No Game But Plenty of Hobby

So I got a few hobby related things done over the weekend.

Managed to pick up my copy of “Thanquol’s Doom” from GW on Saturday morning but have only managed to read the first two chapters. Already there is enough back-biting and bullying to keep me happy!

On Saturday morning I dropped off the riders from my Ironblasters, Thundertusk and Stonehorn, along with three Finecast characters to Charlie to get the Stripy Pants treatment. Spiky Five Bellies’ Insane Clown Posse will soon be fitted out with the latest Ogre contraptions – however there is talk that Spiky himself may have been inducted into the Dark Arts of the Great Maw and so will take the field as a Level 4 Slaughtermaster.

Yesterday I put together the first Ironblaster and my Thundertusk. They are fantastic models and fit together with minimal fuss. I’ll need to do some slight filling on the big guy but nothing untoward. After putting it together I managed to convince Tim that it will make a great model for a Warshrine for his Warriors of Chaos.

I also put together the heads, torsos and legs for 24 Tomb King archers. The heads (sourced from Hoards O’Bits) are from the Tomb Guard and considerably more ornate. The plan is to paint these up and either include them mixed into existing units or to replace archers without headwear.

Finally I called in at the Warlords for the first time in a few months. It was good to see around 20 gamers participating in some 40k campaign action. Good on Hagen and John for persevering with this. They’ve obviously scratched an itch.
