I played the coolest game... ever.

My friend was in town this weekend. He brought with him his BloodBowl team and a copy of the Fantasy Flight Game "Battlestar Galactica".

It is a great game. Ace's Lady - you guys would love it. Honestly. I'm going to have to get a copy - trust me. Ask the wife - she loved it too.

This week in gaming...

Or, at least in painting. Not a lot of gaming goes on during the week. Something about having to drive over an hour to get to the game store to play.

Anyway, this week I didn't get as much done as I needed to (mom-in-law was in town), but the Necromatic Bloodbowl team did get finished - it's headed to eBay early next week. I got enough Gf9 magnetic bike bases ordered. I haven't seen these ones yet - but I built my Dryad Army on the 25mm magnetic bases. They rock - I could do the ork bikers v. dryads on the side of the fridge when I'm done. But, you know - up high.. out of my daughter's (and wife's) reach. :)

That's all I've really got - crappy week at work. Layoffs and pay-cuts. Weeeeeee.

Ork Biker Nob Army...

(aka, "ouch, ouch, oof, ouch")

Played a game this weekend against one of the guys down at the F(not so)LGS. 1500 points. Ork biker nobz (2x8 biker nobz with all upgrades, 2x ork warboss on bike, 1X29 grots) vs Undead Eldar (Avatar, 2x10 wraithguard, 1x5 wraithguard, 5 dark reapers, 2 warwalkers). It was fun, enligtening, and reasonably painful (and yes, it was setup several weeks ago for him to see how that list would run).

I did manage to last 4 turns before being wiped of the board. I did kill enough grots on my first turn of shooting to make him run off the the board, and he did kill one of his own bikers assaulting into cover. Other than that - there wasn't a lot of casualties on the ork side. Armour Save, Cover Save, Invulnerable Save plus a Feel No Pain. Now, granted he was making those Inv and Cover saves like a mad-man... but that's still a very "ouchie" list.

Welcome to the new machine...

Right. For those of you just joining us. I've relocated myself from to here. There were too many fiddly things I couldn't do over there.

So. I've decided not to copy all the old posts over, you'll have to go to to read my older posts.

What I've been doing for the last week or so...



The wife and I have been painting and selling Bloodbowl teams on eBay for fun and profit. The fun is obvious - I do the building and priming, she paints, I base and list on eBay.

The profit from the sale is used to acquire more teams and fund the rest of our hobbies. I'm close to affording my warboss.... :)

Almost Done...

This is just the collection of Ork Biker Nob pictures moved over. They're in no real particular order.
