The Well of Souls

Like an ever flowing stream it comes, when does it end? Where could I begin? Still they came, by the hundreds, by the thousands, the teens of thousands, en masse through obliteration. Always the question, how many more? If you're Nagash you're hoping for billions! Oh boy what a bargain, can't beat free! Happy Halloween to All! What follows is a shaky attempt at documenting the the process on this base. No way around it though, deliberately applied illustrative techniques are required. Also a little corkboard.To start off the build, andost other build ups I do, some sheets of corkboard were broken up. I also used some wizkids scenery bits and some small wooden planks from a hobby shop.The second layer was dirt, broken chunks of putty, and a few headstones where I could fit them. I threw some liquid greenstuff down to fill the textureout a bit..it worked not so well, I'd give it a C+ but after some sadning I found a decent result. The Paint! To begin, a turquoise base.Next, draw the entire t

Olleytoberfest - Reaper Dwarven Brewmeister 02559

Hi All,A quick one before I make dinner and get ready for trick or treaters.A little bug eyed, but the first time in ages I've actually painted a black eye dot with a brush. The apes, with their white eye dots so successful, gave me the courage to try this time.Perhaps I dirtied him up a tad too much with the grunge wash. All the paints were reaper except for craft paints on the base.It was fun to work on a single figure and get him finished. I probably could have done him in fewer, longer sessions, but it was nice to just work on him a bit at a time as time allowed over the month.You can still purchase him, and his barrel toting compadres here.If you painted any Olley's or found any painted ones in your collection that you want to share, let me know.I'm trying to push out the Oldhammer in the New World Zine #3 in the next day or two, in time for Oldhammer in the Jerz 2. I'm just polishing the last bit of the work I did and then abandoned at some point last year.Thanks for looking and commenting.

Sandbox Skirmish Air Support

I'm a big fan of planes and helicopters in AK47, so I'm determined to use some model aircraft in the Sandbox Skirmish project. I already have a couple of 1/144th scale Revell Hawker Hunter kits for ground attack, so that angle is well and truly covered. I don't have any suitable helicopters, however, or at least that's what I thought until I remembered an old 1/100th scale Heller Alouette II kit that I bought in a French supermarket years ago.I had one of these as a gunship in my old AK47 Colonial Settlers army but sold it to a gamer at the local club. It's a lovely little model and surprisingly robust, so ideal for wargaming purposes. The Army Air Corps used them in the 1960's as a stop gap before the Westland Scout was available, so it's entirely reasonable for my British infantry platoon to have one as a spotter and liaison machine, as well as for casualty evacuation purposes. I'll see if I can find it in the loft?

November... time to make that final goal sprint

So it`s the first of november today, meaning the final two months of the year are upon us.And what a year it has been for me, both with big changes in the private (professional) life, and the hobby life.I guess the goal list in the sidebar reflects this, as did the previous article about this that I posted at the year`s halfway mark (more or less) in june.  So I did indeed focus in the past months, and been clearing out some stuff.  Okay, so Tolkien came back to play recently, but in a way that was a welcome change.I feared I was getting a bit "pinked out" by the speed I started crawling for my Marines, so variety makes the palette.Taking a look at all the goals I set for this year at that mark, I did move the Emperor's Children "subfactions" to the eternal list where the ACW used to be.  I won`t be finishing the set mark ups just yet, as I didn`t go on the shopping spree just yet to grab all the wanted models and units.  What won`t stop me from adding some stuff to it though still.That, a

October Express Orders 1 and 2: The Start of the Shang Chinese Project

I recently expanded our Express Service with the schedule changes due to Allison's picking up a gig at a local high school. This expansion is somewhat doubling the amount of the Express limit, and adding a second one as well. Here is the start of that, October 1 and October 2. I had a customer contact me if he could have both slots from October to get started on his Shang Chinese army. So we combined both slots for a due date at the end of October. Here are the results:First four units and an execution sceneWe included movement trays with this set of orders to match the army units.Lone straggler from another project of theirsThis was a fun project and a nice change of pace from the usual suspects but it is back to the regular scheduled projects.

How to build a winter wargaming table

In this tutorial, you will learn, how to build a winter wargaming table. The table will be lightweight and easy to store. To make it even handier, the whole table will be foldable! A few months ago we held our Blood Eagle participation game at a local convention. This was the perfect opportunity for me, to build a new gaming table. I quickly made a list and visited the local hardware store. So let’s build a winter wargaming table! In the first step, you have to cut the foam core to the proper size. In my case, the table should be 3″ x 3″. I used my hotwire cutter for the job, but a sharp knife will work too. In the following step, you have to mark the exact places for your hinges. But you can’t simply place your hinges. You have to sink them. Otherwise, the table will not be plain. And nothing is more annoying than a wobbling gaming table! To sink the hinges, simply cut the foam board until the hinges disappear smoothly as shown in the picture below.   After that, mark the places where

Privateer Press - Kickstarter News

Less than a day left to back this Kickstarter...----------------------- WARNING: CLASSIFIED CONTENT ----LESS THAN 15 HOURS REMAIN UNTIL LEVEL 7 LOCKDOWN!--LEVEL 7 [OMEGA PROTOCOL] is Privateer Press’ best-selling board game, which has been out of print since 2016. Since it sold out several years ago, we have received countless inquiries about when it would be coming back, and original copies of the game currently sell for nearly $300 on the aftermarket. From our perspective, it seems demand for a new edition has reached critical mass, and it’s time to reprint. Thanks to our community and Backers it's happening!-- GET IT ON KICKSTARTER --“There is no Subterra Bravo.”LEVEL 7 is a sinister science fiction setting where nefarious conspiracies conceal the government’s collaboration deep within an underground research facility with an unspeakable alien menace.
