Thank you DjaliRiot and chadnorth !

My second test-match. And I was honestly surprised AGAIN how smooth and immersive this fast game is.



Lizardmen took the kick-off and Dwarfs picked up the ball. Immediatelly three Saurus players stormed forward. That must have been quite an impressive sight for the Dwarf runner.



He ran away at safe distance from the Saurus players, ready to pass.



The pass failed initiatelly but was later recovered.



The Dwarf runner got blocked and KO'd.



Yet again, the Dwarfs stallwardly recovered and made a run for it.



Which eventually resulted in a touchdown!



Dwarfs 1 - Lizardmen 0



The Dwarfs kick off but the Skinks fail to pick up the ball and it scatters! The stunties are slow but still manage to reach the ball and steal it from the Lizardmen.



They are dangerously close the the end-line and ready to score a second touchdown... Ooow nooooo, a failed pass! The ball bounces around but does not get in reach of the Dwarf blitzer.



The Skinks take the ball, pass and run. They manage to get past all Dwarf blockers. Will this be the equalizer?! Only seconds away from the final whistle... whistle



ALAS! The Lizardmen just-not-make-it! Only 7 squares away from the touchdown. This was close. Very exiting win for the Dwarfs!

While I'm not the best writer, I can still guarantee you this game is very fast-flowing and story-telling. I'm ready for the next game!

The Slann Puzzle

My Lizardmen Slann Lord Mazdamundi conversion is one big puzzle. I am using bit and pieces from various plastic and metal sets to create my version of this famous Mage Priest General.



My metal miniature Slann is missing his feet. As replacements I'll chop off the paws of a purple dragon miniature from World of Warcraft: The Boardgame – The Burning Crusade. His three-fingered hands are perfect for the Slann Lord.

My "regular" Stegadon monster-warmachine is nearing completion too. Again this conversion is a combination of various miniatures and pieces from my bitsbox.



I couldn't have done this without my precious black TEC-7 glue.

Toyotamundi, Hondamundi, MAZDAMUNDI !

Like all Slann, Mazdamundi is a powerful wizard, able to bend the winds of magic to his whims. Being the oldest of the Second Generation, Mazdamundi's powers far outstrip even those of other Slann. Mazdamundi's focus is on geomancy, and he is easily the foremost practitioner of this rare and difficult lore today. On the battlefield, Mazdamundi's fearsome geomantic powers can destroy dozens of foes at once.

When called to battle, which is thankfully rare, Mazdamundi rides upon the back of a giant Stegadon named Zlaaq, a beast he controls through sheer force of will.


I always wanted a miniature for this special character ever since I bought the 5th edition Lizardmen army book. I had high hopes when "Warhammer - The End Times" was announced. GW was producing giant models, but unfortunatelly never a model for Mazdamundi.

The illustration above by John Blanche really sets the tone. But the Mazdamundi character looks more like a Saurus Warrior.
The following picture is more correct. Here Mazdamundi is clearly a Slann toad wizard. Look at those macabre burning frogs raining down...



And so conversion work commences. Zlaaq will be represented by a (cheap) Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures beast. I am using various bits from my Lizardmen bits box. A palanquin from a spare Slann Mage, combined with a throne from the plastic Carnosaur sprues.



I'll add some shields, plaques, standards and golden items here and there.



There's still a lot to be done, but this is a great project!



In a way, he reminds me of the ancient Mayan king Pacal Votan. Author Erich Von Daniken once speculated that this depiction carved into a sarcophagus' lid was king Pacal at the controls of a flying craft of some sort...

for me the most fun part of the miniature gaming hobby is converting. You gather all your spare parts and try to make some extra miniatures. That's how these Skink heroes came to life.

The helmets and weapons are from the Lizardmen Terradon set, and the sculpted rock is actually a battle standard from the Lizardmen Cold One Knights set.



I'll be using them as champions in Warhammer clashes and as Lizardmen heroes in Warmaster 28mm battles.



Both miniatures are based on Skink Archers from the 5th edition Warhammer Fantasy boxed game.



The backbanner is a standard from a Tomb Kings plastic set.

Note: This is the continuation of my retrospective. Following blogposts will be about my old miniature paintjobs and scenery making. All images show work from +/- 15 years ago.

Kroxigors were expensive for students. Well, actually Kroxigors are still expensive. That's why I had these two metal miniatures from Harlequin Miniatures. (I still have them. If you want to buy them, name a number.)



