We're currently updating the site and a few things may run slow or not as expected at the moment. Give us a day or two to get everything sorted out and changed up if you would.

One of the new things you'll see about are the 'sticky notes' which you will occasionally see from the site Admins if something important shows up or is newsworthy, or if you happen to be in one of our many beta testing groups giving you an additional heads up when something new needs to be looked at or sorted.

You can send these amongst yourselves as well if you wish, just don't abuse it. 

Thanks for your patience!

The new year has begun, and I´ve been busy with #TOMB3! In this post I will show my painting progress, and rant on a bit on random topics that are Marcus related.

First off I noticed that Marcus has another theme, besides from beasts. Namely butts! I think this is the crew for which I painted most butts.

Second, it;s lovely how much painting variation there is in this crew. Everything is so unlike the others, so I had lots of experience painting. Trees, frogs (silurids), hairy beasts, less hairy beasts, etc. I really like it. The model I am most proud of, is my Rattler. I think she turned out very pretty, and its the one model in my entire collection I spent most time on. The colour scheme is really striking!

Another thing I really liked to paint where the silurids. I did them in a froggy painting style. As I painted the two seperate they have a bit other tone/colour, but I am growing fond of that!

Then the Waldgeists. Really loved them too! Tried to paint glowing eyes, which didnt work out too well. I think they look really forresty :) Again I painted these in different tones; not every tree is the same colour after all!

Another MVP is the Cerberus. In game she is THE beast of the pack. There hasn't been a game so far where the opponent wasn't suprised at how good it is. I love her, and also because she is painted in the colour and pattern of one of our cats! I did my best painting the eyes, and after doing that for this model I vowed to (at least try to) paint all the eyes on my models from now on. It gives so much character!

Well, for me those where the highlights of painting this crew so far. Now onto the models I had less fun painting.

Molemen: I really like them ingame, and they are little ugly models. Just as I like them, as I want them to look like naked molerats. Who are ugly as well. Think these turned out quite nice!

Painting Marcus I wanted to do a really dark skintone. I couldnt get a foto showing it well, as I feel the picture somehow turned out too dark. Still I think it could use more highlights, but I couldnt get them right. After trying for some days I thought I might as well keep him like this. Painting dark skin is hard!
The Jackalope is a funny little model! I googled some nice inspiration, and think I got an original painting scheme which looks pretty. He;s a funny thing. One game he killed a Death Marshall on the charge on turn one :D
Myranda is a bit of a bland model imo. She has nothing interesting going on. Just a squatting lady in an ugly robe. Rushed the paintjob a bit on her. Ingame she is amazing though! (unless turned into Cojo, then she dies the same turn or the turn after).

Then the Blessed and Cojo. They are the same category for me: unfun to paint. I found that this style of model (furry but bulky) is something I don't like to paint, nor am I any good at it. I am really eager to try out the Blessed in game. She should be amazing! Cojo on the other hand... I don't like his paintjob, the chest on the model isn't right this way and there's an ugly blotch at the backside. But I am going to paint other stuff first before I might repaint him. Trying him out a few times in the games now I feel like I will almost never field him anyway.

So there's lots of pictures! Lots of fun to paint, and learned a lot, improving my painting schemes.

 

For the games I played: I tried to make the other limited upgrade work for Marcus. You know, the one that doesn't give +3Wk of +2dg. Well, every game (5+) I wished I had taken the other upgrade, sadly. But even then I won! Some things I learned include: don't engage a librarian with Marcus. That thing strips all suits, and that makes it really hard for him to get away/be really effective. Marcus also is quite squishy, so I used a lot of soulstones for damage prevention with him. Cojo seems plain bad, and the Cerberus is insanely good. The entire crew is fast, which is a nice switch from Ressers as well! In a week I will attend a tournament here where I want to try out my Marcus, so we'll see how he does in a competative environment :)

Comments and feedback are more then welcome! I want to learn to paint better, mostly, and have a Rogue Necromancy and last of the molemen, silurids and waldgeists primed up. Also a Dawn Serpent to round up the beasts. I feel my Marcus pool is quite complete then.

Thanks for reading!
