So last weekend it was that time of the year again to go to the annual Eurobash again with my mate Ronald and his brother Harold. So we loaded up the car and were off to St. Niklaas (Belgium) on Friday the 29th of April. Time to play lots of games and drink loads of beer while enjoying each others company. We (the Dutch delegate) played a game of Munchkin while we waited on ze Zgermans and Brexitters.
So Saturday was the delivery day for our first ~500 points for our Escalation League. And I played my first game against another Free People army.. well a few models.
Here is my Army that I entered, where the normal troops are mostly “battleready” painted. I will go back to them to add the highlights.
See more details per unit next
So I am working furiously on my Free Guild that entered my local Escalation League, starting with 500 points.. well this is a bit over that.
I managed to finally finish off my Free Guild General on warhorse and rebased my Bright Battlemage. YES!! I have made the plunge into rebasing. It feels liberating and so I have rebased some of my Swordsmen (now Free Guild Guard with sword and shield) and made some nice progress, almost all base colours and some washes done.
So these last weeks have been busy where possible. As possible as can be during Christmas and New Years and having the kids stay up late and stuff.
I had a great holiday none the less, but it is time to start picking up my hobby in a bit faster pace again. So trying to stay away from gaming more. (looking at you Lego Dimensions!)
So let’s see what I did:
So I played 2 more games, 1 game was not battlereport material for a number of reasons. But the latest is. I wanted to try out a Warrior Brotherhood battalion 2k list and Piotr, one of the local players at my GW store, picked up the challenge. Not knowing I was going to deploy the battalion. He used a pretty fluffy list but in the end it was still an entertaining battle. Played 18 december 2016.
Anyway let’s see how Arturo faired, now without his trusted mount.
It’s a bit late, but I want to wish everyone a great Christmas and a happy new year. At least for some you should still enjoy the Christmas holidays.
Normally most and certainly not us celebrate Christmas with presents as we have Sinterklaas already. But this time we did a few presents and the little one was really surprised 🙂
Anyway, due to the generosity of Santa I got my work cut out for me.
I first finished building the Prosecutors from the Start collecting set and with my ne batch of magnets I also finished my 5 Liberators and Lord-Celestant on that part. Then started working on the Celestant-Prime and finished building it in 3 sub-assemblies.. well 4 with the base.
And now working on the Dracothian Guard. I’ll see if I can magnetize the weapon options on them.
adjusted the collection thread with my new additions here
A small update, this one was finished (in this state) for over a week now, but I finally decided to take pictures anyway as I will wait till Free People will get fleshed out to make a decision on how to go on with bases.
So without further ado here is Janus Dousa Bright Battlemage
Some more angles next
