Off to Chaos Cup 2012!

It's that time... time to drag out the Nurgland Germs once more and lose a bunch of tournament games in glorious decaying style! We're packed up and headed to the Chaos Cup for the weekend.

Spent a bit of time the past month or so working on these two sick and rotten chaps for the Chaos Cup Nurgle Legacy Team. I chose to paint up a Nurgle Warrior and a bonus Rotter. Pretty happy with the results. Tried using my light box for a couple quick shots and learned I need to practice with it more. No time today though! Gotta hit the road! 

I also did a quick touch-up and refresh of the Nurgland Germs but photos of that will have to wait until I get back next week. I'm hoping the newly painted Germs will do me proud - prediction for the 6 games? How about 1 win, 3 ties, 2 losses? I would also settle for the 2/2/2 or more wins and ties than losses. We shall see! I am bringing the same roster I brought for last year's event and we all know how that ended. I can't believe it has been a year since I had a local league and last touched a WHFB model!! HOLY CRAP. Anyway... see you on the other side of CHAOS!

A merry Deathrolling compeition begins!

Why hello there poor neglected blog! I've been cracking away at some non-hobby projects which have eaten up some of my gaming and painting time, but I just came across something that literally had me drop everything and start scrounging in my bits box:

Ultimately the goal is to have a Deathroller model for use in a Deathroller race of some kind (some rules and ideas on that here as well) and what better way to encourage the building and usage of these deathmachines than holding a competition?

Here is where I have started after about 10 mins work with my bits. Still have a ways to go but the basic structure and idea are coming together:

A Gnoblar driven scrap heap begins to take shape...
So what are you waiting for!? Dig into your bits box and start scrappin' together a rolling deathmachine worthy of the name.... DEATHROLLER.
