Thoroughly enjoying my new fancy drybrushes!

Another game of Warhammer Underworlds tonight! I played my murder-ladies for the first time (Morgwaeth's Blade-coven) and sadly didn't win. I can definitely see the potential though, and there were some very unlucky dice rolls at a few critical points. They're pretty sneaky as befits aelves, keen to play a few more games with them.

Oh man, I just did my first ever glaze for miniature painting (I thinned out Flesh Tearers Red with Contrast Medium in a 1:8 ratio), and hot damn am I a convert. Look at how rich that red looks now!

We played another game of Warhammer Underworlds tonight, the vile Wurmspat versus Myari's Purifiers. I was coming first right up until the very last end phase, then Kristina scored two objectives to put her ahead by ONE glory, and she'd killed one of my fighters thus rendering six additional glory out of reach for me! I'm not sure how I feel about the Wurmspat's current deck, I think I want to make it a bit more mobile and combat-focused.

And that's Morgok's Krushas done! Proper DSLR photos will be coming on Wednesday once it's not actively raining so I can varnish them.

I know the bases of miniatures aren't the most exciting things, but I'm seriously stoked with how these came out and wanted to photograph them separately before the miniatures themselves are glued on. I immediately thought of snow and ice when I saw the bases, rather than dirt and rubble, and it's excellent to have something a bit different! (The feet are molded to the bases if you're wondering).

My creative refresh day was a success! I always forget how much slower it is painting with regular paints as opposed to the Contrast ones though... the brown metallic-looking bits are the same darker silver underneath, I started at 9am and it look me until about 2:45pm to finish doing just those silver bits. All the rest of the colours were done from then until I finished at 5:30pm! I'll finish them off over the weekend.

We went over to a friend's place today and played our first game of four-player Warhammer Underworlds! The two friends who'd never played it before ended up coming first and second, haha. I played the Wurmspat for the first time and lost horribly, the dice gods SHAT on me, both for rolling my own dice and having my successful attacks all defended against. Still had a lot of fun though!

We're doing a "creative refresh day" at work during March, where you can expense up to $50 for some hobby you enjoy, and you take a day to just... do that hobby, rather than working. So naturally I ordered yet another warband for Warhammer Underworlds and will be painting them next Friday! (I ordered this yesterday just before midday, it arrived today just after midday. 😮)

The Wurmspat are coming along nicely!
