Off the Beaten Pitch: Fanath Chaos Chosen Team Review

Fanath Chaos Choen Team

I’ve been aware of Fanath Arts for some time in the 3rd party Blood Bowl market.  While I had looked before at picking up their High Elf team I never pulled the trigger on it.  It was a decent design but it didn’t capture my full attention.  Well times have changed!  When Fanath offered a Chaos Chosen team on Indiegogo this past summer it grabbed my attention despite having just recently purchased a Chosen team months before.  So what was it that made me spend money on a second team of the same variety?

Catching up on news: UK Games Expo

ukexpo-june1-header22ht

I was out on vacation last week so I’m still catching up on gaming news, but last Friday Games Workshop casually dropped a couple of tidbits for us from the UK Games Expo. Warhammer Community buried the lead but I won’t …

Soul Wars: A New Hype

I woke up this morning to the alarm going off on my phone, as I roll over to hit the snooze my bleary eyes so a push notification from YouTube telling me Warhammer TV has posted a new video, a trailer for Soul Wars. What’s this, my brain asks? My bleary eyes take in the info, then check Warhammer Community to see a news post about a mile long detailing all the million awesome things coming to Age of Sigmar this month.

Warhammer Live Recap 5.31.2018

Screen Shot 2018-06-04 at 10.45.11 AM

I’d like to introduce a new feature on Wyrd Stones & Tackle Zones, the Warhammer Live Recap! I know not everyone has time to tune in to the free Warhammer Live streams or Twitch accounts to go back and watch after it airs, so I thought you all might enjoy a little recap of the interviews. I’ll be focusing on the streams where the focus is on Specialist Games or from the Middle-Earth team as those are what I’m particularly interested in. As I don’t play AoS or 40k I’m afraid my knowledge is rather limited to what’s going on so I’m not sure my recaps would be as beneficial.

To the recap!

Under the brush: Memorial May elves

20180522_230151

As Jeff mentioned in his post yesterday, we have together with another buddy, been working on a monthly painting challenge for the month of May. With Memorial Day being the holiday of the month we decided to honor troops everywhere by painting up 10 standard troop types. We’re all currently working on projects in different gaming systems, so an even number like 10 regular troopers seemed like a good fit.

Kickstarter Round Up: The month of May assaults my wallet, leaves no prisoners!

Being stuck overseas and in austere environments means I am not able to accomplish much hobby work.  Thankfully though, the internet enables me to stay connected to all the nice new minis in the works and the generous tax break of being in a combat zone means I’ve got plenty of greenbacks piling up.  What better outlet to unclutter my wallet than a stroll through the Fantasy Football market on Kickstarter.  Two projects have jumped out and waylaid my savings, promising me piles of models to rummage through when I finally come home.
