It’s a, a violent playground

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

Won’t you come and join us in our playground?
It’s a, a violent playground
Such a, a violent playground

Wanted some more semi-creepy/postapoc terraint so made a playground out of stuff from  Sarissa precision, 4ground and ice cream sticks.

It’s all mounted on a base with the same kind of Zuzzy mat that the rest of my board has, so hopefully it blends in while still having some coherency.

Maximilian McAllistei – Chaos lord from the Warzone

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Alright, this is not a new model, but I never got around to snapping any pictures of him, and since I hadn’t tried out my Foldio lightbox yet, this was a golden opportunity!

Maximilian McAllistei is my Warhammer 40´000 Chaos space marine lord for my Legion of Discord army. He rides around on his daemonic horse and flames things, ideally.

The model is more or less completely scratch built from different kits and I made him as a tribute to the Mutant Chronicles/Warzone Venusian Marshal pictured below, since they’re awesome. The passive, menacing look just tickles me the right way.

Back when I first started to build the model, Warzone was an old, mostly forgotten, miniature game with old ugly sculpts, so doing something like this really felt like a fun way to honor it – So it was with equal bits of despair and joy I found out there were going to be a Warzone kickstarter to reboot the game. On the plus side, it’s great. I mean, I love the universe. On the downside it sort of punctured my inspiration for my chaos army, since the theme was pretty much a Bauhaus Venusian Rangers color sheme (bone white and blues) mixed with spikes and demons. At the moment, I’m not sure where I’ll go with my chaos army, but for now I think it’ll have to take a bit of hiatus. I have other models to paint anyways!

The models main components are a Warhammer Fantasy Daemonic steed, a chaos space marine with a chaos tank commander helmet, Chaos Possessed bits, a mechanical legs and a flamer made out of a bolter, a piano wire and Chaos tank sprue demonic head. The cloak and hood was green stuffed. Not pictured is an axe and a sword and some other weapons that’ve been magnetized so that it can go on the side of the horse. Because I like magnets.

And for those interested, gamewise he mostly rolls around as such:

Chaos Lord

  • Veterans of the long war
  • Mark of Slaanesh
  • Steed of Slaanesh
  • Burning Brand of Skalathrax
  • Sigil fo corruption
  • Lightning claw (Not pictured.. maybe they’re retractable!)

So he comes in from nowhere and flames people, and then generally gets shot down.

Mats, mats, more mats. Zuzzy mats, at that.

A while ago I undertook on a great big olé journey to host a Malifaux tournament at PewPewCon –  PewPewFaux (of course). Anyways, in order for this to come true, I needed gaming tables!  At the local club there’s a bunch of 6×4′ tables, but the 3×3′ that Malifaux use are sorely lacking. So I set about ordering a few more Zuzzy mats, since they’re awesome. I ordered 2 3×4′ (to combine into a single 6×4 if necessary) and one 3×3′. They’re also tortoise-slow to get once you order them, so I had to order them a good 1.5 month in advance, and just received them last week, 1 week before the convention. So speed-painting 33 square feet of gaming table it is!

Just like with the other mat I started with a grey roller-drybrush and afterwards picked out the details (tree trunks).

At this stage they look a bit like doodies on the mat. Not awesome…yet!

After this, I sprayed from a distance red and brown spots to break the mats up. Afterwards a gave it a wash of the “baby-poo wash” from last post. Yeah, a lot of poo-stuff this post.

Top two have been washed and dried at this stage, bottom one no wash.

Some more WIP pictures. Nothing much to say, really.

Anyways! a few days work and they’re all ready for the tournament this weekend.

Wrapped up and good to go.

Snowflakes keep falling on my head…

To keep up with the winter theme of my board, I finished up some winterifying (totally a real word) of my terrain.

 

First up is a Garden of Morr and second is the houses I’ve been building lately.

All my houses snowified! Sarissa, Sarissa, Litko and 4ground

 

Ended up pretty swell, I think. I mean, it’s snow. On terrain. Snow terrain. Thematically I think they blend together better with the common snow aspect. Before, the 4ground ( the house in the foreground..hur hur) building looked a bit out of place compared to the other houses. Now though, it feels better.

Also, I just realized I never did a “full spread” on the residence house (big one in the middle). I’ll maybe do it at some point. I’ve learned from my mistakes that I won’t promise any updates, because if I do, they never happen.

 

Anyways.

 

Freeze in hell, Batman!

Graveyard project

Semi-finished graveyard! Or at least the beginning of it with some nice tomb stones.

Finished graveyard

Graveyard all done!

It’s the first peace of my to-be wintery gothicy horrible..-y graveyard board. Original idea was to have a “Gotham city cemetary” feel to it – and it always snows in Gotham city cemetaries, for some reason. It ended up with a more frosted/tundraish look than christmasy, since I wanted to include some grass and mud and such. It was probably 4 years since I last produced a peace of terrain, so I’m still trying to get the hang of how to do it properly, but I’m satisfied with the outcome.
