The Secret to Modelling and Painting 2 - The Opinioning

I know... WORST... TITLE... EVER...

But let's get past that to the meat of the article.  Part 2 of this article is much more opinion-based than the first part.  Granted, a lot of what was said in part one is opinion, but for the most part, they are pretty obvious, and a little hard to argue with (yes having a ton of models actually does make you less likely to paint them).  Part two, on the other hand, will deal more with the painting of models, and will be very skewed to my personal opinion of painting.  Will it be as informative?  Maybe.  Will it spark conversation?  I really hope so.  So let's get down to it: (Also, I couldn't find relative ranting pictures, so enjoy these pictures of puppies!)

The Secret to Modelling and Painting

As I returned from the rain-soaked Prairies of Alberta, I found myself once again in comfortable surroundings, ready to sit down and paint up a storm.  I put out the models I wanted to paint, sat them in front of me, and stopped dead in my tracks.

Has this ever happened to you?  Have you ever found yourself keen and ready to paint, only to fall flat when it actually comes time to dip your brush?

It got me to thinking: What's stopping me?  So, as is my nature, I thought and thought about it.  My process came up with the following questions:

An alternate take on the Heresy

The folks over at Bolter and Chainsword have developed quite the alternate timeline for 40k.  It's a different look at the history of the game, using the old "What if..." adage.  It's a FANTASTIC read for any fan of Space Marines.  It's a simple premise.  "What if Horus did not turn to Chaos... so Chaos turned to Rogal Dorn?" Just simply awesome they way they retell the Heresy.  I couldn't quit reading it.

Well i for one have been WoW clean for about a year and a half now......and than this happens. WAR was pretty fun for abit but lost out on the simple fact the game was trying to hard to do too many things.

It's also in my opinion that space MMOs can't work but who knows, i'll still be there launch day!

Video after the break!

Apocalypse and things I've learned!

The local, 40k Escalation league end Apocalypse game, all eight hours and 40k+ points of it has come and gone.  It was a long but VERY fun day playing with a good group of guys and friends.  Club mates even came to watch.  However, since then (and with discussion with others) I've come to realize some things that would improve my next big game experience.   Let's discuss a few of these.

Bell of Lost Souls blog roll

Though not everyone likes BoLS, there is no disputing they get the most traffic on the Warhammer/Minis Gaming blogosphere.  So, with that in mind we've teamed up with them and joined their blog roll.  This should give us a ton more traffic and more readers!  Our new posts will show up on their homepage's blog roll.

And to the new readers and the BoLS staff... welcome!

It's... go time!

It's that time of the year.  The annual escalation league is over.  Armies are assembled and painted.  Players are well trained, on point... and exhausted.  So much playing over these past few months and it all comes to a head on Sunday with the League Ending Apocalypse game!

This game is going to be a doozy.  Seven players have signed up with a possible ten by game time.  Ten players all playing, as it stands, 4000pts and higher.  The crazy part?  It's all painted.  Every single model that will be in the table.  All 40000 points (or more) ALL PAINTED.  And, really, it's a national affair.  Not only do we have local people playing but non leaguers are coming from out of town.  Some driving two hours.  Others taking the day long trek (literally) from another province!  The event of the year!

Are you Prepared?

So as I'm packing up for my big trip out East, and gathering all my Eldar for what I'm sure will be the battle to end all battles at Wallshammer's place this weekend, I got to thinking: Do I have everything?

Ork Non-Tactica

First, let me explain. I have been a long-time Eldar player. Since 3rd edition. But the Eldar are and likely always will be a very unforgiving army. You feel every model lost. You play on the razor's edge of defeat, knowing if you don't play a near-perfect game your chances are slim. It gets to be a little tiring after a while. So, WAAAAAAY back in 3rd, I decided I wanted a more relaxed army. Something I didn't have to meticulously plan out (both in army list and in battlefield approach). So I chose, as my second main army, Orks, the kings of wacky, random, out-of-control mayhem.