Every regiment needs a leader. I achieved this by simply painting one of the rank-and-file units in a different color. Hence this albino Skink.



Warhammer Lizardmen armies didn't have Carnosaurs in 5th edition. But following drawing by me shows I was thinking well ahead of my time! I believe it is around 20 years old. I imagined Skinks racing big dinosaurs.

Match 1: Lizardmen versus Orcs

Thank you DjaliRiot and chadnorth !

Give or take 10 years ago I played my first Blood Bowl (Third Edition) demo match. I've been collecting bits and scraps of the game since then. Now that my game is complete, it's time to learn and play!



Handbook ready, two teams ready, replacement D6's and D8 ready, DIY throwing chart ready, playmat ready. LET'S PLAAAAAAY!



The Lizardmen kicked off and the Orcs picked up the ball and threw it far left. Unfortunatelly the Orc Blitzer didn't catch the ball and it ended up out of the pitch.



After the throw in by the (un)friendly crowd, a Skink play picked up the ball and blitzed away like lightning. Supported by a heavy Kroxigor that blocked a lot of Orcs he ran for it.



But one Orc stood in it's way. "Y'er goin nowhere reptile!" The poor Skink was blocked and the ball recovered by the Orc team. They made a run for a touchdown on the left flank but one long bomb pass didn't go well and it was the end of the first half. 0-0. Undecided! (Because I quit the game after this. I feel acquainted enough with the rules to start demoing it to friends.)

Cold Blood Bowl

Thank you DjaliRiot and chadnorth !

Blood Bowl (Third Edition) is a game I played once, a couple of years ago. I loved it straight away and bought some miniatures and parts here and there over the years. So far I scavenged Skaven, Dwarf, Wood Elf, Lizardmen, Chaos en Orc teams.
Now it's time to start putting the teams together!

My first team is 100% custom. Minor conversions save me a lot of money, yet still granting all the fun of playing the game.



There are 8 plastic Skinks (with weapons removed) and 4 Saurus players with Space Marine shoulder pads. The color scheme is turquoise blue with red as detail color.



This Kroxigor is an old metal Harlequin miniature. I added some plastic football "gloves" from the Warhammer Ogre sprues.



Cold-blooded Carnage! Lizardmen for the win!

Warmachines? Artillery! But not as you know it.

The Lizardmen are herding large Salamanders towards the enemy and then prod them with spears. The infuriated Salamanders they unleach firebreating upon the soon to be baked targets. Crispy!



This beast is from Dungeons & Dragons: The Fantasy Adventure Board Game – Eternal Winter Expansion Pack. His four handlers are Skinks from various editions provided with extra bits.

If this monster would be in Magic: The Gathering he'd have the "Trample" ability! I think the Lizardmen Stegadon was THE eye-catcher from 5th edition. So I definitely need one (or two...) in my army.



Luckily for me I have found a cheap replacement from Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures: the Trihorn Behemoth. I have glued him on a GW monster base with TEC-7. More pebbles and sand will follow.

Look what I found in my bitsbox. It's around 15 years old I guess:


It was one of my earliest attempts to converting miniatures. But I'll be using the official metal one I fetched from eBay:


Didn't I say I was going to field TWO Stegadons? That's correct. I want Lord Mazdamundi to lead my army against Nagash. Work in progress for his ride:


The arms will be hidden by shields and glyphs. The seat will have many standards and plumes... some slaves even...

Rare Temple Guards

Thank you DjaliRiot and chadnorth !
mbmbmb
My 5th edition Warhammer Lizardmen army cannot exist without a Temple Guard regiment. Unfortunatelly I don't like the (cheaper) plastic miniatures that much. Finding enough 5th edition metal Temple Guards at a descent cost is a difficult task.

I have 4 spare palanquin bearers. They have no arms, but they're Temple Guards! (With the nice skull helmets.)
I am using a regular Saurus standard bearer. The musician is completed by using some bits from a plastic Saurus regiment sprue.

Musician:



BOOM-BAROOOM! Music present, loud and clear.




Kit-bashing:


To create a regiment of up to 15 miniatures I have been combining palanquin bearers, Saurus Warriors and a heroic Old One.


Fillers:


That leaves 5 squares empty. Some regiment fillers are required. I'll be using the obvious: jungle plants and ruins.
