BBC – Back to Base-ics, Tales of a Master Baser

October 17, 2010

So i cracked on with my bases, and only just managed to get them completed. Now i decided coming into this project that because this was going to be one of my new demoing battleboxes i would a) Paint them in the standard colours and b) not go OTT on the basing. This meant i got to ply my trade at doing some pretty basic bases, which i haven’t done in a long time. so my tools of the trade that i used:

GW sand
GW Gravel (not sure if they still do this)
PVA glue
Super glue
GW Scorched Grass flock
GW Burnt Grass flock

I unfortunately managed to lose all my pictures of me making the bases, but the process was simple:

Super glue and glue down some gravel in patches
Water down pva all over the base and dip in sand
PVA in splodges on the base and glue down some more gravel
Seal the whole lot with Watered down PVA

the painting side of it i managed to capture however, with some decidedly dodgy photos!

a basecoat of Umbral Umber, or GW Scorched Brown


a second coat of Thornwood green, or GW Charadon Granite


a light coat of Bootstrap Brown, or Calthan Brown GW


a very light drybrushing of Khemri brown


Paint the rocks, i did greatcoat grey, codex grey, fortress grey. the greatcoat grey could be missed out.


I mixed scorched grass and burnt grass together to create a darker flock, and applied with super glue.


Painted edges, i like to call this 'Rimming'

Next update Tuesday: WIP Sorscha!

The Battle Box Challenge!

October 11, 2010

So i realised the other day when i posted the Cardboard battle report up, i’ve really dropped the ball a little bit. I felt a little ashamed when Iron Agenda linked us in show notes and we were lacking any form of new post…

I need to explain my absence a little. First of all, i’ve got a little bit into Malifaux. so my recent (but little) hobby has been focused on painting up my Kirai crew. Secondly, i’ve been working like a fricking mad dog, but as a result, i now have a fair whack of monies available.

Now, feeling the urge to get back into my Warmachine hobby, i decided i needed a new challenge. Something akin to the original BTC, but something that would keep the Blog ticking over aswell. After seeing Lost Hemisphere’s plastic casters article, i knew i had to get one of these new battleboxes.

So here’s the Challenge:
Starting from the 15th October i shall have fully assembled, painted and based one Battlebox from a faction of my choice by 31st October
There will be updates every other day.

now i know what you’re thinking, ’16 days? pff easy’. Well let me answer that… This isn’t a challenge that is meant to be tough, or difficult, it’s just designed to get me back blogging regularly, and get me painting what will hopefully be a new faction for me (even though i can guarantee i WILL be doing gators) and it’s a little fun.

Now here’s the real fun part!

I’m basically throwing this challenge out to everyone who reads the blog. Build a battlebox with me! send me your WIP photos, any Photos you have of recently painted battleboxes, or any battleboxes you’re particularly proud of!

Oh and just so you know, the battlebox i have chosen to do is…

For the Motherland!

P.s: My username has changed on the PP forums, now look out for me as PG_Tips!

Peoples Army – Is this the end?

May 13, 2010

Hi everyone, well we are kind on in a prediciment at the moment.

as it stands the army contains eButcher, wardog, spriggan, beserker, doom reavers and ua.

now by my calculations if we want to stick to the tier system we will pic from the following two lists

eButcher w/ wardog

Spriggan

Beserker

Fenris

Doomreavers w/ UA

doom reavers

Doomreavers

manhunter

or

eButcher w/ wardog

Spriggan

Beserker

Fenris

Doomreavers w/ UA

Doom reavers w/UA

Doomreavers

both are tier 4 and 35pt lists. anything other than that wont be tier lists so this is it after over 300 votes it could be the end pick you option or if the people so choose we will pick different options(ie non tier)

Peoples army – Second jack choice

May 7, 2010

Hi all sorry about the last post my kind collegue petezilla step in to help a guy in need.

first i wanted to show you some models finished so far (i did remember to paint something this time) so we have the man him self his trusty companion kai(named after my sisters mastiff) and the spriggan.

Now thats overwith after the last vote it was quite clearly a unit of doom reavers with UA and a poll for jack choice.

now so far we have: butcher,wardog,spriggan and doom reaver with unit attachment, so by my calculations we have a remaining 22pts left.

my fellow khador player adam has imformed me that if we want to stick to a strictly tier list then only the beserker would be chosen as the next jack(but what does he know), this again is purely for the people to decide so as ever lend me your votes(and please no hung decisions-british politics humour for ya). both will be running until wednesday 12th as ill try and get 2 in per week.

and next choice

Peoples Army – Jack Choice

April 25, 2010

Hello everyone,

well after the last vote it was a non decider with 10 votes each so i thought it best to ask one of my trusted firends to decide the poll, and it seemed only fair as he didnt get to choose his own army either.

so after much debate in jasons mind (scary to think what goes on in there) he chose the tier list.

now first things are the jack choices, eButcher has 6 jack points and the army will be 35pt in total if that helps decide which one you want.

ill also run a poll for the next poll choice aswell ie. solos,units or another jack.

as ever please leave your comments on here or on the post ill put on the PP forums as these votes continue to be very close so your comment may sway people in your favour.

voting ends on sunday 2nd may, Happy voting

People’s Army challenge – Warcaster

April 18, 2010

Hi all again,

well i must say that was close on 2% diffence for the top 3 armies. thank you to all that voted.

now as i know what army i will be doing the khador book will be ordered pronto from forge-games and now i leave you with the wonderfully difficult decision of what caster to choose.

now before you vote dont forget to leave your recommendations on either the comments or the linked pp forum page as your opinion could sway a voter which could make all the difference.

http://www.privateerpressforums.com/showthread.php?p=289431#post289431

also i know everyone has their favourite warcaster but for this the idea is that they must be flexible to take on as much as possible (ie be the best caster if you can only choose one and don’t know the opponent). also a second vote to see if we should add the faithful companion.

right then i will stop typing and let you cast your vote.

also poll closes on the 23rd of april
