Blood Bowl Custom Throwing Templates Review - Darksun 41


via IFTTT I recently ordered some custom lasercut Blood Bowl throwing templates from http://ift.tt/2kfDm5a and thought id do a little product review for my first vlog of 2017! New House, New Year, New Vlog! I'd really recommend getting hold of one of these if you can. They are really reasonably priced, and work really well as prize support. The letter customisation is really easy, and the guys at Just Lasered at great :). Full Disclosure, I do know Melvin (the guy who runs Just Lasered), but i did pay for these and he's not giving me anything for them! Music from bensound.org

Kath Scarlet Repaint Video - DiceHate part 3 - Darksun 40


via IFTTT So Kris Sherriff from DiceHate and I have collaborated over a mini series on the Firespray. This repaint is part 3 of the series, and it turned out that I went for a green and white design! You can find the other videos in this mini series on Kris' channel (DiceHate) but just in case, here are the specific links: Part 1 - (where we waffle on about the paint jobs): (TBC) Part 2 - (Kris' painting video): https://youtu.be/ApUXoFPXsE4 Part 4 - (where we waffle on about lists): https://youtu.be/63NxVvSHn_Q As you can see, I've gone for a faux Kath Scarlet scheme, to tie in with the rest of my scum fleet, and i'm reasonably pleased with the way its turned out. Really enjoyed collaborating with Kris, if this format proves popular then we might look at repeating it again in the future. We potentially could start moving onto more current ships.

Blood Bowl Battle Report - Elven Union VS Dwarves Darksun 39


via IFTTT So a quick battle report from a pre-season game that I had this week with Matt Sheffield. His Dwarves faced my Elves. Suffice to say, lots of tense rolling of dice followed. My over thoughts? Special play cards are fun, and damn im rusty at this game! My Team was: 1 x Thrower, 2x Catcher, 2x Blitzer, 6x Linemen, 2x Reroll, 1 Apothecary Matts Team Was (I think): 2x Runners, 2x Blitzers, 2x Troll Slayers, 5x Linemen, Lots of Rerolls, 1 Fan Factor Music by Ben Sound.

Blood Bowl Paint Jobs - Darksun 38


via IFTTT Getting ready for the new Blood Bowl Season - finishing off paintign some extra catchers and an old school wardancer. Im probably gonna give Elven Union a try, and so im not sure what the Wardancer model will be. I need to dig out my Squig as hes the Head Coach. So the Wardancer might end up being an extra fancy lineman, or maybe the apothecary. With thanks to www.bensound.org for the music :)

Blood Bowl Paint Jobs

So been painting up my final dudes, with some nicely highlighted glutes. Particularly pleased with the cloak on the wardancer, turned out way better than i'd hoped. Wet blending really helped!

Bolt action league results

So last night I won my bolt action league! Here is the proof: 


I went 7 wins with 1 draw and 2 losses over the last couple of months. Very pleased with the overall result obviously, but also since I've not really played bolt action prior to this term, exstatic to have a the juggernaughts trophy for a short while. 

You can watch my latest vlog about bolt action here:

X-wing Nationals - Top 32 Cut and beyond! Darksun Life

So not only did I make the top 32 cut for the UK nationals of X-wing, I went almost as far as i could possibly go! I won't ruin the surprise for you (although, trust me id be shouting myself hoarse if i'd won the whole thing!) but I hope you enjoy the Vlog!

I know the blog side of things has been a little lacking lately, TBH I'm really enjoying vlogging and sharing my hobby in that fashion! Plus I don't think i've picked up my 40k stuff much in the past couple of months. Im planning to start seriously getting into my Bolt Action in September, so expect to see pictures and battle reports from that! I havent forgotten about my hobby season pledges, and in all honesty i think this bad boy gets the biggest, baddest completion stamp that i can find! So here it is:
Until next time,
