The Court of the Crimson King

Like a shrieking Bayeux tapestry bitch.

Just some WIPs of the new terrain I’m working on - this time, it’s a waterside tavern. I liked the idea that the guy who built it found a spot with an old round watchtower on it, and just built the pub around the tower.

This is the ground floor, which is going to be the main drinking room of the tavern along with the tower room which is going to be used to store all of the booze barrels.

So here’s a few shots of the tavern, and then a table I’ve been working on with some ale flagons made of plasticard tube. These were added as an afterthought so I haven’t painted them yet. The Satyxis captain seems to be about to smash the table up though…

Next up, a few shots of the bar which is going to be put into the tavern near to the tower room. Added a small barrel with a tap on it to this. And finally one of the Renedra barrels I’m going to be filling the tower room with.

Once the ground floor’s done I’m gonna start working on the next storey, which will have a few rooms for rent as well as the Landlord’s room in the tower.

Rackham Confrontation

Jeez, when I see the prices that some of the old metal Confrontation minis go for on eBay I feel sort of dumb for selling mosta mine for as cheap as I did! :( Thank god I still have all of my old Kelt Sessairs (which I am using for Fanticide if Luke and I ever play the damn game again) and a bunch of others!

In other news, I’m not totally slacking off - working on a new building, of which the ground floor was nearly finished and painted before I realised that I hadn’t added any bloody stairs to the inside. ¬_¬

Pics of the downstairs to follow later tonight, I reckon!

O captain! My captain!

Just a little update, chaps, to the building from my recent post! thought it was missing something, so here’s a new sign I’ve added to the wall at the front on the ground floor. Tried to make it look like an old fashioned ‘Victorian’ style sign ‘Auldale - Importers of Fine Goods &c.’

New terrain!

I’ve been working on something for a while, and after several weeks of hard graft, it’s done! And so without further ado, have some photos!

So here it is - a new house for use in many wargames. Mostly Warmachine and Malifaux etc. When I started planning this building, I decided that I’d like it to be something like a shop rather than a house, the kind you’d see where they have a door on the top floor with a winch above it for pulling goods up from the street below (we actually have a house like this around the corner from us). So the bottom floor would be the shop/office, the first floor would be the warehouse or storage area, and then I thought it would be cool to have the loft space designated as the owner’s private rooms (bedrooms or such) with a little balcony to watch the goings on of the town.

The whole thing is made from a lot of foamcore and card from cereal boxes etc. Bottom floor is double-thickness to add some rigidity, due to the fact that I cut off the outer layer of foamcore card to sculpt the stones. Most of the ‘plaster’ of the building is done with lightweight filler. The roof was a pain - all little squares of card glued on with PVA (white glue) - and took three days to complete.

In order to show what kind of building it is, I also built several little furniture pieces to go in there. A desk and chair, and also a bookcase/shelf unit that the boss keeps all of his business accounts on. These were made from lolly sticks and matchsticks, as are the external stairs which I’m really proud of! The final details were a winch (made using instructions found here), and a couple of boxes (from here).

And there we have it! I think a nice little terrain piece that’s detailed enough to be interesting, but not so full of stuff to be a pain for gaming over. Hope you all like it!

Hullo hullo! Some more Cryx goodness/evilness for you all - a Machine Wraith (for the copious and hopefully hilarious possession of enemy Warjacks), and a trio of Scrap Thralls (because I just like the look of them). I’ve got a unit of Satyxis Raiders built and undercoated sitting on my table, too, but I got distracted with scenery building :P So may be a while before I get those done.

Until next time!

I just… what the actual fuck.

What what! Here I am again with the rest of the current Cryx army, namely a little Crew of Revenants, because how can you be a Pirate Queen without a crew to do all the dirty work? At the top is the Quartermaster (he’s the big guy) and the diver guy, who for some reason always reminds me of Major Tom from the Venture Bros). Then we’ve got the four current crew members, all glowing eyes and huge cutlasses.

Coming soon, more things!

Starting a new project is always pretty cool, and here’s my latest! As mentioned in a previous post, I’ve started a Cryx army for Warmahordes, and here’s the first few pieces. The core of the battlegroup so far, I suppose.

Happily, I managed to calm my excitement enough that I fully finished painting all my Khador minis before moving on to these. Pics of the full Khador army will be coming soon!

So on to the army so far - my Warcaster is eSkarre, or to give her her full title, Skarre: Queen of the Broken Coast. She’s backed up with two Defilers for some ranged support, and also a Seether Helljack because frankly he’s a badass! High MAT, a ton of attacks, and with some support from Skarre’s spells he can brawl with the best of ‘em. Plus, free Focus and being able to charge about for free is so nice!

These are supported by a unit of 6 (so far) Revenant Crew of the Atramentous which I am halfway through painting as of now.

I’ve played only one game with them so far, against DC’s recently finished Retribution army, and they lost, but not before Seether killed two light jacks and Skarre dealt some 30-odd damage to another in one hit. It was an act of desperation, that paid off, but then she got clobbered by a heavy :(

Anyhow, the total is a nice little 19 point army, so I’d like to get a 1-pointer in there. I’ve got Rheinholdt the Gobber Speculator in backup (even though I know Cryx can’t technically use him, but we’re all happy to muck around a little bit), but I’d like to get a proper Cryx 1 pointer in. The question is: Machine Wraith, or Necrotech?
