On the Painting Desk 52

Number 52, which means it's been one year so far that I have been bundling my paint efforts into a single weekly post, woop woop.

Not that there is anything special for this week's episode or such.

I finished some odds and ends in the likes of 3 more havocs to round out a unit, as well as 2 assault marines for my Raptor squad, but that is it for the past days.

Towards next week, I might get to try and finish that batch of Rhino's in the video, but no other big plans on the menu for the rest though...

See you again in a few days!

More corrupted Black Templars

Nothing to fancy this week again in finished models, as I completed the last two Black Templar Assault marines.

Well, for use in my Emperor's Children of course... so sporting the lovely black and pink colours.

It where the final two stragglers of a box I obtained last october, and now they round out the Raptor squad for my EC's with chainsword and such.

Next, back to some epic scale models...

Unboxing Hot and Dangerous Rebecca the Red Coat

A range of 28mm and 54mm pin up models produced by polish company Wargamer Games Studio LTD (the guys from the 15mm By Fire and Sword range) that I backed on Kickstarter, I'm opening the sets and making short unbox video's on them.

The second figure I'm taking a look at from my 3 figure pledge, is red coat Rebecca, who will make a superb vignette or objective counter for the FIW, AWI or 7YW games.

Thanks for watching!

Voltron Legendary Protector season 4

The fourth (short) season of the Voltron Netflix animation, this season puts us in another change of leadership.

But it keeps getting stronger and stronger... and perhaps even less children suited to be honest as it starts playing heavily on emotions this series.


The paladin's keep organising the rebellion against the disappeared Emperor, as they keep liberating planets.  In the meantime, some of them go through heavy personal situations, what affects not only themselves, but also how the team functions, like Keith and Pitch.  And then the Emperor Zarkon returns, overthrowing Prince Lothor who is building secret ships with the comet from s3.

What I liked about it

* Episode 2 - Reunion... darn that was a heavy one.
* The cow milking sequence...

What I didn`t like about it

* It was a short series at only 6 episodes though.

Time to watch season 5!

TSA Clubevening of the 15th of June 2018

As was to be expected, now that our ACW megabattle has been cleaned up, a lot more games where once again in full swing at the clubhouse.

While I myself didn`t make a "playdate" for the final week I could get there this month, that didn`t stop me from marvelling over some other games present.

Dead Man's Hand was played by a heap of players, each one after one of the others, but this was of course unbeknowst to the targets.

With Age of Sigmar getting an updated ruleset, the old one was waved out with a battle between Sigmarines and the Undead legions.

X-Wing was played as well this night.

Another fantasy game, this time with the 9th Age rules, was fought with some gorgeous models.

The Star Wars Imperial Assault game was played in the boardgame part of the clubhouse.

Beyond the Rhine continued to be put through it's paces in another week of the player's campaign.

A roleplaying group gathered to brave the depths of the dungeons.

Which also happened with another one of the Heroquest groups.

A large Napoleonic 15mm (now THAT is unusual at the club, as 28mm seems to be our "in house scale") saw the french and the british clash.

The final game of the evening was a world war 1 dogfight, with nice in height changeable airplanes.

So that was another lovely evening with a variety of games for sure, until the next time!

Havoc expansion

A small update to an existing Havoc regiment today, as I rounded out my plasmagun / lascannon squad to it's full 10 man compliment.

Though these guys are nothing more then "meatshields" (albeit in power armour) to allow the heavy and special weapons to do their job, I prefer those extra plated layers of protection on a squad that I use as mobile vehicle hunters.

Adding an Aspiring Champion with chainsword and bolt pistol, as well as two bolter armed marines to the unit, they are now ready for service in a complete strength manner.

Next up for the force, more armoured power as I`ll be tackling something bigger the coming weeks...

Ledendag Modelbouw@be

Today TSA hosted the yearly membersday of the scale modellers club Modelbouw@be.

As both hobbies have a lot in common, this also meant some lovely eye candy.

Apart from drooling over the models, like this paper build dutch ship, there where a whole heap of lovely models on sight, and I picked up some pointers left and right as well.

We also catered for lunch, consisting of soup, goulash and ice cream for the members.

They also ran a raffle, so I "sponsored" them and came away with thus keychain / diecast model of a trabant :-)

It was a relax and cosy day... but now I'm off to do the dishes xD
