Review & Unboxing: Wood Elves / Wanderers WardancersWarheim: Tancerze Wojny

Due to bad luck, I wasn't able to participate in this year's Warheim Fantasy Skirmish tournament but that doesn't mean I stopped recruiting models for my Athel Loren Wood Elves squad. Today I want to show you 3 new miniatures - the Wardancers of Loec. Before the destruction of the Old World, those were the models of Wardancer Lord (in the middle) and Wardancers Command Group (including the musician - drummer). In Age of Sigmar Wanderers army, they are still Wardancers and their leader is called the Bladesinger (in the middle).One won't be able to buy Wardancers in normal retail, so you need to "hunt" for them on internet auctions and usually they end up very expensive.Those Wardancers are made of metal and there are square base for them. You might think that those are quite old sculptures but the details are of a very good quality. Especially the Wardancer Lord makes a good impression and all of them have "scenic" poses and bases so I

Pastel and flesh lacquer paint sets from Osaka, Japan

So did I travel to Osaka, Japan? Nah, I wish! But my brother-in-law did. And he was kind enough to ask if I wanted anything while he was checking out the multitude of hobby shops in the area. In that moment, I felt like a kid in a candy store without the monies to buy much of anything. There are so many scale model kits, resin figurines and paints in my wish list that even a cargo plane couldn't

Stark Bowmen [Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game]

On to the next unit box!  Stark Bowmen, for when rushing things like wolves, berserkers, or great cavalry into your opponent just isn't enough to get the job done.   There are three of each of the following miniatures.   I decided to try and see how these would look in their tray, as they would on the table.  I still need to figure out how to take a good picture of this, but hey, I tried!Looks pretty cool in person, at least.Next time, I'll post a bunch more of the Kickstarter exclusive stuff!

Tiny Epic Zombie Unboxing

I backed this one on Kickstarter, and it arrived today, which is awesome!  I expect most of these pictures will be nicely duplicated on the Kickstarter page (in better quality!), but heck, doesn't hurt to have them multiple places!The package, when it arrived, was nice and small, a common theme among their "Tiny Epic" line of games. Comes with a nice little rulebook (20 pages, including the front and back cover). The first thing under the rulebook was the Deluxe Edition content.  Four new player cards:Each player card has a zombie size, as well!Five Search cards, two new weapons, and a Dog Meeple:More on the weapons in a bit.We have a pack of tokens that deal with the scenarios (Room and Objective Tokens):A die for melee:Apologies, I could not get this picture any more clearA stack of 32 search cards, including Zombies, Equipment, and Events:Four meeples:Twelve items:Now, about the items.  The meeples have little holes in their hands.  They can use those holes to carry stuff.&nbs

Bolton Bastard's Girls Unboxing [Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game]

I need to start getting these out quicker, as I'm going to be closing on a house in about a week and a half, and it's a pain leaving these out instead of packing them!Today, I opened up the Bolton Bastard's Girls box, featuring a lot of war dogs!  I'll spare most of my commentary this time, the pictures mostly speak for themselves.     Four of each of the following dogs are included. Two each of the following hunters are included.  I've also taken a picture of each of the poses from the front, and from the back.  That picture above shows a bit of a strange crease on the cape going left to right (versus the 'natural' fold of the cape, going top to bottom).  It looks like a scratch, but both miniatures of this pose have that.  It doesn't look like it is intended, honestly, but it probably won't be noticeable upon painting. And that's it!  Nice short post today.  Will try to get the rest of these units/releases/whatevers up over the next
