Arcane Tempest Gun Mages or Bust

So, I have gone and done it again. I can't even commit to my own plog. It has been over a week and a half and as things tend to go some things do change. Such as I am putting my Circle on the back burner for a bit. Yeah, yeah I know what everyone is thinking. I committed to painting up the Circle figs before Hordes Prime Mk. II came out and now I am dropping the ball but some amazing games with my 35pt Kara Sloan List that treated me so well during the 3-week Shattered Grounds: Nightfall League, that I am compelled to paint it up first.

Out of the 18 games that I played across the course of the league, I lost 4 games. While it wasn't enough to gain the coin (the winner had something like 130pts) I definitely put up a solid showing for Cygnar. After trying out just about every warcaster Cygnar has to offer I think I finally found the one that I like playing. Something about playing Kara Sloan just seems to fit. Depending on the player I am usually outnumbered and I get that feeling that I am fighting an up-hill battle. Something about that has made me just want to win even more and prove that I can and will win. I approach every game with the intention of getting off that head-shot. Getting down to board level to eye-ball the field and just so I can see if I can line-up that shot. Most of the time it happenes...that one lucky shot that won the game. Other times I just can't work my way through the wall of troopers and warjacks that are in the way to end the game by killing the warcaster/warlock. Such is the nature of the game.

After the stellar performance of the 35pt list with Kara I felt it would just be a grave injustice to not paint up the models I used and will most likely continue using in the next incarnation of the Shattered Grounds League.

Arcane Tempest Gun Mages
Arcane Tempest Gun Mage Officer
Black 13th Gun Mage Strike Team

Reinholdt, Gobber Speculator
Captain Arlan Strangewayes
Professor Victor Pendrake or Alten Ashley.

The nice thing is, a few of the models are already painted. A defender, the Squire, Reinholdt, and Capt. Strangewayes. And now to work on the rest. The first to see paint is the ATGM + Officer. I have already started and I will leave this fine plog alone for a week or so with a picture.
