Silly Season 3!

Inbetween Season in our local League we have a mini Season dedicated to mainly Stunty teams. This season Underworld and Vampires are welcome too.

My Ogre team, The Suffering Turnogres are participating, and got paired up against two teams theyve already faced earlier, good fun.

First coach Ozt, playing with the halfling team Nemnill Peacemongers. He´s a really good player and has a good record. He is in the top ranking in the World with his Norse team and last year he won the Chaos Cup. He´ll be the head organizer for the EuroBowl´16 which will be held at a castle in Örebro in October. Even though the Turnogres had the chance for revenge against the Cheesemongers their fondue proved insurmountable.
Blocks were thrown and dodges missed but the only one really making notable moves were star player Puggy.
Apart from the excessive fouling that is.

In turn 16 Ozt and his Cheesemongers walked in and made the only and thus match winning score.

The Turnogres seemed somewhat content still, rumour has it that the next game there will be someone substituting the late Gashonock.

The next game was against Il_Maestro, also playing halflings.
In his first round he foulkilled one of my ogres, I used the Apo for re-roll but it didnt help. He also killed a snotling. In second round he´d killed the second ogre, also by fouling. A third ogre, Queen Chundalobria, was KO´d together with a snot.
So starting my third round with three ogres and and four snotlings against two treemen and nine halflings. Kind of a rough start one might say. After that Nuffle seemed to tip the scale, I couldnt really fail anything while Il_Maestro failed Dodges and didnt manage to break snotling armour.

In turn 16 I managed to position Powpow Fulsnakk in the end zone and reach him with a long pass from Another a snot. 2-1 in TD for me, but after nine matches the Casualty score is 36-35 but the fatality is 4-7 where three of them are ogres. For my tenth game the roster is quite decmiated with only Three ogres and seven snotlings. With 80K in bank the pressure is on for me to earn Another 60 against Björn & Magos goblin team Dont feed the Troll in order to at least get a fourth ogre.
It seems to be a long way back.

A ghost, a librarian, a mouse, a fairy-gnome and our heroine!

So my fiances niece is showing interest in boardgames, both playing but also developing and the mechanics behind the game.

Some time ago we made board and pieces from scratch.

It was some sort of dungeoncrawling where we, the protagonists, had to complete the trail without encountering the ghost or the giant turd. (Yeah she´s six so those types of biological funtions are quite interesting it seems.)

Thought I could provide some markers, dice, player and monsters in order to inspire her to make new exciting gameboards and games. The narrative is the key I think, that she´ll be able to tell a story through the game.

So here´s the librarian and the ghost, the libarian could be the protagonist in games I suppose but basically my idea was that she´ll be able to provide support for the hero. Like a lifeline or source of information like the Giles character in Buffy. The miniature is from Stonehaven, some sort of elf I think. The ghost is made out of greenstuff, the base is some GW empire militia I believe. The ghost is rather a person dressed up as a ghost. The niece is only 6 so “battle” will rather be the bad guys trying to scare the players and make them not complete their journey.

And here are the rest of the players/markers:

From left to right: A mouse from Mice and Mystics set by Plaid Hat Games, hidden behind is a coackroach also from M&M, next is the heroine a gnome from the Stonehaven kickstarter together with a GW Lizard from their swarm blister, then we have a pixie gnome (yeah that´s right) also from Stonehaven. In the back is a big spider from Mice and Mystics and finally in front the objective marker a treasure chest from Stonehaven.

Hopefully this will result in a lot of scenarios and adventures for the niece.

Space Hulk expansion

Recently aquired Deathwing.
Really nice set with tiles, props and minis for my latest endeavours into futuristic nerdness. These will be great for sci-fi “dungeon crawling”.
Got some more nids and marines, a nice addition to the ones in the starter set. Also some new missions and mechanics for randomizing games.
The bulkhead things seems useful.

This will be quite awesome I imagine.

I also learnt recently that GW is bringing back specialist games in som form, they are starting up a specialist brand design team within the Forge World chapter. If you think this is the job for you, please apply.

Both Bloodbowl and Necromunda was specially mentioned earlier, I´m quite curious to see what will happen. It will probably take som time Before anything hit the shelves so to speak. Even so, yay for us and for the games that maybe is being brought back from their cryostasis!

Fishyman and Friends

Bloodbowl was the game that brought me back to the miniature painting and sometimes even playing hobby after a couple of years hiatus.

In short it’s a boardgame of football, but with elves, dwarves, orcs and wizards. A bit like chess, a lot not like it. A fantastic game.

Your team consists of usually 11-16 players so it’s not necessary to buy and paint hundreds of miniatures. Unless you want all types of teams that is.

These three players will be beastmen in my new Chaos team. In order to make them more diversed from the generic goatman look I’ve applied greenstuff. Inspiration comes from a tzeentch warband in a White Dwarf magazine (#128 I believe), the Wheel of Time series, early GW catalogue and the Oldhammer community.

Pics are not that great, will do better when project is finished. Promise.
