Aaaand, we're back in the room

Sorry once again for the lack of updates, motivation has been lacking in that department recently, but at least my painting motivation hasn't diminished.

Right, so straight into it, lots of Richard's Thousand Sons painted as you can see:

The observant amongst you may have noticed a lack of arms on a couple of the fellows in the second pic, Richard has now provided them and so they won't be armless for long.

As far as personal projects go I'm slowly working through my plastic & pewter mountain, recently I started painting up my Last Night on Earth minis, so far I've done the survivor minis from the main game and expansion:

I intend to take better pics at a later date, now I just have 21 Zombies to paint :)

As far as gaming goes, Rich J recently introduced me to 7TV, it's a rule set I'd been looking at for a while and he really got into it after picking it up at Salute back in April. So much so in fact that he organised a campaign day at the club yesterday and it was attended by Crooked Dice Games, Ainsty Castings and Kevin Dallimore.

It was a great day and a lot of fun was had by all and although I placed 6th out of 8 in the campaign (still a lot better than I usually do at these things), I had the pleasant surprise of winning the Best Dressed Cast award (basically best painted minis), an achievement made the more special by the fact that Mr Dallimore himself picked the winner!

Go check out Rich J's Blog for the day here and marvel at my checked shirt...oh and the fantastic scenery as well ;)

Here are a some pics of the swag I purchased on the day:

Rules, Tokens and Event/Gadget more need to nick Rich's stuff any more.

My prize for winning the Best Dressed Cast award and the purchases I made with it.

Which then allowed me to spent even more money on the Ainsty stand :)

And finally a pic of my award winning cast:

The insidious oriental menace Hang Man Chan (Sinister Mystic), his evil Daughter Wu Wu Chan aka The Manchurian Mantis (Nasty Piece of Work) and Faithful Lackey Po Kynii (Faithful Lackey), accompanied by some of Hang Man Chan's Frenzied Tongs (in game terms 2 'Eavies and 4 Security Guards)

Better pictures are coming soon.

7TV is a good, fun skirmish game that lets you create a "cast" from a 70's/80's TV show to do battle over the airwaves and for me half the fun is coming up with the shows to populate the cast's with as much playing the game.

So look out for these shows straight from the 7TV archives soon:

Agents of A.U.N.T.I.E.
The Adventures of Shelton Blake
and Unidentified.

That's all for now, I think I've got a few more posts in me this month so hopefully I'll post again soon as I should have a few more things to show you :)

Take care

Great painting and I really like your winning crew of models. Love the really really old school terminators you painted for your friend as well :-)

I'm with you on wavering motivation but I've had my interest perk up a bit more recently so I will probably start writing more again soon.
