Adepticon 2012: Part I

This is the first in a series of articles I will be writing about my experience at Adepticon 2012, from the perspective of a veteran of the game for almost two decades - that had never had the opportunity to attend a large event. How do you make it so many years in the hobby without ever attending a large event? Well here on the West Coast we didn’t have the benefit of so many years of large GT’s and independent events like the guys over on the East Coast for one, and two – I was always intimidated about going to a large event.

TFM: My Assault on Assault on Black Reach Part 14

From Stuff I Have Painted: Space Marines
If you followed me here from my other blog you may already be familiar with this series. If not, it is pretty easy to guess. I have had the AoBR marine contingent kicking around for ever, so I decided to paint them up in the colors of my favorite chapter, the Dark Angels.

Transmission from Mars: Alaitoc Rangers +

From Stuff I Have Painted: Eldar/Dark Eldar
Finished up a squad of Alaitoc Rangers yesterday. For those of you that are keeping track...these are not orks either. They didn't actually come out at all how I thought they would, which can also be said about the photography for them... The camo pattern worked way better in my head,and while I still like it, it isn't what I expected. I used the browns and purples to tie them into the base, however I was trying to keep them lighter in tone in order to contrast with the forth-coming Pathfinder squad, which I intend to be quite dark.
