July, is Chuggging Along.

Decent month of progress, getting a little bit closer to the 100% painted on my Trollbloods goal for the year. Bought and painted a Cockatrice, which was my first Finecast model. Any bubbles or imperfections in the model were very minor or in a spot that didn't matter. Also completed my unit of Runeshapers, but pics on them will have to wait till next week. Also finished up Skarsnik and Gobbla, a Savage Orc Shaman to go with my Orcs and Goblins, and took pics of the Big Boss on Gigantic Spider.

Painted: 8
Purchased: 3 (Cockatrice, and Scattergunner Officer and Standard)

This year so far
Painted: 153
Purchased: 14

Buckeye Battles

So over the weekend me and a bunch of people from my local store went to the Buckeye Battles GT held in Delaware Ohio (where I conveniently live). Overall I came in 47th out of 78 people, my record was 2-3.

On day one my first game was against Ben Davis (27th) with a very pretty Bretonian army, which was a major loss for me. The second game was against Bryan Amburn (33rd) with a Beastmen army, which was also a major loss. The third game was against Jon Carter (37th) with Orcs and Goblins, which was a minor loss. With three losses on the first day I was feeling pretty down and was contemplating not coming back for day two, but I figured that I paid to play in the tournament so I would come back.

Day two started good with me and two other people wining the "Scavenger Hunt", so I got some cool chaos star dice. Game one on day two was versus David Lees (75th) with a Wood Elf army, it was a major victory for me. And game three was against Lewis Smith (78th) with a Warriors of Chaos, that was also a major victory for me. That day helped me restore some confidence in myself. There some really cool painted forces there which I took some pictures of which are below.

June, and I'm ready to go!

Alright got the army completely painted for the GT. Pics will come soon. It is kind of funny, now that I'm done with the army I'm at a bit of a loss on what to paint next. I'm also going to do a write up for the event, but don't know if I will be able to do a battle report.
