Hello all, I figured I would start a little offshoot of my regular blog Nerds vs Ninjas
here to sort of progress my painting. I figured I should probably start all this off with a few pictures. I ended
up ditching a lot of other games, as for the past year or so, Historicals have been my primary focus. I got a
pretty sweet deal from my LGS on some FoW stuff and I dove right in! I'm not the greatest of painters, my goal
is to get my minis to what I consider "tabletop quality", and I'm prefectly ok with that!
Here's what all I painted up last year in 2014: my Hermann Goring Panzerkompanie

Image


Currently on my desk/working on:


FoW:
- 2x Italian Rifle Squads (18 stands)
- Italian HQ (2 stands)








Finished:


Saga: (Teutonic Knights/Milites Christi)
- Warlord
- Mounted Priest
- 8x Crossbowmen
- 16x Foot Warriors
- 20x Mounted Hearthguard
2x Bannermen (extras)

FoW:
- 4x Shermans
- 2x Pak 40's
- German HQ (2 [s]stands)
- 2x German Grenadier squads (14 stands total)
- 2x Semovente 90/53's + carriers

Battletech:
- Battle Lance (4 mechs)

KDM:
- The White Lion
- 4 Starting Survivors
- Screaming Antelope
- The Butcher
- the Watcher
- The Hand
- The King's Man
- The Phoenix


Frostgrave:
- 6 Treasure Tokens
- 6 Living Statues
- Goblin Wizard
- Goblin Apprentice
- 8x Pathfinder Goblins
- Fountain Scenario Piece


Age of Sigmar
- Khorgorath
- Khorne Lord
- 5x Khorne Warriors
- Bloodsecrator
- Bloodstoker
- 20x Bloodreavers

One of the things you may notice is that I have a pretty small "to paint" list, and I tend to keep it that way. One
of my personal "Hobby Rules" I live by is: "Paint what you buy, and don't buy more til they're painted!" So basically,
I don't buy new models until I've finished whatever is currently on my desk. It keeps hobby costs waaaay down
compared to a lot of friends I know (which also keeps the wife happy) but also serves as great motivation to keep
me painting what already have, so no boxes or unfinished stuff starts stacking up. I'll be the first to tell you, its not easy!



To show a bit of progress, I finished the following a week or so ago:
I had picked up 2 Panzer III's that I didn't really need a few years back before I really dove into FoW. In order for
them not go to waste, (and to stick to my hobby rule) I converted one into a Pz III N, and painted them up. I doubt
they'll hit the table much, but I had planned to use them as an escort option for my Tiger in Mid War.

Image



I also finished up the 1st "test model" for my Shermans from the Open Fire box. I'm really big on the Mediterranean
operations, so I had this guy done up like he's slated to invade Sicily. I'm really looking to use more of the US Rangers
than anything, so I don't think I'll use my Shermans much outside of Mid War where they and the Rangers fought in
similar engagements. I also went for more of a "Fresh from the assembly line" look to them as opposed to the
weathered and battered German Tanks.

Image



And there you have it! As far as progress on my list list goes, the Shermans are basecoated, as well as the Pak 40's,
all the bases are also textured, so once the tanks and 40's are done, then I plan to start the infantry. I also finally set
up a gaming a table in my Nerd Lair (i.e. my Man Cave) and Ive working to fill it to a playable level with terrain.
Recently I've built a number of rocky hills, and about 7, pretty large ruined buildings, with a goal of being able to use
them in multiple systems. Once the above list is completed, I'm not sure what I plan to do... I may begin to build up
my FoW Ranger list, I may focus on Bolt Action (Rangers vs HG again), SAGA has been calling my name a lot lately
as well... Oh, and I cannot forget about Guild Ball, I'm gonna dive head-first into that one! Or I may work on my old
favorite game, Battletech. Choices, choices...

Until next time,
-WuhSawBe-

I finished up a bit of cheap and easy terrain, built from styrofoam packing materials. I'm pretty happy with their
outcome and will do wonders for filling up my table! Here they are:

Image


Image

I think I need to add a bit more flock to the hill the right, but that is easily done. With these off my painting desk,
Ive gone back to working on my above list, and the Shermans are really close to completion as well!

Finished up the other Shermans from the Open Fire boxset...

Image


Image
(booty shot)

At first I was a little annoyed by the fact that i couldn't paint a perfect yellow circle (coffee = twitchy hands), but
then I recalled reading somewhere online that the yellow markings, designating them as bound for a Sicily landing,
were hastily applied and not at all uniformed, so now I'm ok with it. I was also debating on going back in and
adding markings to the front and top of the lead tank, but decided against, mostly to make him easier for me to spot
within the unit.

