Blood in the Bad lands. Week 15. What's so civil about war anyway?


This Sunday with none of Lee's or my armies directly contesting any of the Blood in the Badlands tiles we decided to have an Empire show down in preperation for the ''reconquest of Solland' campaign.

1500 points of Empire it is then . . . .

Blood in the Badlands. Week 14. The Empire strikes back.


With only two games to go before the conclusion of the Blood in the Badlands campaign Phil and I decided to have a throw down despite none of our armies contesting any tiles.

Because of this Phil decided to field an Empire army so he could get his eye in with them before the next campaign kicks off in earnest.

Mournfangs and Cowboys. Not something you get to say everyday!


So after three weeks I finally have some chips from the lead mountain to post.

First up, four Mournfang Ogre cavalry.

Can't lie, I am not the biggest fan of this kit. I feel the riders are too top heavy and it throws off the whole aesthetic for me.

It's a shame as I am generally a fan of the Ogre look, even if it is not a favourate of most people.


I figured I wouid paint this lot as 'the glamour boys' of the Ogre army.

For that reason they got more gold and shiney shiney then any of the other units.


They are only painted to a basic table top level as the Titan forge, croc riders are heads and shoulders above these guys and will always be my first pick if I can only field one unit of Mournfangs.


I have Lano finishing off another two croc riders off for me as he did such an amazing job with my first two.


This means this lot will be pushed even further down the pecking order but at least their done.


Despite only being painted to a 'basic' level, the four of them still took over three weeks to complete!

I have no idea how?


I also managed to get another Outlaw finished for my 'Legends of the old west' posse.


This last one was a surprise entry as I managed to get an hour with the brushes last night and after I zenith sprayed him, he seemed pretty much done!

After a  couple of ink washes and some work on the flesh as well as finishing with some edging  he was one and done.

Not bad for under an hour from start to finish!


I had more good news when I pulled out the remains of the Ogre unpainted stuff and discovered how little was left to do!

Of the ten figures remaining at least four are block coloured and ink washed and awaiting completion.

The downer is two of the last to paint is a bloody great big Giant and a Thunder tusk (with riders) but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.


Now the numbers


Miniatures painted / sold this year = 196

Miniatures bought 113
335 miniatures to go

Legends of the Old West. The return of the Duke!


I had two choices Tuesday . . . . Go into work one day early to get myself sorted for the new academic year OR play little soldiers?

Easy choice really!!!!

After the mauling of the Duke's previous warband he had spent the time on the run collecting all sorts of desperado's to implement his revenge.

Tell Earp the Duke was set to return to 'Mare Street' and Death was riding with him!

Warhammer Fantasy , 2000 point throw down!

Last week Lee and I had a chance to meet up at Lano's to have a 2000 point throw down!

With the four generals of the Badlands scattered to the four winds during the summer break Lee and I decided to try out something new.

Our next campaign will see the four of us play a campaign in the desolation that was previously Solland.

Phil, Lee and I will be playing Imperial forces while Lano has opted for Vampires!

With this in mind Lee wanted to play test a new Imperial army list while I was desperate to get some practise in with my 'Hunter' list for the Badlands campaign.

Only one thing for it . . . . FIGHT . . . . . FIGHT . . . . . . . . FIGHT!

Legends of the Old West. Back to Dodge City!


With the Summer hols in full swing my brother and I got a chance to meet up for a game of 'Legends of the Old West'.

We tried to fly through a full campaign. We failed but squeezed at least two games in.

Kicked off with two new posse's and the classic 'High Noon' scenario.
