Scythe board game.

Last night at the Creative Biscuit Tim pulled out his new toy . . . . Scythe.


What seemed really daunting at first turned out to be an absolute cracking game!

It was so good we all agreed to play it again straight away despite it being close to 11pm by the time we finished the first game.


We flew through the second game and the sixth star was layed on the board just after 12.30am!

I have read a few reviews this morning and I feel it is well deserving of all the awards and nominations it has received.

What a cracking way to finish off a great year of gaming.

Just wanted to once again wish everyone a happy and productive new year!

Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire. Sepulchral Guard finished and more random chips from the cupboard of doom.


Finally finished up the Sepulchral guard. If I do say so myself they look pretty good.

First up the warden.


Once again I used blue as the unifying colour but he got the purple cape to show his leadership status.


petitioner one


petitioner two


petitioner three


The Harvester


The Prince of Dust


The Champion


That's all the Shadespire now finished up (until the release of the upcoming Skaven)!

Second up I have finished up all the Wild West civilians of 'Lago' for Legends of the Old west.


First up 'The fiddler'.


The Station master


The prospecter.


So that's another complete set of miniatures ticked off the list.

Being 'Deadcember' and also being on a bit of a roll I finished up a load of 'Risen' for Warmachine.


Considering their Reaper Bones they look OK.


I also finished up building and painting a burnt out barn for 'Legends of the old West'.



Being all wood I tried different effects for the wood grain.


Christmas day I managed to get some time to myself to build 4Grounds 'Rogan's bar'.


Another great kit from 4Ground.

Unfortunately I did make a real pig's ear of the windows.


Once again it has a detailed interior.


I also did alright on the present front!


Not sure if I will get another chance to post this year and have no intention of making a 'review of the year'

This has been an amazing year of gaming with nearly 300 miniatures sold or painted this year!

Of the 147 miniatures I bought this year only ten or twelve remain in the unpainted pile!

It was also a big year of moving miniatures on via eBay and I have finally broke the back of my lead mountain.

Highlights this year include Riotville LIVE, BOYL 2017, finishing the 15 month Mordheim campaign with my brother and of course the Epic 'Blood in the Badlands' campaign.

I just wanted to wish everyone a happy and productive new year.

For the last time lets do the numbers

Miniatures painted / sold this year = 295

Miniatures bought 147
257 miniatures to go

Mortal Engines 2018

So this dropped last night . . . . .



Really enjoyed reading the books (including all the spin offs) and hope this is both in keeping with the books as well as being financially viable as I would love to see a series of these films.

Hopefully it will not end up like the John Carter movie.


Could do without another series of books I loved being dragged through the mud by Hollywood.

SAGA. Sacred ground, Warmachine: Company of Iron and Shadespire!


This Friday saw Macca and I continue our SAGA campaign.

This battle would see us play the 'Sacred ground' scenario, fielding 6 point armies.

Warhammer Fantasy. 'Fell blade' Charlie Vs Capt. Guthook!!



Last Sunday Phil and I finally managed to squash our beef.


We decided to use the forces we would have fielded during the final battle.


This would mean that I would have a points advantage but as Phil texted me "Blood in the Badlands is never fair"!


I just wondered if it would be enough to tip the balance in my favour?

Random chips from the cupboard of doom!

It's been a quiet week on the hobby front.

Last week as I was about to take the kids to Thaiboxing the Wife piped up with "Oh WE just need to  . . . . . . " and that was the end of my weekend (she is talking to me right now as I'm trying to blog this 😈).

Anyway through the week I did manage to finish off some bits.


First up is an Ogre Irongut musician.

Warhammer Fantasy. Ogres Vs Chaos 2500 point throwdown!



Last Sunday saw Lee and I cross swords over a game of WHF 8th edition.


Lee had a 2500 point chaos list written up so that's what we threw down with.


Battle report after the break . . . . .

By da skin of me teef. George Orkwell, my Orctober entry!



I was going to give Orctober a miss this year but then the clocks went back and I decided to put the extra hour to good use.

'Storm of Sigmar' box set all painted up

This time it is the 'Storm of Sigmar' box set I bought a couple of weeks ago.


First up the three Liberators

Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire, Khornite Warband, Garrek's Reavers


Had these finished since Sunday but have been waiting ages for a decent stint of sunlight to take some pictures.

Unfortunately it has remained cloudy and grey in London so I have bitten the bullet and tried to take some photos today.

Here they are after the break. . .

SAGA. The battle of the ford!


This Thursday saw Macca and I continue our SAGA campaign.

With Macca winning the first game (scenario one), I needed to force the crossing of a river.

5 Reasons the Age of Sigmar, 'Storm of Sigmar' boxset is great!


It's no secret that I am super hyped about 'Shadespire' being released on the 21st of October.

With this is mind I dropped into a GW store Saturday to place and pay for my pre-order.

While there two things happened; one I stopped worrying about the future of our hobby as the place was RAMMED with kids AND two I spotted this on the shelf. . . .

Blood in the Badlands; secret sparring session.


Not being quite ready to walk away from the Badlands yet I have decided to blog the secret sparring session Lee and I had before the final storming of the Fastness.

Blood in the Badlands. Week 16. The storming of the flying fastness!


Standing upon the Arcane Fulcrum, the Butcher Bloodsky had an unprecedented view of the battle field below him.

Four great armies were arrayed beneath him.

The Fey Folk in their glittering armour stood upon the walls of the occupied flying fastness.

Across the field a mass of green allies(?) bellowed into the morning mist, their challenge resounding across the vista.

To his left the sodden Skaven shivered in the morning chill; or was that fear from having to run the gauntlet to gain the flying fastness?

Directly below him, the sweating mass of his Guthook tribe had mustered, their greedy eyes scanning the feast of flesh before them.

The Butcher Bloodsky looked up and scanned the sky above him. He studied the alignment of the slowly dwindling stars, met the eye of Captain Guthook and nodded his head in affirmation.

The stars were aligned, the portents from the heavens were good, the final battle could begin!!

Warhammer Underworlds, Shadespire!

Falling back into old habits! Warmachine



Sunday just gone was supposed to be the conclusion of the epic 'Blood in the Badlands' campaign we have been playing through. . . . . .


Then Phil had some family obligations and Lano woke up Sunday morning to find a naked dude in his Girlfriend's bathtub covered in (his own) puke and poo!!


For the reasons above we decided to postpone the final game (DRATS!!!!!. . . . Lano has no idea how much it cost me to bribe that fella to crap himself in the tub!!!!!).


It turned out Lee and I ended up having a game of Warmachine.


After the cut are some action shots. . . . . . . .

By SIGMAR it flies!!!!!! Fozzriks flying fastness.



With the conclusion of the Blood in the Badlands campaign happening this Sunday I figured we needed something worth fighting over!


So here we are, Fozzriks flying fastness.

SAGA . . . . . .The eh . . . . saga!


With the resurgence of Warmahordes among the members of the Armoury gaming club Macca had the great idea of him and I playing through a SAGA campaign where we just play each of the scenarios in turn.

Round 1 'Kill the Warlord'!

Friday, 22 September 2017

Another cracking night at the Creative Biscuit, South Woodford . . . . . . .

Blood in the Bad lands. Week 15. What's so civil about war anyway?


This Sunday with none of Lee's or my armies directly contesting any of the Blood in the Badlands tiles we decided to have an Empire show down in preperation for the ''reconquest of Solland' campaign.

1500 points of Empire it is then . . . .
