Staring into the Abyss – Part 1 : Abyss Warband Set box opening and review

As part of the Your Club, Your Story initiative with Mantic Games, I’ve been carefully taking pictures of everything I’ve been doing! I’ve still managed to miss a few shots, but hopefully this remains a useful reference for everything in the Abyssal Warband Set box. Its a bit oldskool doing this as a blog post rather than a video, I hope you’ll bear with me.


Black Tree Design review – Wraiths and Dwarves

I took advantage of a recent sale over at Black Tree Design and bought a selection of Dwarves, Undead and feudal humans. There was a small delay in the order due to the humans being out of stock, but after speaking to them on Facebook, they were happy to switch the product and get the order out to me. They even chucked in an extra blister for the delay!


Kings of War : Herd progress, Avatar of the Father

So at the start of the year I blogged about starting a herd army for Kings of War.  I mentioned that I had plans for an Avatar of the Father model, using an unreleased model from Mierce Minatures, Sia.  Well after asking nicely, I finally received the model recently and got to work on building and painting it.  This post hopefully will review the model and show you how I’ve got it battle ready.



What’s in the box? Kings of War Forces of Nature starter army

I recently received my Forces of Nature starter army as part of the Kings of War kickstarter.  When it turned up and I started looking through it, it occurred to me that I hadn’t seen much in the way of pictures of the contents anywhere so I thought I’d take some picture and do some quick blue-tac assemblies of what things looked like.  The mat I’ve used it on the 1cm square side up so that’ll give you additional idea of sizes.


Panzerfäuste Gnome Voltigeur Section Review

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.


Space Raiders Kickstarter

Perhaps the most exciting Oldhammer project this year was the selection of classic-inspired sculpts put together by Diego Serrate in his Space Raiders (Spider Riders) Kickstarter.

Diego created some classic archetypes that we of the greyer breed treasure, from Orcs to Fishmen to Minotaurs, all in a Space Punk setting and produced in metal.

I didn’t want to miss out, so saved some budget to get in on the project. This week, the package arrived. Here are the goodies as I take them out of their bags:
