The Adventures of the Dice Bag Lady in the land of the Vikings.

So Baggy of Bad Squiddo Games decided to have a holiday adventure in Sweden. Of course dice bags are not allowed out of the UK without their herders, so Annie had to come as well. Actually it was Annie who needed a well deserved vacation and decided to pester her customers visit some random internet dudes friends she met online.

For one reason or another almost everyone dropped out, except for the Scandinavian Lardies (that's me, Jocke, Thomas and Koen) -- from now on known as Annie's four Swedesketeers.

Return of Ghosts of Gaia AND a giveaway.

I just want to give a heads-up about Annie's latest kickstarter Ghosts of Gaia II.

The miniatures depict post-apokalyptic female warriors with mostly breathing masks and various protective gear. A couple of young kids , an ogre (ogress?), beast with handlers and a cyborg will also be included.

I've gone for the 90 pounds pledge but opted for some add-ons as well.

Personally I'm planning on using them as Feral Freeborn for Gates of Antares, and perhaps also as Steel Legion militia for the new edition of 40k. They will fit well in with the regular steel legion troopers that also has breathing masks.

If you are more attracted to furry subjects there's also weaponized bunnies as well as human-guinea pig crossover... I think... not sure exactly what it is.

Anyway, there's 46 hours left and we have already reached several stretch goals, so there's no worry of failing. But I like Annie and her work and want the campaign to succeed even more. So did anyone say giveaway?

Well, I got an extra "Raging Annie" -- unpainted -- that Kevin White sculpted for Annie using her as a reference. I will be giving it away to one random follower who promotes the kickstarter on their blog.

All you have to do is promote the kickstarter on your blog (before it ends, you have 46 hours, go go go) and leave a link in the comments. If you have already done so, please do it again if you want the mini.

Good luck!

Bases and blisters

This blog post feels like it has been a thousand years in the making...

 A couple of days weeks months ago I reviewed the Age of Sigmar Hero Bases, and now the time has come to take a look at the Warhammer 40k Hero Bases. I bought them shortly after the AoS ones, now that the 8th edition of 40k is looming around the corner I was reminded about these bases and dug up the photos I took back then.
The first sprue with some large pieces on it. Is that a Leman Russ turret? (Yes it is...)

The second sprue also has a bunch of large stuff on it, although not as large as the first.
Unlike the AoS set there are no single piece bases in this set. There are also only eight bases compared to the eleven in the AoS set.
