The University of Athel Loren Crimson Tide! Blood Bowl time!

It's Blood Bowl season here at the Ordo Fanaticus and that means HOBBY EXCITEMENT!

I'm finally getting around to playing Blood Bowl after years and years of not touching the game and I'm finding I have forgotten far more than I ever learned... :(

That said I ordered a new team I'm going to be painting up very quickly!

Here are some pics!

I ordered the models from Black Scorpion Miniatures.


Entire team + additional models 


 2 Wardancers + Thrower with 2 Catchers and 6 Linemen


Side view of team.


Wiley Miniatures Treeman and Wardancer.
The Wardancer will be my Turn Counter.
I have a Wizard, an Apothecary and a Cheerleader along with a Dryad.(no real reason for her)


Painting updates to come!

Final Preparations for the Black Sheep Brawl IV and Display Board Fail

Hey everyone,

So Black Sheep Brawl is tomorrow and as a true wargamer I'm up late the night before putting the finishing touches on my army.

I started this week by making movement trays that were ...too big (sigh).
Here are the WIP's:






Once they were flocked I moved on to the display board:
Before:

After:


So after that FAIL, we go to old faithful!
Now to decide which staging to use?

1.

2.

3.

So with this decision pending, I will go to bed!

Tomorrow we engage in THE BLACK SHEEP BRAWL IV!

I will be drinking from my Black Sheep Brawl I mug all day.


Let's see if I can't get a matching 2015 one!

Glade Riders and Glade Guard WIP

As the Black Sheep Brawl draws closer, I have been working on assembling a few additional units to paint up and diversify my existing army.








I am hopeful that I will have time to get these done, and I am even more hopeful that I will be able to participate in the Black Sheep Brawl as I may have a conflict.

If not I will attempt to make more posts as we draw near.  Real life is keeping me very busy!

So many games, so little time.

Hey folks,

I've been terrible about blogging these past few months.  Mainly because I haven't made any real attempts to start any projects.  I've made half-assed attempts to build a unit here, paint a unit there, but nothing really substantial as far as a project.  Well that will be changing soon as I have decided to re-engage my hobby engine and start and finish the following projects:

1. 10 Glade Guard - paint/base (5 for one unit, 5 for another)
2. 8 Glade Riders - assemble/paint/base
3. Glade Lord on elven steed  - assemble/paint/base
4. 50 pts of Retribution of Scyrah - paint
5. 50 pts of Circle Orboros - paint
6. Conceptualize a 2,000 point Eldar or Eldar/Dark Eldar list
7. Buy/build/paint/base no.6
8. Build new movement trays and display board

So with that said we'll have some pics up soon of WIP.
Nothing spectacular but soon!
