Reaper Assassin

Ahoy! I got this model to use as a D&D fig and enter a Reaper painting contest. The model's pretty awesome-sauce, but I wasn't too satisfied with my paint job. It's not bad, but I've done much better. Maybe it had something to do with me painting most of it the day of and the day before it was due. Anyway, our adventure takes place in the frozen north, hence the frosty color scheme.

Absylonia, Terror of Everblight

I just painted this for a gift exchange, so, although I do have one, this one isn't it. I played her just last week and she is phrygian amazing! I had her, 3 heavy beasts, a shredder, a couple shepherds, and a forsaken. I put an upkeep on each of my heavies and upkept them for free because Absylonia's Awesome-Sauce! Next turn I killed one of his 'jacks and hurt the other one pretty badly and killed some of his unit. The turn after that, my beasts weren't in too great of shape, but that was okay because I used my feat and completely healed them. It was then that my opponent put on his incredulous face and gave up. Awesome-Sauce! Anyway, she's pretty cool for a blighted abomination that spontaneously mutates herself and her beasts.

Scrappa Sorehead

I painted this dude for a friend and entered it in a painting contest some time ago. The model's pretty Awesome-Sauce. After all, it's hard to beat a mad goblin on a pogo stick. He turned out rather well. I haven't been very consistent in my blogging lately. I have 4 or 5 models that I haven't posted yet. I don't even have pictures for many of them. I should paint and blog. Argh.!?

Krueger, the Stormwrath

I recently painted this angry old man and entered him into a painting contest. I ended up getting first and last place (Krueger got last and Vlad got first). I did this one for free, since I was going to enter him into the contest, and since the guy that had me paint him let me use his truck to transport certain furniture items. Anyway, if I did all of my paint jobs for free, I would probably get more business. Just a thought. One that I probably won't listen to. Well, that's what kappens.

Vladamir, the Dark Champion

So, I just painted Epic Vlad for Adam. He's pretty Awesome-Sauce, more so than normal Vlad, I'd say. I like my paint job, as well as the sculpt, more. His sword is a lot more glowy and it reflects onto his hair and armor and stuff like that. Anyway, I have this out of the way now, so I can focus on my two models that I'm painting for competitions, one for a local contest run by Paul and Dallas, and the other the No Quarter Challenge.

I Don't Know What to Call This Post

Adam and I have decided to play a string of games with an underlying storyline, creating special rules and scenarios to fit, and blog about them, writing mainly in story format. So, here is my first attempt:

Points: 350

My list:

Adam's list:

The thing that was once Ogrun marched across the tundra, still reveling in the slaughter of the weakling Menite scout party. Thagrosh had thought everyone dead, but an anxious sensation from the mind of Typhon told him otherwise, and he knew to trust the beast's senses above his own eyes. He had planned to rejoin Lylyth and Vayl soon, but where there were scouts, there was likely a larger force waiting for their information, and The Messiah's bloodlust was far from sated.
A few minutes later, he spotted two warjacks led by a diminutive female caster with a large hammer. One of the 'jacks had a massive ice axe in one hand and Thagrosh knew it from past battles to be Sorscha's pet, Beast. Thagrosh imparted to his Angelius, as yet unseen by the enemy warband, to wait behind the small copse of trees to his right, as he and Typhon marched around to the left to meet them head-on.
Thagrosh sensed a magical energy eminating from the warcaster before he saw the storm erupt from her outstreched hand. He braced himself, but was nonetheless brought to his knees by the tempest, as was his three-headed monstrosity. He saw the unidentified 'jack, probably a Juggernaut, move out to his right, and realized it's mistake immediately. Now! he mentally screamed to his assassin lurking in the shadow of the woods. The Angelius shot out of the trees and impaled the Juggernaut's arm, rendering it useless. Thagrosh saw and felt it die as Beast-09 ran to it and cut it in half, but he wasn't done with the beast yet. "Rise," he commanded the dead thing, and to the visible astonishment of Sorcha, it did, the seemingly dead body mending even as it got up and flew toward its master.
The distraction, however, cost Thagrosh dearly. He look to his left and saw Sorscha standing not ten feet from him. How did she slip past Typhon?! His question was answered as he looked to the dreaded beast, now covered in a thick layer of ice. He tried to rush toward the enemy caster, but was stopped dead in his tracks as he, too, was rapidly frozen.
Helpless, Thagrosh could only look on as Beast came up and rammed Typhon with the full force of its body. The three-headed dragon was severely wounded, as was the Angelius, crushed under Typhon's might bulk. Beast ended the might dragon with his frozen axe just before the Juggernaut slammed into Beast and sent him careening toward Thagrosh himself, but the big 'jack fell short and Thagrosh was unharmed. Sorscha then appeared behind the Angelius and finished it off.
Enough, I will end this myself, thought the dragon-Ogrun monstrosity, quickly thawing as he moved around the downed Beast and engaged Sorscha.
" I am Everblight. You cannot escape me!" he roared at the woman as he brought the Rapture, his massive double-bladed sword, to bear. The blade came down and cut deep into her shoulder. Thagrosh raised it again for a killing blow, a look of pure ecstacy on his face at the thought of cleaving this puny human in half. The sword came down, but hit nothing but air. The warlock half turned, a confused expression on his face, but then a heavy blow landed on his head and he knew no more.

