Cobby gets into Dreadball

Regular viewers will have seen a few posts over the years showing some of my stepsons early efforts in painting some of his little men. Recently we have been playing quite a bit of Dreadball, and Jacob asked for a Teraton team for his birthday a few weeks ago so he could paint it up himself:


He's done a pretty good job with these, and with some more practice he'll be crushing my humans haha! I am planning an Asterian team to use in our next dreadball league at the club so I will bump them up then schedule to get some games in with him.

He also painted up some of his forgefathers for warpath:


I love the forgefather range, its really quite unique and characterful, They are one of the armies im looking at when warpath gets the kickstarter treatment next year hehe

Gatormans - 2nd Posse and Feralgeist

The second posse below will help give my fledgling force real staying power on the field in small games of 35pts or less... bigger games will need that 3rd posse!


The Feralgeist in the second picture is a cheeky little solo who can be used to keep dead beasts on the field for longer (Yours and your opponents), and unless they dedicate some magic to killing him there is naff all they can do about it haha

Gatormans - Bloody Barnabus

Every Hordes army needs a Warlock so here is my first one:

Bloody Barnabus

Barny is the big bad fella that started up the Blindwater Congregation, he's a cranky old git who was so badass that he might be the first gatorman to die from old age... being over a 1000yrs old already!

This wasn't good enough for him so he has embarked on a mad quest to ascend to godhood by killing thousands of people haha

Born on the Bayou - Blindwater Congregation for Hordes

To maintain my "Competitive edge" in the cutthroat world of Warmachine and Hordes I felt I needed a Gatormans list to compliment my pigs for certain match ups... That one list has now turned into 100pts of them with every option hahaha

This is the first unit I have painted for them:


Gatorman Posses are one of the best units in the game and will form the core of just about every list I use except Rask's theme force. I have three units of these to get done so they will be a lot of the early updates.

Gators are a minion force like the pigs so it made sense to link them together with a basic scheme, in this case the yellow of the farrow clothing and the gators skin colouration!

Unleashing the Ito: Mizuki

Mizuki Ito is finished, just needed to do the basing this morning:


Whilst she might not be able to turn hapless heroes into stone like the real Medusa, she can still put the fear of god into the enemy on the table! She can buff friendlies with the poison trait, and since the ito can give that out to just about anyone she will be gold in a well constructed list.

Conspiracy of the Cult: Yugio

This is Yugio, the latest release for the Cult of Yurei faction in Bushido:


The model is brilliant and a joy to paint, so detailed and full of character! He's also pretty handy in the game too, able to reduce the cost of friendly kii feats and disrupt the enemies ability to generate kii all together haha.

Searforge Commission: Tactical Arcanist Corps

I had picked these up as part of my Cephalyx army but subsequently sold that on before I did any work on them. I kept this unit out of the trade as they would find an acceptable home in y small Searforge force:


The dwarves are a small army I use from time to time but I will be steadily building them up to a full collection, especially having seen the art for the Rhulic Battle Engine spoiled on the forums... Hopefully it will be along in the Reckoning book due in March which will spur me on to add to my forces hehe.

Drune Minotaur

Twilight: Kickstarter goodies have arrived!

A pleasant surprise greeted me this morning as a big brown box from Twilight Miniatures arrived in the post yeah boi!


First out of the box was the starter kit which has the resin activation stones and the metal combat stones which replace dice for the most part in the game:

Plutons Mechanicals, one of my two starter forces of around 250pts in the game, plenty to get me and Jacob into battling around Anyaral. The Mechanicals are a Delgon force, a northern branch of Fubarni that split from the Empire many years previous and now are waging war against them!

The second of my starter forces are the Dhogu Raiders, a more primitive Fubarni culture who often serve as mercenaries to the Delgon. I really like these models, especially the Warlord who rides a yeti/goat monster haha

Next up are some of the bonus items I acquired through my pledge level, a resin Gil Marshall, Baby Gil and Engineer Beru, all special characters that can be used in the game.

One of the stretch goals was a full map that Mike had wanted to create for a long time. Its hand drawn and very detailed! This will look great framed and on the wall of my games room :-D
Chronicles of Anyaral is the compilation of the two earlier books and the one funded by the Kickstarter. A few months ago Mike sent me a draft copy for some QA and I have to say its a fantastic read, even more so now I have it in book form rather than on my tablet. 

Another stretch goal was to create stat cards for all the models in the game, very handy for speeding up play as it saves thumbing through the rulebook. The pack includes some blank ones which will come in very handy for the next photo...

Frenu!!!! An alpha playtest fourth culture for the game I have signed up for do some testing on. This is the rules for them as the models are still being created but I cant wait to get cracking on them.
An awesome box of toys to get me started playing Twilight and im looking forward to building and painting up my forces in the near future

Dad's Army: Civvy Street

The 11 civilian models in the set are now completed to:

The "Baddies" Warden Hodges, The Verger and the Reverend

The Main Cast in civilian gear
That's the full set done now, hopefully the Wife's Dad will like them for his birthday haha. This set is much recommended for fans of the show, the fact they are useable in Bolt Action or 7TV is just a bonus :-D

Dad's Army: Corporal Jones

As the great man said... they don't like it up em!


Jones in fatigues was done as a tester for the 7 soldier versions of the main cast, im pretty happy with how he came out so will be doing the rest of the boys the same way before tackling the civilians.

Bolt Action: Dad's Army!

Over the next week or so I will be painting up the Dad's Army set from Warlord Games for my wife's Dad for his birthday haha.

I hope to be able to produce reasonably faithful recreations of how the characters looked in the TV show, Warlord supply a rules pack that has full colour photos of them, along with full rules to integrate the characters into your British Army for their Bolt Action game!
More to follow soon :-D

Blood Bowl: Avengers Assemble... Completed

These last four positional players mark the completion of this project, which shall be delivered to the client on Wednesday:

Hawkeye & Black Widow
Quicksilver & Scarlett Witch
This has certainly been an interesting project, hampered slightly by the disco early 90's gw figures... with a more modern team I think I could have achieved much better results hohum.

Blood Bowl: Avengers Assemble pt3

Next up are the 4 Blitzers, the heart of the team:

Captain America
Iron Man
Onwards to the catchers and throwers now yeah!
