Journey of the Maulers: A legendary pun

For quite some time I wasn't sure whether I should repaint this gentleman or not. This thrower was the first conversion for the Maulers and also the test mini for the colour scheme. I remember sacrificing the figure of a classic savage orc shaman on boar to get the hand that points away from him - a typical quarterback movement in American Football.

Journey of the Maulers: Forever Gabru

After I started to play my Wanderleague parallely to painting the remaining players, the presentation mode has also changed slightly. Besides the introduction of a new player I will also try to give some game summaries, give an update about the season and add some snapshots.

Journey of the Maulers - Gabru Kneebreaka

But first the next player: Gabru Kneebreaka is, as the name suggests, from the fanclub of da Kneebreakaz. The idea for it came before I even painted the fans. This Blitzer is a homage, a small thank you to all the faithful readers, who follow the project now already in the 15th article.

Of Kings, Knights and Halloween on the Black Seas

It is the Halloween weekend and I thought that I had seen a horror-scenario for Black Seas, but I am unable to find it. Anyhow, there is Dreadfleet, of which I used the battle mat from the boxed set already with Cruel Seas.

Dreadfleet

Dreadfleet was a bit of a surprise back in 2011, when it was released as a stand-alone boxed-set. The rumours lead many to believe, that we would see a re-release of 1993's Man-o-War.

Journey of the Maulers: Blackorcs

Blackorcs are always a tricky one for me, because according to the fluff they have noticeably darker skin than other orcs. For the fans I painted one by using the same colors as in the tutorial for ordinary orcs, but this was a very, very time-consuming method and I was looking for a recipe that would allow me to keep the comic-like look and still achieve a visually appealing result. Meanwhile I think I found my recipe for it, as I also found a good base color in the Vallejo Game Color range: Dark Green. Dark Green is a little brighter than the classic Dark Angels Green by Games Workshop and can be highlighted relatively well with Bonewhite or shaded with a black wash.

Warhammer Mainz: Shop Birthday and Everchosen

On September 14th the Warhammer store in Mainz celebrated its third birthday and held the Everchosen competition for it's customers in Mainz. The atmosphere was pretty good and besides the usual games there was also a delicious cake to enjoy. Visitors who were eager to buy had the opportunity to take part in a small raffle in which various goodies could be won.

The quality of the entries was quite good for my impression, which is why I was all the more surprised when the vote count finally chose my Blood Bowl team, the Skycastle Titans, as the winner.

Feldherr Inlay for Beastgrave

Just in time for Spiel in Essen the foam inlays by Feldherr are ready for the next season of Warhammer Underworlds Beastgrave.

I received the friendly package shortly after my review on the starterkit, and as I already have the starter boxes of the first two seasons upgraded with the foam inlays, I was looking forward to do so with Beastgrave as well.

HANS! Get the hand truck!

In May I participated in the latest "Stuffbox" from the Sweetwater Community, the one from TabletopWelt got lost by Hermes - great job guys! But a new box was packed and went on its way. And with an eye on the tracking I knew HANS! would arrive today. A brief ring on the door bell and a small lipped good morning by the postman confirmed that and the heavy load of the content.

Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave – The Grymwatch

The first of the warband supplements for Beastgrave, the third season of Warhammer Underworlds is a Flesh-Eater Court warband, the Grymwatch.

Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave - The Grymwatch Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave - The Grymwatch

The Grymwatch is an undead warband supplement for Warhammer Underworlds and costs 25.00 EUR. So these got a small price increase from the former 22.50 RRP price tag. There are 6 ghouls and a bat swarm in this warband, cross across two grey-green sprues, along with a card deck and assembly instructions. The former warbands were available as easy-to-build kits without the Underworlds content, the Grymwatch isn't offered in that way (yet).
