From the Spire: Battlefield Birmingham Day 2 After Action Report

So Day 1 had been a bit of a bust.

We decided to go for a curry and then back to the air bnb to watch a bit of tv before hitting the sack ready for day 2. 

My first game was against an Imperial Fist player, should be fun!

Cletus Bramble rogue doc.

Cletus bramble specialises in amputations, usualy in the field of battle and usually using his rusty saw blade. Simply seeing his approach is usually enough to get most gangers back on their feet and into the action.
A devout man he is often seen in the service of the brotherhood of the cleansing flame.

It is unsure if any of his medical equipment is in a good state of repair if indeed it works at all. 

His results however cant be argued with ...... especially if his patients dont make it.

From the Spire: Battlefield Birmingham Day 1 After Action Report

So as promised here are my bat reps from Day 1 of Battlefield Birmingham. I'm going to call this day the clipping of the wings...!

Hear ye! Hear ye! Hear ye!

"Hear ye citizens of the hollows! The up worlders have been encroaching upon our fair town. They have shook our very heavens with their ordinance.
We shall shake their very bones with our reply.

They have driven our kin from their shores.

We shall drive our steel through their hearts!
They come to pillage our heap.

We shall purge them with flame.

They have taken our homes.

They will never take our freedom.

Together we are strong.

United we shall prevail.

We shall bare arms against them. 

Our time has come to claim our birth right.

The spider man will have them for dinner tonight.

All should make haste to prosper by this opportunity. 

Come one, come all.

They shall rue the day they invaded our sanctuary. 

So it has been writ.

It's about to be writ again.

For the corsemen cometh.

So mote it be!

The Muties are coming!

Greetings Hivers!
I've hit a bit of a wall with my Marionettes at the moment (a Trigeminal Neuralgia built wall, that means I'd rather smash my head through a wall than hold a paint brush), fortunately our good friend Rob is banging out the miniatures.
These Muties were knocked out in incredibly quick time and as much as I love him, I hate him in equal measure for being able to paint so quickly 😉

They're still work in progress, but I simply had to show them off...and getting Rob to post on the blog is almost as big a pain as my Neuralgia is....

The Town Crier is my favourite, but really I think they're all great and will look great alongside the Coarsemen in our up and coming adventure.

Until next time....may the Hive Spirits watch over you 😉

From the Spire: Battlefield Birmingham 17 Pre Engagement Report

First up I've decided to headline each post I make about my new army 'From the Spire'...

And secondly, this weekend is my first event with my Raven Guard. Although it is a custom chapter and eventually I settled on the name Shadow Raptors.

The Marionettes 2.0 (part 1)

Greetings Hivers!
Now that the Coarsemen have been painted and with Rory's excellent Squaduary recently finished, I thought it was high time I finished my Renegade Mechanicus gang.
Some of you may remember that I pledged them for last year's Squaduary and although I got them base coated in time, the camera on my phone packed up and they never saw the light of day. This proved to be a blessing in disguise because I had rushed some of them and I wasn't happy with all of the poses but mainly because we have been play testing them to make sure they aren't over/underpowered and the weapon load outs have changed a bit.
So this will be a small series of posts detailing the very belated progress of my gang, the Marionettes.
