Heresy miniatures; make an order while you can

Heresy miniatures might not be around for much longer. If it went it would be a loss to the hobby as they are a fantastic company.

This site has beautiful minis and weapons for use in Necromunda, Dungeons and Dragons, Frostgrave, etc, so I recommend grabbing what you can while you can. The worst case scenario is you'll give a cash injection to an incredibly talented family man and his business.

Good luck Andy.

Astartes of charity marine, and a chaos havoc

A couple of new painted miniatures. The first one is for the Astartes of Charity fundraiser for Cancer Research, which I had the pleasure of contributing toward along with 99 others.

This guy's been kicking around for a while and I finally got around to finishing him.

Astartes of Charity Ultramarine complete

Finished him off. Excuse the glare, it's a very bright day.

Someone else painted a pair of yellow stripes on their marine, so I copied it. The grenade is purple to match the colour of the charity.

Cork base. I wasn't brave enough to try glow from the lens, this time.

Devastator Squad marking. Shoulder pad repurposed from Chaos marine (the whole guy had to be scraped together from the bits box).

Reaper Bones 3 Kickstarter

I'm probably going to bankrupt myself over this one...

I'm still slowly working myself through the first lot, but they're just the perfect thing for DMing DnD campaigns. I might even get some dragons and giants this time.

The cute campaign map, before it got updated:

Astartes of Charity: 100 painters, 100 Space Marines, for cancer research

I'm delighted to be a part of a spontaneous group of 100 or so painters on facebook who are going to do what the blog entry title says. I've got randomly assigned a standard marine with standard equipment, so I'm trying to do the best I can by using interesting components and as good a paintjob as I can manage. 

The camera is HARSH! I am much happier seeing the miniature a couple of feet away on the table surface! It looks great there!

I also tried some freehand on the shoulder, and scope lenses. The eye lenses are frustrating me though. 

Playing games with the class

I was playing a much simplified ad libbed dungeon crawl game with some of the kids from my class. They loved it! They worked together really well to overcome the problems I threw at them

The party demolished the troll and his kobold minions.

Of course, the children were most interested in the beasties I'd brought in.

School resources lend themselves well to playing role playing games!

Perhaps I'll see if a tabletop games club is viable in future.

Warhammer and Dungeons and Dragons in Kuwait?

I'm moving to Kuwait later this year, so I'm putting this blog entry out there now.

Googling 'Warhammer in Kuwait' and 'Dungeons and Dragons in Kuwait' and similar things like 'tabletop' and even 'board games' doesn't really get much in the way of hits, sadly. At least this way there's a small chance of someone out there doing the same google search and stumbling across this blog.

 I'm optimistic that I'll get something. But at 45 degrees Centigrade, I won't be buying any finecast. ..

Converted and painted mantic and reaper skeletons and zombies

I quickly painted up plenty of the low-level undead I had floating around my reaper box, and bits box. Like the zombies, I'm trying to get a bank of commonly fought, low level enemies. Sure, painting a great big demon is fun, but I've never even played in a game that got high enough level to need the miniature.

The undead are stationed at Disneyland

Zombie magic user and zombie dance troupe

Spell slinger with skellingtons

Bits: CSM nurgle banner, mantic elves

A lot of the skeletons are just mantic elves with head swaps for small skulls.

Flame is a fiddly bit from the end of a chainsword.

The grass tufts are by army painter.

Trying to vary the reaper bones duplicated with hot water and paint jobs.

Quick and dirty paintjobs for a slow and dirty monsters. It was kind of fun, but I might make them less sloppy at some point. But probably not soon.

Reaper Bones Goblins

Latest dent in the Reaper Bones kickstarter backlog. Trying to get some low level stuff together, as it's used more often than the high level stuff.
