First Impressions: Antimatter Games’ Deep Wars

June 11, 2016 Posted by cranky

A friend of mine, several months ago, pointed out a game he was in the process of Kick-starting an expansion to an existing “under the sea” miniatures game called Deepwars. It immediately caught my eye. I started browsing their website and I had to give it a look, and I have to say I’m pretty impressed. I’m definitely interested in spending more time with this game. Deepwars is a tactical miniatures table-top wargame set in an alternate universe, essentially a “Jules Verne” style world with Elder God tech, spells, and some steampunk elements. I painted up a starter warband, and my buddy John has been doing the same, and yesterday we got a chance to play the game and use the rules – we had a blast.


Getting Started with Dropzone Commander

March 9, 2015 Posted by cranky

I’ve been interested in Dropzone Commander for a while now, but just hadn’t pulled the trigger. I felt that I had gotten into something that *wasn’t* 40k with Warmachine / Hordes, and that I couldn’t really justify a new miniatures game (either with time to focus on it or financially). I recently went to LVO and one of my main goals was to check out other games as I definitely had interest, but needed to balance it with ability. I was specifically interested in 30k and/or Dropzone Commander. I was excited with what I saw with DzC, and walked away being keen on getting started on my DzC journey. Check out some pics from LVO on my experience with DzC and some first pics of some of the models I’ve built since.


Tyranid Barbed Heirodule!

August 20, 2014 Posted by cranky

Well then. My blogging on hobby and gaming related stuff has started to follow the pattern of this little gem of my collection – a little too long in the updating! I bought this Tyranid Barbed Heirodule in a Forgeworld purchase WAAAY back in mid 2011. It’s been sitting in it’s package, untouched, in my hobby projects box for over 3 years. 3. YEARS. I finally decided to get around to working on this, after I’d put together a large amount of my Tyranids, took a 2-year hiatus to focus solely on Nurlge CSM’s. I’m as of December of last year working on ‘nids again, and I decided it was time to get this guy put together and completed – once and for all! So he’s been in the workshop for a month or so and I’m proud to say that I now am playing with the big boys with my ‘nids now by having a Gargantuan Creature that I can field with my swarm.


Chaos Vindicator Madness!

December 8, 2013 Posted by cranky

Being somewhat of a completist with my Nurgle Chaos Space Marines army (as well as having several units of Plague Marines having their butts handed to them at the hands of IG Leman Russ Demolisher cannons), I felt compelled to get somd Chaos Vindicators assembled and ready for action for my Nurgles. I love Nurgling up vehicles and these guys were no exception, and in fact I had a blast thinking through these conversions while trying to stay fluffy with the rationale behind the conversions.


Nurgle Raptors painting progress

June 29, 2013 Posted by cranky

I’ve been working on these Raptors for some time, and finally finished 2/3 of them (painted up). A lick of paint always makes them perform better on the battlefield I always say, so these guys are finally ready to deploy in full force for the ruinous powers. I’ve got about 4 more to paint plus a Nurgle Lord with jump pack, and those are currently on my painting bench. I had fun converting these – these were the first minis I made using Green Stuff Industry’s “Tentacle Maker” – I couldn’t be happier!
