Blood Bowl (VI) - A load of balls!

Still not really on with any significant painting, but to keep my hand in, I have completed this small project for Blood Bowl. Having collected various balls from earlier and current editions, I decided to paint up one of each variety, not that we tend to use the special ball rules(their is enough going on in blood bowl that you don't need to complicate matters further!),  however it's still nice to have the option should we ever feel the need to add another layer of craziness:

and all together:

Hopefully the urge to paint will be back now the heat has gone.

An Epic Tale (VI) - A few more reinforcements

Another short post primarily due to me having been distracted with the World Cup and it being far too hot to sit inside and paint.

My mate very kindly gave me 3 old GW Imperial Bombards; which after stripping them, I quickly painted up to add to my already decent size Imperial Guard army. As I didn't have any bombards this is a useful addition to my choice of forces:

And mustered together with the rest of my IG artillery:

Hopefully back to longer/more regular posts once the heat abates, til then you'll find me frying in the Costa del Backgarden!!

Lords & Lands - Scenario & Terrain Generator

Just a quick post with an update to the Lords & Lands page, Craig has sent me a Scenario/Terrain Generator which I have uploaded to both the Lords & Lands Page and the Wargaming Resources page, plus for ease I have also linked it here:

Blood Bowl (V) - The Halflings (and some other bits)

I have wanted a full Halfling team for literally decades, but one thing or another always stopped me getting one. Last year GW re-released all their classic 3rd edition Blood Bowl teams so I took the opportunity to bag me a bunch of halflings.

I did a few arm changes here and there and the addition of a couple of spikes ensured no two looked the same, and I added an old 2nd edition Halfling into the team to make up the numbers.

Onto the mini's, here's the starting 11:

(The Treeman is from Willy Miniatures)

and the obligatory team shot(s):

The ever ready and always required substitutes:

An as yet un-fielded Star Player(this is also from Willy miniatures and a bit too big in my opinion hence he's on a slimmer base)

No Halfling team is complete without a Masterchef, and as I like having a some sideline staff, I added a manager(which I think is from Impact miniatures)

I made the table of food and table from some Green Stuff and an MDF base, and I have to admit being quite pleased with result, especially as I'm not one for messing around with modelling putty that much

The two Cheerleaders are old 2nd edition Halfling linemen with added Green stuff boobs, pom-poms and long hair(not visible in this pic) which I thought I'd have a go at seeing how the chefs table turned out so well

Turn markers etc, made form old 2nd edition linemen and some food I got from Alternative Armies 28mm range

I saw this on E-bay and couldn't resist adding it to the team, although tis totally pointless:

And as I was on with counters I did these for my Lizardmen team:

These for my Orc team;

And these for my Human team:

Finally I did a few of the dozens of balls I have collected over the years:

The recent good weather has stopped almost all hobby activities, but hopefully I will finish off some more 15mm fantasy shortly and then onto my next Blood Bowl team.

Gaslands (7) The War Rig and the last of the vehicles

Proving that I can actually finish a project, here are the last of the vehicles that I've converted/painted for Gaslands. I could keep doing these as they are quick, easy and fun, but just how many vehicles do I need?

On to the vehicles, first up the last two regular vehicles, starting with this Pontiac to which I've added a driver(not that you can see him):

And this truck which I left fairly empty as I reckon rules for pedestrians will be in the expansion and I plan on sticking a few in here eventually:

I also finished the final 6 bikers:

Making a nice gang of 10 in total:

Finally the War Rig which isn't as good as I'd hoped but still its fairly big and impressive looking compared to the regular vehicles:

And I did put some crew in the War Rig which you can just about make out on close inspection:

And a quick pic of the whole lot:

Oh and I did go back to that old minehead buildings (see Gaslands Part 5) and added the requisite rust n dust:

That's it for Gaslands for now, probably back to some 15mm fantasy stuff or those pesky Blood Bowl Halflings next.
