Intermountain Cup

The Intermountain Cup is a tournament that determines which of the game stores in Utah and Idaho has the best gamer's. It is being held at my local game store this year so I put my name on the alternates list. This will be my first 50 points tournament so there will be a flurry of activity this week since I need to finish assembling my Judicator to make it up to 50 points.

Wish me luck!!

February Challenge Model

The awesome guys over at have an awesome challenge system. The challenge rules change every month and are designed to make painter's think about and stretch their skills. All the painter's post their WIP photos and the community is able to give suggestions and feedback during the whole process. This makes for some fun changes mid-model.

More pics after the break!

Judicator Base WIP

As I've stated before, the Judicator deserves more than just a piece of plastic to stride to war on. After the break you can see the evolution of the base so far.

Basing work

I have seen a lot of awesome figs recently that have been made better by their bases. So i am concentrating a little more on the bases for my figs than i have in the past. 

As a test base to be able to use all of the new techniques and materials i have picked up i decided to do a wreck marker for my Warmachine army. Technically it's a base and it isn't supposed to look pretty so i figured i couldn't screw it up too much. Here is what i came out with.

I used some old citadel basing bits i had laying around, sprue bits, pieces of the middle of the base that I cut out, some crystals i made myself, and a new textured paste that i picked up at a local art shop for sand and snow effects. All in all not a horrible wreck marker.

I've also been working on putting together the colossal for my Protectorate army. I decided a model that big and obviously going to be a centerpiece whether you want it to be or not deserves more than a plain round base with some flock. So I've started my biggest (in every sense of the word) basing project to date.
