Spring Update!

This joint has been a bit dead lately.  I have been super slammed with painting, sculpting, tournaments, and of course tons of real life.  Adepticon has come and went, and it was a fantastic time this year!!  I was able to bag best painted with my Soviet Heavy Assault Gun Regiment for the Late War tournament!  This was a great accomplishment for me.  I have never won a painting award before, and it was great feeling to get that plaque!  I will have to get some proper gallery shots of my Russians up here soon.

I am painting some critters for my friend’s Descent boardgame.  It will be nice to paint something a bit different, and casual like that.  The sculpts kind of lack something to be desired, but I may be able to fix up some of their weaker details through the painting.

The Warhammer High Elves have finally begun!  This project has been on the back-burner for nearly 2 years!  I am excited to get a start on this, and with an aggresive deadline looming, I will need to hussle!  I have been taking some breif shots of works in progress on my Seaguard for twitter… check em out:

V3 News from Battlefront

Flames of War LogoAs many of you know, Battlefront is about to release Flames of War version 3.  Check out this video for some news about the new books, and the sweet freebie that our Kiwi friends are giving to folks who own a copy of V2.

Initially I was very worried when I heard that V3 was coming out.  I felt this way because I am very fond of the version 2 rules, and can think of little that I would change.  Now that I have heard some of the rumors about what is likely to change, and how, I am very excited about the new edition!  It’s going to be quite a hustle to get up on these prior to Adepticon, but the rest of the group is chomping at the bit as well, so I imagine that the spring will be replete with the sound of tank engines, machine-gun fire, and exploding artillery shells!

Say what you want about various game companies, their supporters (fan-boys), and detractors (whine-asses), but I am often impressed by Battlefront’s ability to rock!  I guess this makes me a fan-boy!  😀
