Picked up a copy of Bloodbowl from Ebay which arrived yesterday, going to have a few games today with friends, brother in law etc to see if everyone likes it and then it'll be getting teams bought in and painted up for a league. Much fun.

ACW Base Test

Okay testing sizes of bases, in the blue uniforms, arrayed in 4 x 1  1" x 1" bases with 4 figures to a base. with a seperate commander base on a 2p, will probably be made to a 1" x 1" base as well if I go this route.

In the greys on the right, arrayed in a 3 x 2  40mm x 20mm bases with 3 figures to a base. Commander integrated for blackpowder, can be seperate for Warmaster variant (Still to be tested)

I'm not sure I like the one on the right so much, I can't get 4 wide on that size base, and 2 deep doesn't quite fit either, however it will leave enough space along the back of the base to put unit details on if I want to go down that route.

The ones on the left, looks a lot tighter and more regimented, but not sure how I want it all to look. Loose or tight ranks.  The ACW wasn't as tightly regimented as say the Napoleonic era where the left one would be a no brainer for the look of it, but at the same time, does the one on the right look too loose.

BKC Germans

Seeing as I'm taking pictures, here's my finished (So far) WW2 Germans. Couple of WIP's, my painting competition entry and then the finished ones. Fallschirmjaeger on the left and middle, Heer on the right. Everything is from Pendraken, the infantry are German Para's Army Pack and added are the 2 Pak40's, 2 Stug III's, 3 Opal Blitz Trucks and 3 SDKFZ 251/1's. The draught horses are some butchered high elf chariot mounts for warmaster.

So next for these I need another 6 transports for the company on the left, the Heer will remain on foot and the addition of an Engineering section and some Panzer Companies to finish it all off. Then it'll be the Russians up next.

Dystopian Wars

Well that's the main bits of my Empire of the Blazing Sun all painted up. Still got details to pick out and insignia to add on the paintwork but they'll pass a basic exam for tabletop use.

Need to see about the lighting for taking pics, and i'm still not sure about how dark the Cruisers are, the missus thinks it makes them look worn.
