B3's LotR hopes and dreams....

Postby griffen127 » Mon Apr 29, 2013 10:43 am

So with Acon over and B3 looming far on the horizon, its time to think about what I want to do and accomplish in the future. It’s always hard to pick out a new army and decide what you are going for. Super theme, All looks, heavy hitting. It seems that it’s easy to get 2 of the 3. My goal for B3 is to go for a new mix for me, in order
1.) All Looks
2.) Super Theme
3.) Light hitting

I want to draw on my skills as a painter and a hobbyist and push them as far as can. As such I am working on a new army, theme, board, and display. It’s not all normal for me I am going to sculpt with green stuff, try new painting techniques and use skills I learned in the trades a long time ago.

I don’t believe that this would be as fun if I didn’t get someone to come along with me. After all when in the movies do people do things by themselves and have it end well. To This end I am starting the LotR FUBAD club. I hope to get more people to join before B3. But as of now I would like to Thank Boston for coming along on this ride. It should be a very, very interesting.

I will be updating this page as time goes on. I plan for this to be a major undertaking. The amount of planning is already costing me more time then I have spent painting my Swan’s. I hope you all enjoy what I am doing as much as I am in planning and working on it. I encourage you all to reply to my posts, and give me feed back. I have no delusions that this is going to be very easy. I will not half ass this project. If I don’t get it done to the standards I set for myself I will not bring it. I may need some support from time to time when things are looking bleak. But I feel that this will be an amazing journey. I hope you will take it with me.

FUBAD is gonna rock. Maybe I will be able to beat kyle actually now that he takes a squishy list. This is all about pushing hobby skills to the limit, hopefully everyone likes what turns up over the next couple months and then in November.

Hmm.. not sure I can make B3, but always interested in something to get me painting again. I have a theming idea I have been sitting on for a while now. Maybe I can join in on the fun of making a new army with you all.

I wish someone would explain to me what FUBAD actually stands for... How can I support if I don't understand... perhaps I'm just not worthy.

with the changes to my plans, my good army is pretty much done at this point though I need to check the basing for the high elf side though it will never match the numenoreans I have. I just have to figure out my evil list now.

I have always like large ostentatious display boards but I though them in the garbage after a tourney. (for real at skull of thrones someone dumpster dived after one of mine) I know I need a new system. With a lot of though into it I believe I have come up with an answerer. It will be a major step forward for my ideas and planning. Making it standard will force me to keep things a certain way and as such save time. So off I go to plan and draw up my ideas!
What does the following get you??????
8 ft of 2x4
2sq ft of ¾ plywood
8 ft oak trim
8 ft oak trim
1 qt stain
1 qt varnish
1 rag
3 brushes
1 ct wood putty
2 sets of handles
1 set of extra long screws (sigh)
300 grit sand paper
1800 grit sand paper
1 table saw
1 tape measure
1 pencil
Extra saw blade (wopsy daisy)
10+ hours of work see above (yep)

Can you buy all that on Kickstarter? That's the only place I shop now.
