Under the brush, episode (i’ve no idea)


Nothing much to see here, still on a postgathering comedown, and haven’t had much time for painting in the last few weeks. Still, heres some pics of what has come out recently

Empire fanatics: I’ve got a large block left to paint up, but these have been polished off now so I can use them in a mordheim type scenario I’m planning

Forge world event navigator and Solomon Lok inquistor models.

Truth be told, I found the navigator to be quite a pain in the rear, due to the sheer plethora of details on him. The Inquisitor in the other hand had a fairly nice balance of detail.

Sometime I think some sculptors/companies should stop and think for a moment. Just because they can do a thing, doesn’t mean they should. (I’m looking at you, Nagash: The End Times)

Gobboes from Gamezone L-R: Rude gobboes, Gobboe fanatic, Sir Gobboe

I love the way these little guys have come out. Initially, I’d ended up with a very flat dull green on the skin.However, a glaze of yellow ink made them POP and added just a level of vibrancy that I’m planning to do the same for all my gobboes.

That said, I’ love the minis themselves – I ordered the rude gobbes purely because Iw ant some fun in my armies, and they hit the nail on the head. The Fanatic is the first of several I’m planning to order as he’s mean enough to look threatening, without the overlong chains on the current gw plastics. Sir Gobboe was  again for the giggles, especially when facing Heathers Brettonians 🙂

 

I’m going to close on a bit of an observation – I’ve recently been paiting a mix of resin, plastic and metal models, yet finding the metal ones are, to me, more fun to paint. Not sure why,

The game is what YOU make it.


With the announcement about the major changes to White dwarf recently there has been a lot of noise on the ‘net about why folk won’t play, or why they gave up playing when x version came out etc.

Now, one of the themes that has pushed some of my buttons has been “Why don’t they do xyz with 40k/fantasy/boxed game”.

These and my general observations, suggest to me that there is a lot of the noise out there seem to miss an entire point of gaming, whether it be historical, fantasy, post apocalypse or some sort of niche “hunting war bunnies with rocket launchers” setting.

Once you have brought the game rules then you can do what you want with them. You can house rule them to your heart’s content to play how you want. You can play the scale of games you want, whether it’s small skirmish level scenarios, or monstrous weekend killer grinding attrition nightmares, or even xxx points This list is for xyz tournament and I need to practice with it snore fest[1].

So, the question isn’t “Why doesn’t publisher X do xyz with product Y?” but “Why haven’t you done it with product Y if that’s how you want to play?” Read the rest of this entry »

Reiklander Warband


The recent scenery posts, may have given the game away that we’re working on a load of terrain for playing Mordheim. At the moment, I’m planning to be running a Riekland mercenary warband (As opposed to Heathers Skaven, Tim’s Sisters of Sigmar & Al’s Greenskins)

I’ve got the list together – roughly at any rate, and the models are built, with an interesting mix of mordheim/Empire Milita/Empire crossbowmen/Empire State troops/Beastmen/Chaos Warrior/plasticard/epoxy putty, as well as the moral boosting help of a lot of cuppa’s and at least 1 box of sainsburys do-nuts 🙂

Click on the pics for better images – and I’ll get painted ones up as & when   Read the rest of this entry »
