Let's WAB!

The other day I was having a conversation about wargaming with my best mate from Hungary and we realised that there aren't any games left that we both play. Confrontation long dead and Warhammer kicking its last kicks, all we have is Blood Bowl, and so he has drawn my attention to historical wargaming - Warhammer Ancient Battles in particular.

Dark Heresy chaos sorceror

A good friend of mine asked me to help him with a model he converted. It is made of different GW parts and is going to be a chaos sorceror in his Dark Heresy campaign.

Big Update - I'm back!

After six months of absence I am back to blow the dust from the shelves again and begin updating my blog about what I have been up to recently.

BloodBowl Lizardmen - Painting #1 - Saurus

I am probably the last person who still didn't try the fancy new washes that appeared in the stores of many leading companies of late. This is about to change with my new Lizardmen BloodBowl team.

BloodBowl Lizardmen - Building the team

In the last few years I haven't been playing blood bowl on the tabletop, but used the pc / psp version  instead. And since it is much easier to try new teams I abandoned my long time favourite orcs and gave some others a go. Of all the teams that I tried I liked the playstyle of the Lizardmen the most, so I decided to make a tabletop crew for them.

A thing that goes bump in the dark...

The ClaphamWargamers Guild organised a Malifaux story event day and I intend to take a Dead Rider in my crew. As the official model is not out yet, I looked around for a few proxies.

Speedpainting the Ortegas - Part 2

Not much to write about... Finished painting the ortega crew for my Malifaux demos and took some photos with both demo crews and the books.

Speed-painting the Ortegas

Last weekend I went through my cases to see how I was doing with painted minis. I realised that on the bottom of it there was a crew that I practically did not touch for many months. The Ortegas.

Do zombies dream of undead sheep?

On my first day back at the club I had a game against Wills and his Dreamer crew. I was happy to see a new master in game but I was also a bit uneasy as they have got quite a reputation on the forums. I very soon realized why.

Desert effect - test run

Coming back from holiday I have decided to try a few new techniques. One of them is the use of antique effect varnish or crackle paint. I intended to use this for making cracked earth style desert bases - mainly for the ortegas, but might come handy for latter projects too.

Back from holiday

I have been on holiday during the past 10 days. I went home, to Hungary, to see my family and friends and be away from the usual everyday things, including gaming. Despite this I managed to buy a Feldherr case, pick up a new game system and my best friend who still lives there and is a gamer too has introduced me to a fairly new club and shop. I thought this lot, and the club in particular, is worth posting about. It is called Gólem Művek (Golem Works).

A bit of painting

Trying to keep my progress I continued painting Seamus & Co. Although there are still parts I want to finish on them I decided to do their bases so that they feel more like actual pieces rather then wip bits.

Wednesday, 26 January 2011

Seamus vs. Lucius

As promised the report of the 30SS game I had against Talos's Lucius crew. Talos flipped for location and Special occurance and got badlands and Soulstone Vein, although we actually had a pioneer town, using the great new terrain pieces in the club.

Malifaux testplay

Just a quick update for today; we had a bit of Malifaux playtesting of the new minions from Rising Powers with Bill.

Sunday, 16 January 2011

Shopping and getting sidetracked

Having run out of some main materials over the holidays I thought it was time to stock up a bit. Fortunately CassArt had a sale on so I could save some money on this.

Punk Zombies - still not finished

I finished painting quite late last night so I did not update but I managed to carry on painting the punks. They are nowhere near finished yet though.

Sunday, 9 January 2011

Punk Zombies - step 2

Just a quick update from yesterday, more to come later on today. Trying to keep my schedule, I got on with the half-painted Punk Zombies yesterday.

All that made it to the shelves in 2010

Rather then making resolutions I decided to write a summary for myself with the start of the new year; this way I can see how much I've done and can aim to do more in the next 12 months.

Malifaux Merry Christmas

As I mentioned earlier there was a day of playing the Malifaux Christmas story encounters at mine where we used the new half-ready mining town as the scene.

Sunday, 19 December 2010

No Christmas holiday without getting stuck abroad

The weather conditions of London and British Airways made a team effort and gave us a few extra days of holiday. No progress this weekend...

Sunday, 12 December 2010

Mining Town construction

I didn't really feel like painting in the weekend but I still wanted to do some progress. As I organised a day of gaming at mine for after Christmas I thought it would be a good idea to build some terrain.

More Seamus and Copycat Killer

I had some more time to do some painting on Monday and today so I carried on with my new favourites. They are coming along nicely, I might actually finish them within reasonable time.

Sunday, 21 November 2010

Seamus and the little fella

This weekend I finally got around to start painting Seamus and the Copycat Killer. I only finished their faces but I am really happy that I took my time and paid these pieces the attention they deserve.

Malifaux markers #2

forgot to post this up, all coming soon...

Monday, 1 November 2010

Counters, markers and bases for Malifaux

The tournament is next weekend. I have already given up on painting all my minis but I have to get ready with all markers and counters for my crew.

