WIP: Assorted Tau Stuff

Hi gang, it's been a while, eh? Both Trip and I have been of the hobby train for a while now, but we still talk about playing every once in a while. A couple weeks ago we were going to get together to play some games with the new starter sets. We'd only be able to play with the contents of the box unit-wise, but could kit them out however we wanted up to 500 points. The games didn't end up happening, but it did get me motivated a bit.

The only army I was close having the proper units built for that was my Tau. I was missing a crisis suit and a lot of drones. Figured I was WAY overdue in painting up some more drones so I could play everything WYSIWYG and have been limping by with minimal weapon options for my crisis suits as well. No more!

One quiet Saturday night and, voila. I've got some new Tau stuff happening. These just need the wash and maybe some highlighting if I'm feeling eager beaver.

Hope to get some new stuff up soon!

3rd Anniversary and 200K views!

During our down time, the Hammer's 3rd birthday silently came and went last month, but the views keep piling up!

We want to say, "thank you" to everyone who visits and comments. We hope our articles are informative, helpful and inspirational. And although it's been a while since we've posted regularly, we're not down for the count - in fact, I've just recently dusted off my hobby table...

WIP: Alpha Legion- Knocking the Dust Off

Finally found some inspiration to break out the brushes after a long time off. Hooked up the airbrush and booth and batch painted up some bare heads for my troops.

I'm definitely rusty. A couple of the heads are coming out pretty well, but the others...yeesh. Bare human heads have never been my strength. I've got my best attempts and maybe my worst, both in this batch. The Vallejo skin tone set is a nice addition though. I think I'll get better results moving forward.

Where you at, Trip? Let's fire this thing back up!

You may have noticed we've been a little... absent lately. Yup. That happened. Trip's got a new job, I've got a new house with a wicked commute, it's all conspiring against our regular twice-weekly posting regimen. We've thought about shutting it down, but I think we both still enjoy the hobby and posting about it. For the time being, just consider us to be on hiatus and we'll get posts up if and when we've got something meaningful to say.

Hope you're all doing great, and we'll look forward to talking Little Plastic Men with you in the near future.

Was incredibly lucky to get to travel to Stockholm for work this week. Beautiful city, and at least one fantastic game store!

WIP: The Emperor's Champion Kitbash

Made a kitbashed version of the Emperor's Champion... and then realized he's only for Black Templars.