Escalation Tournament: Week 1

I didn't plan on playing two games in the first week at all, but we did, since the 350 should only take half an hour or so. Anyway, I won my first game, largely because I was on the board with a big line of forests diagonally across the board. Here's what kappened: I was playing Bryan (Cygnar). We both deployed. First turn: we both advanced toward the middle of the board. Second turn: Bryan peeks Thorn out from behind the forest, uses him as an arc node to hit one of my shredders and not really do anything, I charge Thorn through the forest with one of my shredders and move the rest of my models into the forest. Third turn: he kills the shredder and can't really do anything else because I'm hiding in the forest and shooting him just like an Everblight son-of-a-crapper :) I move my seraph out of the forest to get a shot at Stryker and promptly get counter-charged by Ol' Rowdy. My seraph is a flying bloody pulp now, but Rowdy is in charge range of my carnivean and gets ripped apart (hooray for big draconic monstrocities!). Fourth turn: nothing really kappens. Bryan kills a shredder then feats and I can't do anything, time is called and I win by victory points.

Second game, I faced off against Mike O'donnell (Cryx). We both deployed and he went first. I have a cankerworm nearly in my face that I'm scared to death of.
We both kind of moved up a little, he moved Deneghra and all of his 'jacks over to my left and feated. I then couldn't really do anything and ended up killing the cankerworm and 1 or 2 bile thralls. Next turn, he shoots Lylyth with his pistol wraith, kills my seraph, which was engaging his nightmare, charges Lylyth with said nightmare, and beats her face in.

Shepherds are Awesome-Sauce! They're wee little elf women and die easily, like most of my army, but the accelerate beast healing, extend my control area, make my beasts frenzy, and control said frenzying beasts. This is one of my best paint jobs, second only, perhaps, to Vayl. Well, only 2 solos, 1 unit, and 2 UAs to go!


These are my lesser warbeasts. Everblight is awesome-sauce in that it has warbeasts that cost 1/3 the points of other factions' cheapest beasts. These rabid little monsters run about the field eating things, and eating each other if they frenzy. 'Twas Paul who convinced me to paint them different colors. You may have noticed that one is painted like my Typhon. Typhon has a piece of athanc in him, and thus, I think, could (and should) spawn a beast. That would be Awesome-Sauce! It could be our next character beast. All of my tourament beasts are painted


This is one of my light warbeasts, and one of my first models. I've had it for two and a half years, now, and have finally finished painting it. I spent a lot of time simply experimenting of color schemes for the wings. The seraph is a ranged warbeast and very awesome-sauce. I am now one step closer to my goal of a fully-painted tournament army.

Tournament Painting

So, I've decided to have my entire army painted for the upcoming tournament on the 24th. This is a lot of stuff to paint in two weeks, though I won't actually need some of it until the second and third weeks of the tournament. As my list stands right now, I have to paint 1 light warbeast, 3 lesser warbeasts, 3 solos, 1 unit, and 2 unit attachments, which I don't have yet and thus they are not shown in the picture. The beasts are almost done, so they shouldn't take long. Everything else I don't need until week three, except for 1 shephard, which I need on week 2. As I said, this is a lot of painting, but it will be awesome-sauce when I win the tournament with a fully-painted army.

Vlad-My First Commission

I finally painted something for someone. This is Vladamir, Dark Prince of Umbrey, a warcaster for Khador. Painting a Warmachine model was somewhat different, what with the massive power armor and what-not, but, all-in-all, it really wasn't that hard and I did about as good a job as I have on any of my own models. I ended up spending twice what I earned painting this guy on paints to paint him with. That's okay, though. I have a larger paint selection now. With any luck, I'll be able to paint more stuff for people, so having lots of paint is good.

Vladamir, Dark Prince of Awesome Sauce

I finally picked up my character warbeast, Typhon. Most beasts are non-unique, and you can have as many of them as you want in an army, or you can have a certain number per warlock. Character warbeast are, obviously, characters, therefore you can only have one in any army. Let me divulge a small portion of storyline so that you might better understand my seemingly strange color scheme. In the world of hoardes, dragons have stones called athancs inside of them that contain their life force. The legion of Everblight is lead by a dragon, ironically named Everblight. Everblight was destroyed long ago, but his athanc was found by an ogrun named Thagrosh (whom you might could see in a later post, if I ever get around to painting him). Thagrosh and the rest of my warlocks now each have a shard of Everblights athanc in their hearts. Anyway, later on, the Legion goes and kills itself a dragon. Thaggy yoinks the athanc of this other dragon, named Pyromalfic, and consumes it. Thagrosh later goes through a transformation and becomes a large draconic monster, during which all of his flesh peels off and he rips the athanc out of his chest and cuts a tiny portion off, which falls into the big pool of blood and skin at his feet. Part of this mass of flesh rejoins Thagrosh's body, but the rest becomes Typhon. So, Typhon not only has a piece of Everblight's athanc, but also Pyromalfic's. Thus, he still retains much of the Everblight blue theme that I have with the rest of my beasts, but also has a Pyromalficish element introduced.
Typhon was a beast (no pun intended) to assemble and paint, what with all of his long necks and two-piece heads, and all of his limbs all convoluted in by his underside, but, after many days of painting into the wee hours of the morning, I finally finished him.He is an awesome-sauce model. I haven't played with him yet, nor have I played with Epic Lylyth, but I really want to. The only disappointment I have with Typhon is his 4 Fury. Everblight has yet to get a 5-Fury model, but that's okay, and I really shouldn't be complaining after all of the other awesome-sauce stuff we've gotten.
