Progres report 9/19/10 - Nuns and fun.

Here are the Nuns (which will be playing the part of Amazons) for my Blood Bowl team all based and primed.

Started getting the base coat down for the skin and habit on the catcher there. Not looking forward to painting black and white on the same model for the first time but I figure it will be a quick way to learn!

Not much else going on in the world of Warhammer and Blood Bowl. Planning out the next issue of the Bellower, working on painting my Ogre BB team, and playing the occasional game of BB as well. Haven't gotten in any games of 8th ed WHFB since last month, something I am hoping to rectify this week. In the meantime we have one of my other favorite hobbies (and recently much neglected here on the blog)... beer!

Full Sail Brewing Company - Full Sail Pale Ale

Beer Type: American Pale Ale

Appearance: 12 oz. brown bottle with the tell tale Full Sail label - tan/gold with blue and white lettering. Light amber in color with a thick off-white head and some slight lacing.

Smell: Something grassy and green with some sweetness to it. Can't really smell much hops.

First Drink: Really sweet but not in a cloying way. Initial sweetness gives way to a bit of malt and some banana/citrus flavors.

Mouthfeel: Not as smooth as I normally prefer, a bit of carbonation gives this some bite.

Last Drink: A little more of the hops comes through at the end and as the beer warms but not nearly as much as I would expect from a Pale Ale.

Drinkability: Easy to drink but not a lot going on here.

Notes: This beer has a pretty loyal following but I doubt I will be going back to this one when I want a pale. Reminds me a bit of Alaskan Pale Ale but I liked that one a little more.

Verdict: 3.25 out of 5. Not bad but not outrageously good either. A good pale for those who are afraid of hops perhaps?

Cool Blood Bowl team, though I would call them Stripper Nuns, not just Nuns.

Not that that is a bad thing. Far from it.

They don't all show that much skin. That one in particular is (the one with paint on it) is one of the more scantily clothed models.

The team name is The Bloody Marys.

So you painted the most scantily clad one first?
