Back from the dead

Crazy busy with things. Yesterday we had a stagparty for a fantastic mate of mine. There was whiskey...Heavy metal...Good food and excellent company. Though I myself must admit I am not the partygoer I used to be. Getting my corpse out of bed today took the works of a necromancer!

And now that I am talking about raising the dead.... My first fantasy army was the undead. Though it has been put away, some has been sold, it has never reeeeally gone away. And you already know of my love for zombies. Now then, with the new Kings of war ruleset from Mantic coming out I thought it was time to have a dig around and raise an army again. Much is from Mantic games itself as lots of my GW was sold.

 Several vampires, mounted wights and a zombiedragon will soon be raised from their slumber. Oh and some conversion to a corpsecart in order for me to incorporate it into a zombie regiment. Now I look at this...I seem to have forgotten to put the zombies up. 

The shrine you see will most likely end up with some Revenants. And where in the name of Arkhan the black did I do of my ghouls?? Well parts of my army are obviously still hidden or buried somewhere....

I am also getting some gangs ready to take with me to Berlin. Gangs from ACROSS THE DEAD EARTH .

I will be facing a resident dane by the name of Christian Birk, a known stalker of mine. We will be going to visit him and his lovely girl Maj. And the gauntlet has been thrown ! Bragging rights! And mead! I hope to make a bit of a battle report of it and put up here.

Just a small update on what I am up to. Take care out there in the real world. And watch this space for a product review soon!

Henchman/evil overlord.

I am a LOOTER. Lootcrate sends me geekystuff once a month. One of those parcels was with the theme of COVERT. By following a link on the box itself you were put through some questions and leads from what you got in the box. I made it and recieved this.

 Am I evil? To some, oh yes! But I tend to make up for it by being a good guy too. But as an evil mastermind I needed some minions to boss around...

 And I am in the process of painting them at the moment. There are more in the pipeline for this set, one with a rocket launcher!!! Oh I need more!!!

I will not jump on the bandwagon and slander Games Workshop for what they have chosen to do with the fantasy line. I have played loads of fantasy games mainly with undead forces but also Empire and Bretonia. I have however not played a single game in the last 2 editions of the rules. So that really means I have no right in being mad by what they do. And I am open for trying the new rules just for a bit of fun. And then most likely going back to playing WARLORD by REAPER MINIATURES or KINGS OF WAR by MANTIC GAMES. 

If gamers think it is over with Fantasy, please think a minute or two and get some common sense. Do not go of burning your miniatures. (You daft twat). Just stick to playing the edition you like. Or use them in other types of games. Or sell them so you can back this fantastic game:

Really.... This is a fun game to play. Go check them out at kickstarter link
Stags and warbears. What is not to like? Sure...You do not have other races like orcs and undead, but really...You get plenty of that from Kings of war. This is with an easy set of rules and as mentioned before but never enough...It is fun!

I got hold of the free miniatures with the current white dwarf. And did this:

 Now I can have true scale chaos marines. Works really nice. Not sure if I want to make more than just a kill team though. 

Times have been a bit stressed for me, thus the lack of updates. Sorry about that. I was best man for my best friend and it took a lot to get that right. Making sure their day was great. 

 A lovely day/evening/night. Really fantastic. I wish them both all the best for the future!!

The warehouse district. Part 1

Impudent Mortal ran a Kickstarter to get his new line WAREHOUSE DISTRICT up and going. Well as you have seen in a previous post I pledged to get a full table. Now all I needed was to build it, paint it and game with it. 

Falcon warehousing and storage. A building which is quite big was the first I started on. As I organized the bits I was a bit overwhelmed. This is just part of what you get. Acrylic windows in the top is a cool addition to this piece of terrain.

Instructions can be found on Impudent Mortal webpage. And they were quite easy to follow. Though at one time I had a piece where I had no freaking idea where to put it. I will explain later...

Next time....I will use our dinner table. Needed a bit more space. It fits really wel together and there is not much cutting to do. And....NO! I did not glue myself to the building!

TADAAAAAAAAAA! Miniatures for scale from Across the dead earth. Wait ...hold on....Is that a break in? 

I have later stuck a little piece of mdf in to look like it is holding it up.
Details are really great. Now I will be using it both in Batmangames and post apoc games. So there will be a bit of weathering and neglect but not overly overgrown. This is also due to the fact that I can store it like the next picture.

