Fighting Fantasy Books

I have been wanting to play in an RPG however I can't commit the time required.  I have a good collection of the Warhammer Fantasy second edition books and recently picked up all the books on PDF.  Knowing that I don't have the time to play in a group I rediscovered one of my child hood favorite games, Fighting Fantasy Game Books.  These are an RPG light game, not a lot of stats and just 2D6 to play and are solo games.  You read a passage in the book and make the decision on what you want to do, then read the required passage.  These are mostly dungeon crawl books however they did release other themed books like science fiction and horror. 

I found all the Fighting Fantasy books as PDF online free to download.  I downloaded a few and started reading them satisfying my RPG itch.  Now this started a new obsession collecting the original books and some of the other series I missed out on.  I recently found a great collection on eBay and picked it up.  Now comes the hunt for the rest of the collection because I am a completest and I am going through a bit of a mid lift crisis reliving my youth. 


Ironjawz Brutes

I recently finished two more Ironjawz Brutes.  This will finish my fist unit for AoS as I continue my painting journey.  A new product that I started using is the Vallejo Metal Color paints.  These are thinned down metallic paints for airbrushes.  If you have every tired to thin down regular metallic paints it can be an issue.  Since these paints are made for an airbrush the pigment is small not to cause issues with your airbrush.  I used a brush and they go on smooth and just make painting metal so much easier.  Her is a link to the Vallejo website.  Just another tool to make painting more enjoyable.

We Have Stickers

We purchased stickers to promote our show in the community.  We are not sure how we are going to use them at this time might just give them away to our followers.  The next step is to get shirts made.

We had a slight issue with the battery dying half way through the show.  We did loose video for a bit but got it back up and running.  This is the joy of live streaming everything goes wrong and you have to fix it while being live.

Shadespire IronJawz

I recently finished all my models for my Shadespire IronJawz army.  I am real happy with how they turned out and have plans to continue painting IronJawz for AoS.  I have a collection of models sitting on my painting desk just waiting for me to get started.

What's New with Mike and Jeff March 3, 2018

I will say doing a live stream is not easy and things go wrong.  Today we had some equipment issues that delayed out set up time.  Good thing we do this show for fun, we just laughed and moved forward.

Orruks Shadespires and Age of Sigmar

I finished up three Brutes for my painting journey.  These will be used in my AoS army as the heavy hitters.  I will also use them in Shadespire to represent my Orruks after they inspire during game play.  I still need to finish my Mega boss and should have him done in the next few days. 

After I get the Mega boss finished I will start blogging more about my paint style with this army.  I am getting the base coats down using an airbrush and using some new washes.  I am also starting to get more into glazing instead of wet blending.  I just find glazing to work better for my paint style.  My plan is to continue my painting series, "Lets Talk About Painting".  For right now I just want to share photos of my finished models.
