Progress Report 9/10/11 - Quick and dirty.

Sorry for neglecting you blog. My hobby life has been full of sadness and I didn't want to share that with you. My large preorder for the new Ogre Kingdoms book and models was canceled and now I am awaiting the refund for the models I paid for to buy more stuff. Sad times. Then I went to the LGS to pick up the new book and walked in at the exact moment they were selling their last copy to another person.

With all of that on my mind I have decided to wait on my Ogre expansion and focus on my lonely and deprived Warriors of Chaos. Expect to see some WIP updates of them in the coming months as I Khorne out with the metal headed dudes.

In other hobby news... our new relaunch of KUBBL starts next week and I am working to finish my Chaos Dwarf team. This one is called Dunger Mifflin (yeah, yeah it's an Office thing). Here is a quick and dirty WIP pic of the group taken on my ipod:

I am really liking how they are turning out. I had to clip the bases off and do some slight modifications to make them fit on to 30mm bases for Blood Bowl, but the random color schemes I am painting them in are turning out nice. The best part is it gives me a chance to practice a lot of painting fundamentals I have been neglecting for a long time. Hopefully they will do well on the pitch!

Next Friday is the Chaos Cup in Chicago! I'll be taking the Nurgland Germs and I just sent in my final roster today. It's a two day event and I don't expect to win too many games but I am hoping for a fun time.

That's all I got for now! Hope to get more content added here soon, including better pics of the finished Dunger Mifflin "dwarfs" as they are completed.

Bummer about the Ogre book getting sold out at your LGS. I picked it up last week and I've got to tell you, it's well worth it!

Thanks for the kudos!

@Tristan - I won't be playing these guys at Chaos Cup, these are for my local league. I'll be bringing my Nurgle team for the tourney. I'm terrible at introducing myself to people... so if you say me please do say hello.
