    I starting adding stones to my Bull Centaurs bases and tidied up all of the grey drybrushing overspill onto the black armour pieces.

    They're ready for final drybrushing of the armour and other details, while it's gonna be Astrongranite on the base to prepare for more fallen ash.

    Worked on some terrain. I'm slowly starting to build up a desert set made of scrap cardboard and glue-soaked tissues. I may cut a couple houses and ruins out of cardboard as well. We'll see.

    Finished the weapons for four of five Frostgrave Knights. The other one is going to be a musician or standard bearer, so he's waiting on bits I don't have with me. I also painted my first terrain piece and glued together another one.

    Put the next layer on a couple pieces of terrain, then plowed through some skaven I had sitting around. I'm trying to get stuff off my table so I can get on to my next project, whatever I decide it should be.

    So that was 10pm -6:30 AM today, with a 3 hour nap in the middle.

    This morning I've removed sprue gates and cleaned a mantic games Abyssal Chroneas for my commission client. That includes mold lines, flash (not the worst I've ever seen, not the best either)

    WGA Conquistadors and I'm guessing WGA Late Romans - the latter I assume for your alternative universe Ancient Europe with the Romans having future tech?

    Didn't expect you to get into Mantic's Ratkin range, but then you do have some Skaven already, so those will give some more variety to your horde, yes-yes!

    context photo for above:

    Disclaimer: NOT MY WORK PLEASE SEE ABOVE QUOTE CONVERSATION FOR CONTEXT.
    I had a completely well oiled post written out, complete with all the bells and whistles and all the formatting.

    Then I had a network error on the machine that I was typing on and I've lost all of that now. I will retype it later but here's the cliff notes version:

    Confluence of factors caused me to start building a kitchen soup Army out of historical miniatures. I'm doing a bunch of conversions because why not.

    Inspired by this guy araden on Facebook. Context photo below.

    Gonna send them in tonight!

    In other news, I'm now planning out my conversion of a Chaos Dwarf Siege Giant.

    I brought my Astorum titans to a really enjoyable day of Adeptus Titanicus at a local event.

    Three games of 1500pts each. I lost the first game hands down, losing all of my titans to knights and a melee reaver from a Legio Mortis Ferrox Maniple. The second was much closer against a custom legio (even ran a warlord titan across the board over the course of two turns), though I lost by 5 points on the primary objective of having titans near the opponent's board edge. The third game however - against a Legio Solaria Mandatum Maniple - was an overwhelming victory at a crossroads.

    Overall, I won 9th at the event out of 16 players through points accumulated over the course of the event.

    Sadly don't have photos of my games, unfortunately.
