[Open Combat] First Game!

A new local gaming club has started up nearby, so I spent a few hours on Saturday night playing my first game of Open Combat!

We made a LOT of mistakes, but had a really great time - and are we're both working on new warbands and looking forward to our next game.

[Deadzone] Starting Forge Fathers Strike Team

Here's my starting Forge Father Strike Team at 100 points.
I thought I'd put my faith in Mantic Games, and start with the example Forge Father list that they've recommended in the rulebook.

Steel Warrior Huscarl

Deadzone Ready!

I backed the Deadzone v1 Kickstarter back in June of 2013, and it's taken me this long to finally paint some Deadzone models! 
I should point out that these aren't the models that came with my Strike Pledge (those models are still mocking me from my pile of shame), but part of the new Forge Father Starter Set that I picked up after Deadzone v2 was released - I couldn't resist sci-fi stunties!

When Deadzone v2 was released, Mantic Games was awesome enough to send everyone that backed Deadzone v1 a PDF copy of the rules, so I printed out the rules and sleeved them in a display book. 
Now, all I needed to play Deadzone v2 was the Command Dice and Token Set, which I picked up yesterday!
I have the very high quality Deluxe Gaming Mat, and have the awesome Deadzone terrain that came with my Strike Pledge all assembled (meaning to use them for MERCS), so I'm all set for Deadzone terrain!

Anyways, I'll post up some individual model photos of my 100 point Forge Father Strike Team soon - stay tuned!

[KoW] Filthy Moon Tribe - Spitters

Here are my three Spitter regiments for Kings of War, which are the Goblin Archer models from the Battle of Skull Pass set.

I didn't add too much yellow, and chose to keep the arrows red so that it would be easier to distinguish these models from my Rabble regiments.

Well, that rounds off the infantry units I have planned for my army - next I'll be painting through some of the goblin character models I've got lying around, and working on some objective markers too!

[KoW] Filthy Moon Tribe - Rabble

Since posting my initial photo I've slowly been repainting the Goblin Spearmen from my Battle of Skull Pass sets (I have two sets), and I've finally finished all 6 regiments, or 3 Hordes, for Kings of War.

I also decided I would colour the eyes, which is something I generally avoid, but it wasn't so bad once I got the process down.

For Kings of War I'll be using these troops as Rabble, as opposed to Sharpsticks (even though they clearly have spears) because that allows me to field more goblin infantry as part of my Goblin army!

Next up, the Goblin Archers!
