It's been almost two months since the TOMB3 has started, and I had a slow start. But I am getting up to steam now! Last week I played my first game (against Lucius) and I am finishing up my paintjobs on the Cerberus, Silurid and Jackalope. So this blog entree is about that.
First some words about the test game. I played against Lucius, the guy playing him quite new to the master (as I am to Marcus). Due to time we didn't finish the game, but we both knew how it would end: total annihilation of the Guild forces. If there's one thing that stuck with me from that game, it's that the Sabertooth Cerberus is a beast! (pun intended). He mauled Dashel to death on his first attack after a leap, so had 1 AP left after doing what she should do. I love that cat, so she went higher on the painting list. I was running the list I posted in my previous blog entree, and got a good general feel for the crew. There's lots of things I could have done better. A couple of things I liked: Marcus with Pack Leader is awesome (so many free attacks its silly), Cerberus is hawt (ofc!) and with all the unimpeded forests are my friend. Didnt get a good feel for the Silurid, so will give that thing more tries, especially as I am quite proud of my painting job on it.
So that brings me to my painting. I decided for this crew that everything should have an example picture or inspiration to give me ideas for the colour scheme. The Cerberus is obviously one of our cats, and turned out much better then I thought she would (after base coats it looked horrible). The Silurid is my pride of the crew so far. I really tried hard to paint it like a frog, including the yellow line across the flanks. I will have to paint the cat's rock, and then do the basing. Otherwise they are done. That brings me about halfway the basic crew, next up to paing will probably be Myranda or the Waldgeist. Want to save Marcus for last, and do a real dark (close to black) skin colour, as I think that's very pretty.
I did notice that my phone isnt taking good pictures. When I finish the basic crew I will ask someone to make some good pictures for me so I can share them
Still loving the naked molerat. I think it sees Marcus as it's queen
