Giveaway, discount and converting.

I have been really busy with the real world. But still managed a bit of hobby time. Working a bit on my Nightstalker units, using greenstuff and mantic games zombies.



A lot more neeed for the base but you get the idea. To represent the unit of SCARECROWS, shambling along. Easy to make too.

Now to the discount. HORIZONCREATION3D  makes 3d printet terrain and some good prices. Barrels, fountains, graveyard bits and so forth. Usable in Frostgrave or indeed in postapocalyptic gaming. Go and check them out, and if you use the code zombie10 then you will even get a 10% discount. 

The fountain you see here is from Horizon creation, and it could be yours! Yes, giveaway time! All you have to do is comment here on this blogpost. I will draw a winner on July the 3rd. It is that easy...Really. Now go and order some stuff from him, he is actually a really cool guy.

B-day and stuff

I have reached the answer to everything. That is correct...42 as of today the 14th of June 2016. Level up time!And it has been a good day so far, pancakes and gifts. Amongst those were a ticket to a concert with SEPULTURA and KREATOR  ! THANK YOU! She might not share my taste in music but she lets me have it. And supports me being a nerd. I love her for that too.

And this! All drawings she made herself. Love it! Love her! We have been together for 11 years now. Well...Last week I think it was, I remembered the day so brought her gifts!

Going out to dinner tonight. We are taking a big steak ! Yum! Or rather OM NOM NOM! (No brains on my platter tonight though)

Finally found and ordered some models to use in my NIGHTSTALKER army. A bit of converting, rebasing and my simple colourscheme for them. This picture is a little teaser of what to come. 

There will be much more to come!

Nightstalkers

Kings of war army. Again...A new one...Yeah I know... But being an old horror fan this army really atracted me. An army...Made of your worst nightmares coming to life. What is not to like? I have been working on 2 of the units so far.




Needlefangs. Plastic halloween spiders with skulls. Swarming towards you with hunger for your very soul. Om nom nom..


The second unit is Butchers. Shambling...But when they get to you they will tear you apart ! Miniatures are actually from the Plague faction of Deadzone. 

And I have plans for some other units. Currently trying to find cheap Horroclix freakshow clowns. Because a nightmare army need at least one unit to trigger Coulrophobia.

Do any of you...By chance...Hate Broccoli?
Just you wait and see what I have in store for you then... And some slugs....

Busy bee not zom bee

Nothing to do with zombies, wargaming, painting or post apocalyptic stuff.... And yet it does ! I have a great admiration for Billy Connelly and thought this quote was fitting from him and quite amusing.

So what have I been up to? 
I would like to say that I had finished a painting project, but I would lie.
I would like to say that I had finished my industrial terrain, but I would lie.
I would like to say that I had not started more projects, but you would know better by now.
I would like to say that I had gotten a bit more organised, you would just shake your head.
I would like to say that I had a firm grip on my SMS, but you would just laugh at this point.
(SMS, Shiny Model Syndrome)



The ROUTE 666 THE DEVILS RUN kickstarter has arrived. Mad Max style road warfare in 10mm scale. Love the look of the models ! Really easy to clean up and has a lot of detail. Plus I have some matchbox style cars and what not, together with bikes and bits from Ramshackle Games, ready to make it A LOVELY DAY!




And this little thing happened.....Sigh....For now just a teaser...More info will come on this...Yet another project!

The triumph of Smudge.

It is not often that I am at a loss for words.... I was when I unpacked this present from a gentleman by the name of Steven. Some may know him better as INSO. Check his blog here. INSOS WORLD 

He made it as part of GIVE IT FORWARD.  And I was one of those people. The model was a test to see iif they could 3d print it. All models are from HASSLEFREE MINIATURES. Great company with superb customer service. Have loads of their great models. Go check them out and get hold of your SMUDGE models. The pug models are inspired by their late dog named Smudge. 

I have 2 pugs myself so when I "signed up" for the program, Steven knew exactly what to make. And I must say that it is AWESOME! Again..Thank you!!!

 Actually looks like me...Potbelly and beard. Only needs a bit of grey mixed in my hair then it was spot on hehe....

 Signature of the artist. Great little touch. It has been based on a CD. From STAR WARS hehe..

I plan on making some bases to slot into where the 3 miniatures are standing. That way I can use it in games. Bloody brilliant mate!!!

Lucky find, good tip and a game.

So I took my Kings of war army (Very much a work in progress) out for a game in the club. I had no intention of taking pictures for the blog, but I took some and thought that I might as well use them. Against Morten W. and his RATKIN.  A smashing victory for The Basilean army.

 As mentioned...Really a work in progress. But they looked like what they should represent. I need to remember I am a good guy in this army, and use HEAL spell.
 Angels of the match. They smashed through everything! 4 units died due to the wrath of my angels. 1 weapon team, doomwheel. lightning cannon and a big unit of rats.
 This regiment of my paladins...Got eaten as the ratogres munched them in one turn! AUCH! And my troop of cavalry was wavered for 2 turns and then got smashed from their saddles by the ratogres.

Though I won the game there is still something for me to think about. Had a warmachine which managed to inflict ONE wound. Knights were utter wimps. And I pretty much wasted my paladins. Could I use the angels in another tactic then swoop down the side and working throgh that way? I might still need another game to figure out if this works.

 The good tip from me. Counters for WAVERING and DISORDERED. Made on left over MDF bases. Yellow on one side and red on the other. Easy to do, cheap and it will help in the game. There you go.

 See this? It is a roll of cork. Really usefull for making bases, especially multibases. I think it is used for putting under linoleum flooring. To make it a softer to walk on. Best part of this find...It was free! Should keep me supplied for some time....

Do it yourself "Wound counter base"

Really easy build here. In Kings of war you need to keep track of the damage the units take, and mostly it is done with dice. I have seen some companies doing these but thought I had the materials needed to doing them myself.

Coffee stirrers yet again. The mdf base is left over bases I had. You could use a bit of plasticcard or even cardboard.

Clipping the stirrers to size and gluing them on. (Not your damn finger to the base...AGAIN!) The ones at the end has been halved. Carefull when using the cutters too, one bit flew of and landed in a cup of coffee. I tried explaining to her that they were coffee stirrers after all...

That easy....Cheap and fast. With a bit of sand, undercoat black, dark brown and a drybrush of a lighter brown and you are done.
