The Loot at the End of the World.

I'm mosying along in my hobby, dabbling in Chaos Space Marines, Pink Horrors and the 13th beast for Tauranga Open. More on that on Kiwihammer list later. Planning on a Daemon review and an alternate Miniatures in the near future for our newer episodes.

Reaper Minis are on their way, so could be here any day as it's been 7 days since shipped. This is what I'm expecting below. Approximately 700 miniatures. Check them out as they've been just released on the Reaper website with prices.

3 Vampire Packages $975 (Paid $225 with Sophie $25 Swapout)

Total at RRP $1413.20 (Paid $496 incl Shipping) So it's a about 60% of a saving overall. Not bad at all. They're doing another kickstarter next month. Woe. This is across 5 of us in the household.

Mantic last wave of Kings of War Kickstarter should be here anyday as well. Looking forward to using the gargoyle's as Bringer of the Swarm for my daemons (and marking some as Tzeentch and other's as Khorne) and the trolls for my Orc army but mostly for my WoC army.

45 Gargoyles.
5 Abyssal Dwarf Immortal Guard.
5 Elf Stormwind Cavalry.
5 Twilight Kin Dark Riders.
5 Celestian Sisters.
5 Celestian Men-at-Arms.
5 Celestian Paladins.
5 Celestian Knights.
12 Trolls
8 Characters
and a book.

Haven't heard much about raging heroes kickstarter but just early days yet. They are 3d sculpting from what I gather. Dark Elves for Games workshop are rumoured for 2 months so RH might kick off their next Kickstarter then.

Mierce next kickstarter is on the 16th September it appears. Hmmm.

My wife and I cracked open the plastic puppetwars a couple of weekends ago and I've started painting some of the little tyches. Quite a novel painting project and makes a break from painting Daemons all the time.

Boring Blogger

So most of my creative energies has been pooled into Kiwihammer at the moment. I'm still looking at doing most of my non warhammer related stuff on this blog so have been focusing mainly on warhammer lately. This blog will retain mostly Flames of War, D&D, miscellaneous miniatures and what not. Here is a little fun I had on the weekend with my Nurgley boys.

How to win a Tournament by the Skin of one's Teeth

Cracked open a copy of old Puppet wars last night and going to paint them up and help paint and assemble the new plastic Puppet Wars with the missus. Cute and evil, they should be a fun project.

Have recieved 2nd wave of Mantic stuff and submitted my survey for 3rd wave, going for 40 gargoyles (for bringer of the swarm) and another 12 Trolls for my monster mash WOC list.

Still waiting on Reaper Bones kickstarter notification. Just slightly peeved it's been 2 months since they first started shipping. It's getting kind of IRRITATING!!!1!

I ended up pledgin 165 for Raging heroes Kickstartr which should be done in...god knows when, just money off into the ether for lots and lots of miniatures sometime in the future.

John from Pukeko Games is closing down and will be getting rid of his stock. It's too bad because he was like the only stockist of Reaper in the country. Damn.

Seeing if we can do 1000 points of Flames of War down the club on Thursday and decide on team names for NZTC.
