Origins 2014 Zone Mortalis Kill Team training grounds

Ok, with the Adepticon whiplash subsiding I am looking to the next big project of the year....Zone Mortalis! Yep, I am building a zone mortalis board for Origins 2014. Since I cannot be in attendance this year I am designing a set piece table that will pit 4 Ordo Xenos Deathwatch team against each other and the abandoned asteroid mine DC/RT-D 2006 as a training excercise...Little do they know the defenses have been partially reactivated by the machine spirit of the facility....and let's just say the machine is MAD at being left to drift for centuries....(30/30-150 if I've ever seen it).

These are just a few layout shots before I begin to cut in foam hallways and rooms around the Mechanicus facility hallways. The layout is hard to see here, and I mean to be that way...sorry, no maps ahead of the game!!

Think of all of this as recessed into the board and you get a better idea of the layout....I'll post more after I get the foam laid in this weekend.

Creature Caster Kickstarter

The kickstarter is live and was fully funded in 16 minutes. AS of the time of this writing there were very few early bird packages left. Go check them out! If you remember Ultraforge, this is the sculptor and owner from that company. The work here is stellar. I backed them and I think you should too!

Adepticon 2014 Picture overflow!

Well another Adepticon is in the books, and I have to say it was another stellar  show. We raised our game and got a little props for it. Still no award, but we are closing in.

Short round  up, Team Boltgun's Battle Brothers placed in the top 15 of 120 teams for appearance and theme at the 40k Team tournament.

The top winners were really eye catching! While I didn't get picture of all of them ( I didn't have time to stand in line for the Slaaneshi peep show) here are a few. The pink and orange Tyranids were the over all winner with the floating hive ship.

This last one is from the Guard Tower, Cocomelli and crew. They decided to bring their  "A" game and go Cosplay.

The tournament was well run as always, and the field had a good spread of armies, but there were still maybe 40% Tau/Eldar in various combos. We played Necrons with  multiple flyers the first three rounds in a row....which sucked since we didn't think  there would be more than one or two there and didn't prepare for those air-force style lists.Still, we rounded out the weekend well with not a single jerk in sight! A nice change of pace I have to say. I need to stop and say hello to The maelstrom guys, team destruction of ultramar, and the silver snakes. Excellent times guys!

Nick and I took best appearance at the Malifaux team tournament on Friday. That won me a pair of avatar models, so look for work on those crews in the future.

I need some rest, but I will go back through the tournament and my experience in detail this week, right now I just need sleep. 8 hours over 4 days doesn't cut it!
