The Challenge WIP 2

 So to set the scene: We have 3 players.
1. Zog (here represented by my finger as this wont be glued until painted). He is driving the crane.
2. The Mek. In the foreground of the above picture, weilding a spanner and a "precision tool" - lump of steel pipe.
3. Grub (in green). A Mek's helper.

It goes something like this:
Mek: "Oi Zog, dis way!"
Grub: "Oi Zog, da uvva way!"
Zog: Huh?

The Challege WIP 1

Wow, just wow. I am in love with this Kit.

I have put together a Russ, a few rhinos and plenty of infantry, but nothing has been anywhere near the quality of this kit. It is astounding.

It's kind of like finding that amazing dish hidden away in the chinese restuarant you always ordered Mongolian Lamb from. You wonder where your life was before this point, and what you have to do to get it back so you can experience this more.

Anyway... WIP.

fester's Orks: The Challenge

So to my shame, I turn to my battlewagon kit, and break the shrinkwrap. This is the first Xmas present to see the modelling table.
Now, why do I do this to "my shame"... the music playing in the background is The Final Countdown by Europe.
The shrinkwrap comes off, and I get that feeling of awe cracking this baby open.
You see, in my gamin history, I have cracked maybe 6-7 actual boxsets for my 6-7,000 points of armies.
I have decided that I am not just going to throw this together, and that I am going to make the most of this kit.

Silence is golden

Well things have been quiet here as I do my 3++ content, but for once this is going to be updated before the same post gets pushed over there.

I have found some new focus with my Orks, and hope to put them together (and do some other toys too) by Centurion in March.

On to the filler content I mean hobby update!

This is my Trukk, which is a Gorkamorka Trukk sandwiched between 2 Leman Russ tracks from an old Looted Russ I had laying around.

Centurion - bowing to the pressure

So I have been getting pressure to make some serious changes to Centurion by the WargamerAU community. Now we usually laugh at WGAU as the request you expect is "put comp back in".

To sum up the feeling though, we got to "I want the tourney to be both days, not that shitty Combat Patrol".

I then spoke to some locals, SneakyDan (another 3++ Author) and a few plebs, and it seems that there has been some backlash over the idea of Combat Patrol...
What this means, is that for me to get a decent turnout @ Centurion its time to trim the fat, and lose the Combat Patrol.
