My first Blood Bowl league!

Cork’s Carnage Cup!
My first Blood Bowl league!

Welcome to the first Blood Bowl centred post on my Blog! In this post I shall talk about my first Blood Bowl league game against some Dark Elves and also my teams roster and plans for the team as I learn to play Blood Bowl and develop strategies, in which feel free to add some advice.

The Team!

So this is my team roster (above). So as you see number 7, ‘Mrug’ was a casualty from the first game as he ran head first into a Dark Elf witch. Also number 10, a Black Orc Blocker got MVP as he was nominated after smashing an Elf, and here are three players that were nominated…

Gorsnik (Centre) was nominated because of a completion point, and Zagrak (Right) was nominated for a casualty point, and finally Garuk (Left) was nominated because he was the only other painted model at the time. Which I find funny, hopefully I can progress a little more on the painting of my team as I move through the league.

The First Game!

The Game was ‘Malice in Chains’ Vs ‘The Brute Squad’ (Home VS Away). First half was a brutal fight between the two sides as the orcs kicked off. It was a long fight for four turns then the elves broke through and scored a touchdown in the fourth turn. The fight continued as this time the orcs had the ball but the elves fought them off long enough till half time.

Battered and beaten the Orcs gather some vigour after kicking a few squids in the dugout and make to the pitch for the second half as the elves are about to kick off a blizzard sweeps onto the pitch which might prove handy for the orcs as the slippery elves start to slow… But the elves still prevailed and scored yet another touchdown, making it 2-0. Then what seems like a turn of luck, the Orcs have the ball and are fighting up the field, knocking elves left, right and centre but the elves held them off until full time where number one of The Brute Squad was 5 squares from the touch line.

A sad loss for the orcs and an amazing first win in the cup for the Dark elves. Below will be some pictures from the game. More to come as the league progresses, Every match! Every Change!

Update!... Finally.

Update!... Finally!
Rebirth of a Blogger!

(New Profile Pic)

Trying to better about this whole blogging thing… so since I’ve got a better phone now I can take better pictures, so that means better quality posts, which motivates me, so here’s how the updates will be rolling out…

There are now different pages on the blog for the different systems in which I’ll be posting about, as you see above; Warhammer 40k, Warhammer Age of Sigmar, Blood Bowl, Warhammer 30k, and a page for Inquisitor 28mm and Armies on Parade 2017, all in order of how frequent they will be updated. All posts will also appear on the main page.

Foundation posts will be set for the new layout of the page and they will be posted in the next week. These foundation posts will, yeah you guessed it! Be the foundation of each section detailing the projects I’m working and nice pictures to go along, and the leagues I’m running in as where I stand in them and a few “BATREPs”.

So Stay tuned to Instagram for regular updates, hopefully… I’m trying to be good at that too. And throughout this week on the blog and Facebook. For more bloggers check the Links in the margin!

My Kollection of Khorne.

So here is my second blog post and it has been about two weeks from the first blog post “What’s this blog about?” so I hope everyone has had some fortuitous luck in their battles across both Warhammer:  Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40’000, I’ll have something to talk about in that realm in another post, so this week will be double posts.

This post is going to be a base post for my main project that I’m working on and then I’ll be building off showing my progress in future posts and hopefully not get caught up in painting and forgetting to take pictures of different stages.

So first off a Heldrake’s eye view of my Khorne Daemonkin collection so far…

Next up is the troops! So troop list so far is; two, ten units of Bloodletters, a (WIP) 7-man Bezerker unit which will max at fifteen and (WIP) Chaos Space Marine unit.

Bloodletter unit No.1:

Bloodletter in front has been converted using parts found in the bloodletter kit as the guitar is made up for the Iron icon turned upside down and the arms cut to fit in place.

Bloodletter unit No.2:

Bezerker Unit:

On-going (WIP) Chaos space marine/Chosen unit:

CSM no.1 is the regular chosen model from the dark vengeance box set and he is standing on a modified flame stand from a Bloodthirster kit.
CSM no.2 has no mods just a pretty paint job.

Next up is the big baddies.
First off the big daemon himself, Skarbrand!

Absolute awesomely sculpted model, had so much fun painting it but as I was taking pictures I spotted some stuff that need to be fixed that you can probably spot. With the wings I went for a flesh tone instead of the black in the GW pictures.

Daemon Prince of Khorne:

Daemon princes are always a fun model to make and paint didn’t do any conversions just messed around with different heads and armour pieces and opted for the lovely wings of course along with the most khone-y head plus went for the one shoulder pad for the whole gladiator look. This model still needs a bit of work I’d say, just a few highlights and extra definitions.
 Other units;
The Funwagon! (Skull Cannon)

So I messed around with the crew on this one which might make it more difficult to transport but the kept falling off anyway. So one bloodletter is straddling the cannon cause if anything in the 40k universe can be funny it would be lesser daemons and goblins, and the other guy is just hanging off the back. This model was really fun to paint especially the skull cannon and again needs some highlights on the armour.

Next… a Helbrute.

This guy was from the Dark Vengeance box set and when it was opened this guy was a bit distorted and his legs were bent out of shape so they were eventually fixed and during the painting of this mini my Reikland Fleshshade was all messed up and when I put it on it left this effect of regular fleshshade and the white bits all over which I like and adds to the demonic grotesquery of the hell brute.

Finally, the last part to the ‘Tide’ is some lovely possessed in which I used once in battle.

These guys were very fun to make and paint as you get tons of options to mess with and the different parts to paint, it’s real fun, pity they’re only meh in battle.

So this is my Daemontide so far.. next addition to the Daemontide will be a SOUL GRINDER! Stay tuned this weekend for a recent battle report Daemontide vs Tyranids! And early next week for a breakdown of the Soul Grinder’s development.

Blood for the Blood God! And Skulls for the Skull Throne!

First Blog Post, Ahoy!

What’s this blog about?

          The main focus of this blog is to show and talk about miniature painting like; Warhammer 40’000, Warhammer: Age of Sigmar and minis from board games. I will also be doing conversions like my pride and joy pictured below this paragraph.

          As well as miniature painting, I will hopefully sometime in the very near future, will be writing short stories of the sci-fi and fantasy genres. I will also be aspiring towards starting a web-comic and/or start producing various one off comic stories the length of regular trade comic books, and hopefully produce physical copies down the line… in my dreams really.

          And they will be the main foci of my blog and the minor foci that sometimes will become prominent in the content that flows through the blog and the social medias (Facebook, Instagram) will be a weekly post where I’ll talk about so random stuff like exciting announcements or just random thoughts, Some talk about video games, and maybe some D.I.Y projects.
