Memorial Day


Here in the States, today is Memorial day.  For most people it is a Monday off work.  There will be lots of grilling, parties with families and friends and the opening of swimming pools across the country.

Painting - Challenge XIV Finale

  Today's post is more CIS for Star Wars Legion. My youngest son is interested in playing Legion and he has chosen CIS. These models represent the final models to be painted for his first army list. With these completed he can show up for his first game with a fully painted army. 

Ten models to complete an army.

Painting - Star Wars Legion

  There was no entry last week because Rhys and I were off to play in a Star Wars Legion skirmish tournament on plains east of Denver. We had fun but do not really like that format. We really went to support the locals as they are trying to get a Legion group going out there. 

This week's entry will be a bit larger than usual as a result. First off is Clan Wren for the rebels. 

Clan Wren. All three of them.

  This week is more B1s for Star Wars Legion. This unit gives me four squads. This is the Orange squad. 

More B1s. Same as the other ones.

Painting - Rhys - Oathmark elves and fantasy Bones

  This week I painted more elves. And some more fantasy Bones. These are Oathmark elves and I like them a lot better than the GW ones.

These are Oathmark from Northstar. I bought them and put them together all by myself.

Painting - Challenge XIV - Morannon Orcs

  This  week is more of the same, though less of it. I completed 16 Morannon Orcs with sword and shield. Actually it's 12 of those, two captains, a shaman and a banner. The Star Wars Legion stuff is still working its way across the table, but hopefully it will be ready for next week. 

The rank and file are shades of brown but I did the Captains with red to help them stand out.

Painting - From Rhys. Crashed X-Wing for Star Wars Legion

  This week I painted a crashed X-Wing for Star Wars Legion. I painted the pilot last week, she's blue.

These pieces are 12 inches by 12 inches and 3 inches tall. 

The B1 is for scale. There are four sections. This is the biggest.

Painting - 17 more models for the Painting Challenge

This week's entry is two more Star Wars Legion models, a dwarf for role playing and some nasty Morannon Orcs to storm Osgiliath and Minas Tirith.

First up are Luke and C3PO. There are several versions of Luke models and two different game versions, a commander and an operative. This is the Operative Luke model.

His clothes are all black so I went with Black and dark gray with a Nuln Oil wash to give some differentiation.

Painting - Rhys - Challenge XIV entry

 This week is a mix of Sci-fi (Star Wars Legion) and Sci-Fi. First off I'm finally done with the elves. This is the wizard for them. She was really hard to paint. 

There is so much detail on this model. I tried really hard to make her look right but she was very hard. Dad showed me a sculpture where it looks like she is wearing something over her face and this model has the same thing. (edit: the Veiled Virgin by Giovanni Strazza)

She has parts of the model going in all different directions.

Painting - Challenge XIV - Jyn Erso, Grime and B1s

  This week's entry is Grime the Goblin Wizard, Jyn Erso and more B1's for Star Wars Legion. Jyn will be transporting me back to the entry room as Grimes is a new acquisition. 

I actually finished Jyn a few weeks ago but was saving her to help me move around the library.

Jyn is a great model in game. She's surprisingly good in melee.
