A post on Warhammer-Forum.com has shown off several images of new Elven Union related products for Blood Bowl. The low-res images show several new products including a new double-sided Elven Union pitch with on well manicured pitch on one side, and a frozen ice pitch on the other. Also shown is a single Elven Union die, an Elven Union team card pack, a package of card sleeves to fit the odd sized Special Play Cards complete with BB logo, a single random card with an image of what appears to be the Halfling Ref shown, and best of all, two images of the team sprues which look to show the Elf Union team as old school style multi-part plastic minis for maximum customization.
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!
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.
Well, it’s been 5 day since the last episode of Under the Brush, and despite my wrist being stubborn and not wanting to heal, I managed to get a little done this week.
The NOVA Open tabletop wargaming convention started today, and with the convention came a closer look at the upcoming re-release of Necromunda from Games Workshop. As reported on the Warhammer Community website, Games Workshop demoed the game for attendees… and my how the game has changed.
So, a while back I bought a team of silly female Dwarf minis from a company called Warlord Games. I thought they were hilarious because they were a Dwarven take on a “sexy” female team. If that doesn’t make you chuckle while shaking your head, I don’t know what will! Anyway, I already had a Games Workshop 3rd edition Dwarf team at the time, and shortly after, I picked up the fantastic Iron Golems Dwarf team. I painted both of those teams and even picked up a couple of Best Team trophies at local tournaments for them. Even more recently, I bought the Games Workshop 6th edition Dwarf team. So the question now is, do I REALLY need four Dwarf teams? The answer is a resounding, NO. What does that mean for you? It means that it’s time for Wyrd Stones and Tackle Zones’ very first mini giveaway!
Well, it’s been a couple of weeks since the previous post about painting my Delaque gang, so I thought I would check in. Admittedly, there has been very little progress. Between the sprained wrist, which is healing slowly but surely, and the drama of Hurricane-pocalypse here in Texas this week, there really hasn’t been much time for painting. I did, however, get about an hour or so to paint this afternoon… after the power came back on at the house.
I want to start this post with the following disclaimer: I am pretty new to gaming mats. I have used a couple of custom printed neoprene Blood Bowl pitches over the years, but that is about the limit of my experience. I have technically owned a couple of Mantic Games mats for Deadzone for about a year or so, but since I have yet to actually play Deadzone, all I have managed to use them for is as a backdrop for taking pictures of miniatures. Well, it’s officially time for that to change! Deep-Cut Studio has graciously agreed to send us one of their Space Hulk gaming mats for review, so here we go!
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!
