Straight in with a big general update from me

I’ve got tons to share and I want to update the blog more with pics/ info and wargaming ‘stuff’ I think may be of interest to other people.

I’ve just got back from Turkey with some of the other bloggers.

Instead of painting I started reading ‘The Sundering’

Bn5hv2dIQAI4XFh

It’s an awesome book so far with tons of info not only about Elves but also Dwarves, Shaggoths, Beastmen and other fantasy creatures.

While on holiday I may have bought a few Titans from eBay

and also ordered 7th ed + Fateweaver as I plan on having a small Daemon unbound force consisting of 28 Screamers and Fateweaver

I also arrived back home to lots of goodies

which I need to fit into the Warhammer room which is starting to fill up again

Month 3 from the Asur (Big update!)

I come with good news; month three for the Asur was a good month with some much needed reinforcements and numbers!

First up are five Shadow Warriors. They’re lovely models but rubbish rules. That said they will make a good support choice for Alith Anar I hope.

Next up is a lovely model from The Russian Alternative

I also managed to paint two bolt throwers but not the crew. For these I used the airbrush for the brown which worked pretty well.

And lastly I bought the The LOTR Eagle Plastic Kit which are beautiful models and much better than the metal ones (and cheaper!).

Unfortunately month four wasn’t a good month; I gave into temptation and bought an Imperial Knight and wanted to spend some time on it so I passed on doing any fantasy this month unless I got time right at the end.

Good morning,

I’m very happy to announce that I’ve now completed month 2 of #ATO9G

I’ve also been enjoying the Twitter action.

If you’re a gamer and you haven’t already joined Twitter, I fully recommend it.

You get to see tons of painted models (that haven’t been painted by GW staff) and you also get great encouragement as well.

Also it’s really nice when you get people clicking ‘favorite’ or ‘retweet’ your pics.

Month 2 in pics

This pic got me 4 retweets and 5 favorite

Which I finished last night and got 6 retweets and 3 favourite

As outlined when I originally planned month 2, I’m now going to start work on my first block of 10 Sisters of Avelorn but I won’t get to start any work on them till next week =-(

I’ll keep you all posted on how I get on.

Good afternoon from the Asur,

Month 2 is looking good so far with some valuable painting time clocked this weekend.

Alith Anar is looking finished and the Loremaster is at the half way house

I must admit that I didn’t realise Alith Anar is only £8.20 and still metal from GW – I would fully recommend this character to anyone with an Elf army, he’s great fun to paint and the rules are half decent.

I’m also starting to teach myself about making the painting easier by not focusing on 100 different colours and picking out every detail.

The red spot colour is also a lot of fun and I’m really starting to get the hang of painting it.

I also wanted to share this pic the wife forced me to take.

I came up with a quote “Just like a Hellpit ‘the cat’ moves in a random direction and f*cks everything it touches

Until next time.

Month 2 for the Asur – @Simonroberts87

Welcome to 2014 and more importantly Month 2 of #ATO9G.

With Month 1 complete for the Asur, I have been thinking about what I can paint for month 2.

In short, I am going to double…. yes double the amount of models I need to paint – last month it was 1 😉

I’m going for some characters this month as I have them sat on my painting table and I really like both miniatures (and the rules they come with).

I have also included an ‘optional’ unit which comes down to whether or not I have time to paint them, if not I will at least start the unit off and then set them as a month 3 project to complete.

You can follow all the action by following me on Twitter

Asur Dragon Up-Date

Good morning,

Bit of an up-date from the Asur.

Talinda is definitely coming together.

Will be done before Christmas (I hope).

The thing that is really spurring me on is the responses I’m getting on Twitter. My last pic got 3 retweets and 6 favourites
