Lucky Duck

This is my Forgeworld Thunderbolt. I'm not posting it for any particular reason, but as Steven Colbert once said about Anduril, Flame of the West, "I just want to remind everyone that I have this.

I painted this a bunch of years back for use in a 40k-scale game of Aeronautica Imperialis that we put on at all the U.S. Games Days. Forgeworld even cast us up a bunch of giant Auronautica bases for the event. Unfortunately, after surviving four Games Days and shipment in between each,  most of the other planes that were painted for this event were destroyed by the useless, toothless hucklebucks at the Games Workshop warehouse in Memphis. I guess mine was packed right in the center of the crate because somehow it survived. I salute to the fallen heroes that didn't make it back!

The Golden Gruhalas

Dropzone Games her in MD had their Grand Opening bonanza this weekend and had a nice litle painting contest to go along with it. Originally I was only going to enter a single model, but once I saw just how good the competition was, I covered my bases and entered all three categories. I think they ended up getting around sixty entries and some of them were really dang nice. The Cadians that won best squad were fan-freakin'-tastic. I got a spiffy plaque for this old thing, happy dance.

Keep up the good work, Tom. If GW could make stores like Dropzone, their retail operations might actually turn a profit. Har har.

Update: Here are all of the contestants and the winners.

New Orks

Long time no update! I got some time to hobby last weekend and I put together a couple new guys for my slowly growing Blood Axe gang. I intended to make my Kommando Kan look a bit less silly than the stock Killa Kan Models. As you can see, I failed miserably. I like the lil' fella though. Mega Armored Kommando is just plain badass, if I do say so myself.
