Wrath of Kings Game Board

CMON commissioned me to make a few tables for them. If you're following Wrath of Kings on Facebook, you'll have seen some shots of this bard I made for them. The setting is the foothills outside a ruined fortress. They asked me to use some of 4Ground's MDF scenery for the woodsman's house and the ruins themselves.

What's in the Project Queue? (Apr 2017)

There are a ton of new gaming opportunities on the horizon– Shadow War: Armageddon is going to get a separate rulebook with all of the extra kill team profiles added in. I definitely want to pick that up and convert a kill team or two. The next edition of 40K is looking promising, and I might bring my Black Templars (or my Necrons) out of retirement when that drops.


There are also the Kharadron Overlords, which I'm seriously considering picking up. In the meantime, here's what's on the painting desk for my undead legion:


Hexwraiths


The horses are finally finished. I have 11 models, including two unit champions, so I can field them as two units of five, or swap out one of the champions for a regular trooper and make it a single unit of ten.

Black Templars, Heavy Hitters

I've been busy with terrain table commissions for the past few months, so I've been neglecting my blog. There hasn't been any time to work on personal projects– My Morghasts and Hexwraiths haven't been languishing on my work station.


All the rumors of a new 40K edition have gotten me thinking about my Black Templars. Maybe I'll be able to pull them out of retirement. At any rate, since I don't have anything new to show you, I decided to update the gallery with some of the models that are lacking detail photos.

Making Static Grass Tufts

One of the things I've been working on is a way to produce static grass tufts for terrain projects.


 

The key to making them is having the right length of grass and an electric charge to make the grass stand upright. I made a static grass applicator using an electric flyswatter and a metal strainer.
