Heroquest - Heroes

As with all the others for this project the Heroes all had a painting time limit of just 20mins each to stop myself going crazy.

The sculpts are really bad and the paint job isn't much better but at least they are done. Can't have unpainted Heroes running around eh?

Heroquest - Undead Pt.1

So I have to admit I'm rather late to the HQ bandwagon I'm afraid, never played or owned it as a wee one. 

A few months ago my Wife brought me home a gift she found in her friends shed, 2 tool boxes of random crap minis (Warhammer Quest plastics & the first plastic LotR Orcs), a 1994 paint set & a complete(ish) copy untouched copy of Heroquest.


I'm hooked!

After taking it down to my local club and having a few games I managed to get a group together for some semi-reg games in and of top of that I picked up the HQ expansion Return of the Witch King for a rather nice price (Minus the Box which is sad). 

Anyway as we all know I hate playing with unpainted minis..

So I needed to get everything painted and as quickly as possible. So starting with the Undead I managed to find a way to get each one finished from start to end in 20mins.

WEG Star Wars - Battle Report ''Storming the Rebel Base''

Storm the Rebel Base

The skies darken over ZAN IV as the Imperial Dropships break the atmosphere above. 

First to set foot with the Vanguard was General Veers and the 2 notorious Bounty Hunters Boba Fett & Big Bertha. 

Today will see much bloodshed...

So last night we played the 2nd battle in the ongoing Star Wars campaign set on ZAN IV.

The first Battle ''Bounty Hunting'' (Broken into 2 parts) can be viewed HERE and HERE.

The Empire has found Han Solo hiding out on a Rebel Training Base on ZAN IV and after a failed Bounty Hunting mission by Boba Fetthas descided to bring in the full force of the Empire to both wipe out the Base and bring Commander Solo in, dead or alive it matters not.

Fimir Project Reboot Pt.5 Malalite Demon-Hag WIP

So with the Reboot still going strong and all the repaints/tidying up complete it was time to expand my collect. 

Putting up a trade post on the Oldhammer Trading Group (Which is a part of a series of groups I'm a admin for) I was able to get one of the few Fimir's missing from my collection..

Terminator Genisys - The Miniatures Game Review

In the ravaged wasteland left after the nuclear holocaust of Judgement Day, the Human Resistance, led by the legendary John Connor, is locked in a desperate conflict against Skynet’s pitiless machines.

Who will ultimately survive in The War Against the Machines?

Fimir Project Reboot Pt.4 Warlord & Fianna Fimm

So the Fimir tidying up has all but finished but have no fear I've been painting up the unpainted ones instead as well as sorting out movement trays.

I've also almost finish my first complete unit bar 2..

Warbases Movement Trays Review

The other day I asked the Oldhammer Community about Warbases Movement Trays to see if anyone had used them or indeed rated them.

After a couple of replies I took the punt and ordered some, now I'll admit as I wasn't expecting much as they are after all cheap MDF.. So was I happy with my order?

Short answer is No.

Fimir Project Reboot Pt.3 - Hell Worm & Handlers

The reboot is going rather well and I'm finding myself getting more and more happy with the results and finding the effort to improve/change/replace is not as bad as I first thought.

Sure there still is alot of damage to certain figures and some are painted rather careless (Tends to be those done last as I was getting bored and fed up) but far from the mental obstacle I had in my mind.

I was working my way though the Fimm and Fianna Fimm but stopped to finish of my Hell Worm and Crew/Handlers and 2 hours later it's now up to speed and in my mind how I wanted it too look.

Fimir Project Reboot Pt.2 - Fimm repaints/tidy ups

Progress has well and truly started on the Fimir make over with half of the big Fimm unit getting a tidy up a few repaints and improved basing.

It's funny what a fresh eye can do to a old paint job and since I wasn't burnt out on brown I was able to go back and do all those fiddly jobs like final shading and tidying up.

Fimir Project Reboot Pt.1

Over 2 years ago now was the last time I took paint to brush for my Fimir army, I fell out of love for the ''Rape Demons'' I'm afraid. 

Maybe it was painting layer after layer of brown or lack of focus on the direction taken. A large part was dew to the limited options both figure wise and army list (I was at that point still playing current WhFB and was using WoC list to count them as).

While Oakbound Minis came along way to counter act the lack of figures with their wonderful Marsh Demon range for The Woods RPG and Geoff also sent me a free set of them too boot. But my desire for the rappy ones soon slowed down... 

Until now, It's reboot time!

WEG - Star Wars: Denizen Minitures

The Denizen Fantasy and Sci-Fi figures date from around the mid 1980's. The company is still in business and these figures are still available. Chub Pearson owns the company and sculpted nearly all of the figures.

As with other companies of their time they are scaled 25mm, but not quite 25mm truescale as there heads tend to be on tad large size.

Anyway for my ongoing Star Wars project I wanted some armoured elite quick response/bodyguard Rebels. Now as WEG never made anything I felt suitable I had to look elsewhere.

25mm Sci-Fi (Let alone Truescale) is rather hard to come by these days as most companies favour 28mm-32mm Heroic made popular by Citadel/GW.

Anyway to cut a long story short I bought some of these:

WEG Star Wars - Battle Report ''Bounty Hunting'' Pt.2 The Pew Pewing!

Bounty Hunting

So boys and girls (At the very least boys with moobs) it's time for a Battle Report from you favourite Chico.. 

No! Not him Me!


Anyway Pt.1 detailing the forces used can be read HERE

Darth Vader: There will be a substantial reward for the one who finds the Millennium Falcon. You are free to use any methods necessary but I want them alive - no disintegrations! 

Boba Fett: As you wish. 

This is a non-cannon game based on a possible alternative story arc. Boba has tracked Solo down to a backwater planet of  ZAN IV. 

ZAN IV has a small Rebel base used as a training grounds for new and rather green Rebels and as such is rather limited in it resources and Blasters. Boba is also only leading a scouting force of Stormtroopers and as such are also lightly equipped

Roy Fett leading The Empire

WEG Star Wars - Battle Report ''Bounty Hunting'' pt.1 The Forces

So tonight at my local gaming club (Watford Wargaming Federation) I'm getting to play a game of SWMB2 for the first time and with another willing victim.. er opponent.

Now as its our first time (Cue candles and mood lighting) we are keeping it small and somewhat easy as I'm also providing both sides and I hate playing with unpainted toys I just went with what I had all ready painted and rushed a couple more Rebels though to even the odds.

WEG Star Wars - Dark Jedi WIP

Still taking a little break from SAGA painting but didn't feel like going outside to spray some more WEG Star Wars (I live in a top flat and have to spray need a pavement, which is not ideal).

Anyway a nice package turned up from Ebay today while I was at the Dr's about my on going eye problems containing a few WEG minis and the WEG Imperial Entanglements rulebook (Yay for dirty cheap buy too).

I've always found the 2 Sith rule restrictive in SW cannon, but reading into the EU (Expanded Universe) I found 3 temping get out clauses (There are more but I liked these options).

1: Use Darth Maul and his brother Savage Opress (A Nightbrother who became a Sith Lord). Maul survived being sliced into 2 and carried on despite Darth Sidous choosing a new apprentice.

2: Run with a pair of Dark Force or rival Sith users outside of the Bane's ''Lords of the Sith''

3: Dark Jedi, Jedi turned to the Darkside for power and glory.
