Hello everyone in the night of magic, spells and communing with the dead! At the beginning I will inform you my Dears about my discovery that my daughter is a hidden follower of Nurgle, god of plagues.A few days ago she brought such a virus from the nursery that we are (with wife) try to stand from the floor to this day.It's better but evil doesn't sleep... That's why today's post was supposed to be a bit different, but I didn't have enough time / power for painting (I recommend listening to Lovecraft's stories in fever. New, disturbing experiences guaranteed ;-)). Luckily, however, I had two more archers ready and repainted for my Stirland band, which I just present ...I. Stirland. Part I. HistoryII. Stirland.

Most of the painting is finished on the various Reaper dogs last seen a few weeks ago, and they’ve painted up so nicely I’m going to show them off before they’re entirely finished, which I do not usually do. Centre is Reaper’s Moorhound; flanking him are Reaper Hellhounds. Click for larger. The Moorhound got a black basecoat; the other four got a dark brown basecoat. No particular reason, honestly. Most of the texture was brought out by simple drybrushing in a variety of off-white shades, then some highlights all the way up to pure white, and some selective shading with washes. I pushed the contrast more than I usually do and I think it works really well for these otherwordly demon-dogs. Back view of the Moorhound, flanked by two Reaper Goblin Wolves. Click for larger. The bases all five dogs are on are 40mm rounds built up from sheet styrene and putty; I’ll get flock and tufts on them in the next couple of days. Then I need to figure out stats for these in Pulp Alley 2nd Edition
As I work my way through the Zombicide: Toxic Mall box, I decided to switch up the skin colour of the toxic Zeds. Apologies for the photo quality; I had some weird lighting effect happening, perhaps interacting with the white undercoat and washes for the skin. I finished half of the toxic zombies but didn't post one of the poses because it was a bit over sexualized.The basic zombies are cast in grey and the toxics are casting green so I went with roughly those colours for skin. I'm pretty happy with the results. I wanted a slightly more luminescent green for the skin but whatever. The effect is clear enough and you can tell which is which (below).I wasn't sure what to do with the toxic boss. I figured red on white jockey shorts was a nice contrast to all of the bumpy skin and horns. While this post brings an end to Zomtober, I so have a few more Zeds in the pipeline that will appear over the next few weeks.Up next: A church, some gangsters and some zombies.
Slow Death Games and Elijah Kellogg Join Forces – The Maker of Wild in the Streets to bring Star Breach to us, Joe Public Our friends over at Slow Death Games have dropped the following [...] The post Into the Breach! – Slow Death Games to publish Star Breach appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
It was the make up date for the Second Saturday for the Scrum Club. On the agenda was Lord of the Rings skirmish game by Games Workshop. This was a game run by Josh O’Connor, using the LOTR skirmish rules as written. I played Merry (L) and Josh played Pippin (r). They didn’t have the cool Western blades from the Barrow Downs, per the books. Nor the Elven cloaks, as we aren’t into Lorien yet. Steve played Aragorn, Joe played Frodo, Zach, Rich and Francisco played Nazguls. We were all heroic level characters that were head and shoulders above the regular schlub troops in this game system. Our job was to start touching the Prancing Pony and make it through a break in the hedge and off into the fields beyond. I stayed close to Aragorn the first couple of turns to take advantage of his move bonus. There were Nazgul at all the compass points and covering the retreat. Rather than cross over the bridge and bumping into a ringwraith, I opted to dive in the river and cross it
I picked up a few things from Fenris Games back in June or July, and the first pieces are finally getting completed and onto the gaming table! Two Viking Runestones from Fenris Games. Click for larger. These are “Viking Runestones 2” from Fenris, cast in pale grey resin. Each is about 2″ tall. The carved runes on the front are very finely detailed; I wouldn’t be surprised if they had been laser engraved on something (thin acrylic?) and that was then embedded in putty or something to make up the rest of the stone. Runestones, rear view. 28mm Warlord ECW figure for scale. Click for larger. I’ve got a few other bits and pieces from Fenris in progress. All of their stuff is really high quality, their range is huge, and shipping was fast. Highly recommended!
A little more progress on this project: Here is another comparison picture between various manufacturers of Trojan War figures, with a Victrix hoplite included for scale. This project has been through the wringer in my mind for a long time. My initial enthusiasm was tempered by the long delivery times for both my Redoubt and Foundry orders, with both companies taking about 12 weeks for

Heroes of The Others Board Game. Painted in tabletop standard by me and my wife. I ve allready painted some other minatures from the same game. You can see one of them here.
In May I participated in the latest "Stuffbox" from the Sweetwater Community, the one from TabletopWelt got lost by Hermes - great job guys! But a new box was packed and went on its way. And with an eye on the tracking I knew HANS! would arrive today. A brief ring on the door bell […]
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
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...
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. Fantastic quality of TITAN-FORGE details goes hand in hand with the idea of presenting the figurines' positions (goblins look amazing!)If you don't know TITAN-FORGE yet, visit:https://www.facebook.com/TitanForge/http://titan-forge.com/And now...Witam serdecznie!Zapraszam w ten piękny czwartek na spotkanie z zielonoskórymi piratami od TITAN-FORGE z projektu dostępnego niedawno na Kickstarterze.Dostałem niedawno kilkanaście żywicznych modeli od TITAN-FORGE:Mercenary Cpt.

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!
