Showcase: Blackstone Fortress Negavolt Cultists by SpaceShrimp

Hi everyone, It is me Cat aka SpaceShrimp with the latest instalment in the Blackstone mini-series. More after the Mag-lift.Ohm - my god, these models where shockingly painful to de-mold line. But I re-fused to give up and somehow managed to not break their hair cables, even though I dropped most of them at some point, so I am pretty amped about that.More after the jump

Blackstone Fortress: Ur-Ghuls

I finished up the first four (out of FORTY FOUR!) miniatures from the Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress box.(And they were the easiest ones, at that!).I partly did these ones to experiment with how I wanted to do the bases. I spent an inordinate amount of time cutting jagged little triangle out of plasticard and layering them up on the bases - to make it look like an uneven floor covered with shattered bits of the fortress - but then I painted the whole mess black and also added a small amount of gravel (which was painted purple and blue) and then painted some light blue and violet lines on triangle plasticard bits on the bases - to try and match the game boards... Now I'm not really sure the layered plasticard is even going to be noticed...Ah, well... maybe I'll be able to simplify the process, if they're not going to be noticeable anyway!Ur-Ghul - from Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress by Games Workshop.These are denizens of the Blackstone Fortress - they have no eyes and hunt by small and s

Game Plan 2019

Having had a quick look back at 2018, it's time to make some plans for 2019. Now, these aren't written in stone plans... they're kind of like the Pirates Code: "They're more like... 'guidelines'".Board GamesChallengesFirst off, last years challenge was ill-defined and we just picked games we wanted to play and didn't really consult the rest of the family and it ended up being a mix of games I wanted to play with the family and games I wanted to play, but probably not with the family... so I'm kind of separating things into two separate challenges...10x10 Family challengeThese are 10 games we've agreed to as a family to play TOGETHER at least TEN times in the next year:Warhammer Quest: Blackstone FortressTerraforming MarsSplendorCentury: Golem EditionCastles of BurgundyShadowrun: CrossfireSentinels of the MultiverseRace for the GalaxyAbyssPower Grid DeluxePersonal ChallengesThese are a few more boardgames I'D like to play over the next year - some I might play with the family, others I might play with others..

Grey Knight Commanders (and other stuff)

Happy Holidaze to all, and, for those that celebrate it, a very merry Christmas to you all.Over the weekend I managed to finish up three more Grey Knights - all command elements.From left to right a Brotherhood Champion, a Brother Captain, and a Justicar.Brother Champion Tyson - a Headquarters element for the Grey Knights (also a commander option for Kill Team). I put him on a slightly larger base to make him stand out from the others a bit. Unfortunately I two other metal Grey Knight Strike Squads off eBay and both include this figure as the squad's Justicar... Ah, well... They'll go on smaller bases...Brother Captain Alan - in Terminator Armour. A second Headquarters element for the Grey Knights. Once I have the two other Strike Squads painted I'll be able to field these as an allied "Battalion" Detachment. I have no real desire to add any more to this force.I don't know... I guess if some one GAVE me a couple of Land Raiders or I happened upon some of those old school metal Grey Knight Terminators...Justic
