Queek Headtaker of Clan Mors

After all these weeks, while I was painting anything but my beloved rats, I’m finally going back to my personal project and army – Skaven. About 3 weeks ago I was playing 5. edition battle against Dwarfs (battle report available on my blog), plus I got into Warhammer 8th edition tournament (report also here:). And that was good opportunity to paint some reinforcements to my army. First of all, I painted bases, lots of bases. All my Skaven units were based on just simple green plastic bases with no rocks, sand or grass. Just ordinary plastic. Little bit sad and pathetic, I know, but I didn’t have any time to get them done. So, with upcoming event on the horizon, finally the time has come to base all of them (120 models:), to made them look good during battle against Dwarfs and WHFB tournament. Next thing. I thought, I may use Plague Monks (in both events as well). I had these nicely black primed models from the times of 3th, 4th and 5th editions, just …

Battle Report: Warhammer Fantasy Battle 5th Ed. – Skaven vs Dwarfs (2000 points)

Another battle report coming your way! And I’m back to The Old World and good old 5th edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battle once again. The battle – my Skaven vs Remo’s Dwarfs – 2000 points. If any of the rules, skills, magical items or simply anything is unclear, just ask. I am more than willing to answer all questions about 5th edition. This battle was really special for me. I had quite a break from WHFB in general, and even longer from Herohammer (as sometimes 5th edition is called), so it was big reunion for me. Remo came to Warsaw from Opole (300 km away) to attend to Warhammer Fantasy tournament the next day, so we grabbed this opportunity to play the battle. I was speed painting Plague Monks for entire two weeks, just to be able to use them in the battle. So, please ignore their bright green hoods – they will get proper look any time soon. I promise:) The battle took place in Bunkier Hobby Store in Warsaw. Perfect place for battles. …

The Pestilens is spreading!

Oh, that was precious time in Thailand. Well, in Asia in general. I had huge doze of fun here and for sure I’m going to miss whole region – my favourite Malaysia, but also other countries. I plan to get back here, not in near future, but probably in about 2 years I want to visit this area again. Right now – destination Warsaw, Poland and I’m going to settle down there for few months. Exactly like one year before, when I got back from Central America. …but for now, I’m still in Thailand. Last 5 days. And I have few miniatures already painted, photographed and ready to be presented here. First mini from this new batch, is Skaven Plague Priest for Warhammer Fantasy Battle (how to tell a difference between WHFB and Age of Sigmar these days? It’s simple – if the base is squared – it’s WHFB, and if it’s round – it’s AoS ;P ). The model comes from the plastic kit Screaming Bell/Plague Furnace, that provides two assembling options. I’ve decided …

Battle Report: Warhammer Fantasy Battle 8th Edition – Skaven vs Dwarfs (1200 points)

As I predicted, the rate of posting new entries on Game of Travel significantly dropped down. During my entire stay in Australia (over 3 weeks) already I haven’t been able to post even one entry on Game of Travel. I painted only for few hours over that time. Arriving to this nice, such different country made me forget a little about mini war gaming. I had awesome time in Brisbane, Sydney, Blue Mountains, Kangaroo Island, Adelaide and Cairns – cuddling Koala, feeding Kangaroos, snorkelling on Great Bareer Reef. All of these activities – they can make you put in the nice holiday lazy mood – that you are not feel like painting or writing… Well, right now my holidays are over. After some perturbations, I’m on the Cairns airport sitting and waiting to my flight to Perth, where I can get connection to Bali.…It was awesome time, but it has been too long – Game of Travel need to be updated here and now. No matter the holidays and no matter my laziness – time …

Battle Report: Warhammer Fantasy Battle 8th Edition – Skaven vs Bretonnia (1400 points)

And another battle behind me. My small (but still growing) Skaven army lost with Bretonnians this time;). What a bugger – the battle was tight and my rolls were so disappointing, so I could probably assume if they were a little bit better I would won this. Well, it happens. I played with Adam from our small FB Warhammer group in Bunkier Store  in Warsaw. It was nice game. Actually two games – and I lost both… First scenario we played was Blood and Glory, which I lost very quickly – my general died in first turn killed by some ugly Bretonnian spell and my Clanrats panicked and fled of the table due to almost entire annihilation by hit of Trebuchet’s stone. And the braking point reached. I can diplomatic say on my defence that I didn’t want to play this scenario – I do not like it at all. I played it few times and the battle ended too soon. First or second turn. Playing on small points, it’s very easy to achieve victory …

Ding! Dong! Ringing the Screaming Bell

The war is going on next level. It will to be more cruel and meaner. My Skaven will start wining from now on, marching  proudly in the echoing  rhythm of The Bell. Screaming Bell (wishful thinking, I know:). Finally, I managed to finish this awesome model. I started it quite some time ago – I think it was around 3 or 4 months ago. I have small problem with war machines. I got easily bored with painting wide wooden or metal surfaces. I prefer to paint small detailed miniatures. So, this Screaming Bell was painted in few stages. All interrupted by some other miniatures, I was particularly fond to paint at the moment. I think I painted during that time around 10 models or so. OK. But the day has come, last week. I think it was Friday. And I said to myself – My God, I could paint The Bell for ages if this will continue. So I’ve pulled myself together and I’ve finished The Screaming Bell in one go. Until end of the …
