A Second Step into Frostgrave

Posted on January 27th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

I completed my second game of Frostgrave last week and the system is slowly growing on me. I can definitely say it is fun. We are playing a campaign, you can find my opponents views here. The demands on a terrain collection that the game makes are huge…

Bloodbowl Ogre

Posted on January 25th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

My random painting continues apace. This time I pulled out an Ogre from the depths of my lead pile. I recently brough two of my Bloodbowl teams to Germany as some mention of a league at the local club had been made. My humans are painted but I always l…

Railroad Terrain

Posted on January 21st, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Railroad terrain looks great on a Warmachine or Malifaux board and despite the fact I don’t play those games offline anymore I still want to get these pieces painted up. These railway pieces have been lying around in my cabinet for a long time and so …

A step further into Frostgrave

Posted on January 19th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

I played my first campaign game of Frostgrave last week and my second is coming up tonight. It was fun. I still hold a few reservations about the game but more on those later. The game played far better than the first. Mainly because we understood the …

Celestial Vindicators Liberators

Posted on January 18th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

There is nothing as good as a bunch of finished miniatures. I am pretty happy with how these Stormcast came out and I think the colour scheme of the Celestial Vindicators was a good choice to base mine upon. I think the more muted tones suit the models…

A Foray into Frostgrave

Posted on January 15th, 2016 under , . Posted by

Somehow I managed to start yet another fantasy system. this time it is Frostgrave. Owen from Farfarawy.org modified a VASSAL module to allow us to try the system out remotely. As it is relatively simple we were able to get a game done without too much …

Celestial Vindicator Liberator Prime

Posted on January 13th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Finally this model is complete and the regiment is too. I will take some group shots tomorrow and post it up on Friday or Monday. The fact that there is a little more gold on this model actually made him faster to paint. I am hoping that this will make…

Another Vindicator

Posted on January 7th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

The fourth is complete and the end is in sight, for this regiment at least. Again nothing special here beyond what you have seen on the previous three. I still can’t decide upon the shoulder pad scheme and I haven’t even attempted to improve the hammer…

Wyrd Stuff: Rogue Necromancy

Posted on January 4th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

The Malifaux painting spree continues and I got the Rogue Necromancy finished. He isn’t the greatest model ever produced but I do like him still. Painting him was easy enough and surprisingly I enjoyed it. I can often find painting models a bit of a ch…

Witchfate Tor Part 1

Posted on January 2nd, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

I bought this model at the same time as the Dreadstone Blight. I pretty much instantly regretted the decision as I bought them without paying any attention to the pictures. Once it arrived I realised that they are more or less the same model with an ad…

Wyrd Stuff: Dead Doxy 2

Posted on December 29th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

The painting continues apace. As these were half completed an aeon ago it hasn’t been too hard to get them finished off. I went with purple for this lady. It is another colour I hate. I guess though that the only way to improve it to continually expand…

Wyrd Stuff: Dead Doxy

Posted on December 27th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

My camera work is getting worse and simply because I changed the room I am taking the photographs in. I will try to figure out a better way to take them in the future. I have had a few of Wyrd Miniatures products lying around only half done for a year …

Stormcast Triumvirate Completed

Posted on December 21st, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Three done and a lot more to go. I am actually starting to enjoy painting these more. The blending of the blues is a little annoying but it has started to go faster. It still takes an age to get a single model done. The sheer size of the models means I…

Celestial Vindicators

Posted on December 16th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Very slow progress is being made with my Celestial Vindicator Brotherhood. I haven’t made any changes to the scheme and I dont intend to really. I do have a few decisions still to make. I want to work on my silver a little more to make it pop. I am pre…

A Year of Malifaux

Posted on December 15th, 2015 under , . Posted by

It didn’t seem like a busy year of gaming but while chatting post-game last week I came to the realisation that I have played thirty games of Malifaux this year. You can read a lot about them here. I even managed to play through two campaigns using th…
