Beared-itorial

I am back, after almost a month hiatus the Bearditorials are coming again….Sorry!

So what have I missed over the last month? Well GW going into overdrive apparently.

In the space of a month we have seen 2 Codices dropping in the shape of the Space Wolves and Grey Knights.

Ok the GK appear to be just an Errata fix into 7th edition in a nice cover but it’s the thought that counts! While the puppies have got themselves some interesting stuff and apparently Santa is a Space Wolf if the sled thing is anything to go by.

Obviously we also have Nagash is back and he is F$%£ HUGE!!! It also looks like all the rumours about the various armies being merged into super army books was partially right. With the ‘End of times’ coming we should be looking at some merged books with lots of fluff. All this seems to point to 9th edition being pretty close as well.

GenCon meant that everyone else has gone a little quite with news and exciting things. But at least Wyrd gave us some interesting choices for their Nightmare model (huge Whiskey Golem) and Miss model (a teddy). While PP did give us the rules for new warcasters and some more snippets from the new book.

WAAC

WAAC

So what have I been doing then, well apparently it was helping make #WAAC a success, never in my wildest dreams did I think that we would hit the original total of £1500 for MacMillan never mind the £5000+ we have raised.

I have to thank everyone that took part, organised events, donated, played games you are the ones that have made this as big as it has become.

You can still donated at www.justgiving.com/waac to get in on the raffle although today will be the last day before I do the draw.

I have been bevearing away on my 10T with a good chunk done but still lots to do, I may also be dipping my toe into Neverborn…dont judge me.outpost 150x150

Corollary

Its big, its shiny and it is AWESOME :) If ever there was an auto-include model in the whole of Warmachine this has to be there beating its little brother the squire and maybe even that blasted Choir to the top spot.

Well I am off on the annual migration from now, so the blog is doing its Summer hibernation.

So see you all on the other side as we push for WAAC!!!

Infamy

It just keeps going and going doesnt it :O you can check it out here.

More 10T painting, with Mei Feng Crew nearly done.

Speaking of Mei managed to get a game with her at 40SS this week. I have to say both the Rail Golem and Fuhatsu are becoming favourites of mine.

Fuhatsu makes a great bodyguard target but his shooting is very very strong! While the golem just smashes faces it is great fun :).

Beared-itorial

Been a huge week this week. I have officially left the Warhammer community. I have got rid of my WoC and with that I am stepping away from Fantasy. As much as I enjoyed painting them, never had time for a game of note beyond 1000pts. So a sad day but it’s not like I don’t have enough to do :D

Malifaux

So due to a very nice man who is giving me a lift :) I will be going to my first Malifaux tournament next weekend. Which is exciting, the only problem now is I need to pull myself out of 10T love and go back to the gremlins. OK will only be using Somer and Ophelia but they give me some nice settled range of things I can go with. Spam boys or shot faces off :)

Paint/hobby Corner

Yan Lo is complete :) so I am going to be looking at the rail crew next and I am having fun making some industrial bases for them :)

I have also now acquires some Minotaurs (space marines) so I look forward to doing something with those :)

Its all very very quite, too quite.

I have nothing of note to talk about this week :S I can only assume as we move towards GenCon that the shift is starting to happen in that we get no new shiny things BUT lots of spoilers for GenCon releases…

In other news Luchador the card game was successful on KS, so looking forward to that as a Christmas present as it is due December :)

Malifaux

All that changed when Wyrd the buggers dropped the newsletter on Friday grrr…

So to the juicy bits that we havent seen so (mainly alternate sculpts)

Very scary lady, best sculpt for her so far..

Very different and usual, not sure I like the front one, jaw seems a bit off.

I have seen on Twitter they have not been recieved too well, but I like them. Feel like people conscript on the spot to fight all the bad in Malifaux.

Much much better than the old metal ones, I like. Although have noticed Wyrd have moved away from textured fur! A knock on effect of the CAD?

We have all seen poster boy, but the other guy I am not sold on at all :(

Very surprised to see 2 in the box, but I love both of them, here is hoping it is an easy conversion to change arms around :)

Paint/hobby Corner

More Yan Lo painting this week, in fact I am pretty close to being done with the initial crew, the monochrome look has been fun to do and after I settled into a technique was actually pretty quick thing to pull off.

Been having fun with the wet palette as well, not completely convinced it is for me but I am going to continue to use it with the 10T stuff to see how we get on.

Monitor

Continuing my move towards getting my CoC painted here is my Monitor;


Boomhowlers

It has taken me nearly 6 months to build and paint these guys BUT at last they are done!

pStyrker and Caine are very happy about this, as is Murdoch he has had no-one to lead since I finished him :S

I was tempted to do some tartan but in the end I was too lazy!
