Saga Night at the club

It does not normally occur like this but everyone at the club decided to play Saga. Out came the 6 point warbands 2 X Viking, 2 X Anglo Saxon, an Irish, a Welsh and a Scots force.

We mixed it up a little and rolled each turn for initiative and this seemed to throw enough spanners in the works to make it harder for the Old Guard to trounce the Young Guard. Woops different game.

My lads (Anglo Saxons) about to be clobbered by two armies of Vikings

Contemplation hmmm since when do Vikings contemplate much other than..........the usual pillaging etc

Old Guard guiding the Young in appropriate use of the Battle Board

Using typical Viking finesse...."see this lot, yep, move 'em all forward like this.." 

'tother Vikings on the left flank with obligatory glass hammer. True to their usual efforts, they made short work of one of my units but disappeared in a puff of combat dice.

One of the other games Irish Wolfhounds after some Scots spear chuckers.

The middle game with some nicely painted minis all around.

Near the end for me at this stage.

Final combat with both Warlords taking each others heads off leaving..................

The other Warlord victorious in our three way battle.

Games night last Tuesday

Just a quick update on club happenings.
X-Wing game with new BIG TOY. It took us ages to shoot it down, but with one Imperial fighter left we reduced the transport cruiser to a ruin hulk drifting through space, that will teach the Rebel Scum not to mess with the Empire.

Other games were Pathfinder RPG with around 5 gamers + GM

A nice Necron v Space Wolf battle at around 1200 points. Great paint jobs. Which I can't display as I stupidly took awful photos of.

A nice Saga game of foot Welsh v Bretons/Normans

Rebel Scum with Big Toy

The short lived life of an X-wing rookie

B-Wing Survived well considering

Unlike Vader who did a boot leg reverse in front of the Big Toy and was promptly run over in a shower of Tie Fighter bits

The final shot as Big Toy is left drifting in space as a hulk

Normans about to launch the attack

Foot based Welsh army that has convinced the gamer that a few mounted warriors might just be worth it

Senlac Hill woops wrong battle

I think the game came down to a narrow win to the Normans as the Welsh Warlord was eliminated

Some more painted minis Gladiators

I whipped these up a few weeks back and was quite happy with the super fast paint job. It is amazing how when you look at them they seem fine and yet when the camera does its work you appreciate that the quick job was actually a bad job, oh well I'm not selling them just shoving 'em on the shelf for use later on.....
Happy with these

Less Happy

Ouch must have really not been looking at these when I use the tooth brush to paint them

Some of the RPG minis I've painted this year

Last years painting challenge I entered made me realise how much I enjoy it. Though I game now more than ever before I still probably prefer to paint than game. Yet at times like most it can be a struggle to get both time and motivation to paint. After picking up both the Reaper Kickstarters I thought it about time to paint some of the minis after all it is not like I have a lifetimes supply of lead and plastic out the back waiting for a bit of love, cough , cough. So over the next blog or two will be some of the odd minis I have painted just because.

Reaper bones wolf, GW Chaos Ogre, Mike Broadbent Satyr?

Ogre Close up

Malifaux bear thing, now this will make the best werebear in an upcoming RPG I am gamesmastering.
