Blood Bowl Painting Chaos

In an earlier post I showed off my assembled Willy Miniatures’ Chaos Chosen team. Figured I’d post an update on how the painting is going.

First up the team were given series of black, grey and white rattle can sprays. This was intended to be a zenithal undercoat although rattlecans aren’t necessarily the most accurate/reliable tool for this process.

Rogue Games Blood Bowl League: Kick Off Imminent

Oh no, yet another game system to get involved in! There is a Blood Bowl league about to start up at Rogue Games and I’ve been talked into taking part (admittedly probably not that hard – say about 10 minutes chatting?). Now, I have a love/hate relationship with Blood Bowl, I can’t really explain why – maybe its just because I’m crap at the game, or perhaps I just lament the death of my players that I’ve nurtured from their debut games through to being at the top of their profession too much 😉

Either way Blood Bowl 2019 – I’m playing! And I’m playing with Chaos Chosen Undecided – unless I change my mind (again). I have recently assembled a team I have owned since my last dabble in Blood Bowl, and they are gorgeous miniatures. The alternative Chaos team by Willy Miniatures, which has been sat around untouched for a criminal amount of time.

Warcry Quest

Warcry has proved to be a staple of a Tuesday evening’s gaming at Rogue Games. For a few weeks now, there has been talk about getting our Warbands questing for glory. A week last Tuesday night (yes its taken that long to get this written) Andy and myself embarked our warbands upon their Quests. In a characteristically last minute unorganised manner I had set up my campaign roster moments before leaving for the store, and quickly printed it, using GW’s Varanscribe.

Warcry Ravaged Lands: Corpsewrack Mausoleum

Warcry has unexpectedly captured my attention since its release in August. It was a game I didn’t think I would enjoy and I certainly didn’t plan on buying into the game. However after a watching and playing a couple of demo games I found I actually really enjoyed it. I have since played in two events and play it most weeks at Rogue Games’ store. From a personal point of view, like most table top games, it is more enjoyable to play with painted models over painted terrain. For the second of the two events I volunteered to paint one of the Warcry terrain sets for Rogue Games – the Corpsewrack Mausoleum, in fact during the first event I played all three of my games this over the bare plastic set (I wonder did this in any way influence my decision lol). This is a brief rundown of how I went about painting the Corpsewrack Mausoleum.

Rogue Games’ First Warcry Event

This is a quick write up about my first Warcry tournament which was hosted by Rogue Games in Leyland. Over the last week or so I’ve been frantically putting paint on models to allow me to play in the event on Saturday afternoon. There was no painting requirement, I just prefer to play with painted models, especially in events. I played 3 very good games of Warcry as part of the event with my Splintered Fang warband.

Gaming At Rogue Games

Today I introduced my son to something new, the local games store! This is something that has recently opened up in Leyland; Rogue Games, and its only five or so minutes from home. I have only really just started using it. Its a really nice shop, nice and clean with a modern open plan feel to it.

I’d finished work early and as the Mrs was off out to celebrate her friend’s birthday, me and the lad got out from under her feet while she was getting ready. I took Josh down to Rogue Games with some X-Wing models, hoping we’d be able to play a game.
