Apocalyptical January

It’s been more than 2 weeks since my last post! Some of you must think I’m dead!

While the last year ended in an alchemical way (with my challenge to paint all my Khalimanes’ army from ALKEMY), 2012 starts very apocalyptical (with EDEN the game).
In the events, I participated in two EDEN tournaments (X Chronicles at Paris and Novelle Année Apocalyptique at Herblay). I just played 4 or 5 games of EDEN in the game club, and I lost all, so in the tournaments, I didn’t have any hope to win at all, as the greatest players in the T3 rank were participating. However, I manage to finish in 2nd place in both tournaments! Maybe it was the survival instinct, the good energy’s from the cards that I borrowed from the player number 1 (in the first tournament) or the astonishing beauty from the Sisters of my army.
Still in the events, I’ll participate in painting workshop this weekend with the great master Mohand (click here for his site). I’m very excited about this workshop, I hope to ‘level-up’ my painting level.

In the painting side, I started to paint my Convoy army. I finished Otto, Jeremy, Gretchen and Louie. As I won the last release from the Matriarch (Sister Leyla) in the tournament, she’s my next target to paint.

Friday night loot

Last Friday in the game club, my friend Igor delivered me a lot of stuffs:

Elven spearmen regiments (from Kings of War): we’re going to use these miniatures for the speed painting in the miniature event that we’re organizing – the JFJ2012 (click here for the official link of the event).
By paying a full ticket for the event (10€), you can inscribe to participate of the speed painting, and take one of these miniatures to paint in less then an hour (the painting material will be supplied by the event). Also, that ticket let you participate to the others painting events, and also of the tournaments that will be take place in the event.
But attention: the places are limited, so you’ll have to buy the anticipated ticket to assure your participation.

Still in the JFJ2012 spirit, I got three exclusives miniatures from the passed editions of the JFJ: the charming sniper Artémia (JFJ2007), the sexy ‘lady’ Angelface (JFJ2008) and the feline warrior Léhéna (JFJ2009).
As soon as I finished painting them, I’ll post and add their companions from JFJ2010 and 2011.
Also, by paying the full ticket, you get the exclusive miniature of Ikiria, the Red Angel..

For my Christmas present, I got the foams to keep safe my Dreadfleet and Space Hulk miniatures.

Mission Accomplish

Yes, I did it! I finished painting my Khalmian army! Not only that, I finished it before the end of my vacations.
I have to say that I got a lot of good times painting them. A special to Kabircheikh Hakim Ibn Khalid: the miniature is so well sculpted that a simple wash gives it an amazing look.
Also, I have to thanks my baby boy and my wife. Without theirs efforts to not disturb me, I surely haven’t done that.

Here it goes the photo of the army. I’ll post individuals photos of each miniature after.
