Welcome followers of Extremis Diabolus and Winds of Magic as well as anyone else who may have stumbled in. Welcome to my new home on the web. My Dice Hate Me! is going to be my focal point for everything I do or enjoy about the Wargaming Miniature hobby.
The blog is still in its early phases, there are many changes to come down the road. I am already looking into getting a banner created for the blog and once that is accomplished I will be adjusting the color scheme as well as the format.
I have already included all of the previous posts from both of my former blogs. I will also be continuing the "Motivational Monday" posts, but now I will be including motivation from any gaming system I am playing. There will still be plenty of my project updates to show off as well as discussion on various wargaming topics.
One of the new aspects I plan on adding is to become the Defender of all the Fluff Bunnies out there. While I have nothing against competitive gamers, I am not one. My first miniature gaming experience came from playing RPGs, especially D&D. The best part about this hobby for me are the epic tales that are created through game play with friends. I hope to cover much more of this as well as address some of the Fluff Bunny myths that float around the web.
Finally, I am hoping to bring on another writer or two for the blog. I have a couple of good friends who I am recruiting to begin posting their thoughts as well.
I am glad that you found the blog and I hope you will continue to stop by. Please feel free to leave comments, give advice or even criticism. I have a pretty thick hide (+5 Armor) and am not easily offended so feel free to let me know how you feel. OK now stop reading this and get back to gaming!
In case you have missed it, the guys over at Santa Cruz WarHammer are doing another community project called The Knights of Bal Timorea. This is a cool little project where we the community paint up a fantasy knight and then send it into Santa Cruz Warhammer. Once the project is complete, everyone who participated will have a chance at winning the entire painted collection.
I think this is a very cool idea and just lends itself to ones creativity. I plan on doing a little research on my family and painting up my Knight using any family crest/heraldry I may find. So head on over to Santa Cruz Warhammer and check out the project, then get onto painting your own Knight for submission!
Today I was able to finish off two of my solo units for my Protectorate of Menoth, Warmachine force.
First up is my Allegiant of the Order of the Fist. I stuck to the same basic colors I have used through the painting of the army. The whole army is starting to get a pretty consistent look to it which I what I prefer to do when painting an army.
This guy is a pretty decent brawler but has low wounds so he has to be protected until he is close to his objective. I will be picking up a few more of these guys to do a High Allegiant Amon Ad-Raza theme force.
Next up is my Vassal of Menoth. Once again I used the same colors as with the rest of the army. This model doesn't have a lot of detail but I still really like how it turned out.
This guy is almost a must have for most Protectorate armies. His special ability to allow your jack an extra attack is just too useful to not take one. The only times I don't field this model is if I am playing a theme force that doesn't allow him.
Well that is all for today, I still have a ton of Protectorate models to paint but I have a few projects ahead of them in the painting line. As always, thank you for stopping by, and please feel free to leave a comment.
Just a quick update to show off my recently finished models for my Sisters of Battle/Witch Hunters army. These were the last of my non-vehicle minis, all that is left for the army are two Penitent Engines and an Exorcist Then I will have my 2nd fully painted army. Anyway here are the models!
Well that is it for today, thank you for stopping by the blog and please feel free to leave a comment.
