Gears of War mini's from FFG.
First few ships painted up for Dreadfleet, working on the rest and looking forward to playing.
New Trygon, April 7/10
Some of my old favorite Empire models, no new rules for the War wagon though. :(
Updated Jan.18/11 : Well we've started 2011 already and so far I think it will an interesting year. Gaming wise there are lots of new products coming out and
some that have perished, like Rackham and sounds like Ellisis a company trying to meld miniature gaming with electronics is also folding.
But GW is going strong, FFG is delivering lots of new stuff, Z-Man contiunues to produce game after game and the Z-Force program
seems to be working well and providing me with some extra gaming products for running some demo's for some really great releases. I
look forward to lots of miniature games myself and want to get Man O' War back to the table as well as some other older titles. I still
run GW events at the Sentry Box and plan to run a large tournament in April or May. Painting wise I need to motivate myself more but
it's something I can pick up and do anytime.
Updated April 7/11 : What can you say about some of the new releases from GW other then wow especially the Sphinx for the Tomb Kings. I have left
that army buried in it's case for years, haven't even tried it with the latest 8th edition but finally with a new army book and lots of great
new mini's ouit it comes. Not everyone likes the Dreadknight for the Grey Knights but I think it's actually quite good and even tempted
to pick one up since I do have an old metal unit of GK Terminators and regular GK squad as well. I did pick Araknarok for the Orcs
& Goblins, quite the imposing model, will be fun to paint. Other wise still gaming lots and running my regular bi-weekly Satruday events.
Updated Sep.17/11 : Well it's been a while since an update, so what's new? Been playing lots, mostly board games though like Gears of War which I also
started painting the mini's, will get some pics soon. Quarriors a dice building game, Rune Age, Quest a time of Heroes, a kind of pick your
own adventure game with a GM, Chaostle, although I haven't played it yet comes with a large board and castle pieces and is esentially a
race for the middle game whilst battling other heroes to get there. I picked up a Necrosphinx for the Tombkings and started painting it and
can't wait for the new Dreadfleet game from GW. A Man O War release sort of, great looking minis which I could use for MOW and I
am sure the new rules will be good. Otherwise there are still several titles I am waiting for like Blood Bowl Team manager, the Runawars
expansion, Rex and Wiz-war all from FFG. I will try and update a little more regular and hopefully I'll see you at a gaming table sometime.
Updated Nov.16/11 : Well it's been another 2 months and much has happened in my gaming world especially the new Necrons which so far I am very pleased
with and some of the new models are fantastic. I already picked up the Annihilation Barge and will soon get the Ark, update January 15/12,
I already got the ark and some characters. Had a couple of games, did ok against a Blood Angels army but not so good in a mega battle vs.
the Orks (actually my own army used by my friends). I still like the new Necrons and will get the Stalker and Voidblaes when they come out.
The new Ghorgon (Cygor) model and Jabberslythe are awesome and my Beastmen will be getting these additions soon. Other then that the
New Year has started out with lots of gaming including Eclipse, Mage Knight the Boardgame and many more new games.
Updated Feb.28/12 : Wow has it been that long already, I am just not that good at keeping my updates going and even my Blog died pretty quick although it's
still up on the net. Anyways there has been lots of new gaming goodness in my life, new games, new mini's, playing lots and looking forward to
So what are newest additions to my collection, Boardgames first: Dungeon Petz, Ora et Labora, Eclipse, Walnut Grove, Venture Forth,
Cuba de Santiago, Mage Knight Board game, Three Musketeers: the Queens Pendant, Gosu:Kamakor, Target Earth, High Frontiers,
Flash Point, LotRings HeroClix, Mecanisburgo, Edge City, Peurto Rico Anniversary Ed., Quicksand, Evo, Takenoko, Road to Canterbury,
Castelli, Days of Steam, Magestorm, Dungeon Run, Olympus, Pergamon, Industry, Hogwarts: House Cup Challange and more. Played
most of them already just a few to still try out.
Miniatures: Infinity Combined Army starter, Noble Armada House Decados Fleet, Ghorgon for my Beastmen army. Got lots of painting
to do and lots of playing as well.
