Dino Progress

So the lizardmen are coming along. The archers are ready to be based, I just need to work out the number per base and if I want to do anything special.

I need to add in the waterfall, paint the base and add in some vegetation and the brachiosaurus is done.

I decided to two ankylosaurus per base, just need to do the second layer of flock and the paint and add vegetation and that will finish them up.

Triceratops are undecided upon the number per base but they are going on the 40mm x 40mm base, in either a pair formation with a few hand weapons or as a single beast flanked on both sides by spear toting lizards.

I have the shields on a handful of hand weapon lizards and their eyes and bases to paint and then it is time to base them all. I will have 3 bases of 40x40 and then the rest will go on 20x20 bases. I will probably have to order more bases before I start on my last batch of spears. Then I have the command models and 4 triceratops left to paint. I would like to order another brachiosaurus and 4 more triceratops as well as some flyer support.

I will probably wait for the ratmen for my next 6mm fantasy army since the Wildland Alliance didn't quite fit the scale I wanted. I was hoping to use the rhinos as ogres or trolls and the elephants as a step up from them. Unfortunately the rhinos look rather squat and about the size of the simian troops and smaller than the gorillas, they couldn't be swapped with the ogre cavalry so I could have rhinos on rhinos as my core block of troops. I might pick up a pack of elephants just for the command model but it will be far down the list of projects now.

So I can see the end of what I currently have for 6mm and the next project looks like it will be space frogs or WW2 Italian tanks depending on when I finish and companies release timelines.

Kid's First Go

So my daughter has been joining me for some of my painting sessions and she has been having a blast. Here is what she did over the last few sessions.

She has been working on loading the brush and having fun, something I loose sight of sometimes.

10x10 February Progress

Another month down and time to tally the count, no pictures this time around.

Doomtown Reloaded: 10

So, two months in and I have the plays for Doomtown finished, I will keep track just to see how many plays I get in over the year but only 7 of these plays are coming off of the count. Tried out a new abomination build out of Fourth Ring and it went pretty rough: I have some ideas to try and fix it but hopefully the new home might help because I don't have much faith in it being a tournament caliber build right now.

Terra Mystica: 2

Another two plays down, the missus won both pretty handily. Still our score have been declining steadily, something for me to try and figure out.

Founding Fathers: 1

I love this game, so much fun if you enjoy light banter and the continental congress.

Saint Petersburg: 1

Solid econ engine allowed me to control the aristocrats the other side had access to buying. This is one of the games that things just fell right when I had the first option.

So that bring the total up to 17 out of 100 plays so far this year.
