Hi guys, I have a quick bonus post for you today, just a couple of last minute ‘quick wins’ to share before I head off to BOYL. In my last post I mentioned that I would be having a crack at WFB for the very first time – I’m hoping to be up against an Empire army run by Tytus from Gameoftravel. Now, I might be a total WFB noob, but there is one thing I do know about Fantasy, and that is DRAGONS ROCK!!! I have never painted a Dragon before, but recently acquired a Tom Meier Zombie Dragon from way back in the misty mists of 1986… I got her busted neck repaired, and got her sorted over the weekend ready for painting this week. She was an absolute joy to paint – in fact, she practically painted herself to be honest! This is all done with various washes and a bit of technical paint, but no ‘solid’ base colours at all:
She’s quite tricky to photograph, but isn’t she a beauty? I think I may enter her into the BOYL painting competition :-)
But… that’s not all guys – I also quickly turned out a second kill-team for Necromunda/Shadow War, ready to take on the trials of Helsreach! I got these from a recent Kickstarter by Blind Beggar miniatures – loosely modelled on Marvin from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy movie, their goofy charm was irresistible :-)
I’m running them as alternative Necrons, with the Gold Tops being Immortals (with the Appointed squad leader in the middle):
The Black Tops being stealthy Deathmarks:
The Silver Top as a Warrior:
And this lovely lady being a Praetorian (with her mighty Handbag of Covenant!!)
And here is the game-legal 1000 point starting team:
Bloody terrifying, right?! I know they are low on detail and are just a bit of fun really, but I do find them quite sinister… I’ve seen enough Dr. Who to know that cute & helpful robots always turn on you… I reckon my kids are going to love these, and I can see them turning up in all kinds of pulp/sci-fi scenarios, as well as in games of Shadow War.
Anyway, that’s it dudes and dudettes, I’m heading up to Newark tomorrow so I’ll catch you on the flip side with a full run-down of the weekend – I hope I remember to take lots of photos for you!! Peace out :-)
What the shit??? Haha those little martian dudes are whacky as all hell man haha. I love em. Especially the little lady. Very cute. That Dragon though, OMG Brilliant. Great pose and, of course, the paint job is spot on mate. Well done to you.
Thanks man – there is something adorable about them, isn’t there? It proves the diabolical and crafty nature of the Necrons – only a deeply twisted race would design such a cute and unassuming combat chassis, and then integrate cutting edge Gauss weaponry… Mwhahaha!!!
Oh, and the Dragon? What a pleasure to paint – glad you like her mate! :-)
Exterminate! Exterminate! Hahaha, those Martian not-so-killer bots are great.
And the dragon is brilliant too. Great paint job and impressive that you only painted it with washes.
:-D thanks mate, they are good fun, and the Dragon is bloody lovely – I highly recommend painting at least one old Dragon in your life ;-)
Lovely work once again! Those necrons are hilarious.
Yes they are – they certainly make me smile! Thanks dude! :-D
Love that dragon. Great stuff 👍
Cheers mate – I love it too :-)
Love the conversions/counts-as Necrons! Lots of fun. Have a great time with the games!
Thanks dude, I’ll give it a damn good go!! :-)
Hahaha, the dragon is magnificent, but the robots steal the show. I love them!
Cheets dude – you know, I had a feeling that you in particular would like the Nerdcrons :-)
Awesome dragon mate. I remember that model well. Have a great time and I hope you kick arse with cuteness overload.
Hey, thanks Mark, ain’t she a beauty?
