Hello again!
Sorry for the late reply, the weekend ended up being more eventful in other ways than painting sadly. I spent most of my time at the game store, just doing other things but painting! But, I did get something done! I have bad gamer ADHD and got the urge to work on some Trollbloods. Haven't really figured out a list yet, but I've really always enjoy the Warlock model Grim Angus. So, I painted him up and I'm planning a warpack with him currently. I'm pretty sure I'm already set on a Troll Impaler, and I'm thinking of an Earthborn Dire troll as well. But to the pictures! Sorry their not the best quality, I haven't been able to make it to the hobby lobby for some linen to make my light box yet, but plan to this weekend (yay 4 day weekend!).

Alrighty then!

Sorry for the late update, work has been busy! I've started to work on my first list, painting wise, got a few things primed, and airbrushed the base coat of skorne red on last night. Today my goal is to get Mordikaar and the Void Spirit finished. If I do complete with some time left, I'm going to start on the Bronzeback! I've attached some pics of the airbrushed based models I did last night, and I'll post up some WIP of Mord and the Void Spirit throughout today as I'm working on them! Sorry for the poor lighting on them, haven't bother to set up a lightbox yet, going to try and also get that done this weekend as well.

Trial Army lists! List 1

So, I'm taking to two 50 point lists for Steamroller Format next year to the Cons I'm planning on attending. I've only played one game with each so far, and still need to tweak them some I think. I haven't played my skorne in quite a few years, I might need to swap out a few things here and there, but honestly won't know until I get a few more games in. But for now, let's get to the lists!

List 1:

Void Seer Mordikaar   +5 WB Pts
Cyclopse Brute   5
Bronzeback Titan   10
Molik Karn   11
Aptimus Marketh   3
Cataphract Arcuarii (Leader and 3 Grunts)   6
Paingiver Beast Handlers (Leader and 3 Grunts)   2
Praetorian Karax (Leader and 9 Grunts)   6
Praetorian Karax (Leader and 9 Grunts)   6
Tyrant Commander & Standard Bearer   3
Void Spirit   2
This list only comes to 49. I'm still debating the idea with the Brute, I originally had a Basalisk Drake there for the spray, but I have plenty of infantry to counter enemy infantry should I need to I think.  The whole idea behind Molik and the Bronzeback is pretty much to wreck face on any enemy warbeasts/warjacks. The Brute is more for a defensive warbeast on Mord with shield guard should the need arise, and to help clean up should I lose one of my heavies early in the game. The Paingiver Handlers are obviously there to assist managing the beasts every turn with enrage/medicate etc.
The two units of Karax are pretty much tarpit units in a sense for scenario play and to hold objective in shield wall. Also plan to keep hollow on at least one unit, and that exploding spell (can't think of the bloody name right now and don't have my skorne cards/book on me) that way if possible I can get some extra Fury. Arcuarii are there to deal with warbeasts/warjacks and heavy infantry, never hurts to have some CRA drag and smack with weapon masters running around :).  Tyrant Commander & SB are there to support both Karax units and the Arcuarii with his little *action abilites.
Marketh is there to hopefully support Mord by upkeeping his spells from gaining tokens from dying infantry around him, so Mord can hold onto his fury each turn. The Void Spirit is pretty much there to harass other solo's or eliminate them if possible, he doesn't really need much support in my opinion.

I'll post the 2nd list a little later this evening after work :D.

The start of something new...

So I've checked out a few blogs just recently, and I think the concept is pretty cool. A fellow gamer, Plarzoid, has a blog I've read off and on and with a little encouragement, I've decided to do one as well. I'll start posting a few pictures of progress later this evening, but for now I'm going to be keeping track of two 50 point Hordes: Skorne army lists and my progress with the modelling and painting aspect of it. These two lists will be the lists I'm continuously play testing, as I'll be taking them on the road in 2010 for as many Cons as I can manage to get to! Right now, the group I play with and I, are looking at:

Bayou Wars
Locked and Loaded (I believe that's what it's called, it's up near PP in Washington, don't know a whole lot about it yet).
Warmachine Weekend (which is a blast I might add!)

I'm excited about doing this, and I'll start posting up the test lists with Warlocks I'll be using later this evening, with some WIP shots of what I've got so far!

Until then, cheers!
