28mm


An Arkham Halloween

I hosted a Halloween-themed game at the club this week, using the Gotham adaptation of Tribal and a bunch of horror-themed 28mm figures I've collected over the years. Chen, Richard, Terry and long-time lost club member Mike played along with me.Each faction had a set of objectives:Penguin needed to rescue some villains incarcerated in Arkham in order to bolster his chances at winning the mayoralty election.Batman needed to stop Penguin.Dr. Charles Brown, Warden, needed to prevent escapees and collect some additional subjects... errr... patients.The Ghostbusters were looking to set up a franchise in Gotham and needed to bust some ghosts, monsters and villains.There were also three groups of cultists summoning various monsters and ghouls that attacked whomever was handy.The Arkham crowd moved out of its fenced yard and immediately ran into random monster trouble with a Gentleman and, soon thereafter, a giant worm.Penguin made a bee-line for Arkham to spring some villains but had to tangle with a toothy horror.B

Cirith Ungol Uruk-hai

Nothing to spectacular in this post to be honest, as these are the first Uruk-hai of Cirith Ungol that I painted up.Now, I keep "paint logs" for my models, to have references when I paint up more of certain troops in the future, and these models have been the first of it's kind as a try out for the colour scheme.In the future, I will be painting up at least some more of his brethren as well as their "leader" Shaggrath, but for now, these three are the ones needed for the Cirith Ungol battle company to be finished.For a "full" army, the list shares a lot of units with Mordor / Barad-dur / Angmar in the end, so if one builds a large army of Mordor, one can field one of the others just as well, as only some characters or a small unit left or right diversify the forces mainly consisting of orcs... And as such, these add 25 points to my Mordor force...

[EN] Goblin Pirates ! (TITAN-FORGE: Deck Goblins #1)

Welcome!This beautiful Thursday, I invite you to a meeting with green-skinned pirates from TITAN-FORGE from a project recently available on Kickstarter.I have recently received several resin models from TITAN-FORGE:Mercenary Cpt. Rodrigo De Ogra (who will join to my Averlanders as a mercenary ogre)Deck Goblins,climate (like Gork and Mork) goblin heroes,Dwarven Swashbuclers,of which I decided to paint the first two goblin pirates.The models look great.

Zomtober: Doc Frank and Freddie

The International Rules of Zomtober require one Zed per week. I am a bit behind on painting this week but I did finish a 28mm Frankenstein kit from Pulp Figures.Here we have Igor and Doctor Frankenstein animating a corpse. Overall, happy with the figures but I see I was overly enthusiastic with the grey paint on the bases.Then we have the Monster (which I'm calling a Zed). Nice figure. I fiddled a long time to try to get the black to work properly (an increasingly desperate set of washes, dry brushings, and dips).Freddie sits in the cage I bought last year from Red Claw pretty nicely. Overall, a sweet little set. I chose to paint the doctor and Igor a bit more modern-looking than might be appropriate to fit in with my pulp and superhero figures.Up next: Maybe a report from the club!

Goal Completed: 700 points Minas Tirith force

The next painting goal that can be scratched of the list for 2019, is the force of Gondor I wanted to paint this year.Yeah, that means a lot of silver and black has been used for all the rank and file...With the batch of warriors I posted earlier, this now means the number has been broken, and here is a small clip to have a look at the force and how it stands now (though one of the Faramir's, under the Rule of One, will get regular captain duty I guess).I'll be adding to this force for sure over the next year as I still have heaps of sprues and characters for it, but for now, it is put to the side for the remainder of 2019...

