WIP - Bomhowler and Co. Primered

Well, now that I've gotten a week break from painting the Blazers I will start on the next unit in my list. The Boomhowlers. Stay tuned to see my progress...


Just a basic application of primer, used my airbrush and the Valejo Surface Primer Black. Once dry I then used the same primer and a bursh to catch the areas my airbrush could not reah.

Oberon: Results

Well, I did horrible in Oberon...

I got taken out of the running early due to a noob mistake...

I should have won, but I forgot that the Old Witch got Stealth due to Prowl... So my assassination run failed...

I just concede after that...

I did win my 2 remaining games, but that early loss took its toll on my SoS...

Ah well...

Here's some pics, may be not be as clear as I hoped...


More pic after the break...

Oberon 2013: Highest Standard for Local Tournament by Far

Today marks the first day of July, and the start of the countdown to the first Oberon tournament. Its a tournement that hopes to set a bench mark of local tournaments here in the Philippines. Its has high requirments than all the past tournements, fully painted, fully based, 50 points with specialist maximum of 2 lists.

Rewards are pretty high as well, Official PP coins along with GCs for the Fortress LGS. 4000 php for the champion, 2000 php for teh second place and 1000 php for the third place.

Now I'm already qualified to join if I'm just going to bring a single list, well almost. I still need to base some of my models but that's kind of the easy part. I however want to play with two lists, and being the lazy ass bastard that I am, I plan to cheat playing two lists. I already got my Haley1, so I plan to swap her and the character solos out of my stryker1 list to get a second list.

This means that I have some work to do, so I'm starting my road to Oberon. I'll be posting updates on progress with the work. Now below is the sope of work I need to complete in 26 days.


  • Touch up the following
    • 3 Stormpods
  • Base the following:
    • 10 Sword Knights
    • 3 Stormpods
    • 1 Dismounted Laddermore
    • 1 Journeyman Warcaster
  • Primer, Paint and Base the follwing
    • Haley1
    • Runewood
    • Eyriss2
Here's to hoping I can post an update by tomorrow...

I did it again...

It seems that thsi will be a cycle so I may as well just accept it...

Work has swallowed me whole again and my hobby has been put to the side...

At least the mini-wargaming hobby, I will admit that I did play the entire ME trilogy much the displeasure of my wife...

Well I'm back for a bit, with renewed vigor n this hobby...

I won't make promises of what I can post, only that I will still post and that if I finally quit this hobby I will let everyone know...

Back from Work Trip

Okie, I;ve actually been back since last week, but when I got back my back log of work and general laziness actually killed my painting momentum.

I should be back posting by Monday Feb 11, I will start with a hot to take picture of your minis using a point and shoot. Doing that for a guy I met on the forums who has a blog and wants to get decent pic of his paint job on it.

So if you follow me, stay tuned on Monday when I come out of the gates swinging!

Tactical Talks: Balance Lists

Hello folks,

I don't know if I've ever talked about this topic, and since I have no update with regards to painting today...

What is a balanced list? How do you make one? Can Cygnar make one?

All of these will be answered after the break...

Ramblings of a Cygnarian Cat Lover: Tempest Blazers

Hello folks, no painting update today sadly. Today instead I will kick off a new series I call Ramblings of a Cygnarian Cat Lover. The series is where I talk about up coming models for Cygnar and what I think their rules will be, before they get released.

Today I will talk about the Tempest Blazers, the next Cavalry unit of Cygnar...

Painting Attempts: Stryker1 Variant - WIP

Hello, today's update will be short, just a peek at my progress with my Stryker1 variant. I got this guy for like 4 USD on sale a Miniature Market, I also find the variant's pose better than the battle box's pose. Here's what I have so far.

Painting Attempts: Squire

I feel that I need to explain why I repainted my Squire before I actually show it. It all started with a game, where JohnB decided to proxy the Hyperion to see if he should get it when it's model finally came out. In case your not aware, the Hyperion's main gun has the Critical Consume rule. This means that if rolls a critical hit, all small based non warcaster models in the 5" AoE template vanishes. No damage roll, no tough check, they just get sucked into limbo. Now in this game, he shot my warcaster with said gun. It was a critical hit, now the warcaster lived. The Squire who I admit I like to keep very close  to my caster got consumed. When I lifted him from the table to take him to the dead pile, his base fell off. Since then it was said that my Squire was truly sent to limbo. In order to reflect that I decided that since he's off his base anyway, and he was one of the first models I painted, I would repaint him. Here he is, read on to find out how I painted him just an hour.

Clash of Metal and Flesh: Tagaytay Invitationals - Part 1

No painting update today I'm afraid, instead I will talk about the first event I organized for 2013. Its called the Tagaytay invitationals, a tournament that was aimed at trying to build a closer relation to a play group that's quite far away from me and my usual play groups. If your not from the Philippines or don't know how far Quezon City is from Tagaytay, its about a 2 hour drive on a good day, on a bad day it can take 4 hours to reach. But enough of the geography lesson on more on the tournament.

Painting Attempts: Sword Knights

So I finally finished my Sword Knights. Total work time was about 10 hours. By far the fastest I've ever painted a 10 man unit, or any unit for that matter. I actually used the air brush for most of the work, so that may explain the speed. Here's an initial pic, more pics and an explanation of how I did it after the link...
