Commission Showcase: Deathwatch Marines

I just finished up Phil's Deathwatch Marines to a display quality. These are some amazing detailed and characterful models. Plenty of images below. One thing I need to work on is taking better pictures. A lot of these aren't as clean or as focused as I'd like. Nonetheless, enjoy.

NRVCon List Building - Eldar - 1,850

Tomorrow I'm getting my first practice game for NRVCon, which is using the NOVA packet, against Aidan. Just a reminder, NRVCon will be in my hometown on April 23-24; if you're remotely in the area, definitely consider coming down for the 32-player tournament. The top 4 will continue on to single elimination rounds on Sunday. A bit more information here, and registration here. With that out of the way, on to list building. I've more or less settled on Eldar as my army for the event, so let's get into it.

FTGT Painting - Patreon and New Website

As I mentioned on Monday, this week marks the first week of me working full time as a commission painter (in addition to being a stay-at-home dad, so full time is more like 4 hours a day if I'm lucky). In addition to painting, I've started a Patreon page, as well as created a new website just for my commission service. The website is primarily a portfolio of completed work; I'll still include in progress and completed project posts here.

FTGT Painting - A Brand New Day

Today marks my first day alone as a stay-at-home dad. With this, it also marks my first day devoting nap time to commission work, which I'm looking to do more or less full time. In support of this, over the last couple weeks, my amazing wife suggested and helped build up a pretty awesome studio area for me in our house. Nearby are plenty of baby hangouts and supplies.

Malifaux Bat Rep: Neverborn (Zoraida) vs. Arcanists (Rasputina)

For our second game of the gaming weekend, Chris made some minor changes to his previous list, while I decided to change things up and run Neverborn. After revealing schemes I chose to try out Zoraida over Lynch. Unfortunately for this report I didn't take any pictures, so excuse the ensuing wall of text.

Malifaux Bat Rep: Gremlins (Ulix) vs. Arcanists (Rasputina)

A couple weeks ago I hosted the guys for a gaming weekend. On Friday night, Chris and I got in a game of Malifaux. He brought Rasputina using her box and a couple other minis. I picked through my Gremlins collection to come up with a list based on the Strategy and Schemes.

Genestealer Cult: Early List Building - 1,850

With the release last weekend of Deathwatch: Overkill, and the leak of the 40k rules for the Genestealer Cult (and subsequent publication by GW online), I went ahead and did some early list building, adding in Tyranids to complete the army.
