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?

The case of the perfect case

20180203_180156.jpg

Check out that lovely chair our neighbor gave us! We have a very trendy interior design style, it’s called “free chic.”

I’ve been trying to figure out the case situation for my minis for a little while now. I’ve been using the deluxe box of the Willy Miniatures Ratmen Team that I unboxed a few months back to get my Blood Bowl stuff around to my league games. And it’s been fine. But I’ve also recently gotten into the Hobbit Strategy Battle Game which requires quite a few more models than Blood Bowl. Not hundreds of models, but dozens. So I need a solution for that too, as well as my BB team.

Under the Brush: Chaos Renegades update

IMG_3974 copy

I’ve been working on painting up my Chaos Renegades team off and on over the past couple of months and I’m slowly reaching the finish line. For the color choice I wanted some Tzeentch-y as he’s my favorite of the chaos gods (although I was really tempted by the 5th god Malaal but figured the reference was too obscure). I wanted to avoid yellow and blue as I didn’t want the team to look like the Reikland Reavers color scheme, but I did end up going with a pale gold, blue and turquoise look. I hope the Changer of Ways approves.

Things Are Getting Chaotic Around Here!

Due to the Games Workshop’s change from resin teams to plastic, it might still be a little while before the Elf Union team hits shelves. Luckily, in the meantime, we’re still getting fairly regular releases for Blood Bowl. Recently Forge World put the Chaos Renegades Coins & Tokens set and the rookie Minotaur up for pre-order, and today, a box from the UK showed up in my mailbox!

Under the Brush: Ep 2

20170818_001033

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!

Minotaur Pricing Confirmed

mug

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 …

Full Beard Cup Previews

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.

Let’s make a Pact: New Willy Miniatures Kickstarter

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.
