The painting mojo is back for now, which means more, malifaux and shock horror more eldar (I know right who knew).

So what has tickled me this week? well nothing, I have become so engrossed in Malifaux and Guild Ball at the moment that I am struggling to get excited about anything!

I have signed up to the Breast Cancer Brawl again in October which should mean I need to paint some models before then as neither Merc list is good to go. After the holidays I will push ahead I appear to need a deadline to get anything done :)

While we all now know where I stand with GW they have burnt me out with there release schedule I can no longer get excited as there is always something else close behind it! Will stop there before I get to grumpy again.

Also well done to F&A host Kev ‘the Fighting Hobbit’ Bryant for getting BiF with his Mercs at the Welsh open last week.

Plugging away the urge to play gremlins again has meant that I am finally gearing up to paint the Whiskey Golem :)

#ToMB2 Month 4 – Hannah

Well we have reached the end of #ToMB2 I have finished Hannah.

One of the reasons I wanted to do the Freikorps (well that and VS is awesome)



Better pictures will be incoming soon as I capture all the models painted for #ToMB2 have to say I have enjoyed it greatly. Only question is what to do next year ;)

Out(Bear)Cast – Lazrus

He just keeps coming with blasty death…Say hi to Lazrus.


So he is nothing spectacular for is stats. Poor Df (not as bad as some though) while also having good Wp though. He has plenty of wounds but is a little slow, however in outcasts so many upgrades to help with this it is almost nothing to worry about.


Hate the Maker – Will not work if the leader of the crew belongs to the Guild even dual faction so even McCabe is frowned upon.

Armor – Better than standard Korps armour which is always good.

Attack Actions

Bayonet – Decent Ml attack with in-built Ram that does OK damage it does have good reach as well.

  • Unload Ordnance – A second ram is needed but adds some blasts to the damage as well which is great on a melee attack.

Grenade Launcher – Decent Sh attack that has good range and nice damage output with the all-important high weak damage and with blasts as well.

Assimilate – A 0 action that needs any 6 to hit the target number (very high Ca) that targets Wp. This allows Lazarus to use a 1ap action from the targeted Construct (can be an upgrade) and no declaring triggers. Interesting ability that allows you to get a free action out of him as well. Very flexible depending on what is on the board (looks at Pariah of Iron Levi).

Tactical Action

Auto Fire – Very powerful 2 AP action that lets him shoot 3 times in his activation what makes it scarier is that unlike Rapid Fire Lazarus can shoot different targets with this.

Self Repair – Another 0 action and one you will use more than the other as it heals Lazarus which is great to have. Unless you are construct heavy or have other healing in the list.


Stompy robot that fills in more congested area of 10 point enforcers in the Outcasts. If you think blasts will be important than you can’t go wrong with him especially with the very versatile Auto Fire.


As the man being eaten by the wendigo is being used elsewhere, my little guy has to do with punch a hole through the ice..

Nephilim protector

Do like a light beast with an abundance of armour don’t you?


We seem to be heading into a low news time at the moment, yes Ruin popped out this week. But does feel like a slow news week!

I have been playing around with different lists  for Tara at the moment just to see if I can get her down AND enjoy playing her. At the moment not sure I can say either of those things but I will persist.

Even though the pull of gremlins is growing!!!

In other news I have been running some more little demos of Guild Ball and the impressions have been good, I do think the GB guys are going to be in a very healthy position going forward.

Hopefully people enjoyed the #MeatTheButchers series and I have some ‘volunteers’ to cover other teams going forward so keep your eyes out for them :)

They have also dropped their organised play rules, which are really interesting offering a selection of different formats that can be mixed around, looks fun. Biggest thing is they want models painted, which we are seeing a great push for.

Hobby This Week

Still in a slump at the moment, painting is not going. I am not too worried I have already been very productive this year, so a bit of time off wont hurt.