I also did a bit of drybrushing (to resemble a "de-cloak" effect) to my extra TIE Phantom for X-wing, just to be able to
differentiate the two if I ever decide to run them both in a single list. It was honestly so little work, it's not even worth
a photo. (Though I still added it and marked it off my initial list) I've also been working on my Panzergrenadiers and
Pak 40's. Since I've also gotten into SAGA recently, i think I'm going to be sitting down and generating a Teutonic
Knights list, and purchasing some models from there in the next few days. (Kind of breaking my original rule of not
buying more minis til all my others are painted, but oh well!)

Until next time,
-WuhSawBe-

Not much of an update, but I did finish up a test model for my Saga Crossbowmen...

Image


Image


I'm not the greatest when it comes to freehanding stuff, but I think it will look fine from the tabletop view. I'm
planning to try a bit of painter's tape to get the really nice, crisp lines wherever/whenever possible in the future.

Now, back to painting....

Finished up the rest of the Crossbowmen... the next night, while reading a bit of history on the Teutonic Knights
discovered why the sergeants wore a "T" symbol instead of a full cross. I ended up going back in and easily
painting over the tops of the crosses so they would be the more accurate "T" shapes. (Pics were taken
BEFORE the symbol touch up)


Image

Until next time!

Recently finished up my Warlord, *loosely* based on Poppo Von Osterna. I still stink at freehand stuff (hands
are too jittery, too much coffee) but I think he'll look fine from the tabletop!

Image


Image


Image



With my Warlord checked off my list, I've decided to move onto working on my Knights, which will form the
bulk of all my Teutonic Knights armies...

Until next time!

It's been a while since my last update, and I've since finished up my initial 6pt Teutonic Knights (Milities Christi)
warband for Saga...



Image

The 12x Hearthguard in a shot taken directly from painting desk...




Image

and...

Image

My two units of foot warriors... one armed with spears and the other with hand-weapons. There are no special
rules for the different weapons, I just wanted a way to differentiate the two units.



Finally, a shot of the whole 6pt army...

Image


I've still got a couple of extras to finish up before I can move on to my next project. Not sure if I'll add some more
options to my Teutonic Knights in the form of more crossbows or mounted warriors, start a second Saga force,
or start something else...

Until next time,
-WuhSawBe-

Finished up a few more things, 8x more Hearthguard for SAGA, bringing my total up to 20, or 5 pts worth.
I also finished up my Battle-priest...


Image



Next up, my Battle-priest. I really should come up with a name for him...
Image


Image


With these finished, all I have left on my desk is 2x bannermen to finish, then I'll have my entire first SAGA
purchase 100% completed.... until I either decide to add to it, or start a 2nd one. I've also got a Battle Lance
(4x Mechs) for battletech and some FoW Germans as mentioned above to finish up as well. With my daughter
in school, I have extra painting time, so hopefully I can get more projects completed!

Until next time, thanks for viewing!

My final two pieces of my initial Saga purchase is now complete! I've really got to decide what to do next in saga...

Image


Image


At least I have a few other projects to finish for Battletech and Flames of War while I decide what to paint next...

Until next time, thanks for viewing!

After finishing up all that Saga stuff, I've begun to work on my Battletech and Flames of War stuff. Thus far, I've
finished up my Zeus, one of my favorite Inner Sphere mechs...

Image

I've done him in a Wolf's Dragoons Epsilon Regiment scheme, with a bit of added red based on some MWO
repaint art that Ive seen online. I'll have to add in the actual Wolf's Dragoons and Epsilon decals later. This was
also the first time I've used pigment powders to do a bit of weathering, which I'm still working on figuring out...

Until next time, thanks for viewing!

continuing to try and clear off my painting desk in anticipation for the arrival of Kingdom Death Monster and the
AVP miniatures game, I've got a couple more projects completed!

Image

Fits up, the 1ic and 2ic for my Hermann Goring Panzergrenadiers....


Image

Next, are the two Pak 40's from the Open Fire box set. I attempted to do some SS-Camo for these guys, which
will stand out from the rest of grenadiers which will the a combination of the Luftwaffe blue uniform and the splinter
camo, which most often associated with Hermann Goring forces around Anzio...

Finally, back to Battletech...

Image

These guys were a "rush job", finished up in a single night. They are my 2nd Lyran force, a militia unit, I call the
"GPM" or "Generic Planetary Militia. Since they are a poorer quality militia force, I wanted to make their mechs
look like they are in a bit of a disrepair state. The plan to take all the secondary mechs that I do not plan to use
heavily out each Alpha Strike box I buy, and paint them up as part of this GPM unit.

