Learning Curve: Blood Bowl & Lesson’s We Learn The Hard Way!

Some of us (me included) seem to only be capable of learning how to avoid a situation by being in one.  This exhibited in many ways when I was a callow youth (but those are tales for after the watershed -Ed.) and now mainly are displayed when I either buy something I don’t need or get whupped when playing games…

Blood Bowl Dwarfs available for order

The Dwarf Giants are an old team with a very long and distinguished history. They were one of the original Blood Bowl sects, and have been present for every major development in the game’s history. In more recent times they have consolidated their talents and re-launched themselves as major players in the modern Blood Bowl leagues.

Learning Curve: 40K and why I suck

ravenwing-librarian-4Hello again, sorry it’s been a while.  I think I’m in a kind of post-Christmas-binge induced slothery.  Anyway I haven’t been completely idle, I’ve painted two Blood Bowl teams (more on these when the bases are completed) and played a third game of 40K.  This time with my long-time banter buddy Ant who’d just acquired a new traitor guard regiment and wanted to get back into the game.  So how did it go?

Codex: Imperial Agents

While the Imperium draws great advantage from the unbelievable weight of manpower it can bring to bear, the diversity of its military is its greatest strength. Many, many esoteric factions are expected to answer the call to protect humanity, from the arcane Adeptus Mechanicus, to the merciless, psychically-gifted Grey Knights and all in between. The forces of the Imperium are myriad and distinct, but all follow the Emperor’s divine will – through this common goal, they strive to ensure the continued if fraught survival of Mankind.

In defence of table-top grade painting

Every year I sit and look at the pictures from events such as Games Workshop’s Golden Demon awards or Mantic’s Brush with Death and I am always suitably impressed with the quality of the work. The fine details that some painters are able to achieve astound me even after 25+ years of gaming. Across the internet, we as gamers are bombarded with pictures of other people’s models, even some from the august members of this very blog. Just in the last few weeks we have seen the impressive work on the real scale Space Marines of atbzimark. Continue reading In defence of table-top grade painting

Sunday Colour: True-Scale Space Wolves

Sorry that I’ve been absent for a few weeks.  Real life has been absurdly busy and that’s left little time for projects unfortunately and even less to type about it!  So what was going to be a short but challenging project to build some art-scale Grey Hunters has been dragged out for quite some time now.
