Battlegroup in an afternoon.

So today I set out with one small task. I wanted to see how quickly I could get a battlegroup painted and table worthy. Well I have a lot of minis setting on the shelf, but I picked out my pMagnus Battlegroup. So I started off with an assembled and primed group. After 5 hours, 2 Monster energy drinks, and a smoke break I was able to produce this.

Here is a close up of Magnus. I tried to give him that AUTHENTIC BATTLE DAMAGE!!!(poor jack black voice impression there).

Here are a few Pics of the 'Jacks, The Mangler, The Talon, and lastly the Renegade.

That's how it stands. I think I did pretty well given it was done in 5 hours, but as always I welcome advice and critiques. Up next on the Factory Floor will be pKreoss battlegroup.

Summer Events

So for those of you who are not tracking all the events going on here in Texas this summer allow me to let you know.
Well this month there is obviously WarGames Con. I am sure that many of you will be in attendance and that many of you will have a blast!
But I would like to shed some light on the lesser known Events going on this summer. First I would like to let everyone know about Dallas hosting their Event called Coal and Claw ( )
I am really looking forward to this one. Its going to be a weekend of just straight gaming. The guys up in Dallas have been working super hard on getting this event together so I highly recommend if you have the means that you make it out it looks to be a blast, plus the Diplomacy Machine looks interesting. 
In September there is going to be a large Warmachine/Hordes Event going on at the Alamo GT in San Antonio. I am not sure that there is a website for it up yet, but I will be sure to post a link as soon as I am made aware of one.  
I know it doesn't fall in the Summer time frame but I would be remiss if I didn't mention Clash for the Cure this upcoming October ( ).
Anyhow there will be much more to come on these events and what Army I will be using for each. Plus I am thinking I will be adding some more posts related to all things Warmachine and Hordes.
Till next time!

Lock and Load what a Rush!

Hey all,
Its been forever yes, but having recently returned from Lock and Load I have been a bit pooped. It was a wild ride and a lot of fun. I got to play against a couple of the Guys from  Hand Cannon Online. I must say they are a decent bunch of guys. My Hat's off to you Ghool for Master Craftsman and Best Painted. Though I will admit I found it funny that you and ThorkaThor (the guys who were competing for gold were in the elevator right next to one another and didn't even know it.
Anyhow, my score card wasn't the greatest I admit, but hey McBain killed Xerxes which means that somewhere there  is a new rip in the fabric of space and time.  I recommend that anyone who wanted to go this year needs to plan for next year and get things  rolling. I am already planning for next year.
Some of the great things that came out of Lock and Load were the Colossal of course. People where standing in line for quite a while waiting for the store to open to get those things. It really didn't take  long for the people who bought them to assemble them and use them, in some cases that very same day!
Some of the other great things were a lot of people got their hands on Vlad3 which I must admit is beyond ridiculous. The Sons of Bragg for the Trolls where another welcome surprise in my opinion.
All in all it was a great weekend and a lot of fun. Hopefully I will see many of the same faces next year. I still have a couple of people who owe me a re-match!
