Bushido underway !

Bushido is underway ! we have played almost an 8th of a turn lol far from epic but we are trying to get our heads round the rules over a bottle of wine which didn't help. But when we are both together and free from our jobs over the weekend we are going to crack the nut so to speak and then do a battle report... I am going to hazard a guess and say it shall be a shambles and an unmitigated disaster but undoubtedly hilarious and entertaining so stay tuned :D

what i've been up to rambling video

just a vid from my youtube channel showcasing the shrike mini you have already seen and a second painted bushido minature. Also features some rambling about brushes

Hiro takashi COM- PLE-TED !

First off I'd like to say Bushido is fast becoming a obsession of mine. I have, I admit not played yet ..but am very excited about doing so. The minatures are awesome :D here are some pictures of my first fully painted Bushido mini ...Hiro Takashi

The base is made to look kind of muddy and wet ..can you spot the crud on his socks ? lol

The back just to prove i painted it ....and finally a close up of his face/mask

Stay tuned for more Bushido stuff and hopefully I will do a bat rep over the weekend.... he he gotta love dem weekends boi !

Bushido WIP paintjobs

Already started painting two of the five models from my starter set !
Done the faces for the most part but need to tidy them up (buying a brush with a tip would help) the rest of the two models however are almost completely undone (they have been primed)
I think I will re buy these models in a year or so and go all out on them with a (hopefully) improved painting ability and some quality brushes and alot of free time for the hobby all at my disposal. I do like the paintjob so far but think that it is such an awesome minature that it deserves a much more professional paintjob than this.

This guy above is the main character for my faction I think i could have done a better job so far if i had chosen the face alternate head option instead of the helmet but the helmet just looked too cool lol

Tau ethereal conversion

I am in the process of building a 'farsight bomb' list for tau so lots of crisis suits are being purchased and converted into body guard crisis suits as farsight can have up to 7 body guards ! The norm is 1-2 to protect a commander lol admitedly their is alot less heavy support in a farsight army and no outflanking kroot to help out but I just love the fluff for him and the model i built and painted to represent him on the table is kinda cool in my opinion.

However it is always fun to have more than one list so I am building a second list with even less ability but I couldn't resist the urge to make my own ethereal with fire warrior veteran bodyguards ( ten of them all with one higher than normal BS making them BS 4!) This would bubble wrap the ethereal who has no armour save but the honour blade he weilds adds plus 2 strength and he has ws4 and 4 attacks on the charge. This is still a very poor unit for close combat thou but a fearless unit now with the etheral in it and lots of accurate strenght five pulse shots will do lots of damage.
This higher balistic skill means they won't need to rely so much on marker lights so these can be used to reduce cover instead or be used for other units to benefit from instead.
