Dino(‘s) Crisis 2019

Two weeks ago, on November 9th and 10th to be exact, Crisis took place in Antwerp, hosted by the Tinsoldiers of Antwerp. Dennis had already visited Crisis many times and delivered a good coverage in Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of his article series. For me, on the other hand, it should be a premiere, both for the event and for the city. Therefore you'll only get a subjective view of the weekend from me.

I've been to Belgium before, but that was more than 20 years ago and back then it was a visit to the capital Brussels. We arrived one evening sooner in order to save ourselves as much stress as possible on the trip there, but also in order to take some impressions of the city with us. We also took part in a small tradition that I didn't know it was bound to happen until I was right in the middle of it.

Frostgrave: A Sword and Sorcery Adventure – Part 2

In the second part of my Sword and Sorcery tale, I've taken on the dwarf. Somehow the model just wanted to be painted and in my head the picture of a grumpy looking, but otherwise in a good mood dwarf emerged. The pose had something stealthy with the slightly bent posture, which is why I tried to use as natural colours as possible.

Crisis 2019 – Part III

Let's start with the last set of pictures in part III of the Crisis 2019 coverage.

Naval wargaming, even with the recent introduction of Cruel and Black Seas is still rare, the more I was happy to see this ancient table by the La ligue des Gentlemen Civilisateurs.

Crisis 2019 – Part II

Continuing the coverage on Crisis with another set of 50 pictures in part II.

The League of Augsburg showed The War of Three Kings on a proper teddy-bear gaming mat. I like the different heights, with hills and valleys, they included ins this battlefield.

Crisis 2019 – Part I

Not the usual first weekend in November, but the second was the date for Crisis this year, due to the holidays and a Halloween Party at the Waagnatie. So Crisis 2019 was held on the weekend of November 9th in Antwerp.

Clear blue sky over Flandern. My 7th Crisis and Dino's first one, so headed over to the show and were excited about this years tables, offers and novelties. We were there a bit early, so we got lucky in the parking lot and the queue.

Frostgrave: A Sword and Sorcery Adventure – Part 1

Rekamark was not a very impressive city, but anyone who wanted to go to Felstadt found themselves at one of the last halfway civilized outposts of mankind before entering the ruins of the cursed city.

   "Rekamark," Balthasar said to his apprentice Achibald, thoughtfully folding his arms.

   "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious...".

And with this little intro I would like to welcome you to the next ongoing project at the Chaosbunker. Okay, I know that there were already a few articles about Frostgrave and that I actually didn't want to start building a warband until 2020, but when I assembled and painted the first models, the enthusiasm got its grip on me. It just felt good to get back into a generic sword and sorcery fantasy setting and let my creativity run wild.

Crisis 2019 haul

Back from yet another successful show - CRISIS 2019! It was amazing short weekend in Antwerp, great company, enjoyed a lot of good chats. The show managed to withstand the troubles of Brexit, include lots of traders from both sides of the channel and a pretty filled Bring & Buy.

I'll cover the show itself in a couple of articles of their own, as usual and as in the past. But this one, is about my haul from the show.

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.
