And so it began...

My intention for this blog is for it to be a record of my gaming experiences, trials, tribulations and painting and modelling efforts.

Dreadball - Corporation team

New game has been released called Dreadball (from Mantic) some of you out there may have heard of it. Sort of a science-fiction american football game. I didn't get the full game but picked up a couple of teams to play against my regular gaming mate who brought the game on the Kickstarter. We had our first game last weekend and it played really well so looking forward to the next one.
First impressions of the figure were smaller than I imagined and very disappointed by the amount of flashing on them, it was a devil of a job to clean them up and now that I have painted them I have noticed quite a few spots I missed :-(.
Anyway here is the Coporation team ready to go. The Corporation are essentially the human team.
The Corporation

'Lucky' Logan (MVP) flanked by two Guards (who just bash people)

The MVP known simply as 'The Enforcer'

Strikers - they do all the scoring

Corporation 'Jacks' - they are all round players
My next team that I have to do are called 'The Marauders' who are the Orc and Goblin sect. Sigh... more flashing to clean up....

Saga - Anglo Danes

It has been a while but finally pretty much finished my Anglo Danes for Saga. It is a 5 point warband which seems to be a nice size for a good game. I probably will add one more unit of 8 warriors at some point. To complete them I will add some snow (it is England after all) but as I will mass produce a batch will do it when I complete my Vikings. I probably also need to strap shields to the backs of my warlord and Dane axes as they look abit light on armour (and the Little Big Men shield transfers are very cool).

Levy bowmen

Warlord plus 4 hearthguard

A unit of Dane axes

Unit of warriors

More hearth guard
So I need to get onto my Vikings which will mean painting up my warlord and 4 berserkers. I can then use my Anglo Danes (minus the Warlord and Dane Axes) as Vikings as they all dress pretty much the same.
