This week, I completed my basic 4-point army for SAGA (29 models.)


I also got colors blocked and shading wash applied to the next 2 points of the same army (8 models.) And, I began prep work on another 24 models of optional troops.

Ideally, I would have finished those 8 models and completed the prep work on the other 24, but instead I packed them up for moving. I will probably not have much chance to do hobby stuff again until maybe Jan. 18th or 19th.

Neat stuff, busy man.

Progress: Jan. 7th to Jan. 12th, 2017:

I haven't made too much hobby progress over the last six (not seven!) days. My big news is that I moved back to Las Vegas temporarily, have wholly hated this city in the short time I have been back, come down a bit sick, but also got to see my son a couple of days (which really made up for the rest of it.)

On the hobby front, I have finished the last eight models of my initial SAGA Irish warband, got the parsley on the bases and everthing. In game terms, I have a 6-point army ready to roll. Hopefully I will be able to get a picture of them posted sometime in the next few days.

I have also prepped another 24 models to expand the army (12 Levies with slings, 12 Angry Monks) and ordered just a few more models to allow myself extra flexibility in fielding my force (allowing all Hearthguard and Levies to be equipped with javelins.)

2 more points of Irish ready to paint:

Well, it was a bit of a bumper week for me. I got in a game of Lion Rampant using my SAGA Irish last Satyrday with Bashytubits and Mike:



And over the course of the week, I made some good progress on my SAGA Angry Monks and Japanese Type 5 Ke-Nu, both about a third done:


It looks like more gaming tomorrow, and possibly painting every night for the rest of the week.

January 21st to January 27th, 2017

Ok, my simple offerings for this week are finished units for SAGA, 12 Irish Kerns with slings and 12 Angry Monks.




And last Satyrday I played a game of Lion Rampant with Bashytubits and Mike:

Well well well, I feel like I got a lot more accomplished this week than maybe I actually *did* but who's counting, right?

First up, I have five "women and children" that will be part of a unit of javelin-equipped Kerns in my SAGA Irish warband:


And what would an Irish warband be without a Wandering Bard?


I am replacing my Fiannas made from Saxon models with more javelin-armed guys, so I have a few extra Saxon axemen roaming about. A quick look through the extras allowed the start of a new SAGA Anglo-Saxon warband. It's not much to look at yet, but it's progress:


Fast forward 1,000 years, and I have finished painting my Type 4 Ke-Nu for Bolt Action. It is the first model in my Imperial Japanese army. It was 3D printed by Bashytubits:


Today, I played a small game of Lion Rampant, only 12 points but in preparation for the Las Vegas Open's Lion Rampant event tomorrow, which will be a multiplayer game which each participant fielding, you guessed it, 12 points. Mostly I wanted to see how all the rules would work, I was playing to test not to win and I lost pretty soundly:


Not even Super Saiyan Goku the slinger could turn the odds in my favor:


And *this* is why it is important to pay attention to how the colors in your pattern interact with one another…

I am waiting for my order from Black Tree Design. There was an error in the restock from England, so it is taking longer than expected. In the meantime, I have finished painting all of the models for my current projects. I have the Saxons waiting, but they are more of a "side" than something I am actively trying to wrap up. Once I finish the Irish, I will be ordering the WWII Japanese. Maybe Saxons after that, or maybe I will go back to working on stuff for DBA. I never expected to be working on two separate historical armies as main projects and have no sci-fi or fantasy even on the premises to be worked on.

Strange times, indeed.

I didn't do much this week. I cancelled trips to Storage to retrieve some projects three times, I finally got down to one of the units today to get some stuff. I assembled my remaining six plastic Saxons earlier in the week, got them basecoated in black but didn't bother with pictures before putting them away. Mostly, I am STILL waiting for my BTD order, just 16 models to finish up my SAGA Irish.

The funny thing about my Irish is, that while I can play a reasonably sized SAGA game with them, I haven't done so. I keep playing Lion Rampant with them instead.

Yesterday was another Lion Rampant day, Bashytubits and I each played 12 points (as one Retinue, Bashytubits had our leader) against Mike's 24 points. When our side hit the 50% point, we called the game and declared Mike the winner.

This week, lacking any actual miniatures that I wanted to work on, saw me possessed by the papercrafting bug. I finished up a batch of space monsters for my 1/4000 Star Trek stuff, and almost finished the third of four fixed-terrain modular boards for my Egypt-themed Frostgrave games:



And then my order from BTD arrived, and I started working on the last batch of figures for my SAGA Irish warband:


The back row is a new unit of Fiannas, the front row is my new Warlord, his banner dude, and one more Bonnacht to fill out a unit that lost a man in the War band re-organization.

Progress: February 20th to March 4th, 2017

I missed a week of updating because I did nothing for a week… not a single thing. This week, I have been visiting Madera expecting my granddaughter Sally to be born. 6 days late, 10 lbs. 14 ozs., and a few complications. But she is doing better every day.

While we were , I was able to ct with one of the local gaming fauna and acquire some 28mm WWII Japanese infantry for my upcoming Bolt Action platoon. Since I left a nice set of hobby supplies here when I returned to Vegas last time, I have begun prepping them:


Woo! One picture!

I know you have some more Irish near finished, let's see them.