Updated Apr.8/12 : Finally picked up some of the new Tyranid kits, mainly one Tervigon and one Tyrannofex and they are some fantastic models. Going to
paint them soon but also working on Infinity, Heldorado, finishing Dreadfleet and starting an Orge army for our escelation league. Also lots
of new games like, Black Gold, Rex, Warriors and Traders and The Hobbit. Looks like it will be a fun and also hopefully nice spring.
Updated May 30/12 : Many projects on the go the main one being our Warhammer Campaign and I have decided to do the Orges. Ever since they came
out I was interested in doing up an army but more so since the Thundertusk and Mournfang Riders came out. So I've got 500+ points put
together and almost finished painted. I will add images on the Warhammer page and keep it updated as the campaign progresses. I have also
been working on the Tervigon and Tyrranofex for the Tyranids, the Ghorgon for the Beastmen, the Abaddon minis and many other projects.
New games, Sunrise City, Merchants of the Middle Ages, Last Will, Pandora: Grim Cargo, Lords of Waterdeep and more, gaming life is good.
Updated July 8/12: Well the 100 years of Stampede is on this week and we'll be heading out to see some events but gaming in my world comes first (other
then family and friends) and the new 40K has got me excited about the game again. We've played one game so far and I really enjoyed it but
I will need to change the way I construct my armies to utilize the new rules best. I tried an infantry heavy Eldar army versus Bill Ramsey's vehicle
heavy army and it was a good learning experience. Looking forward to trying out my other favorite 40K armies, Tyranids, Orks, Necrons, Tau,
Dark Eldar (plan on selling my old army after trying out the rules and if I like the way they play will invest in the new figs) and Chaos. Been
playing lots of games and adding a few new titles like EDO, Lord of the Rings: Nazgul and Empires of the Void.
Updated Aug.28/12: What a fantastic summer in Calgary, hot and beautiful warm days and evenings, really have enjoyed it. Still played lots of games and
really like the new 40K one of the best editions to date (sorry still not 2nd edition, some nostalgia there), have to try out the rest of the armies
with these rules, Tau, Necrons, Tyranids and Marines. Need to get my Eldar finished and add some of the great new units for the Nercons.
Still picked up some new games recently although being a bit more picky since the wave of new games just keeps coming, Descent 2nd Edition
(excellent), Alba Longa, Tournay, D-Day Dice, Libertalia, Sky Traders and Vinhos. R
Updated Dec.6/12 : Wow it's been a while since an update and lot's has happened since the summer. Our Warhammer campaign is nearing 1,900 points and
my Orges now have a Thundertusk, Mournfang Riders and another unti of Leadbelchers. I am also adding some more core troop as well and
then the Yetis, Sabertusks and some more characters. I have not added anything to my 40K armies lately but there are certainly lots of mins I
would like to get. I did notice however that the Canadian prices for GW product is quite rediculous and compared to the US prices unbelievable.
I really wanted to get the new Hobbit game but not at the cost, someof the mini's are just outragous, sorry GW but I have to draw the line this
time. I have added a few games since August but still being quite picky like Merchant of Venus, Mice and Mystics, Star Wars X- Wing, Mage
Wars, Seasons, Village, Vanuatu and many more. Well I guess that's all for now I will try and get some images of the Orge minis I've done soon.
Updated Feb.2/13: So I have finally found the time to take some pics and add them to the site. There are new images on the Orge Kingdoms, Tombkings,
Orcs & Goblins pages and a Dreadfleet page since I have spent the time on these amazing ships, too bad the game wasn't supported by GW
with expansions and such like Man O' War. But that is not the interest with GW who I believe are just getting way to expensive especially for us
Canadians. I recently sent them an email complaining and they've asked me to call them so they can explain why we pay 20% to 25% more then
the US. Anyways I still love their product I just won't be getting as much of it anymore unless it's a project like our WH Campaign. I have also
gone a bit board game crazy and added Tzolkin, Noblemen, Clash of Cultures, Archipelago, Myrmes, Zombicide, Zong Shi, Santa Cruz, Helvetia,
Star Wars card and more to the collection. So lot's of games to play and minis to paint as usual, life is good.
