In this case, hell must be overbooked by about 20 lost souls because that’s how many zombies I’ve currently painted to populate the wastelands of Roswell.Continue reading
I’ve written previously about these models and their inspiration, so this is a bit of a push post. I’ve got some other models I had planned to post on this weekend, but there’s a cold snap here putting my Dullcote spray sealant plan on hold. I decided to get a shot of these graboid-like creatures with a Roswell ’98 UFO in the background so I can go ahead and get these tagged together.Continue reading
There was an accident. About an hour ago, a small jet went down inside the Roswell Zone. The President was on board…Continue reading
A child of the 80’s, my favorite genre was near future dystopia. The media I was immersed in at the time all pointed to the 90s being a dark period. Games Workshop’s cult game, Dark Future…1995. John Carpenter’s classic film, Escape From New York…1997. One of my top 5 video games of all time, Smash TV…1999. As a personal tribute to these influences, I’ve grabbed three recent Oprey titles to game my vision of an alternate dystopian America in the 1990s.Continue reading
2020 started with a plan to host a gaming weekend in the summer which featured a Blitz Bowl tournament. The dastardly Covid had other plans, but I pushed forth and took the opportunity to get a lot of painting done. Though I didn’t hit all of my goals, I got really close finishing these on December 31st.Continue reading
I recently finished up the last Blitz Bowl team that I was able to wrap in paint in the dark year of 2020…the Dwarves. Dwarves have always been one of those fantasy races that I admire, even appreciating the gruff mirth of their player base, yet they’ve never really gripped me personally. I didn’t have a strong opinion going into this team on what their scheme would be. Initially, I thought I’d take another whack at a bright second edition style kit, as I did with the humans. In the end, I wound up looking back to a team from my gaming past. A lazy crutch of mine?Continue reading
When the Nurgle Team was released for Blood Bowl, I was excited at the prospect of hopefully painting them one day. The models are full of character, they looked fun to paint and they’re one of the 2nd ed teams that are fairly well known, but they’ve never really been produced well in miniature form by Games Workshop/Citadel. However, I don’t really care to ever play this team again after one crushing season, but again, Blitz Bowl’s here to make this coach’s gaming dreams a reality.Continue reading
The Dark Elf Blood Bowl team is one that I’ve achieved great highs with, but also terrible lows. I’ve taken them undefeated to the championship of Orclahoma (the largest single day BB tourney in the US), but have also gone winless and been abused in a league. The lowest low though was simply assembling the new GW plastic team for Blitz Bowl…this squad almost had me quit the hobby again.Continue reading
Blitz Bowl doesn’t have an official Wood Elf team…but the upcoming Blitz Bowl Season 2 does! In anticipation I went ahead and traded a sprue of Dark Elves for Wood Elves with @caseyrog I don’t have history with Woodies across any GW game, but I knew which approach I would take with the team.
Halflings were always my preferred Dungeons and Dragons race when I was a a youth, but I never felt drawn to play them in Blood Bowl. I guess I was never a fan of all the kitchenware on their models. I can get behind them being a joke team, but I’d still like them to look like a…well…sports team.
