Dungeon Saga II - Seeing Triple

Stylus is right, these are good models to paint! After getting the first batch of furniture out of the way (yeah, there's more, no, I'm not looking forward to it), I was pretty eager to get the core set down.

Dungeon Saga Evil Dead - Ghosties and Ghoulies (and Zombies)

Now the heroes are painted for this dungeon bash, it's time to give them something to bash!

Dungeon Saga: Dwarf King's Quest painted evil dead.
The Fellowship of the Ring has seen better days.

Rise up, deadies!

Dungeon Saga Heroes - Your Quest Begins Here!

"Enter, stranger...."

Dungeon Saga: Dwarf Kings Quest painted hero: Rordin.
In a wild departure from fantasy dwarf designs, this one is a grumpy-looking doorstop.

Despite having a SkypeQuest lined up with Kraken in the near future, I hadn't intended to paint any of my Dungeon Quest models. But I started to tinker with a few and realised - these things are fantastic to paint!

Frostgrave II - A Frosty Grave

I've Got Frostbite!
It's All Skype Fight Night!

Back to the snowy city of Felstad for a second round of wizardly duelling! I, Kraken,

and I, Stylus,

will be battling our warbands as we squabble over the riches within a newly-thawed Mausoleum. Can its prizes be wrenched from the knucklebones of those guarding it?


We'll be taking our warbands from last time out again. My Necromancer, 'Gold' Dulgur, won the first round. Along with new henchmen and Stylus's injuries from last time, I have a distinct numerical advantage, as well as a big, tough Barbarian to deploy!

Goldie is now a she, since I finished the paintjob on the model that played apprentice last time. Her new apprentice is Mr Bones on the extreme left, and after injuries from last time, I was packing two thugs, two thieves, a crossbowman, an archer, a big dog and an even bigger Barbarian. 

Slothslayer's Proxies - two archers, three goblin thugs, an apprentice and a treasure hunter. The Man-at-Arms was actually injured, but managed to make the team photo anyway.

Dungeon Saga - Solo Rules Review

Playing by myself? Yeah, I'm that sad.

Stikka Album

... or are Stikkas meant to be archers? Well, for the purpose of a good pun, let's assume goblin spears are the ones they call 'Stikkas'

Night Goblin spear unit from Warhammer Fantasy Battle
You find a good pun, you Stikk to it.

This is the second of my Night Goblin originals. They served me well for many 6th Ed battles, but as with the archers, the time has come to repaint them.

Aim for the Black

Not for the Red

Yeah, it's Crypt Angels time!

Tonight, on a very special post...

Well, this all seems like splendid news (and remarkable that the too-good-to-be-true rumour preceding it actually turned out true),

Perhaps a new Necromunda game will finally goad me into painting my Escher gang. Mind you, I wouldn't pass up a Blood Bowl game either. Or maybe Epic.

Oh damn, GW, just shut up and take my money.

It Was A Rock... Lobba!

... and if that's got you humming the B-52s, then get yourself off and have a quick boogie. It's fine, I'll wait.

EXT: Fallen Statue

The concrete gloop from the burned-out shack wasn't the only leftovers from the lifecasting session recently. We also had some spare parts.

It's A Long Way From Gorkamorka

Having painted up a Wyvern rider for our recent battle report, I figured I needed a Warboss on foot model (in the *unlikely* chance that the wyvern would get shot out from underneath him).

Black Orc Big Boss, Gorkamorka Nob conversion.
I mean, what are the odds of that happening?

EXT: Ruined Hut

 More ruins for my snowy bog theme. This time, the remains of a shack!

That burned down, fell over and then sank into the swamp.

The Bat Winged Loony Lobber

a.k.a The Doom Diver. I've already made a customised version, but I can't believe it's taken me this long to sort out a proper one: the model, the rules and the fluff are equally awesome.

Painting update on Goblin Doom Diver for Orcs & Goblins, Warhammer Fantasy Battle.
From the Wile E. Coyote school of artillery.

"...This technique was developed to provide greenskin tribes with a form of aerial reconnaissance. Early aeronauts were given bits of slate and chalk on which to sketch enemy troop dispositions. As few Goblins survived the rather sudden landing, this was felt to be the only way of recovering the information they had gleaned. Unfortunately the idea wasn't a great success as most slates were found to bear a hasily scrawled message along the lines of 'Yahooooo!' of Wheeeee!'"

WoffBoot: The Movie!

Having penned over 80 battle reports, we thought we'd have a try at making a video report. But, of course, we couldn't just make any old video...

So here we have a 2500 pt battle between Empire and Orcs & Goblins, as narrated by Brother 'Peachy' Toliver Carnehan and Brother Daniel 'Danny' Dravot, former Gunnery Sergeants in the Queen’s own Royal Loyal Light Infantry.

It was a fun battle - the losses were appalling (and so were the accents!)

Oddgit and Upchuck

So we SkypeBooted last week (battle report impending) and lending Kraken my greenskin army meant I was forced to hasten, not just the wyvern warboss, but also a couple of other extra models. Starting with two night goblin shaman:

Forge World Night Goblin Shaman
In the end, he only fielded one of them: a cruel trick to make me paint faster.

Dungeon Saga - Miniatures Review

 Okay, I'll keep this brief.
Review of Dungeon Saga Mantic
