This is a post long overdue, the story of my first-ever completely painted warband of miniatures. I can count on one hand (technically two) the number of minis I’d painted before undertaking this endeavor: Two D&D miniatures when I was about 11 years old, and one of the plastic space marines from the 40k 2nd edition starter set. The other hand for the “technically two hands” are four of the OOP plastic Warhammer Fantasy militia I had built for Mordheim to get a feel for my painting technique.
Not much to say, gave my Chaos Renegade team a Zenithal prime tonight. In my previous painting with Zenithal prime I just did black and white sprays, tonight I added a gray spray in between. Fascinating I know. More pics after the break.
Our friends over at Willy Miniatures kindly sent us over a copy of their recent Kickstarter success, the Ratmen Team. It arrived all the way from Spain last Saturday and it has taken me all week to assemble, photograph and write up this review because there is a LOT inside this box. Let’s get on with it.
My turn for Under the Brush! Well, more like Under the Exacto/Snips as these guys haven’t even been primed yet. OK, technically a few of them were primed before I started working on them. This bunch of brutes is my Chaos Renegades (formerly known as Chaos Pact) team the Silver Tower Denizens. See what I did there? Tying together two of Games Workshop’s recent boxed games … their season is over, but I plan on playing them again next season, hopefully I can get them painted up by then as we’re in something of a break. Read on for more pics!
Via War of Sigmar, Forge World has announced what will be available at the Forge World Open Day. The minotaur will be 20 GBP and it will be Forge World, not a GW plastic release. Also the token packs for Chaos Renegades and Underworld Denizens will be 8 BGP each. I was hoping the two packs would be sold together, but that doesn’t look the case. Kind of seems like a lot of money for just a couple of tokens …
Warhammer Community shared some preview shots that were shared at the Full Beard Cup over the weekend at Warhammer World. Nothing particularly new, but painted versions of the new minotaur and the Underworld and Chaos Renegade tokens.
Just before the July 4th weekend a small package arrived in my mailbox. A small package, but a mighty player within (that’s what she said)! Our friends over at Tursas Miniatures sent us one of their custom Mighty BeerBeer miniatures to review here at Wyrd Stones and Tackle Zones.
My local Blood Bowl league is getting a bit of a reboot in its premiere season. This gives me a chance to ditch my crippled high elves in favor of something else. After taking a beating with the elves, I must admit I’m an elf failure, unable to score in four games, but I digress, I was feeling a bit dejected. I could fall back on my tried and true humans but wasn’t really feeling it or any other teams, really. Until I latched on to the idea of Chaos Pact or Chaos Renegades as Games Workshop calls them in the latest edition of Blood Bowl.
Forge World snuck a new Blood Bowl star player into their webstore last night (well night here in the US where WSTZ has it’s HQ) those dirty FW rats! We were late to the breaking news but thought we’d give our reactions to the new Hakflem Skuttlespike.
Earlier this week Warhammer Community teased us with the new Goblin team and with more teams from the Made to Order service, Necromantic Horrors and Shambling Undead. What they didn’t tell us was that High Elves and the Lizardmen were coming too! The Lizardmen has been notoriously hard to find in recent years and the big guy kroxigor has gone for pretty silly prices on eBay. Now’s your chance to buy them new from Games Workshop!
