And now for something different...Guild Ball

I recently picked up Guild Ball and a Butcher's team. They've all been built and primed, and I'm slowly moving forward with painting them. First up is the team mascot, the vicious pit bull Princess...

Henchman Hardcore Tournament, 1/29/16

I polished up my new Wyrd Games Henchman badge until it gleamed like the putrid green light emanating from Nythera and organized the very first tournament in my local meta. We played Henchman Hardcore Empire Games in Mesa, Arizona with 8 participants (including myself as a ringer):

Drugs and Bad Dreams

I finally finished assembly of all the Neverborn stuff I purchased last year so that I could start playing with the tiny Dreamer crew that I've own since before I played Malifaux. I always loved the Nightmare edition of Lord Chompy Bits, and I had the oppertunity to pick one up a couple of years back. It was a package deal with several other M1E models that included LCB, Dreamer, 3 Daydreams, 6 Alps, and Coppi.

After I started playing Leviticus I took a look at Dreamer's rules and found them interesting, but at that point buying Nightmares for him was next to impossible. Enter Black Friday 2015. I picked up Lelu and Lilitu and some Insidious Madness during the sales (having previously gotten my hands on Widow Weaver and several versions of Teddy). The sale of the LE models from Black Friday enabled me to pickup some non-nightmare models to use with Dreamer. I really wanted some Beckoners and I ended up buying Lynch, Beckoners, Illuminated, Graves, Tannen, and some Depleted. Funny how often you wind up playing a new master when purchasing models for a Master you already have. Wyrd certainly now how to package their stuff to encourage cross-master play.

Anyway, what follows is my next project. First the Dreamer stuff I purchased together. They came painted, and I'm not certain if I am going to repaint them or not (though I am leaning towards not). On to the pics!

Indiana Jones and The Ashen Core


Ashen Core has always reminded me of some horrible artifact that Indian Jones is trying to keep away from the Nazis, who inevitably have their faces melted off when the finally get it. That said, the model was a breeze to paint, though I broke the spindly little plastic forearm that holds the skull twice. I am a bit concerned that it isn't going to hold up well to the abuses of play. If it brakes again I'll just have to replace one of the arm bones with a brass rod.

Anyway, here are the pics...
