Blood Bowl - Nurgle Team - ROTSPAWN - Big Build [and base] TO DONE!

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been to #Warhammer World and as there was a Forgeworld model for #BloodBowl that I needed for my Nurgle team I thought I'd treat myself. It's is a bittersweat treat though. I like the model, a bit. It's painted amazingly but the head is a bit meh! 

Really, this could have come with a 2nd head option, in case you wanted an alternative. Unfortunately though it's not a particularly impressive model.

 For £21 there's not much to it. In fact I put it next to a Battle for Macragge Space Marine and it's only the horns that make it bigger.

I mean it's reasonable enough as a figure but this should be no more than £16 in my book. Then again plastic Genestealer HQs can cost £17.50, so maybe it is a fair price. I just feel I could have done better. I did want one of the Gellerpox Infected from Kill Team Rogue Trader, or even convert a Nurgle Rot Fly, which would have been significantly more impressive. Ultimately I just opted for the easiest solution and now I have to live with it. Remember when I said I wouldn't be buying any more models for the remainder of the year? That was March! So much for promises...

The plan is to treat it as a Witchetty Grub - it's body will be cream, as I can't get that colour on it any other way. Usually the the team colours had cream for the trousers, but it has none. I want it to be the most disgusting player in my team - bring it on. For now - my Great Big Granite Big Build Great Big Build Stamp of Approval. And it also got primed with Army Painter Bonewhite and based, so it gets the Big Build Great Big Granite Base Stamp of Approval too.

Warhammer World - part 2

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been to #WarhammerWorld and in the process took a lot of pics and somehow had a lot of Middle Earth ones. These were mainly for my mate Otty who has been churning out Rohirrim all over lockdwon. We're also playing Middle Earth Role Playing game so maybe it's subliminal - anyway a hobbit hole, is it Bilbo's?

The Battle of Pelennor Fields.

In MERP I just killed one of those Fellbeasts - 1 shot! I mean we had stumbled across a specific Fellbeast slaying arrow in a previous side mission but I got a critical damage role of 93 and slaughtered it. Next shot was the wizard's apprentice - damage 100! I scored over 4000 experience in one session!



Ashley's Scouring of the Shire.

Moar armies.


Barrels of fun.

And there we have it. I made a purchase while I was there, can't decide if I was a 'fool of a Took' for doing so but nevermind.

Warhammer World - part 1

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been to #WarhammerWorld. This was Monday last week and my son returned to universtiy in Oxford [yes, I'm never going to stop reminding folk my son goes to flipping Oxford University!] Anyway, it should have been drop off and straight back but I got embroiled in a scavenger hunt competition, whereby I had to detour to Nottingham to take a picture outside Nottingham Rock City, holding a book about my favourite band Pitchshifter and I'd win ruddy great big red skull for trouble! 

As I was in the area and Warhammer World was on the way back it was rude not to pop in. Obviously I also took a few pictures so folk can see what's on display at the moment.


This battle scene was pretty epic with the railway sidings and the impressive octagonal tower.

Nice use of a Munitorum Container cut in half to make a rail transporter.

Age of Sigmar display.

Some neon Necrons.

Crazy new Lumineth fellas.

Pretty impressive Imperial Fists Redemptore Dreadnought. Liam is going Imperial Fists and has just done one of these. He hasn;t blogged in a while but I will guilt trip him into sharing on

A crazy collection of Knights, with some very cool conversions.



An interesting Primaris force.

Sisters, doing it for themselves!

Mechanicum army.

Ogryn conversions of Kataphron Battle Servitors.



A tweaked House Taranis scheme - blue instead of red.

Aeldari Exodites army

Aeldari on dinosaurs, with guns!

Moar Knights

Chaos United.

Knight Renegade... with wings, obviously!

Another crazy Knight conversion.

Ogres and a BIG dragon.

Crazy Zone Mortalis/Necromunda board

LOTS of Adeptus Titanicus Imperial Knights.

I;ve a second load of pics that are all specifically Middle Earth related coming next.
