Power Armoured Paint: The Lazy Persons Guide to Painting Space Sharks

Time for another painting guide here at the Vault!  I've just finished my first Carcharodons Astra power armour unit so capturing the painting recipe will help me remember the details for the future (and may also be of interest/use to fellow Space Shark players).

As per usual my schemes are all about getting models to a decent table top standard in quick time; helpful if you have to bust through a whole armies worth of models.

That's a lot of Dakka!

Frostgrave: Acererak and The Ragged Court

The First Founding Frostgrave campaign ("The Rune Stone Race")  kicks off in a couple of weeks, and with bonus XP on offer for having both a painted war band and a back story I've been spending some hobby time on mine. I'd be setting a bad example (since I'm running the campaign) if I didn't qualify for the bonuses.

As an aside today (4 March) happens to be Gary Gygax Day, so I've drawn inspiration from the classic S1 Tomb of Horrors; I present Acererak and The Ragged Court:

And the terrain collection keeps on growing

The hobby butterfly visited once more, and this week's hobby time found me casting my eye around my extensive collection of Unpainted Stuff looking for something I could finish in a single painting session.

I bought a number of terrain pieces from Amera during their Black Friday sale last year, and I had painted one of them using standard brush techniques:

First Founding Mayhem League: Results Post 1

A bunch of games have been played in First Founding's 40K league, and the inaugural results table has been published.  It's the standings as of week 2 and half and a bit of the league; I suspect these posts aren't going to be particularly regular, but rest assured they are accurate (right Dave?)

Frostgrave: Revisiting the Rune Stone Race

Welcome back to the Vault for another installment of my hobby ramblings!

I'm finally starting up my long thought about Frostgrave campaign at First Founding next month. I'm planning a couple of demo/introduction sessions and then we'll be getting into the campaign proper!

I posted a draft of my campaign ideas in a previous post; but I wasn't too happy with some of the rules and ultimately with how the campaign will finish. This post is therefore an updated set of campaign rules which I hope will be simpler to use, and more fun for the participants!
