I've been working on my Redeemer, Revenger, and Vassal. I'll have WIP shots up soon. This color scheme is definitely not getting easier.

Forget WIP shots. I finished the 'jacks and the vassal! Beware, the color is off a bit on this one. The red looks more like magenta and its highlights were washed out. These guys look a lot better in person.

The new stuff!



The battlegroup!




All I have left are the Zealots and the Choir. I should be done in a week or so.

I know you're painting skills are above reproach (to put it mildly) but this is even more incredible than usual for you.  Rock on!

Steph and I played a game over the weekend to test out our 350 point lists. Pretty much all I learned from that outing is that 10 Zealots with a Monolith Bearer might be a little unfair in a low point value game.

Aside from that, there isn't a lot to go over right now as all the minis did their jobs. I definitely need to get used to these arc node things Khador doesn't have the money to produce. Plus, Reznik has a lot of useful spells. Between them and the jacks he likes to run, I'm definitely feeling a little tight with his focus rating of 6.

I'll be typing up a battle report of our next game later this week.

No updates from me for a bit. I'll be in Portland for the next week.

I am totally bogged down right now. Painting full units is way more time consuming than 'jacks and solos. I'm like 7 hours into my Zealots and I'm probably close to 70% done. Uhg.

I have a full unit of Idrians coming up at 750 points and a unit of Flameguard in the future as well. Certainly not looking forward to them right now.

Oh man, don't get me all depressed about painting. The Bane Knights are almost ready for priming and painting, as are the rest of my models. Looks like the rest of the month will be a rush of painting.

There's a huge difference between 11 Zealots and 8 Bane Knights. You'll be fine.

The Cygnar base set is primed with the 1st coat of the steel gray on the metal. I'm also filing and smoothing out a unit of Arcane Tempest Gun Mages for priming with a unit of Long Gunners on order. Hoping to hit the Jacks tonight with the base coat of blue.

Ive managed to play a few games in the last week and learned a lot.

1. FOC 6 is rough when running 'jacks and slinging spells. There just isn't enough to get everything done.

2. Protectorate warcasters need a softer target when attempting to assassinate on their own. While Reznik is tough, he's no Butcher.

3. I desperately need melée troops. The game gets very hard when my zealots get engaged.

4. I need more jacks for Brand of Heresy to be totally worth casting.

Its crunch time here in Quincy. Steph and I have been painting all weekend to make the deadline we set. Despite a fair amount of work still ahead, I think we'll be able to make it. The zealots I've been working on for almsot three weeks are slowly getting there. On Monday and Tuesday, I'll need to get the choir finished. That's going to be a little close, but I think I can make it.

Finished Zealots!

After a few weeks of absolute torture, my zealots are painted. I never want to see another unit ever again.
