You can never start too early ..

Last night I took my Niece to Chucks to get her first mini's and paints. I let her pick out 5 colors and a box of what looked cool to her, she went with Stormboyz ... haha. I told her they are Orks.. She said that's a funny name and asked if they could be called beasteses.. sure. They are yours you can call them whatever you want. I also got her the small box of 4 Fantasy Orks.. So my next project is to get them built and primed for her. If you have kids you know they aren't a very patient sort. She asked me if I'd have them done by today.. haha ummm no. Probably this weekend, which was allowable .. but I even got yelled at for being late because I said I'd be over at 6:30 and I walked up at 6:34 ..

I don't think it will last very long but it's still cool.. well for me it's cool for my sister well she just groaned haha .. Right now if Uncle Todd likes it .. Makenzi does too ..   8) I know my wife is already worried about how much I nerd up my Daughter and Son haha ..!!

KIll Teams .. it brings out the MEAN in you

Last night I ran the second Kill Team Night at Chucks Comics.. it worked out well and everyone seemed to have a good time. We're going to try to figure out what Friday will work best so we can have a monthly Kill Team night. We had six show (which was pretty good for a Monday night) but a few had to leave early.. Scotty B stepped in with the Stormtrooper KT I brought.. and was playing quiet going for his objective until he had the misfortune of having a drop pod of Death Company land right by him (but he brought them the pain with the Hot Shot Las). I added a few surprises to the game this time like the Drop Pod and a few of the bonus chests beside being bombs or points could be a Broodlord (Which Scott also found haha Josh got the other) There are going to be a few more mods for next time .. I'm trying to get a well balanced system that's fun and fair..  so far it seems to be a success.
I got the other containers I was working on mostly down .. so they were on the field. I also cut the boards down from 4x8 to 4x6 .. that may even get smaller next time ..  who knows 8)

Get your Kill Team on..

This Monday night going to have another Kill Team Event at Chucks.. (Chucks Comics our local gaming store) .. I made a few modifications to my rules to bring them up to 6th Ed .. Depending on how many people come to play I may just be Reffing .. if now I think I'm going to be take 8 DC with various kit, with the change in the Rage rule they should be fun to run around and smash face with.

I'll also be bringing some other forces for others to use if they show up and want to play but have nothing to use. It should be a pretty good time .. the last one was awesome (other then the fact that I rolled a 1 or 2 to wound almost every damn time! haha)..

Have a good weekend..

Big Sharp Pointy Teeth..

Last night I was cleaning up my painting room and showing my 4 1/2 year old Niece how to paint a mini. She loved it .. but my sister was a bit worried I think haha ..  My Niece now wants to go pick out her own minis so she can paint them like Uncle Todd does .. haha .. WHOOT!

I didn't paint anything last night so took some pics of the Demon thing I made at Games Day.. Looking at the picture now I noticed that a few pieces must have popped off. the main thing is the blood letter's head that should be on the body on the ground by his left foot (hoof actually I suppose) haha ..  I went for a gimpy birdman look.. with the bits I had I thought that would look decent. He's leaning or jumping over a Khorne Banner while stomping a downed Blood Letter into the dirt .. Who knows what I'll do with this guy. He really has no use in anything I play haha ..

Here's a pic of what I need to find a new home for ..

Matt responded yesterday with what I was thinking as well.. there aren't many shelves in that IKEA case .. I do have some fliers and tall models so it may not matter but I'm going to look around for something else better but not too much more expensive ... don't think that will happen so the IKEA cases will probably end up being what I get but I'll look a little more ..  I could build something but I want it to be glass. And while I could go buy the glass and build a frame I don't think I want to or have the time to.
