Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

My trip to Essen SPIEL (Germany)

flag msg tools
An incredible cheap haul! May I present you my loot from Essen SPIEL 2013:

The Heidelberger stand had a queue. Now I know why. I bought Magestorm, Bobby Sitter, Pony Express, World of Warcraft: The Boardgame – The Burning Crusade and World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game for only 33,- Euro's!

I just had to have this RoadZters game (with 3 extra ballz). I fetched it for 15,- Euro's.

The Zooloretto: Iberian Lynx was free!

When I left for Essen, I planned to buy the Warhammer Fantasy Battles (8th Edition) "Coven Throne/Mortis Engine". It had a 20% discount so I bought it for 40,- Euro's.

The 2 carrying cases by Feltherr are for transport of my Necromunda gangs. I payed 15,- and 20,- Euro's for them.

The 6 blister packages for Blood Bowl (Third Edition), Leviathan, Warmaster and Warhammer were 30,- Euro. (Came 5,- a piece.)

But this is a blog about miniatures. Well, I did find myself a well priced Vampire Counts Mortis Engine. Since I play Warhammer 5th edition, I'll be using it as a Black Coach. (The spare bowl with blood will be used as a Dark Elves Cauldron of Blood.)

A keen eye will spot a Leviathan super cannon top right in the picture. I managed to score this vintage resin miniature for only 5,- Euro.

This will become my Earthshaker Cannon for the Chaos Dwarfs. Because my weekend was overshadowed by my trip to Germany, I did not find much time to work on conversions nor painting. But I did glue me 4 extra Black Orcs for my Chaos Dwarfs army:

You'll notice some minor weapon swaps to create some variation in the unit.
