Age of Sigmar! All hail Father Nurgle!

Well I finally did it – I jumped into painting models for AoS. I can’t wait to get a game in. I have tons of 40k Daemons, and so I figured I’d use those as a basis for an AoS army.

Had to get him and paint him up, and get that much closer to playing AoS with my own painted army. Check out my first AoS specific miniature!

Zone Meatalis!

The name says it all – what could be better than good friends, good food, and Horus Heresy Zone Mortalis? I had some friends over to Chez Cranky for some Zone Mortalis games and some good slow-smoked BBQ (hence the “meat”…). Much incredible food was brought over by all and vast quantities of it were consumed before a great 3 on 3 battle of Zone Mortalis for the Northwest 30k‘s In the Shadows of Isstvan campaign. Much merriment, good cheer, full bellies, and lethal Zone Mortalis action was had! Pictures within – check it out!
