Sorry for the delay in posts, school and life is still kicking my butt. But never fear! Smells Like Wargaming is here! I’ve haven’t been shirking on my wargaming duties either. I just finished my…8th?…yes 8th…Tervigon since I’ve started SLW.
I must say, I’m rather happy with this one, the paint scheme came out perfectly, especially on the birthing sacs, and the snow really compliments the carapace. I didn’t have any fishing line on me though, so the dripping nasty goo is missing.
You can see how lengthening the body makes it much larger than a standard Carnifex.
“ARGH!!! SHOOT IT!!!”
I always model my Tervigons with the Adrenal Gland and the Toxin Sacs. Most players have trouble noticing Xenos upgrades, so its WYSIWYG for the most part. Plus, if the Tervigon gives Gants around it Furious Charge and Poison if she has them, why not model it on the birthing sacs!
Got that Gant done in 15 minutes or so, I really hate the Snap-Tite models for painting. The Gant is more of an extra surprise more than anything else, we like to do some extra stuff sometimes here at SLW!
And a scale shot. I love building these things, I don’t think I’ve ever had one I wasn’t super happy with. I do think next time though, I may just pick up a Trygon Torso, it may make that sculpting unnecessary.
Also, if you’re watching the Facebook page, you’ll see that Durango has finally gotten a hobby shop. The store was actually in Pagosa Springs, about an hour east of us, but Durango’s bigger, so it makes more sense for the shop to be here. My friend and I got to try out Dreadfleet (whooped his butt!), and I may be painting the store copy….ooooo. The store is called Game Space, is ran by a really nice gentleman, and, best of all, has some really good space for gaming. At least 3 tables, if not 4, lots of extra room, and a Television (blaring Denver’s loss to Detroit last week…ugh..)
Anyways, if anyones in the Four Corners area, come up and say hi! I’ve got some pieces on display and some fliers up, and as long as I don’t have class or some arbitrary assignment as a result or class, I’m always down to hang and talk some gaming!
Speaking of gaming, I was given word that the gaming group that’s already showed up at the shop has an Apocalypse game planned for Thanksgiving weekend. Now, since I’m not going home for the holidays, I was thinking the Alpha Legion and their unsuspecting Guard allies would show up for the battle! However, I’d like to have something besides a Baneblade to putt around the board.
Arvus? Sold it.
Brass Scorpion? Poor college student….
DOOMSDAY DEVICE *shade falls over eyes*
I’ve got some basic ideas, something either hidden or unsuspecting, something that would convey Alpha Legion AND destruction.
It’s a start…
Next up is some Khadorian Winter guard and Angels Encarmine for my boy Snake Eyes over at Table Top War! Then maybe some time for my own stuff!
