Wednesday Workbench

Sigh, what a difference a week can make.  Last week on Wednesday Workbench I talked about finishing up some Khador models I had kicking around mostly finished and then talked about starting into some models for my IK RPG game.  Oh how plans change.

In the last 7 days I:

  • Took on a commission for 28 Skorne minis in exchange for 2 boxes of the new plastic Winterguard and a new plastic Retribution of Scyrah (Ret) Battle Box.
  • Knocked out the first 3 models of above Skorne commission in 2 days, Titans Bronzeback, Gladitator, and Tiberion (Character Gladiator).  Then had severe painters block for the last 4 days
  • Purchased a few Ret models to bring the list up to 15pts
  • Sold a crap ton of miniatures at the Huzzah Hobbies Swapmeet Sunday 2/24, and made $700 in store credit in the process.  I proceed to spend $150 of credit on stuff for me and walked away with a Battlefoam Warmachine Bag (Empty), the board game Eclipse+Expansion, Some additional Ret minis, a bunch more Dust Tactics/Warfare SSU minis, and a few books.
  • I also had a second commission project come in (with no deadline) for some Bolt Action German Stuff.  30 guys and 2 Vehicles.
  • Sunday night I felt inspired by Ret (deciding that I wanted to play them in the new PP League starting up on Tuesday) and got to work blocking out the now 27pts worth of Ret stuff I owned.  All together I am unhappy with what I have done so far (See Below), but it could turn out okay.
  • Monday was just a bad day all around
  • Tuesday I headed to Huzzah around 3 and got in 2 games of Warmachine in the new league, managing to be the first to achieve one of the 6 once per league achievements (called Schematics, league is Machinations: Umbra), by doing 36pts of damage to a Swamp Horror killing it in one got.  I had popped eScorscha's Feat that doubles all damage over the armor stat.  The Spriggan which is P+S 18 was rolling dice +1 on a charge and rolled a 17.
  • I also picked up some more Ret and Khador minis I had ordered that came in.  Still waiting on a few more things for Ret and then I am done buying models them for a while. I also got a a few foam trays for my Battlefoam Warmachine bag, but I still need to order a few more.
  • Today I am supposed to play a 100pt game of Warmachine.  Khador vs Retribution.  It is the first time I will have played a game this large in Mk2.

Wednesday Workbench

Hey guys and welcome to a new segment here on 24 Hour Gamer Geek, Wednesday Workbench.  I got the idea for this segment from my good friend Rushputin over at Warpstone Pile. Each week he posts pics of what he is working on, something I keep intending to do but never get around to.  Hopefully I can keep up with this series, remembering to take pics of what is on my workbench after I get home from work each Tuesday evening.

Yesterday was the last day of a 6 week, Warmachine/Hordes Journeyman (Escalation) league at Huzzah. I did pretty well, placing in the top 3 for points each two week block, but never quite reaching the top.  However I did win the award for best painted 35pt army at the end of the league.  Pictures of the army will be in a post later this week.

Next week starts off the first leg of the 4 part Privateer Press official Machinations league, so I though I would share with you some minis I have been work on to get prepared for it.

First off I have WIPs of two new Warcasters I have been working on.  On the left is Strakov and on the right if Zerkova.
