It’s been a long time since I spent time thinking about Warhammer Fantasy. At the end of things, when the End Times were upon us, our lives were changed forever as Games-Workshop announced the end of Warhammer Fantasy. When I set up my new game room I was able to put out the army on display (for the first time ever). It made me excited to think about getting the army back on the table.
A Walk Down Memory Lane
The Dwarf army was the very first army I ever thought about collecting when I originally purchased the Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition starter set. Yes, I was enamored with the valiant Brettonian Knights and the watery Lizardmen of that set. Indeed, even my first games were with those two armies. There was that glint of gold in my eye though as I dreamed of building that first dwarf army.
We have a pair of Kickstarter treats for you this Monday! We are delving into our Fantasy roots with these two projects featuring our favorites! Dwarfs and Goblins. Only your backing can help determine who is the best. Let’s get chopping!
Female Fantasy Dwarfs by Martin Pirsch
Blood Bowl is hot right now with the release of season two edition and filling out those teams with cool models is always cool. In this new Kickstarter by Chaos Spawn Miniatures features alternate sculpts for Fantasy Sports Dwarfs. Of course, you could use these for any fantasy game, but they have all of the look for a game of Blood Bowl. If you have had enough with beards on your dwarfs, look to this Kickstarter to provide you some really cool alternate sculpts. Of course, the old dwarf in me is screaming that these aren’t nearly beardy enough!
Greenskull Castle – Miniatures
Emvicreative is a new company trying to get things moving with it’s first Kickstarter, Greenskull Castle – Miniatures. The miniatures will be resin cast with 15 different possible sculpts available. The models have a classic hawkish nose which will help them fit in with your existing goblin miniature lines. Alternatively, these would make great additions to a Fantasy roll playing game. All of these models have real character to them. I think that goes to the passion that the team has in creating these great figures.
Did we miss your favorite project?
If you find these interesting, or think I missed a Kickstarter that you would like to hear more about please share your thoughts with us via the Facebook group or at our email.
Marvel: Crisis Protocol by Atomic Mass Games is a table top miniature game using the Marvel comic books for inspiration. With the huge success of the property and the long lived nature of the Marvel Comic Universe there is tons of content for everyone. Especially with the success of Marvel at the movie theater many of these characters are becoming household names and are growing in increased popularity. For us miniature gamers who doesn’t want to put characters like Captain America, Iron Man, Wolverine, and Punisher on the table?
With ever growing choice in the miniature gaming hobby though does this game pan out as something worth buying or should you pass on it?
Hey all. It’s been a little while, but between taking a break from the show (just a break!!!), things have been a little busy. Adepticon has come and went and there have been some serious panic hobby before and now I am riding the high of hobby post convention!!! I have always really liked the game mechanics for Infinity, but I haven’t been really keen on the PanOceania that I started the game with. I have always had my eyes on the look of the models for USAriadna since I started. I had originally went down the path of doing Combined Army, which I like the look and want to get back to that project at some point, my painting mojo just hasn’t been there to work on those figures. Our local Warcor announced and Infinity escalation league with a number of new players and I threw my hat in.
It started out with the USAriadna Army starter box I had here along with the Unknown Ranger and Van Zant Gen Con edition models I had laying around here and with less then a week before the league started, I raced to get those models done. I also started ordering some additional models to start filling out some special model selections and other options to help flesh out the army.
