Today Andrew, Jake, and Joe finish part 2 of their Orc and Goblin Review by answering listener questions and talking tactics.
Special thanks this episode to Paul Meredith for the bits for my secret project I’m working on for 2014!
So as I’m just getting back into blogging, I thought it was good to let you know all know what I’ve been working on. With Adepticon being over, some of it isn’t Warhammer Fantasy Battles because to be honest, Ive kinda wanted a small break. So with the new FAQ’s out, Ive been more focused on on building what lists to take to Blood in the Sun 3 and Buckeye Battles 2013. Add in the fact that I’ve got 3 other Local tournaments coming up and between now and June I’ll have 5 Tournaments.
To take a meaningful break while still preparing for tournaments. Rob Phaneuf of the Magnificent Bastards has been keeping me updated lately on some of the sales from online companies such as Miniature Market and I picked up some stuff.
What you are looking at here is starter boxes from Dystopian Wars, Uncharted Seas, and other misc. items.
I decided to take some time and paint some of this stuff up along with my KoW Dwarf army I have been building. Here are some progress pics.
Now you might have noticed my dreadball team has green skin. After a couple of painting trials I basically came up with two different options.
The one of the left was flesh colored as most teams are painted, but the one on the right – Green almost Incredible Hulk like skin. This brought me to an idea for fluff. Whats to say that these space Dwarves are not so caught up in the idea of winning the game, that they alter their body with Gamma Radiation (ya I know, not an original idea). I kinda imagine in my head that they are the Hulks’ of the planet Krunk. In my head I see them as both feared and made fun of by those who are not of the planet Krunk. The fans of other teams and the other teams themselves have nicknamed them D’orks as in Dwarvish Orks, but the last time a team called them that in public – they were all killed immediately after the press conference.
Either way, I’m rolling with it as I like the color scheme and really that’s all that matters.
I haven’t abandon the Devlan Mud I still own or Agrax Earthshade, but it is a good product. I’m pretty sure it’s one of Wisco Dices Sponsor’s who makes this, so I’ll see if I can get him to throw in a comment to tell us where we can get it from. Cause it is a good product.
Well that’s about it for what I’ve been painting for now and as today is May 17th, for those of you who are following the Painting Challenge that Consey and I have – I’m up today 219-217
As far as list building goes, I’ll get back to what I’ve been planning for Blood in the Sun 3 and Buckeye Battles on my next blog update. As for now I’ve got to get back to painting and editing Episode 40B – Our Orc and Goblin Review part 2.
Have a good one guys and gals!
So it’s been a while since I did a post and the dust has finally settled from Adepticon and work that I can start to blog again.
Today I figured that I’d go over what I recieved in my Adepticon Swag Bag for 2013. I know that its been a good while since Adepticon, but I think its still worth going over this for those who didnt get the opportunity to go.
What you’re looking at is a picture of all of the contents of the regular swag bag. I did not get any upgrades this year, I just wanted to get the basics as I volunteered.
Contents are the bag were:
Warmachine Starter Box – Cygnar (Privateer Press has been doing this for a couple years, its almost expected by attendees now)
Ravage Magazine – Feb-March Issue
Some little mouse miniature with a cart from On the Lamb Games
Cards for Zombiesmith, ATC (Warhammer and Warmahordes tournament in August), Table War (20% discount), Kickstarter reminder for Tablescapes from Secret weapon Miniatures
Round base from War Gamma
Some Beastman mini with a gun
2 Bases from Secret Weapon Miniatures (Every Year it just seems the detail on these gets better and better)
Fire ball from Armour Cast and 10% off coupon
Quick start guide to Flames of War
Sprue Tank for Flames of War
Overall, I have to say this year kinda felt *ho-hum*. I mean great job to all the Adepticon guys who set this up and continue to produce a great bag overall, but as someone who’s been going for about 6 years, I feel like its all the same thing I get every year. You have to remember I was there before the Warmachine boxes in the bags was introduced,The bag was much smaller then. And the 10 year bag when they gave us a Adepticon Mech for the anniversary, oh my lord was it awesome! Either way to make you salivate from home I will go over the contents….
Here’s a couple more close up shots so you get a good look at every thing though. It was a really solid bag.
Until next time though my friends, have a good one.
