Youngest nephew loves pirates, so I made special one for his birthday. Good fun was had and he seems to have liked it.
Summertime means usually less painting and more gaming, this year is not an exception.
I’ve reopened my 40K boxes and even played with the new rules, kind of likes them.
Plan is also to finish the shadow war Armageddon team as well as start a new warband for AoS.
Picking up 40k again meant opportunity to actually paint up some scenery that’s been unpainted for over 20 years, here’s some wip:
Today a box of goodies from reaper miniatures arrived, since I backed their bones 3 kickstarter two years ago. The to-be-painted pile is growing fast, but that’s ok though.
Yeah, here are enough pieces for a starting roster.
Linemen (including team captain and the kickstarter exclusive kicker)
Painted/Bought in 2016: 13/0
More to follow, starting off the year really good.
Yeah, first up are two positionals for my dwarven team in BloodBowl.
The Trollslayers, “Fierce” Bossman and Dan E Gloveless, will be part of Dorf Chesthair City “The Pears”. Dan is so eager to get on the pitch so he isnt even properly dressed.
And here from the side:
The models are from Iron Golems kickstarter that finished last year and they are sculpted by the incredibly gifted Pedro Ramos. “Fierce” is supposedly the Grimm Ironjaw mini but I´m quite fond of him so I made him a permanent part of the team.
Some more reserves, bazooka and chainsaw in the piles.
Earlier WIP photos of the team. As you can see more are on the way.
And here´s the front of the box.
Painted in 2016: 2
Bought in 2016: 0
The painted/bought ratio is so far so good but we´ll see what happens, GW has just announced that they are gonna bring back Necromunda and BloodBowl in some form and if they are releasing anything like that I´m most likely to pick them up.
The early mock-ups and sketches they showed on their 40th anniversary (the Forge World Open Day)last week was very promising I must say. Check them out here!
