Quite in the depths of winter at the club

Well August is over and it has been very quite indeed. Many of the lads have had parties and what not to go to and their minis sit forlornly in their boxes but not us brave older souls no. We headed off to the club for 2 games of 40K and a game of Blood Bowl.
Necrons vs S. Wolves (Wolves won)

Orks vs Sisters (orks won)

Hordes and hordes of Orks

My Wicked Elf team vs the Evil Dwarf Team so far I am 2 up but my ladies are ending up in the reserves section or worse injured ouch.

Duelling Gamers August entry for real this time

Now that August is almost over I can now show off my Fell Bats, well that is what I am using them as. I have had these sitting around for a long time and as the Vampires can't use bows or missiles of any sort I thought a unit of flyers was in order. Out came the bitz box and behold 3 very old carrion? that I will use as the big bats. Got no idea if fell bats are any good in the army lists but big flying things always seems to upset the opposition. I think if my maths is correct I should have around $150 up my sleave for the month of September and the paint will flow on a couple of Character models.

Fell Bats......yes they are really.....
I have noticed that Nagash has returned with a nice new addition that allows Vampire Counts to ally with Tomb Kings and thus Bow armed skellies are now a possibility but as luck would have it a couple of years ago I gave away all my lovingly painted tomb kings as I had never used them. So will I lash out on the new Nagash Book, not likely. Pity as I still have the old metal Nagash.

And now for something completely different 15mm Wurtemberg Fusiliers straight off the paint table this week. Lovely AB 15mm from Nic at Eureka thanks Nic.

A Tale Of Duelling Gamers my belated July attempt

Well July was actually a pretty dismal month for me on a personal level and I lost the drive to do any painting of real note for the "ATODG" but nearing the end of August my July entry is ready and I am part way through the August entry as well (one should hope so).

Yes I know they are Bretonians, and old ones at that, yet I had this great desire years ago after reading some of the "fluff" about the Lamian Vampires and how the girls were able to sway others to their most vampiric of ways. So digging through some of my old unpainted Bretonians I came up with a nice unit of 5 from old knights and knight errant models. Fishing through the bits box gave me the undead shields I needed and a liberal splash of super dip wood stain and varnish and ta da. suitably grim looking knights that are meant to be ummmmm Black Knights, hmmm yellow, hmmm oh well.

I always admire the freehanded banners of the better painters, as I am not one a quick fish around the net and behold vampire banner for the Black Knights.
The Art Work is By Anna Stokes and is used without permission but I don't plan on selling it just playing with it.
I am hoping that the painting juice is back and flowing as I have some fell bats and character models to paint and potentially another unit of werewolves to take me to the September dead line. What I really need to do is make some suitably grim terrain to support the small army but I just don't see myself getting the time to do so.

August at the Club

Winter is biting pretty hard for August and the club numbers are really down which is a pity but I have had the chance to game some lads that I don't normally get to do so which is really nice.
Just a few pics this time. Just to keep the club informed that we are still happening.
My Pandora Crew that fell foul to a Ramos Crew using the new Malifaux 2.0 Rules

Do you think I could even eliminate a gunsmith? Nope.

Nomads for Infinity

Space Orks vs Imperial Fist Clones, at 1500 points you get a lot more Orks than Marines and well the Marines fell over this time. A rematch has been asked for.
