Well a few of us here have had our eyes on Dust for quite while now.  We dove in and purchased a First Edition Dust Tactics starter box.  They have been sitting on my shelf of mini's for quite awhile now.

With the release of Dust Warfare not too long ago, are interest was piqued just a bit... then it fell away again.

Then one day not too long ago my buddy scotty decided to throw some paint on one of his American Walkers From that point on I decided I oughta give it a go as well.

I decided that this game due to its bendy plastic figures would be my mindless painting army.  Essentially I would paint the troops up really quickly using basecoats, shades, and one highlight to finish up.

With the walkers I would begin practicing with my newly acquired airbrush, and try some different weathering techniques.

The whole goal of this project... Get stuff painted quickly!

So here are a few pics:

Old Witch of Khador

Finished this one up as a commission for a local. It just so happens to be the third time I have painted this duo, so I cant say I was terribly enthused about it. But I pushed through(eventually) and got em done.

 More pics after the jump.......

An Apology and Some WIPs

Alright, the Holidays have come and gone, and it has been nearly a month since I have posted anything up here on the GG...

I have to apologize... I always seem to think that during the holidays I will have more time for hobbies, yet every year it seems I have a whole lot less free time than I imagined.  So again, I am sorry for my slacking.

Now, here are a few WIPs I have been working on over the holidays.

First Up....

Quest For Fully Painted: Panda Part II

Well, it's been along time since I updated this challenge from myself. A little embarrassing to say the least as I initially posted the challenge and since then several of my garage mates here have fulfilled their own challenges by becoming fully painted.  During the interim I have moved states and had a hectic schedule to say the least. Also of note is that the Beta rules for Steamroller 2013 have been slightly leaked all over the interwebs and I no longer have to worry about Reinforcements! That's a bonus.  On the other hand I have aggreed to the Paradox Plunge and will be championing The High Reclaimer in competitive events!!

I'm not sure what I'm going to include in his list but I do know I need to stick with one of my other casters or I'm probably going to be painting a whole lot of new stuff. I'm choosing to stick with Vindictus instead of the Harbinger as he is my favorite caster even though she is a stronger caster. I'll stick with the list I have with him currently and build towards a new High Reclaimer list when the rules are finalized.

I have finally set up my paint station again and am burning away on all the models I've been neglecting.

So I've managed to bust out quite a bit! so lets get with the breakdown!

Models finished since last time:

Exemplar Errants
refinished 2 X Vassals
and most importantly
2 X Reckoners!
