Challenge Memories Part 6

 Hoi,

 

By now you will have realised that I didn't overstate it when I said "Blood Bowl Craze" since here's more Blood Bowl stuff for you today! 

First up are a Rat Ogre I have painted for Mark and a referee I did for myself.

The above was my last regular Challenge post, apart from two special ones (which I will show you later in more detail) and the "wrap up post".

See you soon!

Cheers Sander

More Blood Bowl and the 600th post!

 Hoi,

As you might have guessed from the title of this post, this is not a Challenge Entry rehash but a rather new and original post, featuring new photo's of figures not shown elsewhere earlier. 

As our Blood Bowl craze set off earlier this year, Roel asked me to paint up his Ogre team. He had a few wishes for me to adhere to, he wanted the team in purple (yeah I know) and covered in lots of tattoos. So I set to work and the pictures below show the results of my labours.









While I am not particularly fond of the "Ogre Kingdoms" background GW did for the last version of WFB, these did turn out rather well I think. One of the Ogres got left out of these pictures since I haven't finished painting him yet and I might actually show him to you later on.

Apart  from the above, this post also happens to be the 600th post for this blog, which is rather an accomplishment I gather! So I am off to have a toast to myself now,


Cheers Sander

Challenge Memories Part 5

 Hoi,

More Cybertronians today with some of my favourite Autobots as well as one of my Challenge favourites the Ankh, Gods of Egypt game figures.

As the Galaxy Quadrant had a planet "Cybertron" I just had to paint some more autobots and here they are:

Martijn asked me to paint the miniatures of the Ankh game by CMON games and these are brilliant. They took me forevere due to the huge amount of details and outlandish colourschemes, but they were a true painters dream to do!

See you next week! 

Cheers Sander

Challenge Memories Part 4

 Hoi,

 

This week we bring you more Blood Bowl madness and some old school Heroquest figures. Let's start with the Blood Bowl entry, this is the Snotling team I have painted for Martijn. He chose them for the looks and sillyness they cause on the field, rather than for playability. We played one game and he immediately decided he disliked the pumpwagons and wanted to exchange them for two trolls.

The Heroquest entry this week contains some of my Chaos Warriors. They have been basecoated for ages and I never got round to painting them. This resulted in having to proxy them in most games both here at home as well as at school.

Let's see what next brings us right?!

Cheers Sander

Challenge Memories Part 3

 Hoi,

 Another batch of Challenge posts up for you guys right now! Let's start with some 40k goodies. While the new gameplay is humongously complicated with all the special rules, abilities, stratagems, objectives and whatnot, the miniatures and background are still only second to CBT. So here is my re-paint of some old favourites: Gaunt's Ghosts. Not the ghastly new models, no I still swear by the old metal ones. Gaunt himself is missing because I am rather afraid of messing him up...

LINK

The second post for today is more Blood Bowl stuff. Some years ago (it must have been 2018 or 2019) I bought Mark a Skaven team, which he then misplaced. When we re-discovered Blood Bowl and started playing in seriousness, he bought a second team and...predictably found his original team. Since his eyesight doesn't allow him to paint anymore, I painted up the first 12 of his rats for him as well as an old white metal star player for myself. Enjoy!

Challenge Memories Part 2

 Hoi,

 

More Challenge posts for you to peruse! The first post for today is one in which Battletech features heavily. I have always loved this game and it is still gowing from strength to strenght with all the new stuff Catalyst Game Lab is churning out these days. As I also like the old 80's Cartoons I grew up on a lot, I jumped at the chance to paint some Transformers looking mechs ;-)

LINK

Next up is another Blood Bowl team, this is an old skool Ork team I painted up for my co-worker Menno who wanted them done in fresh and clean colours so: ERE WE GO! ERE WE GO!

LINK

Both these entries were listed in the CHallenge subsegment called the Galaxy Quadrant and while I had intended to go to all locations, a house renovation that went along earlier than planned threw a spanner in the works and I had to cease painting for 2,5 weeks!

Oh well, more to come next week!

Challenge Memories Part 1!

 Hoi,

 

Today we start our tour down Challenge Memory Lane with links to my first two posts for the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge Season 12.

First up is my starting post of a great pair of miniatures by Wargames Illustrated: the Christmas Truce 1914 soccer match. I really wanted these figures for a long time and got a chance to buy them at the last Crisis convention from the WI booth directly. Here's the result!

 

LINK

The next  link will sent you off to the figures from the core box of the game Mansions of Madness. This is a Cthullu miniature game Roel asked me to paint for him, the quality of the figures is awful but the game seems to be rather nice. 

LINK

That's all for today some more links will be up in a week!

Cheers Sander
