A Manly Doll House- Armoury and Guard House.

Best doll house ever!
Every so often I get fed up painting miniatures and want to experiment with some terrain.

I've always been fascinated with terrain that has lots of little details in it.  Most of the time I never bother detailing terrain- after all, it's the miniatures that are the stars and they take the most time.  Still, a few simple techniques with an airbrush don't take too much time and the effect is great!

I even did furniture!

Marauder Heavy Flamer no. 2

Another chance to try NMM!
... And not doing that well!

Another one for the practice records.

It was interesting painting a second version of a model I've already painted.  I improved on the skin- he looks definitely less pale and his armour turned out better.  Improvement!  Victory!!!

Marauder: Shotgun

I like to keep this handy... for close encounters.
Good for clearing out rooms in active turn!

I enjoyed painting this guy the most.  Easy weapon, not too much skin and the armour turned out quite well!

Marauder: Molotok

Would you like AP rounds with that?
I'm of two minds as to how useful this guy will be.  A high burst AP weapon is great (especially in a link team of 5!) but with only one wound and limited range he can be easily taken out.

Marauder: Sniper Rifle

Big suppressor is best suppressor
The other Marauder with MSV1, he will be paired with the Marauder HRL for some good ARO action.

He is only armed with a normal Sniper rifle though, meaning he just does Shock damage.  No double action rounds or armour piercing rounds for him.

Marauder: Heavy Rocket Launcher

MSV1... for those ALEPH snipers.
And don't forget fire damage for those pesky ODD enemies.

This man was the first to get a lick of paint on.  Forward deploy, fire damage and ODD- with an extra burst from Fireteam Haris (or Core)- made him a mandatory figure for Ariadna.

USAriadna: Fire Team Core: Marauders

Let it be known that the planet broke before the Guard did.
It's been a long time between posts- such is life for the average hobbyist!

That being said, a great many things have happened- the Emperor is dead and so is Warhammer 40K 7th Edition.  To commemorate such a momentous event I have cheekily painted my own version of Kasrkin- USAriadna Marauders.

This is the first of a 6 part series on the Marauders.  They'll be taken out to prove the power of their MSV1 binoculars so stay tuned!

Space Hulk: Brother Claudio.

Come here for a hug, Mr. Genestealer.
With CanCon2017 out of the way, it's time to get through my backlog on my desk.

A lengthy campaign has begun!

USAriadna Goes to Cancon 2017

Its time to defend that constitution.
Having whelped this 300 point army, it was time to take it to the big leagues (for me!).

I paid for a ticket and travelled to Canberra for CanCon 2017, Australia's "Nationals" for Infinity and what looked like a tonne of other game systems out there.

By this stage I had played seven games with USA... eight if you count that battle report from 2015... but I was dead keen to enter the beauty pageant!

And if getting punished in 5 games over two days against the best in the country is what it takes to get there then by Jove that's what I'll do....

The Unknown Ranger

There's only one God, Ma'am... And I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that.
Limited edition GenCon2016 model- the Unknown Ranger.

I haven't even looked at his stats that deeply but he has Chain of Command and is thus a specialist!  Sadly he is only one wound (so he won't play like an Avenger) but he won't be OP!

Ariadna: Family Photo

One big happy family.
I haven't actually put up a family photo of my Ariadna... so here it is.

There are a few figures missing (getting varnished) but it looks very impressive after such humble beginnings.

One day I might even play a game of 300 points vanilla Ariadna!

Grunt- Paramedic

I'm a specialist... really.
In tidying up the list for the next tournament, I decided to paint another Grunt as a specialist.

He was a straight forward paint job- refining some of the techniques I had learned from the past dozen or so Ariadna models I've been practicing on.

Airborne Ranger- SMG

Walking on.
First post for the new year!  It's been hectic as usual but I finally got to fit in some time for hobbying.

This is the first of the backlog of models I'm churning out this year.
