  • After breaking the ice in my "pilot" article here is another one from Grumpy Guy :D

    So after I painted EDC and Hellscream Cannon and told you some stuff about me and my buddy today I'm speaking few words about our YT channel and BR we're going to do. And also I'm posting some pictures of stuff I painted in the last few days.

    GRUMPY GUY GAMING - YOUTUBE


    So this is a channel my friend initally started as his own for Warhammer 40,000 battlereports and to present to community the stuff he painted. After a shortwile I decided to start recording 9th Age battlereports and was thinking of starting my own channel. So we decided that wouldn't be such a good idea because there is more chance we will get more subscribers and views as one channel so we decided to go in this long-term project together.

    I've just checked the channel and there are no 9th Age BR, why is that?

    Simply because I am busy and lazy bastard. We want our channel to have some standards like playing on nice battlefield with nice terrains, table and most important with armies painted. The last one I don't yet have. I can't say when can you expect the 9th Age BR's. I simply plan to finish my UD army (4500 points atleast) and start going on tournaments in my region. Plan is to go to I. T9A ETC Bootcamp Team Austria(Wien) with painted UD army so I could say I'm planning to start battlereports somewhere at the start of May.
    After I do my "pilot" episode I will do a pool here on my blog so everyone can suggest me what to improve and so on. Also plan is to publish one episode every week, for now.

    That is all for that matter now to switch of to models I painted.

    Chimera :WDG:








    Wasteland Steed Chariot (old metal model) :WDG:









    There are few more things I have to do before I can tell the model is finished (base for Chimera, base for Chariot, pinn the crewman, etc..)
    Simple but effective(I think).

    Hope you enjoyed #2 of Grumpy Guy blog, talk to you again next week with finished Colossus for UD and some really nice bases for UD. :UD: :sand:

  • As we all know, objectives play a fairly big from in 9th Age but just using coins of plastic markers is a bit boring.
    Much nicer to use something that fits with the army.


    For the Vampire Covenant, the Dead Sage holds a great many secrets about the undead, how raise them and more importantly for their foes... how to destroy them.


    For the Beast herds, we have the traditional Herdstone. Which I made form spare bits many years ago, back when Herdstones where still a actual thing.

    For the Kingdom of Equitaine, we have two wounded knights


    The first one is defending his downed horse


    The second one seems to be quite unhurt. Surely she is okay?


    Oh no, maybe not....

    She's using the Coat of Arms of the state Church of Sweden





    Apart from that, I also got some more Knights Forlorn so that I no longer need to use mercenary Imperial Guard to fill out my unit. Not being one for doing it the normal way, I got some Dwarves at Arms from Macrocosm's recent Kickstarter


    They are quite lovely little fellas





    The first one comes from Tomelilla, home of several authors and actors, as well as a well-visited summer park




    This one hails from Mjölby (Flour Village) and proudly bears the two mill wheels on the city, which has a school of goldsmiths (I didn't even know there was any official schooling for that!) and train operators.



    This musically inclined dorf, will replace my current (badly) converted Forlorn musician.
    Wearing the colours of Älmhult birthplace of both Carl Linnaeus (Carl von Linné) the famed naturalist and the very first IKEA store as well as a IKEA museum




    A strange one, this one. Wearing not municipal, but political arms. Namely the Carnation and folded red cloth of Sweden's Left Party which was founded from communist roots, though they have mostly left those behind





    Wearing the classy fir trees and snowflake of Mullsjö is the leaderdorf. Mullsjö has a museum of Scandinavian folklore which i now want to visit.




    And lastly, the dorf I am perhaps happiest with, with a very fancy surcoat this one also doesn't have municipal heraldry


    Instead wearing Sting, one of Sweden's most well known mascots, being owned by Expressen, on of the "Big Three" newspapers in the realm.

  • Finally started on one of the two ID units I do not currently have, so here are the first 10 of my Orc Slaves, using the Westwind Orc Sword Regiment, which I quite like.


    Looking nice and aggressive , rather more hunchbacked than GW orcs are, which fits well in their role as slaves here.


    Heads and weapon arms are separate and there's about 5 or 6 different bodies, witch makes for a good variety


    Quite heavily armoured as well, is scavenged plate and scale armour with some chain thrown in for good measure.
    I think they look heavy enough to be able to be used as Iron Orcs as well

    The pteruges on the leader are a nice touch.


    This one had perhaps the most impressive overbite I've seen on an Orc to this date


    The weapons are not overly large like GW ones tend to be, but nice and brutal in design


    The heads are all good, I like the hood on this one


    Two of them lack shields and instead have a armoured. clawed gauntlet, for some Wolverine-action


    Two of the more impressively armoured ones. Not the shields, they look almost as dangerous as the swords! Just as a Orc shield should!


    A small statuette on the helmet, likely stolen from a shrine somewhere


    They all look good and brutal


    The rarest of things; and Orc that understands the value of blocking!


    And the one I'll use as the leader: slightly bigger and bulkier with a nice fur on the shoulders.


    Quite the good set of models. Metal, all of them. At 14 for 10 of them, the price ain't bad either. [Read More]

  • Hello to everyone this is my first blog article on 9th Age page.

    So who am I and what do I do?

    Fellow hobist doing various hobby stuff.

    Firstly, I am currenlty in project of finishing two armies; Warriors of the Dark Gods and Undying Dynasties.
    So I will post pictures of stuff I finish and paint.
    Planning to post stuff every 2 or 3 days, depends on the spare time I have and the things I get done.

    Plan is to finish Undying Dynasties by the end of April so I can start recording 9th Age BR's and attend most tournaments as possible.

    Here and there I will also post stuff that my friend does as he is Pro-painter and his miniatures and stuff he do is simply amazing.

    Also, I will post the stuff we do for our local gaming club (facebook.com/KMMPanonniaMinor/) like terrains, scenic stuff or finishing some army or maybe organizing some 9th Age event.

    In my "pilot" post I will post few pictures of what I painted last few weeks for my Warriors of the Dark Gods army, before switching to Undying Dynasties.

    Elder Dragon Centaur - EDC








    Hellscream Cannon





    I would say I'm not much of a painter but I'm getting better with every miniature :D
    So here it is, the first post to "break the ice".

    Talk to you soon, in few days to be precise. With more WoDG models and bunch of other stuff coming, so stay tuned! [Read More]
  • "Before you can paint like the masters of old, first you must master your body!

    You will only be ready for your training once you have acheived a push-up!

    That's right... a push-up with your thing... until then, you will deal with my assistant 2DSick....."


    Dooooooooood! You wanna scrap the old paint job eh?




    To dispose of the evidence, follow this guide. The perfect crime ;)




    Any snags, get back to me. Once you've got got the basic colour layered up, we can talk brush control. it's allll in the hips baby ;) [Read More]
