I had a pretty good week where I managed to lay the last touches on my greatswords moving them off the “still working on pile” and getting a colorscheme testmodel done for my Tau sept.
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.
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
..but I’m still working on stuff and have played a few more games. Summer holiday was slow due to kids staying up longer and of course our holiday spent abroad was also a hobby stop for me.
Meanwhile I entered my local GW shops Path to Glory campaign with my own Free People warband.
Volkmar the Grim has rallied his most holy warriors and sailed down the river Reik with a sacred vow on his lips. His destination is the troubled realm of Sylvania, home to terrors beyond imagining, and lair of the infamous Count Mannfred, an undying fiend who must be destroyed at all costs.
Heading south, Volkmar bade his men find the Vampire and burn his body to ash. By tracking down and interrogating the count’s lieutenants and cat’s paws, the crusaders could find their way right to the von Carstein’s door. The Witch Hunter von Korden is the first to locate his quarry; a Necromancer thrall of Mannfred’s known as Ghorst. As von Korden and his men push deeper into the grave-strewn wilderness, the dead stagger through the mists to meet them…
