After a number of months not being home much and preparing to move house, its great to finally land in my new place and unpack my hobby stuff. As timing would have it, my brother has just released the second commercially available figure (as Krakon Games) he’s sculpted and so I made this the first miniature I painted.

With the promise of a new lease of life for Age of Sigmar (read: a points system) and combined with the glorious models that came with Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower, I have decided to try and kickstart a little “Tale of” amongst my local players to work up a combined effort to collect and play AOS again.
This overly exciting post is to announce said project and show the first model I intend to build for it. This is the Tzeentch Sorceror, who has rules for both AOS and WHQ.
Last Autumn, Curtis Fell of Ramshackle Games notoriety, proposed a fun idea to the Oldhammer group of getting together to sculpt some miniatures as a group project. 7 sculptors of varying experience all decided to take part and contribute one (or two) models for the project, culminating in their completion over the festive period. What now? I posed to the group. Shall we actually push these into production?
Following on from the work in progress post I have been patiently working away on painting and assembling my hunters of the wild unit.
With the bases of main dryad figures being painted in separate pieces, I stuck the dryads to corks with PVA so they were easier to handle. These first two are painted as some form of vine, or strangling creeper plants. These are actually my favourite two poses it turns out as I worked on the group. The owl is from the Dryad kit, the other one I have (which I have put on my Greenwarden) is a much nicer model.
The newly-formed Hysterical Games recently ran a Kickstarter to fund their new wargame, Panzerfäuste: Mechanised Warfare. I was lucky enough to buy some items early for review, all of a Gnomish nature.
What really drew me in were the Gnome terrain pieces as they are suitable for all sorts of games, since Panzerfäuste is a 28mm wargame game. That review will follow later.
It’s a good time for Halflings. This week alone, 3 new ranges have exploded onto social media: Macrocosm, Westfalia and Effin Cool Minis.
Adding to existing ranges, such as the classic Dogs of War: Fighting Cocks (sadly out of production, but available through trading sites), has never been easier.
Macrocosm has newly launched Shortwars Halflings.
