Meeplestock '17 and the beginning of GENCON prep

Long time no post. Lots of things going on, here's a short update.

The Central Wisconsin Iron Gamers (we REALLY need to come up with a better name) has finally managed to run our own Who's the Boss event. We had over 130 unique warcasters and warlocks represented. We're hoping within a year or two we can push to get 100% coverage as we pick up a few new players and models ourselves. Here's some pictures of building the Doomball -- our bingo cage used to draw the bingo balls out, each bingo ball with a 'caster's name on it.

Start with a $2.50 Walmart Bouncy Ball. Covered with layers of phonebook pages and glue to make the inner shell. Then start laying on the fiberglass fabric and resin.

Fully covered in fiberglass and resin.

Plotting out the hatch.

Hatch cut out, hinge and closing lock added, dowels added for spinning the ball.

Painted and Mounted on it's stand. The Doomball sadly had a cardboard hatch for it's first year as I didn't have time yet to make a proper one for it yet.

Cryx chicken jack sitting on top of the Doomball for scale.

Day of the event hits, we have myself and 6 players. Between the 7 of us we pulled together (if I counted correctly) 133 unique Warcasters and Warlocks.

 Pictures from the games show a few of the very random setups players had to contend with.

Irusk was given a new pet by his Empress.

Go forth my zealots! Wait, I think I'm in the wrong church...

And to close out this post, I do plan on getting some painting done soon. In prep, these are the current "to do" list, all washed and ready for mold line cleaning and assembly. 2 months to Gencon. I'm hosed.

Can I paint all of this in a month?

Back in the (painting) saddle again.

Not my best work, but I needed something to get me going again. I need to get ready for Gencon after all.

Privateer Press Secret Santa

Well, I didn't get all of the projects done that I wanted to send, but I at least got one extra model to mail off tomorrow.

My giftee asked for a Legion Shepherd. Well, what good is a shepherd without a sheep? They might try and fit in to a nativity scene for the holidays? Maybe not...

EDIT: And I'm finally getting around to posting this. Thank you Peacemaker44 for a festive take on the Coven.

Start of my 2015 Warmahordes Secret Santa shipment

Just posting this up so I can get this on the Privateer Press forums as a work in progress.

The beginning of the first model of my Secret Santa mailing. Hopefully if I can pick them up I'll be sending a few more than expected.

Identity obscured to maintain the surprise.

Warmachine elves and SDE undead

Did a little painting this past month, figured I'd post them up to share. First up we have some new members of the Retribution of Scyrah.

Thyron, Sword of Truth
Thyron is the newest warcaster to join my elven ranks. Fairly fun to play, but gets murdered by anything with decent control or debuffs.

Houseguard Thane
 Making halberdiers faster since 2014, he finally gets a paint job.

House Shyeel Battle Mages
My third unit of Battle Mages. (Not sure if I ever took photos of my second unit...) When I clearcoated these guys it was a little humid so their bases all frosted up. I'll see if I can clean that up in the coming weeks.

Madelyn Corbeau, Ordic Courtesan
Ok, the only two mercenaries that will work for the Retribution are Madelyn Corbeau, a Courtesan, and Master Holt, the personal bodyguard and confidant of Lady Aiyanna. So it appears the only humans the elves will tolerate at the ones they sleep with? Interesting...

Then we have some more undead that was painted up for my intended Halloween party for Super Dungeon Explore. Adding to the ranks of the Shallow Grave spawning points we have:

Bone Heads

Dust Mages
My ranks of undead are swelling. Mwuhahahaaha. Ha ha. Ha.
