2014.... a review.

As is customery at this time of year I have decided to sit down and try to review my first year back in tabletop wargaming...... and what a first year!

First the good news;

Within 12 months my painting has gone from this.......

to something like this.......

Thats all free hand!

1st Corps casting. American Civil War Dismounted Cavalry in Slouch hats

Yesterday I was given the greatest Christmas present of all by the misses. "I'm taking the kids out all day so the house is yours! I'll be back at 4pm!"

It was really hard not to dance a little jig as they walked out the door.

First thing I did was run up stairs and grab these blokes for undercoating.....

Knocked out in under 2 Hours. I LOVE having the house to myself!
They are from a company called 1st Corps casting I bought this lot from their Ebay Shop

Christmas, it's for the kids really!

yer 40 year odd man kids!

Thank you Secret Santa!

A painted Bloodbowl game 26 years in the making!

So 26 years after buying Blood bowl my Brother and I finally got round to playing a game with two fully painted teams!

Unfortunately it looks like the camera lens got condensation or turkey fat, or double cream etc on it as most of the photos are out of focus or whited out or just plain crap

I think my brother took the term "28mm photo porn" too literally and smeared the lens in vaseline for a classic 70's soft porn effect.

Thankfully there were two decent photos to record the event!

The Mauraders line up for the kick off

An action shot just before "the Gentlemen of the Realm" send one over the top to equalise.

The game ended one all and it seems my brothers fiance is a much better player then he is!

Hopefully we will get another game in before going back to work as he is starting to construct his own stadium and it is a sterling effort for his first attempt!

My brother's dice tower as a WIP. A cracking effort.

Peace on Earth and good will to all men.... unless your a bloody Anglo Dane!!!

With the lull between Black Friday and Manic Monday and "Oh fuck it's Tuesday (!)" Al and I managed to sneak in a game of SAGA.

I decided Al's present (as well as some Anglo Dane Saga Die), should be a sound whooping at the hands of my maurading Vikings!

Seasons Beatings from Riotville!

Seasons greetings to one and all.

Just thought I had to share this with you........

I'm walking down the stairs with some minis to prime for the festive painting seasons when the misses pipes up with..

"Don't forget you have to put the Kids Trampoline together (their christmas present) so they can see it Christmas morning"

"Ok I can prime the minis during the Tea breaks no worries"....

And then the construction begins......

Hour and thirty minutes later I end up with this

 yep its a 10 foot Trampoline in a 12 foot garden!!!!!!

Introducing "Her Majesties Gentlemen of the Realm" Blood bowl Team. Victorian Human Blood bowl Team.

My Saga begins!

Once again Al and I managed to meet up for a game of little soldiers. With us both being destroyed for work the next day after our last game of Warmachine we decided we needed a change.

Al had been on Ebay and snapped up various armies of Gripping beast Saga miniatures so 4 points of Saga it is!

They are in your face aggression. I have to play Vikings!

Warhammer Fantasy Battle; Lore of Shadows

So as many WHF generals have had to do, I have played through most of the different spell decks with regards to my WHF wizards.

First it was “Well you only have 15 models so you should play “Lore of Life”

Then it was “Well you do not have any ranged attacks so you should play “Lore of Fire”

Then it was “Well you have a cavalry force so it has to be “Lore of Beasts”

And finally I think I have found the motherload “Lore of Muther F*@king Shadows!” the one Jiri and Lano love to hate!
