November 2010 Painting Points

November was a slow month between business trips, holidays and school work. I only completed one model, but that is still something.

The picture above is not the model, but let me just say that it is related to him. Once I work out some technical issues with uploading new pictures (work computer doesn't allow external drives and my wife's computer is R.I.P.), I will get my site updated with what I have been working on over the past few months.

Points Earned in November 2010: 1 Points
Total Points in 2010: 38 Points
Total Points in 2009: 34 Points

Special Thanks to Lone Pilgrim for introducing such a fun idea to the 40K blogsphere.

Fantasy Thursdays: Alternative Hot Pot

I am wanting to add a Halfling Hot Pot to my Dogs of War army. I dislike the current models from GW, so I am trying to decide on an alternate approach that can flex my converting muscles and help raise my score for future tournaments. With that goal in mind, I have three ideas:

Chaos Dwarves Steam Cannon - A converted steam weapon crewed by chaos dwarves. I am thinking the cannon would use bits from various kits (steam tank, dwarven cannon) and a good helping of plasticard rods.

Goblin Vomit Team - A river troll that has been chained and saddled by some goblin handlers. One goblin would be riding his back, while two are smacking the troll in the belly.

Skaven Death Ray - A crew of heavily cloaked skaven working a warpstone powered deathray. Unlike the vomit team or steam cannon, I am really thinking I would model this one to be stationary, more like a gun emplacement than a mobile piece of artillery.

There is a new poll available to help me decide.
