Awesomness redfined in many ways

Whoop whoop awesometimes today and yesterday. So lets start with today.

Me and Kylie went to see Luna in Norwich for a fun day of conversing, laughter and shopping.
We found some awesome stuff like my Batman beyond figure of terry maguiness, more gunpla goodness, comics (yaaaaaaaaay). What made me especily happy was the promo freebie. I now have a black lantern ring ... IM A CRAZY ZOMBIE WHOOOOOOOO!!!
Yus well much fun was had by all think ill have to go back to norwich again soon.

Ok so Yesterday between a minor incident in the kitchen I worked on a few minis over Kylies. one being the Old witch of Khadors Scrap Jack.

I really wanted to make the jack look like it was a hunk of scrap so instead of khadoran reds I used Tin Blitz as a base and then dryburushed (oh noes i dry brushed i sinned) brazzen brass over the jackand whala scrap jack ala scrap.

I also managed to paint kylies pirate before the game started except for the hair. I say it was probaly the most enjoyable model to paint just because I got to play with colours and mixing browns to do the leathers. I stil lhate trying to paint eyes.
So the other night we got around to finnshing the witchfire Part 1 - the Longest Night.
Warning the following section contains spoilers.
So we ran through the last part where alexias undead minions attack Corvis and well do quite a good job of causing terror. You know they were meant to. Terror and Confusion. So after shooting hacking and wrenching there way therough the undead to the church (as al the mechanik finnaly decided the undead So did not come across the city gates but probaly through the chirch catacombs). So they got there unfortunatly Kai had a family emergency and had to bail so his sorceress was koed by some falling rubble from a stray cannonball.
They got to the church to find it not streamign with undead and Father dumas out in full battle dress.
So we jumped straight into defendign the bridge. I only lobbed them 2 of the suggested 4 waves only because being a party of now 3 meant they were outnumered. I did send in Father dumas to aid the party esspecialy after the arcae mechanik was taken out of action with a unfortunate critical.
The waves took a bit of effort because of the smaller team (they were outnumbered 2 - 1 at level 2) the 2 fights served there purpose though. By the end the entire party including the fighter were wounded (albeit not that much in the fighters case) and tired from there ordeal as they retreated back Father dumas had to tend to the mechanik. Finnaly the undead came over in the huge wave and the party were like BUGGER this in whuch Alexia came in took her mothers body and the witch fire. enter the mysterious wizard the tug of war for the sword began and the PCs decided to give it to the Wizard. Non of the party trust Alexia at all which is great. I mean seriously awesome cause hell i wouldnt. Id still hit it.
SO we ended the game with Alexia flying off with the witch fire her entire army fell into old bones and a exhaughsted party was left to watch the city skyline burn.
So next session will be time for them to do what they need to do before the next part. So a bit of free form RPing and also I think I may run the inbetween quest. anyway its 3am i need to bloody sleep.

just a little update today

you know i havebeen painting my minis of late and i hought Id show everyone how far I have gotten.

BEHOLD from left to right - Vahn oberon (iron kingdoms - witch fire trilogy), Alexia Ciannor (witch fire trilogy - iron kingdoms), Miyamato Musashi (Infinity) and the big guy at the back is my Sprigana khadoran heavy warjack.

My sprigan im very proud off just because its not all red!!! I went and added another colour that wasnt a metal AWESOMENESS!!!

Ohberon isnt very red for my liking. Ill probaly go over Ohberon next with a coat of blood red snd p3 red ink mainly to pick out the folds in the robes.
alexias jacket i am pleased with. Its a mi of scorched brown (games workshop) and blood tracker brown (p3) iron wht ive then washed over with ogryn flesh (games workshop). Ohberon and alexia are from the iron kingdoms minatures range and featurei the witch fire trilogy. I have picked up all the Witch Fire Trilogy miatures and so far have completed only father dumas (whos missing an arm)
helstrom will be on the workbench later on after ive finished my current 3 miniatures. He will be joining Scarlet Kylies pirate minature from our dnd games.

I think ill paint alexia quite pale as she seems the pale kind.

Miyamato even though you cant see it properly hes standing on one of the street scenic bases from black cat bases. There awesome. and to be honest I dont think i did not even i have still need to put a base on him its got a big enough base as it is. Hes from the infinity game range and I still have to build his entire team and there support mech fuuuuun.
Right back to fixing my pc and going to sleep cause work tommorow /sigh
