Crew a Week Project (Week 11) - Lucas McCabe's Relic Hunters.

Cutting it a bit fine this week but to be fair I was painting the Guild Riflemen as well as the Relic Hunters which is ten models in total...and I have to fit work and sleep in there somewhere as well.....

Lucas McCabe - Mounted.

and Dismounted.

and of course...Luna...

Sidir Alchibal.

and McCabe's Wastrels.

 and as a bonus objective for myself I painted some Guild Riflemen as well...

I tried to get a more grimy look for the Wastrels and a darker feel for the Riflemen by using extra layers of wash rather than with highlights...I leave it up to you to decide if I was successful or not. I'll also take some pictures of them with nicer backgrounds and a group shot or two tomorrow some time.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

Games Workshop 'Apocalypse' Newsletter (1 of 4 Apparently)

Apocalypse is here...I like the Necron one, hate the Khorne one and think the Space Marine characters are too static in pose...I'm also not fond of the guy with a vehicle sprue radar dish glued to his shoulder.

As Games Workshop Newsletters are awkward to copy in their original form the link to the pre-order page can be found here. The newsletter itself is below...

2nd Edition Raffle

The M2E open beta is still open and strong and we would like to thank everyone who has taken the time and effort to download, play and most importantly, give your feedback.
Running up to the release of Malifaux 2nd Edition, Wyrd is running a raffle in an effort to support local brick and mortar game stores. Every week in the months of July and August we will raffle off a copy of the new M2E book and a random newly released plastic box set to some lucky person who purchased Wyrd product (including Evil Baby Orphanage and Puppet Wars) at a local game store! To enter, scan or photograph your receipt and send it to Jacqulyn@wyrd-games.netwith the exact words, "M2E Raffle" in the title of the email. The receipt must have the date of purchase, name of the store, price, and product code (or name of the item) visible. Unfortunately, hand written receipts can not be accepted. At the end of every week, we will pick a random person in both North America and abroad (Europe, etc) and we will send them a bundle! Winners will be emailed and will have 48 hours to respond, or a new winner will be selected. The store where the purchase was made will also receive a copy of the new M2e Rulebook to use as store copy.
Only product purchased through brick and mortar stores will be eligible. I know that not everyone has an LGS near them, but we are really trying to help support local business. Winners will be picked from entries during that week (so if you enter on week 1, you need to enter again to try to win week 2). You may enter as many times as you wish during any week. Prizes will be sent after August 15th due to production and manufacturing times.

Summer Streamroller
Like A New Army for the Summer of War... on Facebook

He turned to see that a score of Tiro’s men had dropped to the ground, clutching at ragged wounds and bloodied stumps. A pall of grey smoke shrouded the trees to their left flank, but it did not hide the second group of Ogres. They were hanging back, reloading the immense wide-bore rifles they carried... Read the full story here!

Weekly House of Paincakes Article (9)

This weeks House of Paincakes article is the second part of my feature on the Malifaux Neverborn faction and can be found here.

The now obligatory set of accompanying pictures was originally meant to go with the first article which contained Lilith but I got distracted by Comic-book Cosplay, lol.

and for the person who complained that I only ever post pictures of's a picture of Brandon Lee...

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome...they can even be on the article if you like...
