Well the holidays are over now so no excuse to let the old blog slip! I hope you all had a fantastic time. I had a pretty quiet and lazy Christmas, but in no way was that a bad thing. I enjoyed it muchly.
With the new year came new opportunities for me starting with the chance of a new job. It not finalised just yet but when it’s set in stone I’ll let you folks know what it is. I will say however that it could be pretty cool.
I’m a few models away from completing my Raptors army, I shall be posting more photos of them very soon.
After these I need to paint some Ork models up for a huge Apocalypse game we have planned at the Game Shop that will be just Ork-on-Ork violence, funnily enough called Orkpocalypse. If we can make it work its going to be one hell of an event. Expect some fantastic photos from that.
Also in February I’ll be starting my Blood Bowl league which will hopefully last throughout the year as well as the odd one-off weekend tournament. I’ve actually just got back from the Game Shop where I had my first game in quite a while (table top wise). I used an Ogre team which was great fun and was so close to losing the game to an Undead team until I managed to get one of the Ogres to throw his Snotling team-mate, who was holding the ball, down the pitch who then went on to score a touchdown! It reminded me why I love the game so much.
I will now leave you with a few photos to round off this post.
A while ago Forge World released the TAUROS which is a lovely model and a really cool idea/addition for the Imperial Guard army. The only problems are I don’t really like using FW resin and its £30, not a price I can really justify. About a month ago on our gaming clubs Facebook page my friend bought these to my attention. Now, £6 I really can justify and with a little conversion work I think I’ve achieved a decent alternative. I have to admit however that working out which parts were best used to make the Heavy Flamer turret took quite a while. I may get some more of these in the future.
My first Ork Biker for Orkpocalypse. I really love these models, they were design to look cooler than the Fonz jumping 2 sharks and an iceberg.
That’s all for now, friends. Check back in a couple of days for some more pics and waffling.
