Here we are again, with the original project. If you don’t remember what this is all about, check Part 1. Good progress has been done, and except for a few Iron Guard models, everything else is bought, waiting to be painted. Scenery is coming along nicely too, so Moria itself is taking shape as well. I can say that I’m only lacking in the big models, like the Balrog and the Dragon, but they will come soon enough. Remember these are all the models you’ll need to play all of Khazad-Dûm and Shadow and Flames’ scenarios, except those not involving dwarves.

Aquí vamos de nuevo, con el proyecto original. Si no te acordás de qué se trata esto, revisá la Parte 1. Hice buenos avances, y exceptuando algunos modelos de la Guardia de Hierro, todo lo demás está comprado y esperando a ser pintado. La escenografía también está quedando bien, así que Moria está cobrando forma. Puedo decir que me estoy atrasando un poco con los modelos más grandes, como el Balrog y el Dragón, pero ya van a llegar eventualmente. Recordá que estas son todas las figuras que necesitás para jugar todos los escenarios de Khazad-Dûm y los de Shadow and Flame que incluyen enanos.

Goblins, goblins, and more goblins!

Quite a varied bunch, but all pretty awful characters. First up 16 goblins with shield and sword, completing The Guild’s Task 2 with a month to spare.

Then it’s a couple of ork tankbustas, pretty nice models. Though I have no idea what they really do in the game other than bust tanks (I guess).

Finally, some tyranid termagants. I think I have another 5 of these to paint up. The thing here is that I tried the color scheme in which I plan to paint the rest of the tyranids I have lying around, and it works not only because it’s nice, but also because it’s fast and easy.

Next up, a couple of Legolas figures, six orcs with spears, and a Space Marine terminator captain.

So here’s a simple idea if you like wargaming blogs as much as I do. Following these simple steps you will have reading material for about 2 months (heavy reading by the way), and then at least a couple of interesting posts a day.

Just replace Google Reader for any reader software or site of your preference.

1- Visit Blogs of War. Amazing little blog about wargaming blogs.

2- Subscribe to Blogs of War in Google Reader. You will get the archive, to the first post made in January of this year.

3- Cruise every post from Blogs of War and subscribe to each and every one you find interesting (or don’t already follow).

That’s it. If you consider half of the blogs I follow came from doing this, then you will end up with about 50 new wargaming blogs in your reader.

Some things to consider though. I am interested in pretty much every aspect of the hobby, so I follow Warhammer 40K, old school wargaming, naval, any scale imaginable, scenery, pulp, and any other kind of wargaming blog you can think of. Also, keep your Blogs of War subscription. Just today a new blog was added, with a new entry, so you can add more to your own subs.

One more thing to take it a step further if you want. Check the links of a blog with a theme you like. You will likely find some more blogs about the same subject.

You can see below this post a couple of new galleries. One for the Orks (trust me, I’ve got more coming) and one for the mistery guys. Here you have the 15 boyz.

Some goblins too, for the depths of Moria and the project build. Only 16 more to go (for now).

And now the mistery guys. They are some Infinity figures I had forever. I’m going to use them for a small 5150 campaign, hopefully soon. I have to introduce them I guess.

First is Major Steven White, leader of the squad. Then you have Captain Katarina Solovyov. Corporal Enes Lobo carries the heavy weaponry. Last but not least, Corporal Lenhard Gaul, specialist scout. They are part of ARMS, the Alternative Realities Mercenary Squadron. They will travel all over the grid, jumping from dangerous dimension to the next, wherever their employers require infiltration.

Next up. Some ork tankbustas, 5 tyranid termagants, and 16 goblin warriors for LotR.

Here you have odds and ends, sci-fi figures from different manufacturers that I use for many different games, changing their names or descriptions as I see fit.

These are some Infinity figures grouped together in a squad for the ARMS campaign I plan to play soon.
