Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been blogging as much (but still keeping up on twitter and instagram), but I have been very busy Hobbying away. This is one of the first years where I left Nova, and immediately continued painting. I've also been extremely excited about the orks, and been planning and painting away some of the new units. First up is one of the new Jump Dragsta's!
Welcome back my friends! Bonjour mes amis! Recently returned from a vacation in Paris just in time for Orktober. Thought I'd share my last few models with you!
First off, while doing research on Paris, I met a local online Vermenarque who gave us a ton of tips and advice. We met up with him and had a few drinks at a lovely cafe, and I gave him the first international Trust in Rust ambassador (as much as an ork can be an ambassador!).
Welcome back to the final bat reps of the Narrative! These two are amazing! First one was vs Craig and Amanda, two awesomely drunk people who are great to play with (craig blew me up one of the previous years, and now he got his wife in the action of blowing up greg's stuff), and my partner was Dave, who you will remember from the awesome landraiders last year. (He's playing Khorne daemons). Big stompy things vs big stompy things! My type of game!
Dave also won best painted this year! Congrats Dave! Well deserved!
Welcome my friends. Prepare for a punishing round of battle reports. I faced tau three times in a row at Nova Open....it was pretty brutal. Here is how the games went! (all fantastic opponents, just index orks vs codex tau is brutal unless you are running a particular list).
Off to the races, lets see how those green skins did!
Welcome my friends! Time to do some Nova Open battle reports! My first battle was vs Dan, an awesome guy I previously played with last year. We'd be facing off in the first game of the night, 2k, nids and gene stealer cults vs Trust in Rust Walkers! Dan and all the players in narrative were happy to allow me use of the Dakka Dakka rule (published on warhammer community), so this was the first time I got to utilize it!
I was especially happy because we got to play on the awesome Ork fort terrain, brought and supplied by Chris Stover. It was a great looking board with two awesome armies matched up! My list was bunch of walkers + stuff, Dan's was bunch of big buggies + gene stealer cult shennigans.
Hey everyone! Back from Nova Open! Got all the photos up as quick as I could. You can check all 450ish of them at imgur at the following link.
I'll be working on the battle reports later this week. Enjoy!
Hey everyone! All prepped for Nova! Not too much new this year, other then the GIANT BLUE KNIGHT and the other redone walker...oh and a unit of grots, and a slew of rokkit boyz! That knight really sucked up the hobby time, probably spent around two months on him overall.
Welcome my friends, to another completed post! This one took months and months of time to figure out and get done properly. It's my most complex model to date, with the most modification, and my first time painting blue!
Hey everyone! Had a productive weekend. Was able to finish my last unit of grots, bringing my total to 30. (so I can run 3x10 for 6 CP). I got little movement trays for them as well, so setup and use of them should be pretty simple and quick on the table top. (everyone knows I hate moving infantry models...give me giant bases!)
Hey everyone! Though I haven't been blogging as often, I've been crazy active on twitter and instagram. Trying to figure out a way where I can update all locations at once, so it isn't as much work to constantly ping between them. I might start using the blog for finished pieces, and the recipes for making said pieces, along with major events. Kinda of a repository of where the armies of Greggles is going, and where Greggles has gone! With that being said, I've got some photos of one of the projects I just finished.
Welcome my friends! This post covers the remaining battles of trust and rust, and my adepticon 2018 journey!
For my birthday this year, I got a half sized tablewar case. (to go with my mini tablewar case). I had heard it can fit in the overhead bin on most aircraft, so went about fitting a list into it. Boy those walkers are huge!
Hey my friends! Short little battle report for you today. I was able to play a few games with my good friend Scott from brushwizard on an amazing table, so snagged a few photos for you all to enjoy.
If you just want to see the photos in their full res (well half res, as I always cut the camera res in half before I upload, else it takes forever), just visit the imgur link below. Otherwise just browse the photos while I ramble on about things.
Hey everyone! Sorry for my long absence. Got a lot to catch up on over the next few posts. Hope you are all still around and watching! First off, I apologize again for lack of posting! After Nova I had a nasty case of RSI in my wrists, and couldn't paint, or clean models without some sort of pain. I decided to take an extended hobby break, and concentrated on other avenues such as playing lots of video games. I also participated in a charity tournament with Sincain40k, which I took photos of and never uploaded. (We went 2-1 in that tournament!). To start off with, lets do all the Adepticon Photos!
Hey everyone! Sorry I've been lazy with posting lately. I always have a big hobby breather after Nova where i give myself time to recover from the months of non stop painting. Been playing lots of video games (I was on a video game hiatus during the ork paint-a-thon), and just finished divinity original sin 2, and Mordor shadow of war. Todd over sincain40k told me about a charity tournament our friends Colin, Jason, and Joe were running up and Philly, so I'll be attending that in a few weeks. Check it out if you are interested! Until then, hope everyone is doing well!
Welcome my friends! Now that I had some time to recoup from the wonderful time at Nova, I can start working on my battle reports and great times I had there! First off, I'm going to put all the bat reps in a single post. I didn't go nuts taking photos of the games this year, (and some were short!), So I'll just combine them all into one mega post. Second...once again the Narrative did not disappoint. It was a wonderful time! I am also proud to say that I actually placed this year in the army painting competition...and not only placed, but took first!
The second place went to Dave's amazing freehand painted inquisition army.
With a tie for second (or third) going to Christopher Stover and his amazing Tau army! (Including a Manta!!!)
Chris's army is missing some of its components, as I didn't get a snap of it all setup. Supposedly the judging was really close, I'm glad to have competed against such beautiful painters! (These were not all the competing armies, just the top 3) Now onto the battle reports I'm sure you are all curious about. Spoiler alert, I went 4-3 for the event, and ended up 6th out of 72!
