The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is here! You can read all about it in the news.
Welcome to Episode 30!
Another gin infused episode of Ammertime Podcast(This is becoming a tradition). Casimir the Swede and Henry discuss in detail the new Warriors of the Dark Gods Background(and little about the Artwork).
We take almost a page by page view of the book. This episode does contain a small discussion about the new "Favours of the Gods" rules but is mostly just background discussion.
A mighty 4 hours of profanity, this episode is not for the feint hearted! Let us know what you think!

Episode 11! Thats a year of hobby (I missed a month)! It would be great to get some feedback on this "series" if anyone actually enjoys seeing what we have done each month. Is there something you would like to see more of?
"Mercenary" WIP. I've always wanted to do a unit of Mercenaries, but since I'm a practical being, the prospect of modelling 7-8 unique models that all have to be magnetized was a bit daunting. I do love converting, but this specific project was just something that I had to push myself into. I decided to help myself with some easy bits, that had been used by many other ogre players, and if it turns out too "ordinary", I will have a new hunter model at least!
I have continued to work on my WotDG Pestilence project! To paint my once Chosen, I have used full Duncan's Painting Guides on Youtube, and the entire army is built around the colors he uses in those videos. My first thought was to make it a swamp theme with cliffs. However as I just bought a winter table (as you can see in the latest 9th Scroll), I decided to change the swamp to an icy lake. The Pox walkers behind the bases will be my barbarian regiment, along with some Games Workshop Nurglings. I used the same techniques for the walkers as I used for the Once Chosen. The Snails will be used as warhounds and were made from actual snail shells and goblin spider legs. I am hoping to have a game ready army for the Danish tournament Battle of Copenhagen in February.
This month I have been really trying to clear my painting table for space. I have so many models and not so much space. I had half painted my Vampire Spawn so finished those off. They were a bit of a modelling project as I had lost 2 legs somewhere and re-positioning the models to fit the ruined building was a bit of a task! I like to add some humans that are getting eaten/killed etc to give the army a bit of character, and this was no different.
The Bats were taking up a lot of space and only took a little time to paint. They were done using exactly the same scheme as the Vampire spawn, down to the eyes, to give coherence to the bats of the army. I also added some unfortunate humans being chased and carried off by the "Happy Bats"!
After breaking the ice in my "pilot" article here is another one from Grumpy Guy
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.
Wasteland Steed Chariot (old metal model)
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.