From here, I've still got the rest of the German Grenadiers from the open fire box set to finish up, and I also dug
all my Italian stuff out of my case and placed them on the desk as well. At the time of writing this, these are ALL
the models I currently own that need painting, so really the list is small. I'm hoping to really bust my butt and sling
some paint on everything in the coming weeks so I can have a nice clear desk for when my AVP and KDM stuff arrives...

Until next time, thanks for viewing!

So, a little while ago, my kickstarter pledge from Kingdom Death Monster arrived, and I've been doing a bit of work on that stuff...

Image

The first monster in KDM that the survivors face is the White Lion, so I started with him. KDM as a whole is very dark and very mature
as far as content goes, so I tried to take what would normally be a pretty normal looking lion and really try to make him terrifying...
hence, why I went with all the gore, I wanted him to look like he's really been gorging himself on fallen survivors!


Next up, are my 6 treasure tokens for Frostgrave...

Image

For these, I really wanted to create a kind of individual narrative within each token, while keeping a kind of overarching theme. I wanted the
treasure tokens be more magical in nature, and not just a pile of gold and jewels. Each one carries the same blue, cold colors throughout,
as well as the chests, boxes, and other stuff all feature the same little "wizard symbol" to tie them all together as part of a collection. I picked
up the frostgrave book, played a few games, but since my KDM stuff has come in, Frostgrave really has taken a backseat...

There you have it! Next time, I'm sure I'll have more finished KDM stuff to show. The whole scope of the game is HUGE, and will definitely
take a good chunk of time to complete, or to get to the point where I feel I have enough stuff done to set it all aside without feeling guilty for
not fully completing EVERY model!

Until next time,
-WuhSawBe-

Still pluggin' away at the Kingdom Death Monster stuff. One thing I've noticed is that in general, they seem paint
up pretty quickly, and even with minimalist of effort like I have been doing, seem to produce some pretty nice results...


Image

First up, are the 4 starting survivors. Essentially, they wake up naked, in an area of eternal darkness, the ground littered
with these stone faces... only to be ambushed by the White Lion! The scrabble around around and find a shard
of one of the faces to wield as a dagger to defend themselves. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out overall.
There is a few issues with some gaps, and I did my best to fill, however it come out looking a bit rough in some spots.
I think the seams may be the lesser of the two evils, so I don't think I'll try and fill in the seams moving forward.
(my eye is more likely to ignore a seam, than it would a rough patch of green stuff)


Next is the Screaming Antelope...

Image

Image

I looked to his artwork to inspire his design. All in all, he was done start-to-finish in an hour! This brings to the point
that all of these models seem to paint quickly, and even with the minimalist of effort, seem to turn out pretty nicely imo!


Last but not least, is the Butcher...

Image

Image

This dude is pretty wicked! My back of the model is a big cape of hair and fur, and stuck within it are lanterns (representing
the souls, I'm speculating) of his victims. I chose to have them lit (i.e. survivors have not died) and in his art he can be
seen peeling off the faces of survivors and wrapping them around the lanterns on his back. (one can be seen from his
belt too) I started out with basic silver armor, but then I didn't like it, so I tried a wash of red, which turned out pink. It
would have been hard for him to look menacing in pink armor, so I tried to dirty it up, and scale it back to red. All in all,
I'm pretty pleased, and like I said, he seems pretty brutal looking imo....


... and there you have it, more KDM Hobby progress! Ive got a few monsters left on my desk, then I'll have to figure what to
do about starting the survivors, if I want to just mix and glue, take the time to magnetize, or what. I'm also getting a bit side tracked
by Frostgrave, but hopefully I can get back to finishing up my desk projects and back into historical gaming mode!

Until next time,
-WuhSawBe-

Finished up The Watcher from KDM. I wanted to give him a bit of a "painterly look", as I often do with a lot of models.
I decided I would also go with more of a brown rags look as well. Pretty pleased with him overall...

I also tried my hand at some terrain making, which did NOT go over well. I'm giving up on scratch building stuff, and will
probably just be buying terrain from now on... including some F.A.T. Mats for gaming on from Frontline Gaming. First though,
I may as well focus on getting two armies done for a game first, after all, no sense building up a table until I can atleast provide
two armies to fight against each other...

Until Next time,
-WuhSawBe-

lots of hobby progress in the last week or so! I'll start out with the KDM stuff...

Image

First up is "The Hand". I basically copied his outlandish colors from the concept art I had seen. I also made
the "brain" on the model look gory to fit in with the overall theme of the of rest of the monsters. Story wise,
I know nothing about him, as I didn't want to spoil anything for myself in game...


Image

Next is the "King's Man", another monster I know nothing about! Honestly, he's the "cleanest" and least
scariest of the monsters, so I'm wondering what his story is, if he's one of those "how do you react to meeting him"
parts in the game's story. Friend, or foe? As with the Hand, I copied his scheme from concept art...


