WHAT'S GOING ON!!!! So many of you want to play on universal battle but have zero idea of where to get started... Well here is my super sloppy (as always) tutorial on how to get your army started on Universal Battle so you can start testing lists, models and your skills against people from all over the world.

So after 10 days here comes the #3 article from Grumpy guy!
First of all I want to wish Happy Easter and happy holidays to all of you.
As far as me and my hobbying, I played some games, painted some stuff... Did enough for the time being.
Even though I am painting WoDG, I am actually preparing my Undying Dynasties army for tournaments in Novi Sad(serbia) and Samobor(Croatia).
The list I am training with and the games I play against my buddies(and their lists) you can find here: Grumpy guy's skeletons
So, firstly I did some painting on my Annointed Mark of Wrath BSB
That is the last thing from WoDG I am gonna do in a while now.
Afther that I started preparing some bases for my UD army so I can paint and finish stuff I have.
And with some paint on:
I have quite few stuff to paint for my list(Pharaoh, Architect, Harbinger, 40x Skeletons, 20x Archers, 6x Shabti, Sphinx... Well the whole list.). But instead I decided to paint Colossus, because why not.
Cute looking fella. Took me about 3 hours to paint it.
After that I started painting Sphinx,Shabti's and Archers... I probably won't write any articles in about 10 to 14 days until I finish stuff I wrote about.
That's it for now, hope you like it.
Talk to you soon, cheers [Read More]
Two new models to show this week. One very, very large one and one of rather more modest size.
First up we have the Creature Caster Zombie Dragon!
A very large centrepiece model to be sure. Here she is on a normal 100x50mm base
Nicely rotting look with a fair bit of exposed bone and hanging, putrefying flesh & skin.
In comes with a even more decayed head to choose from, but I like this more intact one better
Lovely exposed spinal and wing parts.
Had lots of fun painting it even though I did it very basic. Will say though that I am not a big fan of the resin mix used; it seemed to have some trouble holding onto the paint.
Rider is a bit too bulky for my taste, but its the best one I could find.
Took it from a Games-Workshop Zombie Dragon kit.
And here she is with her base slotted into a larger 100x150mm base for if I want to play with the Colossal variant!
Quite happy with the base actually, came out well.
Decided against a more dynamic "undead bursting out of the ground base" as I wanted the focus to rest on the giant dragon instead of her base.
She's a big 'Un!
Like, massively so.
On the smaller side, I have decided that I want to collect some Dwarfs and since my first order has yet to come in, I went forward instead and painted a character that i had lying around.
He's a Dwarf Monk from Stonehaven miniatures, that I acquired back in 2012, from their first (of many) successful Kickstarter
I just really like the miniature, very characterful and in typical Stonehaven style, has a good amount of details while still being very easy and fun to paint
Choose him as my Dragonseeker because the idea of this old, wizened dwarf running around and punching out a dinosaur, or a dragon is just absolutely hilarious to me!
Went with orange pants to tie in with Shaolin Monks and the traditional Slayer colour
Fancy mosaic base, which I got from Micro Arts Studie and will be using for most of my characters to make them stand out a bit from my troops. [Read More]
Hello and welcome back to another episode of A Tale of Many Gamers.
Unfortunately the podcast has not happened the last few months. I have just moved apartments and my energy has been put towards that end. However, we will be back very soon with some more content. In the meantime, strap in for some updates in the hobby (also a little thin on the ground this month).
This month I painted army which was finished before Battle of Copenhagen. At the time, everything was painted quite quickly, but made so that I could return and do the finishing layers and touches at a later time. Here are the results:
This month Ulrik has made what can only be described as a "Combat Gauge!" Simply for want of a better word. This mad-genius-esq contraption can measure arcs of sight as well as the spacing between units and, I think the 6" panic bubbles. Made by hand from cutting and filing a metal sheet, Ulrik has engineered this to an almost Dwarven precision.
His newly painted master engineer would be proud:
This month I planned on doing a ton of painting, being really enthused after Battle of Copenhagen. But work, life and other stuff got in the way as it always does. I did however manage to get some work on my Pharaoh in chariot model. Even tough I'm not sure it will see any play for some time I really want to finish this awesome model before I move on to something else, lest it ends up forgotten in some box. At this point only the chariot is completely done but its coming along at least.
