The Orcs have returned to the north, this time hunting for Dragon Eggs. If raised by evil forces these beasts can destroy whole cities, so it is up to Rockjaw and his group to stop them before they make off with such deadly cargo!
Good morning!Today is the weekend and I am inviting for a new entry on DwarfCrypt! It will be green and in the climate of my favorite oldhammer (and middlehammer, for which my greatest expansion into Warhammer was). Recently, my long-awaited package from Warmonger Miniatures, in which there were a few orcs, to my emerging band of green brutes. And in this enthusiasm I painted one of them. I added excellent shields from Rotten Factory to the original model (and the previous orc).I cordially invite you!Orcs dont establish kingdoms or states as people do. Still, there are lands that are under total control of the Orcs or their smaller cousins - the Goblins. Most Orcs distinguish between two types of land: "green" and "other pieces". The more ambitious warlords see the world more accurately: "my green", "green what will be my" and "other pieces".Orcs and Goblins are the most numerous in the Badlands. There are also other areas in which they remai
Since I rebuild the Maulers with a narrative approach and would also try to follow that in play, I've of course taken a look at the new rules and discovered the section for (in)famous coaching staff. The nice thing about the section is that the new staff are not optional but official rules, which means […]
While Dennis summarized 2018 in his annual review quite smoothly, I‘ll take a look into the glass orb for 2019 and do what a true hobbyist can do best: make plans and try to do everythin possible that they turn out differently! Accordingly my main point on the list of good intentions for the new […]
It is one of my habits to give each of my coaches a motivational mascot and since I have a fable for Squigs, it was once again a specimen of the red-skinned maws on two legs. The model is from Goblin Guild and captures the atmosphere of Blood Bowl quite wonderfully. Grumbla Boz was pulling […]
Two more recycled Warhammer figures made it into the fan block. While I mostly repositioned parts on the other models, this time I modified one of the Orcs with a few parts that were still in my bits box. As I like to use Blackorc elbow pads on other models as shoulder armor, I still […]
A few more things rolling off the workbench that I finished up over the weekend....First up; Ironskull's Boyz for Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire. These are for a friend of mine that bought into Shadespire last year. I painted the Stormcast Eternals over the Holidaze, got the Bloodbound Warband done a week later (so he could actually play the game). Then I got busy trying to get stuff done for the Shadow War: Armageddon Campaign. Then I started dragging my ass on these and didn't get the Sepulchral Guard done until June... and I'd STARTED these around the same time... but then Imperial Knights (which I haven't even finished one of!)... and then Summer Holidaze... and then Kill Team... So I figured once ToonCon was over, these should be my FIRST PRIORITY! (Well, except for the rest of the Ad Mech Kill Team...)Ironskull's Boyz for Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire (from Games Workshop)Yeah, those are snowflakes on the ground... I like taking pictures outside in natural light. On
More old Warhammer miniatures have gotten a stylish makeover and are now loyal fans of the Maulers. It is easy to see what effect the restauration of an old figure can have. I remember quite well that I didn't finish the musician's drums at the time because I felt burned out after more than twenty […]
In my last article on the Maulers I introduced Bonkh and Gabru. Today's introduction is a bit shorter, but it's a short character as well, so it seemed alright. I rummaged in my bitsbox for suitable models for Blood Bowl fans and found an old crew member of the doom diver catapult. I never had […]
As part of Orktober, Games Workshop delivers a stand-alone boxed set of orkish racing - Speed Freeks! It was already announced back in August on Warhammer Fest Europe and there were rumours about a revival of Gorka Morka, so now we know what these were about. To be honest, when the rumours about a Gorka […]
In the introduction, I talked about giving the team a new paintjob. As explained the team color should not be red, because I had already painted the Gouged Eyes in their classic look and after quality had suffered from a rushed attempt, I couldn't get satisfied with blue anymore either. Yellow was a color I […]
At some point in late February 2001, I started to cobble together an Orc team for Blood Bowl. Although I had already painted the team from the 3rd Edition boxed set, I wanted a team that looked a little more contemporary and individual. Since most of the Orc teams had red as their main color […]
Hi All,My boy wanted to play some Warhammer and I had an idea I've wanted to try out for awhile and needed to remind myself how 3rd Edition Magic worked. So we decided to take two wizards each. The idea was a wizard and his apprentice. So one 15th Level (to get some 2nd level spells) and one 5th level.We rolled for magic points and spells as per the tables in Warhammer Armies.Here's the report. ( I went with a rotoscope filter as the pictures weren't all that great.)As you can see we also had to make due with the figures we had to hand. A chaos warrior subbed for the Undead Champion. Primed Zombies the place of Skeletons and a Giant Rat in the place of the Demonic Steed. I know I made the Ghost of HG Wells cry, but I've put off my son too many times in the past and I don't want to kill his enthusiasm for the game.In the end it's all about fun.Thanks for looking.
Hello everyone!We have another weekend, so a new entry on DwarfCrypt coming. Today, thanks to Grabblecast friends for a set, I invite you to the next article about hobbits from the of J.R.R. Tolkien. The reviewed elements are resin tree trunks from the set (Stumps with Mushrooms), which you can use on mockups, dioramas or miniatures bases. Especially for this occasion, I painted a few sample models and placed them on stumps - you can see the final effect below.'Stumps with Mushrooms' consists of 5 resin stumps overgrown with a wood hub.Cast elements are very nice, and the sculpture will satisfy every player and collector.I will return to the set on the occasion of the next models for Wood Elves (or Wargs!), And today ...The Hobbits, despite their short stature, are relatively strong. If they only exert themselves, they can lift their weight equal to their weight, and sometimes even heavier things!Halflings are not masters of climbing, but easily climb the trees and keep on small ga
I was taking some photos of these guys for a Facebook group and realised I'd never posted them here.I must have mentioned before that I'm a big fan of Tom Meier's sculpts and these are among my favourites. They're all originals from the early eighties,...
