Nomad. Alchemist. Charlatan. Explorer. All of these words equally describe the Farrow adventurer Jugaar. Plying his trade as an entrepreneurial alchemist and healer in an oversized vardo, the self-styled “Doctor Professor” stands out as a singularly peculiar individual on the roads of western Immoren.

Some commissions are loosey-goosey, with just a few instructions and lots of leeway. Others are very strict and exact, because the client has a very specific vision. Both types of job are fun, but for different reasons. The first are a way to unleash the creativity and interpret the client’s vision however I want. The more strict variety appeal to the engineer in me, the need to solve the puzzle and create a finished product that’s as perfect as possible.

This job was of the second variety, and that was incredibly refreshing while working on it.

Not only did my client (the highly esteemed High Lord Faultimus mod Durmstrang, Esq., II) have a very specific vision for this chartacter, he already had colored art and he’d already kitbashed and sculpted the model.

When I got the model, the first thing I did was zenethal prime it and take pictures so I could see where all of the dark and light bits were. More and more, I’m finding this a very useful first step, it takes out the guesswork on how the light will play over the model.

Last Thursday, we had a Portals Event at the store.  We had about 15 people, so we ran 3 tables or about 5 each.  Players were randomly distributed, and the game was afoot!

Spawning on the other side of the table allows one to practice stretching exercises…

See more pictures after the break.

Which Army spawned behind you and murdered you to death?
Well, there was a Thyra in front of the Butcher…
Spiky invaders from the north!  Get ’em!

On the model front, 3x MoW Shocktroopers are now built, and are awaiting primer.  Since that’s not terribly interesting, here’s some pictures of some of the armies that the guys are working on for the Slow Grow League!

Oink!  Oink!  Squeeee!

So, with the delay of the OGJ group, I can shift my focus onto the next thing in the queue…  Helping a friend for Templecon!  He’s running a Carver Theme force, and will have lots of Brigands!  I’m in charge of painting a full unit in order to help him meet the deadline.

These were supplied assembled and primed black, and with the barrels drilled out.  An hour and a half of not very focused basecoating, and the metallics are blocked out:

Reeeee!  Reeeee!

 Since the rest of his force is done with P3 paints, I’ll have to do my best to match them with my Citadel paints.  However, since I am doing a whole unit, a bit of variety will help differentiate the troops on the battle field!

More tomorrow!
