Azog’s Vanguard & first BC match

It was a pleasant experience to finish this new Vanguard Force from Gundabad for the Battle Companies expansion. Painting 6 models in a row is something I can still do without getting too much distraction in between. I am pretty curious to see how the elite from Mount Gundabad will perform in their first match. I think I will nominate the 3 Orcs wearing shields as the heroes. In the meantime Flattervieh and me had our first match with two Battle Companies made from our old stock of miniatures. It was Rohan fighting Moria in the scenario 6 (stand your ground). All I can say is that it was (not surprisingly) a whole lot of ...

Grombrindal

This is probably the most enduring and relevant character of the Warhammer World of all times? Yet I never painted one of the various incantations of the White Dwarf…until now! Fortunately my club mate Rekrom painted the Black Gobbo and we will soon try them out along our teams as Star Players. Grombrindal will of course fight erm play along my Barak Varr Bowlers Dwarf Team. ...

Sho gad adol!

Still working on my Gundabad / Azog’s Legion Battle Company. Almost done as there are only two Orcs left without paint. Maybe I can finally test the Battle Companies setting during the coming days. ...

Gundabad

Now that I finally got my hands on the very exciting Battle Companies expansion I have a problem (again). There are lots and lots of teams I would like to give a try. Well then…let’s start. After the first Dwarf of the Iron Hills I painted a test Orc from Mount Gundabad. We’ll have to wait and see which team (or maybe even another one?) will be finished first. ...

Welcome the Crookback Creepers!

Now that the last two Gutter Runners were painted I am finally there! The Skaven Blood Bowl Team – The Crookback Creepers – are ready to enter the field. Really looking forward to play them. I hope they don’t get mashed up to easily…I am used to the tough Dwarves and their fragile nature might come in as quite a shock. The next question would be “which team is next”? ...

Companies of Battle

I am super excited regarding the upcoming release of the Middle-Earth Battle Companies book! Of course I preordered a copy and will go and fetch it next saturday. What an awesome excuse to start new projects, get them painted fast and even play with them shortly after the project’s start. Another great thing is that most LotR-Players will immediately have enough painted miniatures to start a game or two. But of course I wanted something new for this setting aswell. My first pick were the Dwarves of the Iron Hills. Naturally other projects are lurking already right after them. ...

Raaaaaaaaa!

Here he comes! Hailing from the Black Mountain Blades, one of the most notorious Star Players! Welcome Grim Ironjaw! I’ve always wanted to paint up some Star Players for Blood Bowl. Especially all the Dwarves available. I picked Grim to be the first one. Of course the new Forge World sculpt is cool, but I prefer the old one. ...

Furry Formation

This time I painted four Skaven at once. The last three Linemen and the last remaining Blitzer were due. Now it’s only two Gutter Runners left until the Crookback Creepes are able to challenge the other Aleatores’ teams. ...

Characters of the XVIth Legion

The recently finished Sons of Horus Terminators gave me the motivation to work a bit more on the XVIth Legion. For the last missions of the Betrayal at Calth board game I am in need of yet another Legion Veteran Sergeant. So I sat down and came up with a miniature made from no less than 7 different GW / FW kits. While chosing a name for the new Sergeant (a tradition I kept from the very beginning of this project) I thought that it would be a good idea to look back on all the named characters I painted for the Sons of Horus so far. ...

Sons of Horus Cataphractii squad

While visiting the local GW some days ago I noticed a test match of the new Shadespire game. Suddenly it came to my mind (looking at the hex-fields on the board) that I really would like to go on with Flattevieh’s and my own little campaign playing the Betrayal at Calth or better said Betrayal at Isstvan III board game. For the next mission there were only two Terminators lacking paint which stood around here readily assembled for quite some time now. So I didn’t hesitate and painted both of them. Hopefully Flattervieh’s World Eater Terminators won’t take long for him to finish. ...