Image

Finally, the Phoenix... and he's HUGE! Yeah, I don't know how I'm gonna transport him, as I do not have any
battlefoam in his size. (I guess I could buy some, just seems a waste of 6 inches in my case for 1 model) For
him, I deviated from what little art I had seen of him. I wanted him more of an orangish-brown than a straight up
orange, but I did go a bit heavy in the orange on some feather spots, especially at the ends. I also decided to go
with a more dead looking, grey color to the skin, and I'm really happy with how the gray parts turned out, especially
the beak. Finally, one of the nasty parts of the model (it is KDM after all) was that they actually sculpted a butthole,
complete with hands clawing out, and I figured what better way to highlight the nastiness, than with some bird poo!

Image

... and THAT, finished up all the monsters from the core box. Ive still got TONS of survivors left on sprues to finish
up, but I think I'm going to be doing those just as a go along. My plan is to use rare earth magnets to make the
parts are interchangeable. It will be a lot of work, which is why I'm in no rush....

Next up, some progress on Frostgrave...

Image

First up, is my Pathfinder Goblin from reaper minis. I've decided to combine Frostgrave with my love of the
Pathfinder RPG setting, and thus, the idea behind a Snow Goblin Warband was born! This is going to be my
Wizard, and I'm planning to go the elementalist route, since goblins are known to want to blow stuff up!


Image

Next is my Snow Goblin Apprentice. She is a reaper bones model, and is actually the 2nd one of her, as I
ruined the first one by priming it! (lesson learned) It is a strange material, and doesn't clean up well, so
it is a bit rougher than usual, but I dont mind...


Image

Finally, I've got a set of living statues for the "Living Museum" scenario. These guys are from one of the
starter boxes from Freeblades. They came out much darker in the picture, than they did in real life. All
in all, I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out, given that they were basically made out of spare parts...


... and there you have it! I recently went half-in on an already cheap Age of Sigmar box, and received the
all the Khorne models in there for $37. Pretty cheap for GW models! I really want to see what all the internet
fuss is over AOS. So, I'll be working on those. I also need to pick up the rest of my Goblin Warband for
Frostgrave, and there is still the matter of those Italians sitting on my painting desk....

Until next time, BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!

A bit of Age of Sigmar hobby progress...

Image

Image

Up first is my Khorgorath in all his GORY-glory! It really was a fun model to build and paint up! I did have
a few of the smaller, fiddly-bits break off, but that's ok, as it will add some diversity to the model should I
ever decide to buy a 2nd one. I was also not a fan of the original "bog red monster" look, so I painted him
up in more fleshy tones...

Next is my Khorne Lord...

Image

Image

I decided my Khorne Lord needed a name, and the almighty Khorne has dubbed him... Carrl! (His pet's
name is Tehm) So yes, Khorne Lord Carrl, and Flesh-hound Tehm! I really liked the model overall and
am pretty pleased with how he turned out. I like to think (perhaps to too much ego) that I have a distinct,
unique, "painterly" style to my painting, and I think he definitely shows that.

So yeah, there you have it! More bloody Khorne models are down the pipe...

Blood & Skulls!

Progress!

Image

I finished up the Warriors and Bloodstoker and bloodsecrator from the AoS starter box. I'm down to the just
reavers, which I'm currently working on.


Image
Image

I also did a bit of work of my FoW Italians, and finished up the 90/53's and ammo carriers. I'm still trying to
work out the best way to use weathering powders.

Until next time,

Finished up the rest of my Pathfinder Snow Goblin Warband for Frostgrave. My next step for Frostgrave
is to get a good table set up and some new terrain for it. Maybe, one day, I can actually PLAY SOMETHING!

From here, Ive gone back to working on my AOS stuff. I also got an xbox one (ID: WuhSawBe) and have
been playing a ton of Halo and Star Wars... which has gotten in the way of hobby progress for sure. I'm
trying really hard to finish up my projects before starting a new one, which is hard, as Halo Fleet Battles,
Team Yankee, and a new Rus army for Saga are definitely tugging at me...

Unless I can put down the Xbox Controller, this may be my last hobby update for 2015. Thanks for
all the views and kind words!

Until Next time,
-WuhSawBe-

Managed to finish up one final project for the year... the last part of my Khorne AoS models, the
20x Bloodreavers. I did them rather quickly, but they still took a lot more time than I was expecting.

That means, the only things on my painting desk, and the only unpainted models I own are the
2 stands of Italian infantry, and the HQ choices. With only a few days left in 2015, there is no
way I can get them finished before the new year, (That, and I've discovered that I cannot stand
painting 15mm infantry! So dull!)
