You know what? I really am enjoying it. Its nice being able to just knock out models so quickly if needed. And sometimes it just nice to be able to make progress quickly. So I really have enjoyed using them.

So I got my first games of Warcry in tonight. Excuse the few bits of unpainted pieces as I just could not get it all done by this evening. First game I played Night Haunts vs my friends Iron Golems. He was defending 3 objectives and I was the attacker. I managed to with that game 6 to 4. The 2nd game I took the Golems and he played the Untamed Beasts and he had t kill my Leader in 4 turns. I was able to keep my leader safe (not a wound on him) and took that game as well. The game plays fast and deadly. The 4 decks making the scenario every game may be one of the best hooks in gaming I have ever seen (and I have read a lot of rules and played a lot of games). The game is pretty simple but there is a lot of tactics dealing with the different scenarios the decks create. Huge fan so far.

Here are a few pictures I took during our games.

Blimey Squall, you are smashing through the Warcry starter at an amazing rate. I like the choice of colours on your Iron Golem warband, looks really good. They are such good sculpts as well.

Glad to hear that you are enjoying the game as well, I have seen people both praising and complaining about its apparent simplicity.

Yeah, I was trying to get through as much of it as possible as we were having a demo day at my FLGS and I was trying to have multiple painted warbands and as much painted terrain as I could pull off. We had 9 or 10 people show and play so it was a pretty good day.

WIP of the untamed beasts. These are 90% done. Need to pick out a few details and finish the bases. Also need to go back and fill a couple white spots I always seem to leave with contrast paints.



Hobby progress will be slow as I will spend most of my free time moving my hobby room to the basement. Second kid will be arriving soon so hobby room will be the new nursery. Fortunately I have a fully finished basement so its not too much of a downgrade.

Congrats on kid 2 coming .

Basement hobby space is always good, until you mess up your leg or back and can’t navigate the steps (my current situation). Although it being downstairs means it’s even further out of sight, so need to clean it up because of company happen a less.

Great progress, I’m really liking your work with the contrast paints.

Sounds pretty useful. I am hoping to try them soon. Great work so far looking forward to seeing what else you paint.

Alright. Im back after close to a month hiatus. Got the hobby room moved into the basement and the nursery set up for kid 2. Still been playing some Warcry and enjoying it. Been playing a decent amount of Blood bowl lately which brings me to the point of this post. I recently finished up my Nurgle BB team The Glob Trotters. I also played up at the NOVA Open recently and will be posting about my experience there soon once I get all my pictures together. Anyways, on to the photos!









Will have my NOVA report and some other WIP teams up soon. Also, more Warcry sooner than later.

Thanks, Youwashock. I was pretty pleased with how they came out. I think they look better in person. I still don't have a great setup for pictures.

Next Ive been working on my Halfling team. This is the team I play as when Im teaching newer players. Everyone has more fun beating on the Halflings!

Without further ado, the first painted members of The Halfing Heroes!





Have some Treemen lined up as well since GW didn't make any with this release. Will post pics of the whole team when they are done. Second child is due tomorrow so can come any day so who knows when I will be able to post again but hopefully soon!

Halflings looking great . Do they come with the bandaged hand and face or is that your handiwork?

Not satisfied with painting short oddshaped humans that only want to eat you and your wife decided to scratchbuild another one . Congratulations on the impending lack of sleep and nonstop crying (yours as I’m sure the baby will be perfect ).

That's the plan so far, CB. Though maybe someday soon I will be foolish enough to try them at a tournament!!

Theo they come with the bandages on them. Im not much for greenstuff except to fill in gaps.

So been still working on BB teams but nothing really to show. I am starting a Warcry campaign tomorrow. This was decided Thursday morning so I had two days to get a warband ready. Now, most people would use that Iron Golem warband or something they already had done since there was only 2 days to get it done. I decided to do a flesheater courts warband. Now, I had about 1/2 of this one done. I had all the small guys painted but needed to both build and paint the three big guys. Well, Contrast to the rescue. SO the small guys were part of my Vampire Counts army from back in the day. The Crypt horrors were going to be but I never got around to them so I got to work yesterday morning between taking care of my toddler, newborn, and wife. Tonight at appx. 10pm they are done. Love contrast! Also took a picture of my campaign roster sheet... just cause.





I will post pics of the games tomorrow night. First game will be against The Unmade!!!
