Minotaurs, Dragons and...a Demonic Cow?


I didn't have a whole lot of time for painting this week, though I did get one point of Minotaur Protomechs painted with a second point started. They're rather small, so the paint jobs are decent, though nothing special as you can see:
I figured that numbering the bases was the easiest way to tell them apart.
On the 40k battlefront, Saturday night Neverness came over for a small game with his Demons attacking my Exodites who (up until that point) had been in the process of cleansing their world of the Mon'keigh blight. Apparently, forsaken by the almighty Emperor, the Mon'keigh started praying to whichever gods would listen, and the demons arrived as their...salvation? One of which was apparently the 'demonic cow' mentioned in the title of this post.  Neverness took several photos and posted a battle report which you can find here, and it was a damned good game if I do say so myself!

 My forces were as follows:

(sorry on the weird alignment of the point values, it all looks just fine in the preview/layout.)

This will be my only post for the week, as tomorrow I'm heading off on vacation. I'm going to Washington DC, to visit the Smithsonian Museums & the various monuments on the National Mall. It should be a lot of fun I think!

Hope you have a great time in DC. Despite all the hassle involved in living there I sometimes even miss the place! I definitely miss the Smithsonian though, working at Natural History was teh coolest job I ever had. Getting to watch the IMAX movies for free was an awesome perk. :) Have fun!!

Da Masta Cheef said...

Yeah I'll bet it was! I volunteer at a museum & like it quite a bit, can't imagine what the behind the scenes at the Smithsonian is like though! Like most (if not all) cities that I've been to, don't think I'd want to live there (Orlando was bad enough) but they do make nice places to visit.

Have a good time in DC - the Smithsonian is epic. Loved the battle report - definitely looks like it was a good time.

"She who milks". Hah!
