Tournament Pics

Here are some pictures of my all infantry list fighting in an ITC tournament. I didn’t do very well because I kept running out of time (used chess clocks). My record was 0 wins, 2 losses, and a tie.  The army plays well and has a lot of synergy. I think with some practice I can play faster. Also I haven’t played an 8th edition game in a while. I kept forgetting to utilize some of my stratagems. If anyone knows a good tactics website to ensure I am maximizing this army’s potential, please let me know.

Merry Christmas Indeed!

This Christmas, Santa brought me something that I have wanted for many years. I finally got the Rorke’ Drift set with Horns of the Buffalo expansion from Warlord Games. This has been a dream of mine to complete my Praetorians. I couldn’t wait to assemble the buildings and set it up. It has about a 3’x5’ footprint so would dominate most gaming tables.

I think it could work for playing the Glazer’s Creek scenario since the Orks come in from the edges and that would leave 12” around the perimeter.  Super excited to get it painted up.

Here are some pictures to see how it scales with the Praetorians.

Right on track!!

Somehow I managed to do it. My entire 2000 point footslogger army is completely painted. Here are some updated pictures.

They are not 100% complete but I am on track to have them done by Christmas. I only need to dullcoat varnish them and add static grass to the bases. As they are, the army is completely ready to put on the tabletop.

Once I am done the final touches I will do an entire army shot including my tanks and some additional elites choices. The full army will be participating in Apocalypticon at the Miniwargaming Bunker this April. Check out information here: Apocalypticon

I will be documenting that event in this blog. I hope you all will enjoy.

Nearly There

I am way behind my goal but I was able to get some more painting in. At this point my 2000 point all infantry is completely base coated. Now on to basing and washing. If all goes well I will have it complete by the end of next week. My new goal is to have everything done including dull coat by Christmas.
