Journeyman week 1

Week one of the Journeyman League is over!

I managed to get my 15 point list completely painted

I'm using pNemo as my caster for the league (at least until we reach 35 points and you can have two lists)

He was quite fun to paint. I wanted a colour scheme for him that matched the rest of my army but also linked him to the Stormsmiths I will be painting soon.

Dynamo was intimidating... so much detail on this model it was hard to know where to start.

I didn't notice until writing this that the paint on his head has chipped a little... I will have to fix that later.

So many lightening coils!

Finally painted my Lancer! This is the second model from my original battlebox that I have now painted, just pStryker and the Charger left.

The Tactical Arcanist Crops where a pain for me to paint, I had no clue what colour to paint their armour. Lucky for me the guys at my local club suggested some ideas for me. After that they painted up really quickly.

To round out the list I painted the Gobber Tinker I converted a couple of weeks ago. He was fun to paint up, I made the spare parts in his cart look a little rusty and second hand with a few washes.
I like the way his gloves look rubbery

On to the games!

Game one was against Mercs, His list was :
Harlan Versh
Steelhead halberdiers (min unit)

 At the start of the game I managed to kill all the Steelheads before they reached my army using the Chain lightening spell. Gallant was locked in place with Voltaic Snare and Dynamo shot it up so it didn't get anything done either.
Then Ashlynn charged and killed Dynamo and the gunmages kill the Tactical Arcanist Corps.
Nemo lacked the ability to do much to her with Quicken upkept on herself Nemo needed 12's to hit her with any spells...
She finished him off after I failed to kill her.

Game two was against Menoth. His list was
Bastions (Max)
Errants (Min)

This was a really hard match, I managed to wreck his jack easy enough and reduced the Bastions to 2 left out of 5 (each on its last health) but martyrdom kept them in the game for a long time.
I didn't even touch the Errants, in the end Harbinger moved up and cast Cataclysm at Nemo, who died quite easily to the auto hitting spell...

I hope to try and get more games in next week if I can, We have one more week at 15 points before moving to 25. (Each increment in points lasts for 2 weeks to give players more of a chance to keep up with the painting)


  1. Good post bud ;) glad to see the Nemo painted up in your colours, really suits the model!
    The use of infantry in the JML, really changes the mix up of the matches ey?! Completely different ball game for Menoth being able to bring HARBY in at week1

    1. Thanks mate, I'm really happy with how he turned out.
      Yeah the lack of restrictions did make it a little hard on poor old Nemo at these low points but hopefully it should even out later on.
