Its been an unprecedented flurry of painting these past few months. Its mostly out of fear up my new schedule that is about to start completing crushing what little free time I have. Fear is apparently a good motivator as it has enabled me to keep up with the Tale of Tuesdays posts to get this extended project closer to the finish line!
I’m a bit late to the party this time with the Shattered Stormvault. I used up the last of my Paypal money to order this fellow off Ebay so it arrived a little bit after the release weekend. Read on if you wish to see the secrets of the Stormvault revealed!
The hype-train has finally pulled into the station! Well. some of the train has. I made the mistake of pre-ordering Warcry directly from GW so I don’t have the game in hand, but I was able to pick up some sweet terrain for the game with the Corpsewrack Mausoleum!
Half of this website is dedicated to our love of the game Mordheim. The gritty and violent nature of the game is unmatched. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much in the way of new content for the game in a very long time. To compound the issue the scale of the game has surpassed the old 28mm standard making the original classic models appear more and more outdated. So Mordheim may be fading away, but there is a new source of excitement on the horizon.
The past few months has seen the steady drip of glimpses into the world of Warcry. Does this game have a chance of stealing the Mordheim crown? More importantly, lets see some new models!
Hard to believe that this project is still a work in progress. After decreeing that it would be completed by the end of 2017 it is still trucking along. In all fairness I had to move and leave the country for a bit which made painting impossible for a good chunk of time. Upon my return I’ve been in an out of school and my work tempo has been through the roof. Still, I try to work on the project when time allows and keeping with the Tale of Tuesdays Blood Bowl challenge, I thought I would provide an update of my progress. Continue reading
The GAMA trade show has finally brought us some much anticipated Blood Bowl news, and boy was it a surprise to some! Speculation had run the gambit on the next team to see the light of day and personally I will admit that I was surprised. The crew of WSTZ discusses the design of the new diminutive team and Jeff works his wizardry to translate this team onto the Blitz Bowl circuit!
I haven’t regularly used Star Players in league or tournament play in a very long time. Back in the original 3rd edition rules Star Players where much cheaper than they currently are so it was quite common to see them in play. When I attended the first Blood Bowl Tournament at GW Nottingham it was a staple to see all the big names on just about every team at the tournament. In fact my Chaos Dwarf team rocked Hthark The Unstoppable through it’s first several tournaments. I’m pretty sure every Undead team I played against had Count Luthor and every human team had Griff. They were so cheap it would have been ridiculous not to use them. A few iterations of rules later and taking those guys now is a huge commitment so its rare to see such big names on the field. Some tournaments though have adopted homemade heroes which has given me the opportunity to create some of my own Blood Bowl Stars. Continue reading
Better late than never, Games Workshop has finally gotten around to giving us the last of the goblin secret weapons and a troll with two feet on the ground! I take the time to unboxing and assemble these fantastic new models, so follow along below and see how these new models come together.
Believe it or not this project yet lives! Ironic that a project involving the undead refuses to die. Despite the inconvenience of having to put my life on hold for a year, I’m now back home and still trying to get this team finished. It’s been a bit of a rough start as I was more than certainly a bit rusty with the old paint brush. Still, despite a bit of squeaky joints I made some noticeable progress.
If you recall, I mentioned how rough the summer was on my wallet when it came to the amount of new Blood Bowl teams that 3rd-party manufacturers were producing. In total I added another seven teams through Kickstarter last year and the rewards of that
folly adventure have begun to trickle in. The first to arrive only slightly behind schedule is a new take on the men with hats, the Grim Butchers from Goblin Guild.
