in an attempt to delay painting ACW horses.

Warmaster Lizardmen part II


            At first I was thinking I would paint all the individual lizards different colors. Iguanas are all sorts of colors. The little lizards that run all over FL are different colors. Then reality came forward. If that were to happen they would take forever. I don't want it to take forever. 2 months at the most. And they would look horrible. So the units themselves will be one uniform color, like a tribe or family group, and every other unit will be a different lizard color. 

            Traditional GW or new GW blue lizards are first. The first 2 units of Saurus. There are 5 more on the painting table at work. One purple and one brown.

    Almost fucked up here. As I was attaching them to bases I quickly noticed the lizards lean forward. It would be near impossible to get the feet painted, flocked. Only the back row got attached. The front row has to wait unit they dry and get their feet painted and basing paste gets added.
        After the leaning lizards got straighten out, the first two units are based.

Regimental Fire & Fury Wagons


Not much happening. I didn't bring anything to work. As for once we were busy. Then Mom went to the hospital. These were completed as I plow through the CSA Cav.

The first set of horses for the CSA. Awaiting wash and final highlight.

Warmaster Tomb Kings Vs Dark Elves 2000pts


            Kal hosted again. The central PA group is trying to establish at the least a month gaming event. Last month we played Epic. This month it was Warmaster for me. Kal and Shawn played Epic later. I was strapped for time and could only get in one game.

            Tomb Kings took the win. So how Kal's general got bounced into a locked combat with only single stands left. The dice revolted, the general died, and that was that in turn 5.

AdeptiCon 2022 Dates

        Maybe we will actual get an AdeptiCon in 2022. I did not agree with the excuses for canceling 2021. Other Cons have been held. Others are going ahead. If IL would not allow for a capacity needed to go ahead, another state should have been selected. Most of us travel from around the country any ways.


March 23 to 27th 2022

Marauder Industries "GrimDark tower"

        Grim Dark stuff printed by Marauder Industries. Marauder is a veteran owned US based custom print service. They offer laser burnt MDF stuff too. Marauder made the "Epic Tool" in MDF for us.

                Here I have Marauder on the left and an eBay print service. Marauder's is in filament and the other in resin. Marauder was less than half the cost. Even being printed with filament, Marauder's quality and resolution is better than the resin print. That is normally not the case. I am extremely impressed with Marauder's prints.

Regimental Fire and Fury "Union Cavalry"


        The horse have been done for months. The riders were completed two weeks ago. I had no time to mount them or lay the final seal down. This is a total of two Old Glory packs, 15 stands.

Net EA Tau Viorla Vs Lyanden 3000pts

        I have not played Epic in 6 months. Or longer! It has been so long that I thought I was getting myself lost going to Kal's house. Did I miss the turn. Its not this far. This does not look like the way.

        It has been so long, I was worried about remembering how to play. when looking at what to bring. World Eaters and Nids became massively complicated. I couldn't make a list for the Fists. I didn't want to take an old tourney list, this was a dice throwing event. Not a smash mouth tourney work up. 

        So I pulled the Tau out of retirement. I was thinking with a shoty memory I need an army that didn't send me to the QRF for every roll. No one wants to be dragged along another failure to perpare one's self.         With the blue fish, I dusted off the broken shelved Tau big suits. I played the Riptides and friends at AdeptiCon one year. They smashed everyone to pieces. They were extra broken.

2018 AdeptiCon list
(extra 50pts are the test reduction of the Manta's cost)

        After that event the suits never came out again. Until this Sunday. I sent Kal my list ahead of time. Kal took out his point ears. He was loaded for bear. All RA with meltas.

Kal List;

My List
        I said he was loaded for bear. The big suits are tougher than knights. They did not care. At all! It took 4 activations to break the Y'VaHra. That was the worst result for the suits. I took him 5 - 0. They are too tough. They should save on a 4-4 or a 3-6Inv. The 4-4-6 and 3-3-6 have sent them back to the dusty shelf again.

        It wasn't that my dice were hot. I still failed 9 activation in the 3 turns. One group of Fire Warriors failed every time. I failed 4 activation in turn 3 in a row! Cross fire, marker lights, and 2 hits 1 kill out of 9 dice?
