Another thing I picked up at the recent Brick Mania Antwerp colaboration I participated in, is to build an actual army to go alongside my small MoC`s.I had heavily invested in Viking minifigs for the Chapter 3 of the Guilds of Historica book 2, but it …

So a few parcels of bricks have fallen on the doorstep and I could proceed a bit further on the building of my 2015 goal build.Today, the aim was to firstly finish the border of what the build will have, and then to start filling in the base for the fu…

Posted on November 27th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

A few people have hit milestones this week. Mine might be so grand but I think I am doing okay. I guess that I am happy enough that the blog is not a total flop.I think I have spent more time on eBay in the last few weeks than I have spent painting. So…

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game

I have an interesting relationship with RPGs. I used to play them a lot when I was in university but once I left I really got out of the habit. Despite an interest in them, especially the idea of world-building, the rules really leave me cold and the g…

The Book of War: The Book of Miracles

Posted on November 20th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

It’s almost done. I’ve been working on it since about May this year and just got back into finishing it off in the last few weeks. I pretty much have a working draft now. There are some big differences to my original ideas… but then I’m likely the on…

Zac

Today was a Marvel Dicemasters event at the store and even though I wasn’t playing I was helping run it for Sentry Box. While I was there I asked Bill to come down and introduce me to the Warhammer Diskwars game from Fantasy Flight. Diskwars is a…

So this is last project I’ll be doing before I move to my new apartment, and it’ll be a tight squeeze to meet the deadline before I have to start packing! I’ll be working on a Warhammer Dwarf commission this week. The force consists o…

Phew! Busy last few weeks trying to organise projects before I move to a new apartment! Last week I painted a total of three blood bowl teams for two different commissions. First up was the Skaven Team from Black Scorpion miniatures. They’re lov…

Book or War: Basing Wars

Posted on November 3rd, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

More Book of War. This time my ‘favourite’ topic: basing. Controversially (since no one else seems to think this is a good idea), I have gone with nominally single based troops. That’s nominally, since you can often get away with multi-based troops, ju…

Catching a Spy

Posted on October 28th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

What is all that noise? Hagen thought as he neared the mine of Karaz Modan, somewhere in the snowy peaks of Mitgardia.  Following the path way, he saw a few Yeti making anxious roars and bellows, obviously aroused by something.Now, one has to know…

ROGUE PLANET cover preview

Posted on October 24th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

I thought that I would give everyone a sneak peek of the cover for my soon-to-be released sci-fantasy skirmish game ROGUE PLANET. The final edits are being finished up as I type this. So get your plasma blasters, powered fists, and over-sized great swo…

AoM Mill Phase 2: Down by the (Icky) River

Posted on October 23rd, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

After I deliberatly placed my phase 1 in Kaliphlim as a trade relationship to Mitgardia and linking it that way to our noble icy lands, I went for phase 2 with a Nocturnus influenced build.This is a nice way to break up the building of wooden houses an…

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall,Who is the Fairest of them All? The past weekend me and the GF sat down to watch a movie together, something we actually don`t do often, but she wanted to see this one and I still needed to see this one, so with this common g…

So my making of series draws to a close with a few last details (click these links for previous articles: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4). I’m not going to go into every last bit of the model … Continue reading →

Book of War: Command and Control

Posted on October 19th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

I love Fantasy gaming but I love none of the current rule-sets out there. It is a little bit of Goldilocks syndrome, but I think we can do better than them. Since the only ‘mainstream’ set is WHFB, there is no established player base to consider anyway…

Building the Chima big croc

Chima Legendary Beasts.  They might not have really taken off in retail (I bought only a wolf once, the one featured in the lil` red riding hood moc last week), but they aren`t that expensive actually, and contain nice parts in nice colours.When `…

Actually Done Some Painting…

Posted on October 8th, 2014 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

…but not quite what I was expecting to paint. Although I now have a workbench to paint on, I am still scratching around for things that I can do. My eyesight is not brilliant so I depend on a magnifying lamp. I can find the lamp but I can’t find the …
