Seasonal Scallywags pt I

Yeah, so as I´ve mentioned before, the name of my gang in our renewed endeavours into the wonderful world of Necromunda was Seasonal Scallywags.

It didnt take me long to realise that they needed a bit of touch-up, paintwise. Or rather a lot of touch. A re-do if you like. So i sent them aceton swimming.

To the left they are drying up after a refreshing bath. Note that this treatment is not at all recommended for plastic minis, they evaporate in aceton. I´m not sure what to use if you´re trying to paintstrip them, just don´t use aceton , ok?

In the middle is the backbone of what is to be th new model for my leader, an ork skorcha gunner body with a headswap from a space wolf sergeant. Plan is to try out magnetise arms for more choices when it comes to weapons. Right now he´s wielding a chainsword and a bolt pistol but I´m thinking of getting a flamer for him. We´ll see what happens.

I´ve also realised that in order for my scallywags to be an unruly bunch I probably need to make the team more diverse. One idea is to have the Orlock ganger models waiting to step up whenever the juves have gained sufficient experience. That way I can use other minitures for the gangers I already have. I´ve already laid my eyes on some prospects in the “street violence” range of the amazing wargames foundry.

Having a bunch of reading up to do, next post might be of some painting. Or artwork. Or reading material. Or something else.

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.
