Dreadball: Ver-myn Team

Another couple of games under the belt, and the surveys have been sent out for season 2, which has made me realise that I'd better get on with painting season 1!  So team no. 2 has been painted, these 'ver-myn' (not skaven oh no definatly not).  As with the corporation team I've given them a coat of gloss varnish to help them survive the rigours of play.

Below are the two guards, in a team with no jacks the couple of guards you do have take on quite a significant role, nice models as well these.

Next are the strikers that make up the bulk of the team.  The top 4 are nice models that I like, however the second variant (in the bottom picture) I don't like so I've given them numbers at the end of the roster so when the extra ones come in the next package I'll barely have to use them.

And finally I've also painted up the refbot!

The Hobbit: Kili, Fili, Goblins & Elves

More from middle-earth today starting off with the dwarf brothers Fili and Kili.  The fili model is a bit flat, but kili is excellent.

Next we have the last of the goblins from the goblin town boxed set, they've been suprisingly fun to paint.

And finally a few elves, a metal Gil-Galad and 4 plastic wood elves.  Origanally I painted gil-galad with the dark hair that is normally painted on this model, but it didn't work so I've switched it to blonde.

Dreadball: First Games & Corporation Team

I've finally had a chance to play Dreadball.  Admitedly I've only played two games at this point, but I can report that I like it a lot.  The mechainics are different to blood bowl, but the two games did feel related, although Dreadball is a lot quicker and doesn't seem to stagnate.  Both games went down to the wire as well with one even going to sudden death!

It's obviously early days, but at the moment it seems to be everything I'd hoped for.  You can see throughout this post  that I've painted my first team as well representing the human corporation.

One thing I haven't got the hang of yet is how to use jacks in the corporation team.  Whilst they are of course flexible and can perform either roles, they're just not that good at it! It seems you only want to use a jack if you really really have no other choice.  To be fair it might just be that I haven't figured out how to use them yet, but jacks currently seem to the games weak area.

You might notice these minis are a bit shinnier than my usual ones, thats because they've had a coat of citadel 'ardcoat as they will ineviatbly have to put up with a lot of handling.  I've left the bases clear for now, but I'm undecided if I like them like that and am tempted to paint them black all over.
