Relic Knights - Kickstarter Arrived!

In September 2012 I got really excited about a Kickstarter project called Relic Knights by SodaPop Miniatures (of Super Dungeon Explore fame) and produced by CMON.
I backed the project a little too enthusiastically, opting for the Gotta Get 'Em All Pledge, which was one of every faction!
It's now August 2014 - and here's what arrived in the post today... I'm an NOT looking forward to cataloguing to confirm my entire pledge is here!

First Kings of War Game

I met with a local group of great Kings of War players over the weekend and had my first game of Kings of War, using my Goblins! Here are some photos from my 1000 point game against an Undead Host, which took just over an hour to play! Had a blast :)


End of Turn 1

First casualty - my 'Regiment' of 'Fleabag Riders'

End of Turn 3

My first kill! Horde of Zombies

End of Turn 4

End of Turn 5

My opponent took the win, our game ending after turn 5, killing off double the models I killed (points-wise). Great game against a fantastic opponent, very patient and friendly talking me through my first game :)

Dice Trays

I love dice. I love the feeling of shaking a fistful of dice, the feeling of throwing them down and watching in anticipation on the results of the roll.
So much so that I have various dice towers in my terrain collection (both from CNC miniatures, their standard dice tower and two of their portable dice towers).

But now I want dice trays! Don't ask why, because I don't know why. Anyways, checking out available options online didn't really yield any products I'd be willing to pay for, but I did happen to stumble across a great looking DIY option.

So the next time I went shopping with the family, I kept my eye out for an appropriate looking photo frame - ideally a square shape with the right 'depth' for the dice to sit in the tray without rolling out.
It wasn't long before I stumbled across this set at Big W (a department store we have here in Australia):

It says AUD$10, but I actually got it for $8 - even more of a bargain!

And here's a photo of each frame, with some standard d20s in there for scale

After cutting a piece of felt to size, and slipping it on top of
the glass, my dice tray was ready.
Note that this is the smallest photo frame in the set, and
Dreadball model and 10mm d6 dice are for scale.

Dreadball - Cobalt City Crushers

With the arrival of my new Azure Forest Pitch, I thought it was time to finally finish off one of my Dreadball teams! So here's my Dreadball Forge Father team finished - The Cobalt City Crushers!
It only makes sense that players protect their most valuable assets - so as well as re-enforced cups, the Crushers also have extra protection around their beards.

Dreadball - Limited Edition Azure Forest Pitch

My Limited Edition Azure Forest Pitch arrived yesterday, ordered from Mantic Direct, and I couldn't be happier with the product and postage!
The board is the same high quality as the original Dreadball board, and the level of detail on the thing is phenomenal. Looking forward to some Dreadball action on this badboy!
My order was dispatched on Wednesday July 23rd (according to the email notification from Mantic) and arrived Tuesday July 29th - amazing! Less than a week to deliver from the UK to Australia, and it only cost USD$5 for postage - that's the fantastic service I've come to expect from Mantic Games.

Click to enlarge photos! But please note that the photos are taken in less
than optimal lighting... it was the best I could do getting home from work!

Cheapside Terrain - Steampunk

Taking a break from my Kings of War armies, I thought I'd put together some of Cheapside Terrain's buildings I've had lying around (I think these have been in the cupboard for almost 2 years now...).

[KoW] Undead

A few army shots of my Kings of War Undead Army. I had the Abyssal Dwarf Sorcerer left over from my shelved Abyssal Dwarf Army (The Crypt Kings Clan) and I thought he would make a great looking Abyssal Dwarf Necromancer for my Undead Legions!

Unfortunately this army is on hold for a while - I've got a few other projects on the go, but do have plans on completing my Undead Legion in the near future :)

[SDE] Royal Paladin... again!

After finishing the rest of the heroes, I thought that I should paint the Royal Paladin a little closer to the house colours, so I made his hair a very light brown/grey, for a little more of a 'rugged veteran' feel.

[SDE] Deeproot Druid... again!

I decided to repaint my Deeproot Druid, to match his Angry Bear form...

And a photo of the pair for scale:
