Firestorm Armada Test

So, funny story. Over half term we were clearing out a lot of the wargames stuff we never use with a view to putting much of it on ebay. We dug out the wifes Firestorm Armada. At which point she made the saddest face known to humankind, and said "I really liked these space ships, but you would not play with mee". So, my efforts to tidy up my excess games ended up with me...buying a Dindrenzi fleet.

Welcome back sports fans.

Grak and Crumbleberry

Blood bowl time again. I've painted up a few star players. Not that star players are terribly useful to me at the moment being one game into a blood bowl league. But maybe if we do a second season and maybe if I keep losing every game, then eventually the differential will get large enough to hire them. Nevertheless, the completionist in me tells me to collect all the star players I could use with my humans.

Inquisitor Grayfax and Friends

Inquisitor Grayfax
Finally got around to uploading a picture of Inquisitor Grayfax. Possibly one of the nicest paint jobs I have ever managed to do.

St Celestine

Group Shot

So I was indeed planning on painting my Horus Heresy stuff, and then Blood Bowl came out and now, plastic Sororitas. so obviously, I had to drop everything to paint those. I think I did darn well. Apologies for the green background, but it was probably the best contrast of the options available.

Canoness Veridyan

I have always been a big fan of the Sisters of Battle, and the John Blanche illustration that this model is based on in particular. So I simply knew I had to get hold of one. I talked about rules in my last post so this post is going to be all about the model.

Codex Imperial Agents: A Review

So, this isn't the sort of thing I usually post up but, given that Codex: Imperial Agents came out today with a new army list for the Sisters of Battle, among other things. I thought I would give some thoughts.

Blood Bowl!

As you are probably aware a new version of that most venerable of games, Blood Bowl, came out recently. So I thought I should show you my painted Blood Bowl figures. Starting with my halfling team.

Emperor's Children: Kakophoni and friends

So I have decided for blogging my third legion, I'm going to be painting things in sort of logical battlefield squads. So, today I have 10 Kakophoni, a Rhino and an Apothecary. Usually of course the Kakophoni will only be nine strong so they can fit in the rhino with friend Apothecary.

Emperor's Children: Tactical Squad

20 Mighty Tactical Marines

So, having painted all the Malifaux I was all set to order some more Malifaux, when my wife 'suggested' I might want to paint some of the other models I own. So I've decided to try and get my 30k Emperor's children painted up; if possible by the HH Weekender in February.

Adepta Sororitas Kill Team

So I'm playing in a Kill Team Tournament at the 40k Open Day in Nottingham this weekend. I had not played 40k in a good long while because I have been sucked into the Malifaux, but I got the chance to try the six possible scenarios one time each with Helen. Mostly I lost, but then Sisters are quite comparatively under powered at the moment.

I thought I'd share some pictures and the list I am taking. I painted these girls a long long while ago, and it shows in places. However, I firmly be leave that repainting miniatures is where madness lies.