I have started painting it but it will be a longer process. There are also the windows missing and the railings. I want to paint it before these are attached. And by the way...See that piece beside the miniature? That was the one that got me puzzled...

That little piece that got me puzzled...I had to write to Walt who is the mastermind behind Impudent Mortal. And after he pulled my leg he revealed its secret to me. Now I feel a bit stupid. What an absolutely great idea!!! Look for yourself!

There will be loads more to come from this project. The birth of a new citytable. So stay ready as I progress and build more from this! (And paint it)

Birthday, terrain and good deals!

14th of June was my birthday and I got bacon and presents. One of the presents I knew since I pledged for it myself on Kickstarter. Impudent Mortal . Terrain, terrain and a bit more terrain. Lone gave me a good chunk of this! And it finally arrived!

Now to find time to glue it together and get it painted. You can bet there will be updates ! I have started small by assembling some crates, a nice feature is that there is stensils for use on the them. Fragile, radioactive and such. I took the whole warehouse district (not all the add ons) so it is actually a full table once I get it assembled. And it is looking reeeaaally cool. Here is the link to the kickstarter.

This week have seen me making some good deals in the hobby. And actually helping 2 mates from my gaming club to get some miniatures for a great price. And loads of stuff I need to sell on. Grey Knihgts in power armour and terminator armour. Limited edition bounty hunter for Necromunda. Limited Inquisitor (Gideon Lorr) for WH 40k. Spyrer gang for Necromunda. Possesed warband for Mordheim, 5 Seraphim, Eldar avatar......

Now I need to make some more terrain. And get stuff ready for the club tomorrow (Tuesday). They call for ZOMBIECIDE, so let`s go hunting!!

A bit of everything...

Got a game in BATMAN MINIATURE GAME with 2 mates. I played Joker`s crew, Kenn was League of shadows and Steffen brought Batman and the law. Only my second game but it was fun! I lost but learned a lot. Here some pics from the game.

Click on the picture to view it in bigger. 200 points each crew. Will have another go tomorrow night.

Some of the terrain is from IMPUDENT MORTAL. I was in their latest kickstarter and recieved a letter today from customs...DAMMIT! Well on the bright side...I will soon have my own city!

This is the painting pallette I usually use..... Hehe no it is not. It is actually my girlfriends. Creative as well. Here is a work she is doing right now.

More clowns, more bases and more cufflinks!

More work on my Joker crew. Mr. Candycane, Ms. Salem and introducing Harley Quinn. Really fun to paint these and made them pretty fast actually. Tomorrow (Tuesday) I will have a small battle with them. Well..At 200 points I can not field them all. But lets see how that goes....

I needed some special bases for my Confrontation miniatures but had no interrest in buying new ones. So I got the greenstuff out and found a base I had lying around to use. This is not a copy of that base as mine will be the other way around. A bit of greenstuff on the base, flattened it, pressed it against the base and hey presto. Let it dry a bit and cut excess greenstuff of.

Now to let them dry fully and pin the models to them. All my base are belong to me!

Since me and Lone has been a pair for 10 years now I gave her a pair of earrings, a new canvas and a haircut. And she got me these badass cufflinks! Love them!

Yeah I love me some cufflinks, have about 40 different ones now. Looking forward to the next 10 years together!

Joe Carr and friends

Why so serious ? This has nothing to do with zombies this time. This is Batman the miniature game. Finally I have finished some of the models for my Joker crew. And got hold of a cool ambulance at a carboot sale.

The clown in the front is my small tribute to a character from a Rob Zombie movie. More to come on that subject. These are really great sculpts! And quite fun to paint. Next up in is these two clowns. The girl is actually not a clown but will be painted as a tribute to THE LORDS OF SALEM. Yet another Rob Zombie movie. The clown on the right started out with a bat. A mate of mine wanted him to have an axe instead but dropped the idea. I then gave him what will become a big candycane!

I have 4 other clowns waiting, a tiatnclown and Harley Quinn in my box. Slow and steady progress.

Oh! And I watched Mad Max FURY ROAD yesterday! My holy batshit is was action packed! Loved it! And need to see it again to get it all! Great movie with high octan! Recommended highly from me. Now to get back to painting...
