I did it with Gators.

On the 28th of January the good people at Irresistible Force and Allen the Press Ganger ran a tournament at the their store in Shaler Park.  This tournament was the first in Brisbane to use the new steamroller 2012 rules pack.  I took my newly painted Gator army their to try them out on the new rules pack.
The tournament was surprisingly large at sixteen players.  Normally sixteen players would not have been large numbers, but given that there were two very large tournaments running at the same time else where is Australia it was a very positive sign for the Brissy and Australian gaming scene.
With a very depleted field as most of Brisbane top gamers where either at Cancon or the Melbourne tourney I was quietly confident I would do well but I did better then I expected with three straight wins and coming out on top due to strength of schedule.
I learned a few things on the day.  It is very important to read the control points rules as they are different to last year, the other thing is that control points are still collected on the turn where a 'caster is killed.

Changing things up a bit.

After paint most of the Gator army I thought I might do something different.  I've  had some Infinity models lying around that I purchased mainly to paint, so if I don't get paint on them I am wasting a bit of money.  This guy is a sneak peak in the next project to be done after the Gators are all finished.

The Plan

I've been playing my minions since the MKII release for minions and until a few weeks ago most of the army were still in under coat paint.  It is a little embarrassing really so I've decided to get them painted.  With this I've decided to get my current gatorman army painted before I buy anymore minion models.  This means I need to paint:
  • A Gatorman posse
  • Two Croak hunters
  • A Feralgeist
  • Viktor Pendrake
  • A unit of Bog Trog Ambushers
  • And a Bull snapper.

Gatormen and the others

War Beasts

The Warlocks

It all has to start somewhere.

I've been following the blogs of a couple of guys in my local gaming club and have decided it would be good motivation to get me off my butt and get paint on my toy soldiers.  This blog will track my painting and gaming experiences. 
To start things off I am posting pics of my Hordes Gators.  This is my most current project and will be my focus for 2012.
