Dracula’s America: Outlaws

I’ve connected with some local gamers that play Gunfighter’s Ball and possibly Dracula’s America. I’ve had the Dracula’s America books for a few years now and haven’t done anything with it. Well, that recent connection was the spark to get me to move on a posse.

Battletech: Clan Mechs

Here’s something a little different for WS&TZ. Barnes and Noble (one of the last, large North American book chains) recently ran a 50% off all boardgames sale. I went in looking for a second copy of the B&N exclusive Blitz Bowl: Ultimate Edition, but walked out with four boxes of Battletech.

Blitz Bowl: Lizardmen Team

My son has been wanting to try out the Lizardmen team for awhile, but I tend to lean on a pretty strict “Play it Painted” mentality, so we haven’t run this squad in our Blitz Bowl games. Additionally, I struggled a bit with what color scheme I wanted to go with. Finally, I decided, the heck with it, let’s get ’em done.

Blitz Bowl: The Khorne Team

In early September, I decided I’d take the new Khorne Team to Chaos Cup (a post on that team is forthcoming). While doing that team, I went ahead and worked on a Blitz Bowl (BzB) team at the same team. Spoiler alert…they don’t use the same team colors. The BzB Khorne Team is essentially a separate project. Why’d I go with different colors? And what’s with those red skin tones? Read on…

The Court of the King in Yellow – Warcry

Earlier in the year when I was airbrushing everything that wasn’t nailed down, I had a chance to blow through my Cypher Lords warband from the Warhammer Age of Sigmar game Warcry. These truly weird chaos cultish warband really pushed the idea of what a chaos twisted band of followers could look like. From the outside they could easily pass as a mystical band of martial artists with a fancy for elaborate headgear. Of all the warbands released the look of this warband I found the most intriguing. With their true allegiance in disguise, it leaves the age-old fear of what makes chaos the scariest, the Enemy Within! Brainstorming the idea was the easy part, next was to get that idea a color scheme.

Once again I decided to reinvigorate some life into my Mordheim collection and selected my Beastman Warband to leave the Empire in Flames of the world that was, and to join the new hotness of Warcry! Continue reading

Warcry: Turning Mordheim Models into Roaming Beasts

img_2984

Logic would suggest that a person should start with the basics of a game before they start adding extras into the mix.  Being a less than speedy painter I can never keep up with the Games Workshop production line of new products.  This typically results in me having making a hodgepodge collection as I move in and out of the collection stream.  This time around instead of starting with the core released box set of the game I have instead gone with roaming beasts that are not even part of the core rules.
