Ambush near Jonstown

Ilduvu surrounded, but too hard to get down

Another fine RQ evening yesterday, with the party liberating a group of prisoners destined for Pimper's block. When Giomanach's enemy Ilduvu shows up, the fight goes nasty, and the party needs every resource they possess, as well as the aid of the liberated prisoners, to save their sorcerer from being hacked to bits by the Griffin Shape nemesis.

Some new goodies based...

Rackham Barbarians
Hasslefree Bar Dwellers

I'm working on the Mad Knight lot, it seems the trolls are gonna get done first, I don't know why, but I'm always painting them up first. A lot of variety in this range, you gotta love them, even though you can see the evolution, the earlier ones are a bit cruder, although full of detail, and the more recent mini's - I think they are - have a better finish, better proportions. But maybe I'm wrong, maybe there's two sculpters, love them all though. Meanwhile I based these lads up, I bought them at Salute earlier this year. With these based I have barely any lead left, although there is still a lot to paint that is based and even primed.

The sound of industry

Left to right, trollkin, dara happans and imperials, trolls and broos, and some already painted trolls and adventurers
Slowly but surely I am getting back into the habit of spending a few hours working in the hobby room every week. I finished repairing the last batch, and giving them a good protective coating. I managed to start the new classification system in the rpg room, so I can find specific NPC's more easily. And I just finished whitewashing a bunch of miniatures, including trolls, trollkin, lunars, and a few broos. That way I can have my 30 minutes of painting every day, just pick up where I left off the day before, and slap on some paint.
Here they are in all their glory. The Mad Knight Imperials in particular look great, and I look forward to painting them a lot! Probably gonna be finished first, after the painted ones are ready, of course. With the Glorantha miniature kickstarter's lots of new miniatures coming up, I need to make some room before the end of the year!

Never stand in a dinosaur's way.

Triceratops charging through the caravan

We started playing RuneQuest again yesterday, the story will appear on the Hiording Blog shortly. Alex, Anthony, Ben, Maxim and Urbain showed up for a session, they intended to escape The Ernaldori tula and head east. We're using RQ6, a sandbox adventure of my own, and some of the NPC's courtesy of Erkki's new Enemy Generator for RQ6, which turns out to be a great tool, albeit not completely finished.

Music soothes...

Workbench update

Some slightly modded Otherworld trolls.

A lot of stuff lying around screaming for attention. I order to get the blog moving again, I'll try to regularly update with some stuff I'm working on.

I use the Otherworld orcs as RQ dark trolls, some slight adaption of the snout is in order.

Restart of our RuneQuest 6 campaign

Some nice primitives for Prax and Monster Island!

Business has been slow in my little hobby-den lately: a cold winter, making it rather unconfortable to sit there, was the first reason for decreased activity. The job requiring more effort, and a general increase in sports and training time, took care of the rest. Before you know it, you're at a standstill, too knackered after work, too tired after running, too cosy in your couch. The blog suffered as well, of course, what to tell if there is nothing to tell? With the campaign in Sartar relaunching, I'm hoping I can get some more regular painting sessions in. Work still is demanding, and with 4-5 training sessions a week there's not so very much time left. Still, with some planning it must be possible to have a session or two a week.

Here are some nice primitives I acquired at Salute in April, I finally came around to basing them up. The mimis are from Steve Barber Models. There's more stuff, which I hope to post up later this week, matter of getting some life back into the blog.
