Hastings Redux Quick Update

I'd be remiss to at least post a couple of shots from this past weekend. I have a lot of shots and will do a proper recap as I get some time.

Adepticon Quick Update

Updating my last post after the weekend. Great to see folks I haven't seen for a while and catch up. It was an awesome (and tiring) weekend.

Thurs PM | Hail Caesar Match Play
-running Saxons, I have the most rudimentary understanding of HC.
>Fun Game, maybe not my cup of tea though. Went 1 and 1.  Good time for sure though.

Fri AM | Mid-War FOW
-running a freshly painted Grenadierkompanie.
>Toooooo Many Russians for me to deal with my little in Comparison german force (played soviets all three games) Went 1-2, won best axis force though, whooot!

Fri PM | Hastings Redux Mega game
-GM'ing and playing Saxons. Close to 20K of minis on 4' X 16' of sweet modular terrain. Check it out if you can and say hello.
>This was freaking awesome. Mark made a wonderful table for us the fight over. The Saxons won the day (and not because I was GM'ing ;) ). Looking forward to next years big game already.

Sat | WAB Singles
-running freshly painted [and as yet unused] Medieval British. What could go wrong.
>Well and lot could go wrong. Went 1-1-1.  Good times and fun games each time for sure. Need to revise the list a bit and I think they will fair better.

Sun | WAB Doubles
-defending our title with Shawn Welte. We are running Saxons/Vikings.
>Didn't win overall, but did pull off Best General with Shawn.  Huzzah!

I have tons of pictures that I wll post up over the upcoming days.

Thanks for looking.

Adepticon 2013 WAB Hastings Redux Terrain | Final Update

Final update on terrain for Hastings Redux (more WIP, etc. over on Mark Sommer's Baddogz Engineering). This panel is actually not going to be used in the gaem, but is one of two additional boards Mark made to complete the terrain set and give more variety for terrain layouts. This river section will match up with the main river board already shown in prevoius posts.

Thanks for looking

Medieval English Finished | WAB

Whew...
Finished my Medieval British for Adepticon WAB Singles.  A bit rushed, but they'll do for tabletop IMHO.  I really like the look of the army overall, I may have to do a War of the Rose or English army with the Perry Plastics down the road.
Anyhoo, all figures are Perry's aside from one or two claymore castings figs that snuck in.
Technique: Block Color, Min-Wax, highlight and...Bob's Your Uncle

Here are some shots of the army on my cheesy carrying tray, be kind.
