Frostgrave Ghost Archipelago – Tribals

After covering the Crewmen, the next Frostgrave Ghost Archipelago kit are the tribals we're going to cover. Besides the very obvious temperatures and climate as a difference, in Ghost Archipelago the crew follows a heritor instead of a wizard, and these tribals can be used either as allies or enemies of those treasure seekers.

The tribals are a generic plastic kit, catching the idea of tribes, native to the jungles of the Lost Isles and isolated from the known world. They are heavily influenced by different cultures from our world, like the Polynesian Samoans or Maori, with some North American and African influences as well.

Tutorial – Painting Bronze

In the German-speaking Facebook group for the Footsore products I was recently asked how I paint bronze. The answer is quite simple and is as so often: it depends. Depending on what you paint, there are different ways to paint bronze. In the following I will show you how I paint bronze parts on undead.

First of all, I didn't use a common metallic paint here, but mixed one. Why all this, when there are ready-made metallic paints? Well, metallic paints have a few annoying properties - they tend to pull skin quickly, or are too thick or too runny. They don't always cover well and are hard to control.

Necromunda – Bulkheads

While sorting through the miniatures and getting a feel for the volume, I realised that my actual problem aren't the miniatures (they are mostly 28mm, so that's not that tall, and I don't do mass combat armies) but the terrain. And after going through the boxes and opening up the 4th box (of a few more) with Necromunda Bulkheads in it, it dawned on me that I might went a bit overboard on them.

So my stock went above 200 of these, that's more than I need.

Blood Bowl – A new stadium for a new season

You may have seen the game reports on here by Dino, with his Maulers playing different teams, like the Skycastle Titans or Altdorf Avengers, and with the topic of battle reports, I want to be prepared as well to host some Blood Bowl matches.

Therefore I got myself the basic game materials from Blood Bowl season two, covering the new pitch, templates and dice.

Kick Off 2021

I gave the indication in the holiday wishes, that I'll do another Kick-Off this year.

A few (or a lot?) of the things that were planned for 2020 had to be put on hold and are still the goals for 2021 - which was primarely having a good time. But let's talk about this in the usual format, answering a few questions.

What was the biggest challenge of 2020?

Well, yeah, the plans for the last year had a full schedule of events along with weekend trips to a couple of cities, picking up on culture and some museums. That obviously didn't happen, turning the vision of 2020 from this:

Kick Off - 2020 Brunnenfest Oberursel Crisis 2019 - Tinsoldiers of Antwerp

Dino’s Annual Summary 2020

As regular visitors of the Chaosbunker will have noticed, there have been rather few articles from my hand lately, which is why it's time to approach the year 2021 with a little more consistency and regularity. For many it is certainly no surprise when I say that 2020 was rather mediocre, but let's take a look at it together...

This was 2020

Basically, the year didn't start out bad at all. I went into my ongoing projects with a lot of motivation, wanting to both start a new gang for Frostgrave and finish the one I'd already started.

December 2020 review

Busy month, for multiple reasons. I continued with sorting out my stock and sorting out. After going through my Blood Bowl collection, that is now pretty much complete, I went on with Necromunda (not the 2017 re-release, but the mid-90s variant). I did sheets for the multiple gangs, to get an overview on poses and doubles. Quite happy with the status. Will post a search and sale post in the new year.

Sisters of Battle – Order of the Sacred Rose

The Sisters of Battle have come together, and I store my projects while gathering them in these sorting boxes. But this isn't a good overview, so while sorting out and taking stock, I decided to set up sheets for my projects that I can manage in photoshop and see which units go together, even after a break or being distracted by some shiny new stuff.
