Its a lighting effect. I think its called OSL lighting. Object source lighting. I agree. It looks great. Nice job.

Thanks fellas!

Trex is correct about the OSL. I'm not perfect with it, but wanted to give that effect of the light from the lightsaber shining on him . I've done it with the other Vader and both Lukes I've painted.

I did a little more research. It seems that all you need at a minimum is the new manual. I am at the understanding that all the cards are in the manual along with stats for all the added weapons. At the very most I will need the manual, the object card deck and it seems that all the characters cards are available in either a "good guys" or "bad guys" deck. Ill be recieving the manual and the object card here in a few days and can confirm what I am understanding to be true. If the cards are in the manual I may scan them and print them out. For what its worth though, I may just pick them up as well. I did my taxes yesterday and didnt get completely screwed. I didnt get a refund really but didnt have to really pay much either. At only 16 bucks for the manual its not a super high buy in, especially if you already have a bunch of the models. Ill keep you guys posted. Im really loving both star wars legion and walking dead. Fun stuff.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

I finally got around to painting the tribesman mini that came with my Frostgrave Ghost Archipelago Nickstarter from a couple years ago.

I wanted to take a break from IP game minis, so I could paint this guy quickly.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

He looks great. Im yet to paint my snakemen or the cortiki and swamp zombie minis I had picked up awhile back. I did prime all the snakemen though. I split the 40 of them into 4 groups of blue, red, green, and yellow primed skin tones. With so many things to paint I really had to prioritize what would get played with the most though. I really need to knock out some more models.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

I got the rulebook for call to arms today along with the extra item cards. It turns out all the cards do not come in the book. Some of the basic cards are but only a few. I went ahead and picked up the ruthless and lawful character card decks. I was a little dissappointed that I couldnt get a negan card to go with my negan booster and will have to buy a saviors box to get it. But I dont have the other saviors any way at the moment.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

I got an email from miniature market advertising a big sale right now. Crazy enough, the saviors box was on there at about 10 bucks cheaper than elsewhere along with some cool zombicide black plague boosters I didnt have. After that I was thinking alright, Ill fill the rest of 100 bucks to get free shipping. I filled out the rest of my three wrath of kings armies, bought the rulebook, and picked up the B1 battle droid upgrade pack. Strangely enough, they were out of stock on most of their legion stuff. I had some time today to assemble my clone tank, death troopers, and prime the other boosters. Also found a great deal on filament for my fdm printer.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

That Call to Arms should be fun for you and your bro's. I don't know much about it, but it seems like more emphasis on factions .

Nice haul from Miniature Market. Have you played Kings of War yet?

I know about painting what gets played, but it was fun just to paint something that isn't Star Wars or Fallout. It's been awhile since I've painted other stuff, probably when I was painting stuff for Rangers of Shadow Deep.

Friday I picked up some stuff I ordered through my buddy Brian. The Star Wars rpg Edge of the Empire core rulebook (over 400 pages), the Wrecking Crew villain set for Marvel Champions, and the Robot card pack for Fallout Wasteland Warfare.

So I've been reading a little bit of the Star Wars rpg rulebook, as well as the Blades in the Dark rpg rulebook, and a fantasy novel in the Cleric Quintet series by R.A. Salvatore. Now besides having too many minis to paint, I have too many books to read as well

I hadn't played Marvel Champions in a few weeks, and hadn't even played vs Ultron in the base set, nor vs the 2 Green Goblin scenarios from his villain set. So now that I got the Wrecking Crew villain set, I figured I'd get back into playing before I get too many sets for it and have too much to catch up on. I played Captain America vs Ultron a few times. Fun stuff, despite losing 2 of 3 times. Will have to try other heroes against him. Thor should be coming soon, then Black Widow and then the Hulk.

The robot set for Fallout has cards that are difficult robot parts. So you can have the lower half of a Sentry Bot and torso of an Assaultron and head of a Protectron. Plus lots of robot specific item cards and such.

I havent played the wrath of kings game yet but have watched enough gameplay videos to know it should be pretty fun. I know what you mean about just getting to paint something different. I finished 54 clone troopers the other day and still need to paint 6 squads of b1s. All the droidekas, grieviouses, a couple tanks, a couple barc speeders, some death troopers, multiple new rebel squads, an eweb, a dish turret, and some others just for legion. I do have all the walking dead stuff painted except for the saviors box that is coming so that wont take long to get out on the table. Ive kinda wanted to get out some various monsters to paint to mix it up a little. I actually watched a review on blades in the dark. I didnt get the star wars rpg because it was out of stock at my normal go to places. I wouldnt got more hobby stuff done today if I hadnt started spring cleaning. The fallout stuff does look fun. I have to really figure out how to get more stuff played. I know that my brother and brother in law are itching to play some walking dead and legion so Ill probably just grind to finish those up first.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Yeah, if you have people itching to play something, especially if you already have a lot of it ready, then that is the way to go. I mean, you put a lot of time and money into Legion and Walking Dead, so play them as often as you can. At some point, you may decide that you don't need to keep buying/printing/painting more stuff for those games and be able to work on stuff for Fallout or Kings of War etc. Then when you get enough of that stuff painted, you can introduce your peeps to those games and be able to have another game or two in the rotation.

I kept up with the easy painting and finished up a snapping turtle and the 5 objective markers from the Ghost Archipelago Nickstarter. Just wanting a break from Legion and Fallout stuff before diving back into those piles. I've been looking at the Perilous Dark rulebook during lunch at work, so I'm hoping to give that a try and maybe someday use it to design solo scenarios for Ghost Archipelago so I can get that stuff played and enjoy that ruleset.