Sisters of Battle for FriendsCon

On top of my 2mm madness, another project I've been working on these past few months has been putting together a Sisters of Battle force for a friends tournament that we just had just a few days ago. Byron hosted all six of us at his house with a delicious BBQ lunch and supper - a great day out. I'll post a couple shots of the event at the end of this.Last winter I debuted my first efforts with this project, using models kindly provided by IainW, a long time participant of the Painting Challenge and all around good egg (thanks Iain!). As I mentioned in that post, this is not my first foray into the Sisters of Battle, as many years ago I had collected a sizeable force only to regrettably sell it off. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to reconstitute (reconsecrate?) my collection of Adepta Sororitas (nerdspeak for the Sisters) and so have been furiously collecting, building and painting models for the past few months.I understand that the Sisters will have a new Codex-guidebook-thingy coming out soon, so t

[EN/PL] Stirland. Part II. Inhabitants / Mieszkańcy (Deathjacks captain #1)

Welcome!Following the blow, today is the second entry about the team from Stirland.In the first part I presented some information about the land itself and its history, and today I will look at the population of this province of the Empire.         For the entry I used the model of an old nobleman from Warhammer Quest, to whom I added a hat and repainted it to match the color of people from Stirland. I also changed the baseand added the name.I invite you!I. Stirland. Part I. History---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------"Bunch of bumpkins, if you ask me."—Altdorf merchantStirland does not take kindly to strangers, Elves, or modern ways.Descended from the Asoborn tribe of old, Stirlanders are a short, thickset people, much like their Ostermark neighbours. Dark of hair and suspicious of strangers, their bloodline has remained one of the most pure within the Empire. Some folk point out this is

Bendy Bayou, 1862.

Our next AB1 game will be the American Civil War, for which I'm preparing scenario. Unfortunately, I played with Black Powder only one game for that period and it was a long time ago. To refresh the rules I was invited to Bill's house for a small game.Nasza kolejna grą grupy AB1 będzie amerykańska wojna secesyjna, do której przygotowuję scenariusz. Niestety, do tej pory z zasadami Black Powder rozegrałem jedynie jedna grę dotyczącą tego okresu i było to dość dawno.

Terror at the Top of the World! 28mm Pulp 80's Survival Horror game

October is great time for some Table Top Horror themed games to be run and what better genre than in the Pulp 1980s.This scenario is a mash up of sorts, combining a Horror movie with the 80's action stars of GI JOE and I think it works, especially giving a little nod to Cobra-La and it's Bio Horrors that have existed before man, hidden in the ice...The game begins with the players at the end of the table, there aircraft downed by a firefight above.  In front of them lays an abandoned Cobra facility, or is it?The Factions, Joe and Cobra are on opposite sides but both must commandeer a vehicle on the other end of the table to escape.Each player gets 2 Characters, no Ninjas.  Below is the list I usedJoesCobraAce and SnowjobDestro and The BaronessWild Bill and IcebergKwinn and Dr. MindbenderLift Ticket and LifelineTomax and XamotScarlett and RoadblockCrystal Ball and Wild WeaselObjectivesSecure an operational vehicle and escape off a table edge.Victory PointsEach Character Escaped = 5 VPEach Discovery M

Orktober 2019 – Ork-Mech Lootas

Hello! More waves of yellow and blue Waagh are advancing. In this Orktober-post I would like to present you a large unit of Ork Lootas, which was prepared by our fantastic team.

Zomtober: Call the doctor!

I'm grinding my way through the Zombicide Toxic Mall box this Zomtober. A challenge with these boxes is limited poses. I thought I would do a small number up as medical staff from a hospital or clinic that had turned.Overall, they are a touch drabber than I had hoped. But they fit the bill.They are a little smaller than some Heroclix figures that I have along the same lines.Up next: Some Astronaut gaming, some Zed-soccer teams, and maybe some more pulp.

Mordor Standard Bearer

A small but essential addition to my Mordor force, the first banner for the army.Banners are incredibly handy in the game, and as such I just needed to have at least one to go with my rabble of orcs.While a basic warrior, albeit an expensive one at 30 points, this guy just will have to lurk at the back of the lines of orcs and provide that all to important bonus to my main line as a result.He will definitly be joining the force I will in all probability field at the tournament in november!
