John Baptiste

Some Warzone painting to start the year. The miniature is John Baptiste, a trader working for some mega corporation, who ends up being a traitor to mankind supporting financially the forces of the Legion. Came in the Mutant Chronicles RpG miniature pack, with full rules to be played in Warzone. You can see some of his abilities in a previously posted battle report. I've tried to stick to Paul Bonner's illustration that inspired the sculpt. The purple outfit and the grin are reminding of the Joker, but it was not intentionnal this... [Lire la suite]

Bring on The Thunder!

Finally the first 2016 painting... That was supposed to be the last of 2015 :( Anyway, here is my version of Psycho Sam. This miniature was produced by Copplestone Miniatures, paid by the US Oldhamer community. Their tribute consisted in a miniature who could take place in the punk future version of Warhammer 40k, the very old Confrontation, ancestor of Necromunda. The mini itself is in "true 28mm". Still great fun and looking. US Oldhammerers were kind enough to send some in France, and thanks again to JB, it was then sent to some... [Lire la suite]

John's Dark Secret

First 2016's posting on the beginning of February... Yeah i know... Well then, first battle with Warzone: Resurrection! It took place quite some days ago and several events happened since, so my memory is a bit blurry about it. I'll try to do my best. 1000 points game, Legion VS Brotherhood, as usual now. I wanted to play again the Behemoth and try the miniature of the Lord John Baptiste. Second miniature painted in 2016 (pictures coming). John is an actual living human. A trader guy who nicely works for his corporation.... [Lire la suite]

Warzone Resurrection: Roberto must Die

2015's last weeks have been quite busy so no painting for me those last weeks. Yet, some gaming. With my friend Pulm we recently fought for the third part of the mini-campaign we started for Warzone Resurrection. The campaign is based upon scenarios provided on cards with the limited edition Icarus Jetfighter pilot. It was also an opportunity to test afain new faction rules Prodos released some weeks ago. Balance overall and remake of faction's gameplay. We've already tested it once during the second part of the campaign, with a few... [Lire la suite]

Some old that is new and some new that's getting old

ok so two new painting miniatures for today. Not my personal best but surely not my worst right ? First things first, the Oldhammer Goblin limited edition. This miniature was kindly sculpted by Kevin Adams and casted by Bryan Ansell's factory to celebrate the Oldhammer Day. Thanks to JB (see Leadplague on the blog list on the right) who had the mission to give some to local oldhammerers, i earned the exquisite pleasure of receiving one to remember my very humble (yet extremely pleasant) involvement in the first French Oldhammer Day...

The Way of the Necromancer: Final Episode

It's finally time to talk about my trip in the city of Lyon for one last time. Quick reminder: i've been at the Octogones 2015 convention in Lyon to be part of the first french Oldhammer day. However, two buddies from my gaming club were also going at the event, to dispute a tournament of the long-dead all-father of modern skirmish games: Confrontation, by Rackham. I was quickly seduced by the opportunity of finishing my Necromancer trip in a tournament of another dead game during the night. So i decided to be a part of it with my... [Lire la suite]

Battle Report: Warzone Resurrection

I had planned that my next message would be once again about my Necromancer-trip to Lyon, but it was supposed to feature some miniatures i still hope to finish to paint before end of the month. So instead a battle report about a quite modern game (well, still with the taste of the unlife in it considering the universe..) today, and my mostly unpainted army: Warzone Resurrection! I've been playing WZR (yeah, that means Warzone Resurrection) since quite some time with a good friend of mine and accomplice in most of my gaming... [Lire la suite]

The Necro-gaming Marathon

So it happened, on the 4th of October, i was in Octogones in Lyon for the first French Oldhammer Day.   First thing first, several tables for several games were there. Some particularly inspirational. I would love to play a good game of Warzone (or any SF big skirmish) on those:   Then on to the Warhammer game. Vengeance of the Lichemeister for Warhammer 3rd ed. Nico hosted the game on a beautiful table with awesome sceneries he prepared, with his rather famous incredibly looking miniatures. It was my first WFB 3rd... [Lire la suite]

The way of the Necromancer

Tomorrow i'm going to the city of Lyon, where several people are organising the first French Oldhammer Day. Heir of the Oldhammer Day which takes place in the Wargames Foundry factory each year, it is finally happening in France, on a smaller scale of course, thanks to the Octogones Convention and a few very active French Oldhammerers.   As i could not be in the UK last summer, i did what i could to not miss this moment in France, and so it is happening!   On Saturday morning i will have the extreme luck to play The...

Launching the blog

Why launching this blog ?   Because i own a huge lot of miniatures i don't paint. But i don't like unpainted miniatures. I am a slow painter but a pretty active collector so my personal vault is quite big and filed with wonders of many eras and many manufacturers. Unfortunately this ended in starting to play with unpainted miniatures quite often and painting just from time to time. Which is a shame since i do like to paint miniatures. But i don't like to paint clones. See what i mean ? Nowadays i like to spend some time on a... [Lire la suite]
