Thing a Day 2/24 - 2/28: Jump Packs and Traitor Guard

Thing a Day 2/24 - 2/28: Long Jump Packs and Traitor Guard

Here's some quick updates that are getting me back into the groove. As I mentioned last time, I am working on finishing my jump packs and getting my Assault JP troopers ready to paint.  I have achieved that first goal finally, and gotten over the 40 Jump Pack hump.  I am now back to my 10 man painting sessions and will begin tonight with my First squad and a Librarian on the side.

No Table No War Part 2

     Welcome back to the second installment. This past Friday evening we had a go at the the new table and it was AWESOME,  it will definitely see more action in the future. The modular capability is a plus and extends the life of the board, so that you don't ( no pun intended ). Another point that just occurred to me is that you can create a board that transitions. What I mean by that is you can have a desert land scape that runs into a cities of death city block or into a oasis/jungle treeline or frozen waste land. The possibilities are limitless, it's your world you decide. So with that said let''s pick up where we left off shall we..........

Thing a Day update 2/18-2/23

Howdy Folks!

I have been keeping my Thing a day, to thing-every few days or thing-a-week, which I think is probably ok as to not clutter and spam the blog.  But don't fret, I am still working on my armies!  This update straddles a weekend, so not too much happened on Saturday and Sunday.  Recent highlights after the jump.

Blog Changes: For Good and For Awesome!!

Blog Changes:  For Good and For Awesome!!

So, I've been pretty good about keeping up with my Thing A Day, If I may say so, and in my local group we've been talking about things we can do to expand our play and include narrative campaigns and other avenues for game play outside of the same old book missions.  That of course, started my wheels-a-turning.  To that end, I've been talking to my frequent opponent and friend, MikeF about campaign ideas and expanding our games, and tossing out the idea to join the blog.

Thing a Day 2/17 Me Time = Painting time

Thing a Day 2/17 Me Time = Painting time

Hello true believers! Last night, I had a rare opportunity.  The kids were away, and the Significant other was out having a girls night.  So what would a self respecting gaming nerd do?  Paint, of course!  So I did just that.  Sitting down in front of my neglected jump packs, I finished touching up the base colors and applied 30+ decals, then touched those decals up.

Thing a Day, 2/2/11 S.S.D.D.

Thing a Day, February 2, 2011 SSDD

Same Stuff, Different Day.  I was home with a nasty fever Wednesday, so upon recovering later that evening I got more work done on the Jump Packs.  Now I have roughly half base colored and ready for decals.  Not very eventfull, but still slightly productive.  Can't complain for a day I spent mostly bed ridden.  No just have to take my word for it...


Thanks for reading,
