Shadespire: Ironskull’s Boyz

L to R: Bonekutta, Basha, Gurzag Ironskull, Hakka.

Continuing my brief painted-ages-ago-and-not-shared-because-of-bad-photography series, it’s Ironskull’s Boyz!!!

I love these sculpts, I think that bar a couple of minor issues that the paint job is decent and, best of all, these bruisers have seen quite a bit of table time in games of Warhammer: Underworlds (AKA Shadespire) in the eighteen months or so that I have had them painted.

So much time in fact that *two* friends who I initially played Underworlds with (Curis and Asslessman) with while using these figures have gone on to paint and blog theirs since, one even having his shown in White Dwarf.

Bitter?  C’est moi.  Have I learned a lesson about self-discipline?  Not really.

Better photo? Worse? I can’t tell anymore. It’s done at least, thats the most important thing.

If you fancy getting into playing Underworlds, then you could do a lot worse than taking these guys and playing simple, straightforward and very enjoyable knuckle-sandwich delivery strategies to get to grips with the Underworlds rules, which are really solid.

Silver Tower Update

All going well there should be a series of Silver Tower related posts appearing here soon.

The Silver Tower Project described a little while ago went rather well and I will write a short report about it soon.  It has made me excited about getting my own fully painted set ready over the next few months.  With that in mind I have put up a painting record page to publicly encourage me to get on with it.

If you fancy a look at the plan, then click on the “Silver Tower” tab at the top of the page, or else just click HERE.

Silver Tower Project

warhammer-quest-silver-tower-banner

Nothing defines the fantasy genre like a dungeoncrawl.

Huge battles with ranks of elves and trolls and the like are all well and good, but a sweaty barbarian kicking down a wooden door and murdering a load of goblins and stealing their wallets is genre defining like no pitched battle can ever be.

This is a bucket list desire for me.  So it was time for a Silver Tower project.

Custom DreadBall Pitch

WinnersDBPitch2013

The O.C.P. Patriots (Irish DreadBall Champions) play defence versus the Zegema Beach Zephyrs (UK & Ireland Ultimate DreadBall Champions) at Thomond Park at some designated point in the future.

I am the current Irish DreadBall Champion.  Mantic supplied me with this prize pitch as a rather nifty functional trophy.

The rigid one piece polycarbonate/aluminium laminate (at least, thats what I think its made out of) arrived yesterday along with a large box of miniatures as a prize for my UK & Ireland Ultimate DreadBall win a couple of weeks ago.  I havent had a chance to play a game on the pitch yet but I hope to remedy that over the Xmas break.

Of minor note is the inclusion of “Thomond Park” on the pitch (top right in the ropey photo above).  Thomond Park is a significant Irish rugby stadium that also hosts the Irish DreadBall Nationals, amusingly enough.  To continue the entertainment value of winning a “sporting” event at Thomond, I asked Mantic to make sure that the stadiums name featured on the pitch.  I havent the slightest interest in rugby, but many of my regular opponents do, so it adds another level of amusement to me being the champ of a “sport” crowned at Thomond 🙂
