  1. The Greenboyz mega catchup post #2 (52 minis weeks ???)

    Weheeey! Congrats! 😊
  2. The Greenboyz mega catchup post #1 (52 minis weeks ???)

    absolutely love this. I've never played blood bowl and have no experience but I love the idea of a small number of characterful models which you've excellenty assembled here. Love the story! BB
  3. Braggoth's Beast Hammer in Action

    Agreed. I played a few games on Monday and with the points decrease they were good! BB
  4. Braggoth's Beast Hammer in Action

    Interesting stuff. I run ironjawz so am always fascinated to see how Gore-Gruntas work as I haven't had much luck with them yet myself! Sounds like a good game though!
  5. Countdown - 2 days - final push

    So I have but a few hours of modelling time left before my friend arrives on Sunday (I work heavily on the weekends - very long days). So have just an hour or so this evening to get some finishing touches in. I have put aside the scenery for the most part, it is up to a just about acceptable standard. I have never used the oxide wash technical paint before (can't remember the proper name for it), and I was a little heavy handed/have used it wrong. So I'm not too keen on some of that on the mausoleum as you can see here: But, as I said, it's acceptable and I had no scenery at all previously other than the Baleful Realmgates so I'm pretty psyched about getting some battles in with this stuff. Especially Skirmish! I can't remember if I included this in the previous post, but I managed to basecoat almost every colour on the Warchanter, so he won't be a standout black model on the table (only the gore-gruntas will do that from my side *sad face*). Here are some (very dodgy) pics of the army arrayed on top of my desk with horrific lighting: I have bought some fine detail pens with which I intend to add some black detailing to the armour and then cover with freehand painting to stop it shining (unless anyone can recommend a matt gloss that would work as well...?) and will update with pics when possible. On a different note...I was casually reading white dwarf and realised I had kind of achieved a 17 year old life goal of mine; to have a model featured in White Dwarf magazine. It's not even a model I'm particularly proud of from my Bloodbound as it was fairly rushed, but beggars can't be choosers and there it is! It's a proper honour to be included with some incredible models from other painters from around the world! Proud! BB
  6. Beastclaws Ice Mammoth!

    This is awesome! What rules will you use?
  7. Countdown - 4 days...procrastination

    So I popped in to GW as I had some spare time and it proved to be an error. I bought the Sigmarite Mausoleum kit. I did this in a fit of impulse so that the games we played would have some awesome scenery. I then spent the next 8 hours building it and slapping some paint on it! I've also got my Weirdnob Shaman to an acceptable point. I'm not certain about the smoke but as it's my first attempt at painting magical smoke I'm quite happy! Also shown are some river sections I made a few years back...I'm not sure you can see but they have not stored well! The result of using thin cereal box cardboard and pva before water effects! Booo! also Baleful Realmgates with some paint to match the Mausoleum.... It's all happening! BB
  8. What happened to Golfag and Greasus?

    It's a shame. I actually want to care about the fluff. Genuinely I'm even trying my best. It's just that nothing is any place and nothing matters. So add all the detail you want, it doesn't happen anywhere and nobody dies...
  9. What happened to Golfag and Greasus?

    Yep. Justifying living through the end of the old world into this one is tough...Archaon is stretching the boundaries of plausibility as it is!
  10. Countdown - 5 days

    So this update is a little behind! The photos attached are actually old now and behind where I'm at. The goalposts keep shifting on this task and I now think it's as follows: -finish 10 Brutes (to better than tabletop standard) -finish 10 ardboyz -finish Shaman anything else is a bonus!
  11. Countdown - 7 days

    Apologies for any grammatical errors in this post. My crazy work schedule and my almost fanatical devotion to getting some paint on this force are leaving me incredibly drained and potentially delusional (it depends...can you see those monkeys too?). However, progress is starting to show in a satisfying way. All 10 Brutes are now equally painted (nowhere near finished but arguably tabletop standard ) and are looking pretty good. the swarm of Brutes around the Megaboss is so satisfying to see, I'm so glad they put an in-game rule to make that be appealing to people tactically. It makes sense and looks awesome, so why not!? I also slapped a little pain on my Weirdnob Shaman. I have a few ideas with this guy and I was pottering around with colour schemes for him too. I think I'm going to make him darker than the rest of the force considerably, and I may dabble with some very basic OSL on some sections. I've tried it before and it did NOT go well for me haha. I'm also a little nervy about the smoke having never painted anything like it. Anyone know of any tutorials or have any personal tips? Thanks BB
  12. Rogue Idol

    Is it still worth taking? I'm not hugely keen on the model but I love the concept. It would be fun to convert one and give it a different paint job but only if I'd use it... BB
  13. Squiggoths in AoS

    Wow I can only hope. With the recent trend towards larger and larger models it wouldn't surprise me. My storage space is small as are the majority of my games so I kinda hope it isn't as if they release one I'l buy it and have nowhere to keep the damn thing! ? BB
  14. Ironjawz Warband for Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire

    It'll be strength in game why they chose Boyz. The mask is definitely inspired by the old model - I love it. I love them actually! Very dynamic and cross the border on WFB and AOS Orcs/Orruks in my mind! BB
  15. Help please - Tactics vs Daemons of Tzeentch

    Hi all, In 9 days time(!) I'll be facing daemons of Tzeentch for the first time. Starting with Skirmish and moving up to full games. All in matched play so splitting horrors is costed etc. Having never faced them before I was wondering if you had any tips? The destiny dice mechanic sounds scary - how does it work? The sheer amount of mortal wounds they can dish out seems terrifying for my Ironjawz who will need to close quickly to see them off. Especially in Skirmish level games, what should I focus on putting in my force to deal with their threat? Brutes or Boyz... BB
