Beton - My Goliath Gang

I normally struggle with inventing colour schemes. But somehow those hazard stripes went themselves on the test model and then Ive got whole gang painted )sans little details) in no time. Seriously fastest painted Necro gang in my Necro painting career (And Ive got 5 finished and many more in different state of wip)

Mr Beton - Leader

Pustak - Deadliest champion

Azbest - Test game deadliest champion that fail to do anything in campaign :)

Słup Strop and Spaw
Vanilla gangers

Gruszka - grenadier and Nit - new adition - rivet cannon counts as boltgun

and Żelbet - juve
I am having great fun with these guys and more important i had fun painting them.

Firefly Adventures models scale comparison

Ive recently bought boardgame Firefly Adventures. To be honest I bought it for the miniatures of Serenity crew in the models and cool paper boxes/terrain included (I am yet to try the game itself but I wont be sad if it wont take my by a storm). I like the miniatures alot but I havent seen any scale comparison in the net with actual 28mm miniatures.
So here it is :P
Miniatures are in 30mm scale and very well proportioned. That will make them looks slim near most of 28mm miniatures. But the size is quite Ok. Large characters are larger than GW human, smaller are smaller or similar size.

The box provides 5 characters (Mal, Zoe, Wash, Jayne and Kayle) in 2 poses - Casual and heroic (in action). One minus is that heroic weapon are on the smallish side. But they are not unusable

With miniatures for scale

As you can see old space marine is no match at all but new Primaris fits perfectly well!
And lets be honest qith ourselves.. do anybody interested in firefly miniatures would want them at the same table with those poor misshapen old marines in the AP (after primaris) age ? :)

Apart from the crew box comes with very cool generic bruisers and cowboys.

Very cool models for random thugs and each one is unique, they come with some size variation too.

Overall its very good set and I will be getting model expansions to fill out my crew for sure.

If you consider that the gamebox comes with instant skirmish terrain this is real wonderful buy for any fan of Firefly and 28mm skirmish gaming!
Purging of some God Emperor forsake shanty town.. marines and cultist for scale..

Story with a happy end

Almost a year later I finished last model for my LAF LA league Inquisition team

Brother Dionisus an Acolyte of Inquisitor Awunberg

As I finished some little sheeps lately and they were  standing idly around brother Dionisos decided to practice his sermons on them

But the sheeps didnt listened to Dionisos.. they laughed behind his back .. because.. they promised their souls to a Dark mistress Slaanesh..

Thats why Inquisitor Awunberg had to assemble his task force.. 

In his wisdom Awunberg decided to suplement his retinue by a force of armored giants ofcrusading Adeptus Astartes.. Black Templars answered the call with grim determination to do their duty!

New Necromunda scale answers

I managed to find those three photos flying around and I thought I will share.
They nicely show question about the scale of the models and Bulkheads which seam to be some controversy.

Those are genuinely great models both Eschers and Goliaths but they are larger that original. Which is IMHO to be expected really... How new SM compare to SM from 20 years ago.. Those guys are just tinny.

New bulkheads are just short (half a mm) of being exact half of Sector Mechanicus Shadow War Armageddon level. 

Another update

Halloween Gaming again

I couldn't let my pumpkin terrain go to waste sooo..
Again Halloween gaming this year.
First: X wing :)

Spreading forces against two most dangerous ship in the game is mistake, especially for estranged Imperials :P

Next day: Dragon rampant - My fantasy Vikings took again of Kadziks vile Arabs..
In the Ringbearer scenerio (My mage Loki was carrying the ring and almost killed by Naffatun unit but he survived resurrected two Vikings with his unholy pumpkin ring power and sow mischief and Befuddlement all around. And thanks tl his pumpkin ring power my Vikings smashed Al-Kadziki minions not loosing one unit :O

AEwulf and his hirdsmen finish vile Al-Kadziki (again - that bastards has 9 lives I swear!)

Tie Defender of the First Order

Lately most of my gaming was X-wing miniatures game. Great little game that I actually liked to play in tournaments (and I was keeping distance from such way of playing games for many years as I believe it does not suit well most of the miniature games - especially ones I used to play)
But X-Wing is different, demanding, close and more similar to card game in the way your brains operate than normal tabletop wargame. It wont be everyone cup of tea but its worth giving a try...
Especially those painting-challanged as the miniatures tor X-Wing are pre paints (and very good pre paints they are)

Anyway back to topic. Here is my first attempt into repainting X-wing miniatures as sombody used to painting will want to put a mark on any miniatures he use :P
I recently fly squadron of two new order Ties (They are in a scheme from the new movie so have reversed colours) and my favorite Imperial ship Tie Defender - which comes in either dark grey or red paint schemes. I wanted to unite squadron and differentiate Defenders (as I like to flow them in Three Deffender squadron which makes for two greys and one red ships)

This was not very easy as the ship is basically made of almost flat panels separated by deep but small beams that ought to be black.. White was easy as I spraypainted panels white and gave some highlights in more white. But the beams were pain in the ass (to be honest they should be retouched in few places but Its playable for now). I am ok with how it went although next time some cooler ship with easier details.

He fits very good with First Order Ties IMHO

Blood Bowl!

My  late discovery (well not so late perhaps as I was given free steam code for BB computer game and love it from here but late tablewise) and love.

Blood Bowl the game.. 2016 edition (but its almost perfect port of previous Living rulebook rules - ie 3rd edition Blood Bowl game with refinements that brought it almost to perfection.
But what Blood Bowl lacked in was miniatures.. Lets be honest old BB models have some charm but are not too atractibve by modern standard of miniature gaming.. Ohh how fat with great models we had grown :)
But 2016 re edition set comes with two insanely good teams - Human (Human- most boring team with unimaginative models in existence is very cool now and usable in many conversions in Inquisimunda :O and perfect Orcs! And they are in glorious plastic.. Only minor gripe I have with them is bad position composition of the box team - to play them at optimal build you need two team sets. Team consist of 11-16 models so you have 8 models that you can only use in conversion if you buy 2 sets for each team with humans and Orcs (6 linemen and 2 throwers both). That can be somehow remedied by conversion but is quite annoying never the less.. but thats GW evilness I guess (they are totally different and almost fancentric company since latest Warhammer community team restart after Kirbys departure from the company but still evil greedy corporation from hell).
Dwarf team soon followed the initial release (meeeeeh) but then after some time here they came.. My favorite SKAVEN!! Both in plastic and wit annoying lacks again but heeeeey thats why I hoard such bitsy box :P Lats  month another plastic team arrived - Goblins - but it have more issues.. complete lack of positional players - they were released by very uninspiring Forge World models only and not all of the needed set..

I was always moving BB buy in time despite securing plastic Rat Ogre for my then future Skaven team (Rat ogre is made by Forge World only and is again quite uninspiring) but lately my friend bought Box as impulse buy and we gave it a try.. What a bloody fun. I havent been really excited by miniature games in 20 years.. Real emotions real stress.. welcome to Blood Bowl ;P
I will do blog note with my team when I will finish them. But here are some photos of the half painted ratties in action

I lost my first Threematch cup to those pesky Orcs - Yellows Pruszków..

But my poor Szczurkan Kosaczew played underpointed (I did silly mistake and was short of a rerroll.. yea that the fault of it!!)

And I am thirsty for revenge!!
