Four Year Anniversary

Another year has passed and it is now four years ago since the Aleatorblog opened its  gates with its first post. We’re basically still doing what we used to do back then yet we don’t get to see each other that often anymore. But most of us are still working like crazy behind our hobby desks to get these little plastic men ready for tabletop warfare. So we figured it could be fun to take a closer look at our starting point and the climax of our own brush history. What were the Aleatores’ first miniatures, what are their ...

Regarding Slayers

Regarding Dwarf Slayers Games Workshop has had a long tradition of coming up with several sculpts. I started out with the era of the Slayersculpts around the time of the 2nd Blood Bowl edition and their brethren in Warhammer accompanied us for quite a long time. Then there came only two new sculpts for Mordheim which had slightly downscaled facial features and smaller hands. Then there came only one plastic Slayer which was the first sculpt I didn’t like that much. And now as the Age of Sigmar and the Fyreslayers are upon us I doubt that we’ll get to see improved new plastic Slayers from GW. So what can a Dwarf do if he intends to include ...

More “volunteers” for the Dawi Zharr

The first matches of Border Princes Skirmish are over now and were real fun actually. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that yet another team of Chaos Dwarves is due. Therefore Nagrot’zarr is in need of more Hobgoblin support. As I will need a full unit of them for our 500 points plans anyway I finished them all at once. But maybe a full Hobgoblin skirmish team would be a good idea aswell? ...

Heldrax Goretouched

Here comes the first painted miniature of the Gorechosen box I got for Christmas recently. Heldrax Goretouched is a really cool miniature and it was a lot of fun to paint him. The horns around his neck really stand out and give him something special. ...

Bretonnian Wine

Just like my Khorne Skirmish Team the Bretonnians are still work in progress. Today I added a very special dog of war. It is Gui le Gros sculpted by legendary Michael Perry in 1996. This has to be one of the coolest miniatures of the whole Warhammer range ever, if you ask me of course. Luckily I am not alone here as he entered the White Dwarf hall of fame some time ago. Unfortunately there are no rules for him in the most recent armybook thus I have to field him as a regular Peasant Bowmen. In my skirmish team he became a dog of war though. Delivering fine bretonnian wine from Bordeleaux to the men, ...

Sound the Horn

During the last weeks I played some matches with my new Night Goblin skirmish team which was a hell lot of fun. Especially the Squig Hoppers were a blast to field. Of course this gave new motivation to work on my still WIP-teams such as the much more elite Warriors of Chaos / Khorne team. They are especially fragile against rout tests due to their low number. That’s why the new musician comes in quite handy. ...

Out of the Dark

Out of the dark the Night Goblins march to war. Or better said they are gathering for a small vanguard force first. With the last three spear men I have 20 miniatures from under the mountains of the Eight Peaks finished and ready for some skirmish fun. Painting them was pretty entertaining and went quite fast as I already had more than half of the team ready because of my Warhammer Quest project. I am curious to see how these little fellas will stand the test of their first matches. ...

Grudgit Backstabba

Grudgit Backstabba is an ambitious Night Goblin from the ever-growing crooked moon tribe of the vast caves under the Eight Peaks. His fame is yet not big enough that he has caught the mighty Warlord Skarsnik’s attention yet. But he managed to rise above his fellow greenskin brethren and that alone is a remarkable peak in a Goblin’s life. We’ll have to wait and see how Grudgit and his bunch of Night Goblins will stand the test of the skirmish battles to come. Now I only need to finish three additional Goblins with Spears and I am ready for a match! ...
