Carpe Noctem: First concert

Well, the Grateful Undead had their first 'concert' this past weekend at Origins - and took home Best Army there! So not too shabby.

But I haven't stopped. In less than two weeks I'm going to a Indy GT (Buckeye Battles III) - and I figure the band needs some security - so they did what the Rolling Stones did and hired the Hells Angels.

5 converted Ork bikers as KoBK to give the army some hitting power. Two options to add them to 2250 - either drop a unit of wolves and all the core (skeletons and ghouls) to 10 (and lose a magic level for the lord) - thus making a pretty hard list. Or going w/ 4 KoBK, only 3 wraiths (2 + banshee), and no magic level upgrades or extra dice for casters (thus only 7 power dice), but full units of skeletons and ghouls.

Still working on some newer pictures.

Carpe Noctem: paint on the models

Yes, it is a day that many thought would never come. And truly it hasn't, quite yet - but it is significantly closer.

Yes, I finally have some paint on the models. Just in time, as I want to play this army at Origins this weekend!

Still need to finish all the bases, but here are several updates:

First, my favorite, Skulls and Roses

The stoners (these also will have smoke added after the bases are done)

The groupies

and half the deadheads (being rushed for time, I'm not attempting to paint the other 40 zombies yet)

I'm still not used to my wife's camera, but getting a little better.
