Ok – I spent the weekend at the beach (Oregon Coast). I did not paint or do anything hobby related… Except for Disc Golf 😀. 

 

  

  
I picked this stuff up in preparations for more Infinity hobby which waits behind my OFCC army.  In a couple weeks we are going to have a learning game session at the club. If that goes well – we could launch into something bigger later (league perhaps ?  I hope so!)

After getting back from the mini weekender I sat down and worked on my army. Not lots of progress to show at this point. Still trying to get everything on the same theme. 

I did get a test figure started for my corsair troopers though. I’m trying to honor the old RT Eldar Pirate days – along with some new looks that match and unify the force. I think I’ve made a good start. 

 
I’m hoping to do more this week.

Black Friday Apoc – 2014!

We held our annual apoc game on black friday (nov 28)… At WoW in Portland, OR. It was great fun – I had a blast. The phantom titan was beastly – and I think I will not take it to another Apoc event unless there is another giant titan to spar with. The combined forces for “good” defeated the legions of chaos – in a somewhat slaughter.

The game was 30,000pts … 5k per player in 3 man teams. Here is the photo dump of the event.

IMG_1709.JPGHere we have assembled the side of “good”. … awaiting the side of chaos.  “Good” consisted of Eldar (wraithguard-my ofcc army), an ArmorCast Scorpion, and the Phantom.  IG air cav… tanks …tanks… and more tanks.  A couple groups of IG Knights.. and some Space Marines and sisters.  As you can see in the photos.

 

IMG_1710-0.JPGInitially the Chaos Warhound placement… but he thought better of it and slid to the far end (away from the Phantoms LOS).

 

IMG_1711.JPGBoth sides are assembled!…

 

IMG_1712.JPGThose vortex rockets were sure annoying!  (they help end the Eldar Scorpions time on the table).

IMG_1718.JPGThings get really messy those first couple rounds…

 

IMG_1717.JPGThe short time they were on the table… the Hornets managed to rough up some spawn.

IMG_1723.JPGNot sure whom finishes the Scorpion… but its days were numbered at this point.  I did clear the table of a couple things before that happened.

 

IMG_1720.JPGDarn little pests…  they did damage to my Phantom… but soon they were cleared away by a stomp with help from my wraith knight.

IMG_1725.JPGThe Phantom really helped “cleanse” the table … those big D-cannon pie plate templates were NASTY.

 

 

IMG_1726.JPGThis demon (blue one with wings…) did a bit of damage to the Phantom – too little too late.  I stomped him… with help from my allies as well.

 

IMG_1727.JPGBegone demon!

 

IMG_1728.JPGNow we’re just mopping up… I think we went to the 5th round.  After the Phantom “one-shotted” the Chaos Warhound… things went pretty quickly.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

TSHFT – finished figures

Here are a couple figures that I had finished right before TSHFT a few weeks ago. Jain Zar I started and completed in about two days… the warlock I just had to touch up to fit the wraithguard army paint scheme. I had hoped to post up more from this army, but looking closer I noticed that most of the figures are not up to my 100% finished army. So I will post up the completed units as I complete them.

Unfortunately, the new Eldar codex is over a year away… So I probably will not play them much in the coming year. I do plan on finishing up the Revenant Titan before the Black Friday apoc game. So there should be plenty of progress photos of that. Army wise I will probably concentrate on my Dark Eldar army.

Sometime soon I will start posting up some “archival” blogs – pulling old stuff from my old blog and posting them here… Compiled and compressing some of the content of course.
