The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

A new film, and some new minis, what else could someone want. The soon to be released ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘ sees the release of some great looking miniatures from GW. The game looks to be a whole new game system with models relating to the film and possibly the book.

Zombicide is a co-op miniatures board game where you have to move round the game board achieving objectives and killling zombies. The game is made up from a selection of different characters (survivors), each with there own unique style and approach to the game. The zombies consist of 4 different types, the walker, running zombie, ‘fatty’ and abomination, all of which have different attributes ranging from movement to hit points. Zombicide was funded on Kickstarter to help with the initial print run of the game, and to give out lots of brilliant extras to the backers involved.

I do wish I knew about this game to back it during the Kickstarter, the extras and additional models the project was giving out looked brilliant. I hope with the release of the game they will also begin selling the unique characters and expansions linked to the Kickstarter.

Dark Vengeance!


Games Workshop have now annouced the new Warhammer 40K box-set of Dark Vengeance. Set on the world of Bane’s Landing, the Dark Angels are pit against the ever horrifying Choas Legions. The models are looking epic, and hopefully this is an early glimpse of what we can expect from the new Choas Codex.

Trollbloods Battlegroup

Finally found some time to complete my Battlegroup and I’m very impressed with the models. I’ve still got to fill some gaps and add some customised parts with greenstuff but It shouldn’t be to long before I’ve done that. Next step…learn to paint again!?

Trollbloods BattleGroup

The Trollbloods BattleGroup Is a great start for an army and includes some very strong models to help you learn the rules of the game. The new plastic kit has new sculpts for the Impaler and Axer models and also a plastic version of the Madrak Ironhide (Alternate) model. The models do look pretty impressive and should help me with learning the ropes and setting me on my journey to building and painting my Trollbloods army.

One reason why I chose this box set over the original was due to the look of the models. I wanted them to look a bit more ‘armoured up’, to have more sense that they wanted to protect themselves as they travelled through the dungeon, which is where I have set them. If you have seen my previous post of my Dire Troll Mauler, I have switched out the original head for the Bomber head to give the Troll an armoured look. The box set is also completely plastic which allows me to make easier modifications if I wish to.

I currently have this box set on order and am eagerly awaiting It’s arrival through the post.
