Warhammer Battle Brothers 2013 (picture heavy)

This weekend myself and Klepto Elliot visited Warhammer World to take part in the Battle Brothers Warhammer tournament. We went last year with our Ogres and Orcs, winning two out of our five games, and this year set our target on 3 wins.
Little did we know that after five excellent games we would have won every game and finished in fifth overall out of fifty teams.
Below is all the pictures I took during our visit.... Enjoy....
The High Elves, including top tier phoenix, we thought we were going to play first game, but due to a mix up we were on the wrong table

Well look at me two posts in one week.......

It's been a busy evening hobby wise, as I mentioned in my previous post the club has decided to look at the scenery we have also to look at new stuff, so to the reason why the post.....
As a club we have been using 4Ground for Flames of War/Battlegroup, Bolt Action and of course Deadmans Hand (DMH). As a club we finally decided to add to DMH with the release of the new Undertakers (I've been wanting more for some time, the club just needed convincing).
Look what turned up on my doorstep this evening just as I got home.....

Now after a few hours work (I say work but I enjoy the building part), first the gallows and carts.
Also the yard panel fence without the gates, those are still to be built.
Over the rest of the weekend I have 1. The Undertakers, 2. The Sheriffs Office  3. Yard Panel Fencing with Gates.......should all be done by Sunday evening ready for DMH Wednesday night.

Paint Station.......

Well it's that time again, my painting head is back on and I must admit I've missed it. Sitting at my desk listening to tunes and painting models.....why don't I do it more often.

Anyway down to business, there is way to much stuff for me to say what I need to do so I'll simplify it. We've been having several games of WFB doubles to get Klepto and Binx ready for the doubles this weekend @GW HO, so Lordy and I have been trying out several different armies, I've used my Skaven & Orcs which is what brings out the below pic of finished models.

I've had these 3 Heresy Miniatures Trolls for several years and not really done much with them which is daft seeing as they are easy to paint, Wanted to get something under my belt and finished to put on here rather than just WIP stuff (I have way to much of that).

Now on to the WIP stuff, I've been collecting my Crimson Fists marines since....ummm....errr....well lets just say it's been a long time. The old codex introduced the new Vet squads of Sternguard and Vanguard, with that I decided to make my own Sternguard.

First 5 are table top ready, they just need the blue to be highlighted.

Second 5 are ready for detail highlights & basing ready for the table top.

Finally I got the standard bearer and apothecary up to TTS, to match the rest of the command squad.

Well that's me done for now, I'll be busy over the next few months as the club have decided we need to sort out the scenery, looking at repairs/redo's and new stuff, so you'll see a few posts from me as I stuck my hand up for the building of bits (can't paint scenery for toffee).

Light Panzer Company - Early War

Dave has a Flames of War tournament at Warfare, Reading.  He has been buying figures from eBay as if he has been possessed.  Not much of a painter he asked if I could add some decals to make unit identification easier.  Of course, happy to. 

The box of tanks had some ok models and some dreadful models and whilst you can't polish a turd you can roll it in glitter.  That's what I though putting decals on some of the tanks would be, rolling them in glitter.  However once I had a good look through the box of tanks I found that I could tart up some of the tanks and would only have to repaint a few of the glittery turds to produce an acceptable standard.

Here they are...

Stuka zu Fuss and Flammpanzerwagen

After a few months break I have come back to the 28mm SS Panzergrenadier project that I have been painting for Cyrus.  Here is a work in progress picture; I have base coated, modulated and got the basic camouflage on.  Next will be pin washes and then weathering.

Once again another new model is finished before some of my older stuff.

Here is my Lizardman Bastiladon, its a darker green to the other monsters in my Lizard army, I blame all the Nurgle I've been doing recently...I'm very happy with the crystal which has come out better than I hoped it would.

Next on the paint station, the last 16 of my Skraeling...

Just a quick pondering:- Triumph and Treachery + Storm of Magic. Its doable, right?!
