I'm Ba-aack!

Well, did you miss me? No, I didn't think so ;)

So, for the last week I've been going through a period of painting apathy, I just haven't wanted to pick up a brush at all, so no progress on anything this past week, until yesterday when I decided to get the bases for the 1st 3 Devourers for Richard sorted out, and I'm pleased to say that they're almost ready for flocking, so hopefully by the end of the day I should have the models stuck onto them.

As for my Blood Bowl stuff, I've kinda lost interest a little, I'm so close to finishing them though that I should get my arse in gear & do it, but I have a tendency to do this every now & again, whenever I get near completing a project I just loose interest & I start looking for the next thing to start on.

This time round I got caught up in terrain fever after seeing this post on a Infinity fansite, it's in Spanish, but with a little help from Altavista Babelfish I've figured out most of the bits that I couldn't get just from looking at the pictures.

And then, just when I thought the terrain fever had passed, I see a link to a report from the Tactica show in Hamburg this weekend. Here's the link, the Mordheim board has really got me going as I've been thinking about running a Mordheim campaign for ages now & it's given me ideas for scenery like you wouldn't believe.

Anyway, back to the painting news. Before the apathy hit I'd managed to paint my head coach, one of my assistant coached & 2 of the team-specific markers I want to use, they just need varnishing, (after I've gone over the assistant coaches feet where I've got a little careless painting the base), to be completed & on the list, whether I'll get that done today or not I don't know, but I wouldn't be holding my breath if I were you as I'm focusing on the Devourers right now.

So that's all for now, hopefully I'll be back next week with news of actual progress on the painting front, but until then TTFN.

So, I kinda skipped a week there, wasn't intentional, but finishing the 10 zombie repaints took a little longer than I'd anticipated.

Anyway, they're all done now & you can check them out in they're new Displaced Miniatures Gallery.

The Mousillon Bodysnatchers had their first game last Tuesday & as with any BB team I've fielded they managed to loose their opening game, this was partly down to the Harbinger of Nurgle, (also known as Steve), distracting me by coughing his lurgie over every square inch of the playing surface, minis & indeed me, he also cheated for the first few turns as he conveniently "forgot" that the pictures on he dice represented 1's & not 6's as he'd been moral victory to me then :0), in the end though my dice rolls let me down when it came to scoring chances, though not, I'm pleased to say when it came to beating up on Steve's team, I actually won the beat down 5-3 which was nice.

I also made a couple of tactical mistakes...namely setting up an offence when I was defending & then setting up a defence when I actually had the ball. Still, you live & learn, next time it'll be different (probably 'cause I'll end up against Ian & get completely dismantled...but it will be different :0)

Anyway, only the 1 mini in the WiP pic tonight, Head coach of the Mousillon Bodysnatchers Atticus Van Garrett:

New Tally:
