Yes indeed. I decided to have a go at hosting a forum, for all you gamers and hobbyists out there to come together and talk about anything hobby related. The page is only a couple of days old, and is still being moved and tweaked here and there, but please stop by, register (it only takes a minute) and join in!
Here are a few shots of my mean and nasty sniper troops, my Widowmakers. These unpleasant characters soften up my enemy from a distance, whittling the troops down before they get anywhere near me. Human or Jack it makes no difference, as both feel the wrath of the Khadoran sniper rifles.
I generally use these to pick off troops, as I am usually facing Menoth, and if they get close enough, they cause me all sorts of problems, what with the synergy that Menoth seems to have *shakes fist at Evan*. Long range attacks is it, nothing else. If they get in to hand to hand combat, you can kiss them goodbye. On more than one occasion they have been the victim of a successful chain lightning attack as well… Still, Khadors finest marksmen have more than earned their points cost in my army, and they will definitely be staying. Hail the Widowmakers!
I tend to paint bases in large batches, hence these haven’t been done yet 🙂
As promised in my December painting challenge, work has begun on the Destroyer! Work has also started on Eiryss too, but I took this picture before that began, so I’ll post some more pictures later.
I want him to look work and battle weary. He’s going to have some rust spots and some chips, and snow clumped on him too. I was deliberatley slapdash with the highlighting to start giving him that ‘been in a few fights’ type look.
Indeed! I found more pictures I forgot I had! These are pretty small, and unfortunately don’t do the mini too much justice, but in the interest of getting my page up and running, i’ll post them anyway. I always thought it a little bizarre that a faction that dwells predominantly in the Northlands would have their color as red. Surely this would make you somewhat of an easy target in the frozen lands, no? sneak attacks? I don’t think so! Anyhoo, here, my Forward Kommander Sorscha Kratikoff is in her red uniform. I do have the Epic Sorscha which I will be doing in white.
Currently I am working on my Destroyer Warjack, which is actually going to be green (lots of forests up north!). I’ll be sure to get some pictures up over the weekend.
Can you see the dawn approach?
or see the fire in the sky?
Now the closing chapter of humanity,
the inevitable fate of mankind
Can you still believe in hope
on this darkest day you have known?
Will you still thank your precious god
or have the seeds of doubt been sown?
Will you admire the landscape
of broken bodies, of fallen men?
will you know the falling rain
as it burns onto your skin?
Devastation – untold
Pain and misery
the dying breath of hope
war-torn and bleeding…
Will you attempt in vain
to wash the bloodstains from your hands?
will you stop to lament the lost
their lives offered in your name?
Like a statue will you stand and stare
as though a cenotaph of despair
an inscription no-one will read
in this your final hour of need…