Sunday, 24 October 2010

The pied piper of Hamelin wip#1

Hamelin the Ratcatcher is a mercenary character in the Malifaux universe themed around the old fable of the pied piper of Hamelin. And a very nice sculpt with exciting details.

Sunday, 17 October 2010

Dead miners finished!

Now that the weather turns and I tend to spend more and more nights indoors, I am trying to get back into the habit of regular painting. This weekend I picked the crooked men I based and primed a while back.

'Vintage' w40k Tau army

I dug up my old Tau army and had a game of 40k with a friend just for old times sake. I am trying to decide wether I want to finish them or just sell them. Either way I will want to post them sooner or later so here we go...

Infinity! PanO starter set

After a trial game in the club some time ago I bought a PanOceania starter box for Infinity but I never assembled them. Until now.

Wednesday, 28 July 2010

More dead stuff

My latest order has arrived!

Béte Noire in 6 hrs

There was a Malifaux painting contest announced in the club ages ago but I was too busy / lazy and haven't painted anything. The closing date was today so last night I finally stopped panicking and started painting.

Monday, 19 July 2010

Still here

... just a bit busy. ;_;

McMourning's Morgue - WIP #1

I have done these bases for McMourning and his crew a few months back, but haven't had the chance to post them until now.

Madame Sybelle's Saloon of Affordable Love - WIP #1

I made a few sketches of terrain elements as displays for my resurrectionist crews ages ago. I was going to post them but then I forgot and the files got lost in the maze of wip-projects on my pc. I came across them while looking for something else and thought 'hell, why not?'

Zombie Time! + yesterday's game

Further advancing in my plan to paint all my crews I started the Punk Zombies tonight.

Monday, 3 May 2010

Weeping-Rusty-Sado-Madonna wip#3 - half term

A bit of painting through the weekend got me here. There are many things to fix on her, but for now I'll leave the mini as it is.

Sunday, 2 May 2010

The Third Belle

Having two of them painted and Sybelle 'on the way' I decided to slap some colours on the last Belle too so I would have my crew mostly painted for the next game.

Friday, 30 April 2010

Weeping Sado-Madonna, Wip #2

 Someone popped the idea of doing monthly vows of what minis we will be painting. As there were only a few days left of April the obvious choice for me was to finish Sybelle. I failed, of course.

Freebooter's Fate - review in a nutshell

Today I had the opportunity to have a look at Freebooter’s new game the “Freebooter’s Fate” at Salute 2010. I was lucky enough to be introduced to it by Werner Klocke himself, whose work I have long admired.

Gaming, gaming and more gaming

I find this club (CGC) better and better every time I go there. Yesterday there was Infinity intro night in which I wanted to participate as I long wished to try this game.

Sunday, 18 April 2010

Not much...

I have done almost nothing hobby-wise this weekend. I was gonna paint Sybelle up but then the we had such nice weather and I just couldn't stay in. :D
I'm gonna be fairly busy all week and next Saturday is Salute, so probably won't paint for another week or so...
I have done some more sketches for some of my many side-projects and I had another great game on Tuesday against a different Guild crew.

Tuesday, 13 April 2010

The Weeping Madonna wip#1

Started painting Sybelle...

Thursday, 8 April 2010

Shot twice by the Ortegas, then frosted by Rasputina...

Finally I have found a great club in Central London where people are at least interested in Malifaux.

Monday, 5 April 2010

Bloody Parasol...

I have finished painting the second Belle. Including the freehand on the parasol and the fishnet gloves. It certainly was a good experiment, but hell I won't paint small fiddely bits for a while that's for sure!

Sunday, 28 March 2010

Undead Hooker #2

I have a game on Tuesday so I wanted to finish painting the Seamus box to have fully painted crew on the table, but I'm so miserably slow that I could only do one more Belle this weekend. And I haven't even finished it! But the good news is that I've got my cam and made time to take photos of everything I missed lately so soon all posts will have the pics uploaded.

Sunday, 21 March 2010

More Malifaux

I gave this whole painting thing a second thought and started painting my Belles aka 'Undead Hookers'.

Sunday, 14 March 2010

First Malifaux minis painted

As promised to my self I started painting my Resurrectionists for Malifaux. I picked the 'spirit' models first as I had something in mind for them (namely the Hanged and the Grave Spirit).

Wednesday, 10 March 2010

Back on line

It's been two long months since I last posted anything here (or been on the net at all as a matter of fact). In this time I have moved flat and went on holiday. I hardly had any free time for doing anything hobby wise but I managed to base some minis and got some new stuff in, including a beautiful sculpt from Werner Klocke (Freeboter Miniatures) and one figure from Artefactory. I will be back on the weekend with pictures and will start painting my Resurrectionists in several waves, probably starting with The Hanged and Mindless Zombies.

Nicodem convert finished + some Totems

After I let the putty cure all day yesterday I could finish Nicodem today. The lantern got two bars on the sides and an extra rim on the base and I completed Nico's hand.

Friday, 8 January 2010

Nicodem grows a hand

My better half is out with colleagues so I got a quiet night in. :) Therefore I carried on with Nico's right arm.
