Black Friday Wargaming

This Friday I played Jiri and his Skaven at 1000 points.

Unfortunately I forgot my camera but I can summerise Jiri's misery as;

a) Shooty Shooty = mostly miss.

b) Shooty shooty = Flame throwers missfire and blow up, killing 8 Skaven.

c) Magic = Rubbish.

d) Get Gutter runners gunned down by Outriders, runaway.

e) More shooty shooty = the other flame thrower blows up killing 9 Skaven

f) Jiri chases down and shreds one of my wizards with 2 useless spells (awaking of the woods and there is no bloody trees on the field!).

g) Whats left of Jiri's Clan rats get charged and trampled.

h) Jiri ends the battle with 5 Gutter runners. I end the battle with 15 of my original 20 figures still standing.

It ended as a very black Friday for Jiri and the poor fella suffered the worse rolling I have EVER witnessed.

Although it was very entertaining for the other fellas present to witness the self destruction and utter failure of Jiri's Skaven to do anything useful I had to feel for the fella!

Warmachine and the witching hour

Things you should never have to say on a weeknight................. "Mate its 2am, just roll the die. I have to be up for work in 4 hours!"

Painting my brother's malformed Willy ............................................................ (minatures)!

It's been a crap week and I am just desperate to paint something to get into a Zen state.

I don't have much spare time and

1) I don't want to batch paint
2) I don't have access to any Reaper Bones so I'm stuck for options.

That is until I spot these on the window ledge (I keep hoping they will get the message and jump).

Abominations and not of the Chaos sort! 

My brothers Malformed Willy .......... minatures!

He bought them just on the basis of the web site pictures and the abominations which turned up leave a lot to be desired.

Willy hang your head in shame!

The good news is it does not matter what kind of half arsed, speed paint job I do on these it can only make them look better.

So an hour of slopping about with paint and..................

 I decided to make the middle fella look like the Joker from Batman and it seemed to work well.

The thing on the left reminded me of the awful Prince August abominations of my childhood.

At least I felt I had blown out the painting cob webs.

Say what you want about GW but these pieces for crap would never have been released if GW still held the reins of Blood Bowl.

Goblin Porn. Warhammer Fantasy battle

As a kid "Goblin porn" was the name we gave to discarded pages of a certain type of "Gentleman's magazine" we found in the bushes while playing at the local park, but now after todays game against Tookey and his Goblin horde "Goblin Porn" has a whole new meaning for me!

Goruks Leatherheads. Vulture warriors from dimension X

Unit two of Algae worlds Garrison for Vulture Warriors from Dimension X.............. Goruk's Leatherheads.

"All present and correct Guv"

Have been working on these lads through Orctober but time and tides got in the way and never got to post them in time

Space Hulk. Mission one

Al and I are really on a roll and once again the shiny, shiny box was opened,

Having played the prequel published it White Dwarf and "suicide mission" (it was quick to set up) it made sense to start at mission one rather then dip in and out of the missions.

Fear the puppet princess of rebuke!

I suppose playing in a toy shop it had to happen.

Big kids start playing with the toys!

Once again Ed was "thinking through his turn" (i.e. taking bloody ages to roll a die) when Macca reached for this......................

I love painting days like this!

With all the bulk painting going on at the moment I do love painting days like this,

a wide variety of mini's on the table and lots of open pots of paint.
