DARK AGE - Here comes Mongo!

The first "miniature" that attracted me to Dark Age was this guy, Mongo. I bought him at AdeptiCon one year. My once-a-year purchase of a miniature that I had every intention of carefully assembling and then painting to the best of my ability.

It took me quite a few years to get there, but I recently finished him up for use in my games of Dark Age. I had a lot of fun, particularly with the large expanses of pale flesh - I think I'm improving on my flesh painting but these photos make the transitions look a bit more stark than they actually are.

Anyway, while I'm filming some content for the next series of projects, I thought you might like to see some more recent stuff : )

Decisions have been made!

Thanks very much for all your excellent suggestions. I'm ready to get started on a few new projects and filming some more "discussion" style videos, so that it's a bit easier to understand how I think about/plan out my projects. If you have any questions about these new projects, please click on the link below and start asking away.


PS. I hope this works ; )

So, what's next? What should I work on?

It has been quite a while since I completed the Warlord Titan build. I've not recorded a video since, so maybe it is time to get back on the horse. What do you fine readers want to see?

WRATH OF KINGS - My Nasier collection

Sooooooooo busy! Working 60+ hours a week and raising two crazy kids. But enough of my excuses. MOAR toy soldiers!

Over the past nine months I've been working part-time for CoolMiniOrNot, anywhere from one to two weeks out of each month, focusing on marketing and promotional planning for Dark Age and Wrath of Kings. I know I've posted some of my Dark Age minis before, but not my WOK stuff.

Well, today that changes. I've ben in a bit of a frenzy lately, painting up the second half of my Nasier collection so that I can take it with me over to see the team at Beasts of War. That's right, we'll be filming a bunch of videos about Wrath of Kings and I wanted to have PLENTY of options to discuss with the guys.

So, here they all are, ready to be packed away into a suitable travel case.

Above are my Ashmen Swordsmen, with two Ashmen Hakars (their leaders).

Here are my Pelegarth Bloodmasks, with two Pelegarth Howls (their leaders).

And above are my first Rank 2 Infantry, the Fel Hammers, led by one of The Unmasked.

These are my current Rank 1 Specialists. From left to right: The Longhorn, Arkazan Greatwing, and the Rathor.

These are my recently completed Rank 2 Specialists. From left to right: Shadrus Arikim, The Bloodchild, and the Blind Hakar.

And finally, my Rank 2 Leaders. From left to right: Elsis Tagil, Alyana Heska, and Arkan Thesh.

Wrath of Kings is a great game, where your tactical decisions on the tabletop can make or break your game. No unit is unstoppable, here's a counter to everything, ad good decision making is key.

Also, CMON provides the rules and units cards for free on the WOK website, if you want to check it out HERE : )
