So couple of cool pieces of news this week, the Relic Knights KS is funded with oodles of free shit added to it!! Like 100s of dollars worth of stuff.

Next we have news that the UK finally has a distributor for CMON again which means Dark Age is going to have a supply line again. This is amazing news like super duper news. Especially with the new boxes instead of blister boxes that have been shown off for Forsaken and soon to see for other factions. The future is looking dark 😀

We also got to see the Farmers Guild in the wild which was pretty cool. The pre-built models I will admit is still a hang up of mine and don’t get me started on the brown they picked I hope that isn’t the final colour 🙂 The models themselves look pretty good although the big guy is an odd pose, but that could well be camera angles! Be interesting to see how they play and don’t forget you have a chance to win a team before any else with WAAC – waac-ing the crops

Finally Dwarves, Flying Dwarves, Flying Steampunk Dwarves.. Well these are certainly different compared to what has come before not just in WFB but in AoS in general. Very different and very cool!! The airship looks like it could be a bugger to transport but pretty cool still, while the units are nice but it is the jump pack dwarves that have me excited they look amazing!

Question is how bigger a drop are they going to be? from what I have seen it looks like 2/3 airship types, 3 maybe 4 units and some characters so about on par with the Fyreslayers and the Slyvaneth. Suppose the question is when will we see the dispossessed dwarves or are they just classic dwarves now really? And is it all about the mini-factions now that are done in 1 or 2 drops, and maybe a round-up book in 12 months or so. Like the Stormcast that in theory you could say have had 3 sub factions combined and more to come I am sure as they open more of the chambers.

Mat KS

Dont forget to back the small guy with our sponsor doing his Mat KS 🙂

Apologies for the lack of posts this week, the application I use for my photos is down at the moment. So need to wait for that to start-up again. Unless you want me to talk to you all in some ramblings……no one wants that right?

First shout out again to our sponsors that are rocking a new KS for gaming mats. They are great quality at a great price 🙂

Speaking of KS I have decided to go in a little deeper on the Relic knights one so some shiny minis are coming my way soon-ish-hopefully…

I suppose I can’t leave this week without a mention to the sad news Pressgangers are no more! Having got into the tournament scene via WM/H and the help of Mr Peyton and Millington it seems a shame that PP have pulled the plug rather than restructure.

I understand the reasons, the lawsuit against WotC from MTG judges plus they current system becoming unwieldy. But a lot of the bigger event may struggle for the motivation to run now. No-one shows of shiny games for the money or the reward but surely these guys deserve the acknowledgement for doing so much. Sad times!!

Games This Week

Couple more Relic Knight demos and shockingly a game of AoS!! I know I was shocked as well, I ended up coming out winner against Death army using my Stormcasts with helpful Treelord because who doesn’t like angry trees?

Hobby This Week

Continuing the AoS kick I have been painting up some of my Stormcasts because well I have the taste now 🙂

So the death of 40K as we know continues 🙂 this time with the Eldar models.. Boy do they look sexy! So of the stuff I am hearing certainly has me excited and look forward to see what else happens as Grumpy Boy heads towards Terra.

Other news is a new KS for Relic Knights, now I was starting to flirt with the game hadn’t dipped in but was watching from the outside. Now hearing a version 2 is coming by KS is interesting, yes it isn’t a CMON led one so the madness of the first one may not happen.

However the name still leads to cries on Twitter occasionally because of that first one so not sure how people will judge not it is Ninja Division doing the leg work. Time will tell, I probably wont be backing because I never usually do KS but I shall continue to watch 😉

Games This Week

No games this week due to work and the like but I do have a fun packed Sunday coming up with much madness to be had.

Hobby This Week

Back painting Ressers after a long break as I have not had the time. So hopefully I can get a wriggle on with them now. Just waiting on magnets as well so I can finish off my DFC fleets ready for a lick of paint on them as well.

Its nearly Christams….the shiniest time of year 😉

Otherside

We are getting close to the Kickstarter launched by Wyrd for their new game. So some initial thoughts about something we don’t know much about 😉

The factions all sound cool and the artwork has the warm fuzzy glow of familiarity about it 🙂

The larger skirmish to army scale is fine, looks like lots of big stompy things as well which is cool. However, it wouldn’t be an opinion if there wasnt some negatives. Playing on a 6×4 I find restrictive at the moment due to kids toys everywhere, max 4×4 is what I am preferring. It is amazing how much that extra 2ft can be difficult.

The single cast models again a lot of people are put off by, I am going to be interested to see how they achieve that.  Surely it is only for the infantry as those big robots would be horrible things to clean up and paint if 1 piece!

Finally it is a KS which is all well and good, for something so new and different from their normal IP i don’t play wyrd for going for the relative safety of KS. But why?! why run a KS other the christmas period?!!!!

It starts on the 14th of December you would assume at least 4 weeks at the minimum. What would possess them to run it now? OK people may have spends due to present after Christmas but then it doesn’t give you long for the stretch goals these big projects have in general. Screams madness to me, but what do I know 🙂 anyway good luck to them and I am sure I will be tempted at some point as I am a bit of a hobby magp……SQUIRREL!!!

Blood Bowl

Finally got to play BB this week, the mechanic is simple an easy to learn as the whole game appears to be. But for me not sure it tickles my spot, didn’t leave me wanting more. Which is a shame as the new sculpts are dam sexy!

Games This Week

Got a game with Molly this week against a Von Schill crew. Was a hard slog but in the end came up with a 3-3 draw.

Hobby This Week

Painting my K3 still plus maybe some Zipp action as well if I get organised..

I am back, after a decent break while I come to terms with being a dad again (sleep is for the weak). Much has happened in that time I have been away so time for a catch up and see where that goes…

I have been reading the new malifaux book 🙂  Oh the shiny soooo much shiny!!! I will resist I will resist!! Unrelated note I now have a Nellie crew not sure how that happened..

GW is going back to the 80s with the reintroduction of the Genestealer cult models. With perhaps the most orky non-ork vehicle ever..

I am enjoying these little releases of GW at moment lots of small self-contained ‘factions’ which mean collecting easier than masses of the same stuff.

They are also dropping Blood bowl back into existence which is surprising, I never played the game in the past and not sure if I want to go back into such things, but I am weak so who knows…

But for now I must leave you and brood on a roof somewhere as I start to paint my BMG Suicide Squad boxset.

In no way is this a new…..honest

Games This Week

Slowly getting into the groove with Faux again with a few games and playing around with some other systems as well.

Hobby This Week

So the K3 for dark age is done as are my engineers for guild ball. Moving onto the Joker crew I have and some faux as well because I always have faux to paint 🙂

Not much happening on the ranch this week, although the Batman Game Suicide Squad Box has finally gone on pre-order and my word is it a box of goodies.

Some of will know I have been flirting with this game for a long time with at least one failed start a few years ago.

But very much like Infinity a new edition and better translations seems to make all the difference 🙂 so I may MAY be getting the new box, we shall see what other shiny grabs me

Games This Week

Started a Vassal Campaign again, aiming to get the Hoffman out there so starting Ryle. Lost the first game but when against Rusty Alyce and 2 Relic hammers I will take a 1 point loss

Hobby This Week

Work has started on my Bakemono from the Bushido range, hopefully get them sorted soon. I also appear to have some Sylvaneth to build….no idea how that happened.
