Kingdom of Denmark Surface Assault Group - Unboxing

 I picked this up recently to paint as a commission for someone. I love the Asgard Carrier and the appreciate the airships for the Danish. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Asgard Carrier, I really like the little details on the underdeck of this carrier.

Fafnir Light Skyfortresses. Really like these models too!

Magni Assault Blimps, Asgard tower, Tyr Assault Craft and SAS tokens.

 I have been debating on a color scheme for these guys. As of now I am thinking of a dark blue with grey and white stripes and some red accents to tie in the danish flag. I will definitely be planning to do a cross on the Asgard carrier deck. Looking forward to getting these painted.

Thanks for reading!

Long time no see!

Hello all,
Its been a little while since I last posted. I must apologize for that. My youngest decided to take a month or so break from sleeping. The sleep deprivation definitely decreased my drive to type up posts. I still made some progress painting my list of mini's but not as much as before then.

I have also seemed to have jumped projects a little more than normal. I have made progressed on my Dystopian Wars Chinese Federation Aerial box. I completed the majority of a custom Firestorm Armada Pathogen fleet. I dug out my old unpainted League of Italian States models and painted them up.

My son has also convinced me to try Privateer Press's Warmachine. He had asked me a couple of times over the past year to give it a try so we looked into it further. I like how rules play out, some of the warjack combat options can get a little confusing but the game we played was a blast! After doing some research I decided to give the Retibution of Scyrah a try and then picked up some minis for Cygnar and the mercenaries as I couldn't quite decide which I wanted to try the most. My son decided Khador was his favorite and picked up their starter box. Our first game had my Retribution guys get stomped by the Khador heavy warjacks.  We had a blast however and my mind has already started working through what I can do differently next time. My brother-in-law has also bought into Warmachine/Hordes to play as well though we have not had an opportunity to play yet. He elected to pick up a Convergence of Cyriss forces as well as Everblight. I'm very curious to play a round against Everblight and see how different the risk management of Hordes differs from the resource management of Warmachine.

If you haven't seen the new Spartan release this month, the 10/15mm building ruins look fantastic. I took advantage of my Corinthian Club membership and picked up several of the ruins, The Corsican Incident and the Dawn of Souls objective marker. I am pretty excited to get all of these and paint them.
SS Dawn of Souls

Bonus Structure I got for purchasing on Easter weekend. This thing looks pretty sweet! I really like seeing the infantry bases within the building for scale.
I hope to get some pictures of my Pathogen models up this weekend as well as do some in progress pictures of my Warmachine forces. Hopefully my kids and lighting will cooperate so I can get another post or two made. Hope everyone is having a good week. Thanks for reading!
