BOYL 2019 - Strontium Dog: The Shicklgruber Grab

Hi All,

Another game from BOYL. This one was put on by Michael (Aiteal) and he really put a lot of love into his table. A fun and wacky scenario. Enjoy.

I didn't really do much in this game against Bulldog Lopez, Erasmus Papafakis, and Asslessman. I made the mistake of taking a pot shot at Asslessman before he killed me and ended up winning the game. Unfortunately I also didn't get a picture of Bulldog's figure, which he sculpted himself. It was really cool.

Anyway, I'm slowly painting up some stuff for a local game of RT, dreaming of Cyberpunk adventures and Warcry for next year. We'll see where this goes.

Thanks for looking.

BOYL 2019 - An Epic Clash

Hi All,

Here is a comic battle report of the Epic battle that Asslessman from Leadplague ran for us at BOYL 2019.

The Ork side consisted of myself and WhiskeyPriest, led by The Otto Von Bismark.

The Imperial side consisted of Rochie, Curis and Pat.

The Traitors were Mr. Saturday, Thansants and Bulldog Lopez.

Strap in for the ride of your life.

Sorry for the abrupt ending, pictures during a game can be hit and miss. I missed the obscene number of Space Marines, Rhinos and Land Raiders my Gargant destroyed and Bulldog Lopez blowing the weapons off my right side right at the end. I ended up running away with the game with something stupid like 39 victory points. I owe it all to The Otto Von Bismark who had a vast knowledge of the rules and capabilities of the Gargants.

I think we all have the bug to paint up more Epic forces now.

Welcome to Laurent AP, thanks for following the blog.

Happy hobbying to everyone, thanks for looking.

A little deeper into my RoC Warband - "Do I make you Khorne-y?"

Hi All,

Just thought I'd give you a breakdown of my final RoC warband.

I used this template that was originally made by Bulldog Lopez and added the weapon stats to it. As you can see my fonts are a little all over the place. Some day I'll clean that up. I think I also mislabeled the Displacement field a Distort field.

These guys ended up being my best unit. Although the plastic arms and weapons on some were a pain to put on the metal bodies, they ended up being a fun unit. That Power Axe was the best.

These guys were really hard for me to commit to the conversion. I'm really happy with how they turned out, but they were crap on the battlefield.

I didn't end up getting to use this guy. I also didn't paint him, he came that way from Ebay. The only thing I did was texture and paint the base, repair the silencer thing and slap some matte varnish on him. 

Anyway, there you have it. I hope you get a chance to make your own band. It's a little silly, but awfully fun.

BOYL 2019 - Realm of Chaos mini Campaign

Hi All,

On the Friday a group of us met up at Warhammer World and played in a linked campaign using warbands we had rolled up from the Realm of Chaos books. We rotated opponents and played three scenarios.

Here is the campaign from my Champion's perspective.

So I got very lucky with objective placement in the first game. I barely outlasted my opponent in the second game, we apparently attacked each other with the marked unit. In the third game the bewitched/possessed sword really messed with me. I had won it after the first scenario and it essentially made my champion useless for the next two battles.

Anyway, loads of fun, fantastic models and bonkers shenanigans occurring.

I may do a break down of my warband next before moving on to the next battle report.

Thanks for looking.

BOYL 2019 - An Overview

Hi All,

Well, I made it to BOYL this year and overcame my hang ups about driving abroad and doubts about my ability to finish my figures, or my skill at the hobby.

I took tons of pictures, but I tried to distill it down to a few pages in this comic report. Enjoy.

I wish I had talked to more people, but I didn't know who everyone was and I wasn't sure how to talk to some of the luminaries of Warhammer. But that's on me, everyone at the event was very nice.

Anyway, as I said in the comic report, you should try to make it to this  event if you enjoy the old games and figures.

I'd also like to welcome Alan Luiz to the blog. Thanks for following.

OWAC2 - Army Pose

Hi All,

After submitting my Army pose post for The Old World Army Challenge, I realized how terrible it was. You can see the post here.

First I did a terrible panorama.

I realized after putting the post together that I had left out one skeleton archer because I had to glue the giant arrow back in his hand.

I had wanted to recreate the Kev Adams pose from Warhammer Armies, but i couldn't manage it in the space I was using. As you can see I was already annoyed because I had been "disturbing" my kids while they were trying to watch Futurama.

Iannick made a comment about my expression, so I fixed it.

Anyway, I neglected to put the army total in my wrap up.

20 Skeleton Warriors with Spears, Standard and Musician 264 points (whoops) /EDIT*
10 Grim Reapers 120 points
1 Skull Chucker + 3 man Crew 60 points
20 Zombies with Standard and Musician 88 points
10 Skeleton Archers 120 points
1 10th Lvl Liche Doombinder 150 points
5 Death Riders 105 points
1 Plague Cart 100 points

Bonus Army(?) Standard Bearer 24 points?

For a total of 1031 points and 72 or so painted figures.

I wish I had time to bask in that, but I don't. Thanks for looking

And before I forget, welcome to howie b.

OWAC2 Final Submission

Hi All,

I posted this to the OWAC a few days ago, but not all of you may be dialed into that blog. So here it is again if you did see it.

These photos probably needed editing, but I'm feeling a lot of time pressure now. So you get what you get.

Grim Reapers with the Reaper Anniversary Grim Reaper. The unit doesn't have shields in my list, but they look dumb with the shield nubbins so I'll add some later.

I am absolutely terrible at assembling multipart models. I had a terrible time with painting sub assemblies and then not having things fit right, fumble and drop the model, repaint, reglue, repeat.

For all that it looks good. Someone more competent may not have the same issues. I'm also not sold on the horse color, but it's done.

I did this guy as an extra. I tried some red ink on the armor but it went on a little thick so it looks more like just red paint than ink over metal. I may try the technique again.

Lastly, I took a second stab at Death, trying to channel Peter Bruegel the Elder. This one is for Iannick.

Bruegel's Triumph of Death is on display at The Prado in Madrid. I got a chance to see it in person this Summer.

Anyway, thanks for looking and happy painting.
