Raging Heroes Toughest Girls in the Galaxy II Kickstarter Freebies

Today arrived my freebies for backing the Raging Heroes Kickstarter for their Toughest Girls in the Galaxy II campaign. I have been a fan of Raging Heroes for quite some time and have a number of their models for my current dark elf and daemon armies for Warhammer Fantasy/9th Age. All of those models are metals and have been really, really well done. When I had backed this Kickstarter, Warhammer Fantasy (8th Edition) was still a thing and when I saw this, I thought I would use it as a way to build an all female model Dark Elf army. It’s taken a while, as with any miniature Kickstarter to get the models to the point that they can start to ship and this is just the very first bit of models that I will be receiving. The bonus is that I still plan on doing these guys up as a new army, but whether that actually ever hits the table or just becomes a hobby project…I am not sure yet.

Avengers Assemble. Marvel Universe Miniatures Game

Recently I picked up the Marvel Universe Miniatures Game by Knight Models. I have always been a fan of Marvel comics, since I was very young. Still, with the number of games I own that aren’t probably getting enough attention seems to continue to grow so I held off when I first saw this game released. After much staring at this and Knight Models Batman skirmish game for quite some time, I decided to jump all in and picked this game up.

Dropfleet Commander – Adding to the Starter


So, you have the two player starter for Dropfleet Commander and now you want to add some models to your list and grow your game? Well, I don’t know the right answers to this question, but here’s where I am taking both the UCM and Scourge starters from the recommended ships to then next points level. The goal is to add a single carrier and frigate sprue to the list, while trying to fill some of the holes we were left wanting with the starter game.

Dropfleet Commander First Impressions

I didn’t really mention it much and we don’t talk much about Kickstarters and what we are backing on the show, but I backed the Dropfleet Commander one and it has recently made it to my door! If you don’t know what Dropfleet Commander is, it’s a space ship miniatures game intended to similulate fleet actions attempting to land assets on planetary locations for the purpose of defending or retaking planets. The game is by Hawk Wargames and their other big game, Dropzone Commander, is a 10 mm combined infantry/land/air assets attempting to retake stretegic locations within a small area of a planet.

Blood Bowl First Review

All right fans, it’s time to take a look at the new version of Blood Bowl. I just picked up my copy this morning from Pegasus Games here in Madison for their Black Friday, shop in your pajama’s sale. There were plenty of Games-Workshop games players this morning all looking for the black friday shopping discount. Having been mostly away from buying of models from GW in a while, I have to say looking at the pricing that I can see why they were in the store.

Rant aside, I love Blood Bowl since I was introduced to it probably 12 or so years ago. I am an Orc player primarily and my standard team of old is 4 Black Orcs, 4 Blitzers, and 3 line Orcs (well, my base team anyways) with a couple of re-rolls and whatever is left is turned into fan factor. Well, that’s my starting team anyways and then we go from there. I also have a dark elf team, but I built that when dark elves still had throwers and no assassins and I remember a few years ago that changed which disappointed me a little since I had converted up a thrower. Oh well! That’s the way these things work sometimes.

Merry Mayhem 2016 Terrain Day #2

Today was a very productive day with friends Dustin and Evan swinging by to help out Brian and myself work on terrain for this year’s upcoming Merry Mayhem event weekend. You haven’t seen much about Merry Mayhem specifically on this site, but scoot over the http://merry-mayhem.com and check out all of the information, dates, and how to register. In the mean time, while your here, look at all of the new terrain coming to the table this year at the event!


Ours. Neverborn Rise

I have been painting and playing quite a bit of Malifaux. Got started really by listening to the audio drama podcast, Tales of Malifaux, which is really good. So far, everything I have and am working on is Neverborn and I have only a single master, Lilith painted. I hope to soon start working on “The Queen Returns” Titania box and start playing with her as well.


Weekend Terrain Workshops

Last couple of months has seen a lot of work on terrain projects happening around the house as I start to get prepped and ready for this year’s Merry Mayhem. I can’t take credit for doing the work on most of these projects, but the WIP progress results look great so far!
