Paint Table Saturday 272 - Skeletons and IG on a Sunday

Hi All,

Well, it was not my intention to go over a week before my next post but that's how it goes sometimes.

I got a little bit of work yesterday. Painted Earth Brown on some bases and stuck down sand on the IG bases. During the week I knocked out a bunch of dry brushing on the bone stuff, primed some skeletons in white, and finished building the last few figures of the Imperial Guard Command Section I need for next weekend. (Typing that out makes me nervous.)

Death Riders and Skull Chucker.

Skeleton Regiment.

Lieutenant and Command Section, plus Grenade Launcher Guardsman that I need.

Anyway, I need to go off and take another training course for coaching. They're wanting us to all have accreditation as well as background checks etc.

Happy painting everyone.

Paint Table Saturday 271 - Guard and Skeletons

Hi All,

A lot of prep going on this week. Well maybe not a lot, but zero painting occurred.

I continued assembling the Lieutenant and command section for my Imperial Guard for the local Rogue Trader campaign at the end of the month. I still need to build a guy with a grenade launcher for the squad and build a Sergeant for the command section. Still not sure what to do about the Vox Caster guy. Pictured above is the Lt, two man Lascannon, Medic and Orderly (carrying the platoon banner. Still not sure how to handle the difference between the old shoulder mounted lascannon (laszooka) and the 2nd Ed forward crew served Lascannon.

Death Riders basing is finally finished. I need to base coat that and some of the missed spots on teir under carriages.

I also did some base work on the catapult crew. I don't remember points values right now, but I think the cavalry and the engine with crew will get me to the 200 points I need for the OWAC this month.

Lastly I finished the base work on these gents. My intention is to prime them white and try the White Dwarf painting methods.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Happy painting.

Operation: Side Hustle (An Ambull Adventure)

Hi All,

This was actually my last game of 2018, but I've had a lot of fiddly things to do lately so it took me awhile to write it up. Once again I met up with Lasgunpacker and Dai. This time Dai brought an extra gang and his son along.

We played another Ambull hunt scenario using the new blind counters. I followed Airborne's suggestion and put the two higher value Ambulls in the middle of the table. For this game we used the Shadow War rules, which are essentially Necromunda, give or take.

I used my cellphone to take the pictures and then tweaked them only in Photoshop with the Poster edge filter and some minor exposure adjustments.

All this fuss over Ambulls.

Hi All,

My phone has been blowing up all weekend with pictures of the new Ambull and Ambot models. All I can say is, you're welcome. I'd like to think that my Ambull obsession over the last couple of years has helped to fuel the resurgence of these models. I am anxiously awaiting my first royalty check.

Let's have a look at my Ambull related posts.

Paint Table Saturday 197 - Matthias Mulders, Merchant is where I threw out the idea for Ambull husbandry.

Ambull Farm where I looked at the references in Rogue Trader and talked about sourcing affordable Ambull figures.

More Ambulls where I introduced Matthias's Ambull whisperer, Felipe, and found some rules for Ambulls from WD99. Which I don't think I ever ended up using btw.

Monolith Con 2017 - Ambulls on the Loose is the first Battle Report using the Ambull capture idea.

Ambull Extraction the next scenario where I tried to add more critters to complement the Ambulls.

Monolith-Con III - Ambull Safari where there were more Ambulls than you could shake a stick at.

There is one more report from late December 2018 that I haven't finished writing yet, I'll probably get it up in the next few days.

Anyway this is my case for being, in some small way, an impetus for the new Ambull release. Any other good Ambull themed posts out there?
