Genestealer Cults in Shadow War - Armageddon

We're going to be doing our second day of games using the new Shadow War supplement this weekend. My cult has gone through three games and advanced a little, while one of my hapless fighters was killed.

Shadow War Armageddon: First Thoughts

Shadow War: Armageddon came out last weekend with a pretty big hype train behind it. Copies of the boxed game were sold out pretty much everywhere, and scalpers were selling them online for huge sums of money.

Included in the boxed set are the rules, terrain, dice, templates, tokens, and two kill teams: space orks and space marine scouts.

AdeptiCon Review: The Battle of the Juniata - French and Indian War Sharp Practice

AdeptiCon has come and gone and with it the 'I did all that hobby and now its over' blues. We did end up playing our Sharp Practice participation game, which was the height of my experience. We put a ton of work into it and it came out great.

The Road to AdeptiCon - French and Indian War Troops Done - Provincials and Native Americans + Terrain!

Here they come Jacques, all the gamers to AdeptiCon
I'm finally finished with my project for the French and Indian War game at AdeptiCon. We're playing Sharp Practice, a scenario called Skirmish on the Juniata. We've had some players drop out due to not finishing their models, but we'll still have enough to do a fun game. I committed myself to finishing 24 provincial soldiers and 12 native Americans, plus some terrain for the board.

The Road to Adepticon: Infinity ITS Preparation

This past weekend I finished up the last few models for two Infinity ITS tournaments I am playing in at Adepticon. I have only played a total of two games of Infinity since an ITS event last November so I am worried about being rusty. Fortunately the first tournament is a manageable 200 point Spec Ops format so the model count is lower.  The bigger tournament is on Friday with 400 point lists. The last Michigan GT tournament was at 400 points so at least I won't be going in completely unprepared.

The Road To AdeptiCon - Finishing the Virginia Regiment for the French and Indian War

Yesterday I posted my paint guidelines for my Virginia Provincials. I went through and finished everything, varnished, based, etc. All in all the project took me about two months from January to now, to paint 24 infantry, two officers, a drummer, and a standard bearer. All models are from Galloping Major.

The Road to AdeptiCon - Painting the Virginia Regiment

I'm getting close to being finished with my main project for AdeptiCon, my Virginia Regiment provincials for our Sharp Practice game on Friday night. Its been about a two month paint slog on these guys with lots of different colors and being really careful with painting buttons (I don't know if I've ever painted buttons before).
