SAGA: Viking Beserkers


While most of you enjoyed a good Ol' family Xmas I on the other hand spent it painting half naked hairy men.. Heh normally a service you'd have to pay for I'm sure.

Berserker slick in the blood of their foes
The figures are Blacktree Design which I picked up on their Black Friday sale, still waiting for half the order to be sent which is rather annoying to say the least.

2014 Round Up: Part 2


So part 2 of the 2014 round up then, I'm rather proud of my Hobby and always happy to show off to the internet and friends.

I'm just going to include some of my favourite projects rather then everything painted (Well over 400 figures).

6mm & 15mm:

This year I broke away from my standard 28mm gaming to try my hand at both 6mm & 15mm, both of which I'm rather addicted too now.

6mm wise I completed 2 Epic Armies (Genestealer Cult & Orks) & alot of scenery.

This year has had some rather rotten lows, being diagnosed with a condition that'll end up making me blind and my brother stealing my inheritance being two of the worst.

But feck that boys and girls there has been many a good thing too so lets list them shall we?

What? wait?

Yes I'm going to show off because for once despite a sitting in a cold flat with no working boiler I've managed alot this year.

Evil Space Dorfs - Painted Masters


Almost Xmas time eh? Full of joys and spirits? I wish that was the case in the Danks household but alas not too be as last night my Boiler went boom.. Looks like it won't be fixed to after the hoilday season to boot! So no hot water and heating! Bag Humbug!

Oh a plus note I've done the first bit of painting in a little while (Bad eyes strikes again) but I managed to paint up the Evil Dorf Masters! They look rather spanking too!

4 Masters all together

Chico's gone Mantic again: Sci Fi Crazy Box


Love them or hate them but one thing that can't be denied is Mantic know how to do a bargain and draw in the punters. 

Every year they do a ''Crazy Box'' in  2 flavours both Sci Fi & Standard for £25 which contains around £80 worth of toys. This year they also had 2 deals running 15% off and Free Shipping over £30.

So Ummm I couldn't say no, so along with some more Deadzone Terrain I got a box.

Outcast Greenskins: More Bastards!


Taking a week out from my massed SAGA whoring (Wait till you see my new Scenery for SAGA, think Stonehenge).

Now as readers of OoaB know I have a long ongoing Outcast/Chaos Greenskin force being painted up. My Force is going to break down into 3 Parts:

Chaos/Outcast Goblins W/ Randoms (Giant, Orc Warmacines, Orclings)
Khornate Half Orc Warband
Corrupted Hobgoblin Warband

Each of these 3 parts will join together for large games but each will have it's own theme and flavour.

Wargames Scenery: Gaming Mats


So if I'm honest my gaming table stalled, the reason was just how to go about making it. I'm not very DIY unless you mean Destroy It Yourself.

The main problem was what do I use.. do I run with a expensive Battleboard set (Games Workshop) or a home made textured board, maybe even a new rubber gaming mats (Mantic) or a classic flocked mat.

Then of course what colour as I base 40k/Sci-Fi 1 way and Fan/Historic another (Which still has exceptions to the rules..)

Right I think i have made my mind up.

SAGA: Battle Report - ''Challenge at Ameagon's Rock''


 Anglo-Danish Bacon Vs Welsh Sheep ''Enjoyers''

So today I had another great game of SAGA against my rival Lord Pat and his Welsh. Rolling up the scenario we got ''The Challenge''.

Works for me as I haven't played that one before.

Set up is simple with both Warlords starting with in S (4") of each other in the centre, this case right under the giant throbbing rock.. Yes I said rock :P

Warlords face off, while the Welsh advance

Chainsaw Warrior PC Game Review


''Zombies, chainsaws and a ticking clock dominate this remarkably faithful recreation of Games Workshops’ solo board game''


The game plays out very much like patience, but with zombies. You as the role of Chainsaw Warrior, are a retired Cyborg Veteran in 2032, called back into action for one last job. A shadowy being from another dimension has taken over a New York tenement block, and will drag the city screaming into some sort of central casting Hell if not stopped.
